Just in time for this week’s hotly anticipated (ha!) heatwave – I have some time off and am going on a little jaunt with my family.
It’s the first time that Mum, Dad, my brother Alex and I have holidayed together in at least 25 years (and no, I’m not revealing my age!)
I’ll give you a few clues as to where we may be going… Firstly from Mum’s garden…
Secondly, I expect to be drinking this (in moderation, mesdames et monsieurs!)
And thirdly, we shall be staying within a stone’s throw of this beautiful piece of work…
Answers on a postcard, please to:-

La Belle France!
Apart from the lovely markets and the Bayeux Tapestry itself, our trip is as a homage to my uncle, Bill Vernon, who fought in Normandy and helped liberate many of the villages around where we are staying.
I hope to be posting some poignant and interesting photos with help from my brother, who should have been a military historian, such is the breadth and depth of his knowledge of, in particular, the two World Wars (although he seems to know a great deal about most historical conflicts).
Needless to say I will be taking a few projects with me… More on that later!
