While it’s not mine or Nic’s birthday for a while just yet, they are close together. And Paul treated us to a gorgeous early birthday present – lunch at Le Jardin des Sens in Montpellier. It’s one we’ve been to before a couple of times (lucky us ….) and it didn’t fail to impress this time. Divine…… thanks Paul!

In recent years I’ve not worried too much about seeing in a new year – and am often in bed before midnight! But this year decided to go along with some friends to Chateau Le Vergel-Authenac, only a couple of kilometres from here, towards Ginestas.
To be honest I didn’t know it existed – it’s in the middle of vineyards and mostly hidden by trees. Apparently a few years ago, a couple bought it from a French family that had done nothing with it for a long long time, and have turned it into a gite complex and reception venue. And from what we saw of it, it looks magnificent. The reception hall we were in was huge and renovated beautifully.
The food wasn’t anything to write home about, but the entertainment was excellent – similar to what the Maire in the village puts on here for us once a year. Cabaret/Can-Can style. A good time was had by all, and I managed to be in bed by 3am! And suffered the next day for it, but once a year I can manage.
