Today we went to Catherine’s parents house in the countryside, its a lovely place but need slots of work. It has fantastic potential to be a superb property if it were finished.
Left to right pictured below – Huge workshop, stables, main property
We had a BBQ, which involved steak burgers (not like the crap you get in UK), brochettes (aka kebab skewers) and sausages (well French ones as seen below!). Oh before you wonder these pictures were taken in 2009, not 1979 😉
Next came the goats cheese we got from the goat farm the other day, pictured left to right in strength. They are all the same at the start, its how long they are left for that makes them like this!
Goats Cheese 1 is creamy and mild, not that I tasted it, errk!
The second as you can see slightly more yellow is harder and stronger in taste, still no chance of me eating it in anyway shape or form!
Then comes the piece de la resistance, the cheese that looks like you left it in your fridge for a year, its not even green, its gone black! More chance of me being best mates with Derek than eating any of this one!
Alas I was put to shame by Emma who did indeed eat some of both of the weaker cheeses, Catherine had some of the black one and said it burnt your mouth it was so strong!
Then me and Emma decided to tidy up the leaves in the garden, boy what a job that was!!
Emma found a birds nest, it was not in use and we put it back where we found it.
Then Catherine and Emma played “Play Doh” shops, which turned into them disputing over whose creations were the best!
Then it was back to Orleans, where we took Emma to McDonalds for dinner, two car loads of British people arrived whilst we were there, always feel like you need to speak to English people when you are in a foreign country for some reason!
Anyway, its off to Zoo Parc Beauval on Tuesday, weather is meant to be terrible, but hey ho! Check out their website, it is a fantastic zoo and I highly recommend it, should you be down this way! Web link : http://www.zoobeauval.com/
