Mr U-t-B was back in France a few days ago, back where we'd been on holiday in the summer (lucky him!)
He was able to bring back something that made my heart sing.
Not chocolate or even cheese.
Not wine, Ricard or Birlou.
Not even a French sewing magazine or two.
Photos of a very young happy couple...
Derek and Doris (aka Dou-Dou and Vanille) are now living happily together in the same field.
'Shall I give her a kiss for the camera?' he said.
'Oh, Derek! I'm shy!' said she.
Doris is still a slim young thing.
I do hope her flanks will be more rounded next time I see her!
Thanks for having a go at my near impossible 'Guess where?' game. Well done to Penny B for the brilliant and spot-on suggestion of army training grounds near Aldershot and Farnham.
In fact, we were at Caesar's Camp, only a mile or so from home. But it felt like we were a long way away, somehow.
