What a lovely way to start the day…..
Last Friday, as usual, François and I headed over to the “Marché du Vendredi” after dropping the kids off at school. It’s a weekly pleasure, going to the market with a list of things we must have to create all of the wonderful little dishes we’ve dreamed up to prepare for our little family, and always coming home with twice as much as we planned.
This time, we came home with more than we expected! As we stood in line at the butcher, trying to decide on a veal or pork roast, we were greeted in English by a beaming lady from Blog Land! She asked us if we were American, then introduced herself and her husband. They’re from New York, and have owned a place here for about ten years. Just about two years ago, they moved here with their daughter (who happens to be Charlotte’s age!!). She’s heard about my blog (!) from a friend who also lives here. Since there’s a big picture of both of us on the main page, she recognized us at the market. Talk about a small world!
I’m so looking forward to getting together with Ellen and Will for coffee sometime soon, and to meeting more people around and about Béziers. I’ve been toying with the idea of getting together a monthly meeting, at a café or something, for any other anglophones living around here to get to know each other.
