I'm off to the Charente-Maritime for a fortnight, next thursday, staying at the in-laws pile in the Hennessy vineyards. I shall be mostly drinking and barbecuing, and now that my wife has a driver's licence, she can do some of the bloody driving.

That area of France is vying in my affections with the Cote D'Argent (that area that runs up the coast from Bordeaux) as the place to which I would feck off and not come back, the day after we win the EuroMillions.

OK, I'd come back if we got to Wembley, or something. Maybe.

Yup, same. They paid something like £120k for their gaff and it’s massive. 60m2 sun room alone, big gardens, parking for 4 cars in the car port, nice and peaceful. I’d move there in a heartbeat if my eldest wasn’t so entrenched in the UK school system (and if I could get a job there). Maybe when we’re looking at retirement, unless Brexit scuppers everything.

About to set off for Cognac now. 570 miles + the car train. 33C there today, so back to the scorching heat. Wish me luck.

The weather we had on Tuesday was perfect for me. Warm but not too hot. More of that please.

Tuesday down here was Ok. Sunny intervals, but in these parts we are usually a few degrees cooler than the south-east in the summer (but warmer and wetter in the winter) so it was a little bit chilly for me to sit out in. I found the hot months we had this year almost perfect for me bar one or two days where it got up to 30 degrees.
