Summer, Travelling

Postcards from France

St Tropez 2013 - 155

Salut mes petits cochons, it’s me, Mademoiselle Met. I am still here, still in France, albeit a little more pureed dans la tete than I was before. What can I say, it’s hot down here and the availability of un verre de rosé (or two, or three) at lunch (and dinner, and in between) doesn’t help matters.

St Tropez 2013 - 435

Petite Pea turned 11 months. We celebrated with her first ever chocolate pudding

As usual, it’s gorgeous in the South of France, and I keep on asking myself why again we have to live in London. Don’t get me wrong, London is great, I love the big smoke, yadi yadi blah blah and all that jazz. But wouldn’t it be nice to have it both? Spend the summer here (and by that she means June to September) and the rest in the city?

As usual, we are not doing much: beach, pool, shopping (mainly food), eating and sleeping. It’s nice to know you did all the things you wanted to do and still have a couple of days left to play with the water hose. (The girls are ecstatic. Water hose. Best. Thing. Ever.).

The excitement of playing with a water hose. Priceless!

Never mind that there’s the beach AND a pool

I even chose my annual Gas Bijoux bracelets. I tend to get three each year and don’t take them off until they need replacement the following summer. But more of that later, my lovelies. Must top up suncream now. Bisous!


  1. sounds perfect. I see no real reason you couldn’t move down there for the Summer! sounds perfect to me. Looking forward to seeing the new bracelets- love those.

  2. Good to hear everything is going well and everyone is having fun. If there’s water near by my kids are in heaven. Your little ones must be loving it. Assume the door lock issue got sorted! And you’re looking good in a bikini MM!

    So nice to kick back and relax for a while. Which bracelets did you get? I have my eye on the Scaranouche one. I don’t really need another but the beetle really caught my eye.

    Met mum, what did you use on your c-section scar? You cants see it. They must have done the incision very low. I’m 8 months post partum and using lots of oils/creams. Any suggestions? X

    A perfect way to spend summer. I am with you in that I could live that way all summer.

  6. Every time we holiday, we feel the same. Husband wanted us to move abroad years ago-LA but I wanted to near the follks. He grew up in SA so yearns for all year sunshine. You look HAWT girlfiend-amazing bikini shot!
