A New French Word

We learnt a new French word during our few days in Brittany last week. It's "boueux" and it means muddy.
This is because we had an excellent couple of long(ish) walks the second of which was boueux in the extreme. Boueux, my arse, it was a bleedin' swamp - like trying to walk through three or four inches of water lying atop quicksand. The photo shows Mrs TheMillbrooker avoiding a particularly soggy piece of track having clambered over a wall and a minor rivulet.

Previous visitors to Le Bout de Sac will be pleased to know the garden is looking fairly decent after last year's marathon planting effort so this summer's evenings lazing on the patio should have a slightly more pleasant aspect.
We also reached the momentous decision to stop advertising the place as a holiday let, it's simply not worth the effort for a teeny-weeny monetary return. The link from this blog to our website about Le Bout de Sac does still work, so if you're feeling nosey do please feel free to take a peek at the place, but the site hasn't been updated for over a year and the house is no longer available for letting except to friends and family (we'll invent the cost as we go along). Mind you, if you're reading this you're probably one or the other of those anyway - so if you do want to stay at Le Bout, just give us a call or send an email.
