Ah yes, that time of year is almost upon us. Well, in truth, for those of us lucky enough to to have a small French hideaway, one of those times of year is almost upon us.
But it's a longer-time-of-year thing this time. For the first time in I don't know how many years, Mrs The Millbrooker and I are taking a three week long break.
And so these pages will be quiet for the rest of July as assorted house-sitters and garden looker-afterers and cat feederers take over our normal every-day duties whilst we fritter away the remainder of the month tramping across the Breton countryside, eating fine foods and drinking decent plonk. Not necessarily all at the same time, although the idea has a certain appeal...
So, my blog reading friends, au revoir for a while and thanks for sticking with my seemingly never-ending stream of drivel.
See you again in very early August.
