Elma Family Kitty Pip

Snippets from France


image image image image We’ve been in France for almost 48 hours now and already I’ve had a genuine legitimate conversation in which I got to use the words “emplacement” (camping pitch) and “poubelles” (dustbin) and in doing so scratched a Francophone itch that has been burning since I was taking GCSE.

We’ve also had a nice long chat with an old man called Michael, mostly about the cuteness of Pip, though sadly we were unable to ascertain whether his equally lovely wife was named Marie or their surname Dupont. However I am now convinced that Tricolour 4 (my French textbook) may be coming true!
