The age of chivalry is gone. That of sophisters, economists and calculators has succeeded.

Local Herbs

Strange how one day can bring so many highs and lows. Yesterday’s delights ranged from wine tasting at a beautiful vineyard to smashing a hole through the floor of the house. Adrian was not in the best of moods and a serious water leakage did nothing to lighten his mood. Today we put our dinner on at 8am and slow cooked it above the fire – beef, mushrooms, tomatoes, local herbs and fromage blanc. As I sat eating it on the common land outside the house I was overcome by a intense feeling of well being. Either life is good or Adrian isn’t telling me precisely what the ‘local herbs’ are. Either way I missed Laura and had to text her immediately.
