Things French, life in France,
general wittering and the odd rant.
Hey Sarah Happy Birthday! How are things going? I am intrigued by the idea of "60s campari cocktails" and hope you'll tell us what they were when you get over your well-deserved birthday hangove. As for me, I haven't been around in a while because I like to get out and about in summer, but now that autumn is closing in it's back to blogging for Frip.
Hi Frip, things are going okay here thanks. Campari was popular in the 60s apparently so I bought some for my 60s birthday party last weekend. Funnily enough, everyone preferred to tuck into the wine and champagne. :)
Happy birthday, Sarah. Enjoy the party and the bike trip. Campari - ah, that takes me back..... :-)
Thanks Perpetua. I enjoyed both and the Campari. :)
Have a lovely weekend. Ventoux is on our bucket list, but with the road bikes.......mad fools
Thanks Jacquie, we did, saw lots of cyclists too. As they were going up they didn't look too happy. Hope they made it to the top!
Hey!! Happy birthday, my bacon butty blogging friend. Have a great time! Biking around the Ventoux - the grown-up French equivalent of being given the bumps in the school playground :-)
Thanks MM, it was certainly a treat. I was dying for a bacon butty when I got home but there was no bread. :( I consoled myself with mixed nuts and a Campari cocktail. :)
Happy Birthday to you too! Mine wasn't a big one, but it was nice. Yours sounds great, hope you have a wonderful time! WM x
I'm glad you enjoyed yours WM. I managed to string mine out quite successfully and so had an even better time. :)
Happy birthday...and you can send the leftover Campari this way.I am decidedly fond of a glass of gin and Campari. So 60s!
Thanks Fly but there won't be any leftovers! I've rediscovered how much I like it. :)
Happy (late) Birthday! Have a great time. And you know what? age is just a number...
Thanks MuMu. I agree, age is just a number, and I basically don't give a shit. :) There's nothing I can do about it anyway. :)
Very happy (belated) birthday wishes to you Sarah! x
I'm late as usual - so belated happy birthday!!
O God, I'm a bit late here too. Happy Birthday! And may you have many, many more to come.
No probs, DD. Many thanks. :)
Doing a big catch up of blog reading this morning so apologies for missing this. Hope you had a fabulous time. Looking forward to a detailed post of your 60s party so I can get tips for my big 'un next year!
We had a very jolly time, not particularly 60s except for the food though. I had enough to do preparing that without transforming my friends' house into a 60s boudoir at vast expense... :)
Yes you ! Happy Birthday - 40 years old? Need to see piccies of the partay!
LOL not quite Jody. It was a 60s party not 70s... :) I'll get round to a post soon I hope. Been very distracted recently.
Happy b'day! Turning 35 again (just like me?)?
Thanks, but maybe not 35 (let's not be that optimistic!!). :)
