Nice Boys etc.

On Tuesday (Mardi) we went to France (Perpignan) for lunch.

We met some old boys...

And some lovely new ones.

I got my birthday present (only 1 month late). A pair of shiny black boots (more Sven than Nancy) that should see me through the party season i.e. a pub lunch in Tameside with Barbara and her sister.

Then back to Spain for tea....

........ and Barcelona v Glasgow Rangers on telly.

What a multicultural day!

We'll be out and about a bit for the next few days - so I'll be in touch next Wednesday (Mercredi) when I get home.

Hasta luego!

What a cosmopolitan life you allow us all to live, vicariously.

Oh God, I've only just figured out that this is a Stalking Thierry holiday. I'm really slow on the uptake, aren't I?

When I see the word vicariously - I alwaysthink of MrScurra.
Perhaps I should get out more and blog less.

Well we saw Barcelona v Villa Real on Sat night as well - bit better than all those hefty rugger types.
No sightings in the 'flesh' as yet - but we're in Barcelona on Tuesday.

Breakfast in Wigan, lunch in Wolverhampton, dinner in Basingstoke, and cocktails in Bognor.

Who needs to bother with abroad?

Waste of money. And it smells.

Tres bonne picture of your visage in the reflection du magasin window, Kaz! The shoulder bag was a mistake with that top, though.

If Deep Purple got the ferry to Spain I hope they didn't think of taking their cigarettes.

You know you can't smoke on the water any more.

Blogger I, like the view said...

thought you were going pastel lilac these days, not deep purple?

whatever you wear it'll be fab with your new boots!

have fun - am greatly enjoying the vicarious living in the meantime, thanking you

Travelling from Manchester to Liverpool is really 'going abroad'.
No chance of understanding the language and their idea of 'cocktails' is half of mild with a pickled onion on a stick.

You've caught me out with that one before.
That bent elbow isn't mine - it belongs to a very nice young man who was suggesting (in the best possible taste) that I was a bit strange for photographing 'les mannequins'

Did Betty buy you the 'Bumper Book of Heavy Metal jokes' for your birthday?

Geoff is great - but I wonder why he didn't send you a baby pic.

I'm in a denial state of taupe at present.

LOL Pub lunch in Tameside...
Tripe and chips in the 'Tap Room'.
or Elder and French Fries in 'The Snug'

Is that mannequin decades old, or has that sort of hairdo come back into fashion?

9:36 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

Tripe and Elder. My grandma loved it - but I couldn't bear to look.
I'm told it's a delicacy in France.

I think the answer to both questions is YES.
They have put an old mannequin in the window to introduce an element of retro chic. The cracks on his face looked genuine.

Tripe... I agree, it turns my stomach ;-)

Thanks Tony:
Could you water my plant while you're there......please.

There used to be a shop in Blackburn that sold nothing else. I'd always wait outside.

It's wednesday - are you home safe and sound (ish)?

9:14 pm  
Blogger I, like the view said...



get down to Primark - or Topshop - and re-invent yourself (unless the taupe is showing off a wonderful tan, in which case blue works better anyhow)

hope you arrived home safely

Probably - I blame the vino!
Yes I'm home and getting back into blogging mode.

Yeah - they're as Green as Dave Cameron.


I won't need telling twice. The Catalans are all getting out their duvet jackets for without exception.

My oldest brother kept sliding off to Perpignon, my mother was convinced he "had some bird over there" [he's 55, so what if he had / has] it's not you is it?????

My lips are sealed.
55 is a good age for a man.
