just arrived in France as have wedding here in a chateau on Wednesday

Chez Christine et PierreFirst impressions count and my first French encounters have all been delightful. The helpful lady where I picked up the hire car at Charles De Gaulle Airport, the chirpy young man in the service station where I ate a large plate of Ratatouille, creamed spinach and cauliflower for the price of a small one – and the lovely couple who invited me in to stay at their place when I stopped to ask for info on nearby chambres d’hotes, all made my arrival in France very special.

The whole event is very special as the bride-to-be-tomorrow found me on the Internet, while I was in Australia doing a wedding there, and she herself happens to be an Australian getting married in France to a Scottish husband, so I have travelled from Yorkshire to share their day at this Chateau.
