Blogus interruptus

As the sun sinks slowly in the west, we find our heroine melting in a puddle of perspiration. Will she cool off with her paramour on a beach somewhere? Drown her sorrows in a bucket of champagne? Or disappear into a shady corner of the garden and hibernate until winter?

Stay tuned for further adventures of life in France when temperatures return to normal…

Bonnes vacances à tous!

    As I thought you really don’t look your alleged age … But your boy friend looks rather dumb

    • MELewis · July 6, 2017

      Lol! As my father once famously told my mother: “You look great from the back.”

  3. francetaste · July 6, 2017

    Love the photo!!!
    What did your mother reply to your father?

    • MELewis · July 6, 2017

      Thanks! If memory serves, she thought it was a good joke (but was probably ready to kill him!).

  4. M. L. Kappa · July 6, 2017

    Lose the boyfriend and put a bikini on! Happy hols! 🍾🍾🍾

    • MELewis · July 6, 2017

      Merci M’dame! (Think I’ll keep him though, after 30 years, as long as he keeps turning up…)

  5. Suzanne et Pierre · July 6, 2017

    Bonnes vacances! Enjoy the warm weather and the champagne! (Suzanne)

    • MELewis · July 6, 2017

    bonnes vacances, repose-toi et reviens-nous avec des super-posts, please!!! poutous & à+! ❤

    • MELewis · July 11, 2017

      Hmm, those Kens always seemed to be secretly swinging for the other team! 😀 Merci mille fois, Melanie, and same to you! xx

  8. Jeanne · July 6, 2017

    Hilarious! Stay cool. And note to Barbie…just remember, Ken is nothing more than an accessory…you are the star. 🙂

    • MELewis · July 11, 2017

      I’m with you! Merci and here’s to cooler temps!

  9. Lisa @ cheergerm · July 6, 2017

    Ha! Surely nude swimming will keep you cool? This cracked me up, Happy Holidays Mel! (Mum has been in Rome and now Poland and there is certainly some heat going on over in your part of the world!)

    • MELewis · July 11, 2017

      Wow, Mrs. Cheer, she’s one intrepid traveler your Mum! Yes, it’s been very hot around here although thankfully cooler this week. As for the skinny dipping, I’ll leave that to those with perfect plastic. 😉

  10. davidprosser · July 7, 2017

    Hmmm, I would have expected a little more propriety from you Mel, But…whatever floats your boat as they say.
    Have a wonderful Summer Holiday.

      Thanks, David! That’s the beauty of blogging, we can all live out our wildest fantasies from behind the keyboard. Hope the summer sun is warming you all in Wales! xo

  11. Redterrain · July 8, 2017

    I hope you found your way into the waters and drank some champagne too!

    • MELewis · July 11, 2017

      Cheers! The water is warm and we always find an excuse for bubbles around here. Hope you’re snuggling into winter in NZ!

  12. midihideaways · July 10, 2017

    Enjoy the break!!

    • MELewis · July 11, 2017

      Thanks, it will be welcome whether deserved or not. Happy summer!

      • midihideaways · July 11, 2017

        I’m sure it’s deserved, Mel!! Enjoy it!

  13. Osyth · July 10, 2017

    Fill the pool with champagne and jump in with paramour … just a thought 😉

    • MELewis · July 11, 2017

      What a way to go, eh, on a tide of champagne? With nothing but two large straws…very 007. Can’t wait to hear the suite of your adventures!
