Oooopps, little late in for work this morning..... How can I help that when the gorgeous smells from the market hit me as soon as I open my front door (I live in town), I just had to do a 'tour'!
What a commune it is! Everyone knows everyone, which is quite incredible as this is a reasonable size market. You can be sure you will bump into several people you know. I caught up with a couple who I had sold a property to about four years ago. Retired couple who moved here with daughter and grandson. The daughter is now getting married to a local French guy. Happy stories - sets you up in a good mood for the day!
My flower guy was a charming as ever.... Every week I buy my flowers from him which, price and quality wise, top the bigger shops. I like to support the local guys to. Mr flower man asked me if I was Dutch or American this morning. I can't ever lose my accent no matter how much I try to roll those 'r's !! He even gave me a free plant - I like Mr flower man!
I bought some of my favourite 'saucisson' too. Duck with walnuts in. Ummm, yummy, yummy.
Mr cheese man tried his hardest to get me to try some of his home-made sheep cheese, however, I didn't fancy it this morning, too early. Although normally delicious, some of it can be very strong and the taste lingers for hours. I knew I had a client coming in too so didn't want to breathe cheese breath all over them!
