A hint at what coming weeks hold …

1. A hot water bottle for keeping warm late at night in front of the television.

2. Strong coffee to help me stay awake into the wee small hours.

3. Bicycle riding gentlemen in tight fitting clothing.

Why it’s time for ‘Le Tour de France’ of course!

      Hi Maxine – It was lovely indeed to watch the Tour de France, and of course see all that delicious scenery. In fact I enjoyed the Tour so much that I’m w-a-y behind in catching up on my blog … shame on me. I trust you’ve been keeping yourself well …

    I look forward to this every year, but my cable service is just not cooperating this time around. I lost coverage right before the cobbles of Stage 3, and now I have to read about each leg. Just not the same. πŸ™

      Hi Ms. Smartypants – Oh that’s such a disappointment that you couldn’t watch much of ‘Le Tour’ this year. I hope your cable service is working properly now? I suppose the only saving grace about missing the Tour this year is that you know there will always be another next year! πŸ™‚

    See, I just can’t watch cycling! I really just.. glaze over. I appreciate the scenery and whatnot, but this is not something I’d stay up late for! But how cute is that hot water bottle?! πŸ™‚

      Hi Kimberley – Oh I adore ‘Le Tour’ time of year, but I know a lot of people are the same as you and take no enjoyment from watching it at all. I’ve only started watching in the last couple of years, so I’m a recent convert. The only trouble is that it makes me want to move to France more and more each year! πŸ˜‰

      Hi Gabrielle – The lack of sleep during ‘Le Tour’ has seen me only start catching up on comments (and everything else) this weekend … be well my friend, and thank you for your loyal visits here, they are very much appreciated.
