    Each day a new day

    April 6, 2015 in France ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Nannie is very sick in hospital in Nimes; she is in intensive care after hitting her head and has been asleep for more than 2 days. We are very worried about her but the doctors say she will get better and they will try to wake her up tomorrow. I will be able to visit her in a few days.

    We are trying to keep doing things like she would with us. We make a wish and toss a coin in the fountain every day. We had crêpes for lunch today- it's great that you can get nearly everything with Nutella in France!

    The dogs here are so good, they wait nicely even at food shops! Ruby says they are all "Tres Mignon".

    Uzes at night

    April 8, 2015 in France ⋅ 🌙 6 °C

    Tonight mum has taken over the blog entry.

    Ann/Nannie is awake!! She still has the ventilation tube in for a couple more days. But she can understand what we say to her, yes in English and French. We are all breathing a little easier now and things are very hopeful that she will be herself again in weeks to come.

    Meanwhile we were very lucky to have support of our amazing family team here and accept the chance to go out for dinner and explore Uzes after dark for the first time. The stone and architecture and laneways and random cats and general oozing mediaeval charm is fantastique!

    French movie cinema!

    April 8, 2015 in France ⋅ 🌙 9 °C

    First to say Nannie is even better mum says and might get her breathing tube out tomorrow. We will wait for what is best for Nannie but I miss her.

    Today we went to see Shaun le Mouton (Shaun the sheep) at the cinema. It was so funny. We also made our own popcorn in a machine when we put the euro coins in. It was a lot of fun for all of us & we were the only people in the cinema so we could talk and laugh loudly.Read more

    Dress ups

    April 10, 2015 in France ⋅ 🌙 2 °C

    Nannie is better again today but her throat is too swollen to get the tube out yet. It may be a couple of days yet. I can't wait to see her again.
    Today all the school kids in Uzes dressed up in costumes and marched right past our house. It was very noisy and fun.

  • Day25

    Musee du Bonbon

    April 12, 2015 in France ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    We went to a lolly factory!!! Gramps came too. There was a cool museum and huge shop at the Haribo Factory near where we are staying in Uzes. It's where they make gummy bears! We got to make our own lollies in a machine and we got to keep them. Mum let us buy something from the shop, we chose gummy crocodiles and a little gummy bear teddy.Read more

    Back in Uzes, and favourite TV show

    April 18, 2015 in France ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    We all loved coming back to Uzes, we know it well now, and it's like coming home. We also were all sooo excited to visit Nannie in hospital. She looks great, in a normal ward, and very keen to get out of hospital. She doesn't need oxygen at all now and is getting her strength back.

    I've discovered a fantastic TV show called Les Lapins Cretins (Crazy Rabbits), it's about alien rabbits exploring earth and getting into trouble especially at the shops. Its sooooooo funny, we all laugh heaps when it's on.Read more

    27 Rue Xavier Sigalon, Uzes

    March 27, 2015 in France ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    Uzes is very old and very nice! We are living on a pretty lane, our door is the first on the right in the first picture. There is no doorstep! You have to be careful not to bop people walking by with the front door, or cars. There is a fun cellar underneath and our bedroom is on the 3rd floor. All these pictures are of the house. We explored lots of laneways today and will go to the markets tomorrow! Look out for lots of my pictures!Read more

    Medieval garden and Tower of the King

    April 1, 2015 in France ⋅ 🌙 9 °C

    The garden wasn't exciting for me but I liked climbing the tower. It was a prison tower with very very thick walks. There was graffiti from mediaeval times! Amazing... Mostly religious graffiti. Hope you can see it in the pictures.

  • Day13

    Le Duchy d'Uzes

    March 31, 2015 in France ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    We visited a very old place where dukes of Uzes have been for hundreds of years. The building started about 900 years ago, that's old!! There is still a duke but he's a real estate agent living in paris these days. We climbed up a tower which had 135 steps and it was very high. I saw windows that were triangular so that bad guys couldnt shoot arrows through the little openings. Mum & dad liked the broken tower especially. The duchy rooms are beautiful and the wine cellar humongous. There are too many photos to choose from... I will try.Read more

  • Day11

    Living in Uzes

    March 29, 2015 in France ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    I am settling into French life. We had lunch outside and then coffee in the square. I took lots of photos around town, it's hard to choose only 3 for the blog! The duchy is like an old castle with beautiful towers and a bell that rings to tell the time.
