Son's birthday

Today is my son's 16th birthday. How he has grown. There was a time, not too long ago when I used to rest my chin on the top of his head - now he does it to me!!
He chose his menu for tonight - Chicken Kiev, pasta, haricot verts followed by clafoutis. Normally this is made with cherries but we prefer it with raspberries - frozen ones work really well. Recipe to follow if anyone is interested.
For his presents he had the usual clothes and a watch and a shaver. wow - this is my baby, now he is shaving.
Today he has been castrating the maize, all the kids round here do it, it allows the under 18s to earn some money during the summer holidays. it's hard work, especially when it's hot like today. he has come home today with bright red arms, neck and face despite putting sun cream on before he left home this afternoon.

Hi,

Welcome to blog land........I look forward to reading more about your life in France. We both love France and would like to have settled there, but try as we might it just did not happen. Unfortunately my husband has developed a problem which makes it difficult to travel far.

I am also on a frugal bent, I look forward to reading how you get on.
