Did you miss me? Thought not....

I wouldn't expect many people to have noticed, but I've been off on a few days holiday - the first real time off I've had since November (constant leafleting, Council work, and YSI and SNP engagements since then!). I've been in France, down near Carcassonne, which was nice but pretty windy due to the place I was staying apparently being in the course of the Mistral. It was unbelievably windy, except for the last few days when it turned eerily still.

I caught some sun, visited Toulouse, Carcassonne, Narbonne, Andorra, and a few wee villages besides. I did some wine tasting and ate lots of bread and cheese. I avoided the Cassoulet because I'm just not convinced it's going to be that tasty.

I saw some political posters (completely different from ours as you can see!), and some pro-Occitania graffiti and t-shirts.

I did take my Blackberry with me; I did emails from the side of the pool. I am either dedicated, or I am truly tragic. You can decide...

Of course we missed you Alison and the answer to your question is b) truly tragic! That is why I did not reply to your email - you're supposed to be taking a break!!

Rest assured, my Blackberry is getting left at home when I go on holiday next month.

I think I would get divorced otherwise!!!
