La Chatte Gitane (or The Gypsy Cat) was the name we chose for our cottage in France. We chose it while on the road, moving home, from Ireland to France with 2 dogs and 7 cats in the car.
This blog began its insignificant life as a recipe book for friends and family who would ask me repeatedly for a recipe of this, that and the other.
Since then it has taken many different directions, like gypsies tend to do. Sometimes making a U-turn and revisiting familiar roads and taking a break when necessary.
You'll find recipes here, but also musings about the places we've called home, the gardens that we've established, not always successfully, the homes we've improved and the environments we've lived in. Currently, that is back in Ireland.

Wrapped !

Presents wrapped.  Tick.

For niece Sarah (4) and nephew Mathias (8)


For the adults, mum Irma, brother Rijkaard (or Richard in English) and sis-in-law Joelle.


Popped into a suitcase and on their merry way to Belgium. Tick.

    1. I had to do it now because of a deadline. Instead of the presents being under our Christmas tree they are now in Belgium under my mother's tree. Bert, my husband took them in his suitcase.

    1. Thanks Sadie. Would you know, I was pretty bored myself and it took me forever to get on with it.
