La Chatte Gitane (or The Gypsy Cat) was the name we chose for our cottage in France at the time. We chose it while on the road, moving house the first time round, 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 we did and 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, after yet another stint in Ireland, we're back in France @ Le Mas d'Ayen

Look Who Has Arrived !

La Mamma Irma ! She arrived from Belgium on Wednesday afternoon and got stuck in straight away, tidying up the houseplants.

I've been absent from blogger world for a couple of weeks and for this I apologise. After the bedroom makeover I needed to recharge my batteries. Not to mention clearing and cleaning all the mess that gathered in the rest of the house.
The bedroom is a pleasure to go to at night and waking up feels just as good.
I hope you've all been well. Thank you for all the lovely comments in previous posts. Very much appreciated.

Till tomorrow.

  1. Nice to see you back, a recharge now & then does you good. xx

  2. I not surprised you needed a rest! Lovely to see you back.

    1. I'm an all or nothing kinda person, so I'm either industrious or very very lazy. :)
