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

Superb Job

An amazing result, due to Mikaela and Keegan's hard work.

 A bench here wouldn't go amiss.

A well earned ice cream after dinner. Can you guess what they are doing in the photo on the right ?

  1. They've done a fantastic job! Definitely deserving of the ice cream. Oh no, they're not removing splinters/ prickles are they? X

  2. What a difference, that is a perfect spot for a bench x

  3. I think that they are unwrapping tooth picks because the ice cream was so very lumpy :) ?
