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

The Children from Salt Creek.

That is what this photo (taken by my sister-IL, Joelle) reminds me of.
It makes me all sentimental and nostalgic.
A beautiful photo of a moment in time. They were watching the antics of a kingfisher, or so I've heard.

It did bring back memories of a Swedish TV series that I watched as a child. The Children from Salt Creek, which was written by Astrid Lindgren (Pippi Longstocking) especially for the Swedish TV.
Vi p°a Saltkr°akan . It was shown on the Flemish TV channel from 1964 and repeats for many years after. 
Talk about feelgood TV. This was it. And I recognised it even as a young child.

The dog's name was Boatsman.
