To Le Saint Martin, a bar in the little village of Brux last night, the chosen location for this month's 'girls night out.'
Last night there were over twenty of us in total, French, English and German (aka 'The French Connection' on Facebook.) It was an excellent evening, fuelled only by tonic water, in my case, as I was driving. Those lucky enough to have husbands/boyfriends willing to pick them up were having an even better time.
My friend Anita who I picked up en route was remarkably sanguine about the fact that the oil warning alarm bipped like an alarm clock all the way to Brux. Then back to her hamlet where her husband made us midnight cheese on toast and suggested it might be time to retire my trusty old Golf.
Tomorrow it is the Mad Hatter's Kitchen near Chaunay for lunch, which reminds me that I promised to post forthcoming events:
Friday March 25th
Music And Bistro Night: €18
Sunday April 3
A special Sunday lunch for Mother's Day €18
Saturday April 16
Traditional steak night - 3 courses with wine, €22
Saturday April 30th
Music and Bistro NIght, €18
With country and rock musician Steve Somers. (I can highly recommend this; the last one was excellent.).
