Master Crêpe Maker

A special treat awaited customers to the 8 a Huit Supermarket in Daglan this morning. Showing her culinary skills was chef extraordinaire Virginie, her expertise in the art of crêpe making is excellent. With a flick of the wrist the crêpe was turned over, jam or Nutella spread in the centre, the crêpe was folded into a triangle and voilà, a delicacy ready to eat.


Here is my very yummy Nutella crêpe.

Très bon Virginie,un vrai régal, merci beaucoup.

Hurry… there may still be cake!

Today the 8 à Huit in Daglan have cakes made by our very own “Wonder Woman” (real name Virginie). If I say that they are so delicious that they make your mouth water with delight, you will conjuror up an images of the perfect French cakes.

Here they are on the table in front of Chris, chocolate cake, apple cake or pear cake free to everyone, and you could also have free juice or water if you so wish.

Another very happy customer with Virginie.

Also today a fire breathing dragon appeared in the village..

To be found on the right of the Place de la Liberté.

Happy Birthday Bambino

Cleo was one year old a couple of weeks ago. She is so gorgeous and always up to mischief. Her favourite game is peek a boo which she plays at every opportunity, behind a bush, a duvet, a chair or a paper bag. Those keen eyes miss nothing, especially when Paul is eating charcuterie.

Our little nougat coloured kitten.

I could not miss out our gorgeous Angel, who is five this year.
She loves attention especially from Chris and Virginie from the 8 á Huit Supermarket next to our home. Such a diva, quite a few of the tourists visiting Daglan will stop to take her photograph, she will sit and pose for them and lap up the praise they give her.

This bag is so mine.

How cute is this? The look that could melt hearts will always gets my attention, “treat time Cleo”.
