Back in the green but only marginally cooler Cantal. We have found the current heatwave tiring, so tended to have sat around reading, although we have managed a few swims at the local Centre Aquatique in Mauriac.

I haven't yet read Angela Huth's novel Landgirls, but have just finished reading the sequel, Once a Landgirl, which was an enjoyable read, not too demanding, but engaging, so a good holiday read. The story of Prue, a landgirl on a Dorset farm during World War 2, this sequel continues Prue's search for meaning and contentment in post war England. The atmosphere of the period is subtly presented, along with the emotional dilemmas of those settling back into ordinary life.
