I think there is a fairly big town nearby which should have some shops...can't quite remember the name of it but seem to remember it begins with a P :wink:
There might be somewhere nice in Aulnay itself... or maybe not...

I'd be happy just grabbing a cheese fougasse from a boulangerie somewhere...but I'd prefer to find somewhere more scenic to sit and eat it!

I think we should put Mr Smith incharge of that one, should be a doddle!

You'd have some tough competition Mark.

Mike S is taking his Mark 1.
I managed to tell the UBXM crew on their forum that I'm a prostitute (I hate foreign idioms).
At the last count, I believe that there were 90 people going in total (for both tours). I've seen posts on UBXM asking for 10, 20 stickers. Il n'y aura pas suffisant autocollants ... c'est la guerre!

If we get away with all that without a diplomatic incident, I suspect that your accent exécrable won't make too much difference ;P

Also we might just have to find a Camembert with a diameter greater than a Speedline's to satisfy Mark's craving lol. Mind you I like cheese too Gromit....

Great, so I have to be a passenger in a 16v with leather on a hot day, and no AC... :wink:

I'll be bringing a CB; if anyone else has one it would be good to bring it. Otherwise I'll have to content myself with listening in to foreign truckers!

I've now ticked EVERYTHING on my 'stuff you need to sort out if you're going to France on Friday' list. Here's my Hurricane (newly valetted) parked next to a rather nice Veedub as I did a last dash round Morrisons. I promised Chris a box of decent tea bags - it's a little known fact that whatever else France and the French have to recommend them, they live their entire lives without decent teabags!! :shock:
