Yesterday we went along to Le Chat Noir in Roujan to listen to our friends and neighbours, Julie and Olivier (plus Stéphane) in concert with the Jersey Julie Band. We last saw them play in the summer, when Uncle Ben very kindly bought us their CD. Since then it has become a firm favourite with the minibeasts so it was a real buzz for them to hear the music they know so well live. They had a whale of a time jumping about in front of the stage and Owen made sheep's eyes at Julie. Recent visitors, Katie and Nao, can vouch for the fact that O is a bit of a ladies' man.
We considered inviting some friends along to join us but decided not to in the end and I'm so glad we didn't. Obviosusly I love getting out and about with other people, and the minibeasts enjoy it when there are other minibeasts in tow. But we don't make the most of each other as a family in the same way. I felt like we were really together today.
Nonetheless, when we skyped Uncle Ben tonight and he asked Owen what he'd done today, the detail he chose to relate, the highpoint of his day, his fondest memory, was that he had chips.

And here they are hoofing it up to the infectious rhythms of the Jersey Julie Band:
