We were up at 5am this morning and by half past on the toad a nice clear run down the m6 m42 m40 m25 etc although just as we neared the Chanel tunnel there was a trailer turner over looked like it had stock on board but thankfully for us in the north bound carriageway. They had closed the motorway near the tunnel going south. We checked in and got an earlier crossing really no delays at all and we were soon passing under the channel and popped up to find the weather in France was as bad as it had been in Kent and it just got worse but we had decided to make our way across country towards corbie and then cut down to Amiens where I could go to the wine shop and stock up on my pastis . Thus accomplished we cruised back up to corbie and found a house full of guests and Ian and Miguel were in the midst of entertaining, we had dumped the cards in he hallway and about 7.30pm we thought we should head up to our room to settle in before dinner. The usual restaurant at Bonney village was shut for the holidays so we'd been booked in at the new restaurant in corbie near the church it was still damp and occasional rain although not at all cold. Typically France there was scarcely a person seen as we cut across country this afternoon. The meal was so do a warm plate on mains would have helped, I can't see it replacing Bonnay but very clean and friendly and spike better English but then that also takes away a little of the fun. We are having an early night here in the heart of Picardy, a mixed crowns of Australians and Brits plus a couple of very pleasant Germans everyone seemed to get on very well. Nothing much on the net tonight other than from my cousin in Australia . Hope all is well with our readers world wide this evening, you could hear a pin drop in the centres of corbie at 20pm and its only 9.39 English time. Still can't complain the peace and quiet is very welcome but a little sunshine Tomorow will be very welcome .
