Now coming to you ‘live’ from the south of France where we’ve rented a town house squeezed into the old quarter of Pezenas near Beziers. The British climate finally broke us, so we rented our flat out and headed for the sun…Plan is to buy a place in the New Year – all being well.

Back in the UK for the NEC Bikeshow though and will be signing books and telling stories on the Traveldriplus stand (no.B030- hall 2) on Saturday 27th, Monday29th(a.m), Tuesday 30th(p.m.), Wednesday1st, Thursday 2nd(a.m.) and Saturday 4th Dec. If you’re there, come and say hello!

There is a woman in this photo – can you see her?
