En Vacances


I just came to tell you that I'm going.

Despite le crunch du credit and that tax man shouting 'cos he wants his dough, lawdy we do need a holiday - even if it's for only a week in France from tomorrow via the dreaded Ryanair and it'll probably rain; but, you know, the cheese is nice there, the wine's cheaper too and we can look at lavendery fields for a bit. I think a person needs to look at lavendery fields for a bit, sometimes. French supermarkets are fun too. Hey, I know how to have a good time.

I will miss you.

In the manner of your Collins French-English, English-French dictionary...

Serge Gainsbourg - 'Je Suis Venu Te Dire Que Je M'En Vais' (1975)
Jarvis Cocker & Kid Loco- 'I Just Came To Tell You That I'm Going' (2006)

Back August 18th.

Allez, salut maintenant x

  1. Have a good one Davey, we almost popped off to France this year - love a splash of Serge. Don't overdo it on the frittes - and what are those Tabacs all about, just seem to be full of swarthy sippers.

  12. I remembered it as 'dans l'arbre' too, but he seems to have developed it over the years...

  13. like most postcards...I've arrived after the event.

    But you've left on a day when the UK is under a deluge of rain, so it looks like great timing on your part.

    Have a blast mon ami.
