Have you ever visited a museum that completely took you by surprise and exceeded all expectations? Well the Mougins Museum of Classical Art is one place that did that for me. This surprising little museum is home to an amazingly eclectic collection of art ranging from antiquity (Roman, Greek and Egyptian artefacts) to contemporary artists such as Damien Hirst and Antony Gormley....via Picasso, Degas, Rubens, Cézanne and many more big names. It's a must-visit kind of place when on the Côte d'Azur.I've written about it on the blog out now (link in bio). #MACM#mougins
This street sign was recently added to the beach in front of Serendipity. It's a great marker for long walks on the beach where you lose track of where you are, or what beach access to use. Once you go across the dune walkway, Serendipity is just a few houses down!

Pisa, Piazza dei Miracoli: the Pisa Cathedral and the famous leaning tower of Pisa.
Piazza dei Miracoli was named by the Italian writer and poet Gabriele d'Annunzio who, in his novel Forse che sì forse che no (1910), described the square as the "prato dei Miracoli," or "meadow of miracles". The square is sometimes called the Campo dei Miracoli (Field of Miracles). In 1987, the whole square was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Hostas are one of my favourite plants. I’m growing a few varieties in my shade garden and so far, they’ve not been munched by slugs 🤞🏻.

My daughter and I stopped into @littlemayespresso earlier this week for lunch. Avoiding dairy and gluten I opted for the vegan breakfast burger. All I can say is YUM 😋. Faye thoroughly enjoyed the regular breakfast burger.⠀
As well as friendly service, Little May Espresso has some great gluten free and vegan options to choose from.⠀

"I am sort of a tea addict. I structure my day by cups of tea." ~ S.T. Joshi
This quote is so foreign to me because just assumed everyone did this?
First thing I do when I wake up is pad to the kitchen and put the kettle on. Actually if there was no tea I doubt I would every get out of bed.
As soon as I get to work, I make a cuppa.
Then, between my morning cuppa an lunch I have a, erm, coffee .... (sorry tea, you are my fav)
A cuppa after lunch.
Arvo tea, I mean, of course.
One for the road for my commute home.
One as I cook dinner.
One when I do a little writing or reading at night.
I always take a thermos of tea to the footy.
I don't think I have a problem, do you?
We have 6 sorts of tea available in our AirBnB pantry, a range of tea bags and leaf tea (green, peppermint, black, fruit) several tea pots and a whole lot of love for the ceremony of sitting down and having a cuppa and a chat.
My love of tea comes from both my grandmothers who like their tea strong and sweet and with a biscuit or a slice or a piece of cake. That they had made themselves. If tea couldn't fix a problem then it really wasn't a problem!
Do you like leaf tea or bags. Can you remember the best cup of tea you ever had? Do you add anything to your tea? I have been known to add a dram of whiskey to my tea in the afternoon. Late in the afternoon ... Does anyone know how the Queen (of England or your local Bingo, take your pick) takes her tea?
On the breakfast table this morning we have cranberry and apricot cinnamon swirl buns, topped with a lush lemon glacé icing.
It's Saturday! Everyone deserves a bit of weekend pampering What is your favourite breakfast treat?
I have the absolute best guests! 😍
What a thoughtful surprise to come home to after the lovely @teacherstakeayear left!
It's always a pleasure to host repeat guests, I love hearing about the adventures they have had since the last visit!
