No.11 on the 4th July

And a very Happy 4th July to you all out there from here at No.11.  And for those of you who have ever tried to find me 'eh viola', here is a picture of how I look.  The reason for me showing you my front door is because for some reason which is completely unfathomable to a mere mortal like me No.11 has no number.  Imagine that ! the only house on the street without a number which is slightly inconvenient to say the least when people are trying to find you, just ever ever so slightly........ I daresay those of you with an inkling of how French bureaucracy works get my drift.

Anyway there you go it does not seem to have hindered my success to run a bed and breakfast.  I use the word 'success' with caution and modesty but there's a time to blow your own trumpet and a time to keep quiet and its a trumpet blowing day today.  In my third year of being open I am now placed No 7 on Trip Advisor out of 55 Bed and Breakfasts in Carcassonne with an Award for Excellence so I must be doing something right ! I did reach the dizzying heights of No 4 but a couple of b&b's sneaked in from outside Carcassonne itself so I slid down the ladder.

And I just love doing what I do but I rather miss one small thing, after three years of being in the heart of the Bastide of Carcassonne I have a yearning for a little patch of outside space so I'm moving on to pastures new even though it only just seems like I have arrived here.

So if anyone fancies stepping in my shoes, so to speak, you now know where to find me !

Sally, so nice to see that you are doing well. We are now back in England, otherwise we'd be coming down to Carcassonne, I think!
