This is a picture of me being sunburned and pointing at a church for no good reason – which is what I like to do on a holiday …
We were based near the middle of nowhere, so there was plenty of opportunity to write. I started the Birmingham play again from the beginning – it’s surprisingly different – much lighter in tone. I must go on holiday more often.
We also went to Mont St. Michel to look at the alligators. This global warming’s a caution, isn’t it.
We wasted a lot of time scouring restaurant menus for vegetarian options. How the French laughed. I once ordered a ‘vegetarian special’ pizza which, it turns out, means a ham pizza with slightly less ham than normal on it.
The next six or seven months look hectic. I’m glad we managed to get away when we did.
