Frogs in the Bush

Sis in Law and her beau have a bakery in a country town. As well as there being accommodation within the main building, there is also a simple newish four bedroom house attached. It used to house women on some sort of gaol release programme to ease them back into the community. We were going to take R's sister and brother in law for a visit and stay a couple of nights when they are here in a couple of weeks. Instead Sis in Law has found us accommodation in a B & (do you see amp after the &?) B in a nearby town.

We can't stay at Sis in Law's as four young Frenchman have rented the house for two months while they 'learn English' and do seasonal work. Do I have your attention Grace? Two of them are expert pastry cooks and have been rather useful in the bakery. The locals,  Farmer Brown and Tree Logger Trev have become rather fond of fine éclairs.

A couple of weekends ago Oldest Niece and Chainsaw Niece took the lads out for a night on the local regional town. Well, the nieces did not really know the local town, but they seemed to find  their way around well enough and did not arrive back at Sis in Law's until daylight, still with the Frenchies who did not pick up, if that is what they were hoping.

Of course we will be forced to meet the Frenchies when we visit. I did perhaps mention that they were young, but they are also into body building and are drop dead gorgeous and feature prominently in the nieces' Face Book photos. Nay, I will go further. Two of them are male model material. Sis in Law managed to spank two of them on the bum with her wooden spoon (settle Andrew) when they disappeared for a day and did not tell her where they were going. Bush fires were not so far away.

Unfortunately their English is not great and is not improving.

Anyways, excusez-moi. Je dois faire mes leçons de français.

  4. I couldn't read much after "bakery". I kept seeing images of vanilla slices, cinnamon swirls and other deliciousness as they floated through my mind.

    1. River, very much that sort of bakery. The pies are sent up to 50 kilometres away.

  7. Maybe you could pretend to be a male model talent scout & get them to strut their stuff? Or perhaps you already ARE a male model talent scout ...
