Last Thursday was also a holiday, called "Ascension", which commemorates when Jesus ascended to heaven after his resurrection. You can see it happening in the tapestry above, which looks great for something knitted in the 6th century. Based on our experience last Thursday, everyone near Mougins spends Ascension at the beach.
Yesterday was Pentecost and now I think the holidays are over. The kids are back at school, we got the mail, the garbage has been taken away and the house is quiet again. I'm happy for that too.
