Week 12 2019


It's the first day of spring! I love looking into the heart of a tulip.

Thank you to #mattinwoodmasterclass at Chateau Rigaud for inspiring and enlightening a group of (occasionally) quite confused aspiring social media stars.

Whatever you do in the Gironde and Dordogne regions, enjoy the spring weather and have a great week.

Best wishes,

MADS Spring Production 2019 Press Release.

Three Jewish widows, long-time friends, meet once a month for tea, then visit their husbands' graves. Enter Sam, the local butcher who captures the interest of the ladies and potentially souring the friendships of age.  Watch as all the resentments, jealousies and emotions come to the surface

Date: 5th and 6th April 2019
Venue: Salle François Mitterand, Villeréal
Curtain Up: 7.30pm
Tickets Cost: €10

week 11 2019


I'm back in the Gironde after a great week of training in Tuscany.  I've never been there before and it is so beautiful.  If we think we have some old buildings here, they are nothing compared to those I saw in San Gimignano and Siena

San Gimignano, Siena and the sunset from the villa - the skies of Tuscany!

If you're looking for a place to visit - it's worth a mini break... or longer!  Fly into Florence.

Whatever you do in the Gironde or Dordogne regions this week,  have a great time.

Best wishes,
