Week 36 2015


It’s back to school this week and it’s stationery heaven in the supermarkets!  As a girl on holiday in France one of my strongest memories is wandering through the aisles in a state of wonder, marvelling at the selections of pens, the choices of colours and the ranges of notebooks!  Now I know, as I watch the children and parents working their way down the long list of items given out by the schools. These are the things necessary for la rentrée!

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

Best wishes,

Ps – Please excuse the delay in posting… massive computer (and Helen) meltdown :-(
