Week 49 2015


We took off to Bordeaux to the Antiques market in Quinconces this weekend.  We used the Park and Ride - beware the new system means you buy your ticket from the machines, not at the carpark entrance, and only get one ticket per car.

The market didn’t disappoint, we all came away with a little something, had a fabulous lunch of barbecued pork (with crackling) and there were plenty of animals on display too!

The Christmas lights are up and the Christmas market is open too.  More than enough to keep you occupied for a whole day… I could have stayed longer.

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

Best wishes,

And finally…

Some call it Stir-up-Sunday, but I like to call it Mix-up-Monday as that was the day I made our Christmas cake. Roughly following this recipe I used the fruits we had dried from the garden this summer and eggs from our hens.  A very locally sourced cake.  Of course the proof of the pudding is in the eating… all we have to do is wait!
