Week 47 2014

I wonder if the rain will ever stop… So, what better way to spend Sunday than in Jo McKinnon’s pottery workshop at her Christmas Portes Ouvertes.  Beautiful ceramic items to choose from with something to suit all tastes and budgets. Don’t worry if you missed her there, she’ll be in Monteton on Sunday.

I’ve just put together a page with a listing of all the Christmas Markets I can find. You can find the link on the the right side of the blog under Pages or click http://notjustfortheholidays.blogspot.fr/p/christmas-markets-2014.html   If you know of any other markets then please let me know and I’ll add it in.  Also, if you hear of any carol concerts and Christmas music events please can you send me the details.

Have a great week in the Gironde and Dordogne regions – and who knows… the rain may stop soon.

Best wishes,

  1. Helen,
    The date for the Dordogne Ladies Club International, Christmas Fair is incorrect on your page. It WAS held on Saturday 22nd November and is not on today (Sunday) - I hope not too many people have a wasted journey......

    1. Hello Adrian,
      Thank you so much. I got that completely wrong! The date wasn't on the accompanying text, and I didn't study the poster closely enough. Hopefully no-one else made the same gaff as me!
      I hope that the event on Saturday was a great success.
      Best wishes,
