Week 47 2015


Do you know that book ‘Where’s Wally?’ It’s where you have to look at the illustrations packed with all sorts of things and find certain items. I love that book and that’s one of the reasons I love a rummage in a brocante. The display cases are like my very own version of  Where’s Wally?

Can you find … a black cheroot holder… 12 swans… sugar nips… a blue car… 2 pairs of spectacles… a yellow light bulb… a cigar cutter… a collapsible ruler… a red rose… 4 watches…an aeroplane… a pair of compasses…blue and yellow flippers… a whiskey pourer…5 folding pen-knives and a thing for getting bits out of the horses hooves.

Whatever you are doing (or looking for) this week, have a  great time in the Gironde and Dordogne regions.

Best wishes,

And finally…

If you are looking for a way to send Christmas things over to the UK or farther afield this Christmas, you may want to take a look at Sendmybag A quick look at the quote for France to England looks quite ‘interesting’.  Recommended by a friend (thank you CT) it looks like it might be a good solution to the ever increasing French postal costs, not to mention luggage allowance restrictions.
