Week 35 2020


I've been invited to take part in an Exhibition and Sale of works of art in Castillon this week.  This 2 day event will be held at the upholstery shop in rue Victor Hugo. (the old CastiPrix)

The Exhibition is open from Friday morning and runs until Saturday afternoon.  I will certainly be there on Saturday afternoon, so please pop in and say 'Hello!' if you're in the neigbourhood. It will be lovely to see you!

Whatever you do this week in the Gironde and Dordogne regions, keep safe and well and have a good week.

Best wishes,

Week 33 2020


Duras wine fair was the place to be last Sunday.  We were there in the morning before the day got too hot. There was a one way system and hand sanitizer.  Mask were recommended, but that gets a little tricky when you're tasting.


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

Please excuse the formatting of this week's Newsletter.  Blogger, the platform I use for this Newsletter, have updated their system and I'm not getting to grips with it very quickly.  The most frustrating thing is not being able to consistently put the images next to each other.  Also, the background image, which I like to update weekly to show the changing year is coming out the size of a postage stamp! So, please bear with me as I wrestle the formatting into submission... 🤞

Best wishes,

I love how the noughts and crosses games came out for the August pottery workshop in Sauveterre.  I think they would make a great gift too.
