The last two months in a nutshell -
The end of 2012 disappeared in a blur.

|Roger and Culli wood turning|
Lots of plans for painting and wood-turning courses are being hatched.
A very sad end to the year, we lost our dear friend and neighbour Mervyn to cancer and Bix our big gentle giant Golden Retriever, life in La Verderie will be very quiet without them.

2013 has started well, I am on a decorating spree, the bookshelves in the dining room have gone, the staircase has been painted, new knitted cushions and throws are wip and furniture is being transformed.
Five of the workshops and retreats for this year are already fully booked, there are still a few spaces left for the retreats in April, May and October - see here
My old college mate Kim was here for a few days over New Year with her new man, we had a very relaxed week eating and drinking far too much, then on the last day a trip to Bordeaux. It is such a beautiful city with so much to see, beautiful wide streets, designer shops, gorgeous cakes and chocolates..............
