Hannah settles down in the sunshine for the afternoon and I get some cooking done and take BeBop out for a quick walk before the others get here.

After supper of roast pork with roasted vegetables and chocolate torte we catch up with each others news and talk about what we are going to do for the week.
Monday is grey, but warm. Sue and I take BeBop for a walk around the lanes before breakfast then
The sun comes out in time for an early evening walk through the woods, followed by a glass of GandT or chilled white wine in the courtyard and supper of roasted red peppers, chicken and fennel cassoulet and lemon cheesecake.
Today Sue and I had another brisk and slightly damp walk around the block, after breakfast we went off to Saintes. First stop was Tissus Bonnet the fabric and yarn shop in rue Gambetta, this huge shop has some good deals on remnants, great books and lovely trimmings, then on for the inevitable stop at Maisons du Monde and the yarn shop. The sun made a brief appearance so we drove up to the amphitheatre and sat on the terrace overlooking it drinking coffee.

Sue took BeBop for his afternoon walk, then the four of them, in true British style, sat outside with their drinks willing the sun to appear until supper was ready.
