Has it been two weeks? Journal update.

Monday the 18th was our film date afternoon at Josselin.

Then it was time to begin building that cupboard on the landing I've been wanting to do for such a long time. It's a messy job but Bev was eager to get it sorted. Then my sister, now living in Santa Monica, facetimed and we spoke for an hour about old-time memories of the Garths.

Tuesday was Archery in Josselin. Bev is getting very good at it (and very competitive).

Wednesday...Dave and Annies for a game of tens. I won! This was the evening that I came down with a severe cold.

Mickael Kevin Calves visited with news...sorry but we're sworn to secrecy.

I was ill Friday.

Saturday was our annual goals evening with the gang in the UK. Skype is a modern miracle.  Bev won the trophy for achieving her goals for 2015. Now we start all over with fresh goals for 2016.

Sunday was a busy as ever and then it was Monday again.

A helping hand to paint my panels ready for painting again next Monday.

Tuesday was moving those metal cabinets from the living room.. I also put the flooring in the bread-oven. 

Their new home in the overflow larder under the stairs.

On Tuesday evening we stayed in to watch Suffragette and decided at the last moment to go out to Archery as soon as it finished.  Got back very late. It's a good film.  On Monday we'll go to Josselin and watch it in French.

Wednesday was cards again and Annie won BOTH games.  We played two games because the weather was so bad. We worked on the landing when we got back while listening to music at full volume. So good! I've recovered from my cold.

Thursday was French at Marthe's in Cruguel. Flo (her beautiful white cat) has died. So sad!

Friday was an early start as my winter studio door was being fitted.

out with the old.

Stuck!! Sophie tried her 4x4 without success. Then it was her mini tractor.

Then the big tractor from our neighbour down the lane.

It was well entrenched!

Another area to fill and seed.

That's better! I'll be painting in there Monday or Tuesday.

Later it was our night out for a meal and live music at Le Vieux Pont in Le Bono.  It was fantastic!  Loved it!

Toilet promotional wall. Next week looks good!

This is Waraba Live featuring our friend Ludo on guitar. it's an Afro Funky Jazz group and they rocked!

There's something special about being surrounded with in your face live music. Forget stage settings! The bongo drums were brilliant as was the Theremine.

Yesterday we finished the landing as well as the ceiling where the wasps were. The cupboard is just what we wanted. Everthing is looking much better now.

It's as if it has always been there. Just need to hang the door and stain the woodwork. We've decided to carpet upstairs now to get away from the holiday home feeling.

Wasps a distant memory!  All nice  new and clean again!

Today we had Simon, Corinne, Benjamin and Odelia over for a meal.  We had a really lovely time. They're such a nice family. They helped us with French and we helped them with English.

Skyped family and ready to settle down for the evening.

Bev has just noticed that Terry Wogan has died. My word, the stars are falling like flies this year.
