A GREAT WEEK

We have just returned from a great week in Le Grand-Pressigny.

In fact, thanks to the extra bank holiday given to us all by Prince William for his wedding, and because Easter was late and close to May Day we had a 10-day holiday for just three days off work. 

We made the most of it.
