TWELVE MONTHS IN TWELVE DAYS

ON THE TENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS – THE MONTH OF OCTOBER.

October can be a nice month, with the trees still in leaf and just a hint of autumn colours creeping in.

We had our last holiday for the year in Le Grand-Pressigny and crammed an awful lot of fun into two weeks.

We had lunch out several times, visited some popular tourist places such as Villandry.  I had a baking session with my little friends Isabella and Amélie, where we made macaroons!

It was however probably the wettest holiday we have ever spent there.  On Loches market the umbrellas were selling really well !!

    1. Susan, I seem to remember it was a partridge, or some other small bird, presented in a slightly quirky fashion, in a brandy snap! It was Nick's choice and he enjoyed it anyway!
