We had a very pleasant evening last night in our courtyard with the other 'Brits' of the village.It was the first time they had actually all got together though they have had homes in the village for many years. This was due to a number of factors, not least the timing of their visits to their respective holiday homes.Everyone came to this area of France to immerse themselves in the culture of the countryside and did not expect to find other British people here. We all have our own story to tell about what brought us here, but unanimously agreed we are all glad we did. The evening also had a little international flavour with David our French neighbour and friend plus our American friend Karen adding to the mix. Alfresco dining on October 2nd - we wouldn't be doing that in Scotland! A good night (plus 'un peu de vin') was had by all.
