How cold is Creuse!
Just back from a week in Creuse.... God it was cold! Spent the first night at the house, which was an idea bordering on the insane, and in the morning - after we had defrosted - fled to the comfort, and warmth, of a nearby hostelry. Never even gave insulation a thought during the balmy, if wet weeks of summer but now it is right at the top of my to do list! Apart from that it was a great week away, with good company from our neighbours, lovely food and some things accomplished. Even went to the Foire de Noel at D le P, got there a little early and probably missed the full effect but the memory of the art of the coconut stall (with accompanying birdsong) will stay with me for some time. Also picked up a copy of Creuse News which I hadn't seen before. Back in Blighty now but wishing I could spend Christmas over there - maybe next year. Anyway have a good Yuletide everyone!
