Chris update

Chris had a bit of a setback last week when she had a discharge from one of the wounds on her tummy.  The doctor ordered swabs to be taken.  Lab results showed that Chris had an abscess that had burst.  Luckily it drained out rather than staying in.

Chris jokes that if she was a cat she would be down to seven lives lives now.

She gets tired very quickly so takes a lot of rest but is determined to regain her strength.

About Chris

Unfortunately Chris has had to have a major operation last week. Following 10 days in hospital which included 7 days in intensive care she is now home and on the mend but it will take some time to recover and therefore is unable to blog for a while.

 
 
 
 

Salon La Mode Vintage.

It took meticulous planning, organisation and preparation over several weeks and months to create an outstanding event held in the village yesterday. Well done everyone involved and what a great success it was.

The money raised:- over 1000€ from entrance tickets totalling 520€, clothing sale 480€, and extra prosecco 22.50€. All of which will go to charity.

Preparation for the English afternoon tea. Sandwiches, gorgeous cakes, scones, muffins, buns, gâteau etc. were all made by the ladies of the Craft Session.
 

The music was delightful while everyone enjoyed their afternoon tea.
 

Bon Appétit.
 

For some of the ladies a welcome chance to sit and enjoy the fashion show.
 

Magnificent.
 

Such glamour from all of the ladies who walked the full length of the Salle de Fête,
 

Sophistication, I love the outfit.
 

Jackie (who looked brilliant in this outfit) leading the models for one last walk before the fashion sale.

I could not resist buying a jacket that I had seen a few weeks earlier, plus jewellery and a blouse.

Thank you everyone for your support in attending this event.
 
 

Event:- Dominique Allaert.
At the Ancien Presbytere in Daglan from the 29th June to the 13th July.
 
 

Happy 30th Birthday French Property News.

I have been emailed by a few people asking about properties to buy in the Perigord. It seems that Brexit has definitely given people that little extra push in the right direction to move to France on a permanent or semi permanent basis. So if I can help anyone just ask about properties, the buying process etc.

A good place to start of course is the internet housing agents (immoblier) and look at French Property News Magazine, they are also online with a great deal of properties for sale along with advice on buying, renovating, living in France etc.

This year marks their 30th Birthday, brilliant and of course congratulations. I was working out a few days ago how many years we have been buying the magazine, this will mark our 29th year.
 

First a couple of pictures of the gorgeous scenery of Daglan …
… to temp the appetite.
 

A walk down by the river Ceou on a hot day was perfect for a morning coffee, while we sat and watched the water go by.
 

Now two of the properties for sale in Daglan.

Five bedroom on 2,000 m² of land with separate studio apartment, garage and swimming pool€295.000
 

Stone house to renovate with 1115 m² of land.€45.000
 

The next two are not for sale but I could not resist taking a picture of the insect hotel.

 

And these gorgeous roses at the side of the presbytery with its French blue shutters.

Daglan’s New Outdoor Gym

The outdoor gym is situated next to the tennis court behind the Salle des Fêtes in the village. So you can work out while watching a game of tennis or while taking in the gorgeous vista of the trees, plants and river of the Ceou Valley.

There is a good range of equipment which looks amazing but it is fenced off with red and white tape at the moment, so people need to be a little patience to give the grass time to grow, hence the patches on the lawn in the pictures below.
 

I shall have a go once it is open. Years ago I went to a gym near to were we lived in Blackpool and I could not move anything, it was as though the apparatus was in permanent lock mode. So do not expect too much.
 

Maybe I should stick to my Yoga and my exercise bike for now.
 

Then I shall start with something easy, well that is my plan, we will see.
