Christmas has arrived in Daglan

I so love Christmas and yesterday was, for me, the official start of festivities, the Christmas tree in the village square was put up and decorated.

The village of Daglan started preparing for Christmas several days ago with council workers placing decorative lights around the village, stringing lights up in several prominent trees and of course the careful placing of Santa’s sledge in the branches of the tree outside Le Petit Paris restaurant. Logically the last thing to be put up is the Christmas tree and what a magnificent example it is.

Event:- Sarlat Christmas Market which is now open until the end of December. I will write about it in our next blog.


My Goodness, Firemen!

The de-icer was out this morning it was -3 when we left the village to go to Castlenaud for bread and then on to the Sunday market at St Cyprian. The country side looked like a Christmas card all crisp and white with frost, gorgeous.

To our great joy several charity events for the Téléthon were in progress, this is such a worthy cause for children each year.

So after buying vegetables, fruit and cup cakes! The cup cakes were from a stall selling cakes, coffee and mulled wine, proceeds for the Téléthon. We had our car washed by the local fire brigade, wow.


I did fancy driving around the car park and returning to the firemen for another car wash, but somehow Paul drove on!


Excellent work


So if you are in the area do pop around for a car wash or mulled wine or cakes or visit the Téléthon website
