We will be away on the third Thursday in July. We are sort of saddos who retreat to the same gite each year. Trouble is that various traditions have been built up with the French families who also turn up every year. So poor Stephen gets to play chess most evenings, in French. Too challenging by half. With quite a bit of Anglo French rivalry thrown in. Our reputatoin is only saved by the fact that our son can beat the French kids. We don't intend to propose bridge.
Third Thursday in August is good. People are welcome to come here. I promise to be more organised. We will save the rest of the herbal vodka.
