So, what has been happening at Vue de Duras? We have had a false alarm thinking that spring had arrived....

While there, we hopped over the boarder into Spain for a Tapas lunch in St Sebastien..needless to say Hugh didn't have octopus (neither did I!)

I have been trying to decorate the kitchen, I'm getting there - the beams have been treated to prevent insect problems, the ceiling and walls painted and a dresser 'shabby chic-ed'. Hugh keeps moving - anything standing still too long gets the 'Annie Sloan' treatment!
And today is Hugh's birthday! We are celebrating that, the first year of his 'retirement', and, coming soon......
......the completion of the shutter painting! Nearly there now, let's just hope there is enough time between the end of the bad weather and it getting too hot!
A bientôt X
