Waiting for ... (13)

The touristic season is getting to an end. Nevertheless we still had one premiere this week: the first French couple that took the table d'hôtes (dinner) with us. This may seem strange to you, but in fact it isn't. A lot of French tourists stay in chambres d'hôtes to visit friends, to go to an anniversary party, a marriage, ecc.

Although the weather remains summerly the mornings are getting fresh - so for the first time this season breakfasts were taken inside.

Progress is still made in the house. At last the missing curtains arrived and some curtain cords (embrasses) too. They should have been delivered more than two months ago. Again thanks to Martine for helping us out during the whole season.

To mention also a beautiful soiree with couturier Arturo Costanzo: lovely food, nice atmosphere, singing and dancing, accompanied on guitar by Yvan, a french singer, whose repertoire also contains English pop songs as Nights in White Satin and Without You (thanks to Céline).
