December 2019

A very Happy New Year to all our blog followers
We are now back at La Maire after spending an enjoyable Christmas in England with the family. As usual in December, we drove back and were fortunate enough to have good weather for the journey. We just had a 50 minute hold-up at Rouen where the 'gilet jaune' protesters had taken control of a roundabout and were only letting the traffic filter through slowly. The drive back home on Friday was good. 
Its turned cold here in the Ariege and our boiler has broken down for the second time this winter so we are keeping warm with electric heaters and hot water bottles until the replacement part arrives.
There is not much sign of snow here yet this winter and the ski resorts have barely opened. Even Andorra is relying on snow cannon to keep the slopes open, so not a good start to the winter sports season!
We have had some bright sunny days and often a foggy morning, which is quite typical of the winter here.
We just have these two photos above of St Victor Rouzaud to share with you this month.
There will be more to follow next month

Best wishes
Lesley and Dave
