Happy Holidays!

I would like to wish all my followers who celebrate Christmas the very best over the holidays!

I am going into blog hibernation until well into the new year, but I will be back with both 'My Life in the Charente' and 'My Life Before Charente' sometime in January.  Meanwhile I will try to keep the PhotoDiary going when possible.  We are off to Casablanca for Christmas and we hope to see a bit of sun and find the weather warmer than it is likely to be in France!

Take care everyone; see you all after the holidays



Joyeux Noel
