Neighbours…..everybody needs good neighbours….

You can tell what Australian soap I watch every afternoon!

But it’s true. We have been helped immensely since our arrival here by our neighbours. Chris massacred a weeping willow recently and the garden was full of spindly branches and long fronds. Our kind neighbour Georges volunteered his tractor and trailer and with three trips to the village déchetterie the job was done.

Chris and Georges off to the tip

This morning it was warm and sunny, just like spring, and we enjoyed a fine walk from the lavoir in Varanges up to the Faitral and through the woods before descending into Cortambert. Considering this local walk was nothing new for many of us, we were surprised by the huge turnout of our neighbours with their visiting families.

Our lovely neighbours and their families…

The youngest member of our group today was baby Sartori, only one year old. It’s best to start them young! We also enjoyed the company of Annie & Christian, all the way from Macon. We must be famous.

……plus baby and two little dogs

Thanks to all who made this morning so enjoyable. The next walk will be on 20th of March. Chris will send out information nearer the time.
