Andree has decided that her family tomb is redundant. She is the last of her line to live in Esperaza so she has arranged that the current residents will shortly be disintered, cremated and scattered in the Field of Rememberance behind the cemetry.
Which leaves an empty family tomb; room for six, stone built. Price negotiable. Cheaper than having one built from scratch.
Spent this morning in the mountains watercolouring with Kat and Margaret. We went to the vineyards just below Esperasas' communal forest - beautiful, beautiful.
Then we went to lunch at Rennes Le Chateau on account of art is hard work. Here are Les Girls at Le Dragon de Rhedae by the eponymous chateau where we had a very good meal - oeuffs en cocotte avec foie gras followed by more deliciousness based on fish, spuds and aioli with a hint of vedg.
Which reminds me, John took me and Kat to TyRex last night and while it isnt haut cusine it was jolly good - we had the mixed grill and good red wine and were happy bunnies.

Here is Jannis, visiting from Berlin, to research my Papa - wonderful guest and I get to talk all day, plus eat out every night. Creperie Friday, TyRex last night, not loosing any weight but very smiley.
Market is looking good; we seem to have been spared the horrendous floods in Nice and Cannes. Love to friends who live that way, be safe xxx

The only other news is that I've signed the papers to be decommissioned from the lists to stand for a role in local politics. Phew!
Things are getting hot here as the mayors opponents line up in the race for power.
