At the very beginning of September we held the "Workers Lunch" for everyone who works for, or is associated with Charles Edwards Antiques Ltd.....Last year the rain poured down but this year the Gods were smiling and it was a glorious late summer day. We were 23 for lunch
We ate under cover in our open barn
All the food disappeared at speed
The boys stuck together!
A few days later we left for our house in Provence........two days in the car stopping in Beaune on the way and suddenly we were back, it was as if we had never left.
The skies are a special sort of deep blue, and after the cold of rain in England we have found ourselves in the summer, it is hot, dry and wonderful.
We have been re-visiting favourite places and seeing friends, enjoying the wonderful weather, it has been a long year and it is a joy to unwind.
