    • Wise Blood  - Flannery O'Connor
    • I'm a tour guide (not that there's going to be much of that this year!) mainly for one of the big river boat companies though I'm strictly very part time, usually with one or two shifts a week during the summer. When I take tours round the local town we finish with a visit to one of the Sauternes chateaux and a tasting. Our house was a winemaker's house at one time and still has the old winery, minus tanks etc, at the back. It's no mansion though, basically a cottage, its vineyard which has long since been sold was ony ever just a few acres.
    • Do you work in a winery Viccie?  It’s good that you have an exclusive wood next door, so handy to escape into an area where you can enjoy the forest without  it being busy with others.  Sounds as though the district is well organized where you have to have your particulars noted on paper.  Hope all goes well where you are and that we can all at some point defeat this horrible virus.
    • Blood and Beauty - Sarah Dunant
    • I'm very lucky in that I live in the middle of the vines in rural France so there's plenty of scope for going out though we are supposed to only leave the premises for exercise  for one hour a day and not more than 1 km from home and carry a signed piece of paper with our names and address, darte and time on it. Fortunately there is a wood next door where no one ever goes so I can nip in there for an extra walk if I'm restless!   Behaviour in the supermarkets here is pretty impeccable but that could be because we're out of town.   I belong to several expat groups on Facebook and all I can say about quite a large proportion of some of the partiicpants is that it's time Facebook added a "sanctimonious" emojo to Like, Live, Wow etc.
