Pat and the children returned to France for the restart of school while I stayed in the UK for a week of church visits.
The family had a nice, uneventful journey and got the 24 bus to the Pape Clément vineyards from where a shot walk gets you to our home.
Sally had done a sterling job looking after the guinea pige and guarding the house. When the weather was good, I think she really enjoyed her time "in the country", but when it's raining then a flat in the city centre is just as good.
My last week was a mixture of ghastly, rainy motorway driving, happy meetings in churches, slow conversations with friends and a final farewell to Bath, all to the obbligato of a persistent irritable and irritating cough !
