Exams season is drawing gradually to a close

Gwilym has now had all his exams. Apparently in his English oral the examiner gave up and they just chatted because it was obvious his English was well up to scratch. He says his other exams were no problem.

Catrin has just one exam left for this year, her French oral on Thursday morning.

Meanwhile a variety of books has arrived at the house, including "Worshipping with Calvin" for which a review is to be expected today, and "Albert Camus and the minister" which promises to be a fascinating read.

Today if Fête de la Musique, but the temperatures have been in the mid 30s, at which point the family lose the will to do anything but lie around. The day has started promisingly with soft, refreshing rain so maybe we'll get into Pessac or, ideally, Bordeaux, to hear some street music...

It will start for me with the AGM of the local Music School at 9:45am with croissants and chcolatines and musical interludes.

Oh yes, and a local grey cat has started visiting us each day. We've known her for a long time, but she's always been quite timid. Now she's appropriated the house and pops in to survey all that of which she is master.
