Tuesday 27. 01. 09 I have been back just two weeks now and have settled back in. The weather has been mixed but we have had sunny days and we have not had snow! I have returned to my French conversation classes at the Accueil and also to my engraving classes. My freezer has gone kaput, which I have to replace and I have decided to buy a washing machine too but am still checking on the possibilities of second hand or a special promotion at the HyperU. I have been asked to be part of a manifestation at St Mathieu de Treviers in September along with 5 other artists. Not exactly sure what this entails but on verra. Today I have been to my engraving classes and have been struggling with a new technique, frustrating but I’m sure I will figure it out eventually. Next week I am going over to St Mathieu again for a week to do some studies of the Pic St Loup.

Sunday 11. 01. 09 It has been a great visit despite the wintery weather. I think I have seen most of my friends and have also had time to spend with the family. I managed to visit many of my old haunts including the Patrician Grill. I housesat Veronica and Arthur’s house in Rosedale with their cat Foxy in great comfort and for the rest of the time I stayed with Jason, Alisa and Poppy. Christmas dinner was at Rosedale with family and New Year’s with friends at Jon and Barbara’s. I go back to France tomorrow to milder weather brimming with new ideas for paintings and prints. Thanks to everyone for their friendship and their hospitality and best wishes for 2009.
