Well, it's almost holiday time. Today is last day of semester, so that means 3 1/2 hours of grammar class this afternoon. And before you groan, no it is not all grammar - there is a component of speaking in it as well - thank goodness! It's also quite an easy class - it's doing all the grammar I have already done, but consolidation is good.
Now, my week in Angers. First of all, everyone should be very proud of me. I have done things ...

Was a late start for us as we pottered around, in no great hurry! And eventually got to the lovely Angers. Was a really beautiful and imposing Castle/Fortress in the centre of town and gorgeous winding streets with pretty little shops! Dan is loving behind the Camera and we are playing all sorts of games with Ella to keep her interested! Although she does often say she misses her cousin George. We hope we can find some children soon to enjoy her time ...
