Today was an eventful day at the chateau! My mother battled with her beloved mower, as it came up with a constant stream of excuses as to why it couldn’t work. Once again, she rocked an extraordinary outfit that has to be seen to be be believed – but let’s just say that it involved the use of a trunk strap as a ribbon. Luckily, she was distracted from the mower problems by an exciting parcel bearing gifts, and a good dose of lemon drizzle cake.
We show you what life is like in an ancient chateau in the heart of the French lockdown, and the creative crafts and activities that we’re turning to to make the most of this period of enforced relaxation.
