▷ THE CHATEAU DIARIES 129: Reunited at Last!!!

It’s finally happened – after two months of lockdown I left the chateau on an awfully big adventure and went to collect Michael Petherick at the Chateau de la Basmaignee. It’s so amazing to be reunited! We have lots to celebrate, as we haven’t seen each other for months and in that time he’s launched his incredibly successful YouTube channel  @Doing It Ourselves  Before jumping into the car to get Michael, I have updates from Dan the Gardener and Ian the Builder re progress in the chateau and gardens, and Antoine and I open lots of lovely, thoughtful parcels! From now on, parcel opening will always be in the Tuesday vlogs 🙂

A very special thank you to all of you who have become Patrons of the Chateau de Lalande. As you can imagine, your help means more to me now than ever. Because of you, I’ll be able to keep living at Lalande and making videos even without our chambres d’hotes income during lockdown! I’ve been overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity. On behalf of this beautiful chateau that will continue to survive and flourish because of you, thank you!!!

    You can just be as happy with children as without I used to get asked when are you going to have children all the time there’s more to women than just having children. It’s nice if you have them it’s also nice if you don’t it would be very boring if everybody was the same. I think you could with all the material you have makes up some nice cushions and sell them as a sideline. And I’m super excited to see how you do the courtyard how exciting.
