what a week end, yin fact you could hardly call it a weekend as it started on Wednesday. the day of the constitution in Spain, which means a national holiday, but not in France as France isnt in Spain. we went to France, its become a tradition to go to Auchan on the 6th of December to buy stuff we cant get here,w when infact we can get pretty much all we need here, but its what we do.
Thursday was the village holiday, every village has one in the winter and ours was this Thursday, i helped Moira do one of her gardens then did ours for the rest of the day until we went to Sonny Joes birthday party. He was five, Cerries mum and dad had come out for ther party as well, we had nice time, Pepe made some canopeis.
Friday was the day of the immaculate conception, so another national fiesta, we spent this one going for a long walk with a flask of soup as it was a colder then normal day, as have been most of the days so far in December. thast night we went to Pepes.
Saturday i was working and Moira was going to do a christmas market, but she had a cold and it was windy, and then when we got there to set up, there was nobody around, so i dropped her home to recover and went of to work.
Sunday Moirea did do a christmas fair as it was much better advertised then the one on Saturday while i did the tour of the bunkers, a girl in the village has written a book on the bunkers of Garriguella, and every now oand then she does a small tour ending up in the cooperativa for some wine tasting. its all in catalan which is getting less and less of a problem. i had a lovely day, Moira sold one pair of earings.mascapone

Auchan day, every 6th of December is Auchan day, although now its more like Leroy Merlin, Sephora and Auchan day. we spent lots of money and still managed to come away without enough to make a full meal.
6tyh of December is a national holiday in Spain but not in France.
The weekend went back to the normal Pepes for Friday night with Cerrie and Sonny, the outof town bar is now closed for the winter so there was more people this Friday, not that maby but definetly more, Pepe has also put the fire in there again so its warmer in his bar then it is at home.
Saturday morning i didnt work, it was blowing a gail, so we put the work off to this Saturday, in the afternoon i worked. we still had time thought to go to the market in Figueres and get veg.
Sunday it was still blowing a gail but not as strong as Saturday. Moira had a stall in the local English bar, local as in Santa Margarita. she did really well, has payed for Auchan day. i went for a walk while she was working, coming back everynow and then for a beer.
