January isn’t usually a month when I take a break from regular Winedoctor updates, but this January has turned out to be rather different. I am having a slightly enforced break from regular updates until January 16th.
Last Saturday I flew out to the Loire Valley (via Bordeaux believe it or not – that felt weird) in order to take possession of a house I purchased. I knew I wouldn’t have time to make updates this week, but had intended to make that clear in a blog post such as this. Unfortunately internet access has been more difficult than anticipated, so please accept my apologies for this late ‘announcement’!
I have no phone line or wifi and although I spent a morning in an Orange shop today, and I now have all the necessary equipment, I doubt my line will be switched on until the weekend. So radio silence will continue. In case you’re wondering, I am posting this from my phone via dodgy 3G.
It is only Tuesday, but in the last three days I hired a van, bought and transported a pile of new furniture, collected my keys, half-sorted a phone line, signed the final documents with my notaire, made some basic repairs and met the neighbours (not in that order I have to say).
I will have time for one or two visits – I have one this afternoon in Bourgueil. And please rest assured normal service will be restored ASAP.
