Happy New Year to you!! Having finally managed to escape from the craziness that is life in retail at Christmas (which we wouldn’t change for the world of course!), I am lucky enough to be spending the New Year with my family tucked away in a lovely friend’s cottage in the Dordogne. With the region predominantly closed for the winter, this trip has become one of bracing country walks and a theme of indoor coziness, huddling around a roaring fire and generally eating too much! Perfect!
