Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
Been a mad few weeks! We were supposed to be going back to the UK on 1st December for a few days, but the snow came down on Dinard airport and the flight was cancelled. Fortunately a friend called just as we were literally going out of the door, so in the end we didn’t venture out of Mohon and make a fruitless journey to the north coast. Some friends were due to be coming in on the same flight that we were catching out, and they didn’t manage to get back until Saturday evening, and that was into Nantes, not Dinard. Looking at the weather and the road conditions back in Yorkshire where we were intending to go, I was actually quite relieved that our plans were scuppered. I think it would have been a challenging few days to say the least!
As it was we decided that we would put the tree up and Xmas decorations instead, so the house looks all Christmassy now. Decided that we will have duck rather than turkey on Xmas day for a change, but I still need to buy crackers.
Have been busy with Usborne and by chance when I was talking to someone at a Christmas Fair, it was mentioned that AIKB are putting on a pantomime this year in January, over in Gouarec. I used to do a fair bit of Am-Dram in my youth so although it’s not very late on in rehearsals, I rang up to be welcomed with open arms as ‘Villager 3’ and braved the bitter cold (and it was just as cold in the hall where we were rehearsing!) to go to my first rehearsal last Tuesday. The pantomime, which is Cindrella, is on 15th and 16th of January, so I will post some more details nearer the time on here.
Also if there are any ladies out there who would like the chance to buy good quality ladieswear, then I am having a festive ‘ladieswear clearance sale‘ at my house, 18 Rue du Moulin 56490 Mohon , on Monday 13th December 2-5pm. There will be mulled wine and nibbles provided. The clothes are from a ladieswear unit that I used to have in the UK before moving to France. There are some new, most though are ‘as new’ and they are all good makes like M&S, Principles, River island, Next, Per Una, Planet, Jacques Vert etc. Huge range of sizes and all at silly prices, so if you are craving the labels that you know and love, why not come along for a session of dressing up and grabbing a bargain? All welcome!
