Usborne books representative in Brittany and NormandyGood to be back in France after a hectic couple of weeks back in Blighty where we had a reunion with some relatives from Australia and stayed in an interesting converted windmill in East Sussex. I’m now gearing up for the Anglo Info ‘Living, working and enjoying life in Brittany’ Exhibition in Josselin on Saturday and Sunday, where I’m having an Usborne Book Stall. My latest team member Karen who joined Usborne last week is also going to be helping me, so we hope to book lots of Home Parties in the run up to Christmas.

On Wednesday I am doing a reading workshop and Usborne Book Sale in ‘Elizabeille’ in Laurenan. Drop in anytime from from 2.30-5.30 for storytelling, and crafts for kids.

For anyone interested in Fish and Chips, a van will be coming to ‘Elizabeille’ on the first Saturday of every month, starting this Saturday at 19.00.
