Not Quite Finished

Normally at this time of year we are thinking about which of the ladies is going to over-winter in Preuilly, and which we are going to have to find a foster home for.

I was getting to that stage at the start of this week, but we have had a job enquiry come in. Most years we would have tried to find a way of saying "it's too cold, and the cars don't have heating" without sounding like we were saying "no". This year is different: it's been very mild, and I thought it would be good to get out of the house. We don't yet know if the enquiry will amount to a booking, but we're hopeful.

At some stage soon we will have to make the decision as to who goes where, but hopefully this year we can get Célestine in to the mechanic's for a minor front end rebuild and Claudette can stay at home.

We do have a booking for just before Christmas, but it's for a largish group and we won't be using a Traction. Then we can start thinking about next year.
