Its now mid-November and we have had some pretty autumnal weather, cold
and rainy. But most days manage some sunshine. Especially today.This
week has been busy. Delia has had a lot going on and I currently have
four websites in various stages. Well… two are mostly finished, just
some final checking by the clients. Another one for a gîte in
Gers (way south of here) and another website just about to begin. This final one
came to me by virtue of them having seen one of the other websites which is nice!
I had been thinking about how sparse the population is here and its
seeming age bias leaning towards the retired. It means I have a small
local potential clientele but also fewer competitors. In fact it really
makes little difference, referrals and local advertisement seems to work
fine (eventually) and I can work anywhere.
This lunchtime we have been invited to lunch at a restaurant we haven’t
been to before. Its fish and chips are great apparently, and whilst we
usually avoid the expat bias towards expat cuisine – what the heck! And
Delia can have pulled pork. So because we’ll be out for a few hours,
Siena has had a nice long walk in today’s glorious sunshine, through the
banks of autumn leaves and down to the river (avoiding the hunt that
seems to be about).
