Yesterday we went for a walk in the La Forêt de Preuilly. We’ve walked there many times and as it was such a beautiful afternoon we decided a walk would settle our nerves. Actually, we were nervous on Rhiannon’s behalf. Earlier in the day she was interviewed for a new job and we were all waiting to hear.
Our starting point…

Now Rhiannon has the kind of record which, if not retired, I could only aspire to. Every job she has been interviewed for she has been appointed to.
The call came when we were about 80% of the way around our route. My shriek would surely have woken any hibernating animals! She’d got the job and was excitedly telling us all about the interview as we walked along. After about ten minutes the battery failed, so we finished the call with the intention of getting back to the car and continuing our conversation from Le Pre Vert.
After walking for a few more minutes we both decided we were going in the wrong direction, and decided to cut along one of the tracks to get us back on track. Surely enough we found the marked way and followed the arrows.
It seemed like a long way, but we thought that we’d probably walked further off the correct path than we’d realised, so we trekked on.
Just when we thought we were at the etang car park at Ribloche we noticed the words ‘Etang Neuf’.
Somehow we were now at the furthest point of the OTHER marked path, with quite a hefty trek back!! Our short walk had taken just over three hours including a couple of short breaks for a sip of coffee. As we drove back to Le Pre Vert the sun was just setting…
The successful candidate. Congratulations and well done, Rhiannon. Brilliant news xx
