In one of their last few vlogs...can't remember which one it was...Stephanie said he was in an accident awhile back and since then his neck hurts sometimes. Maybe untreated whiplash?
He actually said his neck was broken in an accident in the past, and bothers him when it starts to get cold. I initially thought they all got strep, like I did in high school with all my friends from sharing a bong. 😂 Nati was also sick for a couple of days there.

Hi, German here with plenty of French friends - please kindly don't misrepresent our countries and their response to the pandemic, cheers! Firstly, the police DOES fine us for not sticking to the rules, and heftily so. Don't want to doxx myself too much here, but my city just had a massive mask-denier group try to stage a protest in the mask-only city centre and the police very strictly shut that down. In France, you are NOT allowed to break the rules, it is a strict, strict lockdown. Sure, some assholes will find ways to still go behind the police's back, since there are strict rules as to who can search or even enter your private residence, but this is still very much against the law.

No idea what weird, privileged people you know but fuck them for not sticking to the rules given the high death rate especially here in Germany. That's not normal behaviour, it is absolutely gross negligence. And, yes, it is against the law - we just had a law change that makes it possible to impose strict rules during a pandemic. But even if it is "just" a guideline, it is a guideline that common decency should dictate anyone with a soul to follow, because people are dying and suffering greatly. I spent Xmas alone because I didn't want to risk exposing any of my relatives, and so did most of the people I know and respect. THAT is "standard behaviour" here in Germany and France, not being a selfish asshole ignoring ethics.
My first thought day 22 23 and 24..Where the duck are their Masks??? who travels .lands in someone's house with no Mask?

This one has promise once you get past the early episodes with the loud repetitive muzak. The couple seems to genuinely like each other (shocker!) without the ridiculous giggling and costume dancing of La Croix Honnet. Still, with the British contractors though. Do none of these people even try to get local help? So far Dan the Gardener is the only person consistently receiving local help, even if it is just his neighbor.
that kitchen island seems a little tight?

post Christmas charades.

Whether you like her or not and whether you consider what she is doing to be work or not she stays up till gone three in the morning editing the footage. The constant interacting and talking with people may look jolly but it is emotionally exhausting to sustain. She sleeps in to get her quota of sleep. I am not comparing with a nurse on a night shift by the way. I am an early bird. I get up and start work at 4am and am shattered by 7pm. I rarely socialise in the evening. If I did, I would have to have a nap in the afternoon at the very least. And 24 days of that back to back with one hiccup is bloody hard work whether you like it or not. She did say it was 24 vlogs and those super fans were getting on my nerves when they were complaining there was no Christmas Day one...
Let's break it down in what a vlog of hers constitutes. Titles, pre-shot. Half of advent vlogs pre-shot in advance. Filming Marie making floral arrangements, filming doing some cooking, buying a tree, decorating numerous trees, filming a bit of singing in the chapel. None of this is particularly onerous. She does no cleaning, cooking or admin work, there are no B&B guests. In terms of editing these vlogs are a piece of gateau. If you want to talk about work then this isn't it.

I am sure that I read a post from Ma Trotter recently, saying that Billy and Gwen were "legally married" but would be celebrating with friends at some point in the future?
Oh, now that is a tragedy - whatever possessed her? I hope for her sake that she does not bitterly regret this in future... it makes Billy's recent comment "don't get married" even more shabby. What a cad.

Happy to vote for @ChocLili’s suggestion for new thread title — that post from Dan was a last-minute Christmas bonus!
Would also like to keep all chateau-related chat here...
Agree ... good title. Don’t really watch the other chateau related unless directed here by those who are kind enough to bother for me - and so I know who is who when we are natteting.

I reckon it is his missus who is on to that revenue stream.
It’s so vulgar - and greedy.
