Eamon Andrews or Leslie Crowther?

My house. Hard to find pic, I only seem to snap the garden.

02/01/2013 at 18:11

Aah Liz-that is lovely- I WANT IT !!!!

02/01/2013 at 18:11

I loved Crackerjack.

From another angle, lower down.

s'not fair-I am green with envy

02/01/2013 at 18:27

Green with envy, Lizzie, perhaps I had better call myself Spring Cabbage after all

Leslie Crowther and Peter Glaze.

Me, too--my house is really a glorified shack--but the location makes up for it. Do love that arbour, though.

02/01/2013 at 18:39

Ooh am drooling as well!

I always watched Crackerjack!

Need to get the decoration boxes down later ready for the dismantling. Daughter will be sleeping after nights this w/end, so shall either need to have done it, or be very quiet- not easy in my case.

May drag OH down to pics on Saturday, if he's not too busy with work again.

Daughter has promised me new photos of our/my garden sometime soon. They gave me a calendar of pics from garden, shows & Austria - all out of synch with the flowering months - but still rather good.

Just had the remains of the cauli cheese pasta with veggie sausages & ketchup & wine......oh dear. J.

That is beautiful Lizzie - and makes my garden look very plain and boring so I'm not posting any pictures! 

I have lived abroad before (2 years in Belgium) and found then that you soon get to meet other ex-pats and aren't short of company, plus you get an endless stream of visitors looking for a cheap holiday! I'm not daunted by the prospect. Where my brother lives there is a large English community and you are just as likely to hear people speaking English in the town as you are Spanish. I'd go tomorrow if I could. 

Inka, I'm sure your home is warm and comfortable!

Son gave me one of those Berlitz Spanish courses for Christmas-have played a bit-can't remember any of it now

Don't really want to mix with ex-pats-one of the reasons for going

02/01/2013 at 19:14

Oh dear, I didn't want everyone to be green with envy, I wanted them to show me their houses. It was OH at the time (the OH who died) who wanted to move to France. I love England and tried to make my garden look English - but now I love France too. I'm just lucky to live somewhere beautiful. Years later I now have another lovely OH, but it was hard in between.

Liz-if we dish out the plaudits take it-it would be nice to see other people houses-I tried but nobody noticed

Lottie has never posted a picture yet-she needs training and gajoling-but she did give me chocolate marzipan-so is forgiven

02/01/2013 at 19:23

Okay Lottie, why is he getting special treatment?? I've checked my cyber locker, but nothing's there.

02/01/2013 at 19:25

Swapped it for the apples-it is like a seed swap only more fun

02/01/2013 at 19:28

Fair enough!!

02/01/2013 at 19:29

Do you have any fruits to swap?

02/01/2013 at 19:35

You can have the strawberries off my gateau if you want!

02/01/2013 at 19:37

Then you give me your address and I will send you some pips-might even send Gladys Night as well
