France Telecom can't mend our line until the 6th October. Fed-up. OH is going to England for a few days and I will be on my own in the middle of a forest, no near neighbours, with no phone or Internet. Feel rather vulnerable.

We had hot sunny weather until Tuesday when we had a huge storm that blew a tree onto our telephone line, no Internet, no phone. Borrowing a friend's Internet. Since then it rained and has been cool and cloudy.

We were having dinner on the terrace in the warm evening then the sky changed, see photos. Should still be daylight, had been sunny.

Hello all. Our phone line is still down, so I'm at friend's house in the village again borrowing the Internet.

I hope Wonky is feeling better, tummy bugs are horrid.
Can't get crackling here, they take all the skin off the pork. They make a horrid dish with it, they boil beans with pork skin then they say what a wonderful flavour it gives the beans and they eat the white, flacid, greasy boiled skin - YUK!

Obelixx, I'm really enjoying Poldark, mistakes and all, glad they have re-done it.

Here is a photo of the sky before the storm. We were eating dinner outside on the terrace on Tuesday evening, warm and peaceful, then the sky went dark. It came very quickly with tremendous wind, I could hardly shut the kitchen door and the noise was scary.

Hello all, from a friend's Internet. My phone line is still down.

Thank you Runnybeak and Lesley for remembering my birthday. I've just been to the Birthday Thread, , I'm very touched.

Fig chutney is nice with paté.

I've just read back, but too much to comment on and loads of emails waiting.

Thank you very much everyone and special thanks to Runnybeak for the first birthday wish Gorgeous cakes, wish they weren't virtual though!

My phone line is still down.  I'm borrowing a friend's Internet. Hope I can come back soon.

I hope Verdun had a good birthday, seemed to have missed that.

Hello all.

We had a huge storm and a tree fell on my phone line, so I don't have phone or Internet at the moment. Just catching up on emails at a friend's house. Don't know when it will be repaired, don't suppose we are the only ones. I didn't have a mobile either because I lost it at Stanstead, but when the tree was cut up by local farmers I was able to go out and buy a new phone.

So I won't be posting until it's repaired.

It's been hot, but I think storms are coming.

I'm sure it is a Mandevilla, I have one.

LL is OK, but not opening her garden anymore. It's still beautiful though.
