Hello Forkers ... August edition

I really liked that Italy Unpacked series.

The families have gone off to visit a local chateau then daughters are going back home and son will be leaving tomorrow. Cool and windy today. We lunched in the dining room and the children were in the kitchen.

Morning all.
Storm and rain in the night, it actually woke OH up, not me, which is unusual. I slept until 5am, woke up for the loo to find the lights weren't working. Trip metre had gone again. Must get OH to reset the water heater, I keep forgetting how to do it.

Weather is a shame for the family though as they (3 children, OHs, 8 grandchildren) are staying and they'd planned to do outdoor things and swimming. June was so hot and dry, just when it was school time.

Dacha, some of us meet sometimes, usually to look at a garden open to the public. I have made a lifelong friend who I met here, she doesn't post any more, but I see her every year. I live in France and she lives in England but we holiday in each other's countries. I have also met Dove and Topbird and some others who no longer post here. I have  friend here in France who has met Hosta.

We had a great holiday in Ravello, which overlooks Amalfi, very beautiful.

Having a small breathe now, Fairygirl! My children are bathing their children, then all the adults will eat.

The grandchildren are all munching sausages in the kitchen.
Glad your teeth are OK Obelixx. Smoked prawns sound nice, haven't seen them here.

I'm not watering this evening, we are on an orange storm alert.

Storms forecast for this evening, nice sunny morning, families gone to a river for canoeing and paddling, 2 loads washing on line, another in machine, 2 Pavlovas in the oven, bread in the bread machine - huge clap of thunder and the power went off, then it started tipping with rain. Didn't last long though and power was only the trip metre so I was able to reset it.

I like doors too, then there's a choice of shut or open. We often shut outside doors and windows in the summer to keep the heat out, bedroom shutters too. Open them at night.

The families have all gone out, older ones are canoeing and families with littlies are going to a swimming beach by a river. They are all lunching out too. Peace! I have been doing housework and washing, machine is on 3rd load. Will make a Pavlova and a loaf of bread. Storms are forecast this evening, hope the washing is dry by then.

No time to watch sport but had to watch the last Poldark of the series last night.

Know how you feel, Yvie, I have IBS too, really awkward when travelling sometimes.

Yvie - "Short and Sassy" the name of the helenium I bought at the Old Vicarage. I'd forgotten it's name.
