Morning all.
We have a howling gale. Huge gusts of wind, scary. Friend village has just rung to see if I'm OK. They've lost their porch. I hope there aren't any trees down on the drive. The horses are very nervous.

My sons live in France, married to French girls, but they will both be cheering for England.

I was sorry to read about your auntie Kitty.

Hope it all works out, DD.

I was so tired I went to sleep during the Big Dreams programme and woke up right at the end. Wish I'd recorded it. Is there a repeat? I thought that budget was £8k, did it really go up to £25k?! It looked quite pretty, what I saw of it, but a bit daft in a small garden.

Had a good lunch south of Bergerac with friends, but nearly 1h30 drive away. Good chatter too.

Morning all.

I enjoyed the Michael Portillo UK railway journeys. He's doing the USA now, but I haven't managed to watch any of them. Must be on earlier as it's when I'm cooking.

Going to friends south of Bergerac for lunch today, bit of a drive, but I'm picking up another friend on the way.

Not in Dordogne! Faience tiles are earthenware, carrelage is on the walls and dallage is on the floors. Tuiles are the same, on the roof.

A piano is a range cooker.

Bedtime, nighties.

At least you were allowed to go to a nightclub. I wasn't!  I had to be back by 9pm and that was from the church youth club! Once I was allowed out to a party, when I was 16, until midnight, because the girl's mother was a friend of my mother. When Dad came to fetch my sister and me I was kissing a boy under the dining room table - but he didn't see! Things changed somewhat when I went to London aged 18 to start nurse training.

What is your weather like? (2)

No, I don't know them, but I'll enjoy looking at their site. Thank you.
