We arrived back in France this evening. Plane landed with a huge thump, I was a bit scared, but journey was good compared with Yvie's.
Hot here, 26° at 8pm. Housesitter said it's been very hot. Our room was like an oven, despite the shutters being shut. I opened the windows, then OH went up later and left the lights on, when I went back there where several hornets in there, attracted by the light.
We don't have a lawn to mow anymore and some of the shrubs have sunburn. Don't know when we last had a summer with so little rain.
