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.

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

I'm sorry you aren't feeling well, Dove. It's a really horrid virus.

Just seen our weather forecast, rain and gales. Going to lunch with friends tomorrow, south of Bergerac so a bit of a drive. Hope the weather isn't too awful.

Morning all.

I know many of my flowers are earlier here, especially roses, because of our long hot summers. But I'm surprised that snowdrops are earlier here too because we tend to have colder winters than in the UK.

Oh bother, Dove, had been feeling jealous that you'd recovered so quickly! Hope it doesn't last too long this time.

Glad Flatters has returned. He may have already dined at another cat's place though.

Forecast is for gales and rain here too.
