Camera Talk - part 2

Went to visit my son recently. We did some Christmas shopping in Auxerre. Pretty old town. Also went for a walk around his village. Photo is of a lavoir where the ladies did their washing long ago. I dread to think how it was washing bedding in winter in freezing water and carrying a heavy, sodden load home. Maybe they didn't change the sheets in winter!

Where is Fairygirl and her lovely photos?

That's great news, DD. Is that the Compromis de Vente that you've signed? I really hope it all goes through smoothly.

Tipped another 6 barrows of manure onto the veg garden then planted 25 tulips and 3 big allium bulbs, Mount Everest, in the middle bed. Still have lots more to plant. Takes longer than I thought as it needs weeding as I go along and mole tunnels need filling in. Maybe that's why my beds are well drained!

Welcome back Hosta.

Hope you get it sorted Fidget.

I've just thrown out a 50L bag of old Christmas cards. I'm a bit of a hoarder  It'll free a place for the next few years worth!

Bought fresh (?) yeast from the SM bakery. Mixed it in warm water with a little sugar and waited for the foam. Nothing happened. Have added powdered yeast to my dough, has now risen.

Hello Glenys. Don't you have clock changes in SA? I'm in SW France, we are always an hour ahead of the UK. Do you have frosts in winter? Here we often have colder winters than UK but hotter summers, often in the 30°s.

Milder this morning, no frost, 6° at 11am.

Morning all.

Good luck job hunting Clari. I hope you find one where they treat you well and pay you more.

I must start the Christmas cards. Must finish the middle bed and plant the tulips in it. Must put another 7 barrow loads manure on veg garden.

We watched the mad fun couple doing up the Chateau, then the Irish family with the English mother. Don't really care for I'm a Celeb.

Was disappointed with Elaine's singing, too.

Glad Rinder went, he's been getting on my nerves for weeks.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

I really liked Claudia's dress, very pretty, more feminine than usual. First dress I've liked on the presenters. But then I'm over 50
