Hello all. Just read back, lots of memories. RB said "My Mother used to dispense these wonderful concoctions from a cupboard in the kitchen.   Always on bath night.  A spoonful and a big spoonful of Scotts Emulsion which made you shudder. Then the Virol, cod liver oil and Minadex last.". Just the same in our house, except Scotts Emulsion. Loved the orange juice and Delrosa and Virol. Loved kaolin and morphine too. Didn't like school much, sometimes told Mum I had a tummy upset, got rewarded with the k & m.

Two couples of neighbours in the village came to lunch today, chatted a lot. We are in Norfolk, 'spect I've  said.

Here you are Hosta - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-4188918/People-going-potty-new-TV-contestant.html   Don't you like the accents on CTM, Hosta? I have an accent  rather like that.

I watched 2 episodes of Karma Hospital last night, love it.

Happy Birthday to Hosta's OH.

Enjoy the theatre Chicky, sounds fun, even if the play is or isn't it will be fun being with your friends.

Lily P, it's French Boeuf Bourguignon with English dumplings.

Obelixx, when I had cramps when I was pregnant the Doc prescribed calcium and it did the trick. But I don't suppose your case is the same

Morning all. looks sunny outside.

Our neighbours and another couple we've met in the village are coming to lunch today.

Have a good day with your son, Dove.

Pat, I wasn't mowing long grass.   We don't have any grass at our cottage, it's a courtyard garden. The grass in France isn't growing yet.

Morning all. I've been awake for ages reading my book in bed, just got up. Must think about what to do with the day but one thing is cook boeuf bourguignon for tomorrow. Neighbours are coming to lunch.

We are having chicken Korma too, but it's a Sainsbury's ready meal. Bought some other bits and pieces to go with it. But first we are going for a proper English beer in the pub.

Thanks both. Much warmer here than I expected. Hire car said 17°, like France yesterday. Daffodils all over the place, lovely.

Hello girls, we've arrived! Flew from Bordeaux to Luton instead of Bergerac to Stansted, just more driving at each end. It's much warmer than I expected. Hire car said 17°. Had light lunch in a pub on the way and went to Sainsbury's. The daffodils on the verges were so pretty.

I'm another who can't grow spring onions, thought it had something to do with France.

Hello all. We've arrived in Norfolk. Flew from Bordeaux to Luton, bit longer in the car each way than Bergerac to Stansted, but not a bad journey. Stopped in a pub for a light lunch on the way and at Sainsbury's to stock up.

I read back but memory has gone so I'all just say I hope the unwell ones will feel better soon and the ones with troubles will soon see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you to all those who wished us a good journey.
