Don't blame you Hosta. I would be upset too.

I always thought we were a close family but since I've been in France no one ever writes to me and it's always me who phones and sends birthday cards. I go to see them, they never come here. 3 brothers and a sister. Brother I was closest to died a long time ago, cancer. SIL, sister of husband No 1 (died '98), writes and rings more often.

Lovely Verdun, one of my favourite photos so far.

Good morning Marion. You look lovely and smiley.

I have daughter, SIL and 2 grandchildren here. They are moving house, will be a lot nearer me. Moving in on Wednesday, but have moved out of old house.

Morning all. Been busy with daughter and family, lots of chatting.

Wondered where you were, Womble.

Favourite native mammal?

Can't say that bats are my favourites. This house was full of them when we moved here as it hadn't been lived in for 6 years. They are quite messy, pooing and weeing from the ceiling! Thank God most have moved to the garage now. Wasn't a garage at first, we built it. But often my car's windscreen needs washing before driving.

Good heavens, I wouldn't get that far, I would have been  before the end of the first bottle.

Haven't been to Galway. Been to Dingle and Wicklow. I hope you have a lovely time Liri.

It's my birthday

Mine is the 16th, Verdun. Parents lived on a houseboat on the Thames so I was born near my grandparents, Ipswich. They had to sell the boat in case I fell in the river!

Where are you going in Ireland, Liri? I have some happy memories of riding holidays.

Been busy since grandchildren arrived. Daughter is putting them to bed, late but it's the holidays.

It's my birthday

Happy Birthday Caroline, have a lovely day.

I thought Verdun's birthday was the same month as mine - September.

Forgot GW and Beechgrove this morning, never watch TV on Sunday mornings and daughter's MIL turned up with the grandchildren. Daughter had asked her to come this afternoon but MIL wanted to get back to Bordeaux before the holiday traffic got bad.
