Daughter and 3 sons have just gone. Peace reigns! But I did enjoy their visit. I think I've put on weight, jeans are tight, all those family meals.


My sister's grandson has Cystic Fibrosis. I need to get a genetic test done to see if I'm a carrier, my sister is. No one here seemed to know what to do and as soon as the hospital found out all the family descended so I haven't had time.


Feel tired now, think I might go and watch the Olympics, haven't had a chance yet.

That's funny, I hadn't clicked post reply and the 2nd photo was still downloading when it posted itself!

Cake was all eaten, sorry Fairy! It was chocolate and we had the other half yesterday.


Here is the river.

This morning daughter, grandsons and I went to the Hypermarket to buy the boys all the stuff they need for school. Special offers on. Got a trolley load of exercise books, folders, pencil cases, bags etc. Then we met OH at the Chinese buffet wok place, which went down very well with the boys.


This afternoon we went to the river where it goes through the woods, taking chairs, a rug, tea and cake. The boys had great fun playing in the river, not too deep and has clear water. Will post photos when I've downloaded them.

There are lots of caves in Dordogne. The Gouffre de Padirac has an underground river and you ride in a boat as you said, but it's some way from here. The cave we saw today has marks of bears scratching the walls and a few paintings.

What a lovely prize, Liri. Are you sure you haven't any plants to support? Glad the toad is free again.


Daughter and 3 grandsons are here, came before lunch yesterday. We've had a lovely day. We went for a long walk to the place where the river leaves the village and goes through the woods. The boys paddled and we sat and watched. They want to go again for picnic tea tomorrow. Then came home for a late lunch of spag bol. In the afternoon we visited some very pretty caves at Villars.  http://www.northofthedordogne.com/grotte-villars.php


My flowers ..

I did post Didiscus. They are in 2 different pots but are a bit overwhelmed by other things in the pots and took a long time to get going. I sowed 2 trays, one tray produced 4 plants. The other one died as housesitter didn't water them. They were smaller, later sowing. Pretty but bit floppy, paler and smaller than I'd thought, won't be growing them next year. May be too hot for them here. Petunias and Dahlias do best. I think pelargoniums do very well too, but all the French grow them so I stopped.

I water the pots one side of the house one day and the other side the next day. I give them a good soak. Flower beds get the sprinkler about once a week each one. Veg garden every 2 -3 days. Last water bill was about £700 , but that's cheaper than joining the local Golf club! The water board told me there is an underground river here that has never dried up, it was full after the wet winter. It was 30° today.
