Happy Birthday Possum.

Hello Frank, good to have you back.

I went to the SM, actually I quite enjoy it and OH did any lifting and carrying of bags, we did it slowly. I'm not really ill, as I was  during the first 2 weeks, it's just the depressing cough with the hurting ribs and now the eye infection again. Have a different sort of antibiotic drops, they already feel better. Roasting chickens on special offer, 4€ and also another 2€ on my fidelity card, because sell by date is tomorrow. Now have Magnums in the freezer  Am I batty wanting ice cream in winter?

What is your weather like? (2)

-10° at 9am. Blue sky. I think I am one of the rare people who prefer mild winters with drizzle, like last year - except last year it rained rather a lot!

Morning all.

So fed up with this bug. I know it's gradually getting better but I had another huge bout of rib hurting coughing in the night and woke up with conjunctivitis (again) this morning. Don't think standing in the -9° cold for the Maire's funeral was a good idea. Been to the Pharmacie for drops.

We are almost out of milk so will have to go to the SM.

Glad Wonky is enjoying her new job.

Was -10° at 9am.

They are so pretty Liri.

It was -12° here at 8.15am.

We went to the Maire's funeral this morning. It was freezing, -9° in the village at 10am. Everyone gathered outside the Mairie for tributes and speeches then we walked down the road to the church, but the church is very small so a lot, including us, couldn't fit in. There were loudspeakers outside but they didn't work very well. I thought he would be buried in the village cemetery, but he is being cremated this afternoon, family only. He was such a nice man, been Maire since 1983, only 64 yrs old.

This evening we are going to an ecumenical service for Christian Unity Week in the French Protestant Temple. It's usually packed with everyone from the French Catholic bishop to the English C of E. Refreshments afterwards and lots of chatter (in French).

Sorry Obelixx, I should have told you to look at the site with your eyes shut! I've had perennials from them, which arrived in good condition. Only the Anemone Wild Swan died, but I've had that from other sources and they all died. Never had roses from them.
