Why is it sunnier in Cornwall than Dordogne?

Discouraging Wasps

Posted: 24/10/2015 at 13:51

My wasps and hornets seem to get on OK together. They shared all my apples and plums before I got any  We had loads of wasps in Dordogne this year and when we went to East Anglia there were quite a lot there too. I didn't feel very fond of them, especially when granddaughter and a friend got stung. I can't grow melons any more, too dangerous.

I'd please

I think it's Physocarpus "Diablo", RB.

My friend came and went, good to see her, we looked at each others' grandchildren photos and of the cottage we are buying in Norfolk.

I quite like ironing, sit down and watch daytime TV.

I like roast chicken and thyme crisps or just plain salted. Don't fancy them with sweet flavours and alcohol though.

Great bird cage FG.

Good heavens! Am I the only one around here who irons? My iron is over 15 and works very well

Morning all.

Don't forget that 6am for you is 7am for me and DD  But she'd already made breakfast before 7am, still very early for me!

I use a lot more leek than potato in soup, that's quantity not weight. It's all guesswork! I use chicken stock cube too and onions.

A friend is coming this morning, my first ever French friend. Since her OH retired and they moved to Brittany I rarely see her.

My vote would have been the dove too, but I see Dove's already a dove again.

Daughter and children left after lunch and we have been to the supermarket. Vital we went as I have friends coming to lunch on Sunday then I'm helping with a charity "Quiz and Curry" on Tuesday.

I'm sorry about New Kid too, Jo. Like others I thought he was just late home after an adventure.

Morning all. The French crash happened on a country road about 15 minutes from where my daughter lives. She was staying the night with me though. It was one of those huge lorries that carry wood and a coach carrying a walking club of retired people going to walk in the Pyrenees. It sounds horrific because the deaths were mostly because of the fire. 42 dead.

Dove, you do look funny. I'm sure you were a very good mother.
