We went to that pub in the summer, having found it on Google, but it was shut. We thought we'd try again another time. No time now, back to France tomorrow.

Morning all. We now have Internet in the cottage! Have read back a bit, but there is a lot. Glad Chicky passed her medical and well done Lesley for the decorating. Hope the funeral was bearable Topbird, glad you managed the journey in the awful weather. Glad Hosta is on the mend.

Weather was awful yesterday, snow in the morning, must have been same as Dove' we aren't that far away. Went to Norwich, bought two bedside table lamps from IKEA and two little wooden bedside tables from a wood furniture place the other side of Norwich, in the sale.

ate in the Chinese in Diss last night, sleet and howling gale on the way home. 

This morning it's sunny, but there is ice on the drive.

Morning all. Hope the medical goes well, Chicky.

Feels really early, but this would be nearly 9am in France, so it isn't. 

Hope Wonky is feeling better today. 

Can't the Verdun and Clarice post, I'm a curious, nosy person

We are now in bed in village pub in Norfolk. Plane was delayed as there was a huge hailstorm and they had to de ice the wings. The drive to Bergerac airport was pretty scary because of the hail and the rain and wind.

Sorry to hear of poor Wonky's painful face.

A good neighbour can make such a difference to your life, pansyface. We had lovely neighbours at the first house I bought with my 1st OH. I've kept in touch ever since but haven't heard anything, no Christmas cards, for about 3 years. They always told me when they were moving house, but this time I think either they are in a home or they've died. They must be in their 80s now.

I just put my post on the birthday thread, instead of here, well, except the bit that says happy birthday to Lyn, so I'll repeat it.

Morning all.

Have a lovely birthday, Lyn. Same day as my granddaughter, 4.

Going to Norfolk today. Horrid forecast, Storms, hail, gusts of strong wind. Hope the plane takes off.

I just had 2 emails from M&S to say my delivery of bedding is coming tomorrow (when I want it) and the 2nd to say it's coming in 1 hour's time, when of course, we aren't there yet!

It's my birthday

 I hope you've had a lovely day, Runnybeak. Sorry I'm late, had problems with electricity because of weather. x

It has poured here with strong gusts of wind here today, lost electricity a few times, so haven't been here since this morning.

I hope it calms down before our flight to Stansted tomorrow.

Hate brawn and tripe. Didn't we talk about this before and everyone said  when Dove said she liked it?

Morning all.

Oh dear Hosta, sound like you've caught my bug, but from someone else.

I always seem to get the news from Forkers. How sad about David Bowie, too young to go, what a terrible thing cancer is.

Poured again in the night.
