Morning all. Leaving Eastbourne and OH's family this morning. Staying with friends tonight, home tomorrow. France has been warm and sunny.

Been watching Downton and the Strictly results with OH's daughter and SIL. I love Downton. It's beautifully presented with a great cast and all the characters are so human whether upstairs or downstairs. It's not all about snobbism and looking down on the servants. It's fictional history and interesting to see that part of life in the past and how it changes and goes through the war and afterwards. There is selfishness but also a lot of sympathy and kindness.

I didn't see Countryfile but the Vaughan Williams Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis is one of my favourite pieces and brings back memories of my first OH.

Meant to say - glad Dove and Wonky had a good day. Do you both look gorgeous with the new haircuts?

Morning all. We are going out to lunch today with DIL, SIL and the grandchildren.

Hello Poddington. Lovely rainbow.

Have been to see my sister this evening, two nieces were there too.

DD, I refuse to set the table when I'm cooking, told OH that I just can't do both.

Just had a yummy hot cross bun, can't buy them in France.

Sorry to hear about your tummy bug, hope you are well now.

Choisya Ternata has glossy green leaves. Sorry I don't know about camellias or hydrangeas.

You could always try sowing sweet peas and see what happens.

Morning all. We are going to look at shops in Eastbourne and we'll see family this afternoon.

Have alovely day Dove and Wonky. Hope Hosta manages his journey.

How maddening, Gertie, how selfish some people can be.

I feel for you Hosta. I was knocked over by a horse and got galloped on my thigh about two years ago, huge round black bruise, still hurts sometimes.

We have left Norfolk and are now in Eastbourne, seeing OH's grandchildren.

Sorry, Dove! I'm not a local - yet! But my Grandpa and his father and his father too worked there.

Morning all. Hope it's dryer today. Had to change our plans on Wednesday. Were going to explore other villages near where we bought our cottage (well not quite bought yet, waiting for solicitors), but poured so much we went and looked at retail parks round Norwich instead.

We explored Norwich yesterday, lovely town. Saw some gorgeous curtain materials and a huge emporium with secondhand furniture in it, some nice some awful, but good value.
