We've had yet more rain in the last few days. Howling gale now and rain in the night.

Hello Dove, any snow near you yet? We'll be back in January, hope weather doesn't stop flights.

Morning all.

Howling gale and rain here. Usually here is colder than the southern half of England, but not this year, so far. Haven't had snow yet, just endless rain.

Waiting for OH, he's still in bed, past 10.30am here. Going to the SM. Need salmon for OH to make into Gravlax (his speciality) to take to daughter 1 at the weekend.

Funny, why has it done all that in quotes? I went to Edit and it wasn't like that there.

Not botherng to go to bed yet as it's blowing up a storm out there with wind whistling and howling and hail smashing against the shutters and doors.  More rain expected tomorrow and gusts over 90kph.   

See original post

We had howling wind and rain too, but the noise and movement in the night for me was OH's tossing and snoring! He eventually settled down but slept until 10am (UK 9am).

Heard from son 2, two of his littlies had D and V on Christmas day.

We will be going to the SM soon, when OH gets up, to buy salmon for OH to make Gravlax, his speciality, to take to daughter 1 on Friday. We'll be giving her 3 boys their presents then.

I called by the Mairie a couple of weeks ago. She's a Mairesse, said she was aware of the drive, but I think it's a matter of money. They'd been saving for a bit to resurface a minor road which is used quite a lot and had got into a dreadful state, just been done.

That was a stroke of luck, Pansyface, never thought you would have found them.

Love Dick Francis, think I've read all his books. If you'd mentioned racehorses and Dick in the same sentence, Chey, I'd have known straight away.

Thank you, Moira. Glad he's feeling better. We do worry about him, we are all real people behind the messages.

I live down a forest track in France. They used to leave us stuff to repair it but our lovely Maire got cancer and died and the track is neglected now. It's a public right of way, doesn't belong to me.

LB, the point of vodka is to put your summer fruit, like raspberries, in it, add sugar and leave for several weeks. Then you have something delicious to add to a glass of prosecco or white wine.

OH gave me 2 jumpers and a Steam and Clean, which vacuums the floor and steam washes it at the same time. He didn't want to give me that, said it wasn't romantic, but I wanted it so he he gave in, bless him. I'm wearing one of the jumpers and I've just cleaned the big farmhouse kitchen tiled floor, it's brilliant, never looked so clean.
