Thanks Panda.  Have read back a few pages. Bananas and porridge made me laugh! Glad Dove, Lyn and Hosta had a good time. Seems funny without Dove here.

Now I'll read back, but not sure about 2 weeks worth! Probably take hours.

Morning all.

We came back on Sunday evening. Were in Sicily for 1 week and in Norfolk and Eastbourne the second week. There was an enormous thunderstorm in Sicily, never seen anything like it. Quite scary with rocks streaming down roads like rivers and parts of the hotel were flooded. We were in a coach coming back from Syracuse to Taormina when it started. The next day we couldn't leave the hotel because of the rain, our Rep from Thomson's organised a quiz - we did very badly!

Our boat trip was cancelled, but at the end of the week the sea was calm and the sky was blue so we booked another boat trip. But it was Italian not English. We enjoyed it though. We swam in a glorious warm turquoise sea and drank cocktails in the water. Then more cocktails and plates of fresh fruit on the boat.

Then off to England to see family.

Thank you all for my lovely birthday wishes, cakes and cards. OH took me out to a restaurant in Diss on my birthday, but not a fine day, it rained! Enjoyed it though, we drove up to the broads and took a little boat ferry and had a beer in a pub.

It's my birthday

Thank you everyone for the cards and beautiful cakes, they look too good to eat.

We are back from Sicily, actually over a week ago then we went to Norfolk then Eastbourne. Had a great time, despite the huge thunderstorm in Sicily, torrential rain.

I hope you had a good birthday, Lily.

It's my birthday

Happy Birthday Verdun! I hope you have a lovely day and lots of donuts. 

Can't a card as I'm in Sicily using OH's iPad.  xxx

I hope no one feels excluded from this forum because politics are discussed. Just post what you feel comfortable with, you don't have to join in with political and emotional stuff. This forum is for everyone who would like to be here.

I feel sad about the migrants and we (Church of England in SW France) are collecting for Les Restos du Coeur to provide meals and baby items for the people who can't afford to make ends meet here in France. Unfortunately, the world is not an easy place for many, often because of human failings such as war and intolerant religions.

I'm almost ready to go on holiday tomorrow, have packed. Gardener's World on shortly.

How lovely of your son, Dove. We are so lucky to live in Europe.

May not have time to write again before we go. Depends on Wifi and OH's ipad when we are away. Been a busy day.

Vet has been, he's pleased with Archie's progress, but it will take at least 3 weeks to heal. Friend will come and wash wound and put the stuff on it every 3 days while we are away.

I hope Charlie has a good party.

I must go and prepare for going away.
