Son's curtains will wait as he hasn't put up the rail yet. So I weeded son's flower bed, then we went to a GC and I bought some plants for it, which I have planted.

It was French Mother's Day on Sunday so tomorrow Son is taking me and DIL to a restaurant for lunch, the posh one he went to with his clients, tomorrow before I go home. Little GDs will be at school and playgroup, we'll take baby Elise.

Morning all. Happy holiday to Yvie, but she's probably left.

Sun is shining but it's not too hot. Would like to tackle son's creeping buttercups in his flower beds but he would like me to hem some curtains. He has the rest of the week off and I will go home tomorrow.

Morning all.

Looks a nice day, sun but not too hot.

Last night I watched some of a Lethal Weapon series in French because that's what son was watching.

Have son's curtains to hem today and he has creeping buttercups in his flower beds, don't know if I'll get around to that.

Have collected DIL from hospital with new baby and collected 1 small GD from school. DIL has gone to get the other one now as it's more of a playgroup and in next village.

Been in the low 30s for the last few days. Now I'm on the western edge of Burgundy looking after little granddaughters, it poured last night and is pleasantly cooler.

Poured with rain in the night.

Mornings here are such a rush, and so much earlier than I'd got used to!

Smallest GD wouldn't go to bed last night and screamed, then she did a poo in her knickers this morning. I think she's worried about having a new baby sister when she was the baby. They are both at nursery school now so the house is peaceful. I had 4 children but I was so much younger then! I used to get up at 6.30am to get them all to school, secondary school here starts at 8am. But now I'm a Granny I wake between 8 and 8.30am and drink coffee in bed until 9am!
