Glad you're back Lesley. I know you went South, but how far? I thought it was hols, but sounds more as though you've been caring for your Mum and Dad.
Pool filter man came. Will be another big bill as it needs replacing.
Having problems with Internet, always been slow. Can't look at Berghill's photos.
I'm sorry about Pusscat, Obelixx. xx
Have had problems with Internet today. Orange say there is a problem and a technicien is coming next week.
Man was supposed to come 15 mins ago about the leak in the pool filter.
Will probably do more gardening today. Have 2 bags of daffodils to plant but ground, apart from the top inch, is dry and hard. Rain forecast, hope it comes.
I still have dahlias, despite a few -2° frosts
So will I, DD. Good luck.
I've actually done some gardening at last. 3 barrowloads piled high with past it flowers and some weeds from the long border. Also mucked out horses' field shelter, again. Shoulder is aching.
That sounds fun. We stayed in San Giminiano, well at a farm on the outskirts. Great ice cream.
No I don't run a gite, but I did B&B for a few years some time ago. I have an old French farmhouse.
Crikey, that sounds far worse than the trouble I had with house sitters who didn't water the pots properly. If you didn't swear, shout or hit them, what did you do? If nothing, then you must be a very kind and gentle person!
Italy is beautiful. I'd never been until I met second OH, now I've been several times. Love Tuscany and Ravello overlooking the bay of Naples.
