Evening all. Busy day. Friends came to lunch after church. They admired the garden which gave me a boost. Then at 5.30pm we and a couple of the friends went to a violin and cello concert in a pretty village, Saint Jean de Cole. It was very good. We came home and dealt with all the washing up, then had sweet corn from the garden. Now I'm catching up with emails and stuff on the laptop.
Must clean dining room as friends coming to lunch on Sunday. Then going to look after son's baby. Should have gone on Wednesday but they all had a tummy bug.
We are going to Lake Garda in early September. Now I'm going to bed. Night all.
When I was small my mother had a scullery with a copper for boiling the nappies and Daddy's hankies, and a mangle. I used to sit on the floor with a bowl of water and soap flakes and wash Daddy's socks. We had herring roes or bone marrow on toast for tea. It wasn't very long after rationing.
My birthday is in September and I'm a Virgo too. Supposed to be a home loving perfectionist. Is that why my house gets so untidy?
When the family were staying recently, baby grandson's baptism, we had champagne. I offered my 8 yr old grandson a sip and he said "Oh no, I can't, Mummy says children aren't allowed". Mummy is my daughter who would have had a sip when she was little.
70€ is about £56, but I expect you've got there by now! It all depends on the exchange rate anyway.
Morning all, cool but sunny.
Going to make raspberry icecream, friends coming for Sunday lunch. Must think of a first course.
I have lots of blackberries, but unfortunately they are brambles growing in my shrubs!
You can still get Mateus Rosé and I still like it. My father gave me my first sip of hock when I was 8, I really liked it.
That garden specialises in Michaelmas Daisies. Interesting to see it now, before they come out, I'd only seen photos of when they are out - stunning. Never been though.
