Hope you had a good holiday, GWRS.

Love water melon, but OH doesn't.

We had a chicken stir fry, at last it was fine enough (but a bit chilly!) to eat outside. Nothing we want to watch either. Been chatting, think we'll go to bed soon.

Maybe the children wanted to be together, Obelixx, or maybe they have other family members and friends coming to stay in the other rooms. But what a coincidence to meet them!

Been making bread and then marinating chicken for the bring and share lunch we are going to tomorrow.

Morning all.
Richard III last night was really good. www.anticdisposition.co.uk/tour/about-the-tour.html
I was glad I took my winter coat, no rain but it was chilly. We ate in a village restaurant first and met another English couple, very nice, sitting at the table next to us. An English woman and a French man ran the restaurant, very lively and friendly. We had fish and chips which they do every Friday. I rarely eat it as I find batter and chips too much, but it was very good and I had a salad as well. The village was pretty and had a huge Abbey church. Saint Avit Senieur.
The play was on the raised grass bit along the side of the Abbey in above photo. Still can't get photos to go under the print.

Can't get black treacle in France.  Couldn't even get golden syrup before last year.

Gala is another one that might be suitable, I like them, sweet and crisp.

This tells you all about Pink Lady http://www.gardenfocused.co.uk/fruitarticles/apples/variety-pink-lady.php  It isn't a breed in it's own right, interesting article. Sounds as though Fiesta would be suitable. I have never grown them though.

No, PP, I'm short but try standing on a steep slope on the side of a mountain covered in icy snow and looking down on people in the village below who look like ants  

I hope we can meet up then, Dove.

Lyn, you exercise all the time in your garden.

Dacha, did you mean Chamonix? The first time I went skiing I thought I would be good at it, as I rode horses I thought my balance would be good, but I hadn't reckoned on the sheer terror of heights! I was useless, trying to cling on to the mountain with my bottom

Feel sorry for all those on hols in the Dordogne, another grey cool day with the odd shower.

I hope it warms up, we are going to see an outdoor performance of Richard III this evening. Restaurant first, would have been nice to eat outside.

I hope the Norfolk weather is OK the middle two weeks of September. Dove, will you be in Norfolk the third week?
