My Bristol Garden in 2015

Good morning Marion. You look lovely and smiley.

I have daughter, SIL and 2 grandchildren here. They are moving house, will be a lot nearer me. Moving in on Wednesday, but have moved out of old house.

Morning all. Been busy with daughter and family, lots of chatting.

Wondered where you were, Womble.

Favourite native mammal?

Can't say that bats are my favourites. This house was full of them when we moved here as it hadn't been lived in for 6 years. They are quite messy, pooing and weeing from the ceiling! Thank God most have moved to the garage now. Wasn't a garage at first, we built it. But often my car's windscreen needs washing before driving.

Good heavens, I wouldn't get that far, I would have been  before the end of the first bottle.

Haven't been to Galway. Been to Dingle and Wicklow. I hope you have a lovely time Liri.

It's my birthday

Mine is the 16th, Verdun. Parents lived on a houseboat on the Thames so I was born near my grandparents, Ipswich. They had to sell the boat in case I fell in the river!

Where are you going in Ireland, Liri? I have some happy memories of riding holidays.

Been busy since grandchildren arrived. Daughter is putting them to bed, late but it's the holidays.

It's my birthday

Happy Birthday Caroline, have a lovely day.

I thought Verdun's birthday was the same month as mine - September.

Forgot GW and Beechgrove this morning, never watch TV on Sunday mornings and daughter's MIL turned up with the grandchildren. Daughter had asked her to come this afternoon but MIL wanted to get back to Bordeaux before the holiday traffic got bad.

I have smilies and avatars, is that because I use a laptop?

Morning all. Sunny, forecast is for 30°.

Daughter and family are arriving today from North of France. They are moving to 1 hour 20 mins from here. Removal men have some trouble with the lorry and will arrive at new house on Wednesday. I must go and sort out bedrooms.

We ate on the terrace, chicken tandoori, salad and white wine.
