Hello all, just been reading back. Felt pleased that some of you remembered my messy pond!
I'm at son's, 5 hours from home, but it took longer than 5 hours because of heavy traffic. Our bank holiday was Ascension Day which was Thursday so people take Friday off too and have a long weekend. Sunday afternoon is when they all go back home.
Anyway, son rang as he had to go to work today and has an important business dinner tonight. Baby arrived late so DIL is still in hospital, it's 4 days here. He thought her mother would come to look after their 2 little daughters and take them to nursery school but she was going away for the weekend and isn't back until Tuesday. So here I am, near Auxerre on the edge of Burgandy.
I had a good cuddle of baby Elise in hospital yesterday, she was wide awake taking everything in, but not crying. A little cutie. Her sisters were overexcited. They cooled down in the paddling pool when we got back to son's house. Still very hot here. I'll take them back to the hospital after nursery school.
