Flo, my mum's favourite topics were sex, politics and religion! My sister, mum and I had many an interesting conversation leaning against the Aga in the kitchen when we were young. But you meant not at work.
Bunny, don't go for a watermill in France! Our first French house was a watermill, damp and cold and the garden flooded. Then there was a drought, not enough rain for four years and the river went smelly. Our shoes used to grow grey fur (mould) Bought it because it was very pretty, but it was totally impractical with 4 children. Also it was very cheap, £ was high against franc and French house prices incredibly cheap compared with English nearly 30 years ago.
