Morning all.

I enjoyed the Michael Portillo UK railway journeys. He's doing the USA now, but I haven't managed to watch any of them. Must be on earlier as it's when I'm cooking.

Going to friends south of Bergerac for lunch today, bit of a drive, but I'm picking up another friend on the way.

Not in Dordogne! Faience tiles are earthenware, carrelage is on the walls and dallage is on the floors. Tuiles are the same, on the roof.

A piano is a range cooker.

Bedtime, nighties.

At least you were allowed to go to a nightclub. I wasn't!  I had to be back by 9pm and that was from the church youth club! Once I was allowed out to a party, when I was 16, until midnight, because the girl's mother was a friend of my mother. When Dad came to fetch my sister and me I was kissing a boy under the dining room table - but he didn't see! Things changed somewhat when I went to London aged 18 to start nurse training.

What is your weather like? (2)

I'm sorry you aren't feeling well, Dove. It's a really horrid virus.

Just seen our weather forecast, rain and gales. Going to lunch with friends tomorrow, south of Bergerac so a bit of a drive. Hope the weather isn't too awful.
