Welcome back Hosta.

Ooh Topbird, we must visit that nursery when we have our cottage. But of a drive but quite do-able. Cottage is south west of Norwich.

I've spent most of the afternoon cutting back stuff in the long border. Been a nice day.

Gosh, marrying Andy Murray would be a nightmare for me! Don't find him attractive at all.

I expect it was old and dying so it crawled in there as it seemed a suitable place, Lyn.

Why does Verdun always think of food?  Oh, not quite true he thinks of plants too.

What a wonderful story Birdyboots, I felt quite emotional reading it.

That was weird, Treehugger.

Snap DD! I'm just back from the village Memorial service too. Ours was at 11.30 followed by refreshments in the Mairie. Not many names on the list as our village is so small.

So sorry to hear about your dog, Pam. Glad you are getting another, not a replacement but a new friend.

Like Verdun I love Lidl chocolate marzipan bars. They haven't had them in for a bit but I need to go on a diet.

Talking of rude names, the French can't believe that we have Cul de Sacs, they think it's very rude. Cul, according to Google Translate, means ass - not the donkey sort! But when used as a swear word in French it's very rude, a bit like the F word. Sac just means bag so it doesn't really make sense.

Evening all. We are back in France now. The weather here has been lovely, but now it's due to get colder. It poured in England, but I didn't really mind, I love England. The English are much smilier than the French.

Just seen I missed Runnybeak's birthday yesterday. Hope you had a lovely day RB.

Welcome back Edd.

Must go and do something about something to eat. Also must go on a diet, always eat too much in England. Anyone know of a really fast and easy diet?

Morning all. Leaving Eastbourne and OH's family this morning. Staying with friends tonight, home tomorrow. France has been warm and sunny.

Been watching Downton and the Strictly results with OH's daughter and SIL. I love Downton. It's beautifully presented with a great cast and all the characters are so human whether upstairs or downstairs. It's not all about snobbism and looking down on the servants. It's fictional history and interesting to see that part of life in the past and how it changes and goes through the war and afterwards. There is selfishness but also a lot of sympathy and kindness.

I didn't see Countryfile but the Vaughan Williams Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis is one of my favourite pieces and brings back memories of my first OH.
