Floss is so lovely. Sometimes I wish I could have another Border Collie, so intelligent and affectionate, but OH says we travel too much by plane now between England and France.

One of the worst bits was that I slipped on the wet tiles in the hall and fell heavily onto the wooden staircase. Very bruised and sore. No time to see the doc as sorting out the flood.

Was supposed to be sun today but it's cloudy.

My mother loved the sea and sailing, but I like the countryside and horses. We are about 3 hours from a beach here in mid Dordogne.

My elderly mare eats wooden fencing and hedges. That's why I have electric fencing and suggested it to Iain. Only thing that works.

Morning all.
Thanks Joyce, they are improving, but still taking painkillers and waking up at night. A man from a cleaning firm is coming this morning to do an estimate and say what needs doing.

Lovely to see more of your garden, Fairy, great use of foliage.

I liked Sheridan Smith too. Wasn't she the actress who was Cilla Black in a film about Cilla? She was brilliant in that.

An electric wire on the fence might help. But you'd need to buy the box and the battery, bit pricey.

Thanks for the sympathy about the flood. My bruises get a bit better each day. Stuff is drying. Found a dehumidifier rental place and insurance says they will pay.

My garden is getting rather messy and autumnal, petunias in pots are over but the begonias are still OK. There is still some colour from dahlias, salvias and Michaelmas daisies etc.

Flexible pipe under the basin burst in the night. Flooded the bathroom, landing, next door bedroom and the family room below. Trying to sort out insurance and dehumidifiers.
