Worked for me, someone who went to my old school had posted, didn't know her but she mentioned a girl in my younger sister's class.

Wind and rain eased off this afternoon so helped son to rake leaves then we went for a walk while little granddaughters were having their sleep.


Love lamb shanks and a brandy without ice sounds most welcome.

It's been very windy today, strong gusts and some rain. I hope it's better for my drive home tomorrow.


I'm not scared of mice, it's just that this one is so noisy. I've emptied the bin, it was fully of rustly paper, the remains of a baguette and pistachio nut shells. Mouse was having a field day.


Cat is still asleep on the bed.

Morning all. I'm staying with son, near Auxerre on the edge of Burgundy. Really strong winds here and rain this morning.


Slept badly at son's for the 2nd night. There is a mouse in my room. Friday night I heard it and thought there was a small animal in the ceiling but last night I saw it. It's very active between 4 and 6am. It went in the bin, which has nut shells in it so I put the bin outside the door, but it came bac under the door. Then the granddaughters woke up at 7am, noisy. I've just let their cat into my room but he's not interested in mice, too lazy. He's dozing on the bed leaning against my legs.

In the 60s I liked Dixon of Dock Green, Dr. Finlay's Casebook and Steptoe and Son on TV. I was still at school so needed parents' permission. Don't think I would have got away with Steptoe if my rather strict father had seen it. In '69 went off to London to train as a nurse and never seemed to have time to watch TV. Evening duties and social life.

I once went to our local French SPA to ask about adopting a rescue dog. They said all their dogs were big and strong and most were there because they kept running away from home and my place wouldn't do because it's not fenced. They said I needed a trainable puppy. So I found Tigger, 8 weeks, nearly 14 years ago. I already had a female Border Collie cross. My dogs have always been Border Collies. Anyway, OH really doesn't want one, not even a little one.

Fence is repaired and horses are back where they should be. Electric fence working.


Water here is very hard, on limestone.


At the moment my cat is in disgrace, she keeps digging up my pots and I've run out of anti-cat stuff, which doesn't work very well anyway. She keeps walking all over my car and leaving muddy footprints on it. Miss my dog, he never destroyed the garden. OH doesn't want another dog, he says we come and go too much nowadays and a dog might outlive him. Thing is, I don't want any dog, I want a replica of my Tigger.
