HELLO FORKERS!

I have mice, they just happen to live in the countryside. When we first came here in 1990 they used to come indoors, House hadn't been lived in for 6 years (by humans). They soon changed their minds and went back outside! Can you imagine a tiny weeny little mousey wousey eating a great big human? They eat the occasional strawberry and some pods of peas and once all my romanesco broccoli disappeared, mouse droppings were left behind, but nothing really serious.

Been to see baby GS and took son out to lunch. But baby was very tired and sleepy today. He'd had his first bath and howled from the moment his clothes were removed!

KEF, that's what my daughter's daughter calls me! My mother was Granny Annie before she died.

I always enjoy lunch, my downfall!

Morning all. Glad you liked photo. Taking son out to lunch today, says he's only had sandwiches since Thursday. Seems a bit unfair on DIL but hospital is serving her proper meals and she's not allowed out yet (and doesn't want to).

May plant out tomatoes later.

Plants are so important to Verdun!  I wondered if he'd notice some time ago, but no, just plants! But then he is a man I bet if my DIL had produced a wild swan with leaves he's have noticed!!

The maternity unit in local hospital is brand new and sparkling clean, mothers have single rooms, lots of helpful staff too. I was impressed with the 3 other French hospitals I've seen for my other grandchildren. The one in Poitiers was especially good.

Good news about son in law, Dove.

Little Edward is so sweet. He opened his eyes and made little noises. Mum and Dad are very tired, it was a long labour. Mum and baby will stay in hospital for about 4 days, in France they like the milk to come in before letting them out.

No gardening done and now it's raining.
