Back from dentist son with new, free crown


I think it maybe a little small, Hosta, on seeing the bluetit at the entrance. But isn't it lovely to have an interested tenant!

Wonky, I'm sorry about your job too, I hadn't realised. Hope you find an even better one soon. Hugs.

Morning all.


Saw the NZ fire on TV this morning, horrendous. Also that Vitamin D may help prevent colds, Waitrose is customer friendly (well, I knew that already) and that the C of E is gradually coming round to gay marriages in church. I'm on an ecumenical committee here in France, representing the Anglicans in our bit of Dordogne and I think I was the only one who approved of gay marriages, Jesus didn't discriminate and nor should we.


Going to SM this morning and dentist son this afternoon to have new crown fitted. Though I'm quite fond of my temporary one, it's very comfortable.

It was a lovely sunny day today. Didn't need a coat, don't think it's been like that since before Christmas.

We haven't had pie, we had chicken fried in herby breadcrumbs, chips, courgettes and green beans and OH has gone off to choir practice. I hope there is something suitable on TV. If not I'll read my book The Labyrinth by Kate Mosse, really enjoying it.

Don't think I'd dare! What if the foil unwrapped?


Have planted 3 roses in a very large pot. One of my pots cracked so I took out the two roses in it and planted one of the Gertrude Jekylls that OH gave me for Christmas with them in the big pot he gave me as well. The two other GJs are going in the garden.

Morning all


After all the wind and rain it's a lovely day here, like Joyce's. Should be able to plant the roses that OH gave me for Christmas.


I always wonder that, about washing machine detergent drawers. Never thought about the dishwasher, good tip, must try it.

Thanks. It's Early Sensation, I love it, it's climbed up the remains of the fallen greengage tree.
