Morning all.


Having my hair cut too, but in the village.


How's your cold Dove? Must be better as you are planning on going out. What gallery is that?


Very windy last night, and it rained, but the sun has come out now.

Plumber came, late, but in time for us to go out to lunch. Enjoyed lunch, beef stew and dumplings, veg, then Pavlova. Went for a walk afterwards, gets dark so early. Being north of Dordogne darkness arrives half an hour earlier, at least, in Norfolk, then there is the hour's time change so it's 1 1/2 less daylight time in Norfolk compared with Dordogne.

Morning all.


Two hours gentle gardening sounds like progress, punkdoc, not long ago you were in bed.


I don't make Christmas cake or pudding anymore, did when the family lived at home. I just buy a small pudding at the church Christmas fair.


Dove said "get my ears lowered". Are you having plastic surgery Dove?


We arrived at our Norfolk cottage last night, via Sainsbury's. The boiler was a bit slow to start, but it did eventually so we had heating and hot water, but this morning it packed up. Waiting for the boiler man, said he was coming at 10am but he's now late. We are going out to lunch with friends at midday.

Strictly is back!

I had thought that Aston would win. I like Gemma, probably because of her smile, but I'm sure she won't win. I think AB is the most likely, but Davood has improved so much he may have a chance.

Morning all.


Off to Norfolk at lunchtime. Housesitter rang yesterday to check time.


Been worried about my cat. She was a feral cat but has got to trust me, more or less, over the years and now comes in at night to sleep in the winter. There has been a stray feral cat, very nervous, who has been stealing her food. 2 days ago he attacked my cat, terrible screaming and yowling, I chased him away but my cat disappeared and hasn't been in at night. Just when we are going away. But my cat was sitting on my car in the garage this morning so that's a relief.

Been shopping. Now have pressies for 7 grandchildren, 4 to go but 2 of those I will have to order from Amazon.


Off to Norfolk tomorrow. Sorry about your cold, Dove, mine is almost gone apart from the usual residual cough.

Strictly is back!

I thought Jonny was looking tired too. But he can be proud of himself to get so far, that would be a good result even if he weren't handicapped.


I miss Len and Brucie too. I think some of the music for the ballroom dances is too modern.

Morning all. Happy holiday Hosta.


We are off to town to make a start on Christmas shopping for grandchildren.  Scared the things I want will have gone by the time we come back from Norfolk.

The rainforest and reef sounded wonderful, I hope you enjoy Brisbane too, Chicky.


Liked that, RG, of course dogs have souls, no one has a more soulfull expression than a dog.


Don't worry Wonky! Was a small church with heating and my cold is on the way out. How is yours? Those boots sound great. I always put insoles in mine.


Been glued to the TV this evening, Strictly, Blue Planet and Howard's End.
