Bread not ready for a thick slice yet, debs. Having a second rise in the tin before it goes in the oven.


Joyce, Garden Open on 9th July, so no panic yet  Last year was too stressful when open early May. But I'm doing a charity cream tea for church on 10th June, so I want to deal with the worst of it before then.


Have been doing support for the broad beans and tying up tomatoes and a clematis. Then SIL came round on his way to a local town for his work. He demonstrates medical equipment in hospitals.

Hosta has reminded me - what is a Bing Bong and a TV Boofer? Never heard of them

Morning all.
Sorry about Harry cat, Topbird. Think you mentioned he was poorly. Is he elderly?


Nice sunny day, garden has grown like mad since I've been away on Granny duties, weeds a foot tall. Must get out there and do something about it, but waiting for washing machine to finish. Waiting for bread to rise too, but that can be left for a bit. OH forgot to buy any. Had fruit malt loaf from England, was in the freezer, for brekkies

Warm and sunny here in Dordogne. Came back from son's last night. Really need to get into the garden, everything has grown so much since Sunday.


Obelixx, you asked about the restaurant on May's thread. I was in Burgundy (Bourgogne), not round here. The restaurant is in Joigny. There is a 2 Michelin star one, but it wasn't that as the cheapest menu is 78€. It was the one owned by his sister, 30€ for 3 course lunch with a glass of wine and coffee included. It was very good and there were a lot of people for a Thursday lunchtime. There was an outdoor terrace but we sat inside because of baby Elise. It's by the river that runs along the town.


I tried to post a photo, but it won't post. I'll probably have to wait until after 11pm. When you have good Internet photos post easily on this new site, but when you don't then I wish we had the old site back.

My last post was only yesterday morning and there was a glitch so I couldn't get on this morning but nor could any of you. Has it been tipping with rain or something? I've just read back pages.


I was so sad to read Karen's post, what an awful thing to discover. Sending hugs. I am feeling rather shocked too that cancer can spread like that with no symptoms, frightening.


Seems trivial to say now that RB and LB aren't the only ones allowed to drool over a certain sexy man. What about me and SGL? Sure there were others too!


There were other things I was going to say as I read back but they've gone out of my head now.


Arrived home at 8pm after a 5 hr drive, lots of lorries on the motorway. Son and DIL took me out to a lovely restaurant for lunch, to say thank you. Baby Elise slept through it in her carry cot.

Son's curtains will wait as he hasn't put up the rail yet. So I weeded son's flower bed, then we went to a GC and I bought some plants for it, which I have planted.


It was French Mother's Day on Sunday so tomorrow Son is taking me and DIL to a restaurant for lunch, the posh one he went to with his clients, tomorrow before I go home. Little GDs will be at school and playgroup, we'll take baby Elise.

Morning all. Happy holiday to Yvie, but she's probably left.


Sun is shining but it's not too hot. Would like to tackle son's creeping buttercups in his flower beds but he would like me to hem some curtains. He has the rest of the week off and I will go home tomorrow.

Morning all.


Looks a nice day, sun but not too hot.


Last night I watched some of a Lethal Weapon series in French because that's what son was watching.


Have son's curtains to hem today and he has creeping buttercups in his flower beds, don't know if I'll get around to that.
