Morning all. looks sunny outside.


Our neighbours and another couple we've met in the village are coming to lunch today.


Have a good day with your son, Dove.


Pat, I wasn't mowing long grass.   We don't have any grass at our cottage, it's a courtyard garden. The grass in France isn't growing yet.

Morning all. I've been awake for ages reading my book in bed, just got up. Must think about what to do with the day but one thing is cook boeuf bourguignon for tomorrow. Neighbours are coming to lunch.

We are having chicken Korma too, but it's a Sainsbury's ready meal. Bought some other bits and pieces to go with it. But first we are going for a proper English beer in the pub.

Thanks both. Much warmer here than I expected. Hire car said 17°, like France yesterday. Daffodils all over the place, lovely.

Hello girls, we've arrived! Flew from Bordeaux to Luton instead of Bergerac to Stansted, just more driving at each end. It's much warmer than I expected. Hire car said 17°. Had light lunch in a pub on the way and went to Sainsbury's. The daffodils on the verges were so pretty.


I'm another who can't grow spring onions, thought it had something to do with France.

Hello all. We've arrived in Norfolk. Flew from Bordeaux to Luton, bit longer in the car each way than Bergerac to Stansted, but not a bad journey. Stopped in a pub for a light lunch on the way and at Sainsbury's to stock up.


I read back but memory has gone so I'all just say I hope the unwell ones will feel better soon and the ones with troubles will soon see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you to all those who wished us a good journey.

I thought it was going to be one hour long this year, but it was only half an hour.


Very early start tomorrow, going to bed in a minute. Nighties.

That was so funny, Hosta


It's been a lovely day, 17° this afternoon, took my pullover off (did have a T shirt underneath). Have done weeding in the veg garden and cut the lavender hedge. Also cleaned the kitchen and washed the floor.


Odd job/log man has done a brilliant job. He's repaired all the electric fences, 4 paddocks in 5 acres, in just 2 days. I've been round and looked at them. Such a relief. I will have to put up some new electric ribbon in a couple of places, I was expecting much more than that.
