Agree with that Dove. Mine are definitely faulty, flat, broad, too big for my height and the soles burn when I stand still for too long. Yet there are so many beautiful shoes for sale that my feet won't fit into, so some people must have nice feet.

What is your weather like? (2)

Do you love them and can you stroke them?

Morning all.


I hope your pain will be a lot less than you expect, Flowers. Sounds horrid. At least the resting up is in winter.


I stubbed the toe next to the little toe a few years ago on a wooden garden chair. Nothing broken, but the nail has grown back thick and deformed, tricky to cut. Hope yours is OK, Dove.


I have a friend from Perth but her second marriage was to a French man so she lives in Dordogne now, but goes to Perth in winter for two months to see her daughters and grandchildren.


More cards to write and mince pies to bake. If there's time this afternoon I could plant some more tulips.


Internet seems to be working this morning.

One last try at posting here, I've come on a few times and as soon as I click on post reply the page disappears taking my post with it.


I've made 82 mince pies, will make some more tomorrow as I promised 100 and we need some for ourselves.


The fencing, Joyce, was only thin metal poles for electric ribbon. To keep the horses off the hay, they are too fat. I will dole it out morning and evening. I also made a runway with fencing to guide the horses past the house and over the drive to their winter paddock. Horses aren't really OH's thing.


I hope punkdoc gets a break from the noise over the weekend. Will it start up again?

Oh good, at last!


Did I tell mention that my brother with the lymphoma has made good progress with the chemo and won't need chemo in January?

I've just been to the Post Office to post Christmas cards, more still to do, and to Leclerc SM as I forgot the wine and oranges for the mulled wine for after the Carol Service on Sunday.

Bit of fencing to do in the winter paddock then horses to go in there, then making of mince pies.


I'll pop back later if Internet is working.

Haven't been able to get here today, rubbish Internet. I wrote a couple of posts that wouldn't send. Lets see if this will.

BL     I heard the end of a report on the radio this evening re a court case in Dordogne......It seemed as though a neighbour was complaining about the noise the frogs were making in the next door pond.


Have you heard anything about it? It seemed a bit extreme going to court,


Less trudging over sodden or frozen ground for you if the horses are nearer the house.


See original post

 I haven't heard of that case, Joyce. My son once rented a house in the Loiret with a pond next door. The frogs were so noisy they had to change bedrooms in the mating season. The pond was a reservoir owned by the local fire brigade.
