Ooooo such a lot has been going on

Cosmos looks a real cutie.  Great view from the pier, and wonderful French marketplace.  Hope DD's outing went well, and glad that the fresh air/ hacking did Pdoc some good.  Great to hear from Liri and her paintbrush

Spent the day helping OH point the new paving slabs, then off for a walk, kicking autumn leaves as we went.  Then a couple of hours driving with littlest Chicklet ....test coming up this week.  Obviously want her to pass, but not looking forward to the worrying starting all over again.  Best thing about Chicklet being away at Uni is I don't have to worry about her on the roads

Treated myself to the new Aled Jones Christmas album yesterday the Snowman, and love Christmas records December, you understand.  Gave it a twirl in the car just now - the last track is a duet with Terry Wogan......took me by surprise, and ended up driving with tears in my eyes

Oh Fidget - what a worry.  Hope he is ok (now and tomorrow).  So scary how life turns on these split second events.  ((Hugs)) for you both.

Not the same do Frit - mine is for legal beagles.....I'm an imposter, as not a lawyer myself 😳.  Obxx - my occitane hand scrub is very much like sugar and olive oil, just much more pricey ....might consider the alternative recipe when this pot runs out. Painted my nails sparkly pink - courtesy of littlest Chicklet ....covers a multitude of sinsπŸ’…πŸ»πŸ’…πŸ»πŸ’…πŸ»

On a train at the moment .....

Working from home today as I have a posh awards dinner to go to in London this evening, and the logistics get complicated.  Time to dig out the little black dress and sparkly heels, and attempt to disguise my gardeners hands and nails.  Hopefully noone will guess that my free time outfit of choice is wellies and dungarees
