Busy weekend here too and I slept 10 hours last night then stayed in bed to finish my book and cuddle Cosmos. It's colder today and he is very snuggly.
Scientists loved their Dartmouth pie and the Texan Camembert (recipe from a Texan friend) I did for nibbles with the apéro and the puds and then we headed off for a long walk on the beach at La Tranche-sur-Mer (Slice-On-Sea) which is next to La Faute-sur-Mer (Mistake-on-Seaà and going via Moutiers-les-Maufaits (the Baldly Made) so they could see the wonderful medieval Halles/covered market and meeting place.
Sun's coming out now so I'm off to sow some seeds.
Busy - horrendous for you. Hope you and the house heal quickly and you get the help you need.
Pat - we get birds down our chimneys too but we just banish the dogs, close the door and open the windows and then open the fire door so they can fly out. Far too panicked to let themselves be caught and helped out.
Ian - we had cows eating the tops of our holly hedge till we fixed it by putting up an almost transparent fence cut from lengths of wire mesh builders use for concrete. Just attached it to the barbed wire fence and made sure it was my shoulder height so they couldn't get their necks over. Cheap and indestructible.
Chicky - glad your pa's getting better. Enjoy your garden club talk.
Have a good day all, especially those visiting grandkids or needing a hug.
