Joyce - no, it's dry sherry which I don't like but it's good for cooking.
Pat - we always have cotton sheets but change the weight of the duvet to non, spring or autumn weights and sometimes a patchwork quilt depending on season and temps.
Chicky - I guess offers will depend on her choice of subject. What does she want to study?
We are just back from walking the dogs. Cold and grey turned into deceptively warm and sunny so didn't even get through the gate before needing to remove jackets and scarves. Lovely walk round the neighbouring lanes and fields. No potatoes or sugar beet here, just pastures and sweetcorn for fodder so far but some well tended and productive looking veggie plots in gardens.
Lunch next, then wardrobe sorting. The pile of cartons is slowly diminishing and OH found my missing spices used as ballast in teh otherwise heavy jams and chutney carton. That's a relief as I've seen no cardamom or Sechuan peppercorns or tamarind and so on here yet and we've done 3 big and 2 smaller SMs. Markets used to be a good source in Belgium but the reputed biggest and best is at Challans, the other side of La Roche, and we've not yet had time to go and explore it.
