Take away Chinese for dinner here as we got back from our week in the Vendée too late to shop and cook. It was bad apart from the Peking duck but I knew it would be. Last night's meal in Avrillé was pretty bad too - a first for us in France - so I'm really looking forward to proper home cooked leg of lamb tomorrow. I've already fished it out of the freezer to thaw.
Such shocking news from Nice but the French media reports I saw indicate he was a suicidal loner who decided to take people with him - like that Lufthansa pilot. Doesn't help the victims or their families to deal with it any better though.
Been watching UK political developments with great interest. Upon the appointment of Boris to the foreign office, a former Belgian PM said it was good to see the British haven't lost their sense of humour. Clever move either way.
Got home to find Possum hadn't watered my pots as well as they needed but only one plant looks really dodgy. Huge mole hills in the lawn for OH to play with tomorrow and grass to cut, of course. I find pruning/hacking therapeutic too so will go and check the roses and the wisteria which is probably ready for its summer haircut.
Haven't had time to read back a whole week but I trust all the sickies are off the sofa now and feeling better.
