Morning all. Not a lot of sleep last night - awake till 5 struggling with churning brain and occasional cramps. Zombie mode today but at least it's bright and sunny for when I do wake up properly.
I put the sprinkler on the front grass last night - the only bit that looks like grass and not hay - so I could plant my new autumn and spring crocuses in it. OH will be thrilled as that means the mowing ban will be extended. He's on a shopping mission today with a huge list for her and me - she wants clothes and household supplies. I want new collars for the dogs, some particular light fittings I haven't found here, sherry and my NZ Nobilo wine with screw caps to tide me over while I figure out French stuff.
We never did get in to the whole business of needing to know terroir/grape varieties/weather conditions/socks worn when treading grapes/wood used for maturing barrels palaver so have little experience with 99.9% of French wines. We like our wine consistent and reliable from one year to the next so have a lot of "research" to do. That'll be fun..
Liri - a month on Scotland - pack several layers of thermals and enjoy!
Pat - sounds like you're coping well.
I need more coffee.
