Thanks for letting us know.
Floppy day here. Possum threw a major pout yesterday. Finally surfaced from bed and shower - but not dressed to go out - at 1:30pm and then had a bout of pouting when we said we were not prepared to schlepp up to Nantes for half a day. Did not like the idea of a video project in one of the local fishing villages. Too boring. Eventually decided to go to the SM in Olonne for more mangoes to rescue the volcanic chutney and she cam etoo. Being a bit naughty, I took the scenic coastal route and out came the camera. Snap happy.
Shopping done we did a tour by car and on foot of the yacht basin (Vendée Globe still going on for late returners) and the port and the lighthouses and the beach with loons swimming and the pedestrian shopping streets etc et and finished with sunset from the yacht basin at Bourgenay. A very good excursion for exploring and filming. I have not yet said "Told you so".
Unfortunately, whilst filming in the shopping streets her eye alighted on a specialty macaron and choc shop and she tripped over an unseen kerb. Ankle sprain. Lots of TLC and rest and therapeutic kitten cuddling so she'll be fit for Nantes tomorrow.
Bit grey and mis here with some drizzle but set to clear up. I'm going to try and make a cherry meringue tart in the combi oven, oil my beech worktop again (very thirsty) and finish that chutney. Slow roast belly pork for dinner and sowing broad beans and sweet peas if I have time. By the time they germinate I should have a safe space outside for them under cloches..
I hope your weather is fit for your plans for today and if not, hope you can stay tucked up and warm and well. Hugs to all who need a bit of comfort for sorrows or lurgies.
