Welcome back! Whew, we’ve been busy.
Welcome to October. We’ve had a lovely week with a couple of simply gorgeous days – Thursday was stunning with warm, bright sunshine and a light breeze – good enough to make you think that perhaps the cold, wet weather will hold off indefinitely. And then Saturday came and it rained all day! Quelle Merde! Continue reading
What a lovely, lovely week. We’ve had some gorgeous sunny days with bright blue skies and unseasonably warm temperatures – up to 20C in the middle of the week. I think that’s what is sometimes known as an Indian Summer! Penelope has been taking advantage of the fine weather and has been gardening as if any day now normal weather conditions will prevail. I also was involved but fortunately my tool of choice was a chainsaw (used under relatively close supervision, of course) as I removed an overgrown and misplaced bay tree and the most vicious rose bush known to mankind. Adam and I have also continued our progress on the never-ending garden project which moves slowly closer toward completion. We’ll have a description and photos soon, I promise! Continue reading
Well, it wasn’t quite 27C on Tuesday as predicted by one of our Pilates classmates last week but it was decidedly balmy. We had the remnants of tropical storm Ali busting its way through the British Isles with a fair bit of rain and strong winds drawing in warm weather from the south – warm, wet and windy, in other words, rather like a toddler in nappies.

Autumn seems to be but just around the corner. The mornings have turned decidedly crisper and the two of our trees which do anything colourful have already started displaying their first blushes. Still, someone at Pilates on Friday announced that it was supposed to be 27o Celsius on Tuesday (80 F). That would be nice, but most everyone reckoned she must have been looking at the wrong country. Continue reading
A relatively quiet yet very pleasant week, if any week with a two-year old in residence can ever be considered “quiet”. Very pleasant weather (again) but it is beginning to feel somewhat Autumnal – I’m not sure I’m ready to hunker down for winter yet! Continue reading
Another busy week! A MAD outing, an early Film Night special, the departure of one of our tenants and the annual Village Gardening Show! As well as lots of progress on the never-ending garden project. Oh my goodness, I am certainly not up to this sort of pace. Continue reading
Sorry, but we really are full this time!
Good morning and welcome to, hopefully, another fine day. We’ve had a mixed week weather wise – some sunshine, some drizzle, some clouds, some breeze, some of just about everything apart from hail and snow. No hot, sweltering days though – just normal weather for the time of year. This is what a British summer is all about, never mind all those hot sunny days! Continue reading
Good morning to you all. It’s been another splendid week, not quite so hot and stifling as it has been. And, we even had a tolerable amount of rain which the lawn and garden enjoyed. Too bad we were on a short break to the Norfolk Broads! Continue reading
