Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Good rather later than morning! We had a smooth journey.

Have managed to do two supermarket shops :D one for ‘breakfast’ en route and another more general one in town. I am determined to cook some nice things... but not tonight! Construction cooking for dinner. Currently eating ketchup Monster Munch :shock:

Very wet here, but it’s just stopped raining. This must have been ongoing as here are some very soggy fields (and quite clean sheep)!

Grateful the internet is working. It only took about an hour of crossness and OH on a ladder in the rain to sort it out!

good morning, all.
i feel a hot cross bun baking mode coming on but i don't think there's any mixed peel in the cupboard so they'll just have to be a little disappointing.
i'll let the machine take the strain but take the praise (if there is any).

as my favourite flavoured soap is no longer made and is only available at horrendous prices on eBay i thought i'd have a go at making some. the perfume is not there yet but as i have no desire to use palm oil i may have to put up with 'not quite'. i will need to buy some other perfume oils to add in to the next batch to try to get a closer match but that may have to wait a while - there'll have to be a fair amount of hand washing before we need any more soap - and i thought i'd made a small batch!
it was an interesting exercise which produced a reaction that looked like i'd filled the moulds with squirty foam. from what i've read it's caused by the lye solution being too hot for the oils - i'll leave it a bit longer next time. it subsided and the soap solidified so i don't think i'll try re-batching it.
the bars need to sit around for a few weeks before they can be used. it seems it'll lather well so i'm quite pleased with my first effort.
if roger and gallet would start making it again i wouldn't have to resort to these measures!
(back again -i got distracted but at least it's still morning).
have a good, good friday, everyone.

Good noon

Which Roger & Gallet was it? I think you did tell me and I forgot. My parents liked the sandal wood, and Mum liked oeillet mignardise (carnation), as it grew scarcer it was a good thing to take for presents as much easier to source in London than in Hampshire; Savory & Moore on Bond Street always had the full range and after they closed John Bell & Croyden on Wigmore Street were good (they are still there, I think they are now the flagship of Lloyd's but still very much a Posh Shop)
Pouring with rain here so getting on with admin stuff which I shoudl do instead of going out which I'd prefer
Have a good afternoon everyone

It was very wet until about, well I don't know, really. As we drove back from just outside Mayenne we passed into and out of various rainstorms en route, even thought it's only about 30km away. This is the norm round here though. It's sunny here right now.

Holiday not going well as husband is very unwell - chest thing still - he had antibiotics again last week but they don't seem to have worked. I am very worried about him. He struggles to breathe after walking up the stairs. We may have to go home. He's in bed at the moment. The plan is for him to stay there until Sunday, and then see how he feels. It's at times like these that I really wish I could drive.

He doesn't want to see anyone in France (where we are.) I imagine it would be a huge, stressful palaver. Of course if it gets worse, he will have to. We'll have to play it by ear. At the moment it's only exertion that causes breathlessness, although he said he had a few panicky moments in the night. He has inhalers.

Good morning, all.
Drier than the forecast last night said it would be but then I think they're trying to up the optimism by forecasting rain when its, really, going to be sunny.
I didn't make hot cross buns - I did a bit of drain clearing instead and didn't succeed at that, either. I think it may be blocked by soil having accumulated in the pipe. my partner is going to attack it with the pressure washer - now that I've done the top part with a mug, buckets of water and a bamboo stick. Thank goodness we have a surfiet of soap (oeillet mignardise, sue, I've asked them to bring it back but they don't seem to want to know!)
We're off for a walk in a coup!e of hours (low tide) and I need some white emulsion so may make a detour on the way back.
Coffee's here.
Have a great day, everyone.

Afternoon.
Managed to keep husband in bed until about 2. I’ve had a lot of exercise :) will try to send him back again shortly.

Things feel less panicky today. I think he might have a cold on top of chronic bronchitis. He’s been sneezing a lot.

Will see go it goes.
Internet is a bit temperamental and it may run out so I am going to do some photography bookwork/reading this afternoon. I did a lot of housework this morning...
It’s not rained yet today!!!!

Herbi ... as I said before, make him get it checked.

Dippy eggs and toasty soldiers this morning ... Roast lamb and pommes dauphinoise later when MIL arrives ... I suppose I'd better get up ...

Have a lovely day folks ... hope the drain doesn't take too much sorting Scully. :D

Good morning! There is some sun and no rain right now. In fact it's quite cheerfully bright. It didn't rain until about 5pm yesterday :shock: I strolled down to see our lovely (English) neighbours (in the drizzle. I am sure we have lovely French ones too, but my French isn't quite up to it. I did manage to crack a joke in French and get a laugh from our direct neighbour, the farmer, yesterday though :D ) Apparently it's been a horribly wet winter here. Very unpleasant for the farmers and small holders who feel like they've been drowning in mud... and sh*t, according to the neighbours, as they've had to keep the animals inside which means a lot of mucking out.

Suffs, Husband saw a doctor in Germany the week before last who gave him antibiotics and told him to keep on taking his inhalers. He must definitely see someone again asap, question is how soon is that and which coounty (UK or France.) I am a bit fed up/down. If I could go out that might help, but it's hard to enjoy oneself when he's in this state. I did a lot of housework yesterday... which made me rather depressed about the state of the house. There's a lot of damp. But there are no fewer spiders and dead hornets.

Anyway. I'll try and do some more writing today. I have several stories to finish and I am (contrary to my instincts) toying with a very fledgling idea of a children's book. Not sure my heart's in it, but might give it a go. Will go for a stroll with my camera shortly. I saw some free range lambs (and their mothers) out of my kitchen window yesterday, so could hunt some down... so to speak. I'd love to go wandering around Raymond's farm with my camera, as I have a weird (photographic) interest in farm implements, but not sure I dare ask (actually fairly sure I daren't ask!)

Sorry for such a long, wibbling Good Morning. This happens when I have no one to talk to!

Happy Easter everyone!

Will enjoy treading the what have you eaten today page. If I had flour i'd have made a pie, but I think it's going to be leak and mushroom galettes with creme fraiche. And possibly emmental, but that might be gilding the lily.

good morning, all.
sunny earlier now it's overcast and we're waiting for the rain to start. 'they' are promising us high south easterly winds in an hour or so.
reiterating sue's hope, herbi, hope the holiday, for you, isn't too stressful.
would cutting out dairy products help your partner? i know opera singers etc reduce theirs when getting ready for a performance - they say that it cuts down on mucus production - but i don't know if that's a good or bad thing for bronchitis.
having not made hot cross buns i think i can safely say that i won't be having any this easter (if i don't make any today). i think my yeast is pleading old age.
i know how it feels.
our walk on the beach, yesterday, was not followed by a coffee. the hoards are down for the holiday and it was obvious, from the far side of the beach, that both venues were full. i did bring a blade of kelp back to dry - for eating not weather forecasting, and also saw a young couple carrying a clear bucket half full of mussels back from the far end of lushington. when we looked on the rocks there were some really big ones - we haven't seen such big ones for ages - definitely edible size (if you are that way inclined).
coffee is about to arrive.
have a good afternoon, everyone.

Morning. Quite bright here and not raining, yet :)

Scully I find that dairy makes catarrh worse too, but it think OH's issues are more to do with inflamed bits. Bronchioles, I suppose...?! He is still sounding like a TARDIS, and struggles with the stairs, but says he feels a bit better, so I suspect this was a cold on top of chronic bronchitis. He wants to go for a drive in the car, which I suppose is ok as it only involves him walking to it and getting in in terms of lung usage. Unless he starts singing along to music... There's a vide grenier in a local village. We might drive there and I can stick him in a tabac. Not sure though. If we were at home I'd probably say no.

Have a warm and dry Easter Monday everyone :lol: :hug:

good morning, all.
wet and windy. the beeb says it's a light breeze but i don't think they've checked with the locals.
i don't think we'll be going to the beach today even though it'll be quite sheltered from the wind.
the useless (or maybe not) bit of information for today, care of woman's hour, is that all circus elephants have to be spoken to in french (in the same way that all air traffic controllers use english) - who knew‽‽ - well lots of people i suppose but it's news to me.
glad he's feeling a little better - lots of garlic for the infection, lots of turmeric for the inflammation - good excuse for eating lots of indian food - not that you'll find much en france.
if this weather continues i fancy watching an old film on the box.
have a great day, everyone.

You do have to be careful with turmeric though. It's not a good thing if you have blood pressure problems. My best chum collapsed last year with low blood pressure and the hospital said it was because she'd been taking turmeric supplements.

how much turmeric was in her supplements?
i have always had low blood pressure and have been taking turmeric powder for nearly a year with no effect other than the desired anti-inflammatory one.

I bought my mother some turmeric and there as something in the possible contraindications that made me tell (hum yes, rather than suggest) her to ask the doctor before she takes it. Not sure if it was the blood pressure one. She has so many medications and medications to counteract the side effects of medications, it's a bit of a minefield.

I have no idea Scully but she is a very clever girl and really looks after herself. It's the first time she's ever had a bad reaction to any of her supplements as far as I can rememember.

Maybe one of these Herbi? Is your mum on blood thinners?

i warm up some olive oil, grind a whole load of black pepper in (the effect is meant to be enhanced by taking it with piperine) stir it over a gentle heat and mix in as much powdered turmeric as possible - until it sort of holds together but just starts falling into a powdery mass. i then take about a half teaspoonful once or twice a day with a drink - it goes down easier with a warm drink.
i started by making it into a turmeric latte but wasn't over enamoured with it - i preferred to get the ordeal over and then wash it down with a drink. i do find that beetroot juice washes it down well! it seemed a far cheaper way than to do it with 'supplements' that also contain anti-caking agents and other stuff.

good morning, all.
a little sun and birdsong at the moment although 'they' say it won't last all day.
a cat has woken up again and decided that my wrists could do with warming and that my skills at touch typing could be improved by blocking my view of the keyboard. i have decided that she could be rolled out of the way.
my partner is 'playing' with Skype at the moment - he hasn't used it for years and has a conference call this afternoon. since it's been taken over by microsoft it has layers of complexity that weren't there, or necessary, before - they may not be necessary still.
the cat is resisting rolling.
i need coffee. did i mention that i'd got permanent stainless steel filters for my aeropress? the reviews said that the coffee tastes better and they're right - they also said that is was more of a fiddle to eject the disc of used grounds than with a paper one although i wouldn't really agree with that. if you leave emptying the grounds until after you've drunk the coffee the filter can be lifted off and the 'disc' stays together to be ejected into the compost as normal.
i still need a cup of coffee.
the cat is still on my wrists.
the sun has gone in.

good morning, all.
sort of overcast but bright - or it might just be getting lighter. it may have stopped raining for the day.
we have decided to go for a walk as soon as i get back from the farm - there's quite a low tide.
i spent most of yesterday afternoon folding paper pots and potting up some of the chilli seedlings. hopefully, the radio times is up to the job. i now have to find somewhere to put them all.
yesterdays Skype call has initiated a fortnightly call with a subgroup and a monthly call with the big group - i think he'll be quite a lot better at Skype before long.
have a grand day, everyone.

Wow, I think it looks great - and the prices seem quite in keeping with the times even if some purses might groan!

On Monday my third lunch of the 4 day holiday was at a pub/hotel searched out by my friend who lives in Chinnor. She is by no means a foodie but thought I would like the place. The desserts were all over £6, indeed my pavlova with summer fruits was £6.85 :shock: ... and I doubt it was very 'home-made' ... :rolleyes: :td: I wasn't impressed :(

Good morning all :D

Rain has given way to blue skies, white fluffies and sunshine ... but a brisk wind and a nippy 11C out there and as I've had a lazy morning and had a late shower and my hair is still wet I've come back indoors before I 'catch a chill' ... I may try to find some Commonwealth Games on the telly.

Have a good day folks :D

good morning, all.
bright earlier, still bright but slightly more overcast although no way dull - but a bit nippy.
so, my disguise fooled you, huh? - never trust anyone!
i left the farm a little early yesterday and one of the girls asked me why. i said it was because i was going for a walk on the beach. she asked me what the name of my dog was.
what dog?
the one you're taking to the beach.
i haven't got a dog.
then why are you going to the beach.
for a walk.
well you must have a dog then, what's he called?
ok, it's -----, although he's not really a dog, he's my partner.
oh - and you're not taking your dog?
she looked at me as if i was strange.

off to paint a pantry in a little while.
have a lovely day, everyone.

Scully ... we have an imaginary dog ... he's a Border terrier and his name is Barnsley ... OH takes him for a walk some evenings ... I remind him to put a plastic bag in his pocket :oops: :lol:

He's the least trouble of any of the many dogs I've ever had :D

gosh, i thought that was a picture of a canal with a jetty.
there were notices put up on the bridge over the stream at the beach, yesterday, informing people of the water quality in the flooding stream (it was up to the bottom of the footbridge) and not to play in it etc.
the stream is joined by another taking the water from the treatment plant further up the valley. when there is too much water run off there isn't always capacity for treatment - good job we've got the sea to cope with it all - huh‽‽

so, the local is within walking distance !
