Emergency Measures

Emergency Measures are in place. Teddy appears to be suffering a slight New Year’s “hangover”, evident in his quest for a warm spot in the absence of the Rayburn. Any warm place is now subject to sharing.

He can’t have been very comfortable.

Just now, he’s sitting on the kitchen worktop, above the dishwasher – which has just completed the drying cycle. He’s leaning on the kettle at the same time, still a little warm from morning coffee break.

Bare Naked

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home. We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

La Cavalerie. We had been going to stay the night here, there’s both a cheese France Passion (we are in Roquefort country) and a CCP Aire. It’s a lovely little town. However with last night’s warning of tonight’s address from M. Macron… we are covering more ground in expectation of imminent travel restrictions. Just called… Continue reading October 28, 2020 at 12:31PM

Seeing some sensational autumn colours on this drive but finding it hard to capture what with all the bouncing, twisting and turning. Not to mention the crappy IG camera facility. #livereportingfromtheroad #france #autumn2020

    Nice to catch up with your cats again! I wish I had a cat hammock …

    You asked about the magazine format. As a vintage reader of your blogs, I’m afraid I just go straight to the ‘Contents’ sidebar and navigate posts as normal. 🙂

    Very sensible! The main changes, in categorising, are really to support more sensible use of feed readers, and I tend to believe that most people use those now rather than visiting blogs. A prettyfied blog is just a way of snaffling new readers these days, I think. Then again, it could just be an entertaining way to spend the Winter holiday…. tinkering.

    Keep warm!
