Outlook: Dull

Sorry, still nothing much to report here and very little time to do that in.

Mr L gave up on the central heating boiler after fitting a new jet and oil filter and he called somebody in to look at it. The verdict was that a new controller was needed and the boiler man went away on Wednesday evening saying he would try to get one in Scotland and return after tonight to fit it. Well, this diagnosis kept niggling at Mr L and he went to check and decided that the controller was fine. He Googled a little and then set about cleaning the burner. The Central Heating now works. Hurrah!

The replacement wash basin tap came in today’s post and was fitted — but not without a measure of trauma and a deal of bucket filling and emptying.

What else… more laundry, the arrival of our new memory foam mattress and pillows, the taming of the waste hose on the Roadtrek (another HURRAH! moment, that one) plus a number of other improvements and running repairs  including the fixing of the sink waste leak and new runners for the cutlery drawer that has been flying open every time that we round a bend too fast. Sale of the Bar Billiard table is agreed and Mr L’s vinyl collection has left the premises.

The concert tickets have arrived and Vincent is almost ready for me to pack again for our weekend away, which I have to say that I am looking forward to very much indeed. Optician appointments have been made for both of us for the Friday afternoon. I really ought to fit in a shearing session at the hairdresser too,

Tried watching ep 1 of American Gods last night. I do not think that we shall be wasting any bandwidth on ep 2.

  • No knitting done but I do have itchy fingers and a desire to make something delicate and pretty.
  • No further French lessons yet though we should probably try lesson 2 tomorrow
  • I really must write up our journey home for Two Snails.
  • and plan our meals for the weekend away and make anything that needs to go with us
  • Mr L is pestering me to tell him what to cook for dinner next weekend. I am stubbornly refusing to have a birthday, thank you very much.

See – boring!

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

    I have really enjoyed following you both on your trip to the emerald isle and am glad to see your safe return home. Glad you have sorted the few homecoming glitches with relative ease. Best wishes and happy thoughts to you both.

      Hello, sweetie. How are you? I wouldn’t be too up on the sorting glitches thing just yet. Today was not the best of days 🙂 but the shower is now working – unlike the new tap.

I enjoy reading your comments, please pass the time of day
