Really, I must organise myself!

Since the last post I may report that:

Brunhilde’s blog still needs updating!

The cards that I  brought back from our Scottish break are now mounted in a double frame that I bought in town last week and are looking good in the bathroom.


We almost had a lovely photograph of a Goldcrest to show today but I was so excited to see the wee thing in the house that I forgot that I had a camera. The bird was lying on the ground having most likely stunned itself by flying into the conservatory. Mr L picked it up and brought it into the house to see if we might do something to help it. It actually revived quickly in the warmth of his hands and was released to fly away before I could grab a snap. Here instead is one of the freesias that I brought home from town last week.

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
