Still here

The weather took such a toll of my mood yesterday that I got very little prep done. The pudding is made and just needs decorating – it’s a lemon flavoured take on Tiramisu and probably already exists under a known name but I have not heard of it, so this is my invention.

We kept the power all night and the winds are easing now but the sea is pouring into the garden. We may have little track surface left after this. Postie could not reach us and nor, I fear, will the local carrier this morning – I am waiting my bread flour supplies.

There remains the best part of an hour to high tide, so the sea is going to be coming in for about two hours in total. We may be stuck here for a few days while things drain. There’s no point in worrying about it. We shall light the fire, have a bit of an adventure, watch the waves, and comfort ourselves with baking and the Logica Armchair Treasure Hunt.

What are you up to this weekend?

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

      Indeed. But I think you may underestimate the scale… I sent you one pic but I couldn’t get good ones. I am NOT taking the Canon out in that salt spray. The pocket cam is acting up and took two shots with the lens cover part closed. It won’t zoom either.

        Wow, I’d definitely say the road was blocked!
        BTW, that’s pretty good for not a good pic! 🙂

    I went out again, after we saw Marika turn back. If she couldn’t tackle the road in her big vehicle…

    It’s going to take a bit of cleaning.
