try breathing into a brown paper bag

Our EHIC cards arrived today, a double EHIC delivery. As did the realisation that we need a GB sticker for the van as we do not have Euro-style number plates on the van. I asked if we might have a SCO one instead, and Mr L countered with a suggestion of an Ecosse sticker… but alas, to be legal we must bear the GB plate. I want to add the Ecosse for good measure now, and maybe a large sticker that says “REMAIN” on it, then perhaps our French cousins won’t be pointing their fingers at the stupid English people.

I also made  a Summer Green Soup from a leek, an aging Little Gem, the core half of a courgette and the stalks of the asparagus that went into Sunday’s quiche. It might sound dreadful but it was actually rather good and you know, we retired folks must make ends meet… waste not, want not.

There are unpromising noises emanating from the UPS. Is there a thunderstorm around or do we have another crow’s nest on a transformer somewhere (an annual tradition in these parts.) Ah, and the Internet connection is down so I cannot post this.

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
