    Morning all, Its potentially warmer and sunnier this weekend so laundry in the machine and plans to catch up on outside jobs. Yesterday Dora had an exciting day - out twice just to sit in the car and two trips in her carry case first to go post Christmas cards and then again to collect our...

    Morning all from a crispy, frosty France. Must go and see to the chickens feed and water in a mo, but its really chilly and I'm waiting for the sun to peep over the treetops first. Hopefully it will be a bit warmer this afternoon and we can venture out to the back where it is sheltered and Im...

    Morning all, its been misty and cooler for a couple of days here which is very welcome but no rain to speak of, but first thing in the morning it is pretty fresh and what my grandmother called "hoppickinny weather". They say here that once the weather is on the turn you need to wear many layers...

    Hello folks - it seems very quiet on the site today! Hope you are all OK. After a very hot night we have a cooler cloudy day with very light , but very welcome rain. I hope it greens things up a bit - even the thyme plants are all crinkled up and brown. As I noted a few days ago I washed my car...

    Good morning all, Another dry day here but cloudy - however the grass is beginning to turn brown and crispy, and the water butt is empty, but I am sitting with a soggy Dora on my shoulder though as she has decided its her fortnightly bathday. Working in the garden I notice that this year we...

    Good morning all, a fine and sunny day ahead for most I think. Yesterday was quiet and peaceful here, and I had a long conversation with my friend whose husband died...apparently as this was not covid related they allowed her and their 3 daughters to be at the hospital - and having already...

    Morning all, its been throwing it down here this morning and now the sun has come out for a moment (but doesnt look like it will last for long). My husband left at 6 to drive back to the UK for his last trip. We always allow Dora to see that we are going and say goodbye, so she doesnt just wake...

    Hello everyone, another bright but chilly day here, so have the heating on - poor Dora is moulting and is all spiky around her neck and cheeks, but still wants scritches, I just have to be careful not to catch the new pin feathers. She seems to have lost some smaller wing feathers symmetrically...
