Chanson de la Semaine

To avoid repeating myself on a weekly basis and lose the interest of our regular fan, I will point you towards Week 68 in the Archive for an explanation of why I am suddenly featuring a piece of music each week. Incidentally, the Archive Pics with a little audio icon on them are the ones which will have this little feature..beginning, of course, with Week 68.

I had a good think about this week's song and after a lovely time spent with my family the song kind of chose itself. It's called 'Home'.

You've probably already seen a blue or yellow band at the top of the page asking if you want to run this program and showing a 'Run Active X' tab. Click on that and then click on 'Run' and a little CD player should open below the song title. Press Play, Stop or Whatever.


Week 83

We were determined to get as much completed of the ensuite as poss before the arrival of my mum and Sheila. We largely succeeded but it's still a work in progress.


We've had a few visitors in the last few weeks. First off was Bas and Roeleke from Holland who left us with two sun loungers as a parting gift. We had a very mellow few days and had a sunny afternoon with Ray and Ann to boot. This week my Mum and her mate Sheila came to call. We had a laugh and they put the sun loungers to good use - ta Bas and Roeleke. We were treated to a brilliant lunch at Ray and Ann's plus tea and cake at Chris and Richard's. Thanks to one and all for the hospitality. We got very drunk on Pims and had the odd barbeque. The place was eerily quiet when they left. As ever photos included.

Quilts, Cats and Climbers

Ann, of Ray and Ann fame, makes some beautiful quilts. I thought it was high time everyone else got to see them so I've included a few from the collection below.

There's a new cat over at Richard and Chris's place. He belongs to their daughter Patsy and is called, not surprisingly, Badger. I though he was a fine beast, pic below.

My Jicama bean vine has been growing very nicely thank you. I got the seedling off Ray, thank you very much with chips. I'm not one to gloat so I've included the piccies for educational purposes only, so Ray, and the world for that matter, can enjoy the beauty of a well nurtured vine.
