Enjoyed a very alcoholic weekend in Cheltenham with about 14 others to celebrate a stag 'do'. Went racing Saturday and lost my hearing aid (thankfully found and handed in), but not my shirt!

Cousin not feeling too well so sadly Scotland is off the menu for this week.

Ugh! Work

Invigilating today and yesterday......my, what a boring job. Still, expect it'll pay for a starter at a Michelin restaurant in Tokyo!

Off to Scotland next week to see cousin. Hope I'll be able to replace my Stenhousemuir beanie hat, which I've lost.

Autumn in France

Just arrived back from la Belle France where the trees are all turning and the wine flowed richly!

Weather was wonderful with most afternoons in excess of 20*

We walked a lot round the village and picked up kindling for the fire, exciting eh?

And now, Monday, it's washing, cleaning, ironing, tidying etc., etc.

Only 34 more days till B's retirement!
