Hi all, @Sandra  sorry to hear about your mum , what a worry. At least they've got her on the records now and hopefully it is just an infection.

So today the fog has returned following yesterday's glory! Ive done some gardening, been out for a quick shop and this afternoon more gardening and make up my mini quilt attempt.

Have a good day, all of you and hugs.

Another lovely day here but the wind has shifted and is coming up from the south - that usually means some warm water will arrive shortly!

Off for a walk this morning - there appears to be a new small housing development started on the outskirts of the village so off to investigate. This could be positive thing ( only 20 or so homes) for the local school which is always hanging on by its nails for lack of kiddies - new families means more little people!
@Efemera  sorry to hear you are uncomfortable. Must get my second one sorted out too - perhaps I'll get it next week- then I'll see if my hypnotherapy has worked or not!

I'll sit back and wait until the format is decided by you clever people who know of what you are talking, but I'll  happily give it a go .

Anyone seen @Iminei?

I asked the same yesterday, perhaps she's busy busy busy with all the Darkside stuff.

Beautiful here today - looks and feels like summer - had to put some shade over the young veggies, although we are expecting the cold to come back again next week.

 Today I've been scrubbing the pool edges to remove the winter algae - backbreaking but very rewarding. It almost felt warm enough to go in - only almost though.  Then I gave the pittosporums a hair cut as it was almost impossible to get past them and stay on the terrace.

  Man finished relaying the drive yesterday and MrC is now watering it again as instructed. Can't personally see the surface turning rock hard as promised, but at least it now has no potholes or diesel oil spills.

So 2.90€ for the needles plus 6.90@ for delivery? They are joking!! No way I'm paying that much for delivery. I am stymied at each turn. I WILL have my needles one way or another!  When did it become so hard to buy needles?

Went to Perpignan again  to the sewing shop to have attempt number two to buy needles. Arrived at about 3pm. Shop shut. Only open from 10 -12 at the moment.  :rant: Going to have to be internet.

The work's all fairly straightforward from the Dry Cleaner. A couple of jobs I might have to send back needing further instruction.

@Gernella The wedding dress shop job was offering £9 an hour  :\ and there was a quite a long list of requirements/abilities. It was unclear if it was for a part time or full time position. I wouldn't want to be solely responsible for all of the sewing work. Wedding season would be horribly busy if you're working on your own.
I could imagine feeling under-appreciated and put-upon.


Bloody cheek I don't know what it is in England but that's well under minimum wage here - my local seamstress charges 25€ an hour ( I enquired out of interest) and she's always busy.

Where's @Iminei ? All OK I hope - perhaps she's lurking somewhere or still in bed?

Up at sparrow fart as we're having our drive relaid today and were expecting the man wot duz
 to be here early. He arrived at 11.15, but in his defence m'lid, he had a machine breakdown and was very good at keeping us in the loop.  Just before he arrived we were sitting on the terrace listening to couple of nightingales doing a sing-off. Now they've gone - all the scraping (nails on a blackboard)  and bashing has scared away everything.

Surely I'm not the first one up today ?  Anyway, sunny and calm so I've been watering  the babies, and now I'm going shopping. This afternoon we have an appointment with MrC's internal medicine specialist and hopefully there will be some news for us ( good preferably)
