Tuesday

Had dreams the night before of time traveling on a sledge – as you do

Lounged around the hotel room, packed, Paul off to meetings I saw Emma for lunch/ Chinese. Was great to catch up

Checked out of hotel (late check out) and off to Gatwick, airport, checked in – bit of confusion as the humorless person behind the desk said that I had to check-in using the electronic machine, I knew that the paper told me that I couldn’t do that, but hey ho.  Tried, but I didn’t have my booking reference number, a guy tried to help me, he found the booking ref no, but it still didn’t work so he had to print it out – so  – that was 10 minutes of my life wasted

Onto the lounge – nibbled on a very delicious fish finger sandwich – then to plane – Paul was sat in ‘first class’ – flight was fine apart from the very high pitched baby screaming

Arrived Bordeaux, car, homeward bound, in the dark, which was amusing, on the motorway – hardly anyone else on it, so was quite relaxing and 2 hours later we got home

Wednesday

Last night dreampt that had job interview, but job was based 2 hours drive out of London

Lovely start to the day

20131006-143841.jpg

Out to French lesson, was good, felt better on leaving than when I first arrived

Then later I managed to book a reservation (in French) at Cafe Louise for Thursday night!

Thursday

Out to Cafe Louise, food was OK – bit odd, and 3 courses not really needed. And Paul’s starter of mozzarella, tomato and basil consisted of a whole large tomato and whole ball of mozzarella  – funny

But at least we got some ideas for a color scheme for the kitchen/ dining rooms walls

20131006-143849.jpg20131006-143857.jpg

We had been promised a thunder storm all day, so did wonder if we would have power for question time, but apart from some flashes in the sky on the way home after the meal – the storm never arrived

20131006-143906.jpg

Friday

Started to soak seeds for the geminator

20131006-143919.jpg

We went out to the shops looking for garden stuff and I thought if I might need one of these?

20131006-143929.jpg

Make your own crisps?

20131006-143946.jpg

And into the germinator

20131006-144005.jpg

The wildlife was quiet

20131006-144013.jpg

Did my exercise and then enjoyed a banana chai soy smoothie

20131006-144021.jpg

Made my own hummas!

20131006-144032.jpg

At night, watched the Birds, and what a great film it is – never really appreciated it before

Saturday

Thought I would start the day with porridge

20131006-144042.jpg

And how many time will my phone ask this?

20131008-195601.jpg

Saturday

Dreampt Bruce Forsyth was playing an Italian godfather role, his accent was a bit dodgy

Sunday

Paul spent the day getting ready to go to London/ Swansea

Monday 7th

Drove to Limoges, popped into Castrorama (great name) and great store, lots of ideas to help shape the house (and wiki tiki bar)

20131008-195613.jpg20131008-195635.jpg20131008-195643.jpg

Dropped Paul at airport, drove back to house – prepared the garage doors to paint them tomorrow

Wednesday

More cleaning and dusting as the day before, enjoyed my blueberry smoothie – out to organic and ordinary supermarket

20131008-195739.jpg

Off to Limoges  – picked up Paul  –  off to Nissan garage to pick up car guide, it was there, but cost £35  – yikes!

Homeward bound

Thursday

Spent the day burning leaves!

20131010-225759.jpg

Out to Perigueux for dinner – after a bit of a search we went to a typical French place, was OK but mine was a tad greasy – but we tried somewhere new, so hooray to that

Maybe one day we will understand this menu?

20131011-091726.jpg

Friday

Lovely start to the day

20131011-091735.jpg20131011-091743.jpg

Onto retail park to look at possible kitchen things, saw lovely white oven thing

20131014-123429.jpg

Tuesday

Off we were to Bordeaux, to spend the day/ night before flying to London. Locked down the house, saw a praying mantis thing

20131017-152111.jpg

Drove on the motorway, using cruise control, which is a bit scary to begin with,  but certainly makes the journey a little easier on the foot

Into Ikea, for Swedish balls of course, which were delish

20131017-152123.jpg20131017-152134.jpg

Lovely pic

20131017-152149.jpg

We arrived with a white kitchen in mind, but that idea quickly in favour of other colours

20131017-152205.jpg

Into Bordeaux, eventually found a car park near the hotel (ish)

20131017-152231.jpg

The room had a very very tiny window

20131017-152240.jpg

Out for a wander, bit rainy so not the best for browsing – looked nice, main shopping strip a bit boring, could have been anywhere, but side streets looked nice

20131017-152252.jpg20131017-152304.jpg

Back to hotel, after a browse on the tinternet we found restaurant that was number 35 of the 868 restaurants in the city, found was great, very strange being served wine and your dinner with someone holding a baby at the same time

20131017-152321.jpg

Wednesday

Out to Cafe Paul for breakfast, hotel, packed, out for a little walk, saw one of the ‘sites’ the clock tower

20131017-152333.jpg

Into the car – bit of a panic as the sat nav doesn’t really ‘do airports’ but we found a sign and all was fine (rhymes)

And very quickly we were in Gatwick

20131017-152347.jpg

20131017-152355.jpg

Thursday

Paul off to Oxford for meeting, he had fun (not) on the trains, mine took ages and was 15 mins late, but got to the hospital for my 6 monthly check up, all fine, don’t have to go now for 8 months

Into the shops, for looking at things, wholefood market, stocked up at boots. Met Jane at Euston and we popped into Southbank for shops and maybe a small red one

20131021-104529.jpg20131021-104540.jpg

Onto Vapiano, met up with peeps, was great to catch up. Back on a train to Gatwick. night cap (s)

20131021-104554.jpg

Saturday

Into the retail park for retail shopping, house nik naks and saw lots of high viz wear in the decathlon

20131021-104602.jpg20131021-104610.jpg

How can you make shoes look so cheap? magic and cardboard?

20131021-104617.jpg

20131021-104624.jpg

20131021-104631.jpg

20131021-104638.jpg

Tuesday

Terry came round to look at the fire, after a while it was worked out that the wire needed to start the fan

20131021-104649.jpg

was indeed now behind the fire/ wood that had been added – so a plank needed to be removed – which it was and hey presto – fire!

20131024-092910.jpg20131024-092919.jpg

How many times…..

20131021-104656.jpg20131021-104703.jpg

In Perigueux saw the most tasteless tacky things EVER but wasn’t cheap

20131024-092956.jpg

Wednesday

Up early to take Jane to the airport, lovely drive, took no time at all. Waved adieu, and Jane will be back in January

The world to the airport was misty and spooky

20131024-093600.jpg20131024-093613.jpg

Home, lunch, off to French lesson, wish the words would stick – but they don’t
