Tuesday

Always good to see Carol stroking her pussy

20131106-130429.jpg

Always good advice

20131106-130437.jpg

Made a lovely lunch of purple cornflower and sprouted stuff

20131106-130443.jpg

Off to Gemm Vert to buy more shrubbery

20131106-130451.jpg

The homepage of spacedogs on instragram looked good http://instagram.com/spacedogs

20131106-130501.jpg

Wednesday

Seems like good advice

20131106-130509.jpg

Out for lovely meal to Park Restaurant at the school in Savignac, so lovely to be able to walk to a place and not have to worry about ‘who is driving’  – lovely welcome in restaurant.

Lovely welcome glass of bubbly, we had four courses, the bacon soup was OK bit salty, the scrambled eggs worked, the duck casserole was OK  – veg and broth nice and the dessert of pear, custard, ice cream, cake and liquor on a spoon was a bit messy, but for 22 euros and lots of wine was great

Home, Terminator, good film, only a bit of it looks dated, and shockingly almost 30 years old

20131109-200544.jpg

The family joined us for a bit of a boogie

20131109-200632.jpg20131109-200646.jpg

Thursday

Did little, was good

Friday

Off to Perigueux to buy (drum roll) the strimmer again, it looked promising as there were lots of new things in the shop, but alas the phrase again was ‘next week’

Popped into a supermarket, wondered if Matty has branched out to tinned fruit?

20131109-200657.jpg

Have decided that my favorite colour is pumpkin

20131109-200703.jpg

Saturday

It was a sunny/ misty start to the day

20131109-200710.jpg

Out to Thenon, the scenery looked autumnal and lovely

20131109-200725.jpg20131109-200734.jpg

In Thenon we went to buy, yes, a strimmer, we got there, however, nothing on the shelves, but we were told ‘next week’

After joining the tinternet on my phone we found another place selling the strimmer in Montignac, 20 minutes drive, difficult to find the place, and just about to give up we found the place at 12.01, the shop shuts for lunch at 12.00  – till 2! Paul was slightly pissed off at this point, so homeward bound for lunch

Out to retail parks, browsing, bought a few things to brighten up our lives 🙂

Saw some nice images, they seem to be obsessed with the UK and the USA

20131112-234018.jpg20131112-234031.jpg20131112-234041.jpg20131112-234053.jpg

Home, dinner, strictly

Sunday

The sun was bright and the sky blue

20131112-234106.jpg20131112-234114.jpg

Bit of a shock that Ryan Air (bless em) had changed the days of the flights to Liverpool from Tuesday to the Sunday before – we didn’t know – so much was spent trying to work out how to make the plans work, luckily, Paul managed to find a flight to Southampton which still enabled us to hire a car there and leave in Liverpool – not relaxing at all

Monday

Mostly packed/ got ready for our big trip this week

Did my show

#SpaceDogsRadio live 6-8pm CET on http://www.belter-radio.webeden.co.uk this weeks theme: NOVEMBER #SDR eccentric/ eclectic/ electric

And as the oil was low we built a big big fire!

Tuesday

The day started with a glow in the sky

20131114-155523.jpg

Last minute packing and off we went to Limoges, airport, coffee, plane, fecking propellers!!!

Flight was OK, very smooth and in an hour we were in Southampton. Off plane into car hire place ‘but you are an hour early’ we were greeted with, thankfully, the car was there, of course it was there, where else would it be?

Off to visit Karin, was great to be able to do that. And then onwards to Swansea via service station and a festive gingerbread latte and gingerbread cake, both yum!

20131114-155541.jpg

very VERY sad little game

20131114-155558.jpg

Lovely red sky on route

20131114-155832.jpg

And in 3 hours we were in Swansea premier inn. Off for dinner in the hotel and Squeak was tucked up in bed with some bedtime reading

20131114-155608.jpg

20131114-155619.jpg

Wednesday

Up to the sight of Swansea marina thingie

20131114-155629.jpg

Dropped Paul off for his work meeting and I was off to get hair cut, found place, packing was funny, arrived at Murphys Barbers (Est 1969) man after me couldn’t be seen till 3 pm, so I was glad I got there at 10.15. Had a good laugh with haircutter person, mainly about onesies

20131114-155641.jpg

Back to hotel, shower, checked out, and off to the sights of Swansea

20131114-155658.jpg20131114-155721.jpg

Kinds of sums it up

20131114-155742.jpg20131114-155751.jpg

Swansea is grim, like a bigger version of Newport really, and boy oh boy is it Christmas in the UK, felt like I was beginning a mild panic attack in Marks as song was singing ‘it will be Christmas soon…..’ had to get out

Lunch was at an American diner place, burger and vanilla malted shake were delish, but i didn’t need the huge pile of fries

Bought a yoga DVD in HMV, wandered around, was a bit chilly as had left my coat in France. Came to 2.30 back to hotel, coffee, and then Paul was ready, picked up, then off to Manchester

Popped into Media Centre for quick bite to eat, its where the BBC is don’t you know, and then suddenly there were lots of people running away

Arrived in #Manchester to see people running away

Then to stay with Lilian, Paul off to Huddersfield, the weather forecast said it all really

20131114-155800.jpg

Thursday

A view I have seen so many times, but perhaps not again, Lilian may be moving soon to Wigan

20131114-155810.jpg

Do you really need four bins? yes you do in Manchester

20131114-155818.jpg

Lush red sky sunset

20131115-123050.jpg

Off to Isis for dinner, food was great as per, Lilian enjoyed her coffee

20131115-123105.jpg

We sent photo to Paul to say goodnight

20131115-123114.jpg

Friday

Weather forecast says snow in Limoges, eek!

20131115-123123.jpg

Worked on an idea for the radio show

20131118-204215.jpg

Off to Morrisons to help Lilian with the shopping, Paul arrived about 2 and then off to Leeds

Out to the centre so Paul could see a Guru or Genius at the apple store

20131118-204231.jpg20131118-204251.jpg

no, YOU are the genius!

20131118-204319.jpg20131118-204334.jpg

Cocktails! yummy!

20131118-204353.jpg

20131118-204402.jpg20131118-204411.jpg

Off for dinner to streetfoodie place, great fun and great tofu curry with broken (!) rice

20131118-204421.jpg

Lots of wine to be drunk, Alison had an odd way of warming the wine

20131118-204434.jpg

I was VERY tired – must of been the little sleep over the past two nights

Saturday

We all made it to the cinema to see Gravity in 3D, great film, shed a tear or two, civilized cinema with pizzas and being able ot take bottle of wine in as we sat in sofas watching the flick

20131118-204447.jpg

Sunday

Breakfast with a fastive napkin

20131118-204512.jpg

Squeak had a marvelous time

20131118-204520.jpg

Note to self……?

20131118-204546.jpg

And off to Liverpool, we enjoyed the car, nippy little thing! and was tres chilly in Liverpool

20131118-204530.jpg

Home late, drive back, nearly ran into a hot, dead, steaming large best in the road that another car must have hit  – oh the glamor

Monday

The oil arrived, and lo, we have heat!

20131118-204605.jpg

Paul’s phone looked clean and efficient

20131118-204556.jpg

Limoges looked chilly/ snowy

#SDR eccentric/ eclectic/ electric

Tuesday

Did my first yoga of 10 minutes with a DVD, was a bit chilly in the garage, so next week inside for 15 minutes

I noticed at 5 that the day was whizzing by

Tried to watch the 2 hr BBC ultimate DR Who guide but was awful with awful celebs and pop music being forced together – it was vile!

Wednesday

Another French lesson, and went well, felt better on leaving than arriving

Paul had made contact with a ‘floor specialised’ in the village, they popped in and everything seemed to go well, so now we wait for quote

Thursday

The kitchen arrived!

20131122-124641.jpg

A fire was built to try and burn the many many leaves

20131122-124648.jpg

This is where the oil went to, fingers crossed with the heating on it lasts a while

20131122-124654.jpg

Date night and out for dinner – so idea what the restaurant was called but the Texan pizza was yum!

20131123-191517.jpg

IT ???

20131123-191523.jpg20131123-191530.jpg

Was looking forward to breakfast the day before!

20131123-191536.jpg

Saturday

And lo, breakfast was good!

20131125-210655.jpg

It was DR Who day…… here’s my review that I put on digital spy

Ok, been watching dr who since the Jon Pertwee years, and fans of the Pertwee/ Baker/ Tennant years – so there, my cards are on the table – just thought I’d share my random thoughts

Thought the ‘journey in time and space’ story of the original set up of Dr Who in the 60’s was excellent TV – emotional/ thoughtful/ moving/ well acted

So, am not a hater or a troll, but very underwhelmed with this 50th special, most exciting bit for me was the 2/3 seconds of the 13th doctor.

Hey ho, bits didn’t make sense, Tom Baker (who I loved a as Dr Who) the caretaker? What?

The bizarre Elizabeth 1st with the 3D photos? the 3 tardis? The bizarre last scene of all the (cardboard cut outs, sorry) Doctors

Then I think, so what? This programme ain’t aimed at me anymore – and as a fan of science fiction I can still believe Star Trek can fly at warp 9 – however, 50th celebration episode – bit dull – 7/10 – was a good episode, but not a classic one

But at least the OTT background music didn’t get on my nerves as much – and was great to see Tom Baker

Ah well – peace, love and light to you all

Sunday

Paul worked on the shrubbery….

@daronoram @joshiebhall last nite had my yearly ‘back at metro’ dream – Clive was there too 🙂

Drove to Bergerac, Paul off to Swansea – he had a time and  half on the trains in the UK
