It's been a long time coming but finally school has closed for the summer and I am officially on holiday - lovely!

So this morning I went to France and bought some lovely cheeses, pate, wine, croissants, bread, apple tarts and olives.

Oh, alright, so I wasn't in France..... I was at the French market in Hungerford but I may as well have been.  The sun was shining, everyone was smiling and chatting in French, the smell of peaches was in the air and I was strolling up and down trying to encourage membership of the Hungerford Twinning Association - everyone was so friendly.

Then, because I have so much free time ahead of me, we called in on our friends to see their 9 German Shepherd pups before 8 of them go to new homes - they were absolutely adorable:

Earlier in the week we felt it was time to say goodbye to some visitors.  Every morning when I open the curtains I've been greeted by a load of wasps, so, a quick phone call to John Sage and literally an hour later he was up his ladder and sending them on their way.

I sent George up into the loft to get a picture of the nest but he said he couldn't find it.  He did say there was a man up there but not to worry because he was dead.  I wouldn't go up there - it's a scary place.

Then the local cubs visited on Thursday evening and had great fun grass-sledding down Lorne Hill.

I think I'd like to have a go!


  1. I'm assuming that's a picture of wasps.. I can't see them, but I like George's tale for not wanting to get too close to the nest. I was a little confused at first!!
    Did you have a go on the sledge?

  2. I can't see the wasps. Are you sure you and George aren't hallucinating?

  3. I'm not surprised you were confused! Somehow pictures of wasps, French food, and the wasp man up his ladder were replace with pictures of a new phone aerial!! - Don't ask.....
