Well, how lovely – two resting bloggers have picked up their blogs again and have kindly dropped in to leave comments. Sablonneuse and Debum are old blog friends of mine, one in France and one in India, so it’s a pleasure to hear from them again. I’ve linked to their blogs on my sidebar.
Now, the other subject of this post – I hardly need to say, but I will – you’re all invited, of course (I realise that I won’t be fortunate enough to have trans-continental visitors every year, but there’s no reason not to hope). That I’d like to know if you’re coming is mainly so that I can put out enough chairs, but there’s no limit. As before, we are very happy to welcome overnight guests too, we have plenty of room although, if all beds are in use, someone may end up on a mattress. Possibly even me.
Last year, we went for the last Saturday in June, but I can’t see any commitments here at present in early summer, so any time in May, June or July would suit. Would you let me know any preferences – or maybe, definite dates to avoid? I mention it so early because I know many of you are vastly busy. Of course, mentioning a date puts you under no obligation.
I haven’t consulted the family yet, I’ll try to rope them in too.
It was a lovely sunny morning, so I spent an hour tidying up in the garden. A torrential downpour right now, so I’m feeling pretty smug that I got on and did it. I know some of you will have had dreadful weather all day, hope you’re all warm and dry.
And now, I’m going to write a garden to-do list, to take us through the next three months. This is not going to involve gardening as such, but ‘take up stone slabs and re-lay path,’ construct new chicken run,’ ‘dismantle old shed’ – that sort of thing. I can, at least, tick off something already. I don’t think that’s cheating in the least…
