Under the weather

Drove through some horrible weather last night over to Bossee to catch a small part of Celtiqua's set but currently battling with man-flu (and we all know how hard that is) symptoms so didn't stay too long. The locals seemed to be enjoying it and the hall was set out for dancing...wonder how that went?

Another walk in the woods...

For this Thursday's Le Grand-Pressigny Randonnee club outing we had a depleted group due perhaps to the time of year and the uncertainty of the weather prediction. As it happened we had a little drizzle for a short spell at the start of the walk for the rest it remained a fine autumn day... 
on which we were not going to let anything get in the way of a good walk
It was a fairly familiar route with variations that only our intrepid leader Joel can add, although today he was absent due to recovering from an op..
His other half, Denise, was the leader for the day and provided us with a hill to end the 9.5 km, much appreciated! It was enough to thin out even this small band of intrepid walkers for the home straight!
It was interesting to see new (well, will be next year when he moves to France) member Bob (Robert) seemed to have the best reserve of energy to finish the walk

You'll have a slice of lemon in that...

Last night friends stopped in for an overnight stay on way back to UK from Spain and brought us some fresh lemons from their garden which Pauline put to good use immediately in a refreshing g&t

Wall to wall repairing...

Had this little project to keep me out of mischief last month - hard work but satisfying.
