Well, the days are drawing in -- we are past the Equinox now and the packing up has started -- albeit very slowly, as the weather is sunny and extremely pleasant -- low seventies/mid20's. Earlier today we started the annual shopping for those goodies you can only get in France. Some artistic presents for birthdays coming up, and unmentionable food for special celebrations and for Christmas. And of course -- wine. Tomorrow the packing-up gets serious. Sunday the big table on the patio gets put away -- then we know it's over until next year -- God willing...
Already our attention is on England and the family -- My niece and her family have just moved to London for two years -- can't wait to see her. The Man is having a big party for a big birthday in late October and my 'baby' sister is coming to England for her first visit to Europe at the end of October and I'm going to be staying with her -- after a quick trip to the Welsh border country after the big party and before the arrival at Heathrow. It will be 'grand' -- as my Grandmother would have said!
And when all of that is over it will be well into November and we all know what that means -- Yes, it will be time to get out my blow-up doll of 'The Scream' !!!
