    By the time we arrived, it was 6pm and 29°C. Mrs Scruff straight into La Med. Rosé chilling in the fridge for after dinner on the terrace.

    Not looking forward to 14 days iso when we return, but it's a fair price to pay.

    Masks are obligatoire.
    Depending on how long you're away for, the rules may have changed in your favour by the time you get back.

      I think people like the idea of a garden but fail to realise it's actually a decent amount of work to get them into a state where maintenance is regular tinkering and six monthly hacking.

        The rules change so often and so unpredictably, I'm beginning to think they're somehow transcribed from the spins of a one-armed bandit in a workingmen's club

          Workingmen’s club?

          More likely “who of our MPs are currently spaffing it up against a wall in which country?” “Make sure it’s not on the quarantine list”

              Went to see sister in Herefordshire. Knackered from long drive back. Quite nice yesterday, went for drink with old workmate who lives that way and he showed me round Ludlow.

              Don't like long drives any more, can't imagine how I used to do all that driving in contract days

                Dinner was pie, chips and peas, from the usual sources.
                and a nice Rioja.

                there's a circus in this one, apparently.

                  Turned chilly quite rapidly here - already down to 14°C (outside)

                  And we're forecast 8° by sunrise tomorrow. I predict the thin summer duvet will be getting put away again soon.

                    Tea has been chicken in red wine sauce with chips (M&S chunky triple-cooked ones, for a change) and petits pois, all out of the freezer, and all absolutely delicious
