Playing catch-up

Simon and I have decided to go to France for Easter - he just needs to get on with it and book holidays now. He has to ask for the time off that I have told him to ask for first before accepting what he thinks he will be given - I know, cryptic BUT I know what I mean!! We do need to go, to inspect the new patio if for no other reason!

The new patio
I have taken photos for yesterday 81/365 on the other blog BUT am very bad at posting them on/in time ... how do I get around this?? No, I have no idea either!
Posting will be worse when I get to France BUT **major drum roll** the sleepy French village now has Broadband that WORKS! Hurrah! And how long long did that take?*
Brush teeth before moisturing hands - you can't get any traction on a toothbrush with E45 cream on your hands!!
Child Protection Training today at The Friars! Training and monks and the relics of St Thérèse of Lisieux all in one day! Sister Philomena would be so proud! I'm not enthralled by the thought of lunch - I bet friars are parsimonious and think dry bread and water are sufficient if God is with you. You know and I know that I'm sooooooooooo not a dry bread and water kind of girl! I couldn't even be a dry bread and water kind of girl if it was artisan organic sourdough and San Pellegrino ;o)
*Interjection of small **NOTE TO SELF** Your mother may now be reading your blog again - be aware, very aware!!

Hope all is well -- that's great that you are coming to France for Easter.

Yes, as you see I've started Twittering again after a brief fling with it last summer; we'll see how it goes.

someday I'll make it to France. Someday. And I'll need to bring my 8 yr old interpreter with me. :-)

Happy Mingling!

What a wonderful holiday break you'll have. Even if there is patio work involved - you'll be in France! Please write about the meals you have. And take photos.

Hey, thanks for you comment on my blog. I read your first "100 facts about me," and I particularly liked this one:

I can sing the whole of the theme song from the Muppet Show

So do I! I was (and still am) a huge Muppet fan, and was once a card carrying member of the Muppet fan club.
