This Tuesday afternoon drive to Marmande, heater on, rain lashing windscreen. Thermals, hat and scarf and still I'm cold.
It's snowing in the foothills of the Pyrenees and the forecast here for tonight is just over freezing. I'll have to cover last year's geranium cuttings that are coming on so well in their pots at the back of the cottage.
The under floor heating is back on again.
