Just an Ordinary Day

Eat sour cherries straight off the tree for breakfast.

Somehow move tractor from middle of field where it's stubbornly stuck.

Attach wisteria to new wire along side of house, as old wire was cut by the builders when they put in the kitchen window.  (Would have been much easier to do before all the leaves came out.)

Recover Kong which Vita expertly threw into the underground drain pipe that runs the length of the garage. Then cover drain pipe so she can't do it again.

(Maybe) unpack another box and decide where all the contents go.

Make houmous because there was none in Leclerc's at lunchtime.  And anyway homemade is much better.

Bring cookery books up from the cottage.  Or maybe only the book with the houmous recipe.

Choose and eat ice cream.

Watch Brazil play Portugal (bad-temperedly).

Go for a swim.


  1. What a beautiful place. Although seems you have the same amount of house work as we all do no matter where we live.
    I am trying to figure out what and how I can make enough time and money to visit France. It seems that life is so wonderful there (or maybe you just make it seem that way).

  2. Thank you Gregory. France is a lovely country to visit on holiday or to retire to. However for younger people who need to work here (French as well as incomers) life can be very tough. Taxes and social costs (including healthcare) are very high.
