So there I was watching Friday Download with Number 3 where they were showing various mobile phone gadgets, one of which was an extended arm so that you can hold your phone and take a "selfie" from further away. What a load of old rubbish says Mum....... Well I went to Bordeaux on Monday with my friend to do a little shopping for that event that will happen later on in the year and guess what, my arms are too short. Here is my attempt at a "selfie" at which Emily will laugh hysterically I suspect as the main subject is a bottle, which to my shame also happens to be a water bottle. Oh well better luck next time must add that gadgety thing to my shopping list just need to google it and find out what it is called. The Place for those who don't recognise it is Place du Parlement and very dramatic it was there on Monday with thunder, heavy rain, light showers and sunshine during lunch.
I will be cooking a homemade ham this weekend to celebrate Gavins birthday I will let you know how it goes. Can you believe this will be the first time I have ever cooked a ham let alone having made the ham myself as well. Should be good. I will take a pic for next weeks blog.
We lit the fire this week mainly to take the damp out of the house and I think we have become "localised/Dordognified" after 10 years of living here and we now have the beginnings of an impressive winter wood pile at the entrance to our farm. Only another 6 trailers to load and unload before we have enough for the whole winter.
Enjoy your weekend wherever you are
See you soon
