    1. Thanks, I am happy to be up and about but still coughing a bit, thankfully once I go to sleep now I seem not to cough until I wake naturally. Also nice to be out despite the weather! Diane

    1. We have had 140mm this month so far (about 5 1/2 inches), we are high though so no problems with flooding, our local village has a river running through it though! Glad to see you back, I was worried as you seem to have gone AWOL for the past week. Keep well Diane

    1. It was exceptionally quiet out yesterday, typical Monday, half the French have the day off and the supermarket was also quiet and being Monday had run out of a number of things!!!!! When are you off to Portugal? Diane

  5. Love all that green. Are they meadows or agriculture? I'm reading blogs with rain in Florida, South Africa and now France.

    1. Those fields are all agriculture, at this time of the year mostly winter wheat. South Africa needs the rain as that have had drought conditions this season but they do not need storms! There has been masses of rain all over Europe this January with mild temperatures. Looks like winter though is on its way and the cold is arriving very soon! Keep warm Diane
