    Don’t congratulate me – Claire did all the work (with a bit of help with her OH!).

    Little Cara is soooooo cute – a bit jaundiced yesterday but not to worry about. Hope they will be able to come home tomorrow. Granpa went to Rugby tots this am with little grandson – apparently he is VERY good (3!)

    LOL no time today- got to be back early for OH’s ….

    accordeon lesson. He thinks it is called ‘integration’ and will get him a Swiss passport quicker. At the local mi-été yesterday we had many Fribourgeois players and singers.

    another time .. if we don’t sink today (too much raclette this week).

    It rained a few drops yesterday – this am put the washing out- and 10 mins later it was bucketing it down. Apparently we had a mild frost here on Sunday am- said the neighbours – don’t believe a word!

    Don’t care,I am off to Tuscany! :lol:

    We are down next week for the Descent De Vache. And its a standing joke with our neighbors we bring the English weather,keep telling them that Kent is sunnier and drier than the Haute Jura but they will have none of it. I think they think we have webbed feet.

    Hi Odile,
    looks like the farmers got their rain, and looks like the Bise is setting in for a bit lucky you.

    No bise, but plenty of rain. The 40cm of snow we got last week all gone. Returned from UK with bad cold – miserable!
