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!)19th July 2009 at 17:39 #800613

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!2nd September 2009 at 16:29 #800621
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.

No bise, but plenty of rain. The 40cm of snow we got last week all gone. Returned from UK with bad cold – miserable!10th December 2009 at 15:55 #800625
Forecast for -9 daytime by Monday and windchill -19 lets hope
the snow comes too, because my ice skating control is as poor as my
crosscountry,counting the days.
