Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Later... I have had my sleep and now I've got my act together and I am ready to give my feet a good soak in a mixture of Epsom Salts and Radox. That should do the trick. It has reminded me of something I have to report to Sue. I am sorry to tell you that the U3A foot spa has bitten the dust. The el...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I hope your poorly one improves, that sounds like a good plan for the day. I am cooking sausage at the moment. The top oven and grill on the new cooker is very efficient, much faster than the old one and I'm sure it uses less leccy. Luckily Bill was fine, so our original plans went ahead. Fabulous ...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Yes I had heard that about the jet stream Stanley and when we had a cool damp summer two years ago it was the same cause. This morning is thick thick mist and rather cold. Normally this would burn off by 11.00 to reveal a hot day, but that is not forecast. 18-20 appears to be the forecast maximum. E...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Here, summer is ruled not by the weather but by when the kids go back to school, LA RENTREE, ie the first week in September whatever the weather the BBQs will go away, summer tables put inside, autumn attire worn. It makes us laugh.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

When we get home I shall put in a claim for the money. We used to get it all back but now we only get back what the French health insurance system pays out. All in all very efficient. I hope it works a bit better than dealing with Greece, nearly 3 year since Sally put in her claim for the steroid i...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Power sockets here must be at least 1 metre from any water source. Having said that, I have a double power point directly over my loo. It's the one I plug my hair dryer into. I always shut the toilet lid...just in case. You can have a power pont next to the washbasin here, in fact a shaving socket ...

Smashing job Sue but I'm a bit concerned with Image #1 showing the electrical socket adjacent to the toilet. I appreciate that the device is powered but shouldn't the power be directly cabled rather than plugged. I know that it would not meet UK electrical regulations. Different regulations, we hav...

Image #2 intrigued me, I was expecting to see someone in the mirror taking a picture of someone in the mirror ad infinitum, if you see what I mean. It wasn't until I did a full expansion that I could see that you had just poked the laptop at the edge of the door to take the pic. There! I do take no...
