No chance to feel gloomy with you around! I don't know what Sky would say if she's the limit!



Sorry Sky, I dragged you into this! Feel free to chastise me!

No. We were glued to an excellent and very unromantic Swiss Coronavirus documentary and debate on local TV.

Besides, I am still waiting for those dozens Spacex satelites to make many wishes.

How is your ménage à 4 developing? Still livin' on the edge, in Corona times?

Well, one of my strong points is to always find the exceptions to the rule. And there are always several. Living on general knowledge means missing life.

Aye, well, this could have been an option, but I don't know how to spoil a lass as well as you do! I think I'll let them watch the "Outlander" series for everything to do with kilt fantasy ("skirt", go and wash your mouth with soap, young man! ) and save the red pack for more "pedagogy" with the Primary School teacher!

Are you a "kiltie, kiltie, cauld bum" by any chance

Some bits of Outlander are filmed around my part of Fife, my sister is mad for it but I couldn't get into the story

My husband is from the East End of London, but I call him an honorary Scotsman because his middle name is Donald

From your spelling I take it, the Duracel-present was well chosen.

Now I'm waiting for this year's apparently over dimensional spring to move from the French to the German part.

Re: He's back!

More star gazing last night, laying in a field outside the village, bottle of wine within hands reach, wonderful, what a sight! Somehow, not all the stars seemed to be coming from the sky...

I wrote what I meant! I did a fillet of fera (long, flat fish from the lake, not sure of its name in German) in a citrus and ginger marinade on a bed of Madras curried spinach with a drop of Basil olive oil, saffron rice with grated lime and for pudding a red fruit crumble with a Whisky and ginger custard! Ah!
