Just Another Rainy Day




The rain persists.  Rick is barking at every single horse that rides by the house. A press photographer is roaming across the garden with his camera.

The temperature has dropped.  We had courgette soup for lunch. 



I watched a BBC programme about Peter O’Toole.  There was some old footage of him with Richard Burton – they looked so very young.  

I went upstairs and wallowed in a hot bath.  Paul cut my hair for me (he does a very good bob).  After the evening dog walk I shall curl up on the sofa with my whiskey and chocolate and watch Fargo and Poldark.  It will be nice when the sun comes out again.

    3. Lotto is big in France but I'm not keen on the prizes, usually a ham joint or a vacuum cleaner.

  4. I always liked Peter O'Toole, wonder if the footage was from Becket, one of my favorite movies.

  6. You are a trusting soul, letting your husband cut your hair. I know Fargo was a movie, is it also a tv show? I'm not familiar with Poldark. If it's a British crime mystery show, I'd love to try it out! -Jenn (very weird having photographers on your property)

    1. The Fargo TV series was inspired by the original movie, we are watching the third (and probably last) series at the moment. I like the black humour. Poldark is a period drama based in Cornwall, it's worth watching just for the Cornish scenery.
