|Rick waiting for the girls to come home|
It’s a grey and damp day. After weeks of excitement and preparation the house feels empty, too tidy, too quiet. Even Rick looks miserable and is mooching around looking for the girls. There is a chance that Sarah might get back to England for the Christmas holidays and Kat will have some leave so that is something to look forward to even if I have to cook a nut roast alongside the turkey.
In the meantime I am looking forward to October in France and hopefully we will get some more sunny days. The potager is looking a bit sad at the moment but there are still a few tomatoes left on the vine, a handful of raspberries, and a few peppers, aubergines and courgettes. Tonight Paul is cooking duck and I’m going to make a raspberry and apple crumble. Comfort food. Autumn is here.
