New Neighbours......

.............in our garden!






A family of red squirrels - the cutest little creatures you have ever seen!  They've provided us with hours of entertainment with their antics , and also frightened the daylights out of me and William when one of them took a flying leap between the apple trees, missing my head by inches! 

Not the best photos ever, I know, but they were taken from the bedroom window.

So far August has been a bit of a run around month as DH goes into hospital on 7 September for a knee replacement op.

 Now, DH is not the most robust person around having a long and sometimes traumatic history of a cronic cardiac condition as well as only having one kidney, so it's fair to say that for him this is not a run of the mill op.  You really do not want me to list all the examinations & tests he has been put through these last few weeks :-)

 Having said that, his health care ever since we arrived in France has been second to none and this has once again been underlined by the great care that has been taken to ensure he is fit to undergo surgery.

I am fascinated by the squirrels in our garden. Such nice animals, except at night when they run over the roof.
I wish your husband all the best.
