The return of Lady Magnon.
Here she comes!
Today Lady Magnon returns from her trip to Australia, and I shall drive down to Toulouse airport this afternoon to fetch her. Hopefully her multitude of suitcases, corked hats, and fluffy kangaroos will fit into the boot of the compact family Royce (she's never believed in travelling light).
It'll be great to have her home again. For nearly two months I've had no-one here who'd listen to (and pretend to agree with) all my bigoted opinions about life, politics, and errant neighbours. Ah, it'll be like old times!
Welcome home Lady M. Now, there's something I've been wanting to talk to you about......
We went with friends to the Scallop festival in Whitianga; a charming
seaside town in the Coromandal District.
Had a great time...5000 people, lots of wine...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 45 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie/Black Lab' cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
