A diverse offering twixt the interesting, the unusual, and the amusing.

Lady Magnon is more enamoured with Christmas than I am, and this can be seen in her reluctance to give-up making Mince Pies.
With grandchildren soon to arrive, she's back in the kitchen baking pies. The excuse; her jars of (home-made) mincemeat need eating-up.
I like Mince Pies, I like the smell of baking Mince Pies, and I like to see Lady M with her hair, face, and apron covered in flour. It means that I get to have another wish with my afternoon cup of Lapsang!
STORIES NOW SILENCED ..........
*Little did I know that the GIF of a sparkler that I put in my last post
to wish everyone a Happy New Year would have caused so much pain and be so

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 (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 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), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. 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!
