wet weeend

I had meant to post about the dentist's visit, but time ran out on me. However, it was not in the least painful as all he did was to take a form of my teeth. The weekend was planned with 10 friends an a BBQ. So what happened? The heavens opened on Sunday, with wind, and eating out, but we did BBQ the meat and fish. All went well with the sardines, then came the merguez and chops, half way through the gas ran out!!!!! So I ended up doing the cooking after all, and here was me thinking I was going to have a relaxing Sunday. Ah well, we did have fun anyway. The week so far has been lovely, but still a bit of wind. Had a doctor's visit on Monday and halleluja, my blood tests were good, everything had come down, so I am very happy with the way of eatiing I started two weeks ago. Took some getting used to, but now I am really enjoying it and don't feel at all hungry. And cm's are coming off, which is what I wanted, and of course, my blood work is good. Tomorrow it is a holiday here, so we are going, with friends, to a big camp picnic up at Plan D'Aups, which is where we have the bible camp. I am looking forward to doing some walking and breathing the air of the mountains. Sacha went to his hairdresser on Tuesday and he looks so SMALL now all his hair has gone. He is a poppet. Next week I have another dentist appointment, this time I think to work on getting the plate fixed. Poor Ray has a much harder procedure than me, each time he seems to be in the chair over 2 hours!!!!
Take care and have a good week.

my first entry

Right, this time I am going to try and keep up with this 'blogging' method of staying in touch. I have tried before and fell by the's hoping this time will be the successful time.
At the moment not too much is happening in my corner of the world except the weather is utterly gorgeous. I do so love living in the South of France, especially when I see lemons on my trees. One of my dreams has been to be able to go out into the garden and pick either lemons or oranges. So that dream has come true.
Ray has started a 'potagere' (vegetable patch) and we are now eating our own, honest to goodness, bio salads, spinach and soon to come lots more. Yummee...
The perlagoniums that we brought with us from England (one year ago) that I thought had died have suddening blossomed and are looking beautiful, thank you Lord. However my bouganvilliea (sp?) looks very very sad, I say it is dead, my hubby, ever the optimist says it is alive. We will see.
Sacha, the dog, has settled very well and is loving life in the sun. His favourite pastime is lying on the grass in the sun, until it gets too hot, then he goes in the shade, until he is cool, then off out into the sun again!! Did I say he is a lazy little dog????
Off to the dentist this afternoon so will post what horrible things he will do to pain PLEASE....
Also I have started a new way of eating, which is called Chrono Nutrition and I am finding it excellent, much more energy, have lost cm's from my body which is what I want, so we will see i this continues.
Until the next tim
