Do not fear mistakes - there are none.
The height of the melon season. The supermarket aisles an obstacle course of cantaloupes on special offer. €3.50 each in the greengrocers , €1.50 here.No wonder the small retailers are disappearing .
Overnight a huge storm. Hail clattering down chimney breasts, shutters banging, the zinc guttering chortling with overflowing rain. To our surprise neither Bob nor Sophie seem alarmed. A few quick growls from Bob and then he's back asleep. Sophie doesn't even bother waking.
This morning we find a heavy wooden bench and a large garden umbrella lying on top of the pool cover. What sort of gusts must there have been ? Bob and Sophie are in PON seventh heaven picking up fallen twigs.
