Water flowing underground
same as it ever was
Perhaps it's the weather

Taking it easy at home and looking forward to my three days at Henlow Grange I really, really, need to get into a pool and swim 3 or 4 times a day to get rid of the stiffness that seems to have infected all my joints during the very hot weather in France.

The beloved daughter and partner were going to call in on their way north, yesterday, but got caught up in the traffic problems that affected the A1 (and the M25 by the sounds of it) - all due to the Robbie Williams concert at Knebworth. MWNN and I wondered what the traffic warning was all about when we read it as we passed on our way home from Troyes last week. I thought it was they're digging up that section of motorway AGAIN problems, but, no, all because of HIM So, anyway, said daughter will not be receiving her bottle of champers or bath bombs this weekend (unless they call in on the way home from wherever they are.)

Don't get me wrong, I like Robbie too. Very fond of his 'I've been expecting you' album. And he's a fellow northerner - well I KNOW Stoke is officially in the midlands but I tend to stretch geography a little.

Good news about our blond bloke's future isn't it?

still haven't finished loading eps of BtVS yet
Is rendered speechless.

What series are you downloading? You do know that Sky1 is re-running the whole kit 'n' caboodle don't you?

Have a lovely relaxing few days :) I know what you mean about swimming and the French heat. We normally go swimming in the local Lake (if you look at a map of France there are three huge lakes just south of Bordeaux - we go to the one which has a place called Gastes at it's southern shore) but this year it will be a no-go due to possible bacteria and the pregnancy. There is a local pool in the village where the house is but that is always crowded and I hate swimming in crowded pools. I am though making the most of the weather here this week - tomorrow I have my acquasize class and am taking a day off from my study to take a book with me to the pool (outdoor pool) and spend the day on the sun loungers :)

Bully for you - time off from study is a good thing. How's the course going? You on the final assignment yet?

Enjoy your class - acquasize is great isn't it? I did some when I broke my ankle a few year's back. Make sure you stay in the shade and drink lots today - it's going to be HOT again here. (Though not as hot as in France, it's in the high 30s again there this week.

See you on 12th - don't forget to send me directions.

At least in France I will have a lovely cool stone farmhouse to disappear into :)

I've sent you an email with directions.
