It's lovely having a garden in the Vaunage

I used to live in a flat in London - well, only for 2 years (wot no garden?) Then a garden flat with a gorgeous little garden, then a rented house in France (what's the point in doing the garden?) and then a farmhouse with a huge garden (where do you start?). We're now in a tiny village house with no garden... it's on a boulevard with lots of trees and only 100m walk to the river bank which is lovely for a walk and a picnic... but nowhere to sit out and have breakfast or potter around and grow tomatoes.. we really really miss it... especially with a toddler.

So dog sitting in the Vaunage is great... I've spent a few hours dead heading the geraniums - Alicia adores watering the plants, often getting completely sodden in the process and playing with the labradors is fun. Alicia has no fear of them at all now... the most dangerous part of these two is their waggy tails... which at face height isn't funny. Anyway, we've had a great weekend sitting in the sunshine.

One of the downsides, is the owner of the house has left behind their brain training game for me to play with... it absolutely rubbish and tells me I'm 78 yrs old..... as if!
  • www.skyinfrance.co.uk have just told me that from March 2008 Channel 4 and Channel 5 will also be free (like BBC and ITV are currently...) up until now, you have had to buy this card - costing from around GBP20 up to GBP50 depending on where you buy it from.
