Is it Spring Yet?

Today it could be, yesterday was wonderful, you could feel the warmth of the sun - it was great.  A "good to be a live" feeling.  Today is meant to be even warmer, might even get to sit on the deck for a few minutes.  GWE is home from Wichita for the weekend so a "no real estate" zone for a couple of days - no open houses.  

The temp job has confirmed that 27th will be my last day and although I have enjoyed the company and routine, the actual job is pretty mind numbing if hectic; so I am glad to see the end in sight.  Unfortunately that also means the end of regular pay checks for a while but back to the real estate in earnest and hopefully that will start to pay ....again.  

So no April in Paris for this girl, just not going to happen, now hoping (with fingers and toes crossed) that we will get several weeks out there in July.  One bright spot on the French house is that eldest son and his Australian girlfriend have now left Austria and are hitching their way to the French house!!!  We have offered him the option of some project managing work, i.e. hang around the house for a couple of months so we can organise artisans and schedule some work.....but we have given them the option of going there and checking out just what the living accommodation offers before committing, so stand by on that.   As you can imagine it is pretty basic and that's kind of how they live anyway but they tend to like hot water so that might be an issue ....that and heat of course.

That's all for now folks, cannot hang around blogging when the sun is shining!! Have a great Sunday.  I hope the sun is shining on you too.

Have just come in from the garden and rearranged things out there. Lovely!

Sorry there's no April flight to France but July will soon come..... though don't let's wish our Spring and Summer away before its even begun!
I'm sure that son and girlfriend will manage fine without hot water & heating for a while.
it used to be the norm for me as a child! Boil up the kettles ..... they can manage. Will be a good test to see how things are over there & to see if they can rough it a bit. Better than camping?

You never know SITH - your son might come up with a way to get hot water!

I think July will be a lovely month as well. I do envy you. It's on our list -

It is beautiful here today and yesterday and Friday come to think of it! I have opened up my conservatory - the cat is thrilled to get back in there and the dogs love watching the garden from there too. Now I just have to give it a good old clean to prepare it for the summer. It feels good, here's hoping we get a decent summer here this year. Two years of clouds torrential rain and no sun kills you off a little each time.

Spring came floating in on a white fluffy cloud over the weekend and its been glorious here..... what a difference a bit of warmth does for ones soul..

All our thoughts are on the garden, waiting to be rediscovered after a long winter. We can't wait. I dropped in from French Fancy.

Sun is shining, sky is blue and I saw cherry blossom on my trip to work today. Elle est belle, la vie. Truly.
