Mad March weather 2012

Ok, this time last year, we were basking in wonderfully warm Spring sunshine. The birds were singing, garden in bloom, all was lovely.
Today, it's wet, cold, poor plants are struggling to flower, & the hedges are almost devoid of leaves after the minus double figure temperatures we had in February.
I have just heard that it's snowing in central Spain;
The world's gone mad!

French colds & flu!

What can I say about France this week?
Everyone has a cold!
Stinkers one & all, the colds, not the people.
The tissue manufacturers must have set on an extra shift at the factory to meet the demand. The street lights can be dimmed, as the beacons that are red noses are more than sufficient to light the streets at night.
Our cupboards are groaning with all manner of medications, the surgeries are working flat out, as are the pharmacies, and everyone is miserable, including me.
A bientot.
