So, in late May we went to Axminster to suss out carpeting for the new home, and take in a meal at The River Cottage, but no pictures of that`; fortunately, we took a side-trip to the coast at Sidmouth.

Nice. You should get down there for the Folk Festival Ray... Assuming that you haven't.
Only a day day left of this year's mind you.

Taste is very good. My daughter works in Field's across the road and I have to be waiting with an ice cream for when she finishes work.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

we just completed the most long-drawn out move in history this very day. Now in Taunton, so day trips to Siddy are going to be rarer, but if I get back it will be Taste rather than the views that will draw me back.
Hoping to restart here in a day or two. Although I shall have to find my desktop, and indeed a desk to put it on, to do it properly.

Seems weird to be back in Sandford in June after I left the village for good, and with much bitterness and rancour, not to mention extreme physical mental and emotional stress, just under a week ago. Anyway, here goes, history already, usual suspects, usual places

Just one part today. The search for all the various bits of my desktop goes on, and until I find them I can't edit any more photos. I may be forced into the archives again, and that means trouble.

Rolling (with and w/o cow's arse is a more recent favorite of mine. It is one of the images I have in my head when I think of the English countryside. Nice to see it in front of me on a screen instead. Beautiful work as usual and your captions are a delight.

Yay, I found the missing IT and we're back on the desktop standard, even if it is in fact on a sideboard, and I'm sitting on an upholstered footstool with a keyboard on my knees. Six months of secretarial college for this?!? Anyway, the first half of June, shuttling between Taunton and Sandford...
