Welcome to the attic of my mind. Mind the stairs, click the light on and have a rummage around my thoughts on writing, the art of everything second-hand, the natural world, music . . . just about everything. Probably not much about sport.

Mad weather, potatoes all coming up, flowers everywhere, hope we are not in for horrible shock . . .
Strange and wonderful clouds at the moment: a continual invasion of other planetary space vessels. We saw some really extraordinary specimens yesterday that appeared to feature gun turrets, along with a cloud-scape that looked exactly like the sand appearing under ebbing waves.
Wish I could find the cloud spotter book Penny gave us - would like to read up about these rare cloud forms

'tis the season...
In the same creeping fashion as a sore throat announces the invasion of a cold . . . that time is almost upon us.
Not that I'm a miserable nightshirt-wearing old git, well not most of the time, but REALLY.
I used to revel in the warm comfort of the thought that Chrimbo did not start in this part of the world until December.
Festive ads have started edging their way in amongst the yogurt, cheese and insurance varieties; Jardifort (local garden centre) has joined the madness of non plant, glittery twaddle, and even the dog-washing shop has a window display of festive-phrase dog outfits . . .
I was trapped in leclerc earlier - while trying to buy some A4 paper - in the massive queues (panic buying to last out the bank holiday?) and was interested to note that someone next to me was indeed buying chocolate Santa figurines. Is it me, or does it seem odd to be doing this when we are not even half way through November?
Anyway must be off to look up some xmas pud recipes that we were discussing this morning . . .
. . . to be merry, tra la la la la la la

Short blog for two reasons.
1/ To join me in admiring this wonderful work of nature's and Max's (organic veg-producer) art.
2/ to announce a new band on the rockin' music scene of the Aude. Featuring great dance melodies of the fab four, Bowie, blues greats and more..more...
Call us if you are needing party music...info in full soon.
