    First, to Joy, what's going on on the left side, just behind the counter with the chairs? You took out that cupboard and replaced it with what?

    Bitsy, hi! Joy and QDM and Karen and Lindsey and I are somewhat in touch on Facebook, but it's not like the conversations we had here. I am in touch with PossumGirl, if you remember her, and in fact DH and I visited her in France a year ago, in early October. A detached retina sounds like not much fun; how did they treat that? DH and I have been busy with gardening, environmental stuff and grandkids; we've had a pretty good year! I am still trying to cook French; I made hachis parmentier the other night and my older DGD loved it - because it had mashed potatoes and cheese, of course.

    Can you email me how I can find you guys on facebook? Yes I do remember PossumGirl - is she on FB too? Detached retina wasn't much fun - they kinda stretch it and sew it back up and put a gas bubble in the eye. Had to lie face down for 2 weeks. This allowed the bubble to keep the retina back to help heal and not tear again. My vision isn't as good now in that eye and I don't see straight vertical lines anymore it's kind of wavy - due to stretching it back up. At least I can see that's the main thing. hachis parmetier sounds wonderful but I'm still trying to lower my cholesterol without taking meds. Not working very well and I might have to give in when I see the doc in a couple of weeks. We managed to keep alive out peppers and tomato plants through the brutal summer we had. I'm not sure if I will bother with a fall garden this year. Working full-time doesn't leave much time for too many other things. Nice to hear from you.

    Good morning Brit and Rattie, Sorry to hear about your eye, Brit, hope that its all o.k. now, sounds like you had a bit of an up and down year.

    Rattie, I remember Possum Girl, tell her we are back on line, she might just come back icon_smile.gif

    I had to laugh, that 'thing' to the far left, where there was a free standing cupboard (that pic was taken while the previous owners were still in the house) its the cats climbing frame, icon_lol.gif and I had shoved their two beds on there to get them out of the way, I then found out they LOVE them there, they sit and watch me doing things in the kitchen!

    Yes, Brit, its a much niver kitchen now. as for coming back to Australia, its really great, takes a while to resettle though, and just get used to things again.

    We really enjoyed all the years that we had overseas, and are happy that we did something like that, the memories are just wonderful.

    we were lucky we were able to find a house we liked (that was not too big) and actully get in before the cts cme out of quarantine….. we did not have our furnishings at that time, it was still on the high seas in a container!

    but we did not bring out bed with us as we decided it needed to be updated, and as our last house had the fridge/freezer built in, we bought new stuff, plus the washing machine. so when we first moved in we had a bed, some linen, the fridge, the kitchen was done.

    we had to buy an extra lounge suite for the family room anyway, and we used the outside patio table inside. the heating worked, so it was just fine. camping indoors!!! with just a few cheap utensils, and plates etc.

    Thre was quite a lot we wanted to do to the house, its only 11 years old, but nothing had been changed, curtains, carpets, we had the kitchen hall and dining area tiled. etc and the money we saved compared to other houses that were priced so much higher, so we were able to put in the swimming pool.

    well I guess thats enough for you icon_smile.gif what have you been up to. better go and do some work in TOTM. hugs, and its great to be back

    Glad to hear you are happy back in Australia,must be nice being back close to family. Your house looks lovely. Our next one will definitely have a pool - especially if we stay in Texas for many more years. We still don't know where we are going to end up when we retire ... which isn't going to be any year soon! Part of me is wanting to go back to Europe small town/village walk to shops etc. We'll see. OK work to do. Take care.

    Bitsy, I sent you a Zmail. PG is on FB but she doesn't post much there; she has a blog about her town and her life in France, though.

    Thanks so much for the zmail. Let us stay in touch. It's a shame as I prefer the thread here and I detest how FaceBook interacts. Oh well. Life goes on. Take care

    Hi everyone....can I just poke my nose in here, and ask if anyone has a good recipe for Croissants? I buy one every morning on my way to work, and figure that at London prices I can save some money by making my own! icon_biggrin.gif

    I have never wanted to bother with croissants because I can get a reasonable facsimile at the supermarket, but here are two sources that look good:

    and seems to have several recipes for croissants, including a whole wheat version, if you do a search; my supermarket carries a partially whole wheat variety and I don't feel quite so sinful eating that!

    Thanks for that River Rat. I don't think I anticipated how much work was involved! Or maybe not so much work, as time icon_biggrin.gif

    I think I might just have to search the shops to see if I can find one that's as good as the artisan baker on the way to work!

    I found all the steps really off-putting, and breads/pastries aren't my strong point anyway. That's why I just buy them; they're not expensive at the supermarket and we sometimes have them for breakfast with yogurt and maybe some chèvre à tartiner, which we adore. Our supermarket has gotten fairly sophisticated in its offerings!

    Good morning everyone! Sandie good to see you here, I have never tried making croissants either. but when we were in France, and shopping in Carrfoure we always went for the ones with margerine not butter, bought them once my mistake and we thought they were nicer!

    Last night I had to go to bed early as I got a total back spasm again, I get it a few times a year, and you can feel it starting, it gets soo bad that, I end up rolling on the floor trying to stretch my back as it grabs me right around and often is so bad it makes me physically sick anyway bck in the UK the doc gave me muscle relaxants to take when it happens and to get to bed asap! it works after a while too.

    Its odd, as the cats immediatly knew something was not 'right" and were with me within minutes on the bed - so sweet really

    Hey Joy...hope your back eases up soon. I can sympathise with you. I've had back problems for many years, it used to come and go but now it's almost constantly painful. icon_cry.gif What a shame those lovely cats can't fetch and carry for you as well! icon_biggrin.gif

    Hope everything's going well with you...I'm afraid I don't come on here very much at the moment. I have a ton of recipes which I've printed out that I will get around to one day, plus all the books I have, and then I always seem to get sucked in to buying a magazine when I'm browsing the shelves in the supermarket!

    Hi there Sandie, yes, book stalls or supermarkets are the place to sell their cookbooks etc, so easy to fall into that trap. yes, my back is loads better thanks, bad abcks are really the pits as there is not much you can do about it.

    We had to Pick up our daughter Annes oldest and bring her home last night. this go slow strike is dreadful, it was late leaving Mackay, so she missed the connecting flt to perth, and then on top of that the next flt was delayed for 5 hours... so she missed her connection up to Karratha, so she stayed with us overnight and we had to get her to the airport at 5.30 this morning. she was upset about it as its the first time that she has flown on her own, but its all worked out o.k. she got there no problems.
