They can be dangerous, they jump from anywhere onto the road, also can carry Lyme Desease, which I caught last year from a tick. If your very unfortunate to knock one down you have to report to the Gendarme and stay with it until they arrive, it's quite a long drawn out process.....but they are love...

It is lovely to see Deer, we see a lot of Roe Deer where we are nearly every day, they come on our land, and I still get the thrill of seeing one as tho it's my first time, we hear them bark in our wood, I love the wildlife here. It must be great to see them down in the PO especially with their young.

I have always signed everything in my married name and have no objection to doing so either in this or my previous marriage.

We had lunch at the Ritz in Paris, meal was lovely, but had better, but was more fascinated at how the other half lived, a lady on the next table asked the Sommelier to get a bracelet she has seen in a display case in the corridor, and she said she would have it and sat eating her lunch with it on, ...

We went to a Hippopotame restaurant on Monday night, (not local to PO) hubby has been in one before in the PO and enjoyed what he had, although it was lunchtime, so I don't know if that makes a difference, anyway, I thought the food was "OK" but very overpriced for what you got. I wouldn't go again,...

Ryanair restrictions

I have forgotten what can be allowed as hand luggage on the flights, i.e the liquids etc, is it that you are allowed to carry 100ml of liquids in the clear bags, can't find it on the Ryanair site, my sister has just bought some 100ml perfume but wondered if she can take that back in her hand luggage...
