#TBT & Yeah It’s Friday!

ALC Pool

I seem to be a day stepped out this week!!!!  It has been one of those weeks.  We have had two Zoom meetings in the evening about getting the swimmers back into the pool and as much as we try and sort out one set of issues, something else comes up.  We have decided that we need to get the older swimmers back in first as they can understand the social distancing and directions and see how things work.  Lots of big companies have been planning their opening since week 1 of Lockdown and it is only now that employees are back are they seeing what works and what doesn’t and how to change it, so I think that is what we are going to have to do with the swimmers.  However until our Leisure Centre provider comes up with their rules and how they want to deal with us, we are in limbo!!!



Our very good friend Corinne, above and below, passed away last week. We and the Boys have known them both for over twenty years and will miss her greatly.

DH, Youngers and I went to visit her and Gordon in their new holiday home in the South of France during the Easter break in 2014. 


This is their home and it was lovely and warm.


This was their local church, the entrance.


One day whilst we were there Gordon and Corinne took us to Saint-Émilion for the day which is quite a small place but every other store is a wine shop!!!!  We had a lovely lunch outdoors and then a walk around.  The above is one of the oldest parts.  It is called The Cadène Arch which dates back to the 13 Century and is located on the Rue de la Cadène. It was designed to monitor people moving from the different sections of the town.

Sadly because of the current situation we are unable to go over the France to see Gordon but will do as soon as we can.  He is going to come back to the UK eventually.

Another friend also passed away the same week and her funeral is on June 30th.  We are able to go to be in the grounds but not actually at the service.  Neither of the Ladies had this horrible virus, they both had conditions which were being treated but sadly they passed.



I am glad it is Friday today.  It has been raining most of the week but hopefully the weekend will be a little better and we have some warmer weather next week.  I am ever hopeful that next week will be a little calmer, quieter and I can get some of my things done!!!  That sort of went out of the window this week!!!

I hope you lovely lot will have a great weekend, whatever you are up to, and whatever you are able to do wherever you are!

Hugs & love Susie xx

    I am so sorry for the loss of your friends. That is hard at any time, but to not really be able to go to their memorial services makes it more difficult. I hope that the swimming center figures out what to do soon so you can make plans. Summer is arriving right on time here with temperatures in the 90’s. I hope you have a wonderful birthday and can celebrate with all your “boys”!!

    We are so sorry for the loss of your friends. Miss Corinne and Mr Gordon sure do have a lovely home. We love seeing your historical buildings. They are so beautiful and so old! Happy Birthday, Miss Susie☺
