The clocks went back last night, the definitive marker for Autumn and Winter. However we have the most amazingly warm and sunny weather during the day time although the nights are very cold which is perpetuating the confusion in the garden!  The frost we had 3 nights ago put paid to the dahlias, begonias and geranium flowers, but the brussels are coming on a treat! Spicy parsnip soup was on the menu last week and also a wonderful new recipe for 'Borscht'!
Now, we think that Borscht is a Russian beetroot soup, generally served cold, don't we! (Rhetorical!) It is in fact a sort of beef stew WITH beetroot. The recipe came direct from the Urals! No, not sent with the Meerkats! (in joke) but from the wife of our wonderful Russian Workawayer Artie, who stayed with us for 10 days. It's a rich, beefy, spicy soup with onions and garlic and cabbage and potatoes AND beetroot all cooked together over a few hours. Delicious! It's on the menu!
The last couple of months have brought more wonderful characters passing through our doors and we have had even more engaging evenings with our guests from America, Canada, Italy, Germany, Holland and of course the UK.
That's all the good news, but we have an enforced delay on BnB2 as Geoff's herniated disc decided to misbehave again 3 days ago. He ended up in hospital on a pain/anti-inflammatory drip for 12 hrs and now we have to pursue an end to this ongoing 12 year itch with a consultancy with a surgeon to hopefully find a solution to this re-occurring problem (not to mention my tennis elbow, nothing to do with tennis) which I have been suffering from for weeks now. Consequently we will probably have to take a few weeks off to recuperate before we can go further with the building works and it means we will be unable to take Christmas bookings for BnB2. However, BnB1 is up for grabs!
The addition to our family of a puppy Border Collie Freddie, couldn't have been worse timed given the ailments right now, but I have to say Freddie is a delight and well worth the effort (despite the pain!). He is learning quickly and is becoming a real friend to Henri. Henri might not agree with me but that's the advantage of being able to impose human thoughts onto animals! Pictures next time as Freddie is growing by the minute!

I want to show some thanks to you for bailing me out of this type of difficulty. As a result of looking out through the world-wide-web and meeting thoughts which are not powerful, I was thinking my entire life was done. Existing without the approaches to the issues you have resolved through your main article is a critical case, and the kind which might have badly affected my career if I had not encountered your web page. Your good ability and kindness in handling all the things was excellent. I am not sure what I would've done if I had not come across such a stuff like this. It's possible to at this point look ahead to my future. Thank you so much for this specialized and effective guide. I will not be reluctant to propose your blog to any person who would need assistance about this issue.
