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 wish to express my appreciation to you just for bailing me out of such a circumstance. After researching throughout the world-wide-web and obtaining thoughts which are not powerful, I assumed my entire life was over. Being alive minus the strategies to the difficulties you've sorted out as a result of your good posting is a critical case, and the ones that would have adversely affected my entire career if I hadn't noticed your web page. That understanding and kindness in playing with everything was invaluable. I'm not sure what I would've done if I had not encountered such a thing like this. I can now look forward to my future. Thank you so much for the professional and results-oriented guide. I won't think twice to suggest your web page to any person who needs and wants guidelines on this matter.

I precisely wished to thank you so much yet again. I do not know the things I could possibly have implemented without the entire concepts contributed by you directly on that topic. It became a very frightening difficulty in my opinion, but understanding a new well-written fashion you dealt with the issue forced me to leap over fulfillment. Extremely happy for your advice and even pray you find out what an amazing job your are accomplishing educating people today through your blog post. Probably you have never met all of us.
