Trisha says that she’s been married forever to the same man, is mother to 3 lovely daughters and grandmother to 4 delightful grandsons and 3 beautiful granddaughters.
Trisha blogs about the weather, good or otherwise, a fair bit….
Last Night The Wind Was Horrendous • Sunday. A wet, quiet and blustery day • Today has been the second wet day this week • Today it has rained and rained • Today it has been raining, all day, not very nice at all • Wind and rain and thunder and lightning • Wet Wednesday • Wednesday. Sun has been shining, wind has been absent for a change • Today has been a glorious sunny day. Got laundry sorted • Another sunny day. How lovely for this time of the year • Another glorious sunny day • Today – another sunny day in Western France
But, there is an awful lot more to the blog than just a weather report.
Trisha manages to show us an honest view of life in France by involving us witht he ups and downs of her family life and the lives of the people who come to visit her. An example might be… I DON’T like to hear my daughter and her partner arguing over such trivial things and I told them so today.
Well… Well said Trisha! Too many people don’t have the guts to say anything about the behaviour of other family members. I can almoist hear the sigh of relief in this post, aptly named… Peace!
But, once again, to categorise this blog as the diary of a a truly grumpy old bird. No, no. This is so much more than that – just take a look at French TV vs Freeview to see what I mean.
Posts like those remind me that the sun doesn’t always shine in France, that not all families are all alike (in a Tolstoyian sense) and that it takes guts to say so publicly.
So, my advice is… join Trisha in a glass of cold Rosé, pop into An ‘Old Biddies’ Life and have a good old grouse about the bluddy weather and our bluddy families!
All the best
