Very hot here in south-west France and the job for the weekend is picking, podding(?) and freezing peas.
Come to Canada, you can shell mine! I bought a couple bushels and so far haven't found anyone to pay to shell for me.

I have an impromptu road trip this weekend after the party, probably an over nighter. I purchased a new carriage and have to flat bed it home. I can hitch a team finally!

Thanks for the weekender Dee! Someone just mentioned the minions post and it is exactly what I need to hear and mostly - accept and understand - right now.

I'm in this on off relationship for 2 years and he keeps telling me that every little problem is caused by me. I know I have a long list of problems but I am in therapy and handling most of them pretty okay these days. He's never done therapy but is convinced his problems don't affect others. And if they let them affect them, it's their problem which they need to work on.
Anyway, I think I need to let go of him because he is not able to maintain a relationship and not willing to change for it.

But he is what I always wanted in many ways. We have this connection and he can make me feel happier than I ever was when things go well. And I am so scared of never feeling like that again. He's also the only person I ever really felt emotionally close to and like he could "get" me. And I am just as scared that I will never find this again either.

Letting go is just so hard when there's no hope. And I don't have any right now.

Welcome to Weekenders Kevlarsjal and Lascaux!

Hi Caramel.

LOL TJV. As earworms go the Isley's are not bad at all.

It is 6.35 am here . When I was still drinking, 3 Fridays out of every 4 I would be waking up hungover at this time, contemplate not going in to work, realise that I had to and so I would struggle in looking like I had slept in a rubbish skip. At this point I would be vowing to "give it a miss tonight, meaning laying off the booze. By mid morning after several cups of coffee I would be looking at my watch and just hoping for the day to pass. Lunchtime I would eat and feel that I might actually make it through the day. 3pm and I begin to anticipate home time. 4pm and as home time looms I start to anticipate being able to drink again 5.30pm, I have made up my mind to drink and grab a takeaway pizza or similar and hit the bottle by 7pm and another weekend is lost to drink and hangovers. Only addiction can make such a fool out of me. I am so much happier being with you folks.

Thanks for the invite MyLittleHorsie. Its my sixtieth this year so looking for a special holiday! And shelling is the word for peas - thankyou.
The mornings are pretty special for most of us I think but I really appreciate the evenings too - sitting under the stars shelling peas (we have a lot). A bit of a potter about watering at 23.00hrs. Who knew ?
