Yesterday this years’ batch of parsnip wine was bottled (18 bottles). We should be able to drink it at Christmas.
The lunchtime post included a recorded letter from HSBC stating that my account could not be closed until they were in receipt of my bank cards and chequebook. (Despite HSBC having stated that they did not need these returned!) As LSS had the afternoon off, we drove to Argent-sur-Sauldre where I handed in the items, and had my recorded letter signed and stamped to the effect that the items had been received. Now we wait. Again.
Wildlife diary: A day late, but better late than never. Yesterday morning we saw some movement on the other side of the fence past the pond. The binoculars were employed, and I counted nineteen wild boar – about seven large ones; and the rest were youngsters.
