Hello Forkers . November 2017

Posted: Yesterday at 14:39

Been shopping. Now have pressies for 7 grandchildren, 4 to go but 2 of those I will have to order from Amazon.


Off to Norfolk tomorrow. Sorry about your cold, Dove, mine is almost gone apart from the usual residual cough.

Strictly is back!

I thought Jonny was looking tired too. But he can be proud of himself to get so far, that would be a good result even if he weren't handicapped.


I miss Len and Brucie too. I think some of the music for the ballroom dances is too modern.

Morning all. Happy holiday Hosta.


We are off to town to make a start on Christmas shopping for grandchildren.  Scared the things I want will have gone by the time we come back from Norfolk.

The rainforest and reef sounded wonderful, I hope you enjoy Brisbane too, Chicky.


Liked that, RG, of course dogs have souls, no one has a more soulfull expression than a dog.


Don't worry Wonky! Was a small church with heating and my cold is on the way out. How is yours? Those boots sound great. I always put insoles in mine.


Been glued to the TV this evening, Strictly, Blue Planet and Howard's End.

Had homemade veg soup for lunch. Sausages tonight.


Have been putting the new oval mounts into the frames with the 2 family portraits of 2 great great aunts that got damaged in the flood. They are only drawings in pencil and pastel, but I'm quite fond of them. There is also one of my great great grandmother but she is in a different room.


Carried a load of logs up and stacked them by the woodburner and cleaned the sitting room. Logs are carried up because the house is on a slope, lots of steps between rooms and the garden is terraced.

I didn't have a Sunday sleep in Pat. Church on Sunday mornings. Getting there and back, the service, coffee afterwards, takes about 31/2 hours. The further away church today.

Strictly is back!

Dealt with washing and paperwork this morning then we went to the annual Christmas Fair, nearly an hour away, for the C of E. I enjoy it because we always meet people we know and I buy homemade crackers, very pretty, and a small Christmas pudding, just for OH and me. OH won 2 rather mediocre raffle prizes. One was a book about wine making around the world, but I expect it was in someone's cupboard for a bit as it was last updated in 2002.

There was a frost this morning but it was sunny so I put the washing out, but it was still damp, now on radiators.

Have planted the last of my pots with violas.

Glad I took that elderly rescue horse to keep my mare company, he's getting on so well with her. She has never been so friendly with another horse.
