Hello Forkers - February 2017 Edition

Be careful Dove. That's how I cracked my rib. Cough almost gone now, but pain in rib is still there, not as acute as it was though.

Morning all.


Glad you enjoyed Wisley, Chicky. You sound perkier.


Don't know how you managed tennis, Dove, brave of you, must be motivated.


The wind has died down, it started up again yesterday afternoon and evening, and the sun is shining, but it's cold.


A friend gave me an Olbas pastille when I was coughing, tasted so disgusting it must have done some good!

Poured this morning, howling gale this afternoon, still having gusts. Electricity has flickered but not gone off.

SGL, I think a radiator is warmer but heated towel rails are good for drying towels. In France we have a radiator and in our Norfolk cottage we have a heated towel rail, but we now have a little fan heater for the bathroom in Norfolk as it wasn't warm enough. But you don't need the bathroom very heated all the time so it works well.

Glad I persevered with Apple Tree Yard, more interesting now, even gripping.

Oh dear, the howling gale is starting up again. Maybe we were in the eye of the storm. And I'd put the garden furniture back.

Hazel, my lurgy lasted nearly a month and I am still tired. But I have damaged a rib with the coughing and sometimes it wakes me up. I've had OK days and tired days for the last week or two.

The pond wasn't covered with tarpaulin, that was the pond liner. Friend's labrador made a hole in it when he decided to have a swim. I gave up, but I suppose I could make a bog garden. It's got all overgrown and there is a huge bramble un the inaccessible side. I rather lost interest.

It should thicken up in the spring when the sun is on it and the days are longer. It does get sun?

I have had the lurgy, though.


Kitty, one day that bucket will be blown across the lawn by the wind and you will go after it and tread in the forgotten cat turd!
