HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 21/03/2014 at 08:14

Morning all. Cloudy, raining. Wonder if my dressage lesson will be cancelled? My horse was terrified of a cute red squirrel out riding yesterday!

I know Stacey.  I never pay until I am totally satisfied with the work.  

 

We had an extension built on our house in France some years ago and were not happy with some of it and they had overrun by 5 months because they kept not turning up, then they charged us more when we had a written contract with money and time limits. So, on advice from a notaire, we didn't pay the last bills. The builders took us to court. It took 8 years, French courts are incredibly slow. We won, but my first husband was no longer there then as he died from a heart attack.

I'll second what clk has just said. That's what I was thinking when I read the question.

 Sunny, 19° today, but they say it will be cool and wet next week. Had to water troughs and tubs.

Hope you are OK, Fidget, after falling backwards.

First day of spring!

Sorry about your Mum, KEF. Hope she's better soon. We'll think of you while you're not here and hope to hear from you soon.

Just watched Line of Duty, but missed the first two episodes so I never really understood it.

Growing Sweet Peas

Posted: 19/03/2014 at 18:38

Planted out my sweet peas. Only 12 of my original 36 that I asked about germinated. I sowed more, about half of them have come up. They have been in a cold frame for the last 2 weeks. 18° today, sunny. Looked happier in the cold frame, don't think they liked the windowsill.

Can't grow camellias , alkali soil. Tried one in a pot once, friend had given me a beautiful terracotta pot but it broke in winter and the camellia died.

Planted my potatoes and sweet peas this afternoon.

This morning we went to a talk on the French Revolution by the Historical Society (but they are English ex-pats), about an hour's drive away. Really good bring and share lunch.

He has often been asked but, as far as I know, only sent pics twice in the last 16 months. Come on Verdun! Have you a camera?
