Hello Forkers ... June Edition

Morning all. It will be another scorcher here. I wish it would rain.

Going for X Rays of knee, hip and spine this afternoon. The agony of the trapped nerve has gone, but I have back ache.

Must go and pick raspberries before it gets too hot. Surprised there is such a good crop in this heat.

Lucky you, Zenjeff, having rain. 34° here yesterday, 35° forecast for today. I hope I have a garden left for my Open Day!

Yes, Victoria, on the 9th July. But still a lot of weeding to do and all the beds need edging. The lawn is a lost cause in the Dordogne climate. I had a very painful trapped nerve last week, Doc says I have arthritis and I'm overdoing it. X Rays today.

Those cakes are so beautiful, you are very talented.

I made cakes for each of my four children's weddings, but they look amateurish compared with yours. Yours are amazing. You could make a career of it.

Site hasn't wanted to give me a window to post on. Maybe it's too hot! 34° here so not as hot as chez Obelixx.

Dove said "Wonky was born in April '76". My first daughter was born in March 76.
Leg has been much better today, but I did take a strong painkiller. But back aches a bit.

OH is home  Having seabass for supper, when I get around to dealing with it.

Went to the SM this morning for supplies, but been taking it easy.

Glad to read that Joyce's OH is home but sad to read about Lily P's eye. It can't be the euphorbia though, must be a secondary infection.

Thank you Joyce, I hope so. I hope you sleep well too. You are being such a brave and loving wife to your OH.

DD I better ring you. I didn't see the lady with tea cups at church as I didn't go because of my painful hip and leg.

Here is update, don' read if it's too boring!

Been to the Doc, not my normal one as his surgery was full to bursting and he doesn't do appointments. Went to another, I know him anyway, he gave me an appointment this evening. The pain was because of a trapped nerve. Treatment is rest and strong painkillers. General aches and pains are arthritis. He gave me a good examination to eliminate other causes of the pain. He said I have arthritis in the right knee, he's pretty sure I have it in the lower spine and he thinks my right hip is arthritic too. I need X Rays for knee hip and spine and he wants them to do spine for osteoporosis too. I have a painful lower vertebra when he touched it in a certain way. Gardening is forbidden for at least 5 days. In a way it was a relief to be told. I always feel I'm being a failure if I complain if something hurts.
