Hello Forkers - February 2018

Posted: 01/02/2018 at 09:02

I was wondering what has happened to Chicky, no posts for a bit. Missed her. But now I've heard from her, she's OK, just having a break from the forum. There are several people I liked here who've gone, some left, some joined the Rezzers thread instead. I suppose that's just what happens with forums.

Morning all.

People are sounding cheerful this morning.

I wonder where Lily P is going on holiday, warm like Hosta or cold like Fidget?

I stayed at son 1's yesterday until the evening. OH went to choir practice. Had cuddles with baby, but he's had a tummy bug and this morning mine's not too good. Also 2 year old was starting a cold and being grumpy and runny nosed. 3yr old was sweet and cuddly.

Have you stopped work there now, Wonky, or are you off sick? Such bad luck with your hands.

Morning all.

Glad your dental treatment was OK, Joyce.

Those trees look very pretty, Dacha.

Internet is being painfully slow.

Another dull day in Dordogne, at least it's not raining. France has been badly hit with floods.

Going to lunch with Son 1, the dentist, will babysit the little grandsons this afternoon while he goes to the garage, problem with car. He has the afternoon off.

May go to the SM this morning. Going to a patchwork sewing for the church curtain group this afternoon. Sky is grey.

Bucket list

""Err" was that travelling with one love or is there a story to it?" - Frank asked on previous page. Answer, the travelling was with 2nd OH. I've had 2 loves, but first one died when I was 47, otherwise the trip to Venice might have been with him. We were too busy bringing up our 4 children then, more family holidays than romantic ones. I was devastated when I lost him but years later I met my 2nd love.

That's lovely, Humblebee, my roses are asleep.

Lovely photos.

We had a Garden Gallery thread in 2017 for our garden photos. I've started one for 2018.

Now that it's a new year I am starting a new thread for our garden photos. I had a look and couldn't find that anyone else has done one.

Things are just starting to move in my garden.

Let’s celebrate our Birthday 2018

Yes, thank you Kitty, I saw that. I left a birthday wish for Dove on it as we used to use it quite a lot, that was part 2, but it's been forgotten lately. Nora decided to stick with this new one.

How do you know we won't be naked, Frank?

I don't have a bucket list. I've done quite a few of the things I wanted to do, like gallop on a beach (did that in Ireland with my daughter), holiday in Corsica, visit the Beth Chatto garden and Bressingham Gardens, go to Venice with a man I love, ditto Tuscany and Florence. I've been to New York and seen the man I love singing with his choir in Carnegie Hall and then we saw Impressionist paintings in the New York Met art gallery and walked in Central Park.

I would have liked to move back to England, but my children and grandchildren all live in France so we have done the next best thing and bought a little cottage in Norfolk and spend time in France and England.

The main thing is good health and a happy life for me and my family.
