Hello Forkers - May Edition

Morning all.

The concert was good, the hall (an ex-church) was full. One of the choir members plays the flute, she's very good. The piano player was excellent too, English, was a church organist when he was only 12 yrs old.

Taking Lena (horse) to daughter 2 today. I expect I will miss her, but I'm too arthritic to ride now.

I was hoping Dove's ankle would feel better this morning. I expect it will need an Xray. Sounds as though her OH will have to plant the runner beans.

Oh dear Dove, hope the pain eases soon.

Been a busy day today, starting off with oversleeping and so missing one of my morning mugs of coffee. I was helping on a charity stall in a Brocante today, that's like a Bric a Brac sale or a car boot sale. Then OH was singing in a concert at 5pm in a town over an hour away and I went to watch, no, I mean listen. Home to cook a late dinner, have recorded Chelsea as we ate outside. It was 32° today.

Morning all.
I've kept my old Kitchen Devil breadknife in the GH for years.

You could have cut the baling twine, Forestedge. The straw does spring out a bit at each end, but it's in sort of wafers (that what we called it at the riding stables) so it doesn't really matter and you would have been removing them anyway to put around the strawberries. It's really difficult pulling it out by hand if you don't cut the string.

I'm off to help in a brocante sale in a local village, bit like a car boot sale I think.

Crikey, that's hardly anything! I suppose she's allowed to be off sick but won't get paid.

We went to the Wok place for lunch. It's buffet style. Take what you want for one price.We were a bit shocked by the couple on the table next to us. They took six plates of food and when they had eaten they calmly got out a plastic bag and put the rest of the food into it to take home!

How sweet of you to understand Lants. I did have watermelon as well as the young waiter told me it was ready, but there are no calories in watermelon and it makes you feel bloated, no, I mean nicely full.

I am far too vain to wear shorts  After having had 4 children my tummy is the opposite of flat. I wear an old summer dress to garden in when it's hot. I am also too cowardly to wax my legs, ouch, I run a razor over them when I'm in the shower. I am too well endowed up top to go bra less. Dove made me laugh , but I don't think I'm quite at that stage yet!

Been shopping. Had lunch at the Wok place. I wanted fruit for pud as I'm trying to make an effort, having gained 4lbs when we were in England. But no water melon left, so while they were cutting it up I helped myself to profiteroles and chocolate sauce  They shouldn't have left them next to the empty watermelon bowl.

Morning all. Looks like being a hot sunny day.

We are off to the supermarket. Wonder if they have Mivis, haven't seen them for years. But we can't buy ice cream today as we are going to the Chinese buffet place for lunch. I call it the Wok place as they have lots of raw meat, fish and veg that you choose and they cook it for you in a Wok with the sauce of your choice.

Forestedge, I've used 5 year old bean seeds and they've germinated, it must have been the watering.
