HELLO FORKERS!

Did anyone see the programme about Ireland tonight? Stunning coast line. Wish they'd showed more of Dingle though. They just showed a potato competition. After OH No1 died years ago I took my daughter there for a riding holiday. We'd both been suffered from stress and loss and weren't getting on well. We had a lovely time, galloping on beaches and riding over a mountain, just what we needed.

Lunch guests have gone, dish washer is on.

Been lovely and sunny, but still cold.

I made all the curtains in this house and used to make my daughters' and my clothes when I was younger. I suppose that's the key word "young", had more energy then and worked more quickly.

Morning all. -4°, the world is white here, frost not snow. Is it snow where you are Dove?

I like sewing, hate knitting. Trouble is that my children save up all their sewing and mending jobs for me! And now I have arthritis in my fingers.

Made mincemeat this afternoon, then made first course, salmon pate, and prepared the veg for lunch tomorrow. 8 of us after church, including the vicar.

It's got very cold, think there will be a frost tomorrow.

North Facing Border

I grow hostas, pulmonarias, heucheras (different coloured leaves), aquilegias, epimediums, brunnera (good one is Jack Frost) and Geranium macrorrhizum in my shady places. There are other hardy geraniums that will grow in a north border.

Hugs to Runnybeak.

Was busy this morning booking flights for completion of the cottage in December.

Then we went to an English run Christmas Fair near Riberac. It was fun. I bought a Christmas pudding, haven't made one this year. Had BLT sarnie for lunch, nice back bacon from England, can't buy it here. Also had mulled wine.

I made a loo roll holder from a bit of a cut down tree branch. Cut a 2 inch round and screw a bit of an old wooden handle to it about 35cms long. I let the wood dry before varnishing it, but it split a bit, not that it matters.

Been to supermarket. Going to dinner with son 2, the dentist, tonight. His MIL is staying with them for the weekend. She's French, I like her.

I have heard from Lyn, probably been busy, sure she'll be back. Gardening is winding down now.

Where is Autumn?

But we did have a frost and -4° twice in Dordogne in early October.

We were on holiday in Suffolk in July. Weather was lovely, better than forecast. Have photos of me in summer dresses at Bressingham Gardens and Framlingham Castle. But it did pour at Flatford Mill! I was glad to be in England as it was 35° in Dordogne, too hot for me. We were in Norfolk in September and it was nice - except on my birthday! That day we went to the Broads and had lunch in a pub, wind and rain.
