Hello Forkers January 2017 Edition

Thank you for explaining, Fidget. Good luck with finding the right bungalow. House moving can be stressful.

I would like to sell my French farmhouse, too big and very isolated, but my children inherited a share of my late husband's part and I can't sell it without their permission, which 2 of them won't give. French inheritance laws, I've probably explained before. When we are really to old to cope we could move to our cottage in Norfolk, but I think I would still be liable for some of the bills in France if it isn't sold. My children all live in France.

Still coughing, but we are going to a pub for dinner, don't feel like cooking. Went for a short walk in the village and met a friend who said this cold and cough has been all round the village anyway. He'd had it for over 2 weeks.

programmes to watch

I love Grantchester, seen it from the beginning. Although the stories are different there is a thread running through all of them. Actually, if truth be told, I find Sidney rather attractive!

Watched the first Halcyon last night, about a hotel in the war, enjoyed it, looks promising.

Also watched Ethel and Ernest last night, brilliant, made me cry.

Morning all.

Know how you feel Topbird. I actually like sheets and blankets, more adjustable, but OH likes a duvet so when we got together I changed. He's also a duvet thief and rolls himself up like a sausage roll!

Better night, did wake and cough but took Benelyn Night Syrup. First cough medicine that has helped.

Don't take them all at once, Dove!

I've missed why Fidget is moving, too. Or was it on another thread?

My mother worked at Bletchley Park in the war. Never talked about it, was horrified when she saw a programme on TV about it. She also went to Ceylon to work with Japanese decoding. She was in the Wrens, lied about her age so was really too young but she passed the intelligence tests and no questions were asked. Read English at Cambridge when the war was over.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Mine did that once when I used to use paraffin heaters. I cut down the wick and it was better. So much easier now that OH has installed electricity.

Happy Birthday, Bracken. I hope you are feeling well on your special day.

What is your weather like? (2)

I hope your OH's hand is OK and not painful today, daydaisy.

Grey and a bit drizzly in Norfolk.

Yes, Hazel, yukky. Is yours better now, if so, how long did it take?

OH has gone to get his hair cut so I've got up and come down to have a go at the laptop. I find it easier than the iPad.

I like the bypass ones. I have one that is over 30 years old but I don't know the make. OH had anvil ones which I didn't like, but maybe that was because they were extendible and one arm kept extending when you didn't want it too. I've just bought him some bypass Fiskars ones which seem good.
