Hello Forkers - April edition

Posted: 21/04/2017 at 23:40

Got back from town later than we'd hoped. Dropped off at the Renault garage to pick up my CDs that the old car had swallowed but no one knew anything and the man who did wasn't available. That was a waste of half an hour. I'd wanted to know how to turn the trip meter back to zero, but no one seemed available to help with that either. I must have another search in the 250 page handbook in French.

Then I started to hoover the pool, it seemed cleaner than usual and the water is clear, not green. Couldn't finish as the pool needs to be fuller and it's evaporating already because of fine weather and lack of rain. But the pool cleaner pump has packed up, the man came in the autumn and said he'd order it in the spring so I've sent emails and 2 phone calls and he says he'll come but doesn't know when.

Then there was watering to do, another thing that I shouldn't do so much of in April.

Next was supper in the garden then GW (I never have enough compost for everything), Springwatch (gorgeous) and Versailles (horrid, hope I don't have nightmares). So not time to come here for a chat.
Now it's bedtime. Nighties all.

Who is the culprit?

Same thing happened here in the lower part without a deer fence. There were deer footprints in the bed.

Morning all.

Maybe a bit of all, Hosta. Once you start moving let's hope it will unstiffen and ease up.

We are going into town this morning, OH has appt at the bank and I need a battery for my watch. Then SM then cheap lunch at the Wok place.

Can see why you left your ex, FG! What attracted you in the first place?

I like it where it is, it suits it all matching and makes the patio look cosier.

Lovely, Marion. I've had internet problems, but have just found you again. I look at your thread, when Laptop lets me, but have been finding it hard to post.

Broad beans germinate when it's cold at night. I've just planted my onion sets and sown some carrots which are just showing.

Morning all. I hope I have more energy today.

I wish it would rain, I will be watering again. I woke  too late to see if there was a frost, but thermometer says it went down to 0°.
