HELLO FORKERS!

Happy Birthday Chicklet.

Lily Pilly asked "Busy I think I may have missed something, are you returning permanently to uk? I thought your family had just moved beside you in France?"

I have lived in France since 85, brought up my 4 children in France and have 9 grandchildren in France. Husband 1 wanted to live in France, I only went for him, but he died in 98. Met 2nd OH in France, he was widowed, moved to France because his wife wanted to. When I met him he was trying to sell his French house to move back to England but he moved in with me instead. He has sold his house now so we have bought a second home in Norfolk, which is where we want to be but I can't sell my French house as the children share it (French inheritance laws) and they don't want to sell it.

In the meantime, 2nd OH was renting a flat in Eastbourne from his DIL which is where most of his stuff is which we are moving to the cottage to Norfolk.

Morning all. Thanks Pat. What are craisins?

Last night's Turkish meal was yummy but such a lot I couldn't finish my main course, lamb, and they wrapped up my Halva to take away. My brother, sister and BIL managed to finish all theirs! OH didn't have pud. It was good to see them, but now we are going to Norfolk we'll see less of them. But my sister often goes to Norfolk on holiday, the Broads this year.

More packing today.

Can you Identify this Jasmine & Share any tips?

4301 Jasmine officianale has finished flowering by September, but I live in SW France. However, I thought it's normal flowering time is June - August. The polyanthum, which is often sold as a house plant, flowers early in the year. Wouldn't you want it in flower for the wedding?

Such gorgeous photos and those lupins are stunning.

What do I do now

Missed this thread, just seen it on the Snowdrop walk thread. I know just how you feel about it Nut. I'm no good at houseplants. Plants live outside in my book. It looks sort of plastic.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Well, I heard you got cold and wet and very muddy, Hosta, so that sounds like gardening to me!

Is that a clivia, Nut? I have a friend who grows them and she offered me one. I'm afraid I refused. She thinks they are gorgeous but they aren't really to my taste.

Hello. We arrived in Eastbourne last night. There was quite a swell on the sea, but I rather like the swaying feeling but hard walking.

Slept badly and the grandchildren wake up so early, flat not very soundproof.

Removal man came this morning with packing materials. Have only packed 5 boxes so far and 2 big bags of bedding. Having coffee break.

Going out this evening for meal in a Turkish restaurant with my sister and her OH and my brother. We'll be further from them in Norfolk. But for years I hardly saw them because of living in France.
