HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 26/01/2014 at 18:19

Living in Dordogne we are lucky enough to have a swimming pool, fairly common here. Once I went to see family in England and a friend came to see my horses daily. She found a baby wild boar, drowned in the pool, so she fished it out and laid it on the lawn, then forgot it. When I came home a few days later it reeked! Weather in mid 30's. She then rang me to say she'd left it there because it looked so cute and she thought I might like to see it. I had to dispose of it and it was full of maggots! YUK!

I am listening KEF. Love pork crackling, but are you saying that because it's hard to find in France? They remove it and tie white soggy fat around the joints. Then they boil the skin and serve it with haricots (beans), YUK.

There is something funny with the RSPB site, it keeps saying page is unavailable. Too many people have been counting birds perhaps.

Dove's disguise had to be Miss Marple for guessing Toronto. I am I the last to gather that? Of course Miss Marple is a lot older than 27.

Gosh, planters are bigger than they look in the photos.

Morning all. Sorry I wasn't there last night (at Verdun's neighbours!), although someone offered to beam me there, was that KEF? Memory like a sieve now I'm over 27. Italy Unpacked was on the telly and it's a long way for me.

Bill, what does "otnorot" mean?

Those haggis were so cute.

I don't think puncdoc should be lying in a flower bed at this time of night, he'll catch his death of cold and hasn't he been unwell recently? Or was that an accident, or both? Someone better go and get him and give him a hot drink. Verdun??

Today I feel so happy....

Thanks everyone, it's great, did I say he's only 22?

Dove, please would you send me a PM with your diet secrets, I'd love to look like that too. Thanks.

Apple Tree prognosis

Posted: 24/01/2014 at 17:49

If you don't really want the apples and the tree isn't very well then I'd get rid of it. Since 1958 is pretty old, but I believe the original Bramley apple tree is still alive, but I've forgotten the date!

I haven't posted for only a day or two and you've all been having such a jolly time and written so much!

Went to an informal cocktail party last night, delicious nibbles, going to a birthday party tomorrow evening and having guests to Sunday lunch. So having a busyish social time at the moment. Well, what can you do? It just pours and pours, no hope of gardening.
