HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

Posted: 12/11/2016 at 21:57

Glad you got back safely Dove, at least I don't think you had to go on the dreaded A11, saw on yesterday's news there'd been another fatal accident. When we've driven up or down to Stansted there always seems to be an accident.


Wretched Alexa cat has dug up one of my troughs of pansies again. What is it about pansies? She does it every year about this time. I've had to put a fence around the sundial bed. We have a dark tortoiseshell stray cat who is eating her food. She eats outside, don't have a catflap. Dark cat runs away very fast when it sees me.

Going to friends for lunch tomorrow.

Strictly is back!

Len often agrees with me too!


I thought Danny looked gorgeous and danced beautifully, but I think I just preferred Louise, she was amazing, acting as well as dancing.


I actually found Ed quite fun, usually the buffoon of the show gets on my nerves but he has really tried and has improved.

I'm off to watch Strictly too. Unfortunately I didn't get supper in the oven early enough so I'll have to record some of it while I dish up.

That's a good job on that bed, Obelixx. Albizzias are lovely, I have one but it's in the wrong place among other trees, over 20 years old now, also the beigey pink. I prefer the brighter pink.


Mabel sounds adorable and funny.


I hope Liri didn't get rained on.

Wasn't actually morning here when I said that!


Good heavens that's a big rock, just looked back at the photos.


Internet is being very slow.

Morning all.


The leaves have suddenly fallen off the copper beech in the wind and rain. Need sweeping off the lawn, but the lawn is sodden.


The pump for the pool cleaner seems to have packed up, more expense. The man still hasn't got back to me for changing the filter which is leaking.

What have you lost?

I lost my wedding ring nearly 30 years ago when gardening. Two years later my daughter found it on the gravel garden path. We were going to move house, so just in time!

I don't get modern art either. I looked up those artists and just can't see it. We went to a lovely art gallery, Picturecraft, in Holt that had an exhibition of Kieron Williamson and other landscape painters that I like. But all too expensive. I like realistic landscapes, even a bit impressionist, but real.

Sweet Pea Know How

Good heavens Fairygirl, you still have sweet peas in November! I have the opposite problem in SW France. Once the weather heats up into the 30°s in July my sweet peas go brown and that's the end of them. I think they prefer being too cold to being too hot. Not sure why I keep bothering but I love the scent. I don't know anyone else who grows them in this area.

In France, at least in this area, every village has a war memorial with list of names too. Each village has a service by the memorial on the 11th Nov.


I seem to have been doing paper/computer work all day, except for when a friend called round. Not raining, should be outside.
