HELLO FORKERS! October Edition

Posted: 30/10/2016 at 17:35

Been grey and misty all day. We went to a GC this morning, I bought 20 violas for the bank and some Christmas cards. Then we went to an antiques fair this afternoon. There was some good stuff, bit pricey, but all I bought was coffee and cake.

Love lambshanks Lesley. I am being lazy and we are having Sainsbury's ready meals, pulled pork for me and Chinese for OH.

Watching Strictly (yesterday's) tonight.

Off to Yorkshire tomorrow.

Strictly is back!

Oh dear, I'd prefer Anton du Beke.

Please don't try to be grumpy, Dove, you're just fine how you are.

I get grumpy, but it doesn't last long and I don't bear grudges. I tend to forget the horrid times. But I'm not an extrovert cheerful person either.

Probably going to a GC today, to buy Christmas cards! That's if they do them in Norfolk like they do in East Sussex. French cards are expensive and not that nice, they don't have the tradition of sending them like we do.

Been awake for ages, too light, would much rather have the light at the end of the day. Its like a 2 hour clock change as I was so recently in France. I took the children to school in France in the dark as they started at 8am after 11 yrs. Better to come home in the light, school finished at 5pm.

Hate winter time.

Hello Thankthecat, I haven't had time to join in much recently, but I've been a member of this forum for several years. I live in Dordogne, about 40 mins from Dordogne Damsel. Last December we bought a little terraced cottage in Norfolk. OH and I moved to France because our first spouses wanted to, then they died. I have 4 children and lots of grandchildren in France, which made going back to England difficult. But OH sold his French house and bought the cottage - which is where I am until the 8th.

We've had a lovely afternoon. We went to look at the Suffolk town of Clare and the village Cavendish, both very pretty, and we had a sandwich in a lovely old pub.

Going to a concert in our village church tonight.

Good luck with Bracken's blood test Logan. He's a very handsome dog.

I put a warm cardi over my nightie. But when I post on here from France I'm usually dressed as the only place Internet works in our old stone house in the middle of a forest is in the kitchen.

Thank you Dove. We are aiming to go to the farm shop and nursery next Friday. Do you think they will have pheasant then? Thank you for that very kind offer. It would be lovely to see you again.

I love that cow's fringe. She looks huge, I wonder if she's expecting again?

Does the old house belong to you too Obelixx? Will it be a project?

Back from Norwich, wish I'd seen Dove's post about the farm shop, but I think we'll go next week after we return from Yorkshire, visiting uncle. I love Cromer crab as well as pheasant. Thank you for the link Dove, looks great and there is a GC next door so that will make a nice outing. Maybe see you there? Or maybe not, as you have just been. If there's a café we could meet there if you want to.

Went to M&S. Bought jeans, underwear and a jumper. Their clothes fit so much better than French ones and the prices are reasonable. Also bought really comfy shoes in Hotter. The French have slimmer feet than me.
