HELLO FORKERS! September Edition

Posted: 19/09/2016 at 11:46

Hello all. Our phone line is still down, so I'm at friend's house in the village again borrowing the Internet.

I hope Wonky is feeling better, tummy bugs are horrid.
Can't get crackling here, they take all the skin off the pork. They make a horrid dish with it, they boil beans with pork skin then they say what a wonderful flavour it gives the beans and they eat the white, flacid, greasy boiled skin - YUK!

Obelixx, I'm really enjoying Poldark, mistakes and all, glad they have re-done it.

Here is a photo of the sky before the storm. We were eating dinner outside on the terrace on Tuesday evening, warm and peaceful, then the sky went dark. It came very quickly with tremendous wind, I could hardly shut the kitchen door and the noise was scary.

Hello all, from a friend's Internet. My phone line is still down.

Thank you Runnybeak and Lesley for remembering my birthday. I've just been to the Birthday Thread, , I'm very touched.

Fig chutney is nice with paté.

I've just read back, but too much to comment on and loads of emails waiting.

Thank you very much everyone and special thanks to Runnybeak for the first birthday wish Gorgeous cakes, wish they weren't virtual though!

My phone line is still down.  I'm borrowing a friend's Internet. Hope I can come back soon.

I hope Verdun had a good birthday, seemed to have missed that.

Hello all.

We had a huge storm and a tree fell on my phone line, so I don't have phone or Internet at the moment. Just catching up on emails at a friend's house. Don't know when it will be repaired, don't suppose we are the only ones. I didn't have a mobile either because I lost it at Stanstead, but when the tree was cut up by local farmers I was able to go out and buy a new phone.

So I won't be posting until it's repaired.

What is your weather like? (2)

It's been hot, but I think storms are coming.

I'm sure it is a Mandevilla, I have one.

LL is OK, but not opening her garden anymore. It's still beautiful though.

We had a lovely time with my old forker friend. I first met her at Lily Louise's garden (LL used to post here when she opened her garden to the public) but I hadn't met her OH. He is lovely and got on very well with my OH, despite an age gap. My OH is the older one.

I have an acrylic cardi but I use it as a bedjacket.

Morning all.

That's magnificent, Chicky.

No tea, running water, heating, in a cave, Fairy.

Our friends are going this morning and we are going to a Committee meeting.

Hot today, we had salad for lunch. Lots of wasps about.

When my shoulder is bad I lie on the other one and support the bad one with a pillow to stop arm flopping. Trouble starts when I roll over in my sleep. Can't sleep on my back. Mouth drops open either snore or it gets too dry and wakes me up. Oh the joys of being 27!

My brother was recently diagnosed with Lymphoma, just started Chemo. Maybe I shouldn't put that here, should be on the Worries and Troubles thread. Perhaps I've already mentioned it.
