HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 19/09/2014 at 08:32

Morning all. Must get on tidying for the BBQ and preparing food, marinades for meat, salads, a pud (others are making other puds).

Had to buy a new phone because of the storm, now it needs information and answer machine recording put into it. Instruction booklet is in French, I speak French quite well, but French and technical is hard.

Was glad to see the news this morning. But I hope all the division hasn't caused problems for us in the rest of the World. The UK is so small we really need to stick together.

There was another storm this afternoon and my Border Collie is a quivering wreck in storms. But instead of hiding under the stairs as usual he disappeared outside. We spent a lot of the afternoon looking for him. He reappeared when the sun was shining again, looking sheepish and asking for lunch!

Sounds painful, Lesley.

I haven't looked here for ages, what a moving thread this is. It's hard when parents get old, scares me that one day I'll be old, wonder what my children will put up with.

Went to a friend's husband's funeral on Monday and going to another friend's husband's funeral tomorrow.

They are lovely rudbeckias VS, I especially like the orange ones.

David, your garden goes on and on! Is it very big to have so many plants?

Still storming and raining. Have done the shopping for the BBQ, wanted to sweep the terrace, too wet. Hope it doesn't rain on Saturday. The garden did need it though, no rain for nearly 2 weeks.

Morning all.

Huge storm early this morning. The portable telephone isn't working, will have to get a new one. The ones that just plug in the phone sockets are OK.

Doing a charity BBQ on Saturday must go shopping for it today. OH has just done a lot of hoovering  In case we have to eat inside if it rains, hope it's fine, makes it so much easier. About 36 people.

Thank you everyone for my birthday wishes yesterday, and on the birthday thread. Perhaps someone mistook BL for RB!

Spent a lot of the day today with son and baby grandson. Son bought me lots of tulips for my birthday. We went to the GC.

DD, people complain that there are harvest mites which bite when you walk on grass, called "aotats" here. They don't affect everyone, I think you have to be allergic to them.

Thank you Verdun, I have Salvia Amistad too, but it's nearer 4' than 7'. Wasn't sure what to do with it.
