HELLO FORKERS AUGUST EDITION

Fairygirl said "BL - do you have Sky or something similar? They're always showing the programmes on the Horse and Country channel that he did from his yard, and all the exhibitions and training events etc. They're fabulous"


I used to have Horse and Country when I had my own Sky Card but we now have OH's card and it doesn't work any more.


I'm afraid I really like your old kitchen, apart from the pine ceiling. Cupboards look like oak, not pine. Looks just like my kitchen, warm looking, farmhousey. What was the matter with it?

Feel a bit of a twit  I said "Allegro" instead of "Valegro" on page 2. Must be because of having a piano playing OH.

Talking of stumperies, we went to the one at Arundel Castle, Sussex in 2014. It had the typical shady section with Hostas etc, but also had a sunny bit with huge Echiums.

What is your weather like?

Sun and 28° so far. Been out looking for electric fence posts for daughter's horse. The whole world is also in Dordogne. Many of them bringing their camping cars and caravans.

I love Carl Hester too, lovely, generous man. Watched all the Dressage on the red button yesterday. Superb. Hope Charlotte and Allegro do well in the individual Free Style on Monday. I prefer Peter Storr's commentary to Ian Stark's, but Peter is a dressage rider whereas Ian is an eventer.

Yes Fairy, love Carl Hester. He seems a lovely person. I used to read his articles when I used to get Horse and Rider magazine.

Yesterday was 10° in the morning and 25° in the afternoon. From what Dove said on Forkers thread it was warmer near Norwich than it was here in Dordogne! But we should be in for some hot weather, not really looking forward to it. Still need rain. Just not on the 20th when I'm having a charity BBQ.

Glad Chicky and Lesley had good hols.


Lovely photos of DD and Charlie looking happy. Hope I will get an invite one day


Didn't come here yesterday, busy morning then watched the whole of the dressage on the red button. Fabulous. I used to do a bit of dressage, not as easy as they make it look, though my mare could do extended trot and canter sideways.


We got a new TV for our bedroom recently, the other was 15 years old. We have Sky in the sitting room and a Freebox with satellite in the bedroom. But French Freebox is via an ordinary aerial, so I would think you could get UK Freebox with an ordinary aerial in the UK.

Thank you Yvie, I haven't been to either of them. Lovely wild flower areas. The fairies at Trentham are beautiful, was it Fidget who posted them before?

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 11/08/2016 at 20:43

Haven't had time to garden the last week, visits from children and grandchildren. But I have done watering and have picked loads of tomatoes, cucumbers, courgettes and runner beans. Had the odd onion too which are almost ready to harvest. The red sweet peppers are getting big and green. The mangetout peas and broad beans were over some time ago, lots in the freezer. Same for the raspberries, but the autumn ones will be ready soon.
