Serious stuff......no! Really

I used to watch The Likely Lads, and Steptoe & Son, but I wasn't a child then. And Top of the Pops, had a crush on George Harrison.

Evening all. I'm at my daughter's near Poitiers and her OH has managed to find the WiFi number. First thread I've looked at so don't know what's been going on elsewhere, but all my favourite people seem to be here, so it seems OK. Glad you haven't gone Punk doc. Don't you dare think of going Verdun. I do another forum too, but they are both different so I'll carry on with both.

We had chicken curry and apple tart for lunch with the children so had a salady selection of things from the fridge with fish fingers for tea. Children now bathed, in bed and asleep, hopefully.

I will stick to this thread, far less complicated.

Off to daughter this morning.

Horse Manure - ? Din In or Leave On Top

I spread it over the soil after the last veg are harvested, then rotavate in Spring. Doesn't go down very deep and makes a nice tilth on top.

Off to see daughter No 1 tomorrow & 3 small grandsons. 2 days. Don't know if I'll have time to post on here. Probably help her with gardening. She planted lots of roses in the spring, mostly climbers and she grows veggies. Very keen on healthy diet and beautifully slim, unlike her mother! - the slim bit, not the healthy diet.

OH not coming, looking after animals. Made him a chicken and leek pie.

Don't think I'm eating tonight, still full from lunch!

Going back a couple of pages, dahlias usually survive the winter here, but cannas don't, they do in Bordeaux, not Dordogne. Perhaps they like the sea air!

I feel sorry for KEF, that lamb sounded so good!

This thread is showing our ages. I must be around the same age as Swiss Sue and older than Verdun. Some of the programmes are totally unfamiliar, must be people younger than me or in 69 - 73 nurse training, no time for TV, mid 80s moved to France so no English TV until satellites got going.

Had good lunch with son, he BBQ'd the steak, his wife did 1st course, veg and apple tart. Sunny 23° in shade.

Do you ever still paint anything Dove, what sort of painting? Did you see that thread that Happy Marion did about painting what you've grown? http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/painting-what-youve-grown/82877.html  found it but haven't looked again yet. That "search this site" box at the top of the page with a magnifying glass is useful for finding things. I just type "painting" and it was one of the things that came up.
