HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 25/10/2014 at 22:21

Glad you had a good day, Chicky. I love Wisley, but not easy to get there. We have a flat in Eastbourne for when we are in the UK, belongs to OH's daughter really, but last time we went to Wisley there was an accident on the M25 and it took 3 hours.

Did fish and chips tonight, at last my batter is improving. OH loves it and the French don't sell fish and chips and the fish is bread crumbed, not battered, in the supermarket.

I still like Frankie best, though I think Pixie and Caroline were a little bit better tonight. I think I find Bruno the most irritating.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

I haven't looked here for several days either. Miss the email notifications.

I hope you get your appointment soon Matty, hugs, and best wishes to all who need them.

I am an hour glass, but tummy has been turning apple shaped with advancing years! That's why jeans have to be at waist to stop them sliding off. Is "hipster" an old  fashioned word then? May have something to do with living in France, lose touch with changing language.

I always laugh at naughty remarks, just not usually quick enough or witty enough to make any! Am not totally innocent, was a nurse and have had 4 children!

Have potted up all the plants I bought mail order in September.

You are a sensible and wise lady Marion. But probably a lot of people aren't willing to put in all the work that you do. I'm really pleased with my yellow buddleia, a friend gave me a cutting about 6 ins tall and now it's taller than me and been covered with bees and butterflies.

BM, I hope that was from laughter, not shock or disgust!

I like bananas exactly as Yvie said.

I removed the tomatoes from the GH and sprayed it all with liquid soap, alcohol and insecticide and it's still got whitefly in it and they are going into the coldframes. Help! Will buy some of those sticky flytraps that the RHS recommend.

If they haven't been blackened by frost then leave them upside down for a bit before packing them for storing to let the sap run out.

I hate the autumn clock changing, why do we have to do it? The days seem so short.

Was Forester really talking about bananas?
