Planting a Rambling Rector

Beautiful, but you've trained it well - bit more than letting it do it's own thing.

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Going to a meeting this morning. Preparing housesitter's room, tidying and packing this afternoon.

Ouch, Hosta, sounds painful and smelly.

Daughter 2 and family have gone. We shall watch TV quietly tonight and eat the rest of the sausage rolls and pizza. Strictly results, canals and Downton.

Tomorrow morning I'm going to a meeting near Riberac. Tuesday we are off to Norfolk.

This evening I found some papers in a drawer in the study that my mother gave me. Family trees and written notes all about her family, mother and father. They all came from East Anglia, apart from a French Huguenot that one of them married. It was interesting, a great (maybe 2 greats) grandfather was Mayor of Norwich near the end of the 19th century.

Morning all.

DD, I hope you both enjoyed the evening - in your own different ways!

Lesley, that's a good idea, I hope they are good at paper scraping.

The grandchildren came into our bedroom this morning, jumped all over us and my morning coffee got tipped over the bedside table! Then granddaughter filmed us on OH's iPad. How come someone who is only 6 knows how an iPad works when someone who is 58 years older than her has problems with it?

We had mugs of chicken and veg soup by the bonfire, then fireworks, then came in to watch Strictly and to eat sausage rolls and pizza by the woodburner. Then French Strictly followed the English one. Any of you would have been welcome, but I haven't been back here since this morning to say so.

Read though and had lots of things to say on the way but my memory is like a sieve and have forgotten most. Anyway it's past bedtime.

One thing, glad your OH is home, Chicky, hope you both sleep well.

Daughter 2 with GD and GS and her OH are coming to lunch today, going after lunch tomorrow. We'll have a bonfire and eat finger foods like sausage rolls and pizza pieces tonight.

Morning all.

This is the town I visited with Daughter 1 and 3 GSs on Thursday, Chauvigny.

Congratulations to RB's GD.

I hope Verdun's niece recovers quickly and Verdun doesn't eat all her ice cream! Someone pass him a doughnut - quick!

I got home at lunchtime then we went to the supermarket.

Well done Fairygirl, that was a good result for your walk.

Morning all.

Will be going back home later this morning, then must go shopping as other daughter and family are coming this weekend for Halloween. We'll light the garden bonfire and have soup and sausage rolls.
