HELLO FORKERS! October Edition

Posted: 29/10/2016 at 18:16

Hello Thankthecat, I haven't had time to join in much recently, but I've been a member of this forum for several years. I live in Dordogne, about 40 mins from Dordogne Damsel. Last December we bought a little terraced cottage in Norfolk. OH and I moved to France because our first spouses wanted to, then they died. I have 4 children and lots of grandchildren in France, which made going back to England difficult. But OH sold his French house and bought the cottage - which is where I am until the 8th.

We've had a lovely afternoon. We went to look at the Suffolk town of Clare and the village Cavendish, both very pretty, and we had a sandwich in a lovely old pub.

Going to a concert in our village church tonight.

Good luck with Bracken's blood test Logan. He's a very handsome dog.

I put a warm cardi over my nightie. But when I post on here from France I'm usually dressed as the only place Internet works in our old stone house in the middle of a forest is in the kitchen.

Thank you Dove. We are aiming to go to the farm shop and nursery next Friday. Do you think they will have pheasant then? Thank you for that very kind offer. It would be lovely to see you again.

I love that cow's fringe. She looks huge, I wonder if she's expecting again?

Does the old house belong to you too Obelixx? Will it be a project?

Back from Norwich, wish I'd seen Dove's post about the farm shop, but I think we'll go next week after we return from Yorkshire, visiting uncle. I love Cromer crab as well as pheasant. Thank you for the link Dove, looks great and there is a GC next door so that will make a nice outing. Maybe see you there? Or maybe not, as you have just been. If there's a café we could meet there if you want to.

Went to M&S. Bought jeans, underwear and a jumper. Their clothes fit so much better than French ones and the prices are reasonable. Also bought really comfy shoes in Hotter. The French have slimmer feet than me.

Morning all.

Ooh pheasant, Dove. Rarely see it in France, apart from live birds in the countryside.

Woke up a bit early, still on French time. Been having coffee in bed but reading as OH had the iPad.

Thanks Chicky, think the upset needs a bit of time. I mentioned selling the house because it's too big, too isolated and too expensive to run, but daughter says all her memories of her dad are in it.

Evening all. We are safely in the Norfolk cottage and have been out to a local pub for a pint and a meal. Were travelling at lunch time so didn't have any. It gets dark so early here with being further north and the hour's difference in time.

Morning all.

Phone post worked, Wonky

Haven't been on this thread for a couple of days, didn't feel very chatty after the family dispute. But today we are off to our cottage in Norfolk. Tomorrow I will be shopping for winter clothes in M&S in Norwich! They fit so much better than French clothes which are made for women with fine bones and skinny arms.
