HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 20/01/2016 at 17:50

Link works, have signed and sent to several friends. I have a friend who was expecting to receive her pension for the years she had worked when she reached 60. She had stopped working early because of ill health and was finding it hard to make ends meet. Then she got a letter to say she would get her pension at 62 instead, which meant two more years of hardship. I had that letter too, but I wasn't in such an impecunious state.

Morning all.

Lily P, Monty has a new puppy called Nell. I posted a photo in December.

Taking my car in for a ball joint and another try for the MOT. Going shopping, using OH's car. Need zipper foot for sewing machine as well.

Verdun, haven't you put on weight yet with all those donuts? Well, we'll see when GW returns and you're on it.

David I've read your post too and KEF's and Dove's so I would like to echo what they said. Shows how uncomplaining you are as we had no idea. Hugs from me too.

Have made 10 jars of marmalade. Amazing how much a bag of Seville oranges makes. Forgot how many to take, was half that amount last year.

Good thread Flowerlover, I like hearing about people's gardening experiences.

In 2012 I started a thread about how people started gardening. Here it is, if you are interested.  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/why-did-you-all-start-gardening/69612.html

Pansyface, we did exactly the same thing with the same result when we moved to this house! 1992 we were laying out the garden.

Morning all.

Ginger, I live in SW France and in summer it's often over 30° - I don't like it! It can be colder here in winter than in England. I love England.

That link worked, Dove. What a terrifying experience.

I'm going to make marmalade today and perhaps sew a couple of cushions with left over curtain material.

I had two Wild Swans, one from England, present from a friend and one from France. They both died, don't know why, unless it's the heat here in summer.

Have just found where everyone has been recently - Verdun's Which subjects thread! Missed it as too busy sorting out cottage and making curtains.

Wonky, it didn't and it wasn't  Garage on Wednesday.

Perhaps RB has the lurgy. I'm still coughing and blowing nose, 18th day.

Dove's link didn't work for me either, said the page was missing.

I watched the MS programme too. Amazing, really hope it's a breakthrough. Worked with MS patients when I was nursing.
