MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 29/08/2013 at 14:08

Didn't Have time to say Good Morning this morning so Good Afternoon instead.

Eye is feeling much better, thank you. Still another 3 days antibiotics to go though.

Went to Aladdin's cave this morning to do the shopping. Alias, Leclerc Hypermarket.

Son No.2's 30th birthday tomorrow, but he's at work so will be having a weekend celebration. We are going to the lunch on Saturday and babysitting adorable 20 month granddaughter in the evening. (Son No.1's.)

They are very pretty. What are they ? poppies?

Now that is strange. I've never seen lichen on lavender or roses. I have lots on my apple trees. Are you sure it's the same thing?

Thank you David, Matty and Chicky. Spent the afternoon ironing in front of the TV.

I wanted to see where you come from so I clicked on your picture and got me instead of you, so there is still a problem with this site. When I click on my picture I get Wyre Forest which isn't me.

If you mean that stuff on the bark it is lichen and totally harmless. It only grows where the air is pure, so must be a good sign.

What is normal? We are all different. Thank God! Variety is the spice of life.

After 2 lots of eye drops it feels so much better, although still very red.

What are you looking for exactly? A coach trip from England, a package holiday, or travelling yourselves to France and doing day tours?

If you are looking for a coach trip there are several on Google with reviews from previous customers like this one which seems reasonably priced http://www.shearings.com/europe/france/holidays/loire-valley

The Chateaux are wonderful. I live in France and have seen several. Chenonceau is beautiful and has lovely gardens, formal and the farm potager, Azay-le-Rideau is surrounded by water and is very pretty, Chambord is huge and magnificent but was never lived in so hasn't much in the way of furnishings, Cheverny is beautifully decorated. Clos St. Lucé was the small chateau that was owned by Leonardo da Vinci, he died there, and it has models of machines he designed, small ones in the house and big ones in the gardens, interesting.Try looking some up on Google. Well worth a visit.

On Monday when kneeling in a flower bed trying to fill in the mole tunnels I got wacked in the eye by a dead, dry Liatris flower. I know, I never get round to deadheading everything. Yesterday it went red, swelled up and oozed pus. Yuk. Went to Doc today, conjunctivitis. Eye wash, drops, no driving for 3 days (bother), no gardening, no dusting (that one is OK!), no going for a walk if it's windy.

Now that is a provocative remark, naughty Verdun. Since when were men cleverer than women?
