HELLO FORKERS! October Edition

Joyce, OH won't be much good for planting bulbs, once he's knelt down he can't get up! I enjoy it though, planting anything is the best thing about gardening.

HELLO FORKERS! October Edition

Weather forecast was sun so I put the washing out this morning. It is heavy fog!

X ray showed arthritis and a little bit of calcification but the X ray doc said he thought I also have chronic tendonitis. He said to go to my GP for treatment. My GP, last time, gave me Paracetamol and Ibuprofen and said I might need a cortisone injection. I had one of those some years ago after playing tennis and it was horrid. Not sure I'll bother.


Obelixx, won't Cinzano Bianco be too sweet too? Our local SM doesn't sell Dry Martini either. Maybe just dry white wine would do. I use it when I make velouté sauces, but they have cream in them too. Why is it that most of the delicious things are fattening and bad for you?! I rarely eat anything they make in Bake Off, yet I'm hardly slim!

Must go or I'll be late.

Morning all, hello Dove and Daisy.


Going for a shoulder Xray today. Still hurts and wakes me at night. First went to the Doc about it in May. He told me not to lift things, not to get the logs in and asked how much gardening I do, well that is all part of life.


Just counted my bulbs still to plant, 217 tulips (some were birthday pressies), 39 alliums and 50 anemones. Done the daffodils. Still lots of pansies, violas and daisies to put in pots, but some of the summer plants are still in flower.

Good post from Frank about the professionals. They are so good at their chosen career of dancing and must have huge amounts of patience to teach people the way they do.

What is the matter with Oxbridge? My parents and my brothers went there. I didn't because I decided to go to London to train as a nurse.
