Hello Forkers December

Welcome back Hosta.


Hope you get it sorted Fidget.


I've just thrown out a 50L bag of old Christmas cards. I'm a bit of a hoarder  It'll free a place for the next few years worth!


Bought fresh (?) yeast from the SM bakery. Mixed it in warm water with a little sugar and waited for the foam. Nothing happened. Have added powdered yeast to my dough, has now risen.

Hello Glenys. Don't you have clock changes in SA? I'm in SW France, we are always an hour ahead of the UK. Do you have frosts in winter? Here we often have colder winters than UK but hotter summers, often in the 30°s.


Milder this morning, no frost, 6° at 11am.

Morning all.


Good luck job hunting Clari. I hope you find one where they treat you well and pay you more.


I must start the Christmas cards. Must finish the middle bed and plant the tulips in it. Must put another 7 barrow loads manure on veg garden.

We watched the mad fun couple doing up the Chateau, then the Irish family with the English mother. Don't really care for I'm a Celeb.

Was disappointed with Elaine's singing, too.


Glad Rinder went, he's been getting on my nerves for weeks.

I really liked Claudia's dress, very pretty, more feminine than usual. First dress I've liked on the presenters. But then I'm over 50

Were you on holiday Victoria? Not ill, I hope.


OH braved the cold yesterday and took down the bean poles.


Much warmer today, 14° this afternoon. Been in the veg garden since we came home from the Christmas fair. Weeded an area where I've heaped 7 barrows of horse manure.  Had to stop because it's getting dark.


OH has mended the GH window which has been wonky for years, it's polycarbonate and it blew off recently.

I have inherited silver too, that gets an annual Christmas clean. Haven't done it yet.


Having the other half of yesterday's fish pie tonight. It was too big.
