Hello Forkers.....It's October!

My mother loved the sea and sailing, but I like the countryside and horses. We are about 3 hours from a beach here in mid Dordogne.


My elderly mare eats wooden fencing and hedges. That's why I have electric fencing and suggested it to Iain. Only thing that works.

Morning all.
Thanks Joyce, they are improving, but still taking painkillers and waking up at night. A man from a cleaning firm is coming this morning to do an estimate and say what needs doing.

Lovely to see more of your garden, Fairy, great use of foliage.

I liked Sheridan Smith too. Wasn't she the actress who was Cilla Black in a film about Cilla? She was brilliant in that.

An electric wire on the fence might help. But you'd need to buy the box and the battery, bit pricey.


Thanks for the sympathy about the flood. My bruises get a bit better each day. Stuff is drying. Found a dehumidifier rental place and insurance says they will pay.

My garden is getting rather messy and autumnal, petunias in pots are over but the begonias are still OK. There is still some colour from dahlias, salvias and Michaelmas daisies etc.

What is your weather like? (2)

Flexible pipe under the basin burst in the night. Flooded the bathroom, landing, next door bedroom and the family room below. Trying to sort out insurance and dehumidifiers.

Thank you for your sympathy. The insurance man says I mustn't do anything except try to dry it out as the assessor needs to inspect the damage. I have washed the dining chair cushion covers after taking photos. I've taken lots of photos.


He doesn't know of a local firm that can supply de-humidifiers. Says he'll look into it.


Less sore, can lie down, so slept last night.

Highlands, I see you live near Bressingham. Our English home is only about 10 minutes from Bressingham. Our other home is in France. Complicated history as we were both widowed and have a home each.

What gorgeous gardens have been made out of wildernesses. Really enjoying this thread.
