Hello Forkers - February 2017 Edition

Posted: 20/02/2017 at 11:23

It wasn't all so easy when we were young. We bought our first house during the 3 day week and the steel strikes. Bought the last fridge for sale in our town, shortages every where. On tv they said there would be an oil shortage (early 70s), there people filling their supermarket trollies with cooking oil! Then mortgage interest rates went up to 19%, OH was tearing his hair out and  said England was in such a state he wanted to move to France, which I managed to resist for a few years.

OH asked Google about actors mumbling and lots of people have complained!

My sitting room TV isn't that old and the bedroom one is new and I still think some of the actors mumble. I know it's not me as I can hear other actors quite clearly. Our old sitting room TV went quite dark, which is why we changed it.

Morning all. Cloudy, was -4°.

Must do HW and bed making today as daughter 1 and 3 small sons are coming on Wednesday for a couple of days, school hols. I have a meeting in Bergerac tomorrow so can't do much then.

Having got over my cough, now have a cold.

Loved Call the Midwife, not just babies either, mental health and dentistry too.

We watched SS-GB. I agree about the mumbling, at least 2 of the actors had husky, whispery voices. I found it rather depressing, but, after we turned the volume up, OH seemed to like it. The actor in Hotel Halcyon has a soft whispery voice too.

Our guests have left, enjoyed lunch and their company.

Gorgeous snowdrop (nearly typed bluebell!) woods, Chicky.

I left a card in the birthday thread, Frank. I hope you have a good rest of the day.

Congratulations to punkdoc's Mum. I hope the sale goes through smoothly.

Morning all.

Friends to lunch today.

Maybe you just don't need much sleep Hosta. If you just relax and don't worry about it (easier said than done) do you think you'd feel so tired? My 1st OH only needed 4 hours a night. I was the tired one as he sometimes wanted to talk to me!

Loving the signs of spring. Gorgeous colour, GD, glad you found the thread. I noticed bumble bees too in the garden today. My winter honeysuckle is out but I can only smell it when I go right up and sniff it. I had thought the air around would be full of perfume when I planted it.
