HELLO FORKERS! July Edition

Morning all. We are back in France since yesterday early evening. The plane was 1h30 late due to late take off because of heavy rain in the London area.


Friend who house sat the last week had made us dinner, pork curry.


Garden has grown so much. OH mowed the flower garden lawn last night after dinner, in the dusk! The big yellow achillea is usually chest height, it's taller than me! Some of the Dahlias are out. There was rain and not as warm as usual.

I have a lovely old Border Collie. He never slobbers, but now he's old he's sometimes incontinent - but I seem to manage that better than slobber. He's nearly blind, almost deaf, arthritic, loyal and loving. I dread the day which will come.

Made me laugh too Bee witched , but that dog was so appealing, I felt so sorry for it!


I'm afraid I can't stand dog slobber, makes me feel sick, same with egg white.

Morning all.


I've been invited to a ladies' lunch today, by the neighbour next door but 2. Don't think I've been to one before. OH will be going to a pub with some of the other retired OHs.


Back to France tomorrow.

Oh Runnybeak, what a horrible shock that must have been! I hope your achey bits get better quickly and the insurance pays out well. I have been hit while waiting at the traffic lights 3 times since living in France. Got shouted at one time for having a tow hook on my car as the idiot had driven into the car behind me which hadn't the handbrake on so it shunted onto my tow hook. Tow hook saved my car from damage though.


I hope you get better quickly, too, Clari.


My poor friend has had troubles with the knacker man coming to fetch my poor dead horse, the only way they do it in France. The knacker refused to go down my drive, local French farmer has had to take Archie up the drive in his tractor bucket. I wish I had been there, but I would probably have been too upset to have been of much use.

Morning all. 


Woke up an hour earlier than usual - and Dove calls it a lie in! Went to bed late as chatted on phone to my sister, about family, Brexit, but mostly about our old horses - hers is now 25 and going strong.


Enjoy Waterperry, Chicky, one of my favourites.
