Morning all. Eventful weekend. Son No 1 & family stayed Friday and Saturday nights, then friends stayed Sunday night and Son No. 2 had his 30th birthday party on Saturday. Just been catching up on here.

Then we are off to England on Thursday, Venice on Saturday for 5 nights then back to England for a few days. So I won't be in touch while we are in Venice.

Friend who stayed gave me a big bag of mixed daffodil bulbs. Will have to wait for rain to soften the earth before I plant.

Just dead head them, down to first leaf joint if you like. Proper pruning is done Feb./March when there isn't a heavy frost.

Congratulations Tina. Don't be ridiculous, Verdun!

Though, having had a CS she may feel more of a thing afterwards.

Son, DIL and adorable little granddaughter arriving in an hour. May not post this weekend. Other son's birthday. He lives 35 mins from me. All going there tomorrow, daughter and SIL and 3 little grandsons coming tomorrow.

Thank you for letting us know. Glad it's a success.

Today I feel so happy....

Hello again. I'm happy because we've had a good summer after all (even though I will have a huge water bill!), the garden has done pretty well, all my 4 children and 6 grandchildren came to stay this summer and we are off to Venice next week.

Good morning all. Had trouble getting on Evening Forkers last night so just done that now. Just explaining before someone tells me off. Got lots of notifications this morning, none yesterday, so going through them.

I'm glad we aren't attacking Syria too. Lots of innocent people would probably have been killed if we'd used missiles and our young soldiers always get killed and injured in other country's conflicts when we get involved. It's very difficult to help when a country is having a civil war, especially when it's religious and racial. Perhaps if ever it's over we can help then in a more positive and charitable way.

Going to son No. 2's 30th birthday celebrations tomorrow.

Good Evening FORKERS

I know it's morning, but yesterday had trouble getting here and now I've suddenly had lots of notifications.

KEF have you discovered yet that a trumpet is for the midwife to put one end on future Mummy's tummy and the other end to her ear to listen to baby's heart? I loved doing that when a student nurse doing an obstetrics course.Was going to be a midwife but met OH instead. Broken leg when I was on men's orthopaedics.

4th Panda and Dove, I had many happy holidays in Southwold as a child. My grandparents retired there. My grandmother was a Cobbold (local beer brewers, joined with Tolly).

Hello gardenjeannie, hope you enjoy it here. Brumbull started this thread but hasn't been seen for some time.

Pentille, hope your daughter is OK and the chemo does it's stuff without her feeling too tired.

Chicky, that's a big improvement, really like the blue and white bit.

I thought I was the sensible one and Dove is pretty sensible too, so there are more than one. You don't have to be burdened with the responsibility, KEF.

And the cold, and not wanting to see the tummy getting even bigger than it is thanks to the cake!

My previous post had a spelling mistake, should have been "decided not to answer it".
