Hello Forkers ... August edition

Your holiday sounds lovely Liri. We had Internet in Norfolk but only OH's iPad when travelling and often an iffy signal.


Haven't had time to post photos yet. Expecting families any minute. The spiders have been very busy while we were away, don't think the housesitter could have noticed!

Morning all. Just spent ages reading back.


I love runner beans. I blanche them, if you don't then they don't taste nice later, dry them, cool them, then put them on trays to freeze before bagging them up. Then they don't stick together.


Loved Robert Hardy, at least he reached a good age.


Busy day today. Latest grandson (son 2) is being christened tomorrow. Daughters x 2 and Son 1 and families arriving here tonight. Need to go to supermarket and prepare some food and make a bed. Did most of the others before going on hols. 8 grandchildren will be staying, some on mattresses on the floor, includes a baby granddaughter but she'll be in a cot possibly in a bathroom, but no - son 2 isn't staying so someone can have his room.

Joyce, we did meet the owner, not that old, on our last visit, but not this time.

Went to Giverny, Monet's garden yesterday, beautiful, will have lots of photos when I've sorted them.

Morning all.


Sad day, we are going to OH's BIL's funeral in Buckinghamshire, bit of a drive. Must be back in Norfolk tonight as we have to back to get the ferry back to France tomorrow.


We didn't have chicken last night. We went to the pub and I had steak (haven't had one for ages) and OH had prawn curry.


I think that was brave, Chicky, an 18 mile walk. When we had the flat in Eastbourne we used to take the bus to Brighton!

Haven't had time for Hindringham this time, but thank you for telling us about it.


We went to The Old Vicarage at East Ruston on Friday. Have been before, last year in June, different flowers out now.

We visited an NGS garden in Dereham this morning, really beautiful, the we went to an antiques fair in Hingham, then visited another local garden in the open gardens weekend. Met some local friends there and had tea and cake. Didn't rain.
