HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 26/12/2014 at 17:22

Hello all, think I've got a tiny moment to pop in. 10 adults, 6 children and 2 babies here, been pretty hectic and very noisy. Dishwasher seems to be on 3 - 4 times a day. Don't think I've ever seen so many presents under a tree. Children were very excited. Went for a walk with eldest daughter and 2 small grandsons on bikes this afternoon.

Hope you've all had a good time. Why does Verdun want to be sick in a bowl and put brandy cream on it?!

Christmas from the garden

Morning all. I gather Edd had a bad night. Hope Clarington managed some sleep.

He sounds a lovely dog DD. Hope I meet him one day. If you decide to have a garden pond don't let him in it! Labs usually love water and my friend's lab put her claws through the liner of my pond.

Going to supermarket for final shop.

New hedge advise

Posted: 22/12/2014 at 09:12

If you want more colourful, then what about a mixed hedge of shrubs of different colours, some which flower? My daughter has one. She has Eleagnus, Choisya, Weigela, Kolwitzia, Escallonia, Cotoneaster Lacteus, Forsythia and some others. But her hedge is longer than 8m.

Morning all. Can't afford the postage for the TV, KEF. Wretched microwave has stopped working, well, it is 12 years old - but I have 16 people coming to stay for Christmas and I need it. Going to see if there are any left in the shops this morning.

My OH is not in disgrace, Strictly was recorded. I'm all tellied out! Strictly then The Apprentice. But I can't send KEF a DVD as we have a hard disk thingy. I've heard that the dances are now all on U Tube.

KEF

Have seen it now, fantastic dancing from all, but obvious that Caroline was the winner. Though for my taste Frankie and Kevin's Fred and Ginger show dance was my favourite. Darcey has had a soft spot for Simon since the start and Craig has never liked the romantic side of Frankie.

Good heavens, nothing showing yet in Dordogne. Still have some roses out though.

HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS.....

Have a lovely Christmas Runnybeak, whatever you are doing.

I may be a bit absent too, 4 grown-up children & spouses & 8 grandchildren coming for several days. There are mattresses on the floors and a cot in a bathroom!
