HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

Back from daughter's. I babysat on Thursday as daughter took her OH out to dinner for his birthday present at Gordon Ramsey's restaurant in Bordeaux.

Daughter lives 1h15 from me, it was 15° and dry, OH says it rained here and was 12°.

I am getting seriously panicked. At least DD has until June to sort her garden, I have until the 8th May and either it's raining or I'm doing something else. Only came back from England last week, tomorrow going to a Saint George's Day lunch, Sunday church followed by a lunch, Monday a workshop on bereavement that I was asked to take part in as I was bereaved (wishing I'd refused). Tuesday a friend is coming to help me weed and the forecast is rain.

Plumber came, 2 hours late, only to tell me he is coming back on Tuesday morning.

We've been to supermarket, raining so not a gardening day, but I met a friend in the SM who offered to come and help me weed on Tuesday afternoon.

So...............

Each to his/her own. Lyn, you are a very talented gardener and Steve was a teacher. Can't be good at everything. I like music but I can't sing or play anything. Thank goodness we all have different talents and personalities.

That was a weird dream Lesley.

Hope you feel better Bushman.

Light rain, 12° here, fairly sunny 23° yesterday afternoon.

Morning all.

The plumber is now 1h40 late. His wife says she'll try to contact him as we are going out at lunch time. Here in France I'm an hour ahead. This is the plumber's third appointment for the blocked loo. Don't think he wants to do it and he knows it's not our only loo. I think a grandchild has thrown a soft toy in it.

This evening I am babysitting 2 small grandchildren. It's SIL's birthday and daughter is taking him out to dinner. I'm staying until after lunch tomorrow as it's grandson's 5th birthday tomorrow.

Mine's not battery operated, but I have it on a lower shelf in the shade. My potting area is in the GH. More convenient.
