Virtual Valentine Party

Posted: 15/02/2016 at 21:50

I said on the first page "I hope I can join in, but will need an early night as getting up at crack of dawn to cross the Channel and be at son's in west Burgandy by early evening" - but there was a change of plan.

Friends invited us to stay with them on the Kent coast, not too far from the Channel Tunnel. So I wasn't using my computer last night. Now I am with son, but it's nearly bedtime.

Brambles.....er roses !!

Glad you had a lie-in, Wonky.

I've been to Rochdale, Flumpy, years ago, My sister worked there years ago when we were young.

We went to the village church for the first time this morning and met some very nice people. There is a gardening club in this village

Back tomorrow, Hosta. Garden in Norfolk is a gravel parking place with a flowerbed on the edge, nothing in it yet but I have plans. The back is a small patio looking over a field. I plan to put large pots with plants for dry shade. So not big.

Ouch Berghill.

Morning all.

Our last day here, staying with friends on the Kent coast before going back to France by the Tunnel. Staying with son tomorrow.

We don't do Valentine's day and my OH tells me everyday  too.

The other day I sprayed weedkiller on the gravel drive of our new 2nd home cottage. Not gardening otherwise as my main garden is in France and I'm in England.

Hosta, I watch English TV via a satellite. So, unless Strictly Come Dancing is on there is nothing on, so we watch programmes we have recorded on a hard disk. In Norfolk at the moment, have watched the Midwives and Mr Selfridge on Catchup TV.

Sorry your toe is painful Berghill.

Glad you enjoyed West Dean, Chicky. Lovely Hellebore. That's somewhere we intended visiting while we had the flat in Eastbourne but we never got around to it. It was a little far.

Mrs. Garden, if you pop in again, I hope you are having a lovely time in Japan. I look forward to your photos.

We had a great day today (yesterday now). The Garden Paintings Exhibition was lovely, some fantastic paintings, but lots of people. We had to make an appointment from the website, 2.30pm. First we met Matty and her OH at Brasserie Zedel in Piccadilly, that Dove recommended. Delicious food, huge place but great atmosphere and very reasonably priced. Thank you, Dove  Got back to Norfolk rather late as the train tickets were very expensive before 9pm. We had tea, rather hot chocolate, with Mr and Mrs Matty after the Royal Academy. Then they left and we wandered about, went to Covent Garden and looked at shops and stalls and a juggler.

Thank you Dove, Lesley, Fairygirl and DD. You all read my post, which I've put on again because it got stuck several pages back behind Pat and those who couldn't sleep!

I had wanted Dove to see that we really enjoyed the Brasserie because she recommended it. Really good choice and very near the Royal Academy.
