HELLO FORKERS!

 Specsavers, Dove?

DD I thought you were so busy with house and garden and B&B. Anyway, congratulations on the job, I hope you enjoy it. Will you still do B&B?

We've just been for a beer and a snack in a pub between the sea and the downs.

Morning all.

Glad you had a good day DD. Could that have been Le Mont Dore? Took daughter and 2 grandchildren there last year for a day trip. They loved it. But I think I'm too old for skiing now! Was never very good anyway, too nervous.

Last day in Eastbourne, removal men tomorrow. Going out for a meal early this evening with DIL, SIL and 2 grandchildren.

I saw a lovely scented clematis in a private garden that was opened for the NGS last year. Betty Corning, liked it so much I bought one.

Thank you, GWRS, Lily P and Hosta We will still be in France more than England and I still have a big garden in France to look after. I was trying to make a little bit of England in France, but I've always loved gardens. They make me feel happy.

Happy Birthday Chicklet.

Lily Pilly asked "Busy I think I may have missed something, are you returning permanently to uk? I thought your family had just moved beside you in France?"

I have lived in France since 85, brought up my 4 children in France and have 9 grandchildren in France. Husband 1 wanted to live in France, I only went for him, but he died in 98. Met 2nd OH in France, he was widowed, moved to France because his wife wanted to. When I met him he was trying to sell his French house to move back to England but he moved in with me instead. He has sold his house now so we have bought a second home in Norfolk, which is where we want to be but I can't sell my French house as the children share it (French inheritance laws) and they don't want to sell it.

In the meantime, 2nd OH was renting a flat in Eastbourne from his DIL which is where most of his stuff is which we are moving to the cottage to Norfolk.

Morning all. Thanks Pat. What are craisins?

Last night's Turkish meal was yummy but such a lot I couldn't finish my main course, lamb, and they wrapped up my Halva to take away. My brother, sister and BIL managed to finish all theirs! OH didn't have pud. It was good to see them, but now we are going to Norfolk we'll see less of them. But my sister often goes to Norfolk on holiday, the Broads this year.

More packing today.

Can you Identify this Jasmine & Share any tips?

4301 Jasmine officianale has finished flowering by September, but I live in SW France. However, I thought it's normal flowering time is June - August. The polyanthum, which is often sold as a house plant, flowers early in the year. Wouldn't you want it in flower for the wedding?
