HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 23/10/2014 at 23:32

Sad afternoon today. Nearly a month ago a really skinny little cat turned up, starving. Took her to the vet for worming, de-fleaing etc. He said she was old and had missing teeth so couldn't manage to feed herself by hunting. No identification. She was very affectionate and seemed to like it here. But instead of getting better she just ate an enormous  amount and had diarrhoea, which was becoming quite a problem. And my cat hated her.

Took her back to the vet this afternoon. He said she had something seriously wrong with her digestive system, probably cancer and would die soon. He said it would be best to put her to sleep. So I left her with him.

It's my birthday

I think I'm now thoroughly confused. So many people have given so many descriptions I don't know who is who anymore. I think I'm still me.

But, having seen a photo of KEF before I knew she was blond and I've seen a photo of Lyn and she's small, slender and blond.

Snooze well, Stacey. Lovely to see you when you pop in.

I went to the bank this morning for chat with new bank manager, except now there seems to be a team of young accounts managers for clients. She was young and pretty. I had a small savings account that she said wasn't worth keeping open so cashed it. Had email this morning from favourite clothes shop to say they were having a "choc" week with reductions of 30% - 50% of their autumn range. Spent remains of small savings account.

Gosh, this thread has romped away since this morning!

OL, I liked your description of me, but I'm not very glamorous, unfortunately! I've sent photos before and DD and Matty have met me. I have 8 grandchildren.

I've seen photos of several people on here and met several past members. Never met Verdun, but imagined him as dark haired and slender - don't know why as he's always eating cake. I know KEF is blond. 

Some people I imagine like their names, so I think of Lily as being dreamy and beautiful and Fairygirl is petite and pretty.

A nice young man to weed the veggie garden and all the heavy stuff like strimming (makes my shoulders ache) and hedgecutting and to cut the too low branches of the trees.

I missed Monty too, forgot to record it. But I heard about Lynda B.

Well done OL and congratulations to your OH.

I enjoyed the Quiz and Curry evening. My team came third. BM said "BL are you the towns mayoress! You go on so many dinner dates and engagements, wish I was that popular "   No BM, it's just that OH and I are retired! Also (hardly dare say here as some people are anti-church, was a thread about it once), I was local church warden for the C of E here in France for 6 years. I organised social and charity events for the church.

Empty Space??

I plant annuals among the perennials, keeps the colour going as they have such a long flowering season. Salvia farinacea is good as it looks more like a perennial, which I suppose it is really, but it's used as an annual. Some of the annual rudbeckias, such as Tiger Eye, I buy as plugs and put in the flower beds. Then when they die down in November I dig them up and plant tulips.

Miniature Rose

My tiny roses lasted about a year in a pot outside, but I was given them in the spring. My patio rose lasted about 4 years, don't know why it died.
