Hello Forkers - April edition

Posted: 26/04/2017 at 11:55

Morning all, but it's no longer morning here!


Cold and grey here. 2° this morning, 5° now. GH is shut with heater and heated mat on. Lids on cold frames. But forecast is for hot next week.


Have finished my tax forms, sigh of relief.


I need a man that can for tyres too. But haven't needed one in an emergency for years.


HW today. Have dusted the bedroom and OH has hoovered. I need to clean the spare room and make the bed for the house sitter.

David Austin Roses, are they worth it?

Evelyn is a peachy pink with yellow tinges in the middle. Charles Darwin is yellow. Brother Cadfael is a clear pink. I think Evelyn and Charles Darwin would go together if you wanted pink and yellow, but I don't think Brother Cadfael would be so good with the yellowerer colours.


You could contact David Austin roses and ask for their advice.

I like gravy or a sauce with everything, Topbird.


Why does OH always want to watch Midsomer Murders when he always sleeps through it? I had seen it before, but he said we hadn't, so he slept through it again

Been doing my tax forms, why do they have to use such impossible language? Bad enough being in French! I think I've put my English pension in the wrong place.


Just about to go and have home made Cornish pasties with runner beans and gravy.

Morning all.


I hope Wonky enjoys her new job and the day goes well.


Has rained a little, heavy rain forecast this afternoon, cold night and 8° tomorrow afternoon.


We are going to the SM and GC this morning. Must do my French tax forms this afternoon, due the day we get back from England. They haven’t given us as much time this year.

Hello all, been really busy the last few days, only to find you've moved house yet again. Will have to read back in the morning. Nighties.

Will it be cold next week? It's full sun here, early 20s next week. But we have the car so I don't need to travel light and I have some clothes at the cottage. No pyjamas, long nightie! Gas heating in the cottage, much more efficient than here.

Done the long border, knackered and have a rash on my arm from the goosegrass. Kept thinking of my friend though.


Have just eaten Spag Bol sitting outside, come in as it's getting cool and gloomy. Rain is forecast for tomorrow. Garden needs it.

You can but try, plastic grow house probably the best option. They grow into big plants, I've only grown them in the ground. I've never grow runner beans in a pot either. How big are the pots?
