HELLO FORKERS!

Hello, just spoke to the garage and insurance man has been and told them to go ahead, but it won't be ready until the end of next week.

It was -5° this morning and only 2° now.

HELLO FORKERS!

Haven't been here for a few days because I went to see my son near Orleans. Drove up from Dordogne. I was driving in the dark and the rain on the motorway and there was a huge clunk as though I'd hit a rock. I managed to drive to the next service station, although the car felt strange and found a big pipe  sticking out of the bodywork in front and half the bumper was missing. The  breakdown man said it was a part of a lorry that had fallen off. Car is at Vierzon, 1 hour from son and 3 hours from home. They say it will be there about 10 days. That was Friday, got back by train this evening (Tuesday), took ages, car still in garage waiting to be assessed for insurance.

Couldn't post here from my son's as his internet is too poor. Could do emails, but the box for writing in for this forum was missing.

Camera Corner

I don't know if this is the sort of question I can ask here, but does anyone know how to reduce photo sizes to send by email so it doesn't take ages to send and open them? My OH has a new camera and the photos are rather big. I forgot my camera (Canon Ixus 55) for my granddaughter's baptism so took photos with OH's camera and my son can't open them, they have a poor internet signal.

Been a bit too busy to come here today.

I've started that 5/2 diet. Today was supposed to be the 500 cal. day, then I was asked to lunch with friends and it went out of the window. Tomorrow I'm going to my son's for the weekend so I can't do it then. Oh dear!

Typing here is really hard. The letters and space bar keep not working. Is that what Star Gaze Lily meant?

Tudor Monastry Farm

Hadn't seen this thread til now. We visited the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum last week when we were in England where The Tudor Monastery Farm was filmed. It was very pretty and interesting.

 It's a shame that Nigel and Adam's Farm Kitchen is on the same time as "Masterchef, the Professionals", which I want to watch too. And there's no +1 on BBC and no i-player in France.

Sun has come out! Amazing! Amost forgotten what it looks like, time to do some more weeding and clearing and tulip planting. But perhaps I'll wait a bit as it's still cold.

Morning all.

I would love to go to lunch in a nice warm pub, Dove, but I'd never do the journey by lunchtime.

It was -1° this morning, but no frost.

Just been catching up. An awful lot of chat about food, just when I've had the day of under 500 calories on this new way of eating that people say helps make you lose weight. Hungry. Would love cake, hot chocolate, scones and cream.

Suddenly started pouring with rain. Bedtime, night all.

Good morning all. (The lazy way of saying it, I don't miss anyone out!)

2° here, no frost. Going to supermarket.

Yesterday I actually got round to weeding and digging up of annuals to make room for tulips and alliums. Today rain is forecast.
