Hello Forkers December

Morning all.


-6°, white with frost.


Such a sweet kitten photo.


Good luck with car hunting, Fidget. I hope the insurance does it's stuff.


We had friends who went to Lincoln Cathedral, 2 couples who had holiday homes here. So sad, earlier this year one of the couples drove into a river here and died, he'd had a heart attack. Wonder is GWRS knew them.


We may go out to town today to print the Carol Service leaflets or we may do it on Monday. Otherwise I shall carry on sticking photos in albums. I've got so behind with it. But must light the woodburner first.

I liked Harrods when I was young, they had quite reasonably priced maternity dresses and when daughter was born they had a breast feeding and baby changing room by their buffet restaurant. The only one I'd ever come across in 1976.

Been doing HW, sitting room dusted, polished and vacuumed even behind the furniture. Kitchen wiped down and floor washed, bedroom dusted.


Was cold today, although sunny, didn't really feel like gardening. Woodburner flaming merrily in sitting room.


I agree, get an electrician, but not the last one! Is there Check-a-trade where you are, Clari? You can read reviews.

Yesterday was sunny in Dordogne after a cold start. Felt quite warm in the sun, no coat for gardening.


This morning is colder, -5°, ground is white, sky is blue.

Spent an hour in the veg plot yesterday. Was a mess, haven't looked at it for over a month, except to pick the last tomatoes from the GH last week. Lots more to do. The farmer has cleaned out the field shelter with his tractor and he's scooped up a pile of droppings in the place the horses used as a loo for the last two winters. So now I have a load of black crumbly manure to spread when I've finished weeding.


Then I spent 2 hours in the middle bed. Need to find room for tulips and alliums.

It looks like a salamander. I get them in my garden, not the same, mine are Fire Salamanders, shown in this link. http://www.wildlifeinfrance.com/fire-salamander-salamandra-salamandra-salamandre-tachet-e-france.html

That's sad Logan. But you never know. Tigger lived 18 months longer than the vet said he would. His cancer went into remission. Good luck.
