Have collected DIL from hospital with new baby and collected 1 small GD from school. DIL has gone to get the other one now as it's more of a playgroup and in next village.

Been in the low 30s for the last few days. Now I'm on the western edge of Burgundy looking after little granddaughters, it poured last night and is pleasantly cooler.

Hello Forkers - May Edition

Poured with rain in the night.

Mornings here are such a rush, and so much earlier than I'd got used to!

Smallest GD wouldn't go to bed last night and screamed, then she did a poo in her knickers this morning. I think she's worried about having a new baby sister when she was the baby. They are both at nursery school now so the house is peaceful. I had 4 children but I was so much younger then! I used to get up at 6.30am to get them all to school, secondary school here starts at 8am. But now I'm a Granny I wake between 8 and 8.30am and drink coffee in bed until 9am!

Morning all. Poured all night here too, forgot my mac. Must take the littlies to nursery soon. Smaller one has just done something messy in her knickers. I think Joyce has the answer, she wants to be the baby and isn't any more. While I was cleaning her she said "but babies poo in their pants"!

Been rather a difficult evening. All was fine earlier, met the 2 little GDs from nursery school and took them to see there Mummy in hospital. She went outside with them to play in the garden and I had a peaceful hour cuddling new baby GD. Then I took the two GDS home, still 31° here so they had a play in the paddling pool before supper. Read them stories, put them to bed. Then all hell let loose! Younger one, 3 in July, howled and howled, wanted Daddy who is at a business dinner with important clients. Mummy rang up to see how it was going. She said it's time to stop being nice and be firm and strict, so I was and within minutes there was silence. But it's hard being hard with someone else's children even if they are your own son's. He indulges them a lot, they have him wrapped around their little fingers!

Debs, 6! But my Mum had 6, I had 4.

Lovely pics of your garden Joyce.

Sunny, you need to turn the old wheelbarrows upside down, like I did, and you may get wild bees in them thinking they're hives. Mine had 4 honeycombs but I didn't want to disturb them.

Still very hot and sunny on the Western edge of Burgandy. Hope Obelixx's rain goes south to home in Dordogne, but OH says he's watered everything.

Took the little granddaughters to nursery school this morning. Will take them to see their Mummy and new baby sister after school. Been to local SM and have washed up and tidied son's kitchen. Seen weeds in the garden but it's too hot now. Wearing a summer dress.

Welcome Neal 4. I agree with punkdoc, the fungi have to be in contact with the roots.

Hello all, just been reading back. Felt pleased that some of you remembered my messy pond!

I'm at son's, 5 hours from home, but it took longer than 5 hours because of heavy traffic. Our bank holiday was Ascension Day which was Thursday so people take Friday off too and have a long weekend. Sunday afternoon is when they all go back home.

Anyway, son rang as he had to go to work today and has an important business dinner tonight. Baby arrived late so DIL is still in hospital, it's 4 days here. He thought her mother would come to look after their 2 little daughters and take them to nursery school but she was going away for the weekend and isn't back until Tuesday. So here I am, near Auxerre on the edge of Burgandy.

I had a good cuddle of baby Elise in hospital yesterday, she was wide awake taking everything in, but not crying. A little cutie. Her sisters were overexcited. They cooled down in the paddling pool when we got back to son's house. Still very hot here. I'll take them back to the hospital after nursery school.
