Hello Forkers.....It's October!

Glad you are safe, Liri.

My chief washer upper has done that too, Dove!

A nice plasterer/decorator came this afternoon to do a quote for the insurance after my flood. Realised I knew him and he'd done work here in the past. He'd changed the name of his business.

Just had a huge thunderstorm, absolutely tipped with rain and electricity went off 3 times. Back now, obviously. Light showers were forecast today, but it has been sunny before the storm.

Do you know what this houseplant is, please?

Thank you very much, my friend will be pleased.

Thinking of you Sunny. I hope your cute kittens are helping. Maybe your Paul has met my Paul, who knows what happens next. My Paul left this world in 1998 aged 53. After the misery things do pick up, life carries on. But the memories are still there.

Well hello again

Get well soon Mike. I agree with Fidget about the painkillers.

A friend has sent me this photo of a houseplant that she was given in a plant swap, but she doesn't know what it is. Are any of you able to identify it, please?

Stop contemplating mortality, punkdoc. Take advantage of having a good rest. Make sure you rest, that doesn't mean gardening. At least winter is coming on so do garden planning instead while you are resting. You can get over this.

Going to supermarket, veg has run out and getting fed up with courgettes from the garden. There are a few runner beans though. Need fruit too, none from the garden as the May frost did for the blossom.

Kitty said "Strap-on lawn aerator sandals .  Managed about three steps before getting stuck fast." Same here, also went in the bin.
I bought one of these, a manual garden tiller. Couldn't turn it in my clay with limestone lumps and it did such a small bit at a time. Gave it to a friend. She liked it, but she had light soil.

Punkdoc, a get well soon from me too.

Good luck for the storm everyone

I hope the storm is passing and no one here has had any more damage. I have friends in County Sligo, I hope their house is OK, they are here in Dordogne on holiday at the moment.
