HELLO FORKERS!

Best wait til you're a Granny, like me! Then you can sleep peacefully and give it back when it cries! But you can cuddle whenever you visit

HELLO FORKERS!

The farmer delivered the next 6 months worth of hay for the horses today, so I had to muck out the field shelter in the 32° heat and tidy the garage. Though he did remove the worst with the shovel on the tractor. Horses had been in that shelter the week before, a horse makes a barrowload of poo a day and I have 4! Hadn't had time as we'd had visitors (OH family) staying.

Evening all. You've written about 10 pages since I last looked. Had to control myself on son's computer system, he doesn't have Broadband and pays a fee for a limited time that I nearly used up!

Rose was lovely, very chatty, new baby sister either asleep or howling, but cute and Rose loves her already. I'm home now, everything needed watering, left in cool dampness on Monday, today it was 32° in the shade.

Beaus Mum, I have a large country farmhouse in Dordogne. This is the general idea of the 3 terraced bits, then there is more round the other side.

I'm the sane one, but I think Lily or is it Mrs. Garden, no, must be KEF always says she is.

Outrageous sexism!!!!!

Not all men are that daft! My second OH (we were both widowed) cooked for himself after his wife died, I do it now because we each do what we are best at. He notices new additions to the garden, he even chose my latest rose " Lady Emma Hamilton". I'm so glad we found each other, we have become real and equal friends. Although we can both laugh when one of us does something silly!

Stacey, there are garden designs with a bit set aside for toys and something soft on the ground, like bark chippings, but cars like Edd's, I think, are better on a terrace.

I've thoroughly enjoyed reading this thread and I agree with a lot of it.

Dove, I couldn't get those plastic riding boots on either and I've got big flat feet. I have big hands and wear men's gloves, so that's not a problem.

I was pretty strong when I was young, but I still liked feeling feminine when men offered to carry things and open doors, but my sister didn't, she went on marches for rights for women. Men and women are different, thank God, more exciting like that, vive la difference! But women should be paid the same as a man for doing the same job as a man. Probably are in England, wonder about France sometimes! I have found English men to be better mannered and more gallant than French ones.

My OH does the mowing, not because he's a man, but because he isn't knowledgeable about plants and, being older, he can't weed on his knees! He does the vacuuming and I do the dusting, that's a matter of preference for both of us, I cook, he washes up. But we are both retired. When I had 4 small children with OH No 1 I was lucky that he earned enough for me to stay at home. He worked long hours so I did the cooking, cleaning, shopping etc. One has to adapt to your lifestyle.
