Hello Forkers ... August edition

Morning all.

I think wind turbines are quite attractive. A lot better than pylons and nuclear power stations. We stopped the car in Norfolk recently to listen to some in a field by the road. They just sounded like the wind, may even have been the wind, it was a windy day.

I had lunch, gammon, runner beans, courgette, tomato (from garden) so I shall just have a glass of gazpacho tonight. No OH to cook for as he's in Norfolk.

Have been watering and dead heading. Meant to tie up some dahlias but it was hot outside, 30°. Did some housework instead this afternoon.

Oh dear Bob! How long will it be before you get tea? Maybe you need a gas ring. But no electricity means no Internet either, unless you have the right sort of phone but then that will need charging.

What a blue sky Chicky! I hope you've had a lovely holiday. I hope home isn't a let down. But I always like to get home after a holiday. I know what you mean about being "the invisible man", I've felt like that sometimes!

My Dad used to take that!

I've been up for a bit. OH has left to catch the plane for England, going to Norfolk for 6 days.

I've been deadheading dahlias, but I should not have worn my slippers, heavy dew. They are now sopping wet and covered in lawn mowings.

Hope you don't feel too bad with the lurgy, Pat.

I get golden syrup from a hypermarché, Super U. They've started selling mincemeat too, for mince pies. I used to get it on trips to England.

You obviously don't have blackbirds, Clary!

When you said smelly, Obelixx, I was imagining "gone off" - but that sounds yummy!

Lunch was bring and share so people had brought chicken, leek quiche, sausages and salads, then blackberry mousse, fruit cake, kiwi cheesecake and apple tart.

Just been watering the pots.

Hope you had a good holiday, GWRS.

Love water melon, but OH doesn't.

We had a chicken stir fry, at last it was fine enough (but a bit chilly!) to eat outside. Nothing we want to watch either. Been chatting, think we'll go to bed soon.

Maybe the children wanted to be together, Obelixx, or maybe they have other family members and friends coming to stay in the other rooms. But what a coincidence to meet them!

Been making bread and then marinating chicken for the bring and share lunch we are going to tomorrow.
