HELLO FORKERS! July Edition

Done lots of watering, done ironing, typed up minutes from meeting. Going to stay with son tomorrow. He has Internet, well, he did last time I stayed. Taking laptop. Smallest granddaughter's 2nd birthday. They live 5 hours drive away. OH is staying at home to look after animals and garden. Back Saturday.

What a lovely photo, David. How did you get so close? Good to see you back.


My camera is a Canon Ixus 285 HS. I've set it to low enough pixels to post easily on forums and emails. I had a Nikon Coolpix S3600 that OH bought me in New York last year, already it's zoom doesn't work anymore and I never liked it, so he kindly bought me a Canon (which I do like). But I'm not a proper photographer although I take loads of photos. I like something that fits in my handbag and doesn't weigh a ton. My handbag already weighs a ton!

Oh dear, Bushman, that sounded bad, glad you're on the mend.


Had a Committee meeting this morning and been dealing with paperwork.

Haven't been able to join in today as OH put my Tomtom on my laptop to update and it took hours and hours.


We tried out that new restaurant for lunch, quite simple, but nice, 13€ for 3 courses, about £10.


Haven't done anything I meant to today, felt tired, although the weather has been agreeably cooler. Slept through "Escape to the Country".


I once had a cheesecloth smocked top and velvet flares.


RB, that blue sandwich made me laugh.

Super photos Sheps and Nut.


I'm just a happysnapper so my photos are more likely to be on garden photo threads. But here is a rose from a garden that I visited with my daughter and the view from a bedroom window in my daughter's new house, just because I think they are pretty.

Morning all. I'm glad it's cloudy and cooler today. Was 30° yesterday, saps my energy.


Going to try a new restaurant for lunch, a friend is coming with us. Another friend recommended it.

First time I've watched a tennis match from beginning to end for years! Was gripped  Although it was only 3 sets I think Milos played well and is one to watch out for. Well done Andy!


Just been watching a film called "The Help" about black maids in the USA in the 60s. Was gripped by that too.


Been very hot today, not gardening weather, except for watering, but dried 2 loads of washing.

Thank you, it's a lovely garden. We went there a few years ago but earlier in the year, good to see it a bit later.
