HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

Fence is repaired and horses are back where they should be. Electric fence working.

Water here is very hard, on limestone.

At the moment my cat is in disgrace, she keeps digging up my pots and I've run out of anti-cat stuff, which doesn't work very well anyway. She keeps walking all over my car and leaving muddy footprints on it. Miss my dog, he never destroyed the garden. OH doesn't want another dog, he says we come and go too much nowadays and a dog might outlive him. Thing is, I don't want any dog, I want a replica of my Tigger.

We sometimes go to Evensong when in England near a cathedral and there's a choir. We went to York Minster recently, but it was a Monday and we found there was no choir on Mondays. Afraid we didn't stay, just not the same.

Well done Doghouse. Wife should have been pleased you'd saved money and got the job done quicker!

Loana, if you click on Granny Beach's name you will she that she lives near Eastbourne.

Morning all.

Farmer has delivered the hay. Trouble is they don't like the hay he delivered the time before last so there is still quite a bit left which makes it hard to know if they need a new lot. It all looks fine to me, he never has best quality though, ordinary poor soil meadow hay. He says there must be a smell in it. In December they go into the winter paddock and I will have to feed them. No more helping themselves. They are very wasteful and pull it out then tread in it. Ok when there is some grazing as well.

We must mend the fence.

Took OH's car to the garage this morning, needs servicing, then MOT.

This is what I'd come here to say - Just been outside in the dark catching 3 escaped horses. New hay is coming tomorrow, they have hay in the shelter but I think they've turned up their noses as the quality wasn't good. Have put them in the winter paddock where there is some grass. Found a broken fence post by the water butts, will have to mend it tomorrow. Thank God it didn't happen when we were away or this weekend when I'm with son. I was watching TV when I heard them outside the window, think they'd come to tell me.

Weeded and cut down dead stuff in kitchen terrace bed today. Surprised to fill a whole wheelbarrow! Planted Sundisc daffodils in the bed which I bought when we were in Norfolk. Haven't seen them in France.

Oh dear Fidget, how heartbreaking. Does that mean all your beautiful underwater photos?

Didn't know what it was, seems it stores recorded TV programmes. Does that mean Poldark, Strictly etc?

In that case we'll look out for the Belgian Monk next time we are in Norwich, maybe January.

Mucked out the field shelter, shoulder has survived. Think Dove was right, it didn't involve reaching up. Then I weeded the narrow kitchen terrace bed, was amazed to get a whole barrowload of stuff out of it. Planted Sundisc daffodils in it.

I wonder if the Belgian Monk was the place we saw in Norwich last year, looked lovely outside, menu was great but when we went in the music was so loud we couldn't  stand it and had to leave.

I've just found out there is a lady here in Dordogne who has a barn she uses for storing donated clothes, household equipment etc for refugees and people on very low income. The stuff has to be sorted and packed into boxes, then it's take to Syria, or Paris where it's sent for refugees from the ex Calais camp or to a place for the homeless and poor of Limoges. I've volunteered a day of helping to sort it on Friday next week.
