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

Posted: 25/10/2017 at 16:00

I've only stayed in hospitals to have babies, too. My first, over 41 years ago was in Queen Mary's, Roehampton, where I had done part of my SRN training and a 3 month obstetric course. I was lucky and was given the biggest private room. I was in for a week too. I was going to train as a midwife at Addenbrooke's, but I met first OH at Queen Mary's so married him instead. He had broken his leg in a car crash on the A3 and I was working in men's orthopaedics.

Crikey Dove, that is my idea of revolting! Don't like totally raw steak, don't like eggs  I've been to Brasserie Zedel, on your recommendation. Loved it but didn't have that.

Poor little Dudley, he looks so sweet, I hope he is getting better.

I trained my Border Collie to wait for permission before eating. He was very good. I've probably said this before but I was so proud of him! A local farmer left a joint of venison on the little table by the kitchen door when I was out shopping. I came home to find Tigger sitting on the door mat. He hadn't touched it.

Morning all.

Dove, have you really eaten true French andouillettes? They are disgusting, made with pork and intestines and usually smell of what you do in the loo. Ugh! None of my French friends or French children in law likes them.

Daughter 2 is coming tomorrow, with her 2 children. We are going to try to load her mare into the trailer, after lunch, to take to a horsey place to be trained. A friend of mine is coming to help.

Trip to the SM this morning for food for them all.

David Austin Roses, are they worth it?

They have different dispatch dates for different ordering dates. My OH ordered 3 Gertrude Jekyll for me for Christmas, but he didn't order until early December so the roses came early February (I think, can't remember exactly).

Hope you had a good time, GWRS.

Gardened today, emptied summer bedding and re-planted 6 toughs and 5 large pots and cleared the sundial bed ready for planting tomorrow. I didn't cover the cold frames during last weeks storm and some of the baby pansies are dying from rotten roots  OH did mowing. Lovely sunny day.

I think the French way of paying the doctor is good, but maybe the reimbursement of about 2/3 of it by the French health service is an expensive way of administrating it. Why not pay a small set fee each time you go to the GP? Or a charge for meals in hospital, like in France? You would have to pay for a meal at home anyway.

Just received the annual mouth and foot painters cards and brochure. I usually send them something, thinking it's a charity. OH has looked them up, it's a scam run by business people in Lichtenstein, which is a tax haven. Very little, maybe 3%, actually goes to handicapped people. It's gone in the bin.

Morning all.

The walled garden was a bit slow, but beautiful. However more veggie garden and apples than billowing flowerbeds of perennials, which is what I like. Not much commentary.

Not a new pony, LP, she's my daughter's mare, hasn't been ridden for years. 15.2hh, Arab x Lusitano, bit flighty. Daughter of my old mare and a friend's Arab stallion.

Hoping to plant up some pots today, weather looks promising.

Dove, tell us what your exercises are and we could do them with you! Probably be good for us. I hope they improve your knees.
