Hello Forkers ... August edition

Posted: 19/08/2017 at 15:00

Have got stuck into HW instead of gardening. Some bits are long overdue  I expect the spiders are cursing me, the ones that escaped that is! The new window washing thing is fine but it only does my bigger panes. There are a lot of small paned glass doors here. Dining room and kitchen floors washed.

Buying our cottage in Norfolk was a bit complicated. OH had to get his money from selling his French house back into England. Also buying my car, you can't just give a cheque anymore, or even use a debit card for that sort of thing. I had to send copies of my French identity card to the banks to get them to transfer the money to the garage.

Morning all.

Glad you are better, Wonky.

Think there's something the matter with me, haven't felt like gardening since July! The Gardener's Club are coming for a BBQ on Tuesday and I don't feel bothered. Must make a cake for it as there is to be a small competition, best cake, best jam, best pickle, funniest vegetable sort of thing. We all put counters by our favourite and we are all allowed to taste. My cake was 2nd last year and my flower arrangement won.

Have bought a thing for cleaning windows in Lidl, shall give it a go today.

Came here to tell you about Brucie, but Dove beat me to it. Some people you just can't replace, he was the sort of person you think will be around for ever.

Hurray, Yvie!  I hope you will be able to enjoy your holiday now.

Love crab salad.

Been to the SM. It poured while I was in there, made a racket on the roof.

Pool man is coming to change the pump for the filter. Water is getting quite grubby.

Morning all.

It's Yvie's daughter who has had a scan because of a lump. Yvie has mentioned it and I replied to Lily P about it yesterday morning. I hope the result is good. Hugs to Yvie if she drops in.

Out to harvest my onions, then off to the SM.

We are south of you and have had quite a bit of rain recently, ground is damp. August has been very poor for the holiday makers in Dordogne. Nice day today but drizzle forecast for tomorrow.

Couldn't get on the site earlier, it said "runtime error".

Hello Perki. Did you mean me? I don't have a helianthus, I have Rudbeckia Goldquelle, heliopsis and a tall yellow helenium.

Morning all. Sunny here.

Well done littlest Chicklet! Great results.

Lily P, Yvie's firstborn found a lump in her neck, she mentioned it on the Resurrected thread. I hope the scan results are OK and it's just a simple thing that can be removed. Hugs to you Yvie.

DD sent me an email. A TV company is sending a crew to Chateau de Gateau to interview ex Pats about Brexit.

I'm missing OH, he's back on Sunday. But there's lots of gardening to do now it's not raining.
