Hello Forkers - March Thread

Crikey, a lot has happened since my last post.

Hello Sunflower Lady, but I still think of you by your Christian name. I hope life has been going well for you.

I have been up a ladder cutting old and dead bits out of Felicité and Perpetué, then I came in to do late lunch as it's OH's choir evening. We eat in front of Escape to the Country, but that was interrupted by the news of the terrorist? attack at Westminster. Apparently some French students on a visit were mown down by the car on the bridge.

Just spoken to son on phone who has asked me round as soon as my loaf of bread is cooked.

Don't like mustard!

Putting off going outside, not in a rose pruning mood.

I have a large rectangular stone for a mounting block, but I got worried in case I fell off in the middle of nowhere on my own. My riding friends, except one whose horse won't go out, have all given up now that we are 27!

I had to give up because of arthritis. Hard getting on and off and Lena is quite a fizzy, but fun, ride and I don't trust my right knee any more.

I laughed  But I quite like Nicola Sturgeon although I don't agree with her, she's feisty and I think she thinks she is really doing her best for Scotland.

Hello Rosemummy, I wonder if the little one put his trousers on or went shopping without and got cold!

The sun went in, it got chilly, well it already was, only 2° this morning, so I still haven't gone outside.

Looks a lovely place to have breakfast. Don't suppose you pass through Dordogne on your way?

Sun was out, but clouds coming. Must get out rose pruning before it rains. Felicité et Perpetué is full of dead wood.

Pretty chicken, Philippa. All these lovely photos of pets and I don't have a dog any more  I have a semi-wild cat, a stray cat's daughter, but she is getting tamer. My main pet is my horse who was 18 on Monday, but she can't come indoors. Here's my girl.

Bother the photo won't post, just over 1 MB. I'll try another one, but it's less recent. That was just under 1MB. I thought this site took photos up to 2 MB.
