Hello Forkers December

I haven't caught up here either.


Back from the Carol Service. So many people away or moved back to England. One year there were 225, more English than French. Today there were 105, possibly more French than English. I made 10 litres mulled wine this morning, so did my friend, most was drunk but there are quite a lot of mince pies left. Most of mine were eaten though, I'm glad, didn't really want them back. The Abbey looked pretty with the bouquets on the pews but it was freezing, no heating The singing was lovely and the organist is really good.

Now shall make a quick stir fry and watch the Strictly results.

Garden bonfires are now forbidden in France, not that people take much notice.

Strictly is back!

I think Claudia should go too. My 2 favourites from the beginning have been Danny and Louise (Daisy was too), I hope one of them wins. Ore has flashes of brilliance but then doesn't keep it up.

Agree with that Dove. Mine are definitely faulty, flat, broad, too big for my height and the soles burn when I stand still for too long. Yet there are so many beautiful shoes for sale that my feet won't fit into, so some people must have nice feet.

What is your weather like? (2)

Do you love them and can you stroke them?

Morning all.


I hope your pain will be a lot less than you expect, Flowers. Sounds horrid. At least the resting up is in winter.


I stubbed the toe next to the little toe a few years ago on a wooden garden chair. Nothing broken, but the nail has grown back thick and deformed, tricky to cut. Hope yours is OK, Dove.


I have a friend from Perth but her second marriage was to a French man so she lives in Dordogne now, but goes to Perth in winter for two months to see her daughters and grandchildren.


More cards to write and mince pies to bake. If there's time this afternoon I could plant some more tulips.


Internet seems to be working this morning.
