HELLO FORKERS! October Edition

Posted: 22/10/2016 at 21:42

Been a busy day. Phone man this morning while I was arranging tables and doing HW for the Bring and Share lunch I'm hosting for 25 tomorrow. Made salads and cooked chicken this afternoon then went to see OH singing with the choir. Was just in time to start recording Strictly while I made supper, which we then went and ate in front of the TV. OH only watches it for Darcy Bussell, but he fell asleep.

You'll still have the photo.


Phone repair man/electrician came this morning. He's replaced a white plastic box, added another, changed some wires, done something in the cellar and tested all 6 phone sockets. Hopefully now Internet will work better.


OH is singing in a concert later this afternoon. I'll go and watch him. Hopefully be back in time for Strictly.

Thank you for mentioning your Bressingham photos, Dove. I'd missed them. Lovely.


Congratulations Hosta, on weight and the rock.


Welcome back Topbird.


I didn't have a lie in this morning and was too busy to come here! I've done lots of sewing, repairing children's clothes and the cut in his duvet cover that one naughty little grandson had done. Daughter suggested an outing but the grand children didn't want to, they were happy to play together. There was a frost this morning but the sun came out and it got quite warm. They played in the garden. I made Cottage Pie for lunch and we all went out for a walk, but some took their bikes.


Now I'm back home as daughter's husband will be home for the weekend. First daughter and her OH return from Venice on Sunday and will collect her 3.

I seem to have missed this this thread, but I remember Dove saying she would post photos. Thank you Dove, lovely photos. Good to see the gardens in autumn. I've seen them in June and July, but not so late. Earlier in the year the grasses are much less evident. Flowers reign.

Morning all. Happy anniversary Pat, I hope you have a good day.


Welcome back Pdoc and Bushman. Gosh that was a brave and unselfish thing to do Pdoc, must be why you are a Doc and why you get depressed, you must have seen so much misery and not thought of how it could affect you.


Have a lovely time DD.
Off to my daughter's.

Morning all.
That's a pretty bird Pat, looks like a Kingfisher with the wrong colouring.


Off to daughter's in a minute.

My GP hasn't mentioned physio for my shoulder, only cortisone injections, which I've had before, they were horrid. And no tennis, ever again


Yvie Stevie, you must be the first person I've "met" who is learning Turkish!


Joyce, unfortunately the smaller rabbit died. Daughter took them both to the vet and the vet said the smaller one shouldn't have been offered for sale. He gave them a letter so they could get another healthier one. I think that's why that grandson wanted it, because it was the runt of the litter.

Fantastic photos, Fairy.


I agree Papi-Jo. There is a tree in the pavement outside DIL's house which has deformed the pavement quite badly and it's roots are spreading into her front garden. She asked the Council about it and they said it was protected. What happens when her house is damaged I wonder?

Crikey! How do you find time to do gardening as well?! Do you do housework, cooking and washing?
