Hello Forkers - April edition

Posted: 04/04/2017 at 08:50

Morning all.

Just after last post here and contacting Nora (why didn't I think of sending a PM?) the Internet disappeared altogether.  France Telecom told me they'd been having problems and they were working on it. I wasn't the only one with the problem. They said it would be back this morning, which it is. Seems a bit better, I can type, scrolling is still a bit jerky, but it hasn't got stuck - yet! They also said the technician was coming at lunchtime to repair the line that the tree fell on, it's been temporarily repaired and is still on the ground. So I went to look in the afternoon but he hadn't been.

Did gardening yesterday.

Sorry to hear you weren't feeling well, Pat, but it was a good thing to get everything checked out.

Delphiniums and rosebuds Pansy?? It's only just April! 

Looks like a nice day here, I should be outside. Spent ages trying to get onto the site. It just doesn't work properly when Internet is poor. No problems when we are in Norfolk.

Hope you feel better soon SGL.

Morning all.

Good news about baby's passport, I hope they will be able to visit as soon as baby is well again.

Trouble typing on here again. I think more people left the forum because the site doesn't work properly if you have feeble Internet, rather than because there was any unpleasantness between posters. I'm getting to the stage when I feel like leaving, it's such a waste of time clicking and clicking and nothing happens. In Norfolk the Internet is good and I don't have troubles. I post on another forum and there is no bother with that. Does anyone know how to contact Nora?

They are usually grown as annuals. Fairly cheap to buy, plant new ones every year.

Back from daughter 2. Been gardening - there's a surprise! Planted the snowdrops and cyclamen I gave her and weeded the beds around the house. She's planted a hedge since I last saw her. Her OH cooked lunch, slow roast pork, asparagus and chips. He's been making the veg patch. Onions and cabbages growing already. Carrots sown and potatoes planted.

Morning all.

It must be so awful to have your house flooded. I've just read that people are driving there to look and laugh but not to help. Wonder if that's true or just journalist gossip.

Going to daughter 2 for lunch. Have just dug up snowdrops and cyclamen for her woody bit.

Watched Beechgrove, first time for ages, normally asleep. Here is an hour later than you and I tend to go to bed quite late here, sometimes 1am, but that's mid night to you. Earlier last night as OH is away.

My cat's mother and grandmother were strays that my daughter used to feed. Daughter managed to catch her when she was 3 - 4 months old, a hissing, scratching wild thing. But now she's a lot tamer and, at last, at 12 years old, has decided she's going to be a semi indoors cat. Maybe because my lovely Border Collie died in September and cat wouldn't come in when he was in.
