Hello Forkers - March Thread

Hello all. We've had a lovely day with my son No. 2, the dentist, his sweet expecting (May) wife and 2 small grandsons. It was Mardi Gras Carnaval in our local town, so we went there after lunch. Son lives in town so it was walking distance. The little boys had a couple of goes on the carousel for littlies, we watched the floats, bands and dancers go by and had confetti thrown all over us.


Then back to their place when small ones were tired, had fresh squeezed orange juice, , then son showed us his new (old really) classic car, a red Triumph Spitfire, convertible, with a wicker picnic basket strapped on the back. He took OH out in it. I had a turn on the day he bought it.


Came home just in time to feed the horses.


Now I shall read back and see how you've all spent your Sundays.

Gorgeous blossom photos, Chicky.


At last I've cleaned the greenhouse, washed the polycarbonate panes inside and out and washed the shelves. The outside was filthy, why hadn't the rain washed it? Trestles are put up waiting for plant babies. Sowed broad beans, but the compost was too coarse to sow more seeds, must buy some more.


Cloudy and colder than Norfolk was, but it has been warm here when we were away.

Have been cleaning the filthy GH, come in for a cuppa.


The housesitter is actually paid for staying here and feeding animals. I had a super couple once, but they moved back to England. They left the house clean and I had 2 dogs to walk then. They arrived with their car full of everything they needed and didn't touch any of my stuff, not even loo rolls. But in those days, pre 2nd OH, I only went away once a  year for a summer holiday with my student children, after 1st OH died.

Morning all. Cloudy.


Magnolia Leonard Messel is out. Daffodils still out but more of the different sorts now, yellow trumpets on their way out.


Feel a bit cross with housesitter. Our regular one wasn't free. OH is a friend on Facebook, because they are in the same choir, but OH rarely bothers with FB. Have seen that housesitter posted photos of my house and horses on Facebook and one day said he'd had a busy day tidying a garden, but those photos weren't my garden. He's gone off with OH's wire that feeds the transformer for his computer, he didn't get the post in (he had a list and that was on it), and he's eaten nearly all the honey that I bought in a local bazaar.

Evening all. We are back in France. Luton airport was having building works and was very crowded, hard to find a seat. The plane was late then when we got to Bordeaux the airport was being evacuated because of a suspicious ownerless suitcase. But the drive to Luton was OK, daffodils all over the place on the way.

Morning all, leaving here at lunchtime to catch the plane.


I laughed like a drain too at the Pottery Throwdown.

Good Pottery Throwdown, so funny when Freya's toilet shot water out all over the judge!

Enjoyed Oxburgh Hall, but it was lovely and sunny when we left, nearly didn't take my coat, but then the sun went in and a chilly wind got up. No snowdrops, but lots of daffodils were out, but it was the house we went to see.
