Hello Villaverde, we looked at 2 places in Eye. But we live in France too, can't sell my French house for various reasons. 2nd OH sold his French house and bought the cottage in Norfolk, so we lead a double life!

Hosta, there are a lot of very uncertain English people in France because of Brexit and it can take years to sell a house here.

We've been to the SM. Promotion on potting compost, I now have 6 sacks so can sow my seeds

Great hat MU

Our school song was so tuneless and boring I've forgotten it, but I remember the motto "Strength in Work", didn't care for it at the time.

I'd never heard of rheumatic shoulders when I was young, only hips and knees, but now I've got them

Been to the SM, they were having a gardening promotion, compost on offer, bought 6 sacks. Now I can go and sow my seeds.

Morning all.

We are going shopping, no compost left for my seeds, out of fresh fruit, veg and milk.

I like Framlingham, pretty village, lovely castle. Were thinking of cottage hunting round there, but ended up looking around Diss which was cheaper.

Your pond is lovely, Chris.

A lot came out in the garden while we were away in England last week.

Oh bother, there is a problem either with the site or with Internet, photos won't post. I wonder if they will copy and paste instead. No they won't, but 2 have appeared.

I think Obelixx has written a very good description of a forum.

I'm one who has made a lasting friend from the forum, I will be staying with her in May. We have met up several times.

Hello girls, we've had a lovely day with dentist son, lovely DIL and little grandsons. Went to the carnaval in our local town where son lives. Watched the floats and got covered in confetti and the littlies had a go on a littlie carousel.

Design a tea towel competition sounds fun , Lantana could design a green one

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.
