HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

Joyce, it had something to do with being widowed and the amount was set for everyone, then at 65 it's based on contributions and we haven't lived in France for long enough.

Happy birthday, Obelixx. Enjoy your lunch.

Feeling very gloomy. The French pension people say that now I'm over 65 my pension will be less than it was. I've lost around 200€ a month off the English one thanks to Brexit and the exchange rate.

Memories of the past

I was a Scott Walker fan too.

My mother made hobby horses out of broomsticks and old socks stuffed for my sister and me which we raced around on.

Loana, I have had to stop riding recently too, arthritis, but I still have my horses, one is 22 and the other 17. My daughter may take the younger one, the other has retired, bad back, but she was a nervy difficult ride.

Back from son's. Was a horrendous drive. Started on country roads through fields and golden forests with dappled sunlight. Arrived at the motorway at Vierzon and the rain tipped down, then the wind started up. It was quite scary around Chateauroux. Didn't stop raining until Limoges.

Log man had been so we stacked a load of logs until it got too dark.

Drove back to Dordogne from edge of Burgundy today, from son's. As soon as I got to the motorway at Vierzon there was torrential rain and strong winds. We were doing about 50mph a lot of the time. Rained all the way to Limoges, 2 hours. Whole journey was 5 1/2 hours.

I hope I sleep better tonight. Cat was looking pleased with himself and there was a dead mouse on the sitting room floor.

Going home tomorrow after I've taken granddaughter to school. Hope the weather isn't too awful for the drive.

Hope OH has recorded Strictly and the results.

System Glitch?

Kitty, David K's posts didn't disappear because of a glitch on the site, he asked to be removed completely, which meant his posts had to go too.

Worked for me, someone who went to my old school had posted, didn't know her but she mentioned a girl in my younger sister's class.
