Hello Forkers January 2017 Edition

Sounds a fairly sensible thing to do, Liri  Especially if it's as cold as it's been here.

We are having chicken and mushroom vol au vents from the left over roast chicken we had on Friday. With Brussels sprouts and runner beans. Then I'll make chicken noodle soup with the carcass.

I've spent some time on the sofa with the latest plant catalogue.

For me, it's a good TV night, Midsomer Murders, Call the Midwife then a new one, Apple Tree Yard that I thought I'd give a try. But they are more women's subjects than men's.

I wonder why there are so many silver cars? But OH bought one because it was on special offer and the last one in the showroom. Mine is red, red is my favourite car colour.

I have an old sleeping bag for when I sit on the sofa. I've got to the state that when I visit people and sit on their sofas I feel something is missing! I shall be in it this afternoon.

Sounds colder in Suffolk than here this morning, for a change. Getting warmer here -5° this morning, but it's grey and cloudy.

Sorry about your back, Wonky. Good thing you aren't still doing that heavy gardening job. That was a good series, I saw it.

Looking forward to Call the Midwife.

More fabulous photos!

It's not the driving so mind I'd mind, I'm used to long journeys - but on French roads which are straighter with less traffic than English ones. But 2 hours, maybe 3, is the most I could walk. Fairy must be pretty fit. I used to go out hacking for 3- 4 hours and walk 1 hour but my horse did the rest! Now the right knee can't take it.

My OH loves lime pickle too, but I have never made it.

One good thing about all this resting with a bug is that the tendonitis in my shoulder is almost cured.

Internet slow and my typing keeps not appearing on the page.

Just been filling up horses water with watering cans, outside taps still frozen, although it was +7° this afternoon.

What is your weather like? (2)

My garden is an English style garden. Summer is hardest as it can get very hot and it needs a lot of watering. A lot of plants survive the cold, some of the salvias struggle.
