HELLO FORKERS! September Edition

Posted: 03/09/2016 at 10:51

Morning all.

Going to a craft fair in the village today and probably out for a walk. Drove a lot yesterday.

Have a good day in Brighton, Chicky. Just missed you, we were there last Sunday and Monday.

Enjoy Malvern Obelixx, hope the motorways will be kind to you. We were stuck near the M20 (that we would have taken but couldn't) because a lorry had driven into a bridge and the bridge fell down.

Will be watching Poldark on Catch up, have an aerial here but can't seem to get a signal.

Welcome back RB, have missed you.

Saw Poldark on Catch-Up TV so we settled down to watch it, but it was just a resumé of previous series, hadn't realised it hasn't started yet.

Houghton Hall was lovely. Went to Felbrigg Hall Hall today, wonderful walled garden, still full of colour. Will post pics when I get a moment. Having to share the cottage lap top with OH.

Morning all. Welcome raisingirl. My coffee is the opposite of Dove's, milky and sweet.

We are off to Houghton Hall today to see the dahlias. Looks like being a nice day and forecast next week is good, but we are back to France on Thursday. Time goes so fast when we are in England.

DD why don't you just relax and read a book? Don't have to be busy all the time, unless it's unavoidable of course because of work etc.

You could let the seeds ripen for the birds in winter.

Have a lovely time in Corfu. I've been 3 times when I was young, we went for our honeymoon. Beautiful.

Where is everyone? It's hours since anyone posted. This thread used to be so chatty.

Cooking dinner, just waiting for water to simmer for the rice. Thought I'd pop in.

That's very effective, Dove.

More beautiful photos from Scotland.

I love the streams in Scotland, don't know when I'll next go there now we've bought the Norfolk cottage and my brother's son has moved into the bedroom we stayed in. Brother lives in Crieff, he walks a lot too, with his 2 Border Collies;

Hello all. Haven't read back yet.

We are back in Norfolk from weekend down south. Birthday party in Tonbridge was lovely, good family and friends event. Then stayed with friends in Brighton, I really know I am not a townie, would hate to live in a town flat, but it was fun looking round the lanes and the sea front. Then stayed with my sister near Uckfield, in the country. Dinner nearly ready, chicken ready meal bought in a Service Station Waitrose on the way back.

Hello all. Nora GW says the weather thread is getting too full, so here is a new one.

The weather has been warm and sunny today on our journey from Eastbourne to Norfolk.

Here is a link back to the previous thread:

Windows 10 installed itself, just when I was in the middle of writing an email. Didn't want it, don't care for it, Windows 7 was better. Laptop has been slower ever since.

Off to Kent soon.
