Hello Forkers - May Edition

But when Internet is slow I can't look at Photobucket links. I've said before I have missed a lot of Berghill's photos and some of yours.

Hello Forkers - May Edition

I arrived at the hospital to visit baby Elise around 6.30pm, later than I meant. There was loads of traffic on the motorway, more like the M25 than the A20! 20 minutes of almost static jam too. I was late leaving because other son and DIL turned up with their new baby and 2 little boys with presents for his brother and SIL. Had to pack in a rush and didn't eat the snack lunch I'd planned.

Finally ate at 10pm with Son 1. His 2 little daughters were so excited by the arrival of their sister and were even excited because Granny (me) was coming to stay that they were a real handful this evening and didn't want to go to bed.

Had a good long cuddle with Elise in hospital. She was wide awake, not crying and very interested in everything around her. Her sisters were jumping on the bed with their little cousin.

Morning all.

I'm going to meet my new GD today. Had a call from son yesterday. They had thought DIL's mother would be coming but she and her OH dropped in at the hospital to see the new baby and announced they were off to the mountains for a long weekend in their holiday mansion. They are French aristocrats. Son has to work on Monday and Tuesday, important meetings and he will be managing director in July. They have 2 little girls and DIL won't be out of hospital until Wednesday. In France new Mums stay in hospital for 4 days. So I'm off in a couple of hours, it's a 5 hour drive.

Coming soon... At last ....Chateau de Gateau

Kitty, a Troc is a second hand furniture and household items place, usually in a big bare building. Our local one sells stuff for other people. They don't swap. I know of a similar place in Norwich which is called an emporium.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Spent the day in the hot sun, 30°, that's the shade temp, in the veg garden. I had to plant stuff as may be going to stay with son because of new GD. I'm getting behind anyway and my plants would have needed re-potting if not planted.
Planted runner beans, courgettes, cucumbers, tomatoes, sweet peppers, lettuces, broccoli, French marigolds. Watered it all well.
Think I may have overdone it though, felt dizzy and have a headache.

Oh yum, slated caramel ice lollies, wish I had some. I've been toiling in the veg garden in full sun. Think I've overdone it. Had 3 glasses of elderflower cordial. Headache started.

They aren't the decorative sort of cobweb, Dove, then add the dust!

Thanks Joyce. So long as the cobwebs don't get in my hair, they aren't the pretty sort they're fluffy and messy!

They are my furthest away family, other son is quite near, daughter 1 is 2 1/2hrs away and daughter 2 is a bit over an hour.

You said it was on going RB, was anything taken? What a horrid shock.

Hello all, 11th Grandchild was born early this morning! They've called her after me but not quite so we don't get confused - Elise.

I'm very behind in the garden because of going to England in May. I'm frantically trying to get stuff planted in the veg garden today in case I go to see the new little one very soon. Son and DIL live 5 hrs drive away. She's their third daughter. I'm planting out the runner beans, tomatoes, red peppers, broccoli, lettuces. Then all the flower beds but one need weeding (but that will have to wait) and plants I've grown and the rest of the ones I bought in England need planting, 4 clematis as well. Nearly finished all the annuals in the pots. House is full of cobwebs.
