Hello Forkers ... August edition

Oh dear Bob! How long will it be before you get tea? Maybe you need a gas ring. But no electricity means no Internet either, unless you have the right sort of phone but then that will need charging.

What a blue sky Chicky! I hope you've had a lovely holiday. I hope home isn't a let down. But I always like to get home after a holiday. I know what you mean about being "the invisible man", I've felt like that sometimes!

My Dad used to take that!

I've been up for a bit. OH has left to catch the plane for England, going to Norfolk for 6 days.

I've been deadheading dahlias, but I should not have worn my slippers, heavy dew. They are now sopping wet and covered in lawn mowings.

Hope you don't feel too bad with the lurgy, Pat.

I get golden syrup from a hypermarché, Super U. They've started selling mincemeat too, for mince pies. I used to get it on trips to England.

You obviously don't have blackbirds, Clary!

When you said smelly, Obelixx, I was imagining "gone off" - but that sounds yummy!

Lunch was bring and share so people had brought chicken, leek quiche, sausages and salads, then blackberry mousse, fruit cake, kiwi cheesecake and apple tart.

Just been watering the pots.

Hope you had a good holiday, GWRS.

Love water melon, but OH doesn't.

We had a chicken stir fry, at last it was fine enough (but a bit chilly!) to eat outside. Nothing we want to watch either. Been chatting, think we'll go to bed soon.

Maybe the children wanted to be together, Obelixx, or maybe they have other family members and friends coming to stay in the other rooms. But what a coincidence to meet them!

Been making bread and then marinating chicken for the bring and share lunch we are going to tomorrow.

Morning all.
Richard III last night was really good. www.anticdisposition.co.uk/tour/about-the-tour.html
I was glad I took my winter coat, no rain but it was chilly. We ate in a village restaurant first and met another English couple, very nice, sitting at the table next to us. An English woman and a French man ran the restaurant, very lively and friendly. We had fish and chips which they do every Friday. I rarely eat it as I find batter and chips too much, but it was very good and I had a salad as well. The village was pretty and had a huge Abbey church. Saint Avit Senieur.
The play was on the raised grass bit along the side of the Abbey in above photo. Still can't get photos to go under the print.
