HELLO FORKERS!

My OH is not in disgrace, Strictly was recorded. I'm all tellied out! Strictly then The Apprentice. But I can't send KEF a DVD as we have a hard disk thingy. I've heard that the dances are now all on U Tube.

Strictly 2014

KEF

Have seen it now, fantastic dancing from all, but obvious that Caroline was the winner. Though for my taste Frankie and Kevin's Fred and Ginger show dance was my favourite. Darcey has had a soft spot for Simon since the start and Craig has never liked the romantic side of Frankie.

3 of my coldframes aren't movable, built of bricks with air pockets in them.

Good heavens, nothing showing yet in Dordogne. Still have some roses out though.

HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS.....

Have a lovely Christmas Runnybeak, whatever you are doing.

I may be a bit absent too, 4 grown-up children & spouses & 8 grandchildren coming for several days. There are mattresses on the floors and a cot in a bathroom!

KEF, I have yet to find out what OH has done about recording Strictly. I hope it's OK or there won't be any curry until June! I feel for you.

Garden Girl I - I have 2 coldframes with just sand, 1 cold frame with earth but this year it has had weed matting on it and the cold frame in the shade has polystyrene on the bottom. When I have tenderish plants in them I put polystyrene around the walls too.

Edd - there are other women in the village apart from me!

I've just come back from the village hall. They had story tellers and OH sang Christmassy French songs with the local choir. Earlier they'd been to sing in the Old People's Home. Then Father Christmas came and gave presents to the village children. When we came to this village in 1990 with our 4 children there were hardly any children and the village school had closed down. Now there are over 50.

Back from the party. Strictly seems to be recording OK. I want to watch it from the beginning, so not tonight. May go to bed. It's 10.30pm here.

Comfrey

My comfrey never grows over 2 feet, whether it's cut or not. I've never seen a comfrey of 6 feet, wonder what variety Edd is talking about.
