Hello Forkers January 2017 Edition

Morning all. Everytime I lay down in bed I coughed and coughed so went down and slept on sofa, which seemed to work better. Woke at 3am so went back to bed. Glad your throat is feeling less painful, Dove.

Hello all, we have arrived at our Norfolk cottage, first went to Tesco for supplies then Specsavers to see about repairing my favourite glasses that I trod on. It was only 10° in the cottage but us warming up now.

Interested to hear about those with the lurgy having tummy troubles, I have too and thought it was the medication. I had an awful night, coughing, got to sleep at 1.30 ish, only to wake coughing at 3 and we had to get up at 6am so as to have time to brief the house sitter and drive to the airport. I was dreading the journey, bad tummy day yesterday  , but was OK and didn't cough much on the plane. Coughed in Tesco instead!

England is a little warmer than Dordogne was! Still cold though.

I haven't seen it for years either. What's it's sell by date?  Maybe I'll see if the village chemist has it when we get to Norfolk.

My snowdrops are doing the same. Makes you feel full of hope  but they've been doing it since about a week ago.

Love my Rangemaster, needed an electrician too. Why is it going in the annex and not in the kitchen?

My bug did the that, LG, must be the same. But you've got children so difficult not to function.

Been doing some HW so Housesitter doesn't think I'm too lazy. Off tomorrow.

Horse chestnut trees

Thank you Tetley, but I realise what you mean. It's such a shame, such beautiful trees and the leaf miner really spoils the look of them. There is a lot of it here.

For Obelixx  https://www.jardinexpress.fr/  I've been pleased with them, plants are well packed. I usually get the smallest plugs in trays of about 35. Often 2 little plants in each plug so if you are careful you can get about 60 from a tray.

ideas for storing seeds

Posted: 05/01/2017 at 10:59

I store mine in a drawer in the utility room. But I've just seen an idea on the French Internet, someone stored them in a photo album that has clear pockets in it so you can see all the packets when you turn the pages.
