Hello Forkers January 2017 Edition

Posted: Yesterday at 18:08

Mr C has been raving about Italy's invisible cities Lily - maybe I should give it a go.

Another beautiful day here - very frosty and clear skies.  Went for a walk on the South Downs - exhilarating.  If winter was full of days like this I wouldn't mind it so much

Good on you for marching LG - its given lots of us a glimmer of hope.

I've never met  Hosta either, but somehow feel I'd know him if I saw him

just watching our birds at the feeders (getting my eye in for next weekend) ......a particularly aggressive robin is dive bombing the LTtits everytime they land on the peanuts.  Some manners are needed

Morning all.  Really hard frost here too- looks like its been snowing out there ....very pretty.

Got a surprise 80thbirthday party to go to today, down in the New Forest 

Off to scour the papers for Hosta lookalikes ......think I'll stick to the Times though .....the other one is banned from this iPad.  Will also help me avoid the front pages.  Think I'll be doing a lot of that for the next while.

Welcome home Hosta - glad you're safe.

Good to hear the new job is going well Wonky

If you go snowdrop hunting at Anglesey Abbey then I will try and join you (if it is a day I can take off work) - their winter garden has been on my wish list for ages 

Had a tense week, butChicklet has now made it through her exams, so all is calm once more.  She came home on the train last night - all her friends still have exams til next weekend, and she managed to get some extra shifts at work to top up the coffers.

Best get a move on ..see you later peeps

They used to be good in Windsor, but are getting worse and worse since they stopped being "the Garden Group". In fact the last couple of times I 've been in they look like they are about to fold

Lazy morning planned

Then hopping in a car to take an extremely anxious Chicklet back to Nottingham.  Her exams start tomorrow, and she is feeling .  Iwill stay overnight and then head straight to work tomorrow morning - its an hour closer than home.  Have lots of podcasts to keep me entertained on the journey.

See you Tuesday
