Hello Forkers ... September edition

Posted: Yesterday at 09:32

Morning all

We think we have found someone to house-sit for us when we go away in November - going to call them for a chat in a bit.  Then we are heading up to London for another "hidden" walk ......Borough Market area.  And tomorrow, I will garden 

Hope Mr Pat is home safe very soon.  Lizzie - looks like the garden might have to wait til next week after all.

Hope you enjoyed the Spring Exhibition ðŸŒ±ðŸŒ·

Dad visiting done last night - the nursing home he is in is lovely, and the staff all friendly and attentive, so thats good. Think he'll be there a couple of weeks before he is ready to go home. He's pretty uncomfortable, but he's got a lot of healing to do .  He's much better once he gets talking and thinking about something else.

Discovery of the old path sounds exciting Liri you know much about the history of the place?

Hope Lizzie and Dacha are now safely home 🏡

Morning - glad you enjoyed Harrogate Liri a nice gladioli (or should that be gladiolus) here 

I spent two years at school in America (when I was 11 and 12).  I learned nothing but American history and geography.  But I did come home rather good at Math (sic).

Taking littlest chicklet up to Birmingham today.  All the bags are packed.  Concentrating very very hard on what a wonderful time she is going to have, and how proud we are.  â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
