Hello Forkers.....It's October!

Oh Dacha, that made me smile   Although not sure I’d fancy sharing my boat with a bear .....did anyone read Life of Pi?  Great book (never saw the film, but the book was excellent).  Going to make my upcoming dose of Autumnwatch seem quite tame .....but I do love learning about the wildlife that is all around us here.  Delighted to see the hedgehog/ badger encounter last night, made me hopeful for hogs here one day after all - there are loads of untidy woodpiles just waiting for them to move in 🏑🏑🏑

Morning Peeps

Glad that you have got to the bottom of Possum’s worries Obxx - hopefully your upcoming mini break will give her some breathing space and help her keep on top of things.  Don’t care what anyone says about the feckless yoof of today......they seem to have more stresses to deal with than I ever remember

Watched Bakeoff and Autumnwatch πŸ‚πŸ last night - can’t remember last time I watched 2 hours of telly in one evening ......and enjoyed it all

Just watched it AuntyRach   Love the “watches” here ......weren’t those harvest mice cute . And I want to see a beecatcher 

Sorry to here about your knee verdict Dove.  Hope you can build the exercises into your daily routine somehow, its always easier when you can do something out of habit.

Fingers crossed for LG’s daughters audition 🎻 (i know, i know, thats not a cello, but its the best I can muster at this stage of the dayπŸ’€).....and hope Possum snaps out of it before your trip Obxx.

Had a great day at Stourhead yesterday ...will put some pics on the garden visits thread tomorrow, but here’s a taster

I’ve been worrying about Mrs Pdoc too.  I’d second Lizzie - talk to her.  When Mr C was ill I couldn’t even get to the SM without worrying - so maybe the promise of a treat when you are all sorted might be the best.  But everyone is different, so best to find out how she feels right now .....knowing that you are thinking about her might be the best tonic of all

Have a great day NannyB.  Enjoy the beach.  Quite a few of us well balanced souls on here βš–οΈβš–οΈβš–οΈ

Hope Fairy found a hill with the right sort of weather on it.

Waiting here to find out if Stourhead will be open today ......they are currently doing a pitch inspection

Had a lovely meal out last night - great food and a lovely cosy atmosphere.  The waitresses all looked the same ages as the chicklets and were rushed off their feet - they certainly earned their pennies with a smile 😊
