Hello Forkers December

Morning to Forker Friends - old & new.


Frosty here last night, but forecast says warm stuff to come.


Out tonight with the group of friends I go away with for garden visiting weekends - should be fun.  But another day at the saltmine to get thru first


Love those kittens Obxx

I'm awake 


Advent calendar hung up, and its pockets filled with treats ๐Ÿญ


Littlest Chicklet passed her driving test yesterday   She was so excited, and I managed to BAFTA my way to being delighted for her


Out with old friends last night - had a lovely meal in a pub just outside Hampton Court Palace gates - it looked wonderful when we came out to go home - all lit up and glittering in the frost.  The sticky toffee pudding inside me kept me warm on the journey home

How could Improve this ugly part of my back garden?

I like it . All the different levels give it some interest - you just need to soften the edges with some decent size shrubs and get planting

Love the way the remaining leaves pick up the colour of the door and gate - great photo.


Oaks are still holding on here, but apart from that the show is over for another year.  But what a fantastic autumn it has been - best I can remember for a long time.

Sounds like a great trip Tbird - enjoy the V&A .....let me know if Kylie's hotpants are still there


I went to Westminster Abbey after the Kate/William nuptials ......it was free entry for a week, and I was working across theroad from there at the time .....remember the field maples lining the aisles.  Think Prince Charles now has them in his garden๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ


Should be another sparkler of a day today - yesterday was just gorgeousโ˜€๏ธโ„๏ธโ˜€๏ธโ„๏ธโ˜€๏ธ  Love a sharp, cold and sunny day, so long as I am bundled up in a BIG scarf

Ooooo such a lot has been going on


Cosmos looks a real cutie.  Great view from the pier, and wonderful French marketplace.  Hope DD's outing went well, and glad that the fresh air/ hacking did Pdoc some good.  Great to hear from Liri and her paintbrush


Spent the day helping OH point the new paving slabs, then off for a walk, kicking autumn leaves as we went.  Then a couple of hours driving with littlest Chicklet ....test coming up this week.  Obviously want her to pass, but not looking forward to the worrying starting all over again.  Best thing about Chicklet being away at Uni is I don't have to worry about her on the roads
