HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 11:03
Hi Yvie - i keep promising myself a trip to Sissinghurst "next year" - will really do it one day . A friend of mine recommends combining it with a trip to Marchants nursery, which she says is amazing. Maybe a forum trip for us southerners??

Had a mega lie in this morning - could hear the rain pitter-pattering, so knew I wasn't missing much . Have a couple of hours work to get out of the way, then might make some sort of attempt to get this house in order - who knows when the next rainy day might be.

BM - got your email, about to reply.

So sorry about your Mum Verd - can only really send ((hugs)). Grateful that my Dad is still fit and healthy - just quite lonely . Daughters can only do so much.

Hope shoulders improve (Dove and Bekkie), tummies settle down (Lizzie) and walks/drives/outings happen despite the rain (Lily and OL). Sure 8've missed someone - it'll come to me once I've pressed submit

HELLO FORKERS!
