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

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 😊

Thank you all very much ☺️☺️☺️  Personalsed cakes, balloons and flowers .....what more could a girl wish for .  Having a little sit down now, before my night on the town begins   Now that I’m 27 I need to conserve my energy wisely 😜

Thanks Fairy and Hosta.  Great πŸ‘πŸ» to have NT recommendations too - one of the advantages of an empty nest is we can just take off on a whim

Morning all 

Happy Trafalgar Day   Its also my birthday 🐣🐣🐣. I like Saturday birthdays very much indeed.  Quiet day today sheltering from Brian, with maybe a quick trip to town to get me a new suitcase for  πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί  (20 more sleeps LilyP πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€).  Then a meal out tonight, and a trip to Stourhead tomorrow to see if Brian has left any autumn colour  Birthday pressie from sisters and co is National Trust membership.  Never been a member before.

Glad you’re home Pdoc - take it easy.  And pleased that LilyP’s op went well - be gentle with yourself too.

Hosta, how rude (the second one)  You can only assume he/she is not very content with their life
