Hello Forkers ... June Edition

Pat; your nudge must have worked. His lordship is now cooking a full English breakfast! There seems to be enough for a least six (there's only two of us) so get your plates ready.

For anyone else whose meant to be on a diet; we'll start again on Monday!!

Rain seems to be lifting slightly. I dare not check the weather station.

Yum, Dove. I'm wishing Hubby would make his promised move into the kitchen. I'm getting hungry. Dark outside.

See original post

 Give him a nudge! Maybe he can take mine with him too; that mug of tea in bed never did materialise.

Morning All!

bacon is in the fridge, the kettle is on, there's a choice of 

1. rhubarb crumble

2. burnt cinder toffee (very sweet but oh so moreish)

3. raspberry and cream

homemade ice cream in the freezer 

and it's currently belting it down so no gardening just yet! If I can get the strawberries in from the garden I'll make some strawberry ice cream tomorrow. 

I need to decide whether this week's treat is cake or biscuits. Can't have both; meant to be trying to loose weight!

Surely its too late for this year? I always want to grow sunflowers; then forget til it's too late.

Ob; I didn't organise the event. Truth be told I rather gate crashed it with my pop up display! A corporate company organised it and out all the work in. 

You can't lead a horse to water I believe is the correct saying but I'm sure the locals would have something a little less poetic.

For all of you that supported me with my silly long hours at the last job. In my 3 weeks I'm now owed a days time off in lieu! I shall enjoy taking it and treating myself to a trip to a museum I've been meaning to visit for years.

Technology in garden centres

Posted: 08/06/2017 at 22:10

I'm no where near 50. Are young people allowed to join in?

As an aside Doghouse I'm going to a seminar on the ' use of technology to assist with aging'. I'm not sure whether it is a good intention to use technology to help people even though they might not want it or whether they are planning for when I eventually get old.

Well it's that time. All we can do now is put the kettle on.

Anyone for tea?

Afternoon all. I've done my bit; unfortunately though keen and easily excitable the people in the polling station did admit it had been quiet.

Quiet is the name of the game alas; at an "awareness day" for a local hospice today we had the grand sum of ZERO members of public attend.

I feel quite sorry for the organisers, the poor lass who made enough food for a small army and thry even insisted on doing that raffle that all eight of us had entered (31 prizes; most will be back in the next raffle).

Very breezy here. I'm feeling very tired and quite tempted to climb into bed.
