HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

Posted: Today at 20:08

Hi All,

No chance to read back, busy day (as ever). Charlie & I spent the evening playing Monopoly as electrician had to cut all power to sockets to fix something - no TV - heaven (apart from the fact I got thrashed by an 8 year old), think I may 'pull the plug' more often. 

Went to visit a friend this afternoon who has been very poorly, we were very worried actually but hadn't dared to say, anyway, turns out all is well, doctors have found the cause of the pain and have treatment in place. Really good news. Wonderful woman and the thought of it being some thing serious was very upsetting. So pleased for her and all the family/ Thought nice to share good news. 

Btw, Lizzie, I have now invited her to your Strawberry Tea, do I need to book the extra place? 

Gerbils are cute Dove, missing having a pet.

Good morning, nice day here hoping to get stuck into the gardening today but for now it's a bit chilly, 2 degrees, bit of tidying up in side first I think. 

Took Charlie to school this morning and all the kids have be made to go onto the tennis courts and play as there has been a burglary overnight. We are all shocked, it's the tiniest little village school, I wouldn't have thought worth the effort. We did just have Interactive Whiteboards fitted after Christmas so I am wondering if that is what was taken. Horrible. 

Hope you all have a good day, snow in April, let's hope it means you all get a marvellous summer.

Good morning,

Dove, WW & the rest of the family my thoughts are with you. Inevitable and expected as it may have been it is still a very emotional time. x

Hi Dove, glad to hear you Ma is comfortable, best you can hope for. You sound extremely brave about the whole thing yet I am sure it must be a very emotional time for you all. Hugs to both you and WW.

Lizzie, I sent you a PM, a nice one, I promise.

Evening all.

Busy, busy day and ended up with a call to collect Charlie from Athletics as he had had an accident. Fifteen minutes of mild panic until I got there but no permanent damage, thankfully. Think the blood scared him at first but he is already showing off his war wounds.

Having an evening of cuddles now.

Hope you are all well.

Thank you so much, still in plenty of time, don't need them all in until end of June. Much appreciated, will be so good for all the children to see them.

Hosta, when you've worked out how to move yours (safely and successfully) let me know because I have the same problem, although my rock is about 25 metres in the wrong place.
