Hello Forkers ... September edition

Posted: 13/09/2017 at 10:18

Good morning all 

Glad to hear all is going according to plan Chicky ((hugs)).

Hope you've all been able to hang onto your hats ... I've a feeling our bean canes may be deconstructed without us lifting a finger   but at least it's dry 

OH is getting his bike out and heading to the shops for a few necessities ... think the wind will blow him home quickly ... W'rose is due west of us.

I've spoken to Wonky who thanks you all for your kind wishes.  She slept well once she got to sleep and is, at the moment, still in her purple dressing gown.  She has had two coffees and has progressed to a mug of Darjeeling tea.  She's bored but being good and not doing anything.

Same here Lyn  ... the laburnum that hung over the fence onto our driveway ... we children knew not to touch the seeds ... when I was a mum and we moved to a smallholding with a laburnum in the garden my children already knew not to touch the seeds ....... or to eat anything without checking with me first and as you say, to wash their hands when they came in to eat.

Same here Lyn ... all the dogs in my life lived to ripe old ages or were  euthanised because of accident/injury .  I seem to have grown most of those plants in my life and my dogs lived in close proximity to them ..... it's a miracle any of them survived.

Then make sure he knows that TOIL means just that ... Time Off Work !!!

Not time spent sitting on the phone/pc dealing with stuff for work   That way leads to being off work with illness 

Tell him you'll send Dove round
