HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 22/10/2015 at 15:40

Clari - she's got a crush on one of the male carers - she goes all pink when he talks to her and she keeps trying to hold his hand and make him sit next to her and says 'he's my best friend' then giggles.  ................. she used to be so prim and proper   but at least she's happy.

Hello folks - back from visiting Ma - she's well and happy, chatting about all the friends she has (the staff) and her relatives who live next door who want another baby

The autumn colours seem particularly vivid this year, the field maples in the hedgerows in particular - absolutely wonderful

What to do with this lily

Lyn's OH could help you with that Steve, that's his forté

 

But what I would do is water it occasionally and just let it die down then put the pot in a quiet corner.  In the spring pot it up again in some fresh compost and cross your fingers (oh, and inspect for and squidge Lily beetles in the spring and summer)..  That's what we do and they flower every summer.

Don't think they're entirely responsible - there are usually other contributory factors

I love them - but don't give artichoke soup to a heavily pregnant woman - I did and she didn't last until the end of the  dinner party  - her hub had to rush her to the maternity hospital!!!

Guilty as charged!  I sent Wonky to school with cat flea bites - she was sent home with Chickenpox.

A few years later I thought her wan face and reluctance to go to school was new-school nerves ........ then her friend hammered on our door telling me that Wonky had fainted at the bus stop ........ she had Glandular Fever.

I was a wicked mother
