HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

Hello folks - back from the GP - she's not too worried about my cholesterol, given my otherwise good health and the family longevity!!!   Just got to try to get it down a bit over the next six months by 'being sensible' ........ I told her we have a holiday booked (didn't tell her it was Cornwall tho'  ... we'd better eat mackerel as well as clotted cream).  Also had one of those lady's ***** tests with the nurse - apparently that'll be my last one - not sure whether to be pleased or insulted

Now I'll have a big mug of coffee and see what you lot have been up to, then I'll set off to visit Ma.

Pat - your view is gorgeous!

I don't recognise it either - even if the leaves were green it's not familiar - think it's probably from warmer climes than Norfolk, whatever colour it naturally is.

Perhaps someone who's travelled more widely than I have may recognise it

I have to say, I had good germination from the free cosmos.   It's just the tomatoes that have been so very poor

Thanks for your kind wishes - she's comfortable thank goodness, just on a gentle downhill slope.

Good morning all

Hope Happy Marian is ok.  It's not like her not to post.

It's chilly here but it looks as if it's going to be a bright day.  I won't be around much as I have an early GP appointment and then later I'll travel south to visit Ma.
