HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 27/11/2014 at 09:42

It has been decided that I am having an official birthday this year, when everyone is feeling 100%

A box of bulbs (late order) came yesterday, so I must try and get those in, but its tipping it down here.

Edd, you're incorrigible.

Punkdoc, if you have another greenhouse, it will liberate the dining room for dining and not raising cannas. The added advantage is she will always know where to find you. You could always have a phone extension in it, like my mum.

Sweet williams are biennial. Young plants planted out now will flower next year.

If they are all crowded in a small pot they will not flower properly. They should really have been planted out in September.

Mums just rung, 

OH told her he thought my Birthday was tomorrow......

Hospital reckon dad is eating and walking around the ward. He can come home tomorrow for a couple of hours. Except when my sister said my mum has Norovirus, they backtracked on that one quickly. Funny thing is, when family is there, dad is in bed, refusing food, and dried up sandwiches are on the side...

I'll believe it when I see it with my own eyes.

Well he's been down and had lunch,then gone back upstairs to work. I'm going to stick a candle in a cake shortly and see if he notices that.

Well he hasn't remembered yet.

I've lined the cards up on the mantelpiece to see if he notices.

It's my birthday

Nice brekky, but I'm not really doing much food yet. Still trying to rehydrate. As a pre xmas diet, norovirus is pretty effective. 3pounds lost this week. Probably all fluid. With all the antics over the last week, I think OH has forgotten it's my birthday.

I usually have a pretty good immunity system, and it appears to have cleared in 24 hours, but mum started at 1am yesterday and is still ill.  She is still on liquids only. I have to say I couldn't get comfortable in any position yesterday. Imodium, Buccastem , and paracetamol seemed to have sorted most symptoms.

I might have been premature starting the boil washing. Looks like OH is starting with it.

Outbreak of Norovirus at Kings Mill Hospital, Mansfield.

Mum has it, I have it,and OH has just started going nauseous and complaining that his stomach feels like its been kicked by a donkey, so I guess he's about to start with it. Pretty inevitable I suppose. We should probably put a big red cross on the front door to keep away marauding cold callers.

Fantasy garden

Other papers have fantasy football, or fantasy portfolio. As we can't do much in our real gardens at this time of year, let us have a fantasy garden
