Afternoon Forkers, hope I am on the right thread!

Sun shining here at the moment but very cold and windy so I am staying indoors!

If you don't come in here for a day or two it takes ages to catch up on all the news so......I do hope all those who haven't been well are fully recovered, some less sad and everyone really geared up for the big event that is surely on the horizon some time soon......SPRING .

I have just had home-made leek (mine) and potato soup for lunch and although I am saying it myself it was delicious - pat on the back for me

Yes, I watched MB and found it tragic about her son. She is really a wonderful person I thought too - so sweet and encouraging to all her pupils. I doubt if she ever says an unkind word ever in any circumstance. Would you agree with that?

Need to get back to my knitting on which I have to really concentrate not being very good.

Take care one and all and keep warm and healthy

Posted: 03/02/2013 at 14:31 last. Now I cannot think of much to say as I walked to B&Q and Homebase and home again this morning - two and a half hours in all plus some plants and seeds on the return journey of course .

Don't be sad, Geoff. I am sure he is on his way 

What's the weather like in your area?

'Morning Forkers, pretty cold here so far but hopefully it will warm up later.

I am very impressed with all of your activities in the garden and various sheds and GHs - welll done all of you. I do every now and then do what you are doing but am still trying to get my newish home sorted by clearing out what we really don't need etc. having moved from a bigger house and doing alterations etc - seems to be taking forever. Never mind....

Enjoy your day whatever you are up to. At the moment my plan is to start on the front bedroom bit by bit - I sometimes time myself so I don't get too carried away and then it is in the lap of the gods!

Posted: 02/02/2013 at 19:05 I am at last. According to Geoff I was on the wrong thread! I went on the one about the GW Seed Club because I had received an email about it and thought that was the correct thread to communicate on - sorry folks.

I also asked Geoff if he had any luck with his house sale on the same thread as I had seen him name further up.

As you can see I get a bit confused with where I should be so 'bear with' please.
