Bit early for me--as it's barely noon here. Love the outfits, ladies---not so much the lack of one!

Lo, the sun appears, however briefly--so outside it is. Have one for me, and congrats, Sue. Onwards and upwards!!!

Not much of a party here--however, I'm having some Desarrono in my coffee-at 3 in the afternoon! Will be celebrating with my niece this weekend--think I'll make some hot cross buns.Goodnight sleepy forkers--thanks again for the good wishes.I will be up for awhile yet--watching the rain!

Hi Forkers--sounds like you all have been busy bees! Thank you for the birthday wishes--don't really have plans, except to crack on with the knitting and hope for some sun. Not actually raining at the mo, so will go out and chop some wood for the fire.

Have 2 hyacinths blooming in a pot on the table--house smells divine. So glad of all the bulbs I potted up in the fall!

Horseradish-very easy to grow, but can be invasive--get a root, plonk in soil, water when you think of it, dig and grate. Wear goggles!

Love horseradish--the best is that you grow yourself. The hottest is when you withdraw watering. As a child, I was tortured --my stepfather made us grate it fresh--had to wear goggles! But then he bought a blender--thank Dog!

Thanks for the kind thoughts, Dean.

New Pope? Gets my vote.

G'day, forkers--grey and gloomy again here today and tomorrow;hopefully better by the weekend for my niece's last visit before heading back to Oz. I will miss her.

I am on WW too-down a bit this week--surprising, as I indulged in a burger and chips in town last week. But I ran around shopping so much that day that I guess I burned it off.

The catkin buds are swelling already on my birthday bonsai willow--would be great if they were out on the day--but that's tomorrow, so not likely.

Beginning another sweater today--hope I'll do a better job this time, since I've had the practise.

My 89 year old friend has had some complications from her operation--a Whipple, for those of you in the know---fingers crossed. She is still in Intensive Care.

 You can see the graft. Can't wait for the catkins on my bonsai willow!

I think that smiley means you are concussed or having a stroke.

The town was Sidney--about 30 k north of Victoria. The pod was about 6 orcas--one or two bulls, 2 cows and a baby! They passed us from the front, blowing and slapping their tails. Lovely--plus a sunny day!

Took the early boat [6am!] and so had a good few hours. Usually rushed for time. I also bought myself a genuine Borsolino hat--25$ in the thrift store, but it was actually my size--so it was fate. Love hats! Justified a lot of purchases as early birthday pressies.

Just found out I'll be having lots of company in the next little while--my niece for a couple of days next weekend, before she moves back to Oz, then my son and grandson for a week. Good thing I stocked up on food!

Hi, all--recovered from my ferry trip to town---saw a pod of whales on the way!

Flo, consider if you get a king sized bed you have to buy the bedding--and sheets cost a bomb!

Indulced myself at the GC--bought a bonsai willow[not cheap, but it's my birthday next week, so there] also a clematis armandii in full bloom--3rd time lucky, I hope . Lost the previous 2 one I weed whacked, the other didn't survive when I moved it. There may have been a few other purchases as well, plus a major bulk grocery shop. Was taking my friend to the hospital for a minor procedure, so the trip was free! [the fare, that is].

Yesterday I planted and repackaged food--last of the sun for awhile, although I did put up the patio umbrella. And we sprang ahead last night--it's earlier every year!

Happy Mother's Forkers! Here in NA it's not until May.
