Hello Forkers - May Edition

Posted: 11/05/2017 at 23:14


I am back, rather earlier than planned, due to some exploding glass and some lacerations to my posterior.

Very hot out there, 30C, ideal for a bit of sun bathing [ Apocalypse Now style ] , but no fun in the trauma room with no air conditioning.

Now need to earn some brownie points with OH, who quite reasonably is not happy, although does seem quite pleased to see me.

Hope you are all well.

This is Moira here, I am Nigel's OH.

I thought he would probably want you to know that a week ago he decided, that he just had to go back to Syria.

I find his actions totally irresponsible, but he says he is still trying to find "himself".

He has promised me that he will only be there two weeks, to cover some leave of one of his American colleagues. I will believe that when I see him.

Hi all.

Left Aldershot early and am home.

Afraid I am utterly demoralised by our discussions, as I knew I would be, but did not feel I could refuse to go.

I hope you will understand if I am an infrequent visitor for a few days, but I am trying to get my head round things and work out what I need to do.

Hi all.

We are loving Line of Duty.

Just popped in to say, that I will not be popping in!

Am off to Aldershot for a couple of days, to talk about ghastly things and give a lecture about Halabja, something I had hoped I would never need to do again.

The tight b#####s are not even paying for a hotel, I am staying in the barracks.

Dahlias from seeds - next step?

Don't plant out until after the last frosts.

You planted them in the future, that's clever

I have always known Goose grass as sticky bud.

What's up with my strawberries?

I think fairy is right.

Don't worry about complicated things until you have got them in the sun, in good soil and have removed the tatty leaves.

Sadly, I think they are impossible to eradicate, they will probably be the last living plant on earth

Hi all.

Cold but sunny.

Will try to keep busy in the garden, so that I don't think about other things.
