HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

Bloody hell Fidget. I've not been here for a while but very pleased to hear that the car did what it is supposed to, it absorbed the energy of the impact by breaking.

I thought I'd had an exciting time last week when I damaged an alloy wheel after being forced to swerve my car off the road when I met a cyclist, on a blind corner, who had decided that the way forward was to ride around the cars waiting in a queue for the lights in the middle of my side of the road. I was not impressed and I have rarely sworn at someone so loudly. He just rode off...

I actually did some gardening today, removed a Hydrangea so I can replace it with a prettier one. I was joined by one of our hedgepigs in the middle of the afternoon. Normally that would worry me but she was stuffing her face and I caught her quickly and checked her over and she seemed fine. Obviously just trying to pack on calories for winter.

My gaura are very popular with the bees and have survived well in places that don't get too wet in the winter.

My dearest Pat, I'd never even considered you deeply vital (and most importantly, not trying to eat brains) lot as zombies!

I've spent the day too traumatised by The Walking Dead to be witty and chatty on here!

Clari, I just used the NHS free one. It doesnt monitor your movements, it's all just verbal directions. It comes as podcasts too.

 Maybe they've slipped through a grating into a drain and been washed away .............

Not with a hooter like mine...

For those who asked, I've been eating more sensibly and after doing the Couch to 5k programme, I have been doing the Ronhill Run Every Day in October personal challenge. I've run 50 miles so far this month.

Just how much in the sticks are some of you with your broadband speeds...? I get 80Mbs!

I am still only dipping in an out but I must comment on the bravery and selflessness that enabled PunkDoc to go and do what he did. An inspiration.
