Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 13/06/2013 at 20:01

Verdun, not exactly volunteering but a World wide fellowship that's there to give help and comfort when folk are at the end of their tether.  They were there for me when I desparately needed some answers, which I didn't actually get but, with their help,  I gradually improved and, in turn, I was there for others. But I stopped going.  Realised today that it's something I still need to give me some purpose. I always used to say that it was my weekly 'fix'. Have found out this afternoon that there is now a meeting just off my High Street, during the day, so am pleased about that.  Did once think about the Samaritans, but was put off when I was told of some of the calls you could receive. 

I'd be good anywhere where chatting came into it.

Having time on my hands, I have been looking too. Well done Singy. It was really niggling me that I couldn't find anything. 

One happy Doris.

Evening all.  Glad head moniter started this off tonight.

Sat this morning reading an e-mail to which I replied and, in doing so, it made me feel good and I haven't done a lot, but have done something. Realised I need to put myself out to try to help out where there were people for me when I was at my lowest. Hope that all makes sense.

So, on my way to the shed to find a paintbrush and sandpaper, I dug and levelled the ground where I need to lay some turf, stood looking, yet again, at the lump of ground I have to do something with and think I now know what I'm going to do.  I then took my little 'trolley' which sits next to me and where I stick my bits and bobs and restored its colour to the oak it should be.  I keep looking at it as it looks so good.  This was made by my brother, at school, when he was 15, so is now 61 years old.  Shame that they don't do these things in schools any more. Apparently, they can't afford the wood.  I also got round to putting back on the kitchen wall all the 'spoon rests' my grandchildren have brought me from whereever they have been on holiday.  They keep asking me why they aren't on display. Never say you like something

Frank, I remember very well that when my Grandma was alive (Mum's Mum), everyone would converge at her home, one aunt would get on the piano, another with a beautiful voice would start off the singing and a good time was had by all. All the 'kids' took advantage of several bannisters, it being a 3 storey house.  When Grandma went, everything came to a halt.  Shame. 

My grandchildren are very fortunate that their greatgrandma, whose parents were missionaries in China, prior to the invasion by Japan in 1937, wrote everything down and this is now in my daughter's possession, together with loads of photos.  I think they are very lucky.

Alan, if you are on a laptop, pm Daniel and he will get it sorted out.  If you are using anything else, wouldn't have a clue.

Not boring at all James. You should be very proud.  Funny what turns up when you search your family tree.  I have been doing it off and on for a while now, but came unstuck with the Irish side of the family as all records were destroyed in a big fire years ago.  You will know what I am talking about as you referred me to a possible lead when on Beeb board.  What I did find fascinating was being able to look at the 1911 Census where I found my Grandfather's handwritten completed form.  Never knew much about my Dad's family so it was interesting.  The thing that struck me most was that my Granddad and Dad's handwriting was identical.  Both wrote beautifully. Was good to see.

Know this isn't a rant but it's good to chat.

James, if you're worried about your spelling, there is a spell check (abc) on top bar.  We are spoilt on this forum.

MORNING FORKERS

Morning anyone left. Diabolical weather and it's times like this I'm glad go be retired.  Well, I'm glad all the time but extra glad today. Had plans to do things indoors, not HW, but another awful night has left me feeling like a wet rag. Perhaps I will perk up later.

I'm a lonely little petunia in an onion patch. Staying up as long as I can as I don't feel like doing all that walking again.

Evening all.  Thought someone else would be Evening moniter tonight. 

Done nothing, been nowhere, spoke to no-one. Seriously, my choice and I'm perfectly happy.  Done a lot of reseach and paperwork for SIL as he's totally useless as is my daughter.  Keeps me happy.

Hope everyone else has had a good day.
