Hello Everybody - long time no see.
Nearly 3 weeks without t'interweb at home ( I just love BT Openreach ) then hols (very little internet) for a couple of weeks then lots to do etc etc.
But I missed all of you Have popped in when cafe's and other hotspots have allowed so I know DD is settling into her new house / life & I think WW has got a new job and Obelixx is moving. So many congratulations to all of you.
I saw BL's sad news (our beloved pets leave such a void) so huge hugs for you.
I also see that Runny's made a few posts - hooray - we really missed you. All that Poldark talk was clearly too much to resist
As for the rest of you - you all seem to have been busy and chatty as per. Have only been able to skim read back (6 weeks is an eternity on Forkers ) so apologies for all the other major events I've missed.
We had a lovely couple of weeks in the Lakes, Northumberland and Durham. The weather was exceptionally good for the time of year - even had to do some washing because we'd taken lots of jumpers etc but really only needed T-shirts most of the time. Did lots of heritage and history stuff so really enjoyed it.
Everything has suddenly gone autumnal since we got home - everyone's planting bulbs and I have a cupboard full of jam and chutneys. Had to light the log burner on Sunday.
But I quite like this time of year - a feeling of stocking up, building the nest, getting ready to snuggle down for the winter and good excuses to start eating rich casseroles and proper puds.
Time for a G&T now and then catching up with Victoria on the TV.
