East Anglia Forkers Outings

Posted: 16/08/2014 at 12:36

France - Dordogne area - Busy Lizzie's area (although I think she may be a bit further north than us). Am thinking of PM'ing her as I could do with some inside info as to whether / where I can buy cheap gin over there. Planning on making a few bottles of raspberry gin, blackberry gin, sloe gin .... HIc! You get the picture?

Booze always used to be cheaper in France but I'm not sure that's still the case

Sounds like a great idea Snoodle. It would be really good to be able to set aside the time in advance. 

When does the yellow book come out?

Sorry I can't make P'borough - I shall be packing the caravan ready for off!

Hi Punkdoc

We had a great day out on Thurs in OH's little MX5 - roof down, shades on, unglamorous hat on - the works.

He prefers taking me out in it because he knows I'm unlikely to ask to go to a GC because there is no space for plants more than 6" high. We did once stop to get some 6' garden canes - so we had the roof down. 15 mins before home the heavens opened - got absolutely soaked - we were roaring with laughter - everyone else on the road clearly thought we were barking

Well look at that - fire up the computer after trip to SM to see what you lot have been up to while I enjoy my coffee - and it reposts one of my messages from last night - why oh why does it keep doing that to me 

Sorry everyone if you get some more completely out of context duplications from me - gremlins at work again obviously 

Nice day here - possibly the last one before it all gets quite chilly so off for a couple of hrs in the garden while the sun is shining

Thanks for the welcomes everyone - it is a teensy bit mad Panda isn't it? - but in the nicest of ways 

Off to make raspberry mess now (same as Eton but with rasps instead of strawbs - much nicer I think)

Panda - hydrangea panticulata - (or however you spell it ) is the pointy one. I planted 'limelight' a couple of mths ago and it is doing really well - lights up a shady border.

Probably would Bekkie - made similar stuff with cornflakes when we were kids

Hello everybody

I post fairly regularly on other the other GW forums but, so far, have not joined in with this one. I've been reading it regularly & it seems like fun and, to be honest, all this talk of CAKE has finally drawn me out of the woodwork 

Dove - that cake looks absolutely scrummy & I've copied the recipe ready to try - lucky friend with all the treats you've cooked up - any left overs send them this way! 

Lily Pilly - I've never had to cater for anyone with those allergies but if you Google 'eggless and dairy free cake recipes' there are quite a few to look at including a choccie one (I think).

Best wishes to all those feeling poorly (a lot of it about at the moment)

Hi Bekkie

If you Google them - you'll soon see that you won't lose them.... 

They're attached to a back pack to house the battery etc so you look like you're going hiking when you're just nipping out to dead head the roses 

A bit overkill for my garden (and, I suspect, for Wakou's too ) - I'd rather have a chain saw  - timberrrrrrr....
