Hello Forkers ... July Edition

Posted: 11/07/2017 at 13:12

Afternoon all,  Raining and grey here today.  Don't mind because I'm too tired to do much after the Kew trip yesterday.  Had a lovely time and I will also post photos when I can.  Don't know how you are functioning after that bus trip Liri, think I'd still be in bed.  No delays on the return trains yesterday so I made good time and was home for around 9.30.

Woke up this morning to a scene from Amityville.  For some reason we have had an invasion of flies in the lounge.  Hundreds of them.  We can find anything wrong and can't find where they are getting in.  Have checked loft, cellar and guttering and can't find anything that has died, no smell either, but something is attracting them.  Have sent hubby out to track down some stuff to deal with the problem.  Hate flies, yuk.

Glad Bl and DD had successful events and hope business continues to be good.  Don't forget to relax occasionally DD.

Glad the boot is off Dove, doesn't it feel good.

Hope Pat and Clari feel better soon.

I know I will have forgotten loads of stuff so sorry to those I've missed out.

You did well Liri getting home at that time.  It was 9.30 by the time I got home and you had so much further to go.

Hi folks, everyone very chatty as usual.  Shattered today after trip to Kew so taking things easy.  Woke up this morning to an invasion of flies in the lounge bay window.  Can't find where they are coming from.  Have checked the cellar but nothing appears to have died there and no flies.  Also checked the loft and no probs there.  Just can't understand it.  Hate flies too.

Hi folks, sorry for being late on parade, bit of a problem this morning and I was just too tired to post last night.  Had a lovely time meeting you all and look forward to another trip.  According to my fitbit we walked 16,000 steps yesterday.  No wonder we were all tired.  Can't wait to see the piccies. I'll take a look at mine when I get the chance and try and post some once the gremlins have moved on.

By the way I stopped at that lovely cafe at Kew and ate quiche and salad followed by a wonderful piece of spiced apple tart and cream sat for about an hour in the sunshine before going back to Euston for the 7.30 train it was a perfect end to a lovely day.

Not bringing sandwiches either, to be honest the less I have to carry around the better.  Tea and cake sounds just the ticket, talking of which I've just printed my train tickets off and checked the tube route.

Just took ages to read back. Re names. I once worked for a man whose name was P. E. A. Green. Firstborn once taught 2 children one called Lasagne and the other called Ravioli and I'm not joking. 

Firstborn spent her maternity leave working on our family tree. Our ancestors mainly worked on the canals and lived in community housing. She got worried at one point when her hubbies relati lived in the same house As ours.  We also had a bigamist. 

Sorry posts are brief but I'm on mobile.
