Good morning to you all, it is bright with a chill in the air, but once again promises to be a nice day. Must have been a good weekend for Beer Festivals Mick, there was one at Amberley Museum yesterday, and although we did not stay long, it looked like being very busy. We were not there for the beer, just popping in to see a friend in the print shop, we had not seen him for some time, and were lunching near the Museum with friends, so took the opportunity to say hello to David. We are back there again today, working, looking forward to that, enjoy meeting the visitors and chatting. Enjoy your days everyone.

Good morning all! its very dull and grey in Cheshire. The forecast suggests cloudy but a low chance of rain.

Good Morning all.,
I spotted the word autumninal; or as the weather forcaster says; autumnal, (on telly).This word seems to drive my husband mad! Everytime it is mentioned lately, his face goes purple with rage!!!!!!
He says it is another made-up words, modern-speak and that sort of thing infuriates him.Sorry, 12Michael; just simply had to mention this, personally, I dont see what hubby gets so wound up about, and I tend to slope off into the kitchen for a surruptitious snigger.!
Anyway, having said all that, have a great

Good morning everyone! Bit dull in north Leicestershire this morning. Off for walk in our local country park this morning which will be weird without a dog sad.

DH is marinading and barbecuing a chicken today but I doubt it will be warm enough to eat outside.

Hope everyone has a lovely day sunshine

Good morning from East Sussex on the 1st September. Where has the year gone. Off to Germany on Tuesday for a rail holiday. Blackberry, from the hedges, and apple crumble today. Autumn mists and mellow fruitfulness.

Ditto Nellie but would add chilly. Have just got back from a local car boot sale. I treated myself to a lovely Allervale mottoware jug kitty. The motto suggests it was made during WW1. It has a few nibbles but who cares I like it.

Mick I live about six miles from Crewe and avoid it whenever possible it's a dire place imo.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Sook -what's the motto? Last time I went to an antique's fair I only saw a couple of pieces with just the place names on so I haven't bought any for ages. I'm currently trying to find enough Denby, Poole and other 50/60/70 type dinner plates to hang on a brick wall in our dining room. Cliched or what? grin

Nice to see you again Glass, hope you are well?
Sunny, but not quite so warm today, saying that, it`s warmer outside than in, here in Boston.

My little lad is 42 today. Where did the time go?

The day started well. We set off to join my brother and his wife in a visit to mum at her nursing home and some silly woman drove into the back of us at traffic lights. She was going at quite a speed because the bang was so loud lots of people ran out of their houses. No one was hurt but her car is a write off. Thank goodness for our 4x4 which has escaped with damage to the rear bumper but nothing worse.

I now have a sore neck so I hope it's not whiplash developing because we're due to go on holiday in two weeks and I haven't had a break for six years!!

I don't feel any sympathy for the woman at all. She seemed to think that we would just exchange details and drive off. DH pointed out that her car wasn't fit to drive and in any case we were phoning the police as the road was blocked. The police were very good, found out her insurance details for us and let us go on our way. They said she'd get a fixed penalty fine for driving without due care and attention.

Maybe she should have just had her eyes on the road?? angry
