Morning all! Glad you are feeling more settled Mick. You'll be glad of the warmth before too long!

Lots of rain over night and more expected later. Off to court this morning and then we have an invasion of DC and DGC coming to meet Lottie who is here for the weekend - with her parents and big sister. sunshine

Good morning. Deluge here in NW Wales. Just tweeted bemusement that catholic school banned beards. Wasn't Jesus the original beardie? grin
My first day of voluntary NT gardening. Will give wet gardening a go, and then at least I will know what it's like.

Green wellies and barbours Jess? Have a great time. (My iPad had fun with wellies...just as well I checked it before hitting post!)

JessM Where are you doing your gardening?

Oops I forgot a "Good morning" from Cheshire. A mixed looking sky here some wet looking clouds but patches of sky visible. I had better take a raincoat and not leave it in the car today.

Morning - another typical lancashire day here. Rain, low grey sky, wet, wet and more wet. I shall need my waterproofs when I take the dogs out for another wet and muddy walk. The dogs of course will love it, and no doubt will swim in the reservoirs again.

Morning all, its hissing it down here in Yorkshire, still I don't start work until 12:30, so stay inside until it's time to go.

Dank,drear and dismal in Durham. A second cup of tea in bed day.

Penrhyn nellie. Had a fascinating walk around with head gardener who has recently taken over. Not had so much latin thrown at me since I did my o level. Not that big on latin plant names myself. grin

Good morning everyone. A bit chilly and dull, with a stiffish breeze, no rain at the moment, and it is supposed to get better during the day, so live in hope. Not a lot doing today, off to support a very small market, I think there may be some really nice cooking apples for sale there.

Good way to get a gardening 'fix' Jess.
Thunder and lightning made for a disturbed night here, hope I can keep awake in Art Hist Class wink.
The OG is playing Bridge ALL weekend so I'm planning anadventure! hmm

Thinking of collecting some gopher wood...

Good morning everyone. Looks as if busy days are planned - we had the most tremendous thunderstorm yesterday evening and it rumbled around till the early hours and the torrential rain continued all night. Looking a bit brighter this morning. Nothing much planned yet but if the bread is stale enough to make crumbs I think I shall mix the Ch*****s puddings. Enjoy your days - great your new abode is warm Mick.

berdie Fri 04-Oct-13 09:08:58

Do you have Lab's,? my two used to love mud and water.

annodomini Fri 04-Oct-13 09:10:22

Wet, grey, birches now turning yellow in my corner of Cheshire. A blood test this morning.

berdie Fri 04-Oct-13 09:41:00

Ahhhh, brightening up now, might just wash the car before I go to work, or not, decision's decision'

Good morning, a fine clear day here, so much overnight dew that everything is drenched. The neighbours are hacking away at the growth round the almond trees.

Charleygirl Fri 04-Oct-13 10:21:41

Dull, dreary and raining here in London. Glad that you are settling down in your new abode Mick.

berdie Fri 04-Oct-13 10:24:52

Send them round to me, they can hack away at this jungle I lovingly call a garden.wink

Morning all. I have just cleaned the bathroom so that indicates what the weather is like !

harrigran Fri 04-Oct-13 10:27:58

Good morning, it is a grey day. DH and I will go out for lunch, to pot with the housework.
I had my flu jab last Friday and this is the first day that my shoulder is not sore and painful. I think how pain free depends on nurse, it was fine last year.

annodomini Fri 04-Oct-13 10:34:45

Just got rid of an armful of blood and had my BP tested. And it has come down, so for the moment I am not at risk of medication!
