Good Morning Everyone,
Its another wet morning here in Brackley, with wind as well,
on old cmputer , getting someone to transfer my documents onto new one this morning.

Can't tell what the morning is doing yet. At least the wind has dropped. I am remembering some lovely colourful primulas (not wild primroses!) that I saw yesterday on my way to the pharmacy, and smiling at their cheerfulness.

It's still dark here in N. Leicestershire but the rain we had overnight appears to have stopped.

I'm off to stock up before DD2 and her two arrive for the week. They are having a new kitchen floor fitted so she has opted out. It will be lovely but I will be very tired when they leave!

Wet and windy and horrible here. But at least nothing too extreme. No snow drops yet, but the aconites are coming into flower under the hedge. Have a lovely day everyone and I hope your computer transfer goes well Mick.

it wil be nteresting to see if we get any reall Winter weather like blankets of snow as its to mild , the plants etc must be confused.
Hope non of the Oxford based members are not trapped by floods or those in the West Country, and Dorset areas.

Forecast for us is colder weather today and for a while. Time will tell. Don't worry about the plants, mick, they're used to our changeable weather.

A pale violet dawn this morning. Very still.

What a lovely description by ffinnochio. That described East Sussex also. It has been very windy but getting better. Not raining but still very wet outside.
Finished husbands jumper last night thankfully. Always have to knit largest size for him so they get very heavy whilst knitting. Starting on some sewing today.

Good morning everyone - still very mild. We have a few buds coming on the primula and this week I saw the first pots of them in the market.

Morning all, dry and windy here.
They've just mentioned the possibility of the white stuff in the north next week sad

Good morning everyone. Dull this morning, looks like rain.
Its my 68th birthday today, nice pair of earrings from Mr T. Off to eye clinic this morning for the full works, drops, pressures, vision test. Fingers crossed pressure will be ok.
Going to choir practice this afternoon, but wont be able to read the music because the drops make everything blurry. But nevertheless I will enjoy meeting up with friends after the Christmas break.
Hope you all have a nice day.

Good morning everyone. Happy Birthday Thistledoo Hope your appointment goes well and your day just gets better and better.

DH has physio this morning, his legs are very wasted due to Myopathy so I am hoping he will benefit from this. Then oh joy of joys we have a trip to Waitrose with mil lined up afterwards. Still the freezers are rather deep in there (scratches chin thoughtfully) I for one wouldn't report her missing (evil grin). Only half joking before anyone reports me grin

annodomini Thu 09-Jan-14 09:17:48

I'm seven miles away from you, Lona and it's not shining here yet! sunshine (ironic)

Good morning all and happy birthday Thistle

Thistledoo Happy Birthday, hope you enjoy it. I am near Oxford, but we don't have floods in my village thank goodness, but lots of water all around, so you have to be careful where you drive.When will all the rain end? Saying that, there is blue sky just now and white fluffy clouds, so ok for now.Drove over to Wantage the other day and it's like driving through the Lake District!

Did anyone else get woken up in the night by a clap of thunder followed by a hailstorm of epic proportions? I thought the world was coming to an end confused.

kittylester Thu 09-Jan-14 14:14:23

Didn't hear thunder Tegan but we certainly got the hail.

I think the world survived. grin
