Good Morning Everyone,

Morning Mick, morning all!

It poured most of the night in north Leicestershire and is raining still. Sainsbury's this morning and brew with a gn friend this pm.

Good morning Mick and all to come.
The lovely sound of steady gentle rain at last! I can almost hear the relief as the gardens drink it up and I know I am let off watering my neighbour’s pots!
An indoor day I think, but when the rain stops (as it is forecast to do) I might be able to repair some of the drought devastation in the garden!
Wishing you all a pleasant day ☔️

Off to Hunstanton with other members of the bowls club to play on the green on the cliff tops over looking the sea, so hoping the weather perks up for us.
It is grey and miserable looking at the moment here in Letchworth and on checking the forcast for Hunstanton it's raining till lunchtime. Have a great day everyone what ever you are doing smile

Good morning Michael, kitty and all GNs. Looks like we've had quite a bit of rain overnight. Very welcome. Not sure what we have planned for today. Food shopping and ironing probably. Deep joy! Have a good day folks.

Good morning Mick and all who posted before me.
Dull here in Glasgow, but heavy rain forecast for later.
Well, no adverse reaction after my hospital trip yesterday. ☺️
I do feel under the weather, but that was to be expected.
We have DGD today and off to buy paint for the new utility room, which is nearing completion. 😁

Good morning, overcast this morning but it is dry.
Dental check-up this morning but will have to come straight home as DS is having parcel delivered.

Morning Mick, Morning All. Looks like we had overnight rain, dry now in our corner of Somerset. Cleaning and admin catchup today plus some ironing. Hmm, doesn’t sound fun but none of it will take long and it will be good to get it done. Hope Thursday is kind to everyone.

Good morning everyone

Welcome rain here too overnight in the Black Country, but now the sun is peeping out!

Today I was meeting a friend for lunch, but she has had to cancel, so it looks like a housework and ironing day shock

Pleased you are ok after your hospital visit Marydoll hope you feel fully recovered soon flowers

Morning All

The clouds were so heavy this morning we needed the lights on in the ‘garden’ room (I still have problems with garden room - it’s an old conservatory with a solid roof put on). Eventually we’re getting a little light rain but it’s brightening now so travelsafar, you may find it’s dry by the time you get to Hunstanton.

An at home day planned for today to catch up on housework and garden when it dries up this afternoon.

Morning all!

Just back from our usual weekly supermarket shop - earlier than normal today. It's very overcast and humid here on the south coast.

We await news from our much-loved eldest DGD who will get her GCSE results today. Hope she has done well. It is quite hard for her as she has two very academic parents and despite their reassurances, feels she has to do so to "not let them down".

Glad your treatment went well Marydoll and hope you feel a bit better today Grey.

Hope the day is a good one for us all. sunshine

Morning all, dull here in NE Fife but may clear later. Glad to hear you didn't have any adverse reaction yesterday at hospital Marydoll but yes it takes a lot out of you so just go easy today with your DGD. Coffee with my cousin this morning and food shopping in afternoon when hopefully we shall see some sun. Hope everyone has a good day.

gillybob Thu 23-Aug-18 07:48:44

Good morning from the NE coast. It’s not a bad start to the day (was very warm overnight again) but rain forecast for later this afternoon. Never mind I’m off to work again anyway, thank goodness it’s Fiday Eve.

Glad all went well for you MaryDoll smile

Hope you have a good Thursday everyone.

Morning all.
It's sunny and dry in York now after a night of lovely heavy rain.
Off to see Calendar Girls in Leeds today with my WI. Somebody suggested wearing black dresses and a sunflower but thankfully the idea was dropped.
I know what you mean about re-naming rooms nfk We had an extension built about 25 years ago which is still refered to, by me, as 'the new room' . We are about to have a utility/ kitchen extension built. I'm going to call it 'the back kitchen'.

Have a good day everyone.

Panache Thu 23-Aug-18 08:04:06

Good Morning to all you earlybirds.

We are again both well blessed in the verdant greeness all around plus a little too much of the wet stuff,today though starts bright and cheerful............bodes well for the weekend........time will tell.

I can imagine you to be feeling very much "under the weather" Marydoll these draining days take it out of the system,though it looks as the work continues in your abode...........and good luck with that.

The results were out here in wales last week it seems and there were the usual group of smiling faces........and a few glum ones!

A day of rest to look forward to (NOT)........whilst wishing you all a nice and perky one.

NanKate Thu 23-Aug-18 08:06:58

Morning Mick and All.

A lovely fine misty rain in South Bucks, so needed.

So pleased for you Mary that all went well and that you are safely back home. I hope things are better for you too Greyduster. It’s a pity NannyJan you don’t live near me because you could have joined us for a delicious fish and chip lunch which I am having with a friend today. I come from the Midlands so we would have lots to talk about.

Auntieflo Thu 23-Aug-18 08:07:56

Morning Mick and all and Anniebach. Another grey start here as well, but hoping it will brighten up later, as it has been doing, getting quite hot in the late afternoon. Off to the audiology, sit and wait, clinic this morning, so I had better get a wiggle on. Have a good day one and all.

kittylester Thu 23-Aug-18 08:08:31

I started a thread a while ago asking what we could call our newly refurbished upstairs sitting room. It's still called the playroom! Our youngest is now 31!!

littleflo Thu 23-Aug-18 08:10:17

Good Morning All,
Slightly cloudy here in London. We too have names for our rooms.. When my MiL admired our updated cupboard under the stairs, DH said, “I am glad you like it, you will be living there when you are too old to,live alone” . For the past thirty years it has been known as the Granny Flat.

ginny Thu 23-Aug-18 08:32:43

Good morning all.
Dull and damp in N. Bucks again bit hope it will clear a bit later.
Our extention built over 30 years ago is now our dining room but still often referred to as the playroom.

ginny Thu 23-Aug-18 08:33:51

Too soon !
Hairdresser this morning and then preparations for a long weekend caravaning wit the family.

Anniebach Thu 23-Aug-18 08:41:18

Good morning all and Auntyflo x

Glad your home Marydoll x

Not going anywhere .

NanKate Thu 23-Aug-18 09:02:54

Kitty do you fancy going all exotic and calling it you’re boudoir?

NannyJan53 Thu 23-Aug-18 09:10:36

Oooh fish and chips NanKate a lovely treat!

It would have been good to join you, but Bucks is a tad far smile. Do ya still spake the lingo?

Good luck at audiology clinc Auntieflo, I wear hearing aids so I am a frequent visitor myself.

Good Morning Annie flowers

Now must go and start that ironing!

Have a good Thursday everyone.

NanKate Thu 23-Aug-18 09:13:07
