Morning Mick, morning All. No idea what it’s doing outside as the curtains are still firmly closed in our corner of Somerset. Awake since silly o’clock. No hope is there ? A friend was at the Gloucester market recently mick and loved it, should be a good day for you. Taking our friend to see family today so the motorway for us. Hope Sunday is kind to everyone.

Morning Mick, morning corner, morning all.

It's still dark and quite dark in North Leicestershire.

Up early as we have the massed Lesters here today. The Lesters,as a clan, don't do Christenings but today Wolfie is meeting his family! So, Prosecco and cake this afternoon and lots of cuddles. And, apparently he has just started smiling. sunshine

Morning All

Another still, overcast morning in the north of Norfolk.

The Northern Ballet’s Nutcracker yesterday was wonderful - and so was the lunch out. Today we’re meeting friends for a pub lunch. The diet starts tomorrow - again!

Have a wonderful day Kitty 🥂

Good morning from Birmingham, where it is still dark, but dry and frost- free. I’m watching the first glimmer of dawn with my cup of tea.

Morning everyone.

Still dark but dry for now. We are forecast rain in Kent.
DH is up and getting ready to go to the allotment.
kitty that sounds like such a joyful occasion 😊
Enjoy the market Mick

Morning all from the Scottish borders.

How lovely to wet the baby's head later,

I've been coughing all night as has DH so I've just brought the tea up. What was that thread about teasmades ?
Have a peaceful Sunday everyone.

Good morning everyone, clear sky this morning in Lancashire. Dgd's birthday today and we're also having a gathering, enjoy yours kitty.
Hope you all have a good day.

Gagagran Sun 25-Nov-18 07:48:43

Good Morning everybody! Hope your trip to Gloucester proves enjoyable Mick and your family gathering too kitty. Sounds lovely!

It's stopped raining here on the south coast after a very wet day yesterday but is a uniformly grey sky and quite dull. DH is off with his bike club shortly after opting out yesterday due to taxi duties for DGS.

My mouth has mainly recovered from the dental treatment on Friday, thankfully. Aren't teeth a pain?

Have a good day and safe travelling everyone.

Good morning from a dry, cold East Northants. A hint of blue sky showing through. A bit of shopping, coffee and a jigsaw puzzle afternoon with films planned for today. Hope its a peaceful one for all.

Sar53 Sun 25-Nov-18 07:55:03

Good morning everyone from a wet, grey Essex by the sea. Nothing planned for today. Good job as my nose started streaming last night and my sinuses are very painful this morning. This, whatever it is, has been brewing for days so I hope it disappears quickly.
Enjoy your day everyone.

dragonfly46 Sun 25-Nov-18 07:56:48

Morning all.
Enjoy your day Kitty and * Nana*
Pleased you are recovering Gaga

Nothing of note planned here.

Morning everyone from a dull and damp Fife.. Kitty have a wonderful day. Xmas activities on all over the place now. Have a bit of cleaning to do today then may just have some relaxation time afterwards. Hope everyone has a good Sunday.

NanKate Sun 25-Nov-18 08:08:53

Morning Mick and All.

The Victorian Market sounds wonderful Mick.

Our coughs are slowly going. So many people seem to have them at present.

Off for our usual walk around the NT Gardens at Cliveden. Followed by coffee and our own cake as we are not prepared to pay the exorbitant prices in the cafe. We haven’t been challenged yet.

Have a lovely day with your Wolfie Kitty and the rest of the Kittys.

Glad you enjoyed the Nutcracker Nfk

Good morning from a grey NE.
Going to visit GC this afternoon as they will be wanting their advent calendars for next week. Can't believe November is almost over, time seems to be speeding up.
Enjoy the family gathering kitty, we did the champagne and cake instead of the Baptism with our GC too.

Marydoll Sun 25-Nov-18 08:21:12

Good morning all from a damp Glasgow.
I've been up since before six, coughing. (Perhaps we should start a coughing support thread, there are so many of us suffering. smile.)
I went downstairs, had a cup of tea and watched all the programmes I never get a chance to watch. I do like UK Border Force grin
Enjoy your market, Mick, I'm envious.
Kitty and anyone else having family time, enjoy!
It's another quiet day for me, but I'm not so breathless. Thank goodness!
Happy Sunday, everyone.

Good morning from a grey but dry Colchester. The temperature seems to be creeping up a bit, still in single figures.
Housework, roast chicken and catch up TV today.

Greyduster Sun 25-Nov-18 08:54:37

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. It is dull, cold and threatening to rain in South Yorkshire. I have been awake half the night with a pain in my leg, so I am wondering whether to give junior football a miss this morning. Then DH is finishing off painting the kitchen this afternoon. Enjoy your family day, Kitty, and glad your mouth is feeling better, Gaga. Have a good day, folks.

Good morning Auntyflo and all x

Grey and misty in Mid Wales, can’t see the mountains.

My younger granddaughter is calling today

Hope everyone has a good day x

EllanVannin Sun 25-Nov-18 08:57:13

Good morning All x
Beautiful sunny and bright day here in the NW.
Cats fed and outside. Have been going through an accumulation of papers-------how on earth do they keep mounting up ? I've gone through 2 shredders in the past...……

Hope all is well with everyone.

Blue45Sapphire Sun 25-Nov-18 08:58:27

My goodness, I'm late this morning - I woke up and it was light! Maybe because I took a sleeping tablet last night after a week or so of restless not sleeping nights. My GP prescribed them in February after DH died and I've still got over half the pack left, so I don't think there's any danger of me becoming an addict!
Anyway, good morning all. It's dry and a bit brighter than yesterday..
A day in town yesterday, it was really busy. Treated myself to breakfast out, then finished the Christmas shopping. And then celebrated by going into DH's favourite town centre pub and having a glass of Prosecco.
Shall feel a bit sad today because on this Sunday every year DH and I would always attend a local business's annual Champagne buffet lunch and exhibition. They sent me an invitation as usual this year but as it's always held out of town and I no longer drive I just can't get there. Ah well....
So, a lazy day at home, catching up with the papers and may well sort through some more photos.
Hope it's a good day for everyone.

A late good morning from me too. Off to sort DD’s (very full) loft out, so she can store some of the baby things Evie no longer needs until she decides what to do with them. They do grow up far too fast don’t they?

Have a good Sunday everyone.

NannyJan53 Sun 25-Nov-18 09:07:06

Good Morning from a bright and dry Black Country.

Had an enjoyable evening watching 'The Broken Truce' at Stourbridge town hall, then over the road for a curry. So a late night and not long awake!

Today we are going to look at options for worktops for our impending re-vamped kitchen ie, just replacing doors and worktops and a splash back instead of tiles.

Roast lamb for dinner tonight
flowers for Blue45Sapphire hope you have a peaceful day.

Good morning from an overcast south east.

Off to Waitrose fairly soon to do some shopping and get a free Sunday paper. We have Sunday lunch with extended family today a pre Christmas get together.

Have a nice day with your gd today Annie.

A nugget of information for those coughing and spluttering, I met up with a friend last week who has been plagued with an enduring cough and she swears by Osteocare Liquid, apparently it was the only thing that helps hers, she discovered that inadvertently when she was taking a dose confused anyway that's second hand advice, I haven't tried it, but nevertheless made a note in my phone for future use.

Have a good day everyone.

Good morning from a beautiful, bright and sunny Morecambe Bay in Lancashire. Hooray, it's a little warmer today (no frost) and there's no wind! (Although we could do with some of the latter as have a load of washing on the rotary dryer.) Wishing you all a happy day, dear GNs.
