Good Morning Mick and everyone.

It's too dark to see what the weather is doing but the forecast is not bad. Supposed to get very windy around the middle of the day here on the south coast.

I have to pick up a book I ordered from the library this morning and I need to do some cleaning now Fred the painter's gone for the weekend. He will be back to finish off on Monday and its looking "well posh" grin

Hope the day is a good one for us all.

Good morning all. Very windy in Northampton.

Lovely lunch out with friends yesterday, followed by a browse around the shopping centre. Rarely get to this one as it's the other side of town.

DS coming this morning to get Christmas decorations down from the loft.

Rugby this afternoon, hope it stays dry.

Hope the day goes well for you all.

Good morning all from North Leicestershire where it is also quite windy.

This morning I am doing brunch for DH and DS1 before they go to the match and this afternoon I'm doing a bucket collection for the Alzheimer's Society while a brass band play carols in our local shopping centre.

Strictly and pizza tonight!

Good morning everyone from a dry Essex by the sea. A visit to a local town this morning then probably wrap a few more presents this afternoon.
We watched 'Suite Francaise' last night, well worth watching.
Have a good day everyone.

Good morning All. x
Pretty windy and wet as I let the cats out but not too cold at present. Black as night outside with the brightest star still visible. Roll on Spring.

Must post Christmas card to Oz this morning, Might think about doing the tree this weekend.

Hope all is well with everyone.

Greetings all from a wet and windy Aberdeenshire.
Baking's all done...ten dozen pieces in total so shall deliver it to Santa's grotto this afternoon, before home to tea and toasted crumpet (the great big one's). Shall attack the cards this evening. Have a great day everybody.

Good morning. Going to see Mum today. The care home want her to have smaller knickers! We took her for an x-ray on Thursday and she has broken the bone in her little toe. Not sure they can do anything.

Morning Mick, morning All from a wet and very windy corner of Somerset. Not sure what we will do today, friends staying, definitely something inside, it’s not a day for a beach walk that’s for sure. Hope Saturday is kind to everyone.

Good morning all, recovering from my ladies' night last night.
Damp here in Glasgow and rain forecast later. Of course it's going to be raining we are not taking the car!

We are off out for a family lunch to celebrate DIL's fortieth birthday. Her own family have ignored it, so we are all trying to give her a really special day. sad.

Best wishes to Mr Kitty and all those feeling poorly.

Morning Mick and All.

Clear and dry in South Bucks.

Either want to try and finish my cards today and sort out presents so I know what else to buy or make our annual excursion to Disraeli’s home NT Hughenden Manor to see the Christmas decorations. This year they are copying what the house looked like when Queen Victoria came to stay. It is always magical there and we really look forward to it.

Best of luck Kitty with your tin rattling. Hope people are generous for such a worthy cause.

Good morning, dry but windy in Lancashire.
flowers flowers for you and your Mum dragonfly.
Present wrapping for me today.
Have a good day everyone.

NanKate Sat 08-Dec-18 07:47:08

Two days of celebrations on the trot Mary you will need to take to your bed tomorrow to recover. 😉

Marydoll Sat 08-Dec-18 07:51:36

Yes, Kate, but that will be me until next Christmas! grin

Willow10 Sat 08-Dec-18 08:02:45

Good morning all. Venus looked lovely in the sky next to the church this morning. Hoping to get some washing out in the wind today. The annual trek up and down the garden steps to get the Christmas decorations begins in earnest today! Hope its a good one for everyone.

Morning All

Just a bit breezy here in Norfolk too. Dry at the moment but heavy showers keep bustling through.

DH has bought a load of dry root hedging to replenish our hedge which he’s marmalized as it got far too thick. It’s a bit thin now! So we’ll be gardening.

Good Evening Mick and Everyone; Only 27C today; Cloudy, humid, no rain; putting up the sun umbrella today for the first time this summer obviously put the moz on our heat-wave sad Had shepherd's pie from the freezer menu for dinner. Definitely more user-friendly than Butter Chicken(Indian Style)!

harrigran Sat 08-Dec-18 08:11:24

Good morning, gale force winds here and been blowing all night. I am staying in the house today.
Finished writing cards yesterday and put up a small tree in the music room, will think about the one for the lounge on Monday.

Good morning from a bright and windy Birmingham. My daughter and grandson stayed over last night, so my living room looks like an exploded toy shop this morning. Grandson took his first steps yesterday, and this morning there is no stopping him. Tai Chi this afternoon, and to partner for dinner and tv catch up this evening- The Little Drummer Girl. I hope everyone has a good day!

Good morning from sunny Colchester. The howling wind woke me a couple of times last night and it's still a bit breezy now.
Will go for a walk this morning as rain is forecast again later. Bit of shopping.
I have made a start on cards and presents, but DH is a bit Bah humbug about getting the decs out of the garage.

TerriBull Sat 08-Dec-18 08:35:49

Good morning from the edge of west London, it looks to be a bright clear day this morning.

I will be writing some more Christmas cards this morning, what a chore it is, I almost envy those who don't bother, but part of me tells me to keep the tradition going.

Taking gd swimming again pm. Strictly tonight and am looking forward to the next two parts of "The Sinner"

Have a good day everyone.

Greyduster Sat 08-Dec-18 08:38:32

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. It is dull and grey but dry for the moment in South Yorkshire. We don’t have a lot planned today. I did Christmas shopping yesterday - an event so momentous it stopped the traffic!! I had to lie down in a dark room when we came home.😁 I must write my cards today. Have a good day folks.

Good morning Auntyflo and all x

No idea if we have rain in Powys, I am still in bed.

Hope everyone has a good day x

Good Morning all from a bright Fife. At least it is weather wise. Sorry over slept this morning, have a headache not due to any Christmas parties unfortunately, just a headache and going out to meet friends in 45 mins. Hope everyone is fine, if not take care of yourselves. So sorry it's rushed. Enjoy everyone going out to festivities.

Morning everyone.
A bright sunny but windy day in Kent.
Both DGS picked up their first pairs of glasses yesterday. They look so grown up. I do wonder though how at 9 and 6 nobody noticed they needed them.
DH is cooking breakfast and will then walk to town, whilst I do housework.
Have a good day everyone.
