Good morning, Mick. Enjoy your Christmas dinner.

Weather in Malta today is sunny although the weather forecast predicted rain and stormy weather.

I’m starting the day on a sad note as I am just off to the funeral of a dear friend who used to work for my husband and I when we had our restaurant. She was only diagnosed 8 months ago with a brain tumour, aged 62. 😢

Hope everyone has a good day.sunshine

Good morning all, looking cold and frosty in Northampton this morning.

Sorry to hear about your friend, Bellasnana, how sad. No age.

Day out at Rushden Lakes yesterday, but sorry to hear that the lovely cafe/champagne bar in House of Fraser is closing this weekend. I always go there for lunch. Also the Chanel make-up counter in the same store is closing, but I managed to get a lipstick there yesterday. Shall have to go to Milton Keynes now for Chanel; their lipsticks are the only expensive make-up I buy. Wandered round M&S with vouchers to spend, but failed to find anything.

M&S cafe this morning for coffee, and pick up a few things. DGDs this afternoon after school for tea - roast chicken for them tonight!

Hope the day goes well for all.

Good morning all and to those who follow. Dark here in Fife and bit frosty, not as cold as yesterday though. Feeling yuk, have a horrible cold and sore throat, not had a good night. No matter will have to trudge on, shopping, cleaning to do, that will make me feel better tchgrin. Hope Friday is good for everyone, for those feeling under the weather, chin up!

Good morning from Birmingham. It’s dark, but doesn’t look frosty from my apartment window. I’m having my morning tea in peace before my daughter drops my grandson off for the day- he’s staying the night too. We’re going to a little children’s concert this morning, on the bus.
Have a good day everyone- enjoy your Christmas dinner, Micheal.

Good Morning early birds!

We covered the car last night as frost was forecast overnight, here on the south coast. First time so far this winter.

I am off to the WI Christmas meeting this morning and also need to ring the dentist as a bit of tooth fell off the tooth with a temporary crown, after tea. She said to go back if I had any problems before the next appointment on 3 January. Could have done without this!

Hope the day is a good one for us all and that your Christmas dinner is delicious Mick! party

Morning everyone.

It's dry and no wind in Kent, just light enough to see a cloudy sky.
Usual Friday food shop this morning with a stop for coffee.
Bellasnana condolences on the loss of your friend. I hope the day goes smoothly.

Good morning all from a very frosty Shepperton.
Bellasnana, thinking of you 💐 & anyone else whos day will be tinged with sadness.
Up early again as H has an AM survey to do.
Going to garden centre this morning, before the hoards, to buy a gift for my lovely ex-boss and her family.
I had a very late night, so I think a long doze this afternoon is in order. Have good days.

Good morning from a cold and frosty East Northants. Successful shopping trip yesterday, with grandaughter buying the Christmas outfits she wanted for her and the two greatgrandchildren. Today I'll be changing the bed, washing, general housework and cleaning the inside of car. (How can one tiny child make so much mess?confused

Enjoy the Brussels sprouts Mick. I only eat them at Xmas.
