Hi folks.

Morning All,

I had hoped to find Mick would have kicked things off for us but obviously his Windows 10 is still playing up.

So dark and cold in South Bucks. I notice the lighter nights but not mornings.

Having a coffee with a friend this morning.

Good morning NanKate and all who follow.

Been up since 5.30, thought I would see the blood moon. Saw partial eclipse but not red.
Thick frost here in Kent. -2°
Have a good day everyone.

Good morning NanKate, Annie pbach and everyone. Still dark here in Birmingham. I got up at 4 to see the moon, but couldn’t see it from my apartment,and decided it was too cold to get dressed and walk round the block.
Early appointment this morning, then the inauguration of a new group at the arts centre, then writing class, then my daughters are coming to see “The Favourite” this evening. So basically I will spend all day at the arts centre! I’m not usually so busy now I have retired!

Good Evening Nan! Been waiting ages for someone to open up! I'd do it ,no prob, but I'm not allowed and I don't want any more lines! Haven't done the last lot yet! grin
Another lovely day, warm/hot 25C

Good morning Kate and Nina. Once again, thanks for kicking us off, Kate. Hopefully Mick will be back on track. in the next few days.

It's decidedly chilly here in Glasgow, it's -2 degrees here.
DH forgot to adjust the heating and I have had a bad night, painwise, so I'm going back to bed for an hour.

We had a lovely day out yesterday, but I have paid the price for overdoing it, so a day in for me. My cull is nearly finished and I have been ruthless! Despite that I still have too many clothes. grin

I hope everyone has a good day and those who are unwell feel better soon.

Marydoll Mon 21-Jan-19 07:08:04

Good morning also Dora and naughty boy Rufus I would do those lines, Rufus, under Kate's soft exterior is a heart of steel! grin

Good Morning all.
Still have the same weather, damp and dark.

I haven’t had much sleep which is unusual for me. Could have been because I was watching Tin Star and it was very gory.
Looking forward to DD coming later.

Perhaps Mick will be here tomorrow.
Hope you all enjoy your Monday. 🌸

Morning All. Thank you for opening up kate, I imagine mick is more than frustrated with Windows by now. All I can tell you about our corner of Somerset is it’s very dark and looks dry. No plans to test the temperature yet. Lunch out today and Granny detail this evening, not sure what in between other than laundry which multiplies overnight. Hope Monday is kind to everyone.

Morning all and thanks for starting the thread kate.

It's very cold and still dark in North Leicestershire . We didn't see the eclipse either.

An admin day for me.

NanKate Mon 21-Jan-19 07:29:02

Morning Mary you have got me right, I will stand no nonsense😉

Good to see you back here Rufus you give many of us a smile and a few of us a tut tut !

I had forgotten about the eclipse, I shall go and check it out online Kitty.

Morning all from a still dark Northampton. At least it's dry.
Got up a couple of times to see the wolf moon, but too cloudy.
Yoga this morning followed by coffee and then may pop into town to get a book token for DD' s husband's birthday. It's not till next Monday, but don't have a free day this week in time to get it in the post. Also to return the book I got DD as she has already read it.
Hope everyone's day goes well.

Morning all from icy Scottish Borders.
I got up at 5 to see the pink moon!

I hope you all have a good day.

Morning to everyone and to those who follow. It's very cold here in Fife today. Heating has been on for a while but it's still chilly. Going to catch up on chores which I should have finished off yesterday but didn't. Gas man also due today for maintenance on boiler. Hope all this feeling under the weather improve throughout the day. have a good day.

Willow10 Mon 21-Jan-19 07:46:28

Good morning all. Still dark but dry and it doesn't feel quite as chilly in East Northants. I have a man coming to measure up for my new front door this morning. A bit of shopping later and then a dentist check up. Hope it's a pleasant day for everyone.

Morning all. Got up to see the moon at 5 too Grammaretto it looked a dirty orange here in Glamorgan. Stars were bright and the Plough looked amazing.
Went for Sunday lunch yesterday but at 3 pm, there weren't any left.
Hope it is a good day for everyone.

Morning All

Grey and cold here in Norfolk.

DH got up a couple of times last night and looked at the moon but said it looked much the same as a normal full moon. He obviously missed the eclipse bit! I slumbered on!

Our dining room is all cleared for the nice man who’s coming in half an hour to make a start on laying a Karndean floor. It’s a the route through our house as we have no hallway so it needs something tougher than carpet. A surprisingly big room now its cleared!

dragonfly46 Mon 21-Jan-19 08:00:17

Morning all. Not feeling so good. Had a tummy ache all night so not slept well.

Gardener coming this am and was going to see Mum but better not in case I give them something.

Good morning from a cold and foggy Lancashire. Nothing planned today except picking up dgs after swimming this evening.
Have a good day everyone.

Greyduster Mon 21-Jan-19 08:10:18

Good morning, Kate and all GNs. Cold and grey in South Yorkshire. DH’s back is a bit better today but we have a way to go. School run this afternoon. Good choice, NfK. DD has had Karndean down for years - it still looks brilliant.
Have a good day folks. Hope to see back Mick soon.

Morning all from chilly Letchworth. Cold but dry here this morning, so different from yesterday , thick fog and frost then blue sky and sunshine. Nothing much planned for today just some chores that need doing.Busy week ahead though, so this will be my 'day of rest'!! smile Wishing all those in pain or distress comfort of some kind.

silverlining48 Mon 21-Jan-19 08:20:56

Good morning to all. We are down on the kent coast celebrating dh birthday. He is 72 today ( but still asleep, and snoring). When we met he was 18. It’s hard to fathom where all that time has gone.
A wonderful sunrise over a sparkling bluish sea sets us up for a day trip over to historic Rye. I am extra happy because I havnt been outside for over a week due to being poorly. Have a nice day everyone.

Susan56 Mon 21-Jan-19 08:34:30

Good morning all.A frosty morning in North Shropshire.We are going down to West Wales today to visit my husbands family.A long drive but will have a coffee and then a lunch stop on our way.Have a good day everyone.

Mapleleaf Mon 21-Jan-19 08:40:14

Good morning.
It's trying to brighten up a bit, but still looks damp and cold. I think it has rained in the night, judging by the puddles. Didn't see the moon, a bit too cloudy, I think, at least it was when I looked through the window.
Coffee morning this am.
Hope you all enjoy a good day. 🙂

Good Morning everyone from a frosty south coast. Temperature is currently -0.7c outside.

Went to bed with a very sore throat last night and have woken up sounding like a creaking gate. Doubt I'll be singing at my choir on Wednesday unless I join the bass section!

Have a good day everyone! sunshine
