Good Morning Everyone,
Its grey and cloudy with rain here in brackley this morning.
My usual Saturday hopefully there will be a flea market on in Buckingham , wet weather in the past there has seen low attendance stall wise.

Good Morning Mick and everyone from a dry, cloudy and very windy south coast.

DH is out with his cycling club this morning then off to Fratton Park this afternoon. I shall be pottering and recovering from my still sore mouth. It is improving but the stitches are irritating it and chewing is not easy.

Hope the day is kind to us all.

Good morning from a brightening Birmingham. Woken this morning by my eighteen month old grandson singing in his cot, so I’m having tea while he has his milk and prepares to wreak havoc on my living room. He’s here until mid-day, then we’re all going out for lunch.
Hope your mouth improves Gagarin, and Micheal, have a good rummage in the fle market.

Good morning all from a grey, windy Aberdeenshire. Yesterday was not a good day...the mutt and I had a lovely walk in the woods but back at the car, the wind blew the car door back on to my cheekbone and popped a lens out of my glasses, b****r! As I tried to put the said lens back, it fell down the side of the car seat, b****r again! Having managed to drive with one working eye, without hitting anyone, to a local garage, a very kind chap found the lens and fished it out. Next step was to drive, very carefully, to the optician but when I went in, was greeted by four large guys wielding refit time! Anyway, there is another optician in town who helped me out. Back home, my friend arrived and I made the usual mug of tea and forgot that I had balanced a plate of jammy scones on the chair, which I then sat on! B****r again...I should have stayed in bed. Am also sporting a black eye from the bash. Have a mishap free day everyone.

Good morning all from Glasgow, it's snowing quite heavily here and starting to lie.

Having a catch up day today, nothing much got done, due to having DGD here for most of the week.
Thank you to all who sent good wishes on hearing she was ill. I thought she sounded a bit better ysterday, but as some of you will know, asthma is so unpredictable.

We are taking her for a sleepover, to let mummy and daddy get a sleep tonight.

Gaga, I'm sorry to hear your moouth is still painful.
Mick, enjoy your day, I love a good rummage!

Enjoy your Saturday everyone.

Good Morning everyone
Damp and grey here. I think I’ll have a day in the shed then make a curry.

I hope you all have a good day and certainly for some of you after yesterday 💐

Good Morning , more rain here but at least the wind has died down

Kalu Sat 16-Mar-19 07:58:34

Marydoll lots more big, get better soon cuddles for your wee GD

Good Morning from a dry South Welsh coast, blowing a gale outside and rain due this afternoon.

Will be watching the rugby later so an easy supper planned - pasta with mushrooms and homemade tomato sauce from the freezer.

Gaga, best wishes to you 💐
Gagin, what a b.......r of a day for you yesterday. Glad you found an optician to help. Stay in today and take care.
Have a good day everyone.

Morning all from a very blustery North Leicestershire.

We need to collect Dh's new glasses and then buy some flowers.

NanKate Sat 16-Mar-19 08:13:08

Morning Mick and All.

What an awful catalogue of disasters Oldgaijin glad you survived the day.

Mary you are a star ⭐️. What would our families do without hands on grandparents?

Hope your flea market is open Mick.

In recovery mode after looking after our two turbo powered DGSs for a second lot of days. We’ve been given a whole week off before we are back on duty. 👍

NanKate Sat 16-Mar-19 08:14:20

Morning Kitty. Loved the photo of Wolfie in his bath.

Susan56 Sat 16-Mar-19 08:16:10

Good morning from a very wet and blustery Shropshire.Hairdressers today then out in the wind to undo all her good work on the walk home🙄😂
oldgaijin hope you have a better today and hope everybody has the best day they can.

cornergran Sat 16-Mar-19 08:19:04

Morning Mick, morning All from a damp and still windy corner of Somerset. Had a young lodger overnight, it seems my interpretation of food requests for yesterday was inadequate but I’m forgiven as breakfast is ‘yummy’. Hope your mouth gets less sore gaga and Saturday is kind to everyone.

Greyduster Sat 16-Mar-19 08:24:00

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. Grey, wet but not too breezy - yet.
Nothing much planned today. DH is going to the pub to watch a football match as we don’t have Sky. I have some ironing to do. Hope your GD has a better day today, Mary. Have a good day folks.

BlueSapphire Sat 16-Mar-19 08:24:50

Good morning all from a very windy Northampton.

Not much planned for today, probably Sainsbury's this morning and then watch the rugby this afternoon on tv and read the papers.

Had letter from hospital to say no sign of a fracture in my wrist, but they still want to see me next week for a check up. Apparently they could tell from the xrays that I have osteo-arthritis my wrist - news to me!

Hope everyone's day goes well.

Urmstongran Sat 16-Mar-19 08:28:58

Good morning everyone from a very wet South Manchester. Saturday = bacon and egg for breakfast! No plans till this evening when we walk round to babysit the two cronies.

Willow10 Sat 16-Mar-19 08:33:57

Good morning all from a windy E. Northants. Bit of shopping to do this morning, quiet afternoon watching Vera and then a pub Quiz tonight. Oldgaigin that was some day you had yesterday - hope you are feeling better today! These things usually come in threes, but you excelled yourself! grin

Nanabanana1 Sat 16-Mar-19 08:34:46

Morning all, still a blustery and wet day in Torbay today roll on some good weather as garden is in desperate need of attention.
Taking grandchildren back home later, they have stayed over last night.
Hope everyone has a good day.

harrigran Sat 16-Mar-19 08:39:50

Good morning from a damp NE, we have snow on the grass but it has melted elsewhere. Sounds as if the wind has dropped which is good.
Disturbed night so will take it easy today.

gillybob Sat 16-Mar-19 08:53:02

Good morning from a very wet NE coast. Thankfully (as harri said ) the wind has dropped but I think the rain is here for the day.

What “a series of unfortunate events” (the older grandchildren love the Lemony Snicket books and film) you had yesterday oldgaijin , hope your eye is not too sore.

Glad to here your little granddaughters asthma has eased a bit Marydoll poor little lamb.

DH is at “that place” all day today (well we did have last Monday off you know..... couldn’t possibly let things slide) although he’s not feeling too good. I’m going to catch up on some housework and do a bit food shopping later. I never quite manage to get all of my own shopping when I take my dad shopping on a Friday afternoon .

Have a good Saturday everyone.
