Good Morning Everyone,

Its light but its cold and grey here in Brackley this morning.

Slight change of routine today , off by coach again to see " Phantom" at Her Majesty's Theatre in London , this afternoon.

Good morning Mick and everyone from a showery, gloomy and chilly south coast!

Hope you enjoy "Phantom" again Mick. I saw it in the 1980s with Sarah Brightman and Michael Crawford starring. Wonderful!

We are off to the supermarket shortly but am not in the best mood for it after a poor sleep. I never have a good night after choir.

I hope the day is kind to us all. sunshine

North Leicestershire is bright and cold this morning and we had a frost overnight.

Enjoy Phantom, mick.

We have the hospital later and maybe a film if we have any energy left.
Looking forward to a birthday weekend with our DGC.

Enjoy Phantom of the opera Mick

Good morning from a chilly but bright Birmingham. Off to pick up my grandaughter soon. We will go to the park, and later a friend is coming to lunch.

Good Morning all.

It is very wet here on Severnside.
I’m going to put some shiny stuff on the downstairs toilet floor so it will be able to dry in peace while I am out at u3a today.
Enjoy your theatre trip Mick and your meet up kittylester and hope everyone else has a good day too 🌺

Morning Mick and All.

Brighter in South Bucks than I expected.

On my own for a few days so must make a monumental effort to do all the paperwork that I let mount up.

Enjoy the wonderful show Mick.

Please save me a 🍰 Kitty.

Good Morning Mick and everyone.
Rain and sleet here on our bit of the S Welsh coast, radio says there is snow falling over 300 ft.

Enjoy the theatre later Mick and have a good day all.

A cool, damp start here on the NE coast but the sun is just starting to break through. A very busy day areas with school runs and meetings at “that awful place” . Saw the GP yesterday who has arranged for some tests at the hospital tomorrow. She suggested I take some time off “on the sick” . Ha ha what a joke that is.... as the saying goes “there is no rest for the wicked”.

Enjoy the theatre Mick and your meet up Kitty .

Have a good Thursday everyone x

Beautiful crisp sunny day in Leicestershire.

Busy day ahead. Coffee with friends, meeting up with other GNs this afternoon and theatre this evening.

Hoping everyone has a good day.

Greyduster Thu 04-Apr-19 07:25:44

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. It’s a bit grey and misty in South Yorkshire this morning, and I am waiting for GS to be dropped off for the day. He wants to bake today, but other than that I have no idea how the day will pan out. I don’t think the weather is going to be very helpful. Have a good day folks.

Morning All

Here in the north of Norfolk we have blue skies, fluffy white clouds - and a shimmer of frost on everything.

Out to lunch today with old friends. Looking forward to it.

Urmstongran Thu 04-Apr-19 07:46:02

Good morning everyone from a beautifully sunny Malaga. The Mediterranean is a sharp cobalt blue line along the horizon and the early morning sky adjacent to it is a pretty shell pink. The sun is up now and promising another warm day.

I’m meeting a friend who lives out here in our favourite bar at 3pm for a crisp gin and tonic (hands up who thought I was going to say salad?). Saw a little mini mart over here yesterday - popular with the ex pats - called ‘Spainburys’ which made me chuckle!

Enjoy your theatre Mick, your GN meet up kitty and dragonfly and do try to pace yourself gillybob whilst you await your test results.

Ginny42 Thu 04-Apr-19 07:49:10

Morning Mick and everyone. No snow here, but everywhere white with frost and the sky is blue in Cheshire. Will have to de-ice the car to go to painting this morning.

Lunch with a friend, then dinner this evening with friends - I can diet tomorrow!

BlueSapphire Thu 04-Apr-19 07:49:34

Good morning everyone; it's a lovely bright morning in Northampton, but cold and frosty.

Has a lovely day out in Milton Keynes yesterday, a nice lunch and shopping. When I got home there were flowers from DD and DSil, and then DS came round with more flowers. I am spoiled!

Going out for lunch today with my oldest friend; her DH died 8 years ago and it would have been their golden wedding tomorrow. Must remember to write the little card I've got for her.

Hope everyone's day goes well.

If I close my eyes, I’m there Urmstongran ...........sigh........

Good morning from a bright and sunny E. Northants, although a layer frost everywhere. A very heavy hailstorm yesterday which covered like snow. Food shopping with grandaughter today. Enjoy Phantom Mick.

Morning Mick, morning All from a very wet corner of Somerset. Not nice out there, windy too. Mr C is still decorating, another wardrobe to sort for me before a spot of childminding this evening. Should be almost sorted by Sunday, be pleased to be tidy again. Hope Thursday is kind to everyone.

Good morning from damp,dull Shropshire.Collecting DGD from playgroup later then back here for her Thursday sleepover.
Urmstongran,I suggested to my husband that we sell the house and buy a small cottage here and an apartment in Spain but he didn’t think I was serious🙄I was!
Gilly,please try and take some time for yourself,I understand you can’t be off sick but even half an hour here and there would help you.Please know that we are thinking of you💐
Have a good day everyone.

Brunette10 Thu 04-Apr-19 08:14:18

Good Morning all from a dreech Fife. Not pleasant at all out at the moment. Urmstongran - sounds wonderful - enjoy! DH was up through the night with a sore back goodness knows what he has done, keeping fingers crossed it gets better. Some shopping to be done today. Hope Thursday is good o all.
