Quiet day to today , watching cycling on TV latter , think will do laundry this morning.

Morning Mick, is it that time already? Just tweaked the curtain and peered out, it's a murky morning in Cheshire.

Hoping the forecast for a brighter day is correct after yesterday's rain. Meeting some friends and their GC at a park with big climbing equipment for older children and taking a picnic.

Have a good day everyone.

Morning mick, ginny, everyone.

It's cloudy here in North Leicestershire but not cold.

I have DD3's 3 children this afternoon. It's about 40 years since I had sole charge of a baby and 2 children. shock Wish me luck.

Morning Mick, morning All from a cloudy, dry corner of Somerset. Certainly do wish you luck kitty, I have confidence, you’ll be more than fine. Recovery day here today, little planned other than a bit of post child cleaning. Hope Wednesday is kind to everyone.

It’s like riding a bike Kitty, trust me, you’ll be fine! Have a lovely day

Gagagran Wed 17-Apr-19 06:54:00

Morning all!

It was misty when I got up at 5.30 but the sun is now coming up, here on the south coast and it is definitely much milder. I think we are in for a lovely day.

We did a major shrub removal in the garden yesterday so that I could relocate an obelisk and despite DH's initial misgivings, he now agrees that it looks much better. (It won't be long before he claims it was his idea!). The root took a lot of getting out and I could never have managed it. Thankfully he is still very strong at nearly 77.

Looking forward to choir this evening and the first full run through of the concert programme. Our MD has taken out some of the pieces we were struggling with so it should be less stressful.

Hope the day is kind to us all. sunshine

Good morning from the NE coast. It’s a bit of a misty start but the sun is just breaking through.

We have just got the Mary Poppins DVD for the grandchildren who loved the original Mick . We haven’t had chance to watch it yet and will save it for one of our special movie nights. I’m glad you enjoyed it.

Good luck with your childcare kitty you will sail through it ! I had 4 yesterday (13,11,9 and 11 months) it was as chaotic as ever but everyone survived (although the poor house breathed a sigh of relief when they all went home) .

We pulled a couple of overgrown shrubs out of DD’s garden last weekend Gaga (planted in the wrong places) and it’s not an easy task is it?

It’s a short week this week and a long weekend ahead although I still have childcare on Saturday and Monday for the baby so there won’t be too much relaxation.

Hope everyone has a good Wednesday x

Good morning all, from another sunny day in Prague!
Just about to pack as we leave Prague today and drive to Nuremburg to join our boat on the Danube.
Had a great walking tour of Prague yesterday and a fun evening at a folklore restaurant with traditional Czech food, music and dancing.
Hoping the weather stays fine.
Have a good day everyone.

Good Morning from a sunny S Welsh coast.

Have a good day everyone.

gillybob Wed 17-Apr-19 07:25:21

I hope you continue to enjoy your trip up the Danube Blue Sapphire it sounds brilliant..... there goes that music 🎶 🎶 again .

Brunette10 Wed 17-Apr-19 07:26:36

Good Morning from a dull Fife. I believe it's to get better though. BlueSapphire - your journey sounds wonderful, are you on a River Cruise? Have DGS's again today but not sure what we shall do yet. Hopefully get out in the garden. Hope todays good for everyone.

Urmstongran Wed 17-Apr-19 07:29:00

Good morning everyone from another sunny Malaga. No particular plans today but it is lovely just pleasing ourselves as to what we do or don’t!

You sound as if you’re enjoying your holiday BlueSapphire which is great.

It’s a friends birthday today in Manchester I must call her later this morning. Hope Wednesday is good to us all. x

Sar53 Wed 17-Apr-19 07:30:14

Good morning everyone from a bright and sunny Essex by the sea. It looks like being a lovely day. I'm off to the opticians this morning then packing for my trip to DD1 in Leamington for Easter. DH is off tomorrow to the South of France to spend a week on his friend's boat, I'll be doing his packing too !!! He gets his clothes out and I pack his suitcase.
Have a good day everyone.

Pittcity Wed 17-Apr-19 07:33:29

Good morning from sunny Colchester. Forecast to reach 17° later....what to wear?
Into town for weekly Coffee meetup this morning.

gillybob Wed 17-Apr-19 07:38:11

Do you go up the Danube or down? 🤔

Susan56 Wed 17-Apr-19 07:44:34

Good morning fromShropshire,looks like it’s going to be a better day weather wise today.
Mum,DD2,SIL and little B arrive today.They are booked into a local spa hotel not far from our house.We are happy to have them here but mum likes the hotel life and as she is too frail to go on holiday now,she likes to stay in this hotel if DD and family stay too.They will come here for some meals and we will join them some of the time.
Kitty,good luck with childcare,we will just have one year old B today,will manage with the two of us!Am full of admiration for you and Gilly looking after 3 and 4 respectively.
Mick,we loved Mary Poppins returns.
Blue Sapphire,enjoy your trip down the Danube,its spectacular.
Have a good day everyone.

Justme67 Wed 17-Apr-19 07:46:32

Good morning everyone, the sun is shining, and the forecast seems promising, so perhaps some good gardening weather is here for a few days. I have my gardener, coming today to discuss getting the garden tidy, it was neglected whilst my husband was not well. Had a lovely morning yesterday chatting with friends over coffee and cake. Enjoy your days.

Marydoll Wed 17-Apr-19 07:47:27

Good morning all from a cloudy Glasgow. It looks as if it has been raining all night.

Off to get bloods done and BP checked, as I start my new medication. It means fortnightly checks for the next year. sad
What little free time I do have seems to be disappearing fast!
However, I will try and squeeze in a little bit of retail therapy as well! grin

BlueSapphire, I am so envious of your trip. My first ever trip to Germany was at seventeen on a school exchange trip to Nuremberg. It started a lifelong love of Germany.

Good luck to all those looking after grandchildren, I'm recovering from yesterday's visit!

aggie Wed 17-Apr-19 07:55:49

Good Morning All , sounds a bit blowy here in Sligo , we enjoyed watching the Surfing yesterday , huge waves , Think we are visiting Yeats grave today

Greyduster Wed 17-Apr-19 07:58:49

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. Cloudy but warm in South Yorkshire. We are hoping to get out for a walk and lunch today. At the moment I’m not sure my legs will get me out of bed! Kitty you will be fine with the GC I’m sure, and it will be fun! My phone woke me up at six forty. GS was saying hello! Love the boy! Have a good day folks.

Jaysbee Wed 17-Apr-19 07:59:46

Good morning from the Irish countryside! The day looks promising - blue skies and sunshine. It's a day in the garden for me, planting out some more pea and broad bean seedlings

dragonfly46 Wed 17-Apr-19 08:10:38

Good morning still a little murky in Leicestershire.

DH has doctors appointment this morning and I have a hair appointment this afternoon. Not half as exciting as kitty and sapphire.
I hope your new meds make you feel better marydoll.

NannyJan53 Wed 17-Apr-19 08:14:28

Good Morning from a bright Black Country.

Took 2 DGD's to see Mary Poppins at the cinema yesterday, only cost £2.50 each as it was a special children's screening.
DD and her DH arrived back about 6pm yesterday after their 2 day Spa Hotel break. So I am relaxing today.

Sounds like a lovely holiday so far BlueSapphire, Prague is on my list of places to visit.

Have a good day everyone.

DoraMarr Wed 17-Apr-19 08:21:02

Good morning from Birmingham, where it is cloudy but mild. It’s nice to be back home after our trip. We came back on Brittany Ferries from Santander, and I must commend the staff for their care. My partner has PD and walks with a stick. When we were checking in the woman official asked if we would like some assistance. Three people came and helped us with our luggage- mine too, and we boarded first. Then when we arrived we were helped again. We loved our trip in our cabin with a balcony- lots of room and comfortable beds.
Today I am having tea with my daughters, and a mystery treat beforehand, which is intriguing!

Harris27 Wed 17-Apr-19 08:27:31

Good morning all from still cold NE. Off to work later but enjoying cuppa in bed before I get up.trying to work outbid weather will be good for our rare days off over the weekend.just be nice to have some time off. Enjoy Wednesday.

oldgaijin Wed 17-Apr-19 08:36:46

Good morning from a fairly bright but dry Aberdeenshire. It's still a bit nippy, especially out in my nightie to feed the pheasants and fill the bird feeders...nae a bonny sicht! The mutt and I are off to the woods soon to meet his mates...he is so in love with Pixie, a little shitzu, who adores him in return. Am off to ceramics class tonight...I have finished my green man, very pagan, and shall hang it in the greenhouse. I wonder what underwhelming tat I can make next? It's good craic though and a fun bunch of ladies. Have a good day everyone.

Annapops Wed 17-Apr-19 08:45:51

Good morning all.
Our trip to Brugge now seems like a lifetime away as we settle back into grandparent duty ( school holidays/ extra days).
It was a wonderful experience and although I had previously enjoyed Amsterdam, Brugge has much more going for it. Everything is easily reached within walking distance and each street turns into a fairy tale scene. Such beautiful churches with astounding works of art.
We didn't get to the hospital museum linamillion but we did visit the folk museum which was fascinating.
Well, back to reality as we await the arrival of GS 3 who is the liveliest bundle of them all. A busy day ahead.
Have a great day everyone.

NanKate Wed 17-Apr-19 08:49:02

Good morning Mick and All.

Bright and chilly in South Bucks and getting warmer by the day.

Best of luck Kitty. It’s footie on the green in front of our house this morning then we are taking the two DGSs to the Dinosaur Live show this afternoon. 🦖🦕

crazyH Wed 17-Apr-19 08:52:22

Goodmorning Mick and all......desperate for a hot coffee. Have a lovely day ! xx

lovebeigecardigans1955 Wed 17-Apr-19 08:52:43

Morning all from South Notts. It's bit overcast at the moment. Need to fill in a form and arrange an appointment at the vet for puss who's off his food. He's 19 but still enjoys life - when he's not asleep!
Hope all is well with you all.

harrigran Wed 17-Apr-19 08:53:58

Good morning from a still grey NE.
Another stay at home day for me as DH has hospital appointment this afternoon.

Mapleleaf Wed 17-Apr-19 08:55:16

Good morning all,

It’s trying to brighten up after a dull, slightly misty start. It is also meant to warm up a bit today, too.

Got some Easter baking to do today and a few other small jobs in the house. Then my plan is to go out into the garden to do some general tidying up - the bigger job of cutting the grass was done at the weekend.

Had a lovely lunch out with my friend yesterday in a cafe not too far away. We were very good and walked there and back, approx 2 miles each way. Enjoyed the exercise!

Those of you away on holiday, I hope you continue to have a lovely time - your descriptions of the places and what you have been doing sound wonderful.

Enjoy today, whatever you plan to do, everyone. 😁

Anniebach Wed 17-Apr-19 08:58:07

Good morning Auntyflo and all x

Derek our weather man forecast a sunny Easter

Work has started on Fred’s garage

Hope everyone has a good day x

Auntieflo Wed 17-Apr-19 09:17:59

Morning Michael, Annie, and all. Lovely bright, sunny day here in Berks. Haircut for me mid morning, then maybe a bit of shopping. Our old shed was re-roofed yesterday, and now looks very smart. I just wish that the landlord of next door’s property would replace the fence. It is slowly getting worse, and a ‘dead’ tree is holding it up.
BlueSapphire, your holiday sounds just the ticket, and I think I would like to do the trip to Spain, via ferry, as Marydoll has just done. envy
Have a good day one and all.

travelsafar Wed 17-Apr-19 09:39:08

Hi all bit of a grey start to the day here today and hazy too. Glad i cut the lawn yesterday and worked in the lovely sunshine in the garden. Planning on getting my summer clothes out of storage, wishful thinking...... Then i want to work in the garden again if the weather cheers up and i also plan to get my watercolours out and do some painting. I borrowed a wonderful book from the library which gives instructions for novice painters. Have some knitting that requires my attention but i will save that for this evening. Have a great day whatever you are doing.

1inamillion Wed 17-Apr-19 10:02:51

Annapops glad you enjoyed Brugge, would like to go back now.

Annie looks good weather then for the work on Fred's garage ☀️

Hymnbook Wed 17-Apr-19 10:50:22

Morning my goodness you all get up very early. I'm not good at getting up or 1st thing in the morning. Sunny day here in Huthwaite. Dentist this afternoon. Hope everyone is well.

Mythbirtthedragon Wed 17-Apr-19 10:55:50

Good morning from south Northumberland, bright and cloudy here. Late start today, journey yesterday was long due to congestion in Cambridge and diversion in Durham plus sitting up talking to my brother til about 2am. Will get down to Druridge bay this afternoon, my brother’s dog’s eyes are following me everywhere; he knows the car goes to the beach. Have a good day

Legs55 Wed 17-Apr-19 11:10:16

Good morning all, misty here in Devon but it's supposed to improve later. Hope so as I want to get out in the garden but it's still a bit chilly. Hope the promised warm weather materialises for Easter

annsixty Wed 17-Apr-19 11:22:50

A late Good Morning from me but just want to say it is a beautiful day here in Stockport, I have just had my coffee outside in lovely sun.
Off to the hospital soon to sit by my H's bed again.
He does not know me now but I can chat to him and manage to get some thickened liquid down him.
Very sad but an inevitable part of life.

Megs36 Wed 17-Apr-19 11:57:50

Annsixty, I don't know your circumstances but from your latest post I would like to say how I sympathise and send love.

Grammaretto Wed 17-Apr-19 13:27:09

Is it Wednesday already! We are on the second part of our trip the length of the country by train. It is incredibly beautiful.
I'm sure you'll manage fine kitty
I hope your new meds work well Marydoll .
Hope everyone's day goes well.

Marilii Wed 17-Apr-19 13:47:16
