I'm sure you'll manage fine kitty

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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. 😁

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

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.

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

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. 🦖🦕

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

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.
