Good Morning Everyone,
Its a dull grey start here in Brackley with mist, quiet day for me.
Some housework, and tidy up.

Morning Mick and everyone.

It's a nice start to the day here on the south coast with a clear sky and the sun coming up. Should dry my laundry easily enough.

The problems with my teeth continue with one breaking off yesterday as I ate some strawberries. So I shall need another dental appointment today if I can get one. Hey ho.

Hope the day is kind to us all. sunshine

Good morning Mick and everyone.
Dull and grey in Northampton as well.
Yoga this morning followed by coffee and chat; and this afternoon I really must cut the grass.
Hope everyone's day goes well.

Morning Mick and everyone. We're back to bright blue skies here in Cheshire. I was away over the weekend but gather from my neighbours it was a horrid here.

I'm excited to find that a pair of wrens are nesting under the balcony. I saw one dart and wasn't even sure that it was a bird, but it was too early in the afternoon for it to be a bat. Then a neighbour told me he'd watched them build the nest. One actually popped up through a very narrow gap in the fence. I'm so pleased you'd think I'd found gold!

Good Morning from a much brighter Black Country.

We had a lovely family get together yesterday, to say farewell to my Niece, as she flies off to work in Brisbane for 18 months!

Walking for Health walk this morning, then I must cut the grass too this afternoon.

Blimey Gaga that was one hard strawberry! Hope you can get an appointment quickly.

Have a good day everyone.

Morning all from a misty North Leicestershire.

We have a wren nesting in the ivy on the wall at the bottom of the garden. I feel as though I've found gold too, ginny.

Early good morning for me, the sun is shining and I am off out to lunch later, thanks again to a kind friend driving me. Don't envy you your trip to the dentist Gagagran, I avoid mine if I can, and what a delight for you with the wrens Ginny49, they are so small and quick it is difficult to know if they are there or not. Take care everyone and enjoy your day if you can.

Good morning Mick and all from the Scottish Borders.
We had such a hot and sunny day yesterday we're being punished with the haar today.
I've seen wrens darting about too Ginny and Kitty but have never found their nest. I'll need to keep watch.😉

Good morning Mick and all from Kent, overcast here. I’m hoping to finish off some work, and clean the kitchen. An exciting day for me smile

Gagagran I hope you get a dentist appointment.

Have a great day all!

Morning all.

"Hot sunny day" I've forgotten what that's like Grammaretto I've had the heating on the past two days.
Kent seems a little warmer today but the skies are grey.
Envious of people with nesting birds. We have two boxes that DH made and neither has ever been occupied.
I don't know what my day will bring, I hope yours brings you joy.

NanKate Mon 29-Apr-19 07:07:53

Morning Mick and All.

Back home from our hols most things packed away now just need to refill the fridge.

We have a lovely little bird box which has housed wrens over the years. We saw a couple of wrens check it out a week or so back but we suspect it didn’t meet there exacting standards 😏

Going to a friend’s son’s funeral today I hope I can hold it together. I am far too emotional.

If you are reading this thread Marydoll we are missing you. 💐

Good Morning all. Overcast here on S Welsh coast and the wind has died down.
Hope you get an appointment at the dentist Gaga, DH is going tomorrow.

Have a good day all.

Good morning everyone from Malaga. As it’s Monday it means itks my ladies wine afternoon at 2pm. Yippee! 6 of us again today but 2 different ladies from last week. Only 3 of the ladies are ex pats - the rest of us dip in and out when we’re over.

Hope Monday is kind to us all whatever plans we have, or none. x

Good morning all, sunny at the moment in Lancashire. Reading group at the local library for me today.
The birds in my garden love the RSPB fat balls, more expensive but worth it. I've only seen a wren once though.
Good luck with the dentist Gaga.
Have a good day everyone.

gillybob Mon 29-Apr-19 07:36:20

A bit of a grey start here on the NE coast. A bit like my Monday morning mood.

Off to “that place” in about an hours time and the thought is making me feel physically sick..... picking the 3 older DGC up from school today then I will have them until Wednesday tea time.

Missing Marydoll too. Hope she is back with us soon.

Have a good day everyone x

Brunette10 Mon 29-Apr-19 07:37:56

Good Morning from an overcast Fife. Off with DD today for a Spa Day. My birthday present from DD so looking forward to it. Thinking of you Marydoll. Hope today is good for everyone.

Sar53 Mon 29-Apr-19 08:04:47

Good morning everyone from a dull, grey Kent. I'm spending a few days with DD2 and two DGD'S. DD has just taken DGD1 to school, DGD2 and I are watching children's tv, naughty nanny !!! Food shopping later.
Have a good day everyone.

Good morning All x
A lovely sunny morning so far, so that calls for some washing to be done. Must also run the hoover over the place too it gives you more incentive to do something when the weather's bright, otherwise nothing gets done.
Blimey, I can see a cobweb ! Feather duster at the ready.

Hope there is improvement with those who are unwell and I really feel for gillybob and her " place ", I can't think of a worse feeling.sad

Take care everyone and enjoy the day-----if you can.

harrigran Mon 29-Apr-19 08:08:35

Good morning from an overcast NE. No plans for today as DH has hospital appointment for a couple of hours in the middle of the day.
Thinking of you Marydoll.

Harris27 Mon 29-Apr-19 08:09:01

Pittcity Mon 29-Apr-19 08:10:28

Good morning from Colchester where the mist has cleared and it is now bright but overcast. Heating is bumping on morning and evening to take the chill off.
Walking Netball this morning followed by book club and coffee.

Sprout Mon 29-Apr-19 08:26:53

Morning all. Dull day in this part of Kent. Taken dogs for walks now having that first cuppa lovely. Have a good day everyone.

aggie Mon 29-Apr-19 08:48:04

Anniebach Mon 29-Apr-19 08:56:48

Good morning from a dull start in Perthshire.

Putting up with a niggling right shoulder hoping it doesn’t become any worse. Calcific tendonitis flares up in both shoulders occasionally, fingers crossed the left one doesn’t start too. A day of resting said shoulder hoping that does the trick.

Hope things are improving for you Marydoll

Have a pleasant day hopefully all.
