Good Morning Everyone,
Its looking a clear and dry start here in Brackley this morning.
Pop off on the buses to Buckingham and Bicester , then get back and watch the cycling.
I noticed yesterday on the race , there was a nice Ariel shot of Nidd Hall , where I have stayed a few times, plus with the world championships in Harrogate in September a chance to see likely spots to watch the racing.

Morning Mick - been waiting here for you to open up!

Looks like we had some rain overnight here on the south coast and it is only 5 degrees at present according to my digital weather station.

We took out another overgrown shrub from the front garden yesterday but still have to tackle the stump. DH will try to dig it out but we may need to get some stump killer for it.

DH is out with his bike club today and I have a pottering day ahead, getting ready for our trip to Essex tomorrow to see DS and family.

Have a good day folks! sunshine

Morning All

It looks as if April is still hanging on here. Sunshine and blustery showers. And decidedly chilly. I hope things are a bit better in Buckinghamshire where DD1 and family are camping.

Another early bird here! Unusual for me to be up so early but I slept like a log last night - a real treat.

Good morning everyone from a dry and bright South Manchester where I can see the Pennine ridge - always a good sign weather-wise.

I’m off over to Lytham for the weekend with my friend to stay at her daughter’s. One of my daughters is joining us there as she lives in Yorkshire. It promises to be fun. My friend’s daughter’s husband (keep up there at the back!) is an architect and apparently has done some amazing work on their house which is the main reason we are going - to have a look.

I hope Saturday is good to us all, whether we have plans or none. x

Good morning Mick and all. There is brilliant sunshine and blue skies in Cheshire. The trees in the woods are that lovely vibrant green of spring against the blue sky. I spotted the wren on the garden wall earlier and have been watching the squirrels to see if they are venturing too close to the nest beneath the balcony.

Going to my sister's for a couple of days, so it will be nice to have company and probably go shopping into Knutsford or Wilmslow.

Have a good day everyone.

Morning Mick and everyone.

Looks quiet bright through the gap in the curtains. I'm still in bed at the moment.
DH going to Twickenham for A v N game. He goes every year with his ex team mates. So a quiet day for me.
Enjoy whatever you xo.

Good morning all, bright and sunny in Leicestershire.
It’s pretty chilly though I hope my sweet peas have survived.

Sainsbury shop and coffee ou this morning and if dry a walk this afternoon. Packing for our trip down south next week.

Good Morning Mick and all. It is damp from overnight rain here on S Welsh coast but we are promised a dry day.
Hospital appointment was positive yesterday, have to wear a boot for another two weeks but must walk without the crutches, not easy! I've had a plate inserted and five screws in my foot.

We had lunch at a N. Trust property on the way home, it was so lovely to see the tulips and bluebells after being housebound for three months.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Good morning from a bitterly cold Aberdeenshire...the sky is clear blue and the sun brilliant but it's more like January. Winter drawers back on for romps in the woods with the mutt today.
Don't think I'll put bedding plants out or tomatoes in the greenhouse this weekend as planned. It's far too chilly.
Have a great day everyone.

Morning Mick and All.

I can report Nfk it is sunny and chilly here in South Bucks. I think it will warm up a tad later today.

Off to the French Market for its annual visit in our riverside Park. I think a crepe with lemon and sugar is in order. 🥞

Glad you are no longer incarcerated lina. My ankle is working again, excellent.

Ginny42 Sat 04-May-19 07:20:50

Goodness 1inamillion that sounds very painful and certainly puts my complaints about hurting my foot and being housebound for a week into some perspective! Glad the news was good yesterday. flowers

Good morning from sunny Colchester. Very cold though.
We managed to get wet on our walk yesterday and rain's forecast again this afternoon when we plan to go on another local history walk.

Good morning, bright but cool in east London. Aiming to go shopping as early as poss to get stuff for the family barbecue on Monday. Off to the tennis club for a couple of hours this afternoon to help out with an open day, hopefully not doing anything too energetic as last night’s match (which we won) was hard. Have a good day.

Good morning from a bright and breezy Birmingham. I’m starting back at Tai Chi this afternoon after a bit of a break, and the family are coming for tea later, so I need to go shopping and do a bit of a tidy up after my two childcare days. Sitting here with the sun shining through my East windows I can see lots of baby fingerprints!

Many thanks NanKate and Ginny

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. I have been missing in action but we are now back from our holiday in Northumberland which was lovely, if a little frenetic. We covered a lot of ground! Nice to be home. Today we can’t wait to see GS and his Ma and Pa; we have missed him sorely. Have a good day folks.

Good Morning from a lovely sunny day here in Fife, it’s a tad chilly but great to see sun again. No plans for today suspect DH will be back out building in garden. Will prob cook and freeze some food. Good news Linamillion. Hope everyone’s day is good for them.

Nannytopsy Sat 04-May-19 08:23:37

Good morning everyone! We are off to Eyebrook reservoir for a short walk and long birdwatch today then lunch out. Glad the weather has improved!

Good morning from a cloudy NE coast. Bright spells and showers forecast for today and it feels quite chilly too.

Well we finally got DD’s garden finished last night . It has been a long hard job, carried out a bit at a time, over 4 weeks but it has been worth it . She and baby girl are absolutely thrilled with the results. All they need now is some nice weather to enjoy it .

A bit of food shopping to do today as my fridge is bare then we have the baby overnight tonight.

So glad your foot is on the mend linamillion you sound like the million dollar grandma with all those screws and plate.

Have a good Saturday everyone x

Good Morning from a bright but chilly Black Country.

Took partner to the train station at 8.00am as he is off to London to see his daughter, and will be back later tomorrow. I couldn't go as I had promised months ago to have 2 DGD's for DD whilst they go to a gig, and this is his DD's only free weekend for a while. They will be over here this afternoon.

So having a relaxing hour, then start on making a Lasagne and changing beds etc.

Looking forward to Monday when my friend who moved to Lincolnshire 18 months ago is coming to stay .

Have a great weekend everyone.

Good morning all.

My bit of North Leicestershire is pretty much the same dragonfly's - looks lovely but its freezing.

A quiet day for me today.

Harris27 Sat 04-May-19 08:39:44

Hello everyone from a chillyNE. Was looking forward to the weekend no serious plans in place but woke early with asthma bad coughing and wheezing think I will take it a bit easy today after long gphard week at work. Wish the weather would warm up doesn't seem to know if it's spring or winter here! Have a good sat all.

Good morning everyone from a sunny Essex by the sea. A few things to do in town, pick up something from the sorting office, no idea what, but it needs a signature. DH off to watch our local football team in their last match of the season later this afternoon.
I shall catch up on tv programmes and make a start on my next jigsaw.
Have a good day everyone.

Good morning all from the Scottish Borders. I've been sitting out in the sunshine with my tea. but came back inside as it's too cold yet
I am so glad you're on the mend 1inamillion and you've finished that garden gilly

I've been waiting for my new laptop to arrive. They say they couldn't find the house which I find odd since it's stood here for 200years and hasn't moved.
