Good Morning Everyone,
Its grey but dry outside, looks like a mixed day as to weather.
Usual day for me , with Bicester and Buckingham on the cards.
Hopefully there will be a flea market on in Buckingham, as the stallholders tend to be governed by the weather as to how many arrive.
Hot water was fixed yesterday , nice refreshing shower this morning.

Good morning Michael.
Good Morning All.
I have not yet peered out of the window.
In Cheshire East it is cloudy and dry.

Morning! Last Tigers match of the season today - let’s hope we can get back to winning ways! It hasn’t been our best season. Grey and dry would be good without any heavy showers!

Good morning Mick
Woke very early this morning as I've messed with the new Central Heating timer and it came on at 4pm. Hopefully my Son will fix it when he calls round.
Grey sky but dry and quite warm in North East Manchester.
I have my Daughter's Cavalier here this morning, as they have taken Grandson camping to celebrate the end of Sats, her full body wag when she saw me this morning made me laugh.
Gorgeous little thing!

Morning all. It's a bit grey in North Leicestershire.

I'm going back to the hairdresser this morning as she put too much colour in on Thursday and I keep getting a shock when I see me in the mirror. shock

Good Morning all.
Dry and grey on Severnside this morning.
Off out for a dog walk in a bit and then whatever I do today will depend on the weather.
Hope Saturday is a good one for everyone 🌾

Morning all.

A grey start in Kent, we still haven't had the rain they have been forecasting since Thursday.
A day of pottering indoors for me and in his workshop for DH, doing what, I have no idea.
Have a good day everyone.

Good morning all from the Scottish Borders. Cake in the oven for our usual coffee morning.
I'm hosting an open day in my studio later. I wish it wasn't raining even though the garden will love it.
I hope everyone has a happy day.

Morning Mick, morning All from a cloudy corner of Somerset. Quiet day today, Mr C is supposed to rest post hospital procedure yesterday. I’ll abandon him with his book and do a food shop then perhaps catch up with some admin. Hope Saturday is kind to everyone.

Morning Mick and all. A bit nicer this morning sun trying to get through this part of Kent. Dogs got me up early the birds are driving them mad. I like to see them flying around the garden but dogs hate it. Pottering day today. Hope everyone is well enjoy your Saturday what ever you are doing.

Good morning all from a grey Glasgow.

DS1 and DGD coming for lunch, looking forwards to seeing them.

Enjoy your Saturday everyone.

Good morning from sunny Colchester. Warm and dry weekend forecast here.
Quiet day here girding my loins for a pile of smelly laundry when DH returns from a week long fishing trip.

Good Morning all from a dull and damp Fife. What a change! Heating on! Have some shopping to do and some admin work to get done, that's it for today. Hope everyone has a good Saturday despite weather.

Good morning from a rainy Birmingham. Lots of tidying up and floor cleaning today after my two days with my grandchildren, then Tai Chi at lunchtime. I’m going to do my Italian homework this afternoon too, and not leave it until the last minute!
I hope today is a good one for everyone.

Off to meet my sister for coffee then home to potter, read the Saturday paper and generally have a quite day. Will cook roast chicken dinner later.From tomorrow it will be full on with different things going on, think i only have Tuesday as free day. So i am going to make the most of today at home. Happy weekend to one and all.

Good Morning from a rainy Black Country.

It is my youngest DGD's birthday today (I have 4!) she is 8. So going over later with card and present, as she is going bowling with her friends this afternoon.

I think Partner will be watching FA cup this afternoon.

Kitty I have a shock every time I look in the mirror, as I expect an 30 year old to look back smile

Wishing Mr Corner a speedy recovery.

Pleased you have your hot water back *Mick(

Have a good Saturday everyone.

Good morning from a misty NE after some overnight rain.
A quiet morning planned then off to visit sister for coffee and cake.
DH has a day off from his treatment today.

Nannyfaraway Sat 18-May-19 08:22:46

Good morning everyone from a dull and chilly Wales. Off to work shortly.

Good morning every one, a rather dismal start to the day today, but the rain overnight has refreshed the garden thank goodness. The dentist decided that we leave my sons' teeth as they are, there are two which are badly decayed, but she feels that the hassle to take them out and the possible pain afterwards is not worth it, so leave them until it is impossible not to. The fear of heart failure is always there. Anyway, enough of him, I think I am o.k. one ache just takes the place of another recently but I can still take a walk if I feel like it, and talk to friends. Take care, and enjoy your days.

Good morning, Michael and all GNs from a grey South Yorkshire. I think we are expecting rain. Glad you have hot water again Mick. GS has been here overnight and is just beginning to stir himself. I have no idea what we will do today except bake a cake and have lunch out, and maybe okay some games. He’ll be bored stiff by the time he goes home 😊! Hope Mr C has a nice recuperative day, Corner.
It’s always hard to get men to sit still, I find. Have a good day folks.

NanKate Sat 18-May-19 08:39:00

Morning Mick and All.

Tiny bit of sunlight coming through the clouds in S Bucks.

DH returns after a few days away so I must scrabble around and get all the little jobs done on my To Do List, which I had intended to do whilst he was away. I’ve been too busy going out and meeting friends 🤫

Hope the hairdresser can sort you out Kitty.

Greyjoy1953 Sat 18-May-19 08:43:00

Good morning all, my first post on here, glad to read your hot water back up and running Mick nothing worse than no hot water. Just having my first cup of mint green tea than off to wander around with my little dog, cant call it a walk anymore as he is quite old and just strolls along. We start off with him in front but after about 10 mins he is lagging behind. Still he’s still a joy. Have a good day all.

Good morning from a rather grey and damp NE coast.

Typical that today is Saturday and the weather forecast is for drizzle .

So glad to hear you got your hot water sorted Mick .

Nothing much planned for today except for a bit of shopping and some housework .

A warm welcome to Gransnet and the Good Morning thread Greyjoy1953 smile

Have a good day everyone x

Good morning everyone from a grey and damp Northampton.

Still no hot water, waiting to hear from British Gas. They are ordering me a new hot water tank, then arranging a date for installation. Am managing with boiling kettles, and the occasional visit to DS's for a shower. Felt so cold last night I put the gas fire on.

Nannytopsy, last match of the season for Northampton Saints too! Playing Exeter away and hope to get a good result to be in the top four and in the play-offs. If we lose, have to hope that Wasps beat Quins.

DD picking me up this morning to take me out for lunch, then home in time to watch the rugby on tv.

About to tackle the Telegraph cryptic crossword.

Hope everyone has a good day.
