Good morning all. Fairly bright here in Northampton.

Great barbecue yesterday at DS's, nice to be with all the family.

Dentist this morning, which I'm not looking forward to! Then a visit to the post office collection centre to pick up a parcel which they tried to deliver on Friday when I was out.

Good luck with your blood test Mick.

Hope everyone's day goes well.

Good Morning all.
Dry and cloudy with a few patches of blue.
Rain halted my garden work yesterday I might carry on with it today.
Grand dog goes home tonight.

Have a good day everyone 🌸

Good morning everyone from N Bucks.
Exhausted after a lovely birthday party yesterday in Waltham Forest for DGS Flynn who is 3. There must have been twenty to thirty children ranging from 9 (eldest DGS ) to 9 weeks ((littlest DGS) plus their parents-all DD’s hypnobirthing friends, colleagues, neighbours etc etc plus some aunts, uncles and a few grandparents! Lovely to spend the whole afternoon in the open air with singing led by a wonderful couple I have seen there before and of course space to run around, trees and logs to climb over, it was hard to believe we were in London, I bet some children slept soundly last night!
I am now off to Birmingham this morning to take part in a research project into Dementia and plan to meet DD1 for a coffee first.
Wishing you all a pleasant day and hope the blood test goes well, Mick! !

Morning all from a bright North Leicestershire.

Ironing day for me! DD1 is calling in for lunch on her way home from a meeting and then I have a Carer's course this evening.

The networking event went really well yesterday and we felt we spread the word about interacting with the Alzheimer's Society well.

Sounds like a good time was had by all, maw.

Good morning all from a cloudy Glasgow.

Couldn't sleep, so pottering about. I have a GP appointment today, still feeling unwell and my BP is still very high, despite being a good girl! I'm becoming very frustrated, as I still can't drive or go out on my own.

DD got her wedding dress yesterday, I can't believe it!!! We had to cancel a number of previous appointemnts to look at dresses because I was ill. My stress levels were going up by the minute, as DD was totally unphased by the whole business and I knew we were running out of time.
A minimum of ten months to order a wedding dress, it seems that after Brexit (sorry for mentioning on the
Good Morning Thread )it will be even longer!!!
I had visions of trailing round wedding shops, without any results.

Good luck with your tests today, Mick and Maw sounds as if you had a ball!

Happy Monday, everyone.

Morning Mick, owning All from a bright, cloudy corner of Somerset. Routine stuff today then Granny detail this evening. Hope Monday is kind to everyone.

Morning All

Rainy / sunny with scudding clouds here in the north of Norfolk.

I must do something about the state of this house today.

Grammaretto Mon 20-May-19 07:19:05

Good morning Mick and all from the Scottish Borders. Overcast but dry.
Weĺl done your DD Marydoll but please take it easy this week.
What a great party you all had Maw.

I want to find a wedding guest outfit but never get time to shop. I can't do on-line.
Hope you all have a good day.

Pittcity Mon 20-May-19 07:23:26

Good morning from a grey, damp Colchester. Warm though.
Walking Netball this morning.

Ginny42 Mon 20-May-19 07:24:49

Morning all. It's a glorious morning in Cheshire. The wren was singing its heart out around 5.30, a pleasant if noisy start to the day.

Hope all goes well with the tests Mick. Sorry you're still feeling unwell Mary, hope it gets sorted soon. Amazing that your DD found the dress in one day!

Happy day everyone, whatever you're doing.

NanKate Mon 20-May-19 07:27:59

Good morning Mick and All.

Off to dentist for check up, clean and asking for more antibiotics for gum infection which won’t go away.

Your day sounded fab Maw. What a relief for you Mary that your DD has got her wedding dress. So sorry you are still not feeling well hope the doc can sort you out today.

DS sent photos of him and his lovely lady at a Colombian evening in Brighton, they certainly know how to party. 💃🕺

Good morning from the NE coast where we have a fairly bright start but forecast light rain later.
I got loads of jobs done in the garden yesterday but didn’t get round to doing my car as DD arrived with Evie unexpectedly which was lovely so we decided to go out for a late pub lunch instead. Thank goodness she is much better after the nasty reaction to the MMR jabs.

So glad your DD got sorted with her wedding dress Marydoll maybe all the other cancelled appointments weren’t meant to be anyway as this one was always waiting for her. I’m sorry to hear that you are still suffering with high blood pressure and I hope they can get things under control for you soon.

Good luck with your blood tests Mick and anyone else with hospital/GP appointments today I hope they go well.

Glad you had such an enjoyable day Maw .

Did I ever mention that I hate Mondays? (And Tuesdays, wednesdays, thursdays....) off to “that place” then picking up the children from schools at tea time as I have them for 2 overnights this week.

Have a good Monday everyone x

Quite cloudy with some very pale blue in the distance, but temperature wise not too bad. I would call it fresh at the moment! I am off to Whipsnade zoo today with my sister and she is driving. No doubt we will get lost along the way even though we have maps and print outs of the route coutersy of AAroutemaster, but it is all part of the fun when go anywhere together. I have packed up a picnic, and charged up my camera, hoping to get some lovely photos of elephants and penguins, our two favourite animals. Wish us luck with our journey. smile

Good Morning from a very dull Black Country

U3A canal group this morning, a walk along a canal to a local Marina, with some interesting facts along the way.

Need to call Audiology as my right ear hearing aid seems not to be working! So I am only half hearing things smile

Good luck with your blood test Mick. I hope this week sees an easing of your symptoms Marydoll

Harris27 Mon 20-May-19 08:21:13

Good morning all snap my husband has the same this morning! Off to work later and late one for me as we have parents night tonight. Looking forward to next weekend as its a nice long one bank holidays fab!! Weather dull but ok here in NE.

Harris27 Mon 20-May-19 08:21:57

Sorry the snap was for mick ! Diabetes check up .

Sprout Mon 20-May-19 08:24:47

Morning Mick and all. Good luck with blood test Mick. Sad day for me and my family my wonderful H's 2nd year anniversary it's gone by so quickly and after 53yrs of marriage it's hard for everyone. So quiet day with thoughts of all the happy time of which there was many. Sorry to be down today but everyone have a good day whatever you are doing. And those who are going through treatments or feeling unwell keep that chin up.

Greyduster Mon 20-May-19 08:33:25

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. The sun is back this morning in South Yorkshire. And I have a sore throat ☹️. DH has to try and get an emergency appointment with the dentist this morning after his extraction last week. School run this afternoon. Have a good day folks.

Brunette10 Mon 20-May-19 08:34:30

A belated morning from Fife today where it is quite dull but think maybe it will brighten later. Woke at 6am but fell back asleep which is not like me. DH has doc today re his blood tests last week. So glad you DD got her dress Marydoll another thing ticked of to do list. Sprout don't apologise for feeling down esp today you are allowed to. thinking of all those not quite feeling 100% today. Take care.

Urmstongran Mon 20-May-19 08:37:50

Good morning everyone from a bright and mild South Manchester. Husband has routine bloods this morning - he asked for an MOT as not had any check in over 3 years so a good idea.

I’m off to the library later as I love borrowing the MP3 audiobooks - we are off back to Malaga on Wednesday for a month - and they are great for being ‘read to’ on the beach - no need for sunglasses and a book or avoiding the sun on my kindle screen. So portable too, see the size!

ninathenana Mon 20-May-19 08:38:56

Good morning from an overcast Kent. So far we have escaped the rain here.
Taking Bert to the vets this afternoon for yearly booster. Not much else planned.
Have a good day GNrs

harrigran Mon 20-May-19 08:44:08

Good morning, it is overcast but dry.
Grocery shopping this morning as DH's hospital appointment is an evening one today.
Yesterday was a very lazy day, need to get moving around more.
Good luck with GP appointment Marydoll.

MawBroonsback Mon 20-May-19 08:52:47

Sprout you have my sincerest sympathy - these anniversaries inevitably remind us of happier days, arousing such bittersweet memories. It’s so hard for even our nearest and dearest to understand.
Just flowers
