Good Morning Everyone,
Its dry but its grey here in Brackley this morning.
A quiet day for me , at the moment out of interest I am trying to mix my meals as to having meat and then also some vegan type ready made ones.
Did my usual yesterday , and got the maps I wanted of the flea market ,and noticed something which could start to be a money making trend .
Japanese and Chinese items are getting trendy as to purchase, whilst on the stall where I buy the maps a far eastern person was also further down the stall , looking at this vase , and the dealer spotting it went and dealt with it she may have been Offred a good price for it.

Morning Mick, morning All. It’s a grey and very windy start in our corner of Somerset. Not sure what’s on the agenda here today, disturbed night so a bit weary, just a bit of sorting ‘stuff’ for me I think. Hope Sunday is kind to everyone.

NanKate Sun 26-May-19 06:31:09

Morning Mick and All to follow.

Sunny coming through the clouds in S Bucks.

Off for 6 days to help with the DGSs 😳 No more lying in bed with a cuppa and my IPad in the mornings.

I too enjoy some vegan food especially mushroom risotto Mick.

Have a good day folks.

And morning Corner.

Good Morning Mick cornergran and everyone.
Dry and dull here but feels warm enough.
I’m feeling tired and weary after my garden work yesterday. I finished building an arch and made some willow star shapes for the sides and top. Take things easy today would be a good idea I think.

Hope you enjoy your Sunday plans 🌸

Morning all from an overcast North Leicestershire.

We are off to the seaside for a few days and I'm really looking forward to it. I think the lovely (12 year old!!!) Dentist sorted my tooth at least for the time being. She even invited dh in to talk it through with him!!!

Good luck, kate!! Take it easy corner and Beechnut, it is Sunday after all.

Your flea market sounds better than ours, Mick, I never find anything interesting when I go.

Morning Mick and everyone. I'm sitting in bed with a cuppa and toast watching the rain pour down the windows and I could be here for some time! Fortunately, I'm out to friends this afternoon and for dinner this evening. Glad you got your tooth fixed in time Kitty. Have a good holiday!

Think I'll just relax with my novel for while. Enjoy your day, whatever the weather where you are.

cornergran Sun 26-May-19 07:16:26

Good tooth news kitty, enjoy your holiday, hope it’s paddling weather smile.

Good morning all from the Scottish Borders. I hope for a brighter day as Gala day was wet and cold yesterday.
Interesting about the vase Mick.
Chinese collectors are looking out for old Chinese pots since one very valuable one was put up for auction . It had been used as an umbrella stand for centuries.

Marydoll Sun 26-May-19 07:36:09

Good morning all from a dreary, wet Glasgow.

A nice quite day for me. I'm going to try and get to church this morning with DH, I will see how I feel once I'm up and about.
After that, a quite day of reading the papers and pottering about.
I have decided to do a cull of my many, (and there are many) pairs of shoes. I can no longer wear them, due to my RA, but cannot bear to part with them! 😥 Silly, I know.

Enjoy your holiday, Kitty and I'm glad you managed to get something done with your tooth.
Good luck, Kate! 😀

Enjoy your Sunday, everyone.

Good morning all from a very cloudy but dry Northampton. Planning a quiet day today with perhaps a trip to the garden centre for yet more compost. Glad to hear you got your tooth fixed Kitty. Take it easy Cornergran and good luck NanKate.

Good Morning everyone from a wet Fife. Dull and overcast but I think it's to clear. Bought and wrote DD birthday card as it's her birthday whilst on holiday can I find it - no I can't. Had the house upside down, so very frustrating and should I worry! Anyway glad your tooth is fixed Kitty for your hols, have a good time. Hope your clear out is successful Marydoll smile Hope today is good for everyone.

Morning Mick and all. Strange morning here in Kent it's not sure whether it wants to shine or rain so we will see as day goes on. The dogs were awake really early again as the birds making their Dawn chorus early. Glad to hear tooth problem sorted. And let's hope that vase wasn't the real deal Mick. Hope you all have a good day whether resting or off on a trip enjoy.

Good morning from sunny Colchester. Mixed bag of weather forecast today. I will be covered up as I caught a bit too much sun at yesterday's airshow. A lot of the pilots were "12 year olds" too kitty.
BBQ to continue DGS3 birthday celebrations this afternoon.

EllanVannin Sun 26-May-19 08:21:24

Good morning All x
Obviously been a downpour during the night and also another as I got up an hour or so ago. Dull damp and miserable looking but I'm not going anywhere.

I love all things Oriental Mick and have a few knick-knacks including a large old Satsuma pot/vase with twigs in it, bought many years ago at an antique fair. Also some bamboo black lacquered plaques.
Come to think of it it's not unlike a flea-market here smile

Those off for the day, enjoy----those at home have a good day and take care everyone.

Morning all and glad to hear you are painfree Kitty.
It is very overcast here this morning but i dont mind, i ended up with a headache yesterday after being outside most of the day.
I need to put some new plants in the garden and cut the grass so will welcome the coolness.
I have two days at home now, a very welcome break from my hectic week. I plan to sort out the garden today and then tomorrow i have to move my bed as i have a workman coming to investigate a damp patch on the sloping ceiling right above my bed and he needs to be able to use his step stool to get to it. Nice to hear Marydoll attempting to get to church, sadly none of us so far other than her is planning that. Gone are the days of Sunday being a day of rest. smileHave a nice day what ever you are doing.

Morning all from an overcast South Notts. Will go out for a drive later, then the weekly shop.
Recovering from last nights celebrations at my sister's 40th wedding anniversary party.
All things Oriental are all the rage at the moment, Mick, with so many people also wanting to visit Japan.
Hope all is well with everyone.

Good morning from a rainy NE.
Was going to get some exercise yesterday but DH was under the weather and my back was playing up, watched Hatton Garden in one sitting. What a bunch of cheeky old men.
No word from family to say whether they arrived at their holiday venue in Scotland, there was some query about travelling yesterday because of poor weather conditions.

Alygran Sun 26-May-19 08:34:27

Good morning from a very wet High Peak. Went with DD2 to the garden centre for plants yesterday so hope it dries up and we can get them in. Not sure what else today will bring.
Hope you all have a good day.

Auntieflo Sun 26-May-19 08:36:20

Morning Michael, Annie, to come, and all GN’s. It is dull here this morning, but no rain, so far. Church a bit later, in my new yellow Hotter shoes, then our DS2, DIL and GS are visiting, on the way home from a wedding. Lovely. Going into the garden in a minute, to see if the slugs have left my tomato plants alone 🤞. Last night I had a sore gum around a back tooth, and it’s still niggling now, so a couple of paracetamol I think is in order.
Enjoy your Sunday everyone.

aggie Sun 26-May-19 08:38:46

Morning all , bit wet here too , clothes left out last night will not do for walking up to Mass

aggie Sun 26-May-19 08:40:14

Mushroom risotto made with barley ....yum

Greyduster Sun 26-May-19 08:48:38

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. Dull here in South Yorkshire but dry so far. We are both feeling guilty for not turning out for junior football, but we walked yesterday and this morning everything hurts - for me anyway! Kitty have a good holiday. NanKate don’t let those boys get top side of you😉! Alygran hope you get your gardening done! Have a good day everyone.

Lins1066 Sun 26-May-19 08:48:54

Good Morning all. It had just started to rain with us on the S Welsh coast.
A quiet day in store reading the papers this morning and then with DH watching the Grand Prix later.
Homemade fish pie later.

Have a good day everyone.

Good morning from a cloudy Birmingham. I’m going to have a book and cd/dvd cull this morning. In fact, I’m thinking of culling the lot! I love reading, but there are only so many books I want to keep, and they take up so much room.
I’m going to my daughter’s later. She and her partner are attempting to toilet train their two and a half year old daughter- apparently it hasn’t been a roaring success.
