Good Morning Everyone,
Its a dull grey start here in Brackley this morning , the days seem to be drawing in each week.
I am doing my usual bus trips , plus close to where I live we have the towns annual fair, so I will be hearing some of the noise in the evenings.

Good Morning all.
There are grey clouds out there 🌫
I’m going to take myself off to Cribbs Causeway today and have a look around the shops. Then probably fall asleep in the chair when I return home.

Take care everyone 💐

Good morning Mick, and all to come. Clear skies here in Northampton, but weather forecast says cloudy and humid later.

Made a good start yesterday on clearing the filing cabinet of donkeys years old paperwork. Late DH would never hear of getting rid of stuff, everything had to be kept, so it was bulging. I have already filled two large bags with shreddings.

Busy day today: dentist this morning to have my new permanent crown fitted (and pay the large bill!); ballet after lunch, then hallelujah! rugby starts again tonight. So down to the Saints ground where we are playing a friendly against Leinster. I shall meet DD and DSIL there. Thinking of treating myself to some new kit this season, so may go down early and have a look in the club shop.

Hope today goes well. Especially thinking of those who have health problems.

Morning everyone.

I think we are in for another pleasant day in Kent. Yesterdays rain didn't appear and the sun shone now and then.
Eye clinic this morning again I know it's for the best, but it is tedious.
I hope you all enjoy what your doing today.
Best wishes to anyone feeling poorly.

Morning Mick, morning all.

North Leicestershire is quite bright this morning. I have a gp appointment first thing then Sainsbury's. After lunch I am doing the school run in Derby.

Our cleaner comes on Thursdays so the house will be sparkly when I get home.

Hoping to hear from gilly.

Enjoy your days everyone.

Morning nina.

Good morning everyone from Malaga where it’s not sunny!

The forecast is for rain tomorrow and Saturday so I expect it might be a dullish day today. Never mind, I did get to the beach for the afternoon yesterday!

I do hope gillybob and mrgillybob are alright.

Well done you BlueSapphire doing all your decluttering! Bet you feel lighter somehow getting rid of so much accumulated stuff.

Hope Thursday is good to us all whether we have plans or none. x

Good morning Mick and all from a damp Glasgow. The weather hasn't been too nice here and I'm so cold!

Trying to have a gentle day, as I'm feeling a bit rotten. Of course that never happens in our house! grin

Best wishes for anyone with medical appointments today. BlueSapphire, paying the bill will be more painful than the treatment itself!

Looking forward to hearing from Gilly.

Enjoy your day, whatever your plans.

Good morning from a grey but dry NE.
This is the third day our car is at the garage, courtesy car is a good one but very low with bucket seats and my back does not like it.
Successful meeting with the bedroom designer, GD was happy with the plans.
Thinking about gilly.

Morning from a dull Fife, it's been raining through the night and still wet. Away today for the day so have an early start. DGS's yesterday kept us on our toes. Hope everyone has a good day.

Good morning from sunny Leicestershire.

Discovered yesterday that it was the antibiotics the doctor gave me at the hospital which were making me so ill. My lovely GP sorted me out and gave me some new ones, went to bed at 8 and now feeling well enough to meet friends for coffee.

NanKate Thu 12-Sep-19 07:11:25

Morning Mick Kitty and All.

Looks like a pleasant day here in South Bucks.

Met an old friend yesterday for lunch. We hadn’t seen each other for about 4 years. We started chatting over lunch at 12.30 and found ourselves still talking away at 3.30 and we still didn’t manage to catch up completely with each other’s news. I’m surprised we weren’t turfed out.

Off for my annual check at the Doctors. I hope I pass muster.

Good morning all from the Scottish Borders. Getting cooler but still green. I know frost makes the leaves drop but what changes them to autumn colours?
Our German volunteer was "kidnapped" by the community group who are restoring an old building. It's like an episode of the Archers around here.
He's happy but I've lost my assistant!
I hope you all have a good day.

Morning Mick, morning All from a cloudy corner of Somerset. A bit of sorting this morning then off for lunch and a wander along our rapidly shrinking shops in the High Street before a, hopefully small, supermarket shop. Hope Thursday is kind to everyone.

NannyJan53 Thu 12-Sep-19 07:35:07

Good Morning from a bright Black Country, but with that Autumnal feel. I love this time of year!

Spent a lovely day with Mum and had lunch in Wolverhampton. It was lovely and sunny. Thank you everyone for your warm wishes on the loss of my Aunt.

Today, I am back over to Mums and we are going for lunch in a pub to see if their room will be suitable for her 90th next January.

Not sunny in Malaga Urmston? We usually go this time of year and the last 2 years it has been very hot well into October. This year though we are going to Croatia smile in just over a week.

Hoping all is well with gillybob and we hear from her today.

Have a good day everyone.

Marydoll Thu 12-Sep-19 07:38:05

Beechnut, I thought you were going to the seaside, until I looked it up! grin

Urmstongran Thu 12-Sep-19 07:41:16

I know NannyJan! It is unusual for September. That said, the sun is peeping out but when I went to the front door, there are big black clouds over the mountains.... I shall just look out to sea then from my balcony. It’s like having two weather fronts!

Susan56 Thu 12-Sep-19 07:47:24

Good morning from Shropshire.Another dull start but looks like it will be sunny later.
A quiet morning hopefully then school pick up later.Had forgotten the horror of parking near the school.We are going to set off early,park in a nearby car park then walk down to the school😩
Glad you are feeling better dragonfly and hope you start to feel better too Marydoll.
Thinking of gilly and hope we hear from her later.

Good Morning Mick and all from a gloomy S Welsh coast.
DH going to work on the archive at a local NT property this morning. Our cleaner comes on Thursdays, she's a nice girl.
Not feeling great today so will take it easier.
Saw DS last night, he and the RNLI group are already talking about doing another cycle ride next year - for the rare form of cancer that they have just raised money for.
Hope the gillys are ok and wishing everyone a pleasant day.

Beechnut Thu 12-Sep-19 07:56:41

😂😂Marydoll Cribbs you weren’t entirely wrong as there has been a fake beach there over the summertime.

Auntieflo Thu 12-Sep-19 07:57:31

Good morning Michael, Annie and all to come.
Like everyone else, I am waiting to hear from Mr and Mrs Gillybob . No news is good news!
Dragonfly well done your Dr for sorting you out, and go and enjoy that coffee with friends.
It's not like you Marydoll to fee a bit down in the dumps. Is it the antibiotics again? and you made me giggle about Cribbs Causeway.
I've got the collywobbles myself, as I have the dates for my Pre-op, and also the op. itself. So I have had to cancel/rearrange dentist, hairdresser appointments, but the main thing, I am due to take delivery of our new car almost on the same day.
All will be well, and all will be well.
Have a good day one and all.

Marydoll Thu 12-Sep-19 08:03:36

Thanks Auntieflo for thinking of me. I know it's not like me and I have to admit to wallowing a bit! grin

The antibiotics are as Urmstongran said, industrial strength They are making feel awful on top of the other meds, which also already make me feel yukky!
The good news is the they are doing their job, I can now get one shoe on. grin Hopalong Marydoll, that's me!

I shall give myself a big shake and do some baking, that's my go to therapy.

Marydoll Thu 12-Sep-19 08:06:48

Oh *Auntieflo, that's what always happens. I cancelled appointments next week, as I was supposed to have my angiogram tomorrow, and was told I may have to get things done, now it's been postponed!!!

It's all the things you have to deal with before going into hospital that are more stressful than the actual procedure itself! Best wishes for your op. flowers

Good morning from the NE coast where the sun is just starting to peep out from behind the low clouds.

Well first of all I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone for all their good wishes yesterday and again this morning. I did eventually get to read yesterday’s thread but it was too late to post.

DH had his appointment with the consultant who was still unable to offer a definite date for his operation . Apparently he is only one of a less than a handful of surgeons in the country able to perform this particular kind of laser surgery (my DH has had extensive pelvic surgery in the past) . He assured us that it was on his urgent list (which he has been saying since just after Christmas) . He has given DH a course of antibiotics that he needs to take ready for surgery (no infection just a precaution) and he arranged for 2 small procedures that he has had done a few times before to alleviate some of the pain and pressure. Admit to feeling quite disappointed that we didn’t get a date for surgery and feel like we have been left hanging yet again. Can’t really make any plans for anything, not that we do very much but you know what I mean.....

He had a bit of a rotten night on Tuesday night (I had little Evie overnight too) and I ended up not getting into “that bleedin’ place” until almost lunch time.

Anyway to make things worse I have twisted my back which is making me feel sick with pain. Trying hard to keep quiet about it as don’t want to cause any more fuss.

Off to “that place” in about 20 minutes for another fun packed day. Thank goodness it’s Thursday .

To all those on holiday or getting ready to go on holiday I hope you have a wonderful time and to those feeling poorly or off colour I hope you feel better soon.

Deepest apologies for my miserable post, I will feel brighter tomorrow I’m sure . Xx

Good morning. Dull and grey again in North Yorkshire today.
Got my new car yesterday. It’s an automatic and has a proper handbrake so will take a bit of getting used to. Pleased with it though.
Off to make coffee for our parents group this morning then perhaps some gardening if it brightens up.
Sorry to hear about all you poorly people. Hope everyone is on the mend soon.
Hoping we hear from Gilly soon.
Have a good day everyone.
