Good Morning Everyone,
Its dark, wet and windy the only way to describe the weather this morning here in Brackley .
Yesterday I did my usual trip by bus to Bicester and Buckingham .
Today , I have prepared a pork curry in the slow cooker , and should get 2 days of meals from it.
Plus get back up to scratch after the break I had.

Good morning Mick and all.
It is very windy, but dry here in South Wales. We have a yellow warning for wind from 3 pm and most of the Christmas Fayres and markets have been cancelled, such a shame.
Hope everyone will have a good Sunday.

Good Morning from a bright Black Country, although it lokks a little windy.

My partner is off on a bike ride shortly with the club he recently joined. It is a Christmas ride, so he has fairy lights on the bike and a Christmas hat over his bike hat! They are stopping off at a local pub for a buffet lunch. I will walk over and join him there.

My DD's school has started a crowd funding page to raise money to rebuild their forest school. Which was burnt down by vandals. Within 24 hours it had raised just over £1000! As DD says, there are more good than bad people in the world.

Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pud for us tonight.

Your video worked Mythbirththedragon lovely!

Hoping all is continuing to progress well with your dear DH gilly Thinking too of EV and anyone else with worries and health problems.

Morning All

Grey and breezy here in Norfolk too. But there are fleeting glimpses of sky.

We need to take the cover off our little boat today to check she’s not full of water. (Sounds silly when she’s up on the bank, but the rainwater fills her up surprisingly quickly if the boatyard didn’t get the cover on soon enough). Hopefully the cover won’t take off while DH is under it!

May today be the day that Mr G snaps out of his nightmare and comes back.

Morning everyone from a dry, grey and very windy north Wales where I’m enjoying the chamberpot of tea in bed!

You’re all having some delicious meals - roast beef, pork curry, lamb tagine......yum! It’s roast chicken for us later which I only do half a dozen times a year, so bit of a treat really and I’m making mince pies (once I shift myself) so will rustle up an apple pie for pud!

Hope good news is coming for those with worries x

Thanks for drawing my attention to Mythbirtthedragon’s video NannyJ. It’s lovely *Mythbirt and so nice to see some boys in a choir.

Good morning Mick and everyone. Today is bright and sunny in Cheshire and the trees are not stirring atm.

I was hesitating writing about my day as I seem to be spending a lot of time with friends who are struggling at the moment. I'm glad I'm well enough to be able to do these things however. I bought a radio for the friend who was admitted to a care home on Friday as she was in a totally empty room and looked so pathetic sitting there. I'm going to call at her house and get a small TV and some books.

This afternoon I'm spending time with another friend whose husband has been admitted into care as his dementia has worsened dramatically.

I will immerse myself in some nice music and start my new novel when I get home. Then finish writing the Christmas cards and tomorrow I'm getting the tree down from the loft.
I must have the house looking festive when my DGS arrives for Christmas.

I know Gilly and dragonfly have worse worries than mine, so sending warm wishes to them and to all who are worried or unwell. Otherwise, have a good day.

Happy Sunday Morning from a Sunny/cloudy/windy/rainy!! West Yorkshire. Going in our local park to walk our son's dog. The dog is going back home today as our son is back from holiday. Then some Christmas card writing and clean the house after our four legged visitor. Love her but it is hard keeping the house clean. At least we have not had rain this week. Enjoy your day everyone!

Good morning from a sunny Essex but strong winds forecast for later! Managed a shop yesterday and bought even more Xmas things. I've forgotten what I've got now so will have to sort it all today. Xmas tree up last night so will finish the decorations today, have 4 boxes to sort throughsmile Hope everyone has a good day xxx

You are such a caring friend Ginny and I’m sure you only hesitate because you don’t want to sound as though you’re blowing your own bugle.

Well I think it needs blowing! You are so kind.
🎺 🎺

It’s good that you’re finding time amongst your good deeds to relax and do something nice for YOU.

Good morning from a bright but very windy NE. It was a very noisy night.
DS and GD1 are visiting this afternoon after Christmas shopping so warming mince and dumplings are on the menu.
Put the Christmas tree up, DH put the lights on and I did the artistic stuff.
Decided to go shopping while Strictly was on, a good move, shop was empty and we got a very good deal on pink Champagne. It was a good price anyway but they had a 25% discount if you bought 6.
Thinking of the gillybobs and hoping progress is being made.

Good morning from a dry Bristol a bit windy and more to come I believe.
Not much on the cards for me today, we had a lovely walk around town yesterday to see the Christmas market, it was so busy we could hardly move, traffic was busy as there were hundreds of motor bikers going around town dressed as Santa Claus for charity.
I hope everyone has a lovely Sunday and as always thoughts for Gillybob

Good afternoon,

I’m late posting as we’ve been away over night and just got back in the last hour. We had a lovely trip on a North Yorkshire Moors steam train which has been decorated on the outside with different coloured lights, they’ve called it “The Northern Lights”. As we passed through the countryside, the woodlands looked so pretty illuminated by the lights from the train, and there were little scenes set out along the route for the children to look out for. All very pretty. The trip was a surprise to me from my DH, and has started Christmas off nicely. Today we drove into Whitby and had a look at the shops and bought a few last minute Christmas gifts. We decided against a walk along the prom as it was a tad breezy!
When we got home and I checked my emails there was one from my brother announcing the arrival of his first grandchild, so that is the icing on the cake for us!

Hope you’ve all had a decent day. Some of those dinners sound scrumptious. I’ll be making spaghetti bolognese later for us - something quick to prepare.

Thinking of gilly and her DH.

Batten down the hatches, everyone, as it sounds as if we are in for a stormy night.
