Good Morning Everyone,
Its dark but its wet here in Brackley this morning.
Mind you the days are starting to open up with more daylight.
Today, a general stay in clean up , and maybe some banking.

We have had a leaking roof over the weekend and the shed roof is also leaking, but never mind worse things have happened. it can get sorted.
Happy birthday Susan,

I hope every one has a good day.

Good morning from a grey Essex sky. Busy day yesterday at my DSs house as new baby granddaughter had lots of visitors! I did have to go down the pecking order for cuddles but happy just looking at her. I managed to only buy 1 outfit for her yesterday but will stop now!!! Housework and a local shop today. Wishing everyone the best day they can and hoping for thatsunshinexxxx

Who can resist buying baby outfits conor? There are so many gorgeous little things to get these days . I’m sure you’ll get lots and lots of cuddles in the coming weeks .
Belated Congratulations as I think I must’ve missed her arrival smile

Morning all from a sunny north Wales where I’m still a bit discombobulated after yesterday’s news about Mommawolf - just couldn’t get my head around the fact that she was posting on Saturday evening and now we’ve lost her. Life is so unfair at times.

A belated happy St David’s Day to all and happy birthday Susan56 that sounds like a marvellous treat! And a baby soon to arrive oliversnana how lovely - we need cheering news this week!

I’m just pottering this morning and meeting my oldest friend for tea and cake this afternoon- we walked a mile to primary school together at the age of four - those were the days eh!

Hope all with worries have a good day flowers

Morning, folks! Still raining in Argyll. We are used to a lot of rain but we are ready for it to stop for a while. Had I been able to get on with some serious gardening jobs, I'd have been going demented by now so I guess even a broken shoulder can have a positive side 😏. Hey ho.

I am managing to do small amounts of scrappy/arty patchwork, a few minutes at a time on the machine. MrB has been working from home a lot and he actually enjoys chopping onions and other veg. This has been a great help. Yesterday he did the chopping for my signature carrot & tahini soup and the bread machine made some nice bread. Looking forward to lunch already!

Happy Mondays, Good Morningers!

Good morning from a sunny Market Harborough.

I still cannot get over the sad new yesterday of Mommawolf. It was good of Hannah to let us know. I'm quite new to posting on here but her stories were lovely. I used to want to just sit in her warm kitchen and listen to her all day. So very sad.

Sending love and hugs to Gillybob and all who are suffering. Special hugs for Hannah.

Just back from our invigorating dog walk and ready for some hot chocolate.

Popped back in to wish you a very Happy Birthday Susan56🎂.

Good Morning All x.
A lovely morning too. Chilly and a bit of scraping going on first thing I noticed, but sunny and bright. So much so, I changed my bed, got the washing on, started cleaning the windows as the lightness shows up marks etc, then did what I always do---flitted from one job to another without getting one job finished completely, so here I am sitting writing this !

Then on taking my morning pills realised that I only had two days of warfarin, so how that happened I don't know. I've just set-to and ordered said pills so hopefully they'll be delivered on Wednesday. I'm usually on the ball with those if nothing else.

Birthday wishes to Susan56 x, enjoy your time in Liverpool---perhaps DH can visit the massive warship which is in dock this week.
Congratulations to babies born and those who are imminent, always a lovely time if not a slightly anxious one too.

Thoughts to those who have appointments/check-ups etc, Marydoll, Dragonfly and the Gillybob's forthcoming one xx

Thinking of Mommawolf's family too and all the animals who'll be missing her. What a tragedy that was sad

Enjoy these lengthier and lighter days, Spring is on its way.

Back from the hygienist. A good appointment.

I like popping back to catch up with the late morning posts. You seem a tad more upbeat today whywhywhy which is pleasing.

Gosh gillybob 5am! I didn’t know there were two 5 o’clocks in one day....

Will be taking birthday cards over to my stepfather when we go to pick him up. I buy something ‘flat’ to pop in each card - a packet of seeds, a coaster with a funny message, a couple of scratch cards - you get the drift. I only spend a fiver and I like to think the birthday recipient just gets a small sweet surprise!

Morning to everyone. At work but feeling very tired. We were out last night and my DH took bad just before we came home. After an hour and a Call to 111, an ambulance was being sent. 3 hours later it arrived and he then went to hospital. So I didn't get to bed until He is ok, just a call to say he can come home, do DD going to pick him up. Glad your DH has had a better weekend Gillybob, and I am also very said about the news about Mommawolf, its true that you never know what is round the corner!!

Thank you Urmstongran, I do feel a bit better today. I’ve just been out for a 20 minute walk and this is something I am going to try and do each day.x
