Good Morning Everyone,
Its yet another bright blue sky this morning over Brackley .
Its feels strange because its so quite.
Today, await delivery of the hair trimmer, which is n the hands of Royal Mail so can expect soon.
Despite being an early riser , a routine I have had a job to shake off , thanks to being used to getting up early , when I was n full time work.

Good morning from a bright North Leicestershire.

Many happy returns Marydoll, I hope you have a fabulous day.

Nice to see you gilly please keep us up to date.

Really exciting day at Lester Towers today. A Sainsbury's delivery this afternoon and this morning we have to record a birthday message for dgd3's birthday. DH is talking party hats and balloons. shock

He has also started selling stuff on Ebay and up to now has sold a 1937 typewriter and 2 blanket boxes - I aim to keep moving just to be on the safe side grin

Good luck today gillybob πŸ€
Same old ... oh, painter is dropping paint off before starting on Monday. At last, the insurance has paid off for making good the subsidence. The saga has been going on for over 6 years... a long haul, but the house is being entirely redecorated for β€œfree”.

Good morning Mick and all from a bright sunny morning in Cheshire. The frost as low as the cars is swiftly disappearing in the sunlight. The trees are absolutely still in the wood. The horse chestnuts festooned with candles. Such a lovely start to the day.

Happy birthday Marydoll. Enjoy your day, Do your maths students get the day off lessons? smile

Thursday has come round so quickly, so will be out clapping for the brave people at the forefront of keeping the country going.

I hesitate to say 'same old same old' as I'm pleased to be safe and well doing whatever I choose. Take care all. flowers for all.

There’s nothing to worry about Kitty I think you are in for the long haul πŸ˜‰

Good morning all from sunny West Berkshire .

Weekly highlight is the shopping trip to Waitrose straight after the vulnerable slot this morning.

Other excitement includes moving stuff from the garage into the new shed that my husband and son erected over the weekend.

Happy birthday Marydoll , enjoy your day .

Good luck with your hair trimmer Mick . Have you used one before ?
My husband bought one in John Lewis on the Saturday before lockdown in anticipation. He couldn’t do his own and my son has become the resident barbour.

There seems to be more traffic going past this morning, folk off to work I guess ?

Have a good day

Meat box due today, it’s always great quality from local farmers. Only other thing planned is to go to the village of my childhood - 20 mins drive - and take a nostalgic stroll around it’s lanes.
Wishing all a happy, healthy day πŸ¦‹

Good morning everyone from a cloudy and cold Inverness.

Happy Birthday marydoll hope you have a very lovely day ! πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰β€οΈπŸ›πŸŽ€πŸ’

Just doing the same as usual again today πŸ˜‚ an online exercise class, some gardening and a local walk through the woods .. I’m trying to make the most of it though !

Hope all GNs have a good day and find something to enjoy.

Good morning from a sunny Manchester. Happy birthday*Marydoll*πŸŽ‰πŸΈπŸ’. Hope you have a better day Gilly Mr manc coloured my hair yesterday. Gave us a good giggle. I think he thought he was painting the fence, not touching up my roots! Feels much better anyway. A walk today to post a friend's birthday card. We'll do about 3-5 miles. As we can't go to the gym, this is our preferred way of exercise for now. Don't know what we keep finding to talk about! Have a good day everyone. (((hugs))) to those that need one,flowers for those with extra worries and wobbles.

gillybob Thu 14-May-20 07:28:48

Nothing new to report to be honest but at the risk of upsetting a certain someone’s very delicate disposition .....the morons at Barclays still haven’t got their act together, despite banking with them for over 26 years. I know I’m not the only one as there are thousands of us left out in the cold. So much for loyalty. Another day of being on hold and fobbed off . angry

MawB Thu 14-May-20 07:32:23

Good morning all and a Very Happy Birthday to Marydoll !

I hope you have a lovely day (given the circumstances!) but can still enjoy the love of your dear ones around you to whom you mean so much xx

Gingster Thu 14-May-20 07:38:41

Sunny Suffolk NannyMcDee? It’s grey and cloudy here on the Suffolk coast. Send those blue skies our way please.

Good morning all.

Happy birthday MARYDOLL 🌺

We went to the forest yesterday and the rhodedendruns were out in full blowsy bloom. Well some of them were. Lots more to come. So beautiful. ! Very quiet and peaceful there, only saw another couple and a man with 2 children. Car park still closed.

My elderly SIS had to have her cat put to sleep yesterday and she’s so sad. She’s always had cats and she has another old girl with only 3 legs and terribly over weight, so I don’t think she’ll be long for this world. I fear a depression coming on. 😒. I’ll send flowers πŸ’

A walk along the beach today and a bit of shopping. I’ve lost motivation for gardening and housework. The novelty has worn off. πŸ˜‚. Kind thoughts to all 🌈

cornergran Thu 14-May-20 07:41:06

Morning Mick, morning All. Blue skies over our corner of Somerset. Off for a walk before beginning to haul the units back into place against the newly painted wall. Let’s hope the wall remains pristine or heads will roll grin.

Wishing you the happiest birthday marydoll. πŸŽˆπŸŽ‚πŸΎ

A special hug for gilly and anyone else finding life hard, be gentle with yourselves everyone in these strange times.

Pantglas2 Thu 14-May-20 07:41:47

What a glorious morning for Marydoll birthday πŸŽ‚!

Got my big girls nickas on to do the fortnightly shop later this morning and I’m hoping to pick up fishnchips on the way home for a late lunch!

Must dash to the Maths class - there are last minute things to sort........

Good morning from sunny but chilly Colchester. Heating back on.
Stocking up at Lidl, Amazon delivery and family chat while doing an online quiz today.

Happy Birthday Marydoll πŸ₯³
