Morning Mick and all who follow from a dry and soon to be sunny ☀️ Spain where I’m up and excited to be going on another town hall trip to the beach 🏖. Not sure where we’ll end up but I’ll be sure to wave 👋 at Urmstongran if we’re at her neck of the woods 👍

Hope everyone has a good day, those not feeling clever and good news for Gillybob x

Good Morning everyone. Oh dear, the sky is full of grey cloud and it’s wetter than a wet thing on Severnside.

I got most of the stumps out yesterday and still have a bit more to do. I knew when to stop.

I day inside today and I will sort through the craft stash my daughter gave me. I had a quick look yesterday and there are some nice pieces of paper 😃.

Enjoy the beach Pant and hope you all have the best day you can ☔️🌸

I’ve had to put the lights on this morning.

Good morning all from a very wet Glasgow.

I'm off out early to day as I am going into the day ward for my second dose of the new treatment. It is changing from an infusion to an injection and a slightly smaller dose to see if the side effects are less.
I will have to stay and be monitored for side effects, given my past history. Fingers crossed.

Wishing everyone a pleasant day and as always thinking of all our friends who are struggling. 💐

Morning al from a wet E Kent. Blessed rain, so nice. I know others moan, but goodness! This is probably the second shower we’ve had this month.
Marydoll, you’ll much be in my thoughts for your injection. So hope it goes well. flowers
Have a good day, be kind to yourselves.

Good morning, what a sad sight, a small herd of New Forest ponies with the rain running off them. Yesterday when I looked out, I saw a mother woodpecker feeding her two full size chicks. I really need to set up a CCTV camera.

Thank you for the compliments about Jessica, our vintage MG, yesterday. We had a lovely drive through dappled sunshine roads.

Morning everyone from a damp south Cornwall, but I'm really glad of the rain for my allotment! Lovely family barbecue yesterday. Daughter in law always cooks halloumi which I then completely forget about till the next time she does it. It's delicious! Small grandson was given lots of dinosaurs for his 3rd birthday and took them all to bed. So sweet. Today a visit from his 4 year old sister. We'll watch Peppa Pig and make playdough ha ha. I wish you all the best day you can have.

Good morning Mick and all his followers.
It hasn’t begun to rain yet in Suffolk but it is forecast. I shall finish the ironing this morning then sew this afternoon I think.
Good luck today * Marydoll & Gillybob* and I hope the day is kind to everyone.

Puzzler61 Mon 27-Jul-20 07:01:27

Good Luck with today Marydoll 💓
Fingers crossed it all goes well. Give yourself lots of time to recuperate in the following days. 💐

Puzzler61 Mon 27-Jul-20 07:06:05

MellowYellow you have the Best Plan for this wet day 😁
- Peppa Pig, making play dough and the lively company and chatter of a little 4 year old.

I smiled at your GS sharing his bed with the dinosaurs.
3 and 4 are such lovely ages. Enjoy. 🐒

Good morning all. A grey start here in Essex. Like GrandMattie we are pleased to see rain here in the south east corner.

We are heading up to our cottage by the sea in Suffolk today for all of August. Having family staying in family bubbles and maybe getting all together for a family bar b q at the end of the month as my 70th birthday celebrations had to be cancelled.

Marydoll hope all goes well for you today. I’m sure you will be in all our thoughts. 💐

Glad your tootle out went well Spangler in Jessica. We will have a spin in ours while we are in Suffolk. The roads are quieter there with peaceful country lanes. The GC love a ride in it and call it Chitty, Chitty , Bang Bang.

Gingster Mon 27-Jul-20 07:23:08

Sent too soon. Have a peaceful day all. 🌺

MellowYellow Mon 27-Jul-20 07:24:15

Thank you Puzzler61, I will! They grow so quickly so I am making the most of this time.

Morning All

High thick grey cloud here in the north of Norfolk, but no rain as yet. It may well miss us as it often does, if so I may get out in the garden to annoy some soil and do a bit of dead-heading.

DiL is waiting to hear if she's to be summoned for jury duty, in which case we'll be DGS sitting. This is her second week and, as the courts are supposed to be so far behind, she was expecting at least one case. But nothing as yet.

Good luck today Marydoll, I hope they have something they can do about all those side effects.

Good morning from a grey, damp Essex by the sea.
Yesterday we went out for a late lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it, first time since March.
Today I am having my hair cut, I'm so excited 🤪. I usually have very short hair, cut every 6 weeks. The last time it was cut was mid March and it is now very long and untidy. I will be a new woman 🤣🤣🤣.
I hope today goes well for you Marydoll.
Have a pleasant day and stay safe everyone xx

Morning Mick and All.

A grey wet day in prospect in South Bucks.

Glad you have your first holiday to look fwd to Mick.

Meeting up with some WI friends today for tea and cake. Simple pleasures, good friends.

Spangler we are missing watching the NF ponies and donkeys, having just returned from our annual visit to the Forest. I could quite easily live there.

Good luck for today Mary. 🤞

kittylester Mon 27-Jul-20 07:32:34

Morning all from a very soggy North Leicestershire.

DH is having his hair cut this morning!! Anyone need a cushion stuffing?

DD3 and her three are coming today. Yippee! We are always worried that Wolfie will not remember us but he is always eager for a cuddle and I think we are actually allowed to give him one now!

Have a good day everyone.

Stuart96 Mon 27-Jul-20 07:38:05

Good morning from Ashdown forest. I was going to try and sort out my Rose's this morning but grey skys and showers have put a hold on that. Tap roots blocking drain holes in pots not good news.

NanKate Mon 27-Jul-20 07:41:59

Enjoy your cuddles Kitty

Mythbirtthedragon Mon 27-Jul-20 07:46:30

Good morning from east London, grey with rain. If it eases off, I will away to tennis between 12 and 14.00 which will involve my first trip on a bus for over 4 months as the car is not available. My travel pass has been dusted off. Later on, DD and the GDs will be over to help me with my contribution to the choir video; I’m bound to get very bossy so must be careful not to put them off.
Hope you have a good day.

Grandmabatty Mon 27-Jul-20 07:48:50

Good morning All. It's very wet and dismal here so an indoor babysitting stint today as dg doesn't have wellies or rain gear yet. Hopefully it'll clear later. I'm having lovely walnut and sultana bread toasted for breakfast and will have to ration it as it's very moreish. pantglas have a lovely beach day. marydoll fingers crossed that the side effects aren't as bad with the injection. spangler it sounds lovely where you live with access to wildlife. gingster have a lovely holiday. Have a good day all.

cornergran Mon 27-Jul-20 07:54:30

Morning Mick, morning All. Woken by some unreasonably noisy thunder, it’s pouring, huge puddles again in our very soggy corner of Somerset. . Second shower in the month? Goodness grandMattie, I’m envious. Good luck wishes to marydoll, hope the reduced dose will suit you better. A faffing day ahead here, nothing too arduous but stuff needs doing. Be gentle with yourselves everyone.

brook2704 Mon 27-Jul-20 08:04:32

Good morning everyone from a grey Inverness. It’s not raining yet but I’m sure we’ll get some later today.
Yesterday was warm and sunny with just the occasional shower, we popped round to DD2 garden for a sandwich lunch and enjoyed sitting out and watching the DGC play.
Hoping all goes well today marydoll
Hope the day is kind to everyone and take care when out and about 💐

Scentia Mon 27-Jul-20 08:07:18

Good Morning all from East Staffordshire. Wet out there today, pooch and I got soaked on the way to work, she hated the rain and was pulling me like a husky to get to the factory!!
Busy work day today, at some point I will have to brave a shop in this blinkin’ mask😷
I hope you all have pleasant, wet days as I think this is country wide today. Hope it all goes smoothly Marydoll and it is less severe than last time.
