Good Morning Everyone,

Nice easy day for me , small shop ,and then will watch cycling on TV.
Maybe some small household chores as well .

Good Morning all from East Staffordshire, weather looks dry out there, hope it stays dry. Off to a staff meeting first thing at the children’s homes and I am taking DD and DGS and dropping them at a beauty spot right near where I work them we are going to lunch. I am lucky to work in one of the most beautiful places on the Leicestershire/Nottinghamshire border and love to spend time around there.
I have arranged with DH that I have every Wednesday off work so I can spend some time with DGS and DD, I said I will be taking it off whether the factory is busy or not as I am mindful that I am working so many hours and I need a day off.
Now then folks you all have a lovely day and take care. Hope Marydoll feels better today after the nasty message encounter. Gilly hope you are ok and getting some feedback from this elusive order, unless I have missed something I think they are still dragging their feet.
Stay happy 😆

Morning Mick, morning All. Looks damp outside in our corner of Somerset but so relieved the wind has dropped to more usual levels, frightening here yesterday. Blood test this morning and dentist this afternoon. Not exciting but has to be done. The procedure for getting into the dentist sounds more than complicated. Guess who is guaranteed to get it wrong? grin. Take care everyone, special thoughts to those finding life hard going.

Morning all from cool quiet Spain where DH has brought the chamberpot ☕️for my use......tee hee!

A local market this morning where a new handbag 👜 might find itself under new ownership- the one I’ve had for last five summers is rather tired and scuffed (I used the exact same words to my husband last night!)

Dinner this evening at friends and she’s a damn good cook so looking forward to that! Hope you all have something good happening today x

Good Morning everyone from what looks a brighter Severnside morning for my birthday.

What a day yesterday! I sat watching the clouds rolling swiftly by and found it rather spooky as I had been binge watching a drama on iPlayer called The Last Wave.

I don’t plan on doing much today, probably potter and I’m expecting my fr

Beechnut Wed 26-Aug-20 06:35:51

friend to call in.
I’ve just finished my chamber pot of tea so I wish you all a good day 🌼

Goo d morning from grey, windy E Kent. We didn't have much rain yesterday, and what we did have, has more than dried from the strong winds all day and night!
I had my feet done by my lovely Moroccan podiatrist yesterday. Made a stir fry for dinner - far too much, so that is lunch sorted.
DS2 has decided to discharge himself, since nothing is happening and no-one is telling him what is going on. I'm rather worried about that, but he is grown-up and has to make his own decisions.
Nothing on today, DH is going to have his three-monthly hormone injection today. Washing clothes and the inevitable folding and ironing. I'm cooking lamb shanks for dinner - DS1 will love that.
All those with problems, please be kind to yourselves and have a gentntle day.
Stay safe everyone.

Good Morning everyone. Sun coming up and I raise my chamber pot to you, Beechnut. Have a very happy birthday 🎂🎁🎈. All good morning wishes from France!

Friends for lunch so off to water pots and vacuum courtyard. Not chatted since February, so excited. Will be unable to speak after a few hours, I’m sure!

Have a splendid Wednesday, all.......and stay safe.

Good morning Mick and all

It has been so windy here overnight hardly slept.

Cleaner is here this morning and I should be going to the gym but I may cancel the gym as I am so tired and have the start of a headache.

Happy Birthday Beechnut 🎂🍾

Keep safe and well folks 🙋‍♀️

Pantglas2 Wed 26-Aug-20 07:07:01

Have a lovely day Beechnut 🥂🍾

Good morning all from a bright but still windy Essex by the sea.
A disturbed night, I have a 'tummy' problem, hope it sorts itself out today. We are booked for a 'Rishi' meal tonight in a local pub. Looking forward to not having to cook.
I must vacuum through this morning and there is more washing to do, two people seem to produce an awful lot of dirty clothes !!!
Have a lovely Wednesday everyone and stay safe xx

Sar53 Wed 26-Aug-20 07:26:59

Sorry meant to wish Beechnut a very happy birthday 🥂🍾🎂xx

Good Morning Mick and all. I asked my Alexa the time earlier and had the reply " It's's a bit parky out there isn't it".
The high winds were frightening here too yesterday, glad it is a bit calmer this morning.
Wishing Beechnut a very Happy Birthday 🎉
Have a pleasant day everyone, stay safe.

Morning all from a very windy North Leicestershire. You must work closing to me Scentia as our bit of Leicestershire is about 5 miles from Nottinghamshire.

We had a lovely lunch out with DS1 yesterday and a lovely relaxed chat.

Zoomed Carer's course this morning. We have 8 participants which is quite a big group and I am jiggered after. Strange as we have 15 or so on real life courses and it isn't a problem.

We have a new cleaner starting today - hope she is as good as seems.

Many happy returns Beechnut.

Thinking of everyone with worries and problems.

Jaxjacky Wed 26-Aug-20 07:40:27

Good Morning Mick and all from a calmer Hants, suns out and I hope it stays as washing going on in a minute.
Tesco delivering pm, then out for last EOTHO meal tonight, must ring the dentist. I need extensive dental work and am the most scaredy cat, started at dentist who specialises in phobic people just before lockdown, so need to see her plan and hopefully, 😱 start soon.
Have a lovely day all.

Good morning all from the Scottish Borders. It has stopped raining but is still dreich.
No yarn group in the garden. We'll have to be virtual.
Happy Birthday Beechnut wineflowerscupcake
Still a worry about your son GrandMattie I spent a week in hospital once before my pain source was discovered. I had every available scan but it was a blood test result which showed the mischief.
Hope today goes well for all those struggling.

Happy birthday Beechnut! 🎂 Bright and breezy in south Cornwall today, almost autumnal (which I love). Ended up in Newquay yesterday with son and grandson. Boy, was it packed with people not sure what to do on a damp August day! I love the contrast between the two coasts in Cornwall - the waves were magnificent there yesterday, with loads of surfers. Today it's the allotment knitting group, lovely bunch of ladies, but only three of us can make it this time. Have a good day everyone, if you can.

Pittcity Wed 26-Aug-20 07:42:39

Good morning from windy Colchester. The wind kept me awake too, hope there's not too much damage. It's not forecast to drop until this afternoon, so more indoor activities with 2 dgs.

Happy birthday*beechnut*🥳

Good morning from Shropshire.Gales and torrential rain from 1pm yesterday but calmer now.

Day two of the big garage sort out today,hopefully another car load to the tip.

DD2,SIL and DGS aged 2 coming to stay tomorrow so will get things ready for them.

Happy birthday Beechnut🥳🎉🎂🍾🥂💐

Hope you had a better night Cherry and are feeling better today.x

Sending good wishes to all and hope all our absent goodmorningers are feeling better.

Have a good day all.

Good morning all from a still very windy Suffolk coast. I like my windows open at night but the blinds were flapping about so much it kept me awake so had to close them. Now woken with a stuffy head. Just let little pooch out in the garden and the gate had blown open, dustbins on their sides and rain barrel rolling around. Also the heavy garden bench has blown over and is leaning against the table. Some power In that wind.

We will shop today as we have visitors Thursday and Friday. We had planned a lovely summer garden bar b q in lieu of my 70th last month, walks along the beach and lazing in the sunshine. I think it will be more like a cosy dinner in the summerhouse and chatting til we’re hoarse. Never mind it’s the company of old friends that’s important.

Happy birthday Beechnut hope you have a lovely day 👑
It was my DG2 ‘s 14th birthday yesterday., and she ended up in hospital with really bad stomache pains. They called for an ambulance as she had passed out and was shaking. The paramedics put her on a drip and took her to hospital. They said it’s probably her ovaries . Hope it isn’t endometriosis which is so painful. She doesn’t need that at her age! 😢

Have a pleasant day all . 🌺

NanKate Wed 26-Aug-20 07:47:16

Morning Mick and All.

A very happy birthday Beechnut 🥳🎂

Hugs to Marydoll.

We are away on a short holiday on this blustery but sunny day.

Think we will visit the Avebury Standing Stones and then stop off at Marlborough for a bit of retail therapy at Seasalt. I’ve seen a nice blue jacket in the Sale.

Kalu Wed 26-Aug-20 07:48:16

Good morning all from an unpromising looking sky here in Glasgow. Yesterday’s heavy rain meant I could get started on a new book so I count that as a plus.

DH had a particularly nasty migraine yesterday and spent the best part of the day lying in a darkened room until it lifted early evening. One of the the things which causes them is coffee, which he loves and has been having one a day for a while now, we thought he was no longer having an adverse reaction but it was obviously building up as yesterday proved.

I am expecting a delivery today which might well be the highlight of my day along with some faffing about.

I noticed you are MIA grandmaFrench. Hope all is well with you.

Hope you are feeling a bit brighter today after the nasty upsetting PM Marydoll. Be kind to yourself today.

Best wishes to all for a good day especially those of our friends who have worries to cope with.

Taichinan Wed 26-Aug-20 07:48:46

Good morning all, and Happy Birthday Beechnut from a grey and cold Angus coast. What a storm yesterday! I don't know when I last saw rain like that, and strong winds with it. Let's just say it wasn't warm! We have decided to recommence tai chi classes when halls become available and with smaller numbers. My hall is not open yet but I'm looking to see if another one is. I have logistical nightmares ahead, trying to fit classes for 45 people, socially distanced, into three hours! A trip to the shops is necessary today - I have meat in the freezer, but little in the fridge to go with it. I'm beginning to feel as grey and dreary as the sky. Have a bright day wherever you are - and here's to winter clothes and raincoats! 🦋💐🦋

Grandmafrench Wed 26-Aug-20 08:00:38

Thank you Kalu. Fear not, I was up and at 'em this morning (6th post!)...I know, it shocked me too. Since I have food to prepare for a lunch with friends, I wanted to make a start before the sunshine. It's 8oclock your time and 25degs here already, so I am running about (with a duster and vacuum cleaner.! ). Pretty damned talented considering I also seem to be typing this at the same time!! Absolutely no idea why the flurry of housework, no one is coming into the house except for the loo' but old habits die hard, don't they. Have a good day and trust that your DH is more himself today - nasty things migraines! Keep safe inside your new book! grin .
