Good Morning Everyone,
Its grey at present dry but windy here in Brackley this morning .
Nice easy day for me , small shop ,and then will watch cycling on TV.
Maybe some small household chores as well .
Yesterdays bus trip was OK , as the rain eased a little but the wind did not.
Take Care ,

I may be wrong but I think Puzzler said she was off on holiday for three weeks and wouldn't be posting while she was away? If that was someone else, please out me right!

Good morning everyone from Gower where the sky is blue.

Perfect day for washing so it's on the line now.
I will be living the life cleaning the extension shortly and then "sealing" it off in readiness for a visit from my niece1 and her husband tomorrow.

🎶 Happy Birthday Beechnut , I hope you have a pleasant day 🎂🎁🎈

Thank you Nortsat and Susan for your well wishes x

Still thinking of our absentees, I am sending you all some ☀️

Take care and stay safe everyone ❤️

Good Morning all from cloudy Harrogate. No plans particularly for today. Have more admin to get sorted - actually involves sorting this Macbook I am using. No butter or eggs left to do baking. Yesterday I was reading the aftercare after my little foot op last week and read I was supposed to Keep the leg rested -Oops!! It feels OK, but I could have sworn it was only for 2 days (wishful thinking). Fingers crossed I haven't done myself any harm.

Hope all are has life going the way they want. Keep Well

Another late post from S Lanarkshire, how can you be busy when you have nothing to do? Just a happy birthday to Beechnut and a hope that gingster’s granddaughter has a simple solution for her pain.
Marydoll they were talking this morning on the tv about all the old fax machines being dug out in offices much to the bewilderment of young tech savvy staff!

Taichinan yes I think Puzzler'was travelling around Turkey. ? and would not have internet.

Sorry, just have to pop back in after reading more posts - I'll go shopping later! I'm a great collector of quotations and I just love your "*Everything is theoretically impossible, until it's done*" Marydoll. And then along came "Harrigran* with "*the man from the big river*"! I'm in seventh heaven here! And before I go, Mapeleaf,"your" polar bear cub is coming to you from the Highland Wildlife Park. I saw him on the local news the other night,. He's three years old and of the age when he would traditionally leave his mother in the wild. Looks like a wee (maybe not so wee!) cutie. I hope you manage to go to see him. 🦋💐🦋

Beechnut did you realise you share a birthday (he’s 66y today) with Steve Wright the Radio 2 DJ - ‘lovin’ the show Steve!’.

Hi Taichinan. Yes, I do hope I will get to see the new polar bear cub, Hamish, soon. I’ve seen some pictures and he really is a cutie. He I the first polar bear to be born in the UK in 25 years, apparently.
Sadly, one of the elderly polar bears, Victor, died last week aged 22, so it will be good to have a youngster joining the ranks. Victor had fathered 13 cubs and has many grandchildren around the world, according to the YWP post so has played a huge part in the European Breeding Programme.

That should say “He is” not He I.
