Good Morning Everyone,
Its dark, but remains dry here in Brackley tis morning .
Yesterday, felt a little under the weather , so took paracetamols, to ease it.
Also had my re appointment for my jab which will be the phizer one , a week tomorrow .
Plus more cardiac appointments, still not a 100% but I getting there with the lockdown, the need to actually go out apart from a small shop at a steady pace.

I too wasn't going to post as I am so late, but wanted to add my condolences to Auntieflo

Have been for a rather windy walk with a friend, just had lunch and now going to relax with a book.

Wishing you all a good afternoon

Wasn’t going to post as so late but wanted to send condolences to Auntieflo - so hard to lose the people you’ve grown up with.

It’s windy and cooler here in West Sussex. DD1 called to drop off her Dad’s birthday present which is ingredients for a cooked breakfast - speciality sausages, mushrooms, bacon etc. I guess I will have to get up earlier than usual and cook it for him! We had a bracing walk along the beach before she drove back.

My tidying up for the imagined visitors is going rather slowly - obviously my imagination is not quite strong enough. If it was really happening I would be speeded up 100%. Still, mustn’t give up grin.

It was Pantglas Auntieflo - I only remember it because she made me laugh too when she said it.

I do admire your fortitude. x

Auntieflo Fri 19-Feb-21 12:47:58

Thank you to all you dear GN friends for your condolences.

It does mean a lot, especially in these strange days, and I so look forward to reading all about your 'doings' and bizziness!
Can't remember who said that, but it makes me smile.

When PM's are restored Greenfinch, I will contact you. 🤞

Good morning all from mid Essex, good to see you simtib.
Had a lengthy FT with DD and DGD this morning- has set me up for the day.

Auntyflo I'm sorry to hear your sad news about your brother. You aren't having things easily just now. 💐

Good morning everyone from the north Kent coast where it is bright and breezy. Have been out for our walk; why is it that the wind is always blowing towards you whatever direction you are going in? 🤔. Good to be out in the fresh air.

Not much planned for today; some seed sowing in the greenhouse, a tricky jigsaw to try and finish and some emails to reply to.

Glad young Iris is doing well. Sorry about your sad news Auntieflo 💐. Look forward to seeing the photos of bouncing lambs Sheepandcattle 🐑.

Hope those with worries or feeling unwell have a better day. Have a good Friday. Stay safe

Goodmorning all.

You all sound very busy, AuntieFlo sorry to hear your sad news.

We started the day with a 5 mile hike round a nature reserve near us great time spotting egrets, swans, kestrals and buzzards then DH had a hissy fit so I walked ahead and left him to it!

Just done a click and collect order for some much needed household suppiles, the measuring just lost a handle and I need some duct tape. I can collect tomorrow morning as we head out with the dogs..

Wishing everyone a wonderful day ..
