Good Morning Everyone,
Up early as usual, Its dark but no sign of any fog this morning, brackley.
My day today will be into Bicester via Buckingham on the bus links.
Usual Coffee stops in Bicester ,then back in Buckingham , being a Saturday will have a light lunch , then later get a Chinese take away.
Yesterday I managed to buy a soup spoon Chinese porcelain type, but unable to get a soup bowl in the same mode.
I like two types of Chinese soup, but think the spoons and bowl make it more authentic when eating at home.

Good Morning Mick and everybody

It's a misty start again here on the south coast but forecast to clear by 10am.

My visit to the new dentist yesterday has left me facing a surgical extraction, one other extraction, 2 fillings and a crown. All this despite regular 6-monthly check ups at the previous dentist - with whom I had gradually lost confidence. Now I know I was right to do so. Not looking forward to the next few weeks but at least I should have a pain-free mouth again!

Hope the day is kind to us all.

Theatre visit this evening.

Good morning everyone.

Thick fog again in Kent. Don't envy DD who went to work at 6.30 am in this. She will be home at 10.30 and DH will cook brunch.
The rest of the day I will be pottering in doors and DH in the garage.
Have a good day all.

Hope Mr Lester is ok post op.

Good Morning All. I did not get a good nights sleep and I am feeling rough.

My back is complaining because I have been lying flat all night and the bad bony bits are now hurting . It is so difficult to get a good nights sleep.
Sorry for having a moan.

Gagagran I had a filling fall out last night. I will be off to get a temporary filling kit when the shops open. Its worth trying.
My morning cup of tea will help my mood.

Morning all, my bit of North Leicestershire is a bit misty but not too bad.

Thamk you nina. I'm hoping to pick him up today. He was disappointed not to come home yesterday but there seems to have been a little bit of miscommunication going on.

gaga, that is a huge amount of work.

Enjoy the theatre dragonfly.

Morning girotd - sorry to hear about your bad night.

Good Morning. A lot clearer here on South Welsh coast compared to yesterday where the fog lingered until lunchtime.
Enroute to hospital saw daffodils and primroses, how Springlike.

Dragonfly, enjoy the theatre.
Kitty, hope Mr Lester is feeling better.
Gettingitrightontheday, try a pillow under your knees to relieve the pressure when lying flat and between knees on your side.
Going to watch the rugby later.

The proper dishes for Chinese soup sounds interesting

Good morning from a mild NE.
A quiet day for us with the newspapers, my muscles and joints are too sore for exercise today.
Hope you get DH home today kitty.

Good morning Michael and all GNs. A very misty cool start in South Yorkshire. I think we did a bit too much in the garden yesterday! Too old to be dragging b****y great rocks around and digging out roots. Today I shall confine myself to the house, which is begging for my attention!! Glad Mr L gets to come home today, Kitty. Home’s best! Have a good day folks!

Good morning all from a dry Aberdeenshire. The sky is streaked with gold and it's quite mild.
Last night's Granite Noir Scottish crime writer's weekend event was fantastic... a conversation with Abir Mukherjee. No one knew who the special interviewee was to be, and to the stage came Nichols Sturgeon! To be fair, she was excellent and poked a few political jokes at herself.
Nothing planned for today so shall do a few sewing jobs while watching the rugby. Let's hope Scotland can beat the French.
Have a good day everyone.

Good morning everyone from a mild and sunny South Manchester. The sky is a lovely shade of apricot over the Pennines as the sun is fully up - a big ball of bright orange.

I have my weekly appointment this morning for a wash and blow at the hair salon round the corner. It’s a real treat to have it done professionally! No plans today but no doubt something/someone will turn up!

Enjoy your Chinese tonight Mick.
A lot of appointments Gagagran ahead of you but worth it to finally be pain free.

Good morning all from a misty E. Northants. No particular plans yet for today, I shall just let it unfold. I hope Saturday is good to everyone.

Morning Mick, morning All from a chilly, bright corner of Somerset. Need to finish yesterday’s sorting, do a small food shop, then some admin before a cuppa and a chat with a neighbour. Phew, I’m exhausted thinking about it. Mr Lester sounds an impatient patient kitty, but then don’t we all do better at home? Good luck with the dental treatment gaga, soon be pain free so worth it. Hope Saturday is kind to everyone.

Good Morning from a bright and sunny Black Country, after a gorgeous warm and sunny day yesterday.

Had an enjoyable lunch with DS and family and Mum, at the 1940's café. It is attached to Boscobel House near Stafford.

Today, we will be stripping wallpaper, ready for the Plasterer to skim on Friday. Operation re-vamp kitchen slowly coming along.

Pleased Mr Lester is home today kitty, hope he will take it easy this weekend. Gaga that sounds like a lot of work to have done, but will be worth it to be pain free! Hope it all goes well flowers

Enjoy your Saturday everyone.

Good morning from a lifting mist in east London. If it clears as well as yesterday, we've got a warm day in store. Bit dozy at the moment as have been reading since before 6 but springing into action is imminent. Some food shopping is required including ibuprofen as DS has depleted our reserves with an ear infection. Hoping to get to the cinema later to see The Favourite. Have a good day.

Marydoll Sat 23-Feb-19 08:30:21

Good morning all from a sunny Glasgow, despite that not being the forecast.
Very restless night, due to my painful hands. Rather than lie abed, I got up and stuck hot cross buns in the oven. The house smells wonderful.
DD and fiance have invited themselves to lunch before they fly off to Budapest tomorrow, so I won't get much done.
I hope your DH gets home this morning, Kitty
Commiserations, Gaga, glad you found another dentist.
For all those feeling down or unwell, flowers
Enjoy your Saturday, everyone.

Good Morning from Fife. It’s a quiet start to the day, no wind just very peaceful and I think it will be a nice day. Have our DGS’s for overnight stay tonight so hoping all goes well. Thinking of everyone today.

Good morning all from a lovely mild ne. Not a lot of plans today but dh might start tidying the garden a bit will help him in spirit and telling where to put things! Need washing and ironing done so will keep busy. Happy Saturday to all .

Annapops Sat 23-Feb-19 09:12:47

Good morning all from a very grey County Durham.
Kitchen awaiting tiles and then it's completed. I'm so very happy with it as it's so light and cheery.
A market town drive out today to get some much needed fresh air, although I did go and do a 30 minute run outside yesterday and gave the gym treadmill a miss. I must admit I felt rather pleased with myself although it was hard.
Hope you all have a good day and find something to make you smile.

Good morning, weather here in Worcestershire - beautiful and sunny. Really feeling like SPRING. Enjoy. Tidying the garden today.

gma Sat 23-Feb-19 09:19:56

Misty start in Norwich today! Hope sun breaks through! Stunning day yesterday, up to 17c and wall to wall sunshine! If anyone else says to me that “we will play for this fine weather later” I will scream!! We have had it and it’s fantastic, enjoy it!!!
A bit of ironing to do this morning and then some work on family tree! Just had email from cousin in Canada with more info she discovered in a pile of her late dad’s papers and some very interesting details emerged!!!
Have a good day everyone
