Good Morning everyone from a dark Severnside. Not sure what it’s like outside but I know it’s not frosty.

A home day for me finishing off the lasagne I made yesterday for my meal.

I hope we hear from gilly today.

I’ll be back later to for a Marydoll tale. In the meantime I wish you all a lovely day 🌺

Good morning Beechnut and all to come.No idea what the weather is like here in Shropshire as still dark.It doesn’t feel as cold as yesterday.
We are meant to be going to Stafford today to visit DD2 and family but just waiting to see if DD1 needs help with the children as she has been quite unwell the last couple of days.
Have a good day everyone.
Hope things are still improving gilly.Sending you love thoughts and prayers.x

Morning all from a chilly North Leicestershire. There is no frost but it isn't warm.

Alzheimer's course this morning and a bit of Christmas shopping this afternoon for me.

I hope Mick is having a good time in Bournmouth and thank you beechnut for being brave!

Really hoping to hear from gillybob today.

Have a lovely day everyone.

Good morning Beechnut and all from the Scottish Borders. I hope Michael is enjoying his break.
The rain has stopped but i dont feel like starting the day. It's too dark.
I hope the Gillybobs are making good progress.
I wonder what we'll hear from Marydoll today.

Good Morning from the S Welsh coast.
Another sleepless night and I am having a cuppa in bed.
Hope your DD1 is better soon Susan, she is lucky to have you to step in to help.
I hope that Marydoll and her family have a good time in snowy New York.
Enjoy reading about all your Christmas Fayres and preparations.
Have a good day all.

Good morning one and all.
Still in bed and haven't looked out yet but phone says 1c and a sunny morning is forecast in Kent.
Food shopping and coffee out with DH this morning. I may write my cards this afternoon.
Have a good day everyone. Hope The Big Apple is not too cold Marydoll.
Good wishes for the gillybobs

Good Morning to all. Normal work day today, and gym this evening. Had an busy day yesterday, had to speak to my mother on the phone for the first time in a year, soon realised why I don’t like her😂 never mind it is only once a year!!

I was sat here trying to guess who would start the thread as mick is away, (1 point to me!!!, I guessed correctly)
Hope everyone has a good day.

I love to read this thread even though I have only just started posting it always cheers me up and even though I don’t know any of you I honestly feel elated as Mr Gillybob is improving, hope it continues.

Good morning everyone from a dark and gloomy Malaga! So much for that weather forecast showing wall-to-wall sunshine all this week! Last night we had rain of biblical proportions around 9pm. The road outside had at least a couple of inches of rainwater and the traffic had slowed right down in the dark to navigate the speed bumps.

It’s so dark this morning. It’s 8am here now and it’s only just coming light. I’ve made a cuppa and himself is still fast asleep. I suppose the dark mornings at this time of year help with a lie in!

We have no plans today but I started a new book last night - Elena Ferrante’s ‘My Beautiful Friend’ and I’m enjoying it so will probably read for most of the day. Why not?

Thanks for opening up Beechnut! Hope you are enjoying Bournemouth Mick if you see the thread.

No word from gillybob I hope all is well and that we get some news soon.

Looking forward to hearing from our roving reporter, Marydoll. I felt the anxiety with that snowstorm up in the Cathills waiting for their transport. I too would have been stressed as all the shops were locking up.

Hope Tuesday is kind to us all whether we have plans or (like me) none. x

Morning All and thanks to beechnut for opening up. Seems darker than yesterday in our corner of Somerset. No frost, jolly cold though. Hair cut this morning, don’t like the process but it needs doing. Christmas tea to go to this afternoon, really must write some cards in between. So much else I’d rather be doing. Love to gilly and her husband as ever, hope marydoll and her family are having a less scary time and Monday is kind to everyone.

Good Morning to all from a dark and damp Fife once again. Beechnut - thank you. Hope Mick is having a good time. All went well yesterday with DH at hospital so glad. Off to the west of Scotland today not far from Glasgow to visit Uncle once again who is nearing nearing completion of tiding up my late aunt's possessions, it's very difficult but hope I help a bit today again. I'm sure we will hear from Mary and hope from Gilly too. Have our tree and decorations up, if I can I will try and post picture I have of my absolutely beautiful cross-stitch my DD made a few years ago and it never ceases to bring a tear to my eye each Christmas it gets hung on the wall. Have a good day everyone, take care.

Good Morning from a cold but not icy Black Country.

Had a wander around Lichfield yesterday. I lived there for 20 years so it is always good to go back occasionally. Then onto pick up DGD3 from school and stay with her and her sister till my DS and DIL arrived home from Christmas shopping in Birmingham. Waited for the rush hour traffic to abate, so finally arrived home at 9pm

Today I am off to Birmingham to meet friends for lunch. Not sure if I fancy braving the shops, so probably go straight back home afterwards.

I know what you mean about hairdressers cornergran I have to take my hearing aids out, so cannot even join in with the chit chat smile

Hoping Marydoll is enjoying her trip without too many mishaps! Enjoy your week away in Bournemouth Mick

Special thoughts to gilly and hoping no news is good news.

mumofmadboys Tue 03-Dec-19 07:38:28

Good morning all. I have got the U3A Christmas lunch today. Hope things continue to steadily improve for the Gillybobs.

oldgoat Tue 03-Dec-19 07:41:27

Morning all.
We have a beautiful yellow sunrise this morning in York, and it's not raining!

Still tucked up in bed recovering from yesterday's meet-up in Edinburgh and hoping thatmarydoll is keeping well and having a great time in New York. We missed her yesterday but I helped to keep the tills ringing at TKMaxx in her absence by popping in and buying a nice warm coat to keep out the Scottish cold.
Have a good day everyone and fingers crossed that Mr.Gillybob is on the road to recovery.

Brunette10 Tue 03-Dec-19 07:43:38

Not sure if this has worked!

Pantglas2 Tue 03-Dec-19 07:47:20

Morning beechnut and thanks for opening up this dark but dry morning from north Wales.

Not a lot planned - bit of sewing, bit of cooking, some pottering, some knitting and I’ve got the new ‘Jack Reacher’ novel to start!

Can’t wait for Marydoll latest episode - she’s the new Joyce Grenfell/Maureen Lipman sent to entertain us!

Some good news from Gillybob would just finish the day nicely wouldn’t it!

Ginny42 Tue 03-Dec-19 07:48:56

Good morning Beechnut and everyone. Hope you're enjoying Bournemouth Mick if you join us later. Had a lie-in this morning and I feeling drowsy, not a nice sensation.

It's definitely warmer in Cheshire, a tropical 6C which is nice for my trip to meet my sister for lunch and shopping in Knutsford. First a walk in the woods at 9.00 with the neighbours.

Keep putting off writing the cards, but then one from the US arrived yesterday and that was a wake up call to get my skates on. Hope Marydoll isn't skating in the Park, although I wouldn't put it past her!

Much love to Gilly, so hope her DH continued to improve. Warm wishes to dragonfly and others coping with treatment or difficulties.

Have a good day everyone.

Morning All

A brilliant sunrise this morning bodes ill for the weather.

We’re off out for lunch today with friends to somewhere we’ve not been before. Stake in the Stix. Not sure what to expect!

Hopefully Gilly has good news and Mary has an uneventful day.

Good morning,

It’s a still, dry morning here in South Yorkshire without frost, though still very cold.

Off to town soon to do a bit of shopping without DH, so I can finish his presents off - just stocking fillers, but it’s nice for him to have a couple of surprises. He knows what his main present is as I asked him to choose it so that he could be sure to have the correct one!

I went to my first Christmas party last night which was very enjoyable (not that I’ve got many more to attend, mind you, and they are day time ones - my party days are few and far between now 😁).

Hoping we hear from gilly today and pray that her DH continues on his road to recovery.

I hope, too, that marydoll is having fun in New York without further mishap!

To all unwell, I send my best wishes that you soon feel better.

Take care, everyone.

Morning Beechnut and All.

Thanks for holding the Fort for Mick Beechnut.

Calm cold day in South Bucks.

That picture is lovely Brunette.

We have our WI Christmas Tea today. We always have a good raffle. Also we collect gifts for the women and children in our local refuge. I won’t be having much supper as the Committee always provide an excellent Tea. I’ve got DH sorted with a meal for one from M and S.

Hope Mary’s NY escapades are good and not snowbound.

Love to the Gillybobs. 💐

Good Morning from Bristol its dry and I think cold but no frost on the cars,
Not much on today, a bit of extra house work cleaning the inside of the windows, window cleaner due for the outside.
I hope Mike is enjoying his break away and Marydoll.
I hope Gillybob is ok and we hear some news about her DH today.
Take care everyone.

Resurgam123 Tue 03-Dec-19 08:13:00

Good morning All.
No frost this morning here in Cheshire.
I am missing getting out in the garden.
I took several photos of my frozen roses yesterday. There really is nothing much I can do now.
A bit too cold to wander out in the garden in my dressing gown now and inspect the plants
Have a good day.

Yiayia4 Tue 03-Dec-19 08:17:17

Morning all, cloud and frost free in Surrey.

A very slow start for me today after a bad night I'm aching and stiff but lots to do will rest later.
Hope we hear from Gilly today.
Have a good Tuesday everyone.
