Today's thread Good Morning Tuesday seems to have changed into the GN Cafe. You may like to check it out.

I'm Kate from Buckinghamshire. Can I order a strong Italian cappuccino and a tiny almond biscuit (2 mouthfuls worth)? Only minimal sprinkles on my coffee thanks. brew. I will fill in my Sodoku until a GNetter arrives to join me. smile

Good morning from a dreary Yorkshire. Just a black coffee please and do you serve cheese scones? That will keep me going until Pilates when I convince myself all the calories have been worked off grin

Hi 1974cookie, I'm from Colchester too, isn't it miserable today, walking my spaniel isn't much fun to look forward to today!

Hello Taffy. Greetings from North Yorkshire.
Hope you enjoy popping into the cafe.
I've been to swimming pool this afternoon at Thirsk, water was quite cool. So, I could really fancy a Latte (one shot) and a piece of Carrot cake.

NanKate Wed 01-Feb-17 21:00:49

Good to see you in the cafe Kupari I will join you with a piece of carrot cake if I may. We better steer clear of those folk who are giving up snacks for February.

We are travelling down to Sussex on Friday and I have seen the bad weather warnings. Our youngest GS is 4 tomorrow so we are very lucky to be invited to his Paw Patrol Party on Saturday. We were top of his invite list grin

Charleygirl Wed 01-Feb-17 21:45:04

I am staying in soop's kitchen because we can bring animals there and coffee and cakes are free.

callgirl1 Thu 02-Feb-17 00:46:03

Hello from Boston. Is this café licensed?

NanKate Thu 02-Feb-17 07:08:50

What a great idea CallGirl cheers wine

Rinouchka Thu 02-Feb-17 07:19:20

Hello boozy café, then!
But I will have a huge skinny latte and an almond croissant, please.

DanniRae Thu 02-Feb-17 14:53:56

Hello taffy from a miserable South London - but at least it's not raining!
Skinny decafe latte please and a slice of chocolate cake (low calorie, of course) grin

HildaW Thu 02-Feb-17 14:59:00

Its nearly 3 now so a nice pot of tea please, with a scone and jam. Hold the cream it gives me indigestion!!

Very blowy here in Herefordshire and the geese keep taking off from next door's lake and honking in the sky. Also the bird feeders are very busy with gold finches and blue tits. There is one solitary cock pheasant who scratches around on the ground ensuring all the bits get eaten up.

Brendaj Sat 04-Feb-17 12:08:41

Good morning .mine is a tea and a jam scone please.

Brendaj Sat 04-Feb-17 12:12:29
