Good Morning Everyone,
Its twilight at the moment, but its dry and looks like being another mild day here in Brackley.

Morning Mick, morning all.

It is just getting light in North Leicestershire and is quite warm. Not much happening today. A friend was supposed to be coming for supper but I'm not really up to it today. Pigging cold!

Enjoy your days everyone.

Morning All

Overcast here in my bit of Norfolk. And supposed to be stupidly warm but I haven't put my nose outside yet to find out.

I've had a tummy upset for the last couple of days and this morning I'm feeling human again at last. I think it was the stress of the last few days; helping DS to move house (which didn't go at all according to plan) look after DGS and DGdog, take the plunge for having a new knee and to top it off the visit of chaotic DD1 and family. My mother used to keep saying I did too much. I think this last week she was right.

Today we just need to go with DDiL to meet the landlord of the house they rented to try to make sure they get their deposit back. Then, they're on their own!

Morning all.
It's dull in N Kent at the moment but we are promised a sunny, balmy 16c.
Hope the sun shines on you today.

Good morning from a cloudy but warm Colchester. 16 degrees today.
Walking Netball today and then a trip into town for a few bits.
Rest up nfk, you need to be fighting fit for our Gransnet lunch tomorrow.
Kitty hope you get some sunshine and feel better soon.

Good morning, it is 11 degrees but we have gale force winds. I got well and truly beaten playing monopoly with GD1, Trafalgar square with three houses on and I kept landing on it. She says she is going to be an artist, nothing of the kind, she will be an estate agent grin

Good morning all. Sunshine in Cheshire at the moment butI am not holding my breath. More gardening if the weather is OK. Breakfast needed.
It is my birthday today I am now 69. Not much chance of celebrating though.
I would like someone to send me a big strong man with a fork and a wheelbarrow who won't pull his face when asked to do some garden work.

Happy Birthday Nelliemoser!
I am going for my usual INR blood test this morning and then its off to the tip with some garden rubbish.I hope your days are more exciting.

Mildred Mon 20-Feb-17 08:36:05

Happy birthday Nelliemoser if you find your strong man with the wheelbarrow can you send him in my direction please.

Good morning, Michael and all GNs, and happy birthday Nelliemoser! It is grey and damp in South Yorkshire this morning but I have my own little ray of sunshine (GS) who has decided he would like a cooked breakfast and a milkshake! harri we can't win at Monopoly with GS either. He somehow always manages to get Park Lane and Mayfair and then proceeds to fleece us! Not sure what we are doing today; we will be dictated to by weather I think. Have a good day, folks.

Morning, folks! Happy Birthday, NellieM!

Back to normal routine from today after a lovely few days' visit by DD and GSs. It'll take a while....

Happy days, dudes!

Good morning to you all and Happy Birthday Nellie. Overcast this morning, and I ache after gardening yesterday, a long overdue tidy-up, and it does look better, thank goodness. Not sure what today will bring, given up planning, take things as they come - except of course special invitations and appointments. Hope those who are feeling under the weather feel better soon. Enjoy your days.

Good morning everyone. Another Spring-like day here. Light relief to my serious coffee drinking provided by overjoyed bluetits hopping with glee over our newly dug bits of garden.
A full morning of exercise ( when I'll hop as well) then some pre-Spring cleaning, part 1 planned.

Happy Birthday, Nelliemoser and may the birthday fairies bring some sparkle and cake to your day! cupcake flowers

Happy birthday Nelliemoser. There is a wheelbarrow behind our shed that you are welcome to, but unfortunately, it doesn't come attached to a strong young man 😜

Good morning to all, from France. Very still, with high, thin cloud, which I expect will burn off. A little stiff, after a weekend of gravel shifting. The weather was glorious.
Due to have a potentially difficult conversation later today, so will spend some time clarifying my thoughts!

Happy Birthday NellieM !

Good Morning from a very windy and grey Yorkshire. House tidying after a wonderful few days with grand child and looking forward to having my hair done later!

Happy Birthday Nelliemoser - may all your wishes come true!
