Good Morning Everybody,
Its dry but grey here in Brackley at the present moment this morning.

NfkDumpling Thu 09-Mar-17 06:55:34

Morning Mick, morning All

Dark grey clouds in the east heading off over the sea and patches of blue in the west so hopefully a bright day coming for Norfolk.

I was up at silly o'clock yesterday with this horrible cold, then went back to bed and slept until nearly lunchtime! Hospital appointment this afternoon for a smear test. Deep joy! And I should be going to art class this morning but I think I'll skip it as I don't want to spread cold germs and really need to get rid of it or I shan't be able to get my new knee in ten days time (ten days! [collywobblys])

Morning Mick, morning Nfk, morning all.

It's really bright in North Leicestershire but it is also quite cold. Sainsbury's this morning for me then out for a cup of tea with a friend. She's supporting me because mum died and I'm supporting her as her husband gets some test results tomorrow - well, that's our excuse!! grin

Take care Nfk and get rid of that cold quick. brew

Morning all
Forecast is for dry weather but there is some large dark clouds out there.
H is still banished to the spare room as he has "the cough" he's sounding like he's on 40 a day but hasn't smoked for 40 yrs grin

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. Sunny here today, but cold. My oldest friend is coming to lunch today. On a day like this we would usually have a walk afterward but she is not well these days and can't walk very far. But we have not seen each other since New Year, so there will be plenty to talk about. Have a good day, everyone.

Good morning all. Sun shining here in Renfrewshire, but a strong breeze. It doesn't look too warm, but the sky is a lovely shade of blue. Off to Spain in the morning on a very last minute holiday. Unexpected break from baby minding, so grabbing the opportunity.
I have realised my summer clothes are up in the loft and there is no way to get up there.
I will be the only person there in a woolly jumper and boots. Help!
Have a good day everyone. Hope the cold goes and test results are OK.

Morning, folks! I'm looking forward to our meetup in Edinburgh. Meeting DD for a while beforehand too so it'll be a lovely day. It seems to be a lovely day weatherwise—always a bonus.

Had my annual eye test yesterday, which I've been having since my mum was diagnosed with glaucoma (as well as macular degeneration). I had a new type of eye scan that will be repeated in a few years' time to detect changes so they can hopefully diagnose glaucoma, if it occurs, as early as possible. It's a new technology and the optician seemed v excited about it, which was lovely to see.

Happy days, dudes.

Good morning Mick and everyone and what a bright sunny one it is too! Has Spring Sprung?? The birds are singing their little hearts out smile
Wishing you all a pleasant day, especially the Scottish Grans meeting up in Edinburgh sad Maybe another year.

Rinouchka Thu 09-Mar-17 08:26:07

Good morning everyone. Looks as of it will be a good Spring day here.
Hope you shift the cold, nfk and that all other colds, coughs and other univited lurgies invading anyone else get cleared. thatbags, I am also having the new test in April as my mother had glaucoma and macular degeneration. Hopeful advances.
Marydoll buy yourselves some new clothes at the airport or in Spain!
Off to morning meetings in town. Enjoy the day!

Marydoll Thu 09-Mar-17 08:28:23

Scottish grans meeting in Edinburgh, I hope you have a lovely time. How does a new gransnetter find out about these meet ups?

Nana3 Thu 09-Mar-17 08:31:04

I have a cold, it's such a nuisance.
Have a great meet up bags in beautiful Edinburgh.

Morning All. Bright and sunny so I can forgive the chilly temperatures. Not much planned today other than a food shop at some point. Hope Thursday is kind to everyone.

Hi, marydoll! For info about meetups go to "Gransnet Forums" at the top of a thread, click on it, and you'll get a list. In the list there is one called "Meetups". I hope you find one or two near you. They're great fun smile

Thanks thatbags Edinburgh one would have been nice. However, I may need to pluck up courage to go.

ffinnochio Thu 09-Mar-17 10:49:48

Good morning to all, from France. A calm, light start to the day. Perfect for walking (already back) and gardening.

Marydoll you won't need courage for an Edinburgh meet up. An easy going, lovely bunch of folk.

Hope you have a lovely day, B

Do go Marydoll. There are regular Edinburgh meetups and I have travelled up to a couple and had a great time.
All gransnetters are lovely welcoming people.
