Morning Mick and everyone.

A brighter start this morning in N Kent. We still haven't had the rain they've been forecasting since Friday. Not that I'm complaining.

Morning Mick, morning nina, morning all.

It's a brightish start in North Leicestershire. Ironing and hair hilighting today for me.

Enjoy your days everyone!

Good morning everyone!! A bright and sunny morning here in N Bucks. I seem to be the only person awake in the Broon household (opening my birthday cards!smile)
Wishing you all an equally pleasant day!

Good morning Mick and all, it's fairly bright here in Lancashire, cold though. Heard some geese going over about 5am.
Just a quiet morning, a few plants to put into pots and a visit to Mum this afternoon.
Have a good day everyone.

Morning All

Happy Birthday Broon! flowers

A bit grey here in Norfolk, but brightening. We're off to Sandringham ( caravan park!) today with the caravan to do a bit of birding along the coast. First trip out this season so we're having to think a bit about all the stuff which will now stay inside her for the summer. I know I'll enjoy it when we get there but ..... Am I getting old?

Morning, folks! Boiler trouble on the Boggy Brae yesterday so I'll be contacting the boiler man today. It's just as well we have a solid fuel stove. Depending on the weather and my energy levels I intend to do some monster fuchsia bashing this afternoon or to make some paper pots and sow some seeds.

Happy days, dudes!

Good morning from sunny Colchester, spring is back sunshine

Happy Birthday ๐ŸŽ‚ Broon

Walking Netball today, practising for our first real match on Thursday.
Rest of the day will probably be spent getting over it.

Morning all looks bright at the moment but it is clouding over. Happy birthday Maw Broon. Off to see the practice nurse to have blood pressure taken.

Bright and sunny here, all sorts of things to sort out today after a busy weekend.

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. A lovely sunny start here in South Yorkshire. We are in for a dry week I think. Happy birthday, MawB! No school run for us this week - DD has finished her job and until she gets another we will be redundant sad. I have laundry and a pile of ironing to keep me busy this morning. NfK I envy you your birding day. Love Sheringham. Love Norfolk. Have a good day, folks!

PRINTMISS Mon 13-Mar-17 08:37:49

"OH! what a beautiful morning" yes it is, good morning to you all from a sparkling south east coast, and what a difference it makes, doesn't it? Have no idea what to do today, the washing is on and there is ironing to do, but the weather beckons so might be a trip to look at the sea or the bowls club to catch up with friends. Enjoy your days.

Good morning from SW France. Joyeux Anniversaire, Maw! Hope you will have a lovely day.

Good morning from a lovely sunny Essex by the sea. Off to do food shopping soon. Driving to Gatwick this afternoon to pick up OH, he's been in the South of France this past week, not jealous at all !!!
Happy Birthday MawB, have a lovely day.

TerriBull Mon 13-Mar-17 09:14:17

Good morning, another gorgeous one here in this corner of the south east, it makes up for rainy Sunday. Hope it's going to be as warm as Saturday, which was positively Mediterranean. How the sunshine lifts the spirits.

harrigran Mon 13-Mar-17 09:22:05

Good morning, dry and mild here in the north east. Have to go for chest x-ray today and arrange more blood tests, the joys of being old sad
Happy Birthday MawBroon flowers

Good morning everyone and a very happy birthday wish to MawBroon flowers Sun is shining strongly on my bit of N London today, which is very welcome after a fog & mist weekend at the seaside! Hope you all have a lovely day.

Good morning everyone.
High grey cloud cover over the Tyne Valley this morning. The sun is trying to break through.
DH and I had a day trip to Glasgow yesterday to visit DD and DGC. We all went to the Allergy food show at the SECC. DD went home with lots of free samples. DGS1 had a massive meltdown, we lost him for quite a while, and when we found him, he was minus his shoes. Fortunately someone handed them in, so he didn't have to walk home in stockinged feet.
Conservatory cleaning is on the agenda today. I'd better get started.
Have a good day everyone.

Good morning and happy birthday to mb

Our next door neighbour has an acacia in full bloom rin. He's from Africa so I suspect it reminds him of home, although probably a different species.

Glorious day, so will get out into the garden. Just finished polishing the windows and washing the nets. Will hang out the sheets when they are ready and then house finished with.

Today I plan to start off a couple of dahlia tubers, pot up the plug plants for the summer pots and tidy the greenhouse and if I have time plant a couple of clematis.

Easy dinner today of fish cakes and salad.

Enjoy your spring day everyone
