Morning Mick and*kittylester*, Morning all.
It was still raining here when I got up. Seems to have stopped now but very wet and grey. Supposed to brighten up later. It was very cold and wet in Leeds yesterday - glad to get back home!

Morning All

It's quite a bright morning here in Norwich although clouding over. Not a good night last night - I had to take the offered morphine to get to sleep. Shan't be able to have any at home. A day of pottering apparently, and I get to have a shower!

Have fun at your training/seminars Kitty and Pitt

Just stopped raining here in East Sussex after almost 24 hours of continual rain. Waiting in all day for a delivery which my husband says is part of my birthday present. Should be interesting.

Good morning, Mick and ladies. Blustery day here with rain forecast later. The vines need it! nfk glad morphine helped you sleep, but, yes, it is a temporary measure. We attended one of those seminars, Pitt; hope you get more out of it than we did!
nina, hugs. Can feel your pain. flowers

Good Morning all sunny here in Cheshire.
I have to finish packing today as I am flying off to Iceland tomorrow on a Geology trip with my group of "usual suspects".

It's an organised group I have been going with for years and I always meet someone I have been on holiday with before.
It takes me ages to round up my belongings. Off right now to grab my spare glasses from the car while I remember.

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. A dry and brightening prospect in South Yorkshire this morning, but cold. Another sleepless night for me so I am on a go slow today, but need to stock up the larder sometime later.
Enjoy your shower NfK - funny how the we miss the things we most take for granted!
Have a good day, folks.

Greyduster Thu 23-Mar-17 08:30:32

Good morning everyone . The sun is trying to break through here in Northamptonshire and hoping it succeeds!
Thinking of you Nina flowers

We've arrived. It's a tfl seminar specific to DHs job so we will at least sign up for perks. They are not trying to sell us anything. Free tea and biscuits so far.

Good morning everyone.
Yesterday's snow didn't last long, it was gone by lunchtime, to be replaced by rain. It's not much better this morning, the Tyne Valley is still wet, but it isn't raining at the moment. I must go and buy a birthday card for my sister today. Other than that, just the usual pottering around for me.
Have a good day everyone.
