Good Morning Everyone,
Its grey but windy and bright here in Brackley this morning.

Good morning Mick and all. Miserable here in Renfrewshire, I hope it clears up, so that we can get out with the pram. Yesterday was exhausting with DGD, stuck inside, as she is bumping into everything. Have a good day everyone.

Grey in Kent too. H and I are having lunch with friends who are visiting from France where they moved 6 mths ago.

Morning Mick, morning all. A bit cloudy at the moment, but looks to be breaking up and is forecast to be warm later on here in south Yorks with perhaps an odd shower. Just watching a cat perusing his territory. I keep an eye on him and chase him off if he starts to annoy the birds. His owner has put on a collar with a bell on. Don't know where he lives, but he makes a regular appearance in my garden. Not sure how to discourage him really. Don't want to frighten him. Any ideas?

Good morning Mick and everyone. Grey and breezy start in Lancashire but the weather forecast says the sun will come out. Visiting mum this morning, she does say some strange things, she asked me if I'd seen my mum sad.
Going on a WI outing this afternoon.
Hope you all feel well and have a good day.

Started very promising but has clouded over since.
Dog having strip and wash and brush up today - so not good day for him.
Im in garden.

Good morning all.

It's a grey start in North Leicestershire but the forecast is for warm sunshine later. I'll keep my fingers crossed as I am meeting DD1 for lunch at a pub with outside tables overlooking the river! wine

Enjoy your days everyone.sunshine

Good morning from sunny Colchester. Going to be another lovely day here.
Spreading the word about Gransnet at a meeting this morning and enjoying the sun this afternoon.

Good morning, overcast this morning but a mild 13 degrees.
Mapleleaf we stopped all cats entering our garden when we erected a metal fence, they can't get a grip on the smooth surface, garden has been cat-poo free now for more than five years.

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. We have some fitful early sunshine peeping through. I had a good night's sleep 👍. Nothing much on the cards today except to plant a couple of shrubs we bought yesterday, and to nip up to M&S to buy some shoes. As for your cat, Maple, buy a water pistol - but you'll have sneak up on it! Have a happy day folks!

Good morning from Liverpool picking GD up from pre-school this morning, will probably be baking this afternoon.

Morning All. Grey, wet and windy in our corner of Somerset. No sunshine here. sad. Cleaning this morning then not much really. Hope Thursday is kind to everyone.

Tippy22 Thu 30-Mar-17 08:00:57

Very grey here in Sussex although the forecast is good. Must try and have a more productive day today than yesterday. Enjoy your day everyone.

PRINTMISS Thu 30-Mar-17 08:12:43

In our part of Sussex we have hazy sunshine, and I think, like you Tippy the forecast is for a bright day, so the washing is on. Hairdresser coming at lunch time - heaven knows wwhy I agreed to that time, a very senior moment . Enjoy your days.

Thin high cloud here in Norfolk this morning. I'm a bit stiff after a long night but my leg size seems to be decreasing so I'm happy. A friend is calling in for coffee this morning. she leads an exciting life so I can't wait to catch up!

Mapleleaf. Cat deterrent - There's a gadget you can get which attaches to the hose pipe. It has a sensor on it and squirts a jet of water when the cat breaks the beam. I bought DH one last year. We move it around the garden so our marauder (ginger Tom from three doors away) has to concentrate on where it is instead of the birds. The only problem is remembering where it is so you don't set it off yourself! The GC love it too!

Morning all. Pouring rain here on Wirral and some of my lovely double headed daffodils have their heads right down in the mud. Won't have time to do anything about it when the rain stops today as doing the school run and childminding in grandchildren's home until late this evening.
