Good Morning Everyone,
Its dull and grey start here in Brackley this morning may have had overnight frost as well.

Good morning Mick. Dull and cool here, but at least it's not raining.
Tiring day yesterday, so some supermarket shopping and catch up on the housework, while DH plays golf. I will enjoy having the house to myself and playing MY music.
Have a good day everyone.

Good morning Mick, morning Mary, morning all!

We have had rain overnight in North Leicestershire bit it is a bright clear morning. Yet more desk work and then a visit from DD3 and children to here all about their trip to Eurodisney!

Where are you Marydoll?

Marydoll Fri 28-Apr-17 07:28:57

Renfrewshire. I love how many grans are looking for rain and we just want it to stop raining.grin

Good morning to you all, a little overcast here this morning and Marydoll we had rain last night, not a lot, and I am not sure if it penetrated the soil, but it did rain. We are off to have a boat ride and fish and chips on the Chichester Canal later on. A lovely ride, very soothing. Enjoy your days.

Good morning from sunny Colchester. It did rain here yesterday afternoon but none forecast here today.
Today is DH's last day at work before retirement. We are celebrating with a curry in town tonight and he is then off fishing in France for a week.

Good morning, sunny and dry but cold here.
We went into town yesterday and got a soaking, the upside was we were did what we needed to do and were home within an hour. Nothing like icy rain to focus the mind.

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. A lovely sunny day in prospect in South Yorkshire. We had rain overnight. We are planning a drive out to Bakewell, but it will depend on how my leg is when I get up. I couldn't get out yesterday and was climbing the walls. Have a good day, folks.

Morning All

Sunshine and showers (cold ones) here again in Norfolk.

Nothing planned for today, but I think we need to find the house. It's vanishing under un-read newspapers, abandoned shoes, dust and ironing.

Good morning all

Morning All from an grey-ish corner of Somerset. Mundane sort of day today, food shop and a bit of organising. Hope Friday is kind to everyone.

Morning,all. As Greyduster says, looks like a sunny day in prospect. The heavier rain last night was much needed, for the plants and grass were looking a bit sad, but the rain has perked them up. We even had a few rumbles of thunder about 7pm.
Hoping to get out soon for a nice walk. Enjoy the day, everyone.

Nana3 Fri 28-Apr-17 09:12:26

Good morning all, sunny this morning in Lancashire but still cold.
Visiting mum this morning, yesterday she asked me for her earrings but she hasn't worn any for a few years so I doubt if I will get them in, ouch.
DGC coming to stay this evening.
Hope your leg is better today Gd.
Have a good day everyone.

Good morning from the south east. I think the weather is getting better and the sun is half in half out, but may be fully out later. I have recovered from my root canal experience yesterday, but am still getting over the cost, horrendous shock Am also beginning to realise how much dental and eye care all mounts up as one gets older.

Greyduster hope you get to Bakewell, it's so lovey and I had the best piece of Bakewell tart ever there, which was most appropriate.

alex57currie Fri 28-Apr-17 09:35:28

Mornin' all.

flowers for rubylady. Hope all is on the up today?

Nana3, hope your mum is well? Good luck with the earrings. Vanity eh? Enjoy your Dgc this weekend.

Morning Carol & oldcroc. You know who you aregrin.

grannylyn65 Fri 28-Apr-17 09:35:58

Don't talk to me about dental!

Greyduster Fri 28-Apr-17 09:37:06

Well, I am not going to Bakewell after all. I am going to take my leg (well, both of them actually but one wants to go and the other doesn't want to go anywhere!!) to the doctors. Managed to get an appointment this morning - miracles do happen!
