Good morning Mick, and everyone.
I'm lying in bed reading through GN, something I never get a chance to do, it's bliss. We are on holiday in Portugal and DH has been blundering about since 5.45am, getting ready to play golf. I have given up trying to sleep.
I hope all those with partners and family who are Ill find the strength to get through today.

Morning Mick, Mary, all.

It's grey in North Leicestershire but the forecast is for quite a nice day.

We had no rain yesterday while the Memory Walk was on but the wind did start to threaten the gazebos housing the stalls.

I'd like to point out that I didn't actually do the walk - I just manned the information point!!

Shopping today at an enormous discount store not too far away.

Good morning everyone.

Wind was howling round like a Hammer Horror last night but just a slight breeze this morning. Cloud building up, will probably be murky again. Lucky you Marydoll, hope it's nice and warm.

Wishes to all for a peaceful and pleasant day

Good morning from Lancashire, it's looking very grey and I can hear the wind in the chimney.
Visiting Mum this morning, she's not pretending to know me anymore. A WI event this afternoon if I feel up to it, I will make an effort.
Have a good day everyone.

Morning all! It looks as if it might brighten up so I am risking doing the laundry and hanging it out.

Need to go to the library and get some "bobs and bits" (as my
youngest DGD used to call it) this morning too.

Hope there are happy days in store for all GNs. sunshine

H and are both booked for a flu jab this morning.

Good morning from a brightening Colchester. White fluffy clouds and looking better than yesterday.
House is quiet and clean now that DGSs have gone home.
Walking Netball this morning.

Morning All. An Eeyore morning in our corner of Somerset, gloomy, gloomy and just started to rain. I'm a bit gloomy too as sleep was elusive. Hope your visit isn't too difficult nana3 and you make it to the WI later. Need to be better organised than I have been lately, Granny detail later so need an early, cooked lunch. Hope Monday is kind to everyone.

Good morning, it is a bright and windy morning here in the north east.
Didn't see the family yesterday but GD sent photograph of the cupcakes that she baked smile

Morning everyone. I am back from a visit to Barcelona- what an amazing place! So sad that their referendum wasn't peaceful - the demonstrations were such happy events in the few days earlier.

A beautiful sunny morning here in Essex by the sea. OH who, as usual, has been up half the night has just gone back to bed. He is 2 1/2 weeks post hip revision and although still on crutches and no weight bearing is able to do a little more each day.
We stayed in yesterday waiting for an A...z....n delivery so will venture out, albeit, VERY slowly today.
Hope everyone has a good Monday.

Good morning, everyone.
It's a lovely bright morning here in South Yorkshire, but very windy. The wind is making it feel quite cold.
Off to coffee group later this morning and Fellowship tonight, so a busy day.
🌺 Nana3 and try to go to the WI event this afternoon, if you can.
Take care, GN's.

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. I have only just woken up having slept the sleep of the dead. Having seen Maple's weather for hereabouts, I think I'll stay put. But I have ironing to do, so that won't work will it? There are many things you can do lying down, but ironing is not one of them!
Nana3 💐💐. Make the WI if you can. Have a good day, folks.
