Morning All

Dark and dry here in Norfolk. It was supposed to rain to water our freshly planted polyanthus in yesterday, but it's still dry so I'll be out with the watering can when it's light. Bet it'll rain then.

Morning Mick nina and all!

It feels very mild here on the south coast and I think yesterday's rain may have gone elsewhere. Too dark to see!

Library and a bit of shopping for me this morning then ironing awaits.

Hope the day is a good one for GNs. sunshine

Good morning from Lancashire, it was absolutely throwing it down when I got up to make tea.
Mum's funeral is over with and I feel relief, the church was almost full. It went smoothly, I must write some thank you cards. I got through my eulogy almost to the end without too much faltering.
Thank you to everyone for encouraging words yesterday, as always GN friends give support that really works.
Have a good day everyone.

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. Still dark but dry in South Yorkshire. However, the forecast is for heavy rain today. DH is painting today and I have some errands that will take me into town. Glad yesterday went off well, Nana3 - these occasions are never easy. Have a good day, folks.

Well done Nana3 for giving your Mum's Eulogy, so brave.

Off to play Rummykub with my WI pals today.

Looks grey but mild in Thames Valley.

NanKate Tue 24-Oct-17 07:30:54

Kitty we must be programmed on the same time scale ?

NannyJan53 Tue 24-Oct-17 07:34:18

Good Morning everyone.

Day of administrative tasks, and a WASPI letter to write, I am on the fourth one now in the cycle of complaints!

Be interesting to hear what you think of the show Mick, as I was thinking of booking for Malvern next year.

Pleased yesterday went well for you Nana3 , always a sad time these occasions.

Hope you all have a good day.

ginny Tue 24-Oct-17 07:37:14

Good morning.

Pleased all went well yesterday Nana3.
Household jobs this morning then off to lunch with a friend. This evening I should finish DGSs quilt at last.

Tea and cake Tue 24-Oct-17 07:43:37

Good morning everyone, I overslept this morning.

Very mild and has just started to rain...

Nana3 flowers. A relief it's over.

Mick you're my theatre critic, don't forget to tell us what it was like.

Have a good day everybody.

Nelliemoser Tue 24-Oct-17 08:11:57

Good morning all. It looks like we could get quite wet today. I am feeling sorry for myself at the moment. Christmas is creeping up on me not the most. And a festive day with a partner who does not do socialising is not much fun.

Marydoll Tue 24-Oct-17 08:22:21

Good morning all, very dark and damp here.
Mick, my DH and I would love to see the show. I hope you enjoy it.
Nana, I'm glad you got through yesterday.
Nelliemoser, I'm sorry you are a bit low.
We are off out to the builders to discuss extending our downstairs loo into a shower room, as I'm struggling getting in and out the bath. I'm trying to prepare for the future now, before it is too late.

Pittcity Tue 24-Oct-17 08:28:14

Good morning from a warm damp Colchester. I am longing for crisp winter days now!
Walking into town with DS this morning to get his eyes tested.

Tippy22 Tue 24-Oct-17 08:36:49

Cool, grey and damp here in East Sussex. Five birthday cards and presents to post today then I can make a start on Christmas. Glad everything went well Nana3. Enjoy your day everyone.

Mapleleaf Tue 24-Oct-17 09:29:22
