Morning Mick and everybody! Think it's cold and it's certainly dark here on the south coast but we are promised some sunshine this morning.

Library and a bit of shopping this morning. Must remember my gloves.

Morning Mick, morning gaga, morning all.

It's dark and cold in North Leicestershire too.

We are having 2 poorly dgc today - they have been off all week with really bad coughs. I foresee lots of cuddly TV watching!

A friend is coming for dinner this evening.

Good morning from N Bucks-I think I heard the birds coughing outside so I suppose it IS morning?
Pitch black and cold though.
Wishing you a pleasant day.

Silly I know, but today's local paper will carry the story of my father in law being given a national award for his work and I'm so excited I'm off to the shop to buy it. He's very modest and wouldn't permit me to inform the paper, but happily one of the handful of friends who knew about it had no such compunction.

Good morning everyone

Cold and frosty here, well on car windscreen anyway.

grannyactivist glad your FIL has had his due recognition.

Off to the shops later today. Can't believe it's Friday already.

Stay warm everyone

Good morning all. Shopping to do how unexciting can that be. I really need to get a life.

Good Morning everyone.

Slight frost here. Partners Daugther (1 one twins) is coming from London tonight for the weekend. She recently moved there after securing a job after completing her Masters! So expensive to live there though!

So today I am cooking and baking smile and a bit of housework.

Yesterday was the first day I felt human after my bout of Shingles.

Have a great day and weekend all

Good morning Mick and everyone. Sounds as though winter has come in the UK. Take care on those icy pavements, Mick.

Hope your littlies feel better soon, kitty. Enjoy your cuddles.

How lovely, GrannyA, congrats to your FiL.

Hardly dare mention the weather here, but it is very mild even for Malta at this time of year.

Really need to tackle the ironing as I have been putting it off so long there is now a mountain of it. Oh well, keeps me busy I suppose.

Hope you all have a good day and keep warm sunshine

Marydoll Fri 24-Nov-17 07:57:36

Morning all. Bellasnana, how lucky to be living in Malta, one of our favourite places.
Off to Country Living Christmas Fayre in Glasgow. I hope the rain stays off later, as we will be walking back from the station later.
Enjoy your day all.

Good morning, it is frosty and very cold.
Woke up during the night with dreadful backache, I think I overdid the physio yesterday.
Going shopping for DS's birthday present, his list reads pretty much the same as the year he was 15.
Congratulations to ga's FIL.

ginny Fri 24-Nov-17 08:06:06

Good morning.
Dull but dry and no wind today.
Sliming world meeting then some housework. Baby sitting this evening.
Have a good Friday all.

Morning All

Bright, still and decidedly chilly in Norfolk.
Overslept as I was awake a lot last night. No idea why. Off to art class this morning and then we have the switching on of the Christmas lights in town this evening. I think an offspring or two may come with us but it depends how tired the DGC are. DGS hates going to bed so is usually dropping on his feet by Friday.

Pittcity Fri 24-Nov-17 08:24:07

Good morning from a brightening Colchester. Forecast is for cold and sunny this weekend.
Not going near today to avoid the 'Black Friday' mayhem but may browse for bargain Christmas stuff online.

Greyduster Fri 24-Nov-17 08:37:32

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. It must have been cold last night as the heating kicked in at three o’clock. There is frost on the fields this morning but the sky is blue and the sun is shining. I must do some ironing this morning. Congrats to your FiL, grannyA. Have a good day, folks.

Mapleleaf Fri 24-Nov-17 08:37:59

Good morning everyone.
It's a beautiful morning here in South Yorkshire, though very cold.
Off to Harrogate later. Looking forward to that.
Enjoy your day. 🙂

ninathenana Fri 24-Nov-17 08:44:22

Morning all
Got up at 5 am and fell asleep in the chair down stairs.
It's bright and mild in Kent, no frost here .
H is off to London at lunchtime and not back until tomorrow evening so I will be indulging myself, how, I don't know yet.

annodomini Fri 24-Nov-17 09:29:08

Good morning all. The car is covered with ice this morning.
