Morning Mick, morning all!

It's still dark in North Leicestershire but doesn't feel cold.

Where are you going today, Mick?

We are going to Leamington Spa for lunch!

Thinking about Maw today.

Morning Mick, Kitty, Everyone

I just had a peer around the curtains and it looks as if it could be a bit misty out there. The forecast did say it would be warming up.

Nothing planned for today apart from a swim with an appointment for an X-Ray on my knee. First step to a new one hopefully. Eventually. I'm aiming at next Easter!

Good morning Mick, Kitty and everyone.

Looks like a pleasant, sunny day here in Malta, although at this time of year anything can happen during the course of a day.

I'm off to the gym, then hairdresser, then meeting a pal for coffee.

Hope you all have a good day. sunshine

Morning Mick and Kitty.

Dark and a bit milder in the Thames Valley.

Kitty Have a lovely time in Leamington. As a child I used to live near there and my Dad had a cinema in the town. I remember visiting the Jepherson Gardens, I hope they are still there as they were lovely. Enjoy your lunch. And you have fun too Mick.

NanKate Tue 05-Dec-17 07:03:14

Morning to you Bella enjoy the sunshine.

Gagagran Tue 05-Dec-17 07:33:26

Morning everyone! Feels mild and looks dark still so no real idea what the weather is like here on the south coast.

Enjoy your outings Kitty , Nfk Bella and anyone else venturing out. DH is off to his bike club Christmas lunch today so I am going to do some of the jobs I've been putting off. It's somehow easier to get on with things when he's out!

Enjoy your day everyone! sunshine

Morning all.

It's mild in Kent this morning, just grey and boring really.
We are off to do some food shopping in the next town later, and the exciting bit, we need to buy a new loo seat !! tchsmile

Good Morning all, here in the Loch Lomond National Park it's still dark and heavy rain. Mist on the mountains so can't see the tops. It's 7c just now, tropical for this time of year. Have a good day everyone flowers

Good morning from a grey skied Colchester. I'm still full of cold so not venturing far today.

annsixty Tue 05-Dec-17 08:18:58

Good morning all.
Just popping by to ask if you will pick one up for me nina and then get your H to pop up north and fix it for me.
I am sliding all over when I sit on mine.

Greyduster Tue 05-Dec-17 08:20:50

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. We are in for a rather drab, probably wet, day today. I have the dentist this morning, and then I have to pick up a game I have ordered and then go to the library. Sorry your cold is hanging on, Pitt. Have a good day, folks.

Greyduster Tue 05-Dec-17 08:24:53

I used to be able to change a loo seat, Ann but I wouldn’t know how to start now. You can’t actually see the fixing on modern ones.

Nelliemoser Tue 05-Dec-17 08:32:15

Good morning All. rather grey skies, At least I am not dashing off early to mind the grandson today.

It's a 50mile journey that takes over an hour and a half. We had fun though two yr olds are good company. I miss the seeing so much of the new school boy though.

cornergran Tue 05-Dec-17 08:35:27

Morning All. Its grey again in our corner of Somerset, rain forecast later. A Christmas tea this afternoon, this morning I will finish the flipping cards. Hope Tuesday is kind to everyone.

Sar53 Tue 05-Dec-17 08:59:45

Good morning all. Grey and dull in Essex by the sea, quite miserable really.
Have had plumbers here this morning making a mess !!! Once they've gone I shall be clearing up. What fun.
Kitty, my eldest daughter lives in Leamington, I was there last week, lovely town with some great restaurants, enjoy your lunch.

harrigran Tue 05-Dec-17 09:10:53

Good morning, relatively mild here in the north east.
Wrote all my Christmas cards yesterday afternoon while DH was at a funeral, I had to wait in because sister was going to visit but she sent her DH instead.
Shopping today, my excitement knows no bounds.

NannyJan53 Tue 05-Dec-17 09:12:15

Good Morning all

I didn't wake up until 8.30! Dull and grey here today.

Making a batch of meatballs this morning to take to my daughters for their evening meal, then I babysit whilst they go out.

I went to my first U3A meeting yesterday. Lifestyle class, which was about Looking after your Hearing. Bit late for me as I wear hearing aids, but was interesting to be able to take part and share my experience of hearing loss. I walked to the venue which took half an hour, but was good to get the exercise and bumped up my steps a treat smile

We go on the train to Leamington Spa fairly often kitty, love it there.

Have a lovely day everyone

ninathenana Tue 05-Dec-17 09:32:58

ann he would willing do it if closer.

Nana3 Tue 05-Dec-17 09:45:18

Good morning from Lancashire where it's grey and sure to rain. More paperwork this morning, nice bath and hair wash first though.
Pittcity have you tried Vicks?
Have a good day everyone.

Mapleleaf Tue 05-Dec-17 11:14:48

Morning everyone.
Been up a long time, but forgot to post earlier.
It's a grey, dismal, cold morning here and a bit breezy.
Must try to get my cards started properly today. I've sent the ones for abroad, but no others yet. I can't seem to motivate myself to do it.
Not a lot planned today, so I just might get on with those cards! 😄

ginny Tue 05-Dec-17 11:17:06

A rather late Good Morning !
Not a bad day but dull here in N. Bucks. Have been out to buy stuff for Dd2s birthday cake which I am making. Quick tidy up and then some Christmas sewing to do.
Out this evening with 2 of my DDs to see a live streaming of ‘ The Nutcracker ‘ .
