Good morning everyone,
It's grey, dark and damp outside this morning in South Yorkshire.
Got some baking to do later, but otherwise a quiet day in store.
Enjoy your day. 🙂

Good morning, Maple and all GNs. Nothing to add to your weather report, and, like you, an in day. Having now sorted out our tech problems we are going to put up our Christmas tree and it’s lights. The decs will wait until GS comes at the weekend. A promise is a promise! Have a good day, folks.

Nina, that is so awful. I hope your daughter gets it sorted quickly.
It's very wet and cold here in Glasgow. I've been up since six, couldn't sleep, so the soup is made and letters to put in Christmas cards all written .
Have a good day everyone and hope your eyes are improving Kitty.

Good morning from sunny Colchester. Cold and windy but the sun is shining brightly. Amazing how that cheers me up.
MIL has been transferred to a Community Hospital, she is 93 with Alzheimers and has a leg fracture due to a fall. This means a shorter journey for us to visit and it is just across the road from DH's sister. That makes things a bit easier and DH seems happier this morning.

Greyduster Thu 14-Dec-17 09:27:33

Nina what a nightmare! I hope it all gets sorted soon!

Nana3 Thu 14-Dec-17 09:30:50

Good morning. Rain in the night but fine now in Lancashire. A bit of house clearing at Mum's and supermarket shopping this morning. High Street shopping this afternoon. Book club this evening. Busy day.
Sorry to hear about your DD 's problem nina.
Have a good day everyone.

Morning All

After a freezing, dank, wet start the sun is now out in Norfolk.

DH has headed off into Norwich on a mystery trip. I suspect he's thought of something to buy me for Christmas! I have stuff to take to the charity shop, then off to make teas for the panto again and then round to the DC to collect Christmas presents for our trip to DD1 at the weekend via a couple of shops. I have a list.

Morning everyone! It's sunny and mild here on the south coast - much more to my liking.

I've just marzipanned the cake after our usual Thursday supermarket trip. There were loads of the "chariots" used by the on-line order pickers blocking the aisles so I reckon the Christmas rush is under way now.

This weekend I plan to do the present wrapping - not my favourite job as the sellotape always starts being difficult!

Enjoy your day everyone! sunshine
