Morning All

Clear as a bell in Norfolk. Really glad the forecast fog looks as if it’s just further south (according to the weather map) so we should be clear on our trip to Cambridge, apart from a bit of mist. DiL has tests at Addenbrookes which could take all day. Deep joy.

Morning Mick and NFK,

Dry here in Glasgow, seems a bit milder.
Childminding today, so off out with DGD to pick up a few things, then hairdresser.
Have a good day all.
I hope your DIL's day isn't too stressful.

Good morning, Michael and all GNs, and good morning, Nfk. Hope your DiL’s tests go okay. It is still dark in South Yorkshire but set to be dry today. We have one or two bits of shopping to do and I need a new top, so a trip into town is called for. Have a good day folks!

MorningMick Nfk and everyone.

All I can say is we have no wind or fog and it's quiet mild in Kent. Too dark for much else.
We saw Star Wars yesterday, loved it.
Sad to say D has no day off this week due to covering sickness so pressie exchanging will have to be after 25th.

Morning all!

It's not foggy in North Leicestershire but it is cold! Wrapping and a trip to the farm shop for some of their lovely potato gratin towers for the freezer - just in case!

I hope things go well for your DiL, nfk.

Morning all! It's frosty again here on the south coast but no sign of any fog. Keep hoping that the increase in temperature we have been promised really occurs.

It's the High School concert tonight and both DGC have prominent parts so we are going to watch and wallow in pride and joy!

Enjoy your days all GNs. sunshine

Cold, crisp and bright on South Downs. No wind.

Shopping today for last minute presents and stuff for Mum.

Just in from feeding the birds, and the garden looks neglected, so must pull my finger out as soon as time allows. The trouble is this time of year the weather rules.

Gamekeepers pie for supper.
