Good Morning Everyone,

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. Still very dark in South Yorkshire this morning, but dry at least. Things are a bit up in the air at the moment - we thought GS was spending part of the day with us today, but so far no-one has let us know whether he is or not, so we are currently in limbo. I have been up since silly o’clock, so will have to have matchsticks to keep my eyelids open soon.

Morning Mick, morning Gd, morning all.

It's wet, windy but mild in North Leicestershire.

It's my birthday today (69!!!) so we are going out for lunch.

Sorry you didn't sleep well, gd and hope you are out of limbo soon.

Happy birthday J52!!

Morning Mick Gd and Kitty - and Happy Birthday too Kitty!

It is mild and damp and dark here on the south coast and we are still recovering from the lurgy. DH had a relapse yesterday and STILL hasn't managed a ride on his new Christmas bike.

I have to go to the library and pick up my repeat prescriptions this morning but little else planned. Think DD might call to see her Dad as it's so unusual for him to be out of action.

Hope the day is a good one for all GNs and that you have a
lovely day Kitty. sunshine

Morning all.

Happy Birthday kitty
Too dark to tell much about the weather but I don't hear wind or rain.
We are off to Warners for a long weekend so I won't be here until Tuesday.
Enjoy your weekends.

Good morning Mick and all.
Happy birthday Kitty, I hope you have a lovely day..
I had to go down and turn the heating down, so it must be milder than yesterday!
We have DGD unexpectedly this morning, as her mum isn't feeling too well.
We will do some baking and then get the industrial cleaners in afterwards to clear up the mess. smile. It will be worth it, as she loves baking.

Good morning everyone from a dark and cold Essex by the sea.
Happy Birthday Kitty, have a lovely day.
Hopefully a less stressful day today after waiting yesterday to hear of the birth of my fifth granddaughter . She was born at 15.39 yesterday afternoon. Her elder sister is besotted says my daughter. Hoping they will be home today and I can go and have cuddles tomorrow.
Enjoy your day.

Good morning all, on yet another dark one here in Stockport.
Happy day to the birthday girls.
Just need to do some food shopping today, I never used to look on it as a chore but now I hate it, a necessary evil.

It's grey but dry in my corner of Northumberland, and also rather cold. Nothing much planned other than a beef and mushroom curry.
Have a good day all.

All quiet on the (Swiss) Western front - some sun even this morning. Will go for a walk this pm with dogs to see our local waterfall - so much water!
