Good Morning Mick and all who follow.

Too dark to see outside but I think we are promised another pleasant day. Isn't it good to see some sun after all the gloom and rain?

Chores today and taxi-ing DGD again. We have become her Uber but she is always so appreciative we really don't mind.

Hope the day is a good one for all GNs. sunshine

Morning all!

It is still dark in North Leicestershire but seems quiet and not too cold.

We went out for lunch yesterday with DD2 and then had some time with her girls and are, therefore, jiggered!! I must stir my stumps as I have to do my big shop and we are expecting a plumber to change some washers and to stop our loo randomly flushing!

Happy birthday, nina, have a super day and enjoy your dinner.

Hope the Burns lunch goes well and no one gets arrested!!

DH proposed 49 years ago today! shock Obviously, I was only 12 at the time!!!

Morning All. Still very dark in our corner of Somerset. Looks dry, all I know. Happy birthday nina, enjoy your day and your steak smile. Special day for you as well kitty. Couldn’t tell you the date Mr C proposed blush. Day four of visitors. Enjoying their company but quite frankly shattered. Why do people insist on eating? Hope Friday is kind to everyone.

Nana3 Fri 26-Jan-18 07:28:36

Good morning. Happy Birthday nina. I hope you all have a good time in Edinburgh. Enjoy your day everyone.

Bellasnana Fri 26-Jan-18 07:31:38

Good morning from Malta. It’s cloudy and the high today is expected to be 16C, so not very warm.

Many happy returns of the day, ninathenana, hope you enjoy it. flowers

Hope the day goes well for everyone sunshine

mollie Fri 26-Jan-18 07:33:38

Morning Mick and all. It’s still darkish out but I can see any serious weather so that’s good. I spent all yesterday staring at family history records and thoroughly enjoyed myself but ai think I need to move about a bit today. Perhaps I’ll go push a trolley around the supermarket. Or maybe investigate the garden centre. Decisions, decisions...

Can you send your plumber my way please kittylester, my shower is leaking. Thank you smile

Have a good day all

Marydoll Fri 26-Jan-18 07:36:37

Good morning all,
A frosty morning here in Glasgow.
Up early too, as off to meet Baggs, Jangran and Old Goat at Waverley station. So looking forward to the meet up, especially now the landslide train problem has been resolved.
Happy birthday Nina and happy anniversary Kitty
My BIL got home from hospital yesterday, (probably too soon), so DH is planning a day of indulgence, as no hospital visits and I won't be back until late from Edinburgh. smile. I think he is more excited than I am grin

NanKate Fri 26-Jan-18 07:37:09

Morning Mick Kitty and All.

Have a super Birthday Nina . Steak and perhaps a nice glass of Merlot or two as well I hope.

Congratulations to you Kitty and MrKitty today. Perhaps a little tipple and nice meal is in order for you tonight too ?

Nothing special planned today so I have no excuse not to do that dratted paperwork sorting.

loopyloo Fri 26-Jan-18 07:56:45

Mawbroon. You have solar panels! Are you please with them? Did you have them installed ? We're they worth the money?
Oh and Good morning everyone. Looks like a reasonable day.
Hope you all have a good day.

MawBroon Fri 26-Jan-18 08:08:18

Greyduster Fri 26-Jan-18 08:13:50

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. Happy birthday, Nina. A dull start in South Yorkshire. We are supposed to be having a(nother) walking day but I had such a bad night I have no enthusiasm for it. Have a good day, folks.

Good Morning all

Just back from gym, as had to drop Partner to train station so thought I may as well go early and get it out of the way.

Was popping over to Mums today, but she has rung to say she has this dreaded lurgy.

So, today is some housework, and making a curry for dinner tonight, going to try the Tom Kerridge low fat Chicken Tikka that he made in the week.

Wishing you a very happy birthday ninathenana have a great day flowers.

Have a good day everyone
