Good Morning Mick Kitty and Mary and all who follow. It's mild and dry here on the south coast but the forecast is for frost tonight. My poor plants don't know where they are!

My car needs a clean inside (and out) too Kitty but I am trying to hang on until its imminent service as they do a brilliant valet clean too.

Hope the day is a good one for everybody. sunshine

Good morning from Malta. It’s cloudy at present but may brighten up later.

I’m going to my friend’s this morning to print off some papers. My printer doesn’t work, so she is kindly helping me out. Also need to take Buzz for his kennel cough vaccine, it is required for him to go into kennels next month.

Later, visiting another friend in hospital. She is making slow progress after breaking her hip eight weeks ago. It is very boring for her as she can hardly see, is quite deaf and can only move about when the physio’s come to help her.

Does anyone else think the weeks fly too quickly? Can’t believe we are at the end of January already.

Have a good day, folks. sunshine

Good morning everybody. There are some beautiful salmon pink “Simpson’s” type clouds on a blue background. What a pity that probably indicates more rain (“red sky in the morning...”) but it is good to see daylight here in N Bucks.
My car came back from its service washed and beautifully hoovered out - at over £600 I should think so! I usually go to the “East European” car wash where for about £10 or 12 I can get the same while I wait. Best tenner you ever spent!

Good morning Mick and all. Another red sky here in West Norfolk.

Such an exciting day ahead: trying to track down a plumber (the words ‘rare’ and ‘hens teeth’ come to mind), books to the library, a few things from the supermarket, washing into the machine...I need an adventure or two!

Have a good one everybody!

Good morning. I’m off to the gym (yuk) and will visit my mother before going to my art class. Three hours of peace and calm in a busy week.

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. Grey and cold in South Yorkshire this morning. Rain expected. DH is painting today. I shall watch and point out the bits he’s missed, I expect 😊. That’s after I have cleaned my oven and done the ironing ☹️! Have a good day folks.

Morning All. Broken cloud - mostly black - in our corner of Somerset. Rain forecast. Cleaning and sorting today. My comment in similar situations is ‘shall I help you with the fine tuning?’ greyd. - gets a mixed response grin. Hope Monday is kind to everyone.

Good morning, rain in Lancashire.
My iPad is always shutting down, very frustrating.
Have a good day everyone.

Anniebach Mon 29-Jan-18 08:29:58

Good morning all. Rain forecast for today , how unusual !

ninathenana Mon 29-Jan-18 08:30:17

Morning all.

Had a lie in this morning so as it's light I can tell you it's cloudy and windy in Kent.
I quiet envy you busy people, I have another 'nothing' day ahead apart from the usual chores.

Tippy22 Mon 29-Jan-18 08:35:21

Morning everyone. Another grey day here in East Sussex. DH has succumbed to the lurgy so off to the chemist for more Lemsip and cough medicine. Enjoy your day everyone.

Greyduster Mon 29-Jan-18 08:35:39

Nice one Corner - I’ll try that!

appygran Mon 29-Jan-18 08:40:12

Good morning all. Rain hammering on the windows here but I am still tucked up in bed after a restless night coughing. Lazy day for me today.

Pittcity Mon 29-Jan-18 08:42:22

Good morning from a cloudy and windy Colchester. Double figure temperatures again today then back to freezing tonight.
Walking Netball this morning and DD2 and DGS2 are spending the day with us.

NannyJan53 Mon 29-Jan-18 08:45:19

Good morning all

Dropping Partner to train station, then off to gym.

Depending on the weather I may join the 'Walking for Health' group this afternoon, run in conjunction with Age Concern and Dudley Council. I think most local authorities run these?

Have a good Monday all.

millymouge Mon 29-Jan-18 08:57:24

Good morning from a cloudy and windy Essex. DH out today so will concentrate on housework if I can. Have a heavy cold and a runny nose so may decide that a day by the fire with a book would be a better idea. Have a good day everyone.

Nelliemoser Mon 29-Jan-18 09:35:10

Good morning All. It's P****ng down here in Cheshire. I am so pleased I managed to get out and do some useful gardening yesterday.
Not a day for OH to finish clearing out the compost heap.

Good morning everyone,
Very wet at the moment, but the sky is looking a bit brighter in the distance, maybe it will stop raining later?

Enjoy your day.
