Morning Mick and All.

A lovely sunny day in South Bucks.

Off to Keep Fit first time in about 5 weeks, I am sure I will be jiggered later.

We have a family of blue tits in our bird box. I didnโ€™t see the parents going in and out yesterday so I am a bit worried. Do you know when they usually fledge ?

Morning Mick NanKate and everyone.

Blue sky in Kent but windy too. DGS2 has appointment in London today about his op to repair cleft pallet. They finally agreed DD is not neurotic and there is something wrong !

Morning Mick, morning Kate, morning all.

It's another lovely start in North Leicestershire and there is no rain in the forecast for the whole of this week - a mixed blessing as we have done a lot of planting lately so we will have to water every evening.

How lovely to have a blue tit family, Kate, keep us posted about their well being.

Morning All

A bright, slightly breezy, sunny morning here in north Norfolk.

A lot of potting up to do today as all the primulas have now been removed from the town square tubs and are too good to throw away so we're selling them to raise funds. There's quite a few!

NanKate Mon 14-May-18 06:54:06

Thanks Nina ๐Ÿ•Š

Good Morning everyone!

It's blue sky and sunshine here on the south coast and feels warmer. We both have dental check ups this morning and then need a trip to the supermarket for petrol and some bits. What an exciting thought.

Hope the day is a good one for all GNs sunshine

Good morning all, Sunny, but cool in Glasgow.
We have DDG today and it's my birthday, so off out down the coast for lunch. What more could a girl ask for?
Nina, I hope all goes well with your grandson today.

Many happy returns, Marydoll, I wish you a very happy day.๐ŸŽ‚

I believe it promises to be a lovely day so I shall finish putting teak preservative on the garden furniture this morning, hang a second load of washing out and perhaps even enjoy a brew in the sun.

Happy Birthday Marydoll ๐ŸŽ‚

Just reporting in that I have seen mum and dad blue tit bombing in and out of nest box.

Panache Mon 14-May-18 08:32:21

Good Morning to you one and all.

Indeed another of our lovely days it would seem with a light mist hiding the sun at the moment.

Having a lovely short country walk does not seem to have caused any further hazards to this leg, whilst our little car drive into an area of countryside unfamiliar to us gave me such utter delight.It is right in the heart of the greener areas and the hedgeows were altogether blue with such swathes of the beautiful bluebell...........it really was a treat.

Back to the Surgery ....again.

Have yourself a special day Marydoll,Happy birthday to you.

Wishing you all a very uplifting day and peaceful day and week.

Good morning everyone from a sunny Essex by the sea. Not a lot planned for today apart from a check up later this afternoon for OH with his Oncologist, he's been in remission for over two years now so this (fingers crossed) should be a formality.
Many happy returns marydoll, have a lovely birthday.

Good Morning from a sunny west Cheshire.
We have our 20 month old DGS here today, so we'll probably spend most of the day on the prom/beach, covered in factor 50!
When he was dropped off here, we were told he's been awake since 5-10 this morning, so we may even get a little snooze from him later!
Hope everyone has a lovely daysmile
Happy Birthday Marydoll cupcake

Marydoll Mon 14-May-18 09:23:33

Maw we are off to Cardwell Bay Garden Centre at Gourock and probably onto Largs for a fish tea ( as opposed to high tea ๐Ÿ˜ ).
Thank you all for your good wishes.๐Ÿ˜Š
