A late good morning to you all.
A bright breezy day, going to peg out some washing in a minute.
Just got back from coffee morning, very enjoyable.
Glad you enjoyed your day out yesterday, mick.
Enjoy the rest of the day. 😁

Morning all.
Alexa told me it was 11° with mostly cloudy skies before I got up. I rose, opened the blinds, and the sun nearly dazzled me! It's fairly breezy, but otherwise a lovely morning. Washing to do today, then relaxing, maybe watch some football.
Have a good day everyone.

A vertical mouse (for operating a computer) is like a traditonal flat one, but on its side. It is supposed to be easier on the wrists once you have got used to it. You can see pictures if you google them! Not sure if I will prefer it but DH thinks I might find it better for my achey wrist/thumb.

Ooh reflexology - heaven! 💕💕

Morning All

Is a vertical mouse like a small version of a rat up a drainpipe?

Grey and breezy in Norfolk, but not too cold. Forecast says it should get out later. It did yesterday - eventually. We have a thrush singing wonderfully in our walnut tree. So nice to hear him.

Now waiting the imminent arrival of a lovely lady for a reflexology session. Then a friend is calling round for coffee with the pictures of the African safari she’s just got back from. A nice day beckons.

Good morning all, from a frequent lurker. Greyish here in Berks, hoping it will brighten up later. I was also wondering about the vertical mouse Newquay, will Gagagran let us know?

kittylester Mon 18-Jun-18 08:31:53

We still haven't found our mouse!

Anniebach Mon 18-Jun-18 08:31:23

Good morning all x

MawBroon Mon 18-Jun-18 08:27:28

One that isn’t lying down! Like a Meerkat? 🤣🤣

Newquay Mon 18-Jun-18 08:23:22

What on Earth is a vertical mouse? Lol!

silverlining48 Mon 18-Jun-18 07:56:25

Good morning all. Sun just peeping out after a grey start. I have a gp appointment this morning, test results and various ailments to discuss so have made a list. May have to prioritise if time runs out. Feeling ok-ish.
Wishing everyone a peaceful and productive day ahead.

Wishing you all Good morning from an overcast Kent

Panache Mon 18-Jun-18 07:48:24

Good Morning to you all.

Weather rather grey but dry and so we are ever hopeful for later.

Even after a restful day I am still feeling the after effects of a far too busy saturday.........signs that perhaps I should heed my body clock!!

Hope the week is going to turn out a full and pleasant one for you all.Take care.

Good morning from sunny Colchester. It's been raining overnight but should be a warm day.
Walking Netball this morning.

Greyduster Mon 18-Jun-18 07:42:43

Good morning, Michael, and all GNs. The sun is shining in South Yorkshire this morning but after a painful sleepless night I feel like a limp rag so not going anywhere fast today. School run later. DH may have to go solo today. Have a good day folks.

Gagagran Mon 18-Jun-18 07:30:39

Morning all!

Bit grey and cloudy here on the south coast but we are promised more sunshine from this afternoon and getting much warmer by Wednesday.

Laundry day today and other chores. Plus I am hoping my new vertical mouse arrives in the post.

Have a good day folks! sunshine

ginny Mon 18-Jun-18 07:24:34

Good morning. As Maw said earlier it’s a bit grey still in N. Bucks. Forecast looks good ( if it is correct! ).
Out early to take DD2 to work as she has torn ligaments in her foot and can’t drive.
Otherwise a day of bits and bobs to attend to.

Nana3 Mon 18-Jun-18 07:20:25

Good morning Mick and everyone, grey skies in Lancashire but the weather forecast says bright and breezy, I wonder if they ever look out of the window.
Had a lovely few days away in Melrose at the Literary Festival.
Busy day again today emptying my parents house, almost finished.
Best wishes harri flowers

Oopsadaisy53 Mon 18-Jun-18 07:19:24

Good morning Mick and everyone, it’s just stopped raining here, but it’s a very grey day, with a chilly wind.

I’ll try to finish planting the pots up today, if it warms up, otherwise I’ll have to water them all in their little boxes again.apart from that it’s a normal housework and washing Monday.

Have a good day everybody

gillybob Mon 18-Jun-18 07:05:26

Good morning Mick and everyone . A bit of a dull start here on the NE coast.
Well I didn’t win the lottery at the weekend so it’s back to “that place” for me today. I’m sure weekends are getting shorter.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Alima Mon 18-Jun-18 06:59:02

Good morning everyone, I’m with you lot. Bit drizzly just now in North Hampshire. Looking forward to the footy tonight. (Do like your subtle hints about “the other side” Mick!)

BlueBelle Mon 18-Jun-18 06:58:10

Yesterday’s we had three good morning Sundays now today we have three good morning Monday’s what’s going on ?

kittylester Mon 18-Jun-18 06:57:10

Morning all!

It's a brightish start in North Leicestershire. I am going to tackle the mountain of ironing this morning then going to a friend's for brew And gossip.

Take it easy harri flowers

Glad you enjoyed your exhausting day, Mick.

cornergran Mon 18-Jun-18 06:45:38

Morning Mick, Morning All. Grey start in our corner of Somerset. Littlest is looking after us today grin so best stir. No idea what we’ll do, see how we all feel. Sounds a good if exhausting day yesterday, mick. Hope Monday is kind to everyone.

Marydoll Mon 18-Jun-18 06:40:19

Good morning everyone, overcast here in Glasgow.
Glad to see you had a good day yesterday, Mick.
We have DGD today, but not sure of our plans. If it stays dry, we will be off to the park.
Look after yourself, Harri.
