    The Good Morning Thread 5th Apr 14 at 6:17 AM
    Well, we've got a goodnight thread so let's have a good morning one as well.

    Good morning everybody
    Me and the dog have had our morning constitutional and shortly I shall be venturing forth to the big Tesco to do my fortnightly shop. When I get home I've got 3 hours work related admin and paperwork to do

    The weather here is a bit nippy but at least there's no fog.

    I've been wearing light jumpers off and on in the house, as the heating isn't on most of the time.
    Light gilets are useful, as they give you that core warmth while not feeling restrictive.

    Indesisiv, I think they should plug you into the National Grid as you seem to produce so much heat!

    haha I can't think of any occasion that would ever compel me to wear a gilet!

    I don't like sleeves, so don't really have many clothes with them. Just a couple of running tops for the odd occasion it gets to about -5
    1 jumper for when I go and visit my parents as their house is always freezing!

    I have my window open today in the office as its so warm, and I never shut my bedroom windows.

    Blimey! If you think it's freezing, it must be at the South Pole!



    I have a cotton gilet that is quite thin, but just enough to take the chill off. Sleeveless, of course. I suppose it's more like a very thin sleeveless fleece, really.

    I do have a couple of the padded gilets, which I might wear in very cold weather, if I'm going to be outside a lot.

    Morning all

    Had a busy day so far, been into town to pick up me new glasses (hooray, I can see!).

    Been to B&Q for some wood for shelves, then to the surgery to drop me prescription in, and then.....I walked - yes, WALKED - to the post office to send some important things off. And then I walked back

    Heatwave? Hurray, lower heating bills, then!

    Except that shops and offices will still have their heating on full blast, I expect.

    Just realised I forgot to say Good Morning, so I shan't say it now!

    Has been rainy and windy out there. Now just windy.

    That's right. They do some pollinating, plus they keep other pests down, plus they are a food source for other creatures.


    Plus they are very good for getting Auntie Maud to do an African war-dance at the family summer BBQ!
