    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.

    It was the storm, I got about two hours sleep the night before, I shouldn't really have driven the car yesterday morning, it was worse than being drunk

    I was going to suggest you just plant a bit of hedge in the gap. Hedges never need painting, and choose the variety carefully and they wouldn't need a lot of trimming, either.

    Then I remembered Bailie.

    I know exactly why it happened, my arms are so weak I have issues with screwing screws in properly. So...I tend to drill a too big pilot hole

    I hate to admit it but I really need a bloke to tighten them up properly

    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    After the torrential rain we have had we are now into a freeze and because the roads were so wet, they weren’t gritted. Felt like a stunt driver going in today , just bloody glad I sold the MR2 , I’d never have made it in that
