    This is an “over the garden fence” type thread where we chat about everything Old Style and maybe a little bit more. It’s a great, inspiring and motivating thread we start each day to discuss what Old Style things we’re going to do today or what we’ve achieved already. Everyone’s welcome, please do come in, put your feet up (although check the fence hasn’t just been painted first!) and join us for an Old Style natter. The more the merrier!

    As this is the Old Style Board, it would be appreciated if posts could include some Old Style content. Please be aware that many people may have small screens, or SLOW internet connections, so please don’t post large pictures, or clip art – links are preferred. When you make a post, if you feel like giving it a title, that will help others that don’t have the time to read everything skim through the thread quickly but if not it's not a problem. Please do not start a new daily thread before you go to bed at night because this often leaves things confusing with two daily threads live at the same time. The idea is that a member would start each new daily thread after they get up in the morning.

    Some people who chat here like to try to answer everyone. Don’t feel you have to though, a general “hi everyone, hope everyone’s well” is fine.

    Morning everyone

    Hugs to those that want/need them x

    Happy birthday to those with a birthday x

    Now light, dry underfoot, after a cloudy overcast start yesterday the sky cleared and it was another sunny day, hoping for the same today. Hoping washing can be line dried.

    DH up and gone to work stupid early, DS1 now getting ready for work, DS2 still in his pit, will wake him shortly to get up and ready for college.

    Dinner last night was pork steaks oven cooked in gravy and veg, served with mash, carrots, HG green beans, mini corn cobs and peas, all eaten and enjoyed. Tonight I'm not sure, but I do have some breaded chicken pieces in the freezer, so could serve those, with a cheese and potato pie and beans. If possible I don't want to buy any more food today as doing the weekly food shop tomorrow. Really need to get back to the menu planning, and stop the "top up" shops other than needing bread.

    Now on days' off, have quite a "to do" list and I really want to get going with it, as everywhere feels cluttered and untidy, so I'll just potter along and try to get as much done as possible, I'll write a list shortly.

    Keep safe and well x
