    Morning. Sun shining here today. This week seems to have flown by. We went to DS's and wifi was down something outside so was going to take time to fix. We met my brother for lunch so that was good.

    DS came back with us and went to football last night with DH apart from being home late they were fine. Just me worrying.

    DH is having a tooth out today.

    Just been reading back. Alfie your daughter's wedding must have been a great occasion such lovely surroundings.

    Firefly well done on book win and Sheils on yogurt win.

    Cathp welcome back hope all is going well with new job.

    Wingo great to hear DD2 has settled in school. Do hope DD1 settles soon. Sounds as though you all had a brilliant birthday weekend. Hotel seems a good find. Maybe you should think again about agency work.

    Sylvia hope you and DH are ok. Things should settle down a bit soon with schools back.

    Indie hope you are able to help nephew and they are doing as well as they can. Seems he is keeping himself busy.

    Rose hope your road is finished this week. Agree with you about birthday parties.

    Hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend. Be lucky.

    Been quite a nice day here apart from the odd shower.
    Got the bed changed and most of the washing done. Not that much ironing to do!
    Looking forward to getting away - going to see "Night of Dirty Dancing" on Sunday at Warrington (from voucher win) so really looking forward to it. Thinking of going to Prezzo for a meal first as they seem to have a lovely, reasonable weekend meal offer on. Do have a good voucher deal but think the set menu might be better.
    Hope everyone has had a lovely day.

    It's another beautiful morning here so must get out

    a sharp downfall of rain late afternoon then I packed up
    my tools and scuttled indoors.

    Great to see you have a win Firefly. Well done.

    Sheils hope you enjoy the show and have a great holiday. It's quite chilly now in the mornings and evenings so you need to pack more at least you have the car. Forecast is for warmer weather next week.

    Thanks Alfie DH is much better today. They seem to have looked after him quite well. He had to consult doctor and stop aspirin days ago and the dentist gave him antibiotics because of his previous heart condition. He looked very miserable yesterday but brighter today.

    Indie good luck with decluttering. Here I just need a dose of energy.

    Looks so dark out now and cold seems rain on the way.

    Good luck everyone.

    Good morning everyone


    Hope you're all ok on this glorious day!


    The sun is shining away here - yesterday late afternoon we
    ended up with rain and had one loud clap of thunder - really
    made me jump!


    We'll be having sunshine (hopefully) all day today - still
    got loads to do in the garden.

    Warhammer convention. Hope your son and gf had a
    brilliant time.


    So pleased that your DH was feeling a lot better yesterday

    Morning all,

    Have had a lovely start to our break with the Dirty Dancing show last night and a meal at Prezzo. Staying another night in Warrington (first night was about £38 B&B and tonight is free!) Breakfast really good in Village Hotels too Going to look for the Transporter bridge soon and then explore more of town. DH used to come here many years ago to meet friends so is finding it interesting to revisit. He originally just comes from about 8 miles away in Widnes.
    Will be heading to Bournemouth tomorrow so quite a long journey.
    Hope everyone has a lucky week.

    Hellooee everyone!


    I've just been reading the loveliest of messages (at the top
    of The Compers Chat Corner Board) to Competitions Time
    members from MSE Andrea. Very well done to all!


    It's a beautiful bright and sunny day here - been out pottering
    in my garden but must try to get on with comp catch up -
    I'm always falling behind!


    It sounds as if you've both had a brilliant start to your
    break sheils.


    Have a wonderful rest of the day all and please take care
    whatever you're up to.

    Morning, Glad you had a good start to your break sheils Hope the weather is good to you. We have a lovely day forecast here so have washing on ready to hang out. I have a couple of days off now, so time to catch up with all the housework and food shopping. I won a couple of football tickets last week, and have an email to pick what match i want to go see. I am giving them to my nephew to take one of his boys so will have to check what the matches and dates are.Hope you all have a good day.

    Well I feel like there has been a little goblin eating away at my time LOL its seems to fly by here.
    Not sure I mentioned it last week but we had a flood from upstairs's boiler and had to wash most of the stuff in m airing cupboard Anyway all done now and as leanfun says kids are all back to school so hopefully things will settle back down.

    Very well done on all the wins in the Inn over the past week and good luck for the rest of September everyone.

    Lovely to here the comments from MSE Andrea.

    Well off to the dentist soon so hope nothing much needs doing as its so expensive these days.

    Have a lovely day everyone.
    BIG THANKS TO ALL WHO POST THE COMPETITIONS
