    Good morning everyone

    Crikes - good morning early bird fire**fly!



    Well, after a wet and drizzly day yesterday it's a beautiful
    start to the day here now - at least the land had a good
    watering! Not entirely sure what the weather outlook is
    for tomorrow.



    So pleased to hear that your GD has got her appetite back
    rose - mince would be a no no for me but your homemade
    pizzas sound scrumptious!

    I hope your DD2 is feeling a lot better now wingo. xx

    I'm with fire**fly and sylv re ironing leanfun - it's
    usually last on my to do list!

    Off now to get a cuppa - take care all and have a lovely
    and lucky day.

    Morning,hope everyone is well and had a good weekend. It's been raining here non stop since sunday and still going now.I have been busy at work but had 2 wins yesterday. Another Hobgobling t-shirt that's 5 in total..lol. We have one each in here and started giving to family now. Neices hubby said he liked them so he will get this one. Also had a surprise in the post a pirate book from Primary times am sure nephew will enjoy that one. I am in and out all day driving DS and GF to work and hobby shops. Ihave a Dr's appointment later to try and sort my shoulders out as they are aching and grinding when i change gear. Hope you all have a lucky day.

    Lo Firefly at your early morning. Not good when you can't get back to sleep. At least you have done some things. Hope you have a nap this afternoon.

    Well done Indie on wins. The children love the look Wins. Hope Doctor can do something for you.

    Well have to admit not too much progress with ironing yesterday. I just gave up and sat down. Will have a go again today. However I don't know if it was reading about Rose's cooking I did cook a reasonable meal with only a little help from DH. Try catch up with ironing again today.

    Wingo hope your DD2 is better.

    Enjoy being out in the garden Alfie. I might venture into ours today.

    Good luck everyone.

    Good morning all, wet again here today. Off to Witherpoons later for lunch as its DH's birthday tomorrow and Sons on Thursday.

    Hope you get a good something done about your shoulder when you go to Doctors Indie. I need to go about my hip as it is beginning to cause me grief now. Well done on the wins.

    Sounds like you are making some progress leanfun, you just have to take it day by day until you are fully back to strength. I will make any excuse to stop ironing.

    Have a lovely day everyone and thanks firefly and Alfie for the lovely pics, they all make my day.

    I have the same problem with family Rose, have to go and rummage in their cupboards for my things.

    I haven't had a win from the GfK TV survey draw in some months, which is unusual. Just a fiver for the in depth media survey I did. That went on a Tesco voucher, which was pretty useful.

    Afternoon everyone. Late in today but it is deliberate. Resisted switching on pooter so that I could get some things done lol. Weather dry and warm here but by the looks of the sky now it wont last. So have got bed stripped and sheets duvet cover etc hung out. Nearly dry so just about to bring them in. Also made a start on tubs and hanging baskets. Just about to make my lunch and have a cuppa so may get some comping done as well. Indie I can feel your pain. Hopefully you don't have to go as far as me and have a replacement joint. That grinding feeling is horrible. I had painkillers physio etc before they decided to do op. Hope everyone is well or better. Take care peeps.

    Nice win sylvia well done. Lovely evening here so neighbour and I went out for a walk. Didn't even need a cardi. This afternoon wasn't great. It rained for a while but all gone now and brilliant sunshine and blue sky. I don't mind ironing now ff as I only have my own. when son was here it was about three changes a day. Washing machine was on every day and ironing was endless. Even when he joined the navy and had his own flat he would do washing and I did ironing. But I refused to do his navy uniforms as they had to be done a certain way. He still does his own uniforms now.

    Morning peeps. Lovely blue sky here today. Had a restless night so gave up and got out off bed about an hour ago. Birds are singing at the top of their voice which is a bit unusual about here. Hope everyone is well or feeling a bit better. Be lucky everyone.

    Happy Birthday to your DH Sylvia. Hope you enjoy the day. Well done on your win. Great it's something you can use.

    Firefly thanks for the great robot pic. Has made me smile. Well fought up with ironing. (iPad again but fought is good instead of caught!). It's normally not too bad when we only wash what I can iron that day.

    McCulloch well done on your win great you can use it for things you need.

    Amazing it was so warm for your walk yesterday Rose.

    Good luck everyone.

    Dull here today but not raining yet.

    Good morning all, thanks for all the birthday wishes for DH. We are having a quiet day today as went out yesterday although family coming for tea.

    Think I could do with the robot firefly LOL, need to get mine finished and everything up to date as we are going away on the 26th.

    Peeps upstairs have left and the workmen are in doing repairs, think they left if in quite a state even though they were only there for 8 months. Glad they have gone as they were a pain in the but.

    Off to knit and natter this afternoon, have made a few nice friends there so pleased about that. Think we do more nattering than knitting LOL.

    Have a lovely day everyone, whater you are up to and dont work too hard.
