    Good morning everyone

    I hope you're all ok.

    After a very strange weather day yesterday (a mix of
    wind and sudden onset of sharp showers) today I've
    woken up to a bright n' breezy day with not a cloud in
    sight! Got to make the most cos it can change so
    quickly at the mo!



    Your pansies sound lovely sheils - absolutely gorgeous
    little flowers and as fire**fly says - always so colourful &
    cheery!




    Have a brilliant and safe day all whatever you have planned.
    I will catch up later.

    The rain has finally stopped here and the sun is shining!
    Just saw the above pic, which reminded me of the grass area just up the road from us. It is like a scene from Watership Down when you walk past.

    Lovely pansy pic Alfie. I have always loved pansies but they don't usually do well in my garden. Added fresh soil where I planed them this year though so fingers crossed.

    Hope you didn't get too wet nipping out yesterday FF.

    We have DD and her bf coming for dinner tonight as we are all going away next Monday (not to same place) Going to make a steak pie.

    Wishing everyone a lucky day.

    Well yesterday was another surprise evening thanks to comping. Yesterday lunch time I had a phone call from the Evening Standard offering two tickets to a preview filming of Churchill at the May Fair hotel in the evening. DH was very keen so we said yes. Obviously people had dropped out.
    The Centre of London was quiet we saw a number of police vans and armed police near the hotel. It was a chilling feeling on train through London Bridge going over Borough Market. DD1 works in the city so does it everyday.
    The film was brilliantly acted. Brian Cox, who plays Churchill and the director were at hotel and spoke beforehand. The other main actor Miranda Richardson was also excellent. Film depicted meetings leading up to DD landings. Whatever your politics the acting was gripping.
    We made it there and back without a soaking from the rain and we're home in record time. Today were are going up again for TapeFace.

    Love you pansy pic Alfie. Like Sheils one of my favourite flowers.
    Hope everyone has a good and lucky day.

    Good morning all, sorry I didn't pop in yesterday but was quite poorly with a touch of tummy bug and spent a lot of the day in bed. Feeling better today though.

    I love pansies too and violas Sheils and have lots on my patio.

    Hope you didn't get too wet going out yesterday firefly.

    Weather here looks like it might be OK today.

    Glad you enjoyed the film yesterday leanfun. It must have been quite scary going over London Bridge. Glad you are all OK.

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

    Morning all suns back out today after a non stop rainy two days! I think it's a bit windy though.

    Hope it stays out for you Alfie if you're in the garden. Sounds like you had a busy day yesterday!

    Enjoy your evening with DD and her BF Sheils. Hope you get some nice weather for Monday

    I expect you're busy this morning fire**fly if you have to nip to the shops. Hope you get caught up with everything

    Great win Leanfun It's great that you win tickets that you want for shows Enjoy Thursday and hope the suns out.

    Did you have a good holiday Sylvia? At least it was nicer weather last week anyway! We've had flooding around the area but not too severe.

    Hope you have a good day indie/Rose and everyone else too

    I've got sons football club presentation to go to tonight. It will probably be another long night like the TJFA presentation night was!
    The tent is getting delivered this week too! it's one of those new quick inflate ones too and they look great!
    Big thanks to all who contribute to the forums. Be lucky everyone!

    I must have been typing as you posted Sylvia! Sorry to hear you weren't feeling too good yesterday and hope you're feeling better now xx
    I agree it must have been scary going over London Bridge. My niece works in London and had came home on that Saturday before it happened and that's the route she takes too.
    Big thanks to all who contribute to the forums. Be lucky everyone!

    O'h well it was nice to see the sun yesterday - rain back today.
    Had a lovely night with DD and her bf. Spent some of it advising on saving money on household bills so DD went away with a list of things to do! She has got their Sky bill down and got rid of their pay electric meter which was in their house so she has already started. Can't believe what companies are getting away with charging when people don't take out contracts etc.

    It must be nice getting all these free tickets leanfun, glad you are enjoying them all.

    Hope you got your plants potted up indie.

    Wingo I saw your pic of your DS holding trophies on FB. Were they all his? He must be good.

    Sylvia, hope you are feeling better today.

    Good luck everyone.

    Morning. Just lost post as battery went! Start again

    We had another great night last night at Tape Face. It was at the Garrick theatre which is very old and quite small with three tiers and very ornate. We were in the stalls BB 1and 2 which turned out to be the second row. Downside he came off stage looking for participants. My heat beat faster every time he went past but as we were about the oldest there we were safe. Others near us went up and were brilliant. The whole thing was really funny, wonderful to hear so many young people laughing. It was opening night so red carpet was out. Im sure some celebs there but I'm not good at spotting people.

    Yes, Sheils I've been so lucky with tickets and we have enjoyed some good evenings. Just what we needed. To be truthful I think the tickets this week were because people dropped out and didn't want to go into London. We were later going in yesterday and there were lots of people about both going in and going home. Everything seemed as normal. Thinking back wasn't true for Tape Face as the lady phoned on Friday. I think someone dropped out for a different reason.
    Pleased you had a good evening with DD and BF. Our DD1 has been going through her household finances recently. It's so easy to be paying too much.

    Sylvia hope you are feeling much better now.

    Rose hope you are ok.

    Wingo how is your brother?

    Good luck everyone.

    Good morning all wet here again and very windy. Feeling better today so thats good. Just took an old lady nearby to the polling station to vote, we do a postal vote now. She was pleased anyway as they have moved it to the library which is up a steep hill so thats my good deed done for the day.

    Saw you DS's pic on fb Wingo, well done.

    Glad you enjoyed your night out yesterday leanfun you are doing really well with your ticket wins.

    Hugs for anyone needing them.

    Morning, glad you enjoyed the evening leanfun,i would love to go to shows in London but live too far away now. I do enter if there is overnight stay as well but not been lucky yet. I use to live 20 mins away from central London when growing up and had some good nights out there.
    Well it's very cloudy here but dry and the wind has dropped at last. I did get my planting done but just keeping an eye on them now as the wind battered them a bit. Off out to vote soon, thank goodness it will all be over soon and hopefully won't be bombarded by all sides having digs at each other.Hope you all have a lucky day.
