    its sunny here so far this morning.

    We had a good evening last night. We had a meal at a Cafe Rouge (with a voucher). I had a very nice fish dish. The play was just one ver talented actor and story teller, Debs Newbold, with a machine with recorded sounds. That was it she was in jeans and t shirt no scenery and told a story of a family. So it was something completely different. We had brilliant seats in row B so there was no problem with seeing and hearing. She was very talented and quite funny in parts. So it was good to have an evening out.

    Shells pleased you are feeling a lot better but the cough seems to be lingering. Sorry to hear about your daughter. its hard when you are ill and trying to study. Hope she!!!8217;s better soon.

    Rose take care pleased to hear snow is clearing your way. Hope your cough eases soon.

    Thanks for hedgehog info Alfie. Smiled thinking of you helping them across the road Sheils.

    Firefly one day at a time. Just do what you feel able to and don!!!8217;t worry about the rest.

    Take care everyone and good luck.

    Shiels it is not my ribs that are hurting with coughing for some reason it is my back. Especially at the bottom. Muscular I suppose. Glad your not hurting any more. Went down to supermarket and peeps are stocking up on bread and milk as there is supposed to be more snow here tonight. Thought those days were gone ( buying 3/4 loaves at a time) I bought two just in case DS and DIL run out as GK's take a packed lunch every day except a Friday. Will stick it in freezer if they don't need it. Leanfun glad you had a good evening out. Sounds as if you thoroughly enjoyed it. It is International Whisky Day today. so may indulge in one tonight. May help cough lol.

    Good morning all


    It's been raining through the night here but has
    eased off now - think we're in for a mix of sunshine and cloud
    today.


    Had a thoroughly enjoyable day yesterday - spent most of
    the time out gardening & also putting the
    world to rights with my lovely window cleaner.


    So pleased you both enjoyed your evening out leanfun - the
    meal & play sound wonderful!

    Pouring with rain here today but doesn!!!8217;t seem so cold. I think rain is forecast for a lot of next week.

    Rose hope you have had a better night. hope the whisky on its special day did some good.

    We picked Grandson up yesterday from childminder and he said its only two days to go before his cousins come. Just hope they are able to fly from Glasgow tomorrow.

    Well yesterday the postman brought me one of the Corbyn annuals. As there were 500 of them going. its lined up to give to a family member. ho ho.

    hope everyone has a good weekend. Be lucky.

    Good Morning,

    Sun shining away here but we had really heavy rain through the night. It might even had been hailstones at one point - woke me up anyway.
    Got my hair cut yesterday so much more manageable now - felt a bit like an old English Sheepdog before it. Think I need some highlights now though so booked them in 6 weeks time.

    Well done on annual leanfun - saw them mentioned on IWIWIW.

    Glad you slept better rose. DH loves a whisky before bed. I'm afraid I can't stand the stuff although I know quite a lot about it. Have been round several distilleries etc and DH tells me about the different malts. Also enjoyed the Whisky Experience in Edinburgh where I did taste a few malts (although DH finished them for me!)

    Great you got into the garden Alfie. Ours is pretty sodden. Love the pizza pic.

    Hope everyone has a lucky day.

    hiya, just in case anyone else in the inn got the message
    for password change I emailed the forum team for
    verification of it,
    & also spotted MSE Andreas post in Site Feedback
    Password update prompt
    so it is a genuine message.

    hi rose, yes I wondered what was going on & was very suspicious
    with the message & didn't change until I emailed the team then checked the site feedback board,
    apparently you can still keep your old password if you want according to lots of other posts on the thread/s,
    there's also lots of feedback in CCC on it so at least it
    was worthwhile checking just in case.
    all the years on here & it's the first time I recall it ever happening!

    Good morning all

    Hope everyone's ok today. Had a visit from Jack Frost during
    the night but quite mild compared to yesterday. (Bitterly cold
    with a biting wind!) Brrrrrr! Got rid of some 'rubbish' at my
    local refuse centre and the guys were all wrapped up like
    Michelin men!

    Being inquisitive, I've just googled to find more info re the
    Michelin Man saying and came across these:

    Early Michelin Man .....





    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelin_Man

    Fascinating history. As you can see, I'm easily sidetracked!

    Morning peeps. Cold and raining here. Wish I could afford just to leave in the bad weather and come back when it is a bit warmer lol. Can't stand the cold. Was going to head out this morning to look for a Birthday Present for a friend but have decided unless it clears up I am staying where I am. Have another week to get it. Arthritis in left hand and wrist is flaring up so I am sitting typing with fingerless woolen glove on it. (Very becoming lol) Hopefully it wont appear anywhere else. Hope everyone is well and warm.

    Morning,

    Been bucketing down again and set to continue. Was a lovely day yesterday though and got all my washing dry. Guess what I will be doing today! The forecast for the week looks pretty bad with rain and snow showing.

    Hope the weather won't be too cold for you rose. I know we seldom get the worst of it here. DS2 and DS3 keep moaning about the amount of snow this year and how cold it is. Will be so nice to see spring appear.

    Will have a read about the Michelin Man Alfie. Great pics.

    Wishing everyone a lovely, lucky weekend.

    Morning, we had a hard frost here last night and everything outside is white. Going to take son to work soon so will have the clear the car windows first. I love the post about Michelin men Alfie. I work with a girl who wears a coat that looks like the Michelin men wore it. she says it is warm and makes us laugh everytime she wears it.Some of the young girls at work googled Michelin men as never heard of them,that made a few of us feel old...lol. I have this weekend and next weekend off, going to try and not work weekends now spring is on the way and want to get on and do things in the garden and some DIY round the house.
    I hope you all have a good weekend.

    evening peeps. hope I find you all well. Nearly got myself in a bit of a tizz this afternoon. Suddenly struck me when I saw the date on my newspaper it would have been my dads birthday today. So rushed of to florist then jumped on a bus to the cemetry. Spent a bit of time there and had a wander to see other relatives (sounds a bit morbid but I don't find it so)came home frozen and a bit wet and phoned my sister in Edinburgh. She had forgotten as well. Upset her a bit. So she has it marked on calendar now so that she will copy over on to next years.

    Popping in just to say the GKs arrived this afternoon. Flights from Glasgow were fine just a bit late but not through weather. Ex DIL said it was most strange as it was sunny as they went to airport.

    it was very wet and windy when they arrived here but it was good to see them. DD1 and GS were already here when we arrived home and the GKS went wild running around. GS is coming back tomorrow for sleep over. lo late to sleep for everyone I expect. DKS has brought book back from Scotland I sent him for his birthday for me to read to him.

    Indie pleased you have weekend off. Been thinking of you and your family. Its a hard time for your nephew and the boys. All I can say is Big Hugs.

    Rose I hope you feel better soon. DH was saying about the Man U Munich disaster last week that it was sixty years and that his father died a couple of days later. DH was the eldest in his family and was just 18 at the time.
    Think its Wingos Dads anniversary about this time. Hugs too.

    Hope everyone has a good weekend and keeps warm.
