Good morning, it's an early start here after a bad night.
I don't know what the weather's doing, nothing in particulay I don't think - yesterday turned out wet and windy.
Yesterday was an ok day, not a lot happening today apart from I'm meeting an ex work colleague for coffee in one of the local cafes, I can walk down though, it's on our main street.
Mehefin, glad to see your post yesterday, I'm pleased to see that you're picking up a bit.
Still no news from Ruby or Nelski though.
Thinking of them, and our other poorly people, take care folks.

Wet and windy again, the wind woke me during the night but I managed to get back to sleep after a quick pit stop. Washing just finishing so will hang that on the pulley before I go to work.
Got my parcel yesterday, it's a dress for DDs wedding. Tried it on and it's a perfect fit but still not sure. Seems to be a bit early to be looking but I quite like it, just worried I may see something else I like better and will be stuck with this one. Decisions!
Gers, I would keep the wardrobe. It's useful for storage even if you don't hang anything in it.
taff - he's new to Head Teachering, he will have to learn to compromise a little. Not much of a sense of humour yet, hoping we can change that!
Rotten for you Izzy with your colleague.
Good day at work without the children or teachers yesterday, lots got done that would have been a challenge with constant interruptions, hoping today is calm.
Glad to hear you're feeling better Mehefin.
Missing Ruby and Nelski, hope all's well with you.
Hugs to the poorlies.
Have a good day, take care. XX
SNOOZER if you made it up to TA land yesterday I hope you had a safe journey with the torrential rain, gales and floods hindering your journey. MEHEFIN it was good to hear you seem to be slowly on the mend. I hope it's the same for NELS and RUBY. DP1 your DD is certainly seeing the world in her job. TOPSY we have our summer residence (aka static 'van!) near to Brimham Rocks, we might bump into each other if you get up here in the summer!
I never got on here yesterday I think time caught up with me when I was rushing round to get ready to meet BFF for coffee 'n lunch. As usual much catching up was done and our 3rd friend joined us again, just for lunch and a catch up. I was tempted by fish and chips as not had any for ages. Naughty but nice, very nice!
My new vac finally arrived yesterday and that got assembled last night and I will give it a try shortly. Then it's the freezer defrost that never happened on Monday! I have brought the fan down which sits on a buffet to assist the ice melt! I am expecting a flood down the steps into the garage!
Have a good day folks if you can and ((HUGS)) for our poorlies, convalescing or fed up. Take care all and be safe xx
Wild and windy here - little kitten wanted out but turned round and came back in.
I had an electrician booked this morning to change my thermostat - it doesn't stop at the temperature you have it set at. He's been and gone in the space of 2 minutes, saying he hasn't got the stuff to do it today so they'll re-arrange - well that was the job, so I'm a bit confused what he thought he was here for.
I might pop down to mam and dads this morning then I have an appointment about my memory - hopefully how bad it is is just due to long covid. And then an appointment with the nurse as the doctor wants my blood pressure checked. I've had an almost constant headache for the last few weeks - the only thing that helps is my migraine medication but I only get 6 tablets a month and it just comes back the next day.
Little one has gone to nursery without me for the first time today - two members of staff are now trained to do her finger pricks - they'll be worried about her alarm going off all day. Hopefully they'll manage ok but can ring DD if they need to. We've had lots of chats along the lines of ' no-one else has their granny at nursery' to which she usually replies that she's so lucky!
Well I'm waffling so I'll go. Hope everyone has a good day today x
TA, yes we did make it up. There was a bit of flooding on the A65 but we've had it a lot worse, I remember once we got to Ilkley and didn't think we'd get any further, every road seemed blocked by floods. It's not actually raining atm woohoo.
Having said that it looks like we have quite a bit to do round the house so at least we won't be tempted out if the weather is terrible. The large cupboard where we keep the spare linens, consumables and stuff we don't want the guests to have access to seems to have become a bit of a jumble in the couple of months since we were last here. We always have to sort out the kitchen cupboards because people move, break or lose (decide they like something and it disappears) things.
It will have to wait today though because we are going to see Steve's sister who is 75 today, she is 8 years older than him so 10 years older than me, by the time Steve was 12 she was married but they still have a close relationship.
Have a good day.
I have pressed "go" on the dw and I am now having a warming cuppa. After lunch we'll start to empty out the lounge of all the things that we won't need for a while. Mr Fix It is letting his 4 ft desk go at last🙏. I've brought him round to my way of thinking that we don't now need one in the lounge as well as one in the office. We also have 2 computers and 4 laptops, not including mine, so I'll have to work on getting rid of at least 2 of those too. Watch this space 😉
Snoozer happy birthday to Steve's sister 🎉
Well done Izzy and Rosy for the weight loss, it is something to be proud of so hold your heads up high !
dp1 grr to the electrician. Hope little one gets on well at nursery without you today.
TA hope you're enjoying your new vac.
Gers stay safe and cwtched in this weather.
Camelot glad the dress fits, now you have to make sure you don't loose or gain any weight before the big day 😁 I went down a dress size and had to take mine in !
Scarlet enjoy your meet up for coffee.
Take care all, stay safe and warm.
