    The Good Morning Thread 5th Apr 14 at 5:17 AM
    Well, we've got a goodnight thread so let's have a good morning one as well.

    Good morning everybody
    Me and the dog have had our morning constitutional and shortly I shall be venturing forth to the big Tesco to do my fortnightly shop. When I get home I've got 3 hours work related admin and paperwork to do

    The weather here is a bit nippy but at least there's no fog.

    Good morning

    The sky has gone from a deep shade of pink to orange and looks lovely, I'm hoping that it will stay dry but I have my doubts.

    Nothing to do today so I may just catch up on some housework/baking that I've been putting off all week, I might even trim my beard (yes I'm that bored already)

    Morning all. Lots of aching muscles this morning after yesterday's strenuous outdoors spring cleaning ... scrubbed the patio, cleaned up the garden furniture, gathered fallen leaves, swept the walkways and hosed down the walls and windows.


    Forecast looks quite good so I'm planning a lazy day just pottering around the garden doing some light pruning.

    Good Morning All

    Just sitting here trying to get motivated !

    Had severe insomnia this week so I am off for the longest walk today. That I can manage

Then followed up with the hosepipe and a pistol attachment which can deliver quite a forceful jet as we have high mains pressure here.

    It did a pretty good job too.
