    This is an “over the garden fence” type thread where we chat about everything Old Style and maybe a little bit more. It’s a great, inspiring and motivating thread we start each day to discuss what Old Style things we’re going to do today or what we’ve achieved already. Everyone’s welcome, please do come in, put your feet up (although check the fence hasn’t just been painted first!) and join us for an Old Style natter. The more the merrier!

    As this is the Old Style Board, it would be appreciated if posts could include some Old Style content. Please be aware that many people may have small screens, or SLOW internet connections, so please don’t post large pictures, or clip art – links are preferred. When you make a post, if you feel like giving it a title, that will help others that don’t have the time to read everything skim through the thread quickly but if not it's not a problem. Please do not start a new daily thread before you go to bed at night because this often leaves things confusing with two daily threads live at the same time. The idea is that a member would start each new daily thread after they get up in the morning.

    Morning everyone

    Hugs to those that want/need them, those who are poorly and those who are looking after a poorly person x

    Happy birthday to those with a birthday x

    DH and DS1 getting ready for work, I'm showered, dressed and enjoying first cuppa and my porridge whilst on here. DS2 still in his pit.

    Still dark and air feels chilly.

    Dinner last night was chicken with rice and mushrooms. Tonight is a quick easy dinner of pie, chips with beans/mushy peas.

    I have the normal "to do" list so will need to crack on with getting stuff done. So will be heading into town this morning to visit the bank and building society.

    Keep safe and well x

    You've all made me cry! Thanks so much for your lovely comments, they all mean so much. Normally I wouldn't vent but, somehow, this morning was a step too far. DM sulked for a while before pulling herself together. She even said how much she enjoyed her lunch.

    The visitors were lovely, such cheerful folk. Again it was wonderful to hear chattering and laughing from DM's bedroom. I had planned for a walk when the visitors were here but heavy rain just started and hasn't stopped yet. Instead I've used the time to scan and email some documents, order a new book, ordered a new handbag and clear out some stuff for the CS.

    Once again

    EDIT - respite care never happened, social work need six weeks notice!

    Lost a post this morning as ran out of charge just as I was posting.....can't even remember what I said!!

    Gers....I know how you feel, my parents were dependant for 7 years following a car crash and died within 8 weeks of each other, take as much time to yourself as you can and keep in touch with friends.

    Very cold today, OH insisted on coming to shop with me even though he is still not well, doesn't like being on his own.

    Taking DGS2 to karate almost forgot as it's the first time since Christmas, have prepared dinner but DS1 will have to cook.

    Hugs to all
