    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.

    No Colin, can't really justify one for the little use it would get. I simply used the good old fashioned method of applying buckets of water with washing up liquid and bleach (to kill algae) and then the Armstrong method with a stiff broom to scrub it all. 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.

    I've got a pressure washer but it makes soooooo much mess I usually end up doing it with a hose and a broom. It uses tons of water too which isn't good when you're on a meter.

    Good morning everybody.

    Was up at 4am, been out with the dog and am now heading off to work.

    A bit damp and drizzly here, but not cold.

    Hope you all have a good day.

    Greets all, up quite early as I had a bad night with stomach cramps ... I blame my doctor for tinkering with my medication.
    Wet and windy today with more to look forward tomorrow ... might as well hibernate.

    Morning


    It sounds windy here too, can hear it whistling down the chimney! Hibernation sounds good

    I was all set to go to the gym earlier and fell asleep again

    I guess my body is telling me it needs to rest, so rest it shall
