    The Good Morning Thread 5th Apr 14 at 6:17 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.

    Morning, all. U3A talk on the Williamson Tunnels in Liverpool today. Missed a chance to visit them, so the talk should be good.

    Good morning, all. Window cleaner has just been, caught me in my dressing gown again!

    He's a lovely ex-pupil, though. Discovered yesterday that one of the very few horrible kids, a girl, works as a carer!

    I used to say I dread the thought of being in a home, being force-fed meat by DA! She looks like that Chucky doll, too.

    Morning all!

    I am beyond exhausted today! It too 8 hours to get back from Bournemouth yesterday. We should have got a direct 4 hour train and we ended up going...

    Bournemouth to Reading - get off at Reading on the advice of the train people........pop to the bathroom then rush back on the train as they say the train can go now.
    Reading to Didcot Parkway - sit there for an hour - then get told the train could go no further....
    Didcot Parkway to Cheltenham Spa - no aircon on the train
    Cheltenham Spa to Birmingham New Street
    Birmingham New Street to home.

    Took 8 hours.....and we were drinking wine. I don't know if I am hungover, tired, both......I also still feel as if I am on a train - think I have an inner ear issue as I am gently swaying....

    Sounds a nightmare, nothing worse than train delays when it is so hot & stuffy.


    I'm finding it really hard going rugby training on such hard ground, my knees are sore today!!
