    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.

    Dull and windy at home. Dull, windy and very wet at work.

    I hope it stays dry over the weekend. It's our first weekend at home since the beginning of August and the garden looks neglected.

    That's actually an understatement. It looks terrible.

    It's supposed to be hot tomorrow, but cold on Sunday, if I heard Aron correctly early this morning.

    I was only half-listening, though.


    Going for my flu jab this morning.


    Good morning, little pin-pricks.

    How do you greet a punctuation mark when you're in a hurry?

    Slash.......hmm....Whatever happened to the much nicer, and British, 'oblique'?

    Just so long as we don't start saying 'period' instead of 'full stop'!

    I shan't say Good Morning, 'cos it ain't.

    It's pouring with rain and I am seething and tutting.

    Take note..... I and not tutting and seething; I am seething and tutting.
