    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.

    I can understand people queuing like that to get a £400 sofa for £50 or something, but designer trainers at full price? Words fail.

    Good Morning all.
    Told myself that I wasn't going to log on whilst away but couldn't resist! All the Valentine's day comments especially made me smile, especially Joan's & Suki's ... sounds just like me ......

    Just for info, we haven't come away for Valentine's day - just that half term is this week and wifey works in a school. I'd hate anybody to think I was getting sloppy

    Btw that was supposed to read 'soppy' but auto carrot changed it.
    I (usually) do whatever the little voices in my wife's head tell me to

    It's foul here. Driving rain and wind and it's cold.

    Windy (50mph gusts), not much rain and about 15 degrees ....
    Saw the posts about dress sizes - my wife's comment was "good job you're not in a kilt or you'd show your jewels" ... well, she HAS had wine ...

    Apparently I have a small amount of Scottish blood in me, but born and live in England. My wife says that I have nice legs and she'd like to see me in a kilt!

    Two hopes of that happening. One's called Bob and the other's an anagram of the word 'on'.

    Good morning little cupcakes!



    Watching Breakfast, they had a thing about a baker who has produced lifesize, 3D cakes that look just like her twin daughters, aged 1.

    Mike Bushell, the Breakfast sports announcer, made me laugh, because his response to that news was how could you bear to slice it? ......as he has enough trouble biting the head off a gingerbread man!

    I know how he feels, though.



    They are like sculptures, rather than cakes! The two in the middle are the cakes, and the girls on the outside are the real children!
    Apparently, she's also done cakes of Johnny Depp and Prince George.

    Indeed like sculptures, don't think that I could eat them!
    I'd feel like a cannibal

    Bore da pawb.

    Woke up in a really positive mood today, was ready for whatever the world could throw at me then I went outside & hopped in my campervan.

    Some idiot(s) have taken it upon themselves to smash the glass on my driver side mirror. Ok I thought could be a genuine accident. Looked over to the passenger side mirror (& actual wing mirror), which is hanging on by the proverbial thread & comes off in my hand!!

    So much for the optimism & positivity.

    Lovely day here today, suns out already.
    I could eat the cakes no problem ... despite the kid (cakes) looking very freaky!

    Ah no point in raging, its not going to change a lot really. Just going to suck it up & source some replacements.

    Thanks for the heads up on music, I shall head there now.
