    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.

    Oops! I'm late!

    Well, it seems to be melting, but they keep mentioning frozen rain and it landing as ice, so I'm still not risking going out.

    I think tomorrow I might return my thermostat to its normal settings!

    It would stop you having all those numbers and exclamations, even though it's not technically correct.

    I forgot to say Good Morning.

    I'm so rude.

    I blame the parents.


    So, Good Morning, little earth tremors!

    Back to last in first in!



    Good morning leaf-lets!


    Yesterday evening there was a very sudden, very heavy, very loud and very short-lived torrent of rain..........

    Most peculiar.

    I have a muscle spasm in my left quadratus lumborum muscle. It's been there all night.
    I had to miss an appointment on Thursday due to the snow.
    Drat.

    Bore da pawb!!

    I'm back in work today after our snow day on Friday. Feeling a little tired & upon opening my inbox I can see an email from HRMC *sigh*.

    Hope your left quadratus lumborum muscle eases up Pyx, have you got anything you can take to help? I suffer with back spasms where I fractured a disc & it usually leaves me immobile.

    Seems like a quite nice day, warmer by far so I might get out in the garden today!

    Good morning, good morning, up and raring to go! Manchester tonight - good old Premier Inn and off to see the boys tomorrow!

    Excited. Have not seen them since July.

    Nain has Welsh rugby shirts and hats for them. Hopefully we will be able to watch the Wales v Italy game in our rugby shirts, albeit an hour later. I have warned friends not to text!

    I've been using ice packs and it's a lot better, thanks!

    I've got a chiropractic appt this week, postponed from last Thursday, so that should sort it.

    Hope you feel better Sleazy, wrap up warm & stay safe.

    Haha Polly, I have to switch my phone off if I can't make it for kick off! Hope you have a safe journey.

    Our garden is a bog after the snow!!

    Good afternoon.

    The snow has gone, and it's 5 degrees!

    Still got to wait until the 15th of March for a bin collection though, because the fortnightly one was missed on the 1st of March because of the snow.
