    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.

    Up early to be washed and dressed before blokes replacing garage roof arrive. Then MSE would not load and my permanent log-on to the Fast Diet site had disappeared.

    Pyxis, your post just poked me in the eye - did you mean coningsby?

    Morning all, thick fog at home this morning, and I slept through the alarm so was later getting to the office. I don't thing these two things are connected!

    Yes, I have the same problem - big digits on small keypad. Especially when trying to cut and paste pictures and links!

    Good Morning all.
    I was going to type 'Bon Matin' which auto carrot decided was Bob Martin .

    Maybe I do need worming and flea treatment , but in the absence of any availabuble (sic) medications will take a shower and do the weekly sock change which should hopefully get rid of most of my body weevils.

    *Sniff* *Sniff*
    On second thoughts, these socks still have some mileage left in them
    The holes could be an issue if it rains however!

    Hope that everybob has a wonderful Friday 13th with no major mishaps! All my engines are firing nicely today and hoping to go out soon, also later early evening for a meal. It's my wife's birthday on Sunday, so must remember to 'behave'

    Forgot.

    Had a 'catastrophe' first thing, then had to dash out to a zumba class.
    Then cooked lunch when I got back.



    Hello, anyway!




    Is a little catastrophe a kittenastrophe?

    At the moment I seem to have a "back siezed up" alarm that goes off around 4.30-5.00 a.m. every morning though.

    Bonjour mes amis.
    Not a 'Good' morning exactly.
    Couldn't sleep and got up early to the news that the promised Syrian attack has started.
    Going to Stafford today to take care of some 'stuff' which might all be pointless if a bigger conflict kicks off.
    Have a good day all, and be back here "apres la guerre"
