    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.

    It's a little emoticon stick person, crawling slowly across the dry yellow sand (due to thirst), with a cactus, and the bleached skull of a buffalo.


    It doesn't sound so funny, put like that!

    Morning all!

    Why is everyone acting as if we already won the World Cup?

    And if we do win, surely it's an easy win, given that all the goods teams have gone!

    Well done England!

    Good morning, all.

    Well done, England! Although I hate football, I found myself sucked in because those Colombian players were so awful.

    I do not understand why a yellow card does not mean 10 minutes off, as with rugby. That should discourage these deliberate fouls.

    I did see that fantastic save though.

    Good morning all you earlier Riesling's.

    Up late today, about an hour and a half ago and following a drink (coffee), went straight into the garden for a bit of weed and Bush chopping. Only half an hour, but that's enough for now although I feel a bit betterish today. Green bins tomorrow, so thought I'd best make some sort of effort. Green things growing INSIDE my shed that I'll have to give some attention to as well another time.

    Sorry, was thinking this was the happy clappy chatty thread, so I'll post my ramblings there later perhaps ...
