    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've resigned myself to just letting things happen if & when they are meant to.

    Good Morning all

    I must be an anomaly as I don't do the whole shoes thing. I have a couple of pairs of "nice" shoes upstairs somewhere, last worn at my own wedding (1992). Also got probably 4 or 5 pairs of nice looking boots for winter, there's maybe 2 pairs of sandals which I never wear as I have humongous bunions

    The rest is all trainers (3 pairs in use - dog walking, around the house and garden and 1 pair that aren't scruffy and falling apart if I need to nip to the shops, plus there's 2 new pairs upstairs as I tend to buy in bulk) and wellies (1 pair each size 6 and 7 in use, 1 pair each size new, again, bought in bulk).

    I'm more of a Dyson girl, I've got 5 of those

    I need them to both move out!

    It is built properly. Both wardrobes and shoe thing are crafted from the finest ash. This house has was declared a chipboard furniture free zone in 2000.

    I do like Dysons - they always look so stylish.

    Nooo not at all ... I was merely saying that you don't need the hassle of getting into a relationship just so that you can get someone to build something like that. Its quicker and easier just to pay someone to do it, much less hassle and once built the said builder is not under your feet all the time afterwards and you can admire your shoes in peace.

    I am sure Glooms skills at DIY are fantastic.
