    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.

    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    . hahahahahaha! I did them myself!

    Can't stand all the waiting for them to dry, only for them to blotch as soon as you pick something up.

    Plus the smell makes me wheeze.
    Ditto the acetone remover, too.

    And my nails keep splitting and are ridged, too, and varnish makes them ten times worse.

    No, when I have a posse of servants to peel me grapes, etc, then I might reconsider, but not until then!



    Phew! I have caught up now!

    I pay 」23 every 4 weeks which I think is a bargain. I'd be lost without my nails now.

    I feel very Friday - I am lacking in motivation - I just want to go home and chill out! It's been a busy week getting month end done and all the reports out......

    Not many beaches in our part of Wales. Still possible to cool off though...



    Obviously, shoes need to come off first...



    Apologies for the image quality. My camera broke so I had to use a potato.

    I make a pot of coffee every couple of days (I have flavoured ground coffee ), chuck it in the fridge so I can have my daily iced coffee It's never as good from a coffee shop - although Starbucks do a cold brew - which is similar.

    But I can't scoff at people who spend money on coffee - I just spent 」60 on shoes...in the sale

    I bought an England hat when I went to see the cricket. Very good quality and it was only 」18. I was very impressed!
