    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.

    Morning all, looking like another beautiful day. Contemplating a 'barbecue' later with one of those £2 self-contained things which I still have from last summer.

    Morning all! Just!

    They are my nails but with an acrylic overlay. Every year I have them all taken off and a new set of tips put on - so for about 3 month, I do have false nails. After that, they are mine.

    Been busy deadheading plants and painting pots for the garden. Too hot to be outside now so kitchen cleaning it is

    I was just wondering what the collective noun for swans might be.......it turns out to be a bevy or bank. (Or in flight, a wedge).

    I was disappointed........ I wanted it to be an elegance of swans.



    Good morning, little cygnets!

    Good morning Hominids.
    Hot and sticky night, so washed my hair this morning. All three.
    Today is decreed as 'Matelot Monday', so sailors best look out ......

    I matched a whole heap of confidential stuff in the garden incinerator yesterday. Went up in flames ...... I like setting fire to stuff.
