    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.

Any way I have been trying for ages to just agree that we cancel the maintenance we pay each other as the CMS take their cut... she has always refused.



    My eldest told me that her Mum is retraining as a nurse & won't be working, obviously means maintenance won't be paid but I will be paying. Ex wife called today to tell me what my daughter had told me already & that maintenance would be stopping, she then said it wasn't fair for me to keep paying her so could I stop paying her.

    So excited for you!

    Sadly - I am not even being sarcastic......

    I do wonder if I come across as a superficial girly girl on here.....I'm not, honest! I just love shoes and getting may nails done!

    I was the youngest of 3 had had two older brothers. Therefore I ended up doing lots of boy stuff - I was quite happy climbing trees, getting muddy, rough & tumble etc - I just liked to do it in frilly knickers and pink dresses.

    Although I take a half size in old money, so it's difficult deciding which continental size to go for!

    If it's only a bit too big, I can always put an insole in.




    No I can't! They've got split toes!

    I hope your neighbour finds his cat

    It's so upsetting when that happens.

    Did it have a collar with its address on?
