    O/S Daily Thread Tuesday 11th October

    This is an !!!8220;over the garden fence!!!8221; type thread where we chat about everything Old Style and maybe a little bit more. It!!!8217;s a great, inspiring and motivating thread we start each day to discuss what Old Style things we!!!8217;re going to do today or what we!!!8217;ve achieved already. Everyone!!!8217;s welcome, please do come in, put your feet up (although check the fence hasn!!!8217;t just been painted first!) and join us for an Old Style natter. The more the merrier!

    As this is the Old Style Board, it would be appreciated if posts could include some Old Style content. Please be aware that many people may have small screens, or SLOW internet connections, so please don!!!8217;t post large pictures, or clip art !!!8211; links are preferred. When you make a post, if you feel like giving it a title, that will help others that don!!!8217;t have the time to read everything skim through the thread quickly but if not it's not a problem. Please do not start a new daily thread before you go to bed at night because this often leaves things confusing with two daily threads live at the same time. The idea is that a member would start each new daily thread after they get up in the morning.

    Some people who chat here like to try to answer everyone. Don!!!8217;t feel you have to though, a general !!!8220;hi everyone, hope everyone!!!8217;s well!!!8221; is fine.

    Morning everyone

    Hugs to those that want/need them x

    Happy birthday to those with a birthday x

    Still dark here, dry underfoot but air is chilly, we had the heating on for an hour last night and it's on at the moment but I'll be turning it off shortly. Yesterday the weather wasn't too bad until about 2pm when the sky went a very nasty shade of blue/grey and we had a very heavy downpour, sun was shining again half an hour later!

    DH up and gone to work, DS1 now getting ready for work and DS2 will be awake shortly.

    Dinner last night was egg, bacon, sausage, hash browns, black pudding, mushrooms and beans, dessert from the tins or ice cream. Not sure what we'll be having tonight as DH is going straight to a committee meeting after work, easy evening for me then! Dinner will be what I decide once I get in later, will try to get dinner served earlier but I work a bit later on a Tuesday so that may not be possible.

    Work yesterday was a manic day, the problem with staffing really showed as 1 of our colleagues was held up and late and it only left 1 person at the front to open as myself and other colleague were still trying to sort out the problems with the machines and monies - due to someone else not doing what they should have on Friday! Luckily we managed to sort it, but the day got off to a manic start and stayed that way most of the morning - at least the day passed very quickly!

    Today should be more settled, as our supervisor is back - we'll see.

    Keep safe and well x

    The chap with the two-tone face is Bailey, who crossed Rainbow Bridge not long ago. Always a place in my heart for him.
