    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.

    Morning everyone

    Hugs to those that want/need one x

    Happy birthday to those with a birthday x

    Now light, dry and very cloudy but this is how the days seem to start at the moment, skies then clear and we've been getting some sunny days, we'll see. Washing ready to go out on the line in a mo.

    DH up and gone to work stupid early, DS1 now getting ready for work and DS2 still in his pit.

    Dinner last night was chicken goujons, chips/jacket potato, beans/veg, was a bit late home from work as was assisting another member of staff as they are still learning some of our tasks that we need to do. Not sure what we're having for dinner tonight, haven't planned very well this week so will need to sort this.

    Work wasn't as busy yesterday - we'll see what today brings, working all day as still doing the extra hours only until the end of March though.

    Keep safe and well x

    Afternoon all,

    It has been a lovely day here today, cloudy now and I think that we are due some rain later.....after all we have had 2 rain free days!

    May be changing my phone/broadband provider, guy is to come tonight to talk to DS1, I am so lazy aboutmaking those kind of decisions.

    Knitting was our usual chatty, laughing morning, actually did some knitting as well!

    Dumpling, I hope that your girls get the help they need soon.

    Speky...congratulations on your move into property ownership!

    Csarina......keep the blood pressure down

    TA......thanks for the soup recipe, I love soup so will be trying that one out soon. constantly amaze me with your money saving ideas, and your consistant kindness.

    Hugs to all, have a good evening.

    meanmarie I just hope that passing on good luck to someone else will make them do it when they get a chance that's all. I think at some point in all our lives it helps to get a bit of good luck or a good turn, I have had a few over the years and been thankful of them as well.

    Had a nice afternoon pottering around and doing lots of those sill little to-do jobs that now have been to-done just going to have my dinner and then put my feet up and watch some catch-up tv.My next door neighbour gave me some tiny chillis that a work friend brought back from Sri Lanka and I'm going to see what I can whizz up with them They are very small about thumbnail size ,but he said quite fiery bit like me
    have a good evening chums what ever you are doing

    Evening all.

    A link for you who like to hear of the work my daughter and her partner do in the Baby House in S A.

    Have any of you seen this in the news?

    The baby is now in the care of the Baby House.

    I am fine, having a few days away with hubby and the hounds in the caravan. The idea was that hubby could forget about home and work for a few days but I don't think he's thought it through. We are going out tomorrow night with some of the guys at work from the Cornish branch.

    Sleep well all
