    O/S Daily Saturday 9 September 2017

    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

    Light cloud and now dry underfoot - yesterday we had several short heavy downpours which left loads of laying water in places, then short bursts of sunshine, it was quite windy too, but now very calm and forecast isn't too bad for today. Obviously we have nothing to complain about compared to the residents affected by hurricane Irma.

    We're up and enjoying peaceful cuppas, I'm working so I'm showered, dressed and now having coffee and eating brekkie whilst on here.

    Dinner last night was chicken and bacon kievs, chips/jacket potato, beans/veg for the menfolk, I had mushroom omelette and salad. Tonight it's going to be duck in hoisin sauce, rice and ribs, and some stir fried veg.

    Yesterday I was more productive, I did the food shopping, then got straight on with the ironing and changing our bed, DS1 also changed his bed, so dirty wash basket is full, but will work my way through that. 1 load is in now, not sure how much will get line dried though as after today the forecast isn't great for most of next week.

    Keep safe and well x

    Evening all,

    as expected, nothing that was planned happened at all. We went looking at tellys instead. Didnt buy one, just stood there for 2 hours comparing specs....

    Both of us are tired and keep out of each others way tonight.

    Gers, glad to hear your Mother is improving. May she continue to improve!

    Have a good evening all.
