    Old Style Daily Sunday 10th September 10th Sep 17 at 5:05 AM
    This is an “over the garden fence” type thread where we chat about everything Old Style and maybe a little bit more. It’s a great, inspiring and motivating thread we start each day to discuss what Old Style things we’re going to do today or what we’ve achieved already. Everyone’s welcome, please do come in, put your feet up (although check the fence hasn’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’t post large pictures, or clip art – links are preferred. When you make a post, if you feel like giving it a title, that will help others that don’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.

    Afternoon all

    Late one from me today. I spent the afternoon rummaging under the stairs. I have found the last crochet project I worked on and my size 4 crochet hook-phew.

    Oh has been "mentioning" that we have no Victoria sandwich so I have just made one. He is always eager to wash up for me if I have been making cake.

    LW glad you and another carer saved the day.
    Gers hope your mum is improving.
    Dumpling hope the girls feel better soon.

    Hugs and spoons all round. hope everyone has a good evening.

    Onwards and forwards through gritted teeth,

    have a good evening all.

    Afternoon everyone.

    Just back from visiting DM. She's much brighter though still weak and tired she's much brighter and has a good colour on her again. I took her some more sandwiches and some fruit, a flask of tea and another book. The staff are really caring and helpful which reassures me a lot.

    The staff nurse (a lovely young man with astonishingly curly hair) told me that DM won't be coming home before Thursday so I'll be going back up the road tomorrow. It's the first week of teaching for uni and I've got classes on Tuesday and Wednesday, DM insist I go and I'm happy that she's in no danger and being sorted out. She's in a single room and like a pig in muck! She's so pleased that her slim ankles have reappeared.

    On a lighter note the dinosaur exhibition the the park is driving everyone slightly mad - loud roaring all day. The 'animals' are huge with moving heads and opening / closing mouths. All very scary if you're aged five!

    I'll catch up with reading after my tea. Thanks for all the good wishes folks.

    No problem Dumpling I'm all sorted now. I didn't get time to read earlier. I hope the girls have had a better day and that you are managing some time for you.

    Judi just GRRR.

    Gers glad to hear your mother is perking up. Single room? They must think she's royalty

    I got sick of waiting to hear about the diving. Binned it. We went bouldering again instead, and now we are going out for dinner. Looking forward to my protein fest at my favourite Italian.

    DH still planning to cook tomorrow night as well He's a very good cook, just takes forever. I've managed to talk him out of a starter. Steak main course, and tiramisu dessert. Hopefully we'll eat before midnight

    My evening hasnt got any better... Youngest has spent £300 on a gaming console. Grump wasnt very pleased as he has tried to help him pay his insurance by telling him he doesnt have to pay board for 12 months.... As i told him, well he might as well blame himself as Youngest has got as much money now as he did before his accident.
