    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 underfoot and wind has subsided, yesterday morning was glorious sunshine although very windy, then it clouded over in the afternoon and we had a couple of very heavy downpours, then sunshine and showers - but the air is quite cool. I do have washing to put out will check the forecast first.

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

    Dinner last night was a cheeky takeaway - lovely all eaten and enjoyed by us all, so tonight we'll have the chicken that I got out to defrost for last night, I'll serve that with mash, veg and gravy.

    I was on an all day course yesterday and quite a lot of the content I am familiar with due to past experiences but it was good to be out of the office and take part in something worthwhile.

    So on to today -

    I'm now on days' off, so this morning I need to go into town to visit the bank and building society, then I have all the normal chores to do, I must get some washing done as the dirty wash basket is full and has been all this week although I did do a wash Monday then another Tuesday but it didn't get pegged out due to the weather. I also need to do some housework, house is a bit of a pit, so this is a must.

    Keep safe and well x

    Hi everyone
    Had a wander round town this afternoon after work and before a doctors appointment. Got some bits from Home Bargains and B and M and consequently took a few things off my Tesco order for Saturday when I got home. One was Nairns oatcakes - 65p at Home Bargains and 99p at Tesco - exactly the same.
    Doctor put cough medicine on my repeat prescription as its helping a bit, zapped a weird spot on my arm and when I said that last winter she said I should have had a flu jab she gave me one. So all sorted - flu jab has given me a headache though.
    Got some reduced spring rolls defrosted I'm going to do for tea with some egg fried rice.
