    O/S Daily Wednesday 4 October 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

    Still dark, not so blustery, dry underfoot but cooler, so relented last night and put the heating on, it's on at the moment but I'm going to switch it off in a while. I've got a load of washing ready to peg out, I'll do that shortly.

    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 pork steaks, mash, carrots, broc, HG green beans and gravy, ice cream for those that wanted some. Tonight we're having smoked sausage and mushroom pasta with creme fraiche sauce.

    Yesterday work was all or nothing, we were quiet for a while then everyone came in together and the enquiries were long and complicated. Today I'm working all day but doing a different job, so in an office on my own for most of the day, will see how that goes. I'll be on days' off after today so not back to work until Monday, except I have a training morning tomorrow which I must attend.

    Keep safe and well x

    Hi chums back home from my London trip and a really nice day.Took my sis-in-law to the cemetery and DD planted the spring bulbs for us and sis-in-law put some flowers down as well.They had been divorced for around 15 years but she still though the world of my brother and it was the first time since he passed away last year that she had been there.Then DD took us both out to lunch at a Toby carvery which was lovely and I won't be eating or cooking tonight as I am quite full up.

    Just as I got home DGS Danny rang from America which was so nice as he had seen Dds picture of us both on F/B and hoped all was well He was in transit to Arkansas via Atlanta on business and had an hours layover there.It was lovely to chat to him and he is very upbeat and enjoying himself in the U.S. A nice end to a lovely day for me

    silver-oldie I think you could be right, my late OH was born in 1933 and was quite 'old school ' when it came to ladies, a real gentle man although he was an ex boxer and our gentle giant bless him.

    Tonight I shall be putting my feet up and watching a bit of catch-up tv and relaxing after my day out
    Hope everyone is safe and warm and well

    Thank you. I've been thinking about doing this for a couple of weeks now. I want to, but am still plucking up the courage, silly I know I know for sure that all of you will be able to offer good advice. I think that over the weekend I will draft a post that gives enough of the background without boring you all silly .
