    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, but it's been blustery from some time during the night, so doesn't sound very nice outside, although not raining, but it is wet underfoot.

    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 smoked sausage and mushroom pasta in a creme fraiche sauce, menfolk had a chicken and mushroom slice with theirs - they were in the fridge and needed using up. I remembered to get the chicken out to defrost for tonight's dinner which will be HM chicken, bacon and mushroom pie, mash, veg and gravy - good comfort food, which going by the weather is what's needed.

    I'm on days' off, but have work training to go to today, then I'll be going to town to visit bank and building society. Once I'm home I'll be getting on with the washing, drying and ironing and housework.

    Keep safe and well x

    Just to edit - it is now raining to accompany the blustery conditions - so now looks wet and wild.

    TA I'm sorry for your problems re the incompetence. It frustrates me that some people are so blase about cancer treatments. It may not mean much to them but to us it's not just our loved ones lives that are being affected, but ours too. Who knows how much time they have left as not everyone who has this awful disease can be cured. Makes me mad too .
    Hope Margot enjoys the ballet. I saw a performance in Cardiff a few years ago, it was magical and wonderful. It made me feel like a child again.
    Goodnight all.
