    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.

    Good evening friends, and what lovely people you all are. Its when bad times happen that its so good to know that out there in various parts of the country tonight folk are thinking of me and my family and our Margaret.

    She is so sad bless her, I have just got home from London and apart from giving her a good hug and feeding her enough tea to float a boat we have been there for her .
    He literally just looked up at her, smiled,sighed and went , although we are all devastaed by the loss the fact he has no more pain or discomfort and is at peace now is in its own way strangely comforting.

    I shall be my friend Margaret's companion on her hard road as I have been where she is tonight, and it is so hard at times. as a few on here have been also.

    You have all been so supportive, and thank you all so much I wish I could give you all a hug as a good few are going through tough times ,but thanks to the site we will all be here for each other

    Thank you once again from myself and my family

    God bless you all

    NannyWindow, I went back to my normal self on Friday - sorted one small kitchen cupboard - 3 items in cs bag. Cooked twice - poached eggs on toast for lunch & a variation on a Ha..y recipe made from freezer, fridge & larder contents (as per Love Food, Hate Waste thread which has now vanished into the ether)!

    The rest of the day was reading MSE OS threads & clearing programmes from Planner.

    I am determined to do better on Saturday!

    Onwards & upwards
