    Old Style Daily Sunday 15 April 15th Apr 18 at 7:32 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

    Hi everyone,

    Just a quick post from France.

    DH arrived a couple of hours ago & DSis has just fed us roast pork (no crackling in France) peas, carrots & green beans with DH making the gravy - he is a whiz at making gravy

    We have planned out where to start on the decluttering/binning/csing/packing but it is a mammoth job The work starts tomorrow BUT now DH is here, he & DSis are doing some work now while it is still light & there is much laughter My DH’s arrival has definitely perked me up - now I am less depressed at the enormity of the task - maybe not impossible just improbable

    Can only post while I am downstairs as the walls are all solid & six inches thick

    Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and hugs to everyone but especially to Holly.
    I hope your GP can help ease your mind Holly and get you set up for the happiness & stress free life you so richly deserve. I so admire your determination to get on with it even though at times it must seem like the world is conspiring against you. However all your virtual friends are here, encouraging you & wishing you well and reminding you how happy you were the first few days you were at home. I think a menu plan is a wonderful way to remind yourself that you are a wonderful & worthwhile lady who DESERVES happiness & contentment & a life free from fear I so wish I could do more but know that I am sending you lots of hugs & a shoulder to lean on when you need it.

    Not so quick a post
