    Old Style Daily Monday 14th May 2018 14th May 18 at 5:20 AM
    This is an ďover the garden fenceĒ type thread where we chat about everything Old Style and maybe a little bit more. Itís a great, inspiring and motivating thread we start each day to discuss what Old Style things weíre going to do today or what weíve achieved already. Everyoneís welcome, please do come in, put your feet up (although check the fence hasnít 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 donít post large pictures, or clip art Ė links are preferred. When you make a post, if you feel like giving it a title, that will help others that donít 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.

    Hello everybody,

    Just lost a long post, have been missing for a few days, OH has been unwell for the last week, finally diagnosed as shingles (for the second time, it could only be him!) Hopefully he will cheer up a bit as the meds take effect.

    Hugs to all suffering in any way.

    Happy holidays to the travellers.

    Evening all,
    Well what a day we've had ! Mr Fix It noticed that the tyre valves on the car were splitting so took it to the garage first thing. Long story short we needed 4 new tyres . As they were not in stock they had to be ordered and we had to wait till 4pm, all done now and £ 240 lighter . Good start to our hols !
    Anyway we went over the van and cleaned it, phew it certainly was very hot ! Then called in to Al*is where we met Dad who had been to the local hospital for a chest Xray. He should have gone last week but " couldn't be bothered". So we helped him with his shopping too, then dumped ours and set off to the garage. Got home about 5.30.
    All packing done, tea eaten and I'm now waiting for Mr Fix It to finish in the shower. All I have to do is put the DW on then I'm done.
    I shall be incommunicado until the 25th as the site doesn't have wifi. Maybe a good thing as I sem to be on the computer a lot lately, so I have packed 3 books for starters .
    Hope the TA's are well.
    Righty ho it's my turn for the shower. so I shall love you and leave you. Sending healing thoughts to all the poorlies and I've let the Sandman loose for the sleepless. Hugs to anyone who wants or needs any.
    Take care all. See you soon.
    Lots of love
    nan xx

    Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, but this time more intelligently
