    Old Style Daily Thursday 17th May 17th May 18 at 5:03 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.

    My neighbour is here doing the fencing. At the same time the farmer's wife (my nearest neighbour) is walking her two working dogs and an orphaned Hebridean lamb called Dave!

    Evening all!

    It's been a lovely day so far, think rain is threatened for tomorrow.

    My morning was spent watching my new fencing going in. Then I went off to ivigilate one student doing his N5 French Reading / Writing / Listening exam. He had extra time so was in a room on his own with me.

    When I got home the two chaps had done so much, it's admirable how they just set to. Not everything is finished but my neighbour is coming back after his childs' bath time to do more. It's all very exciting for me.

    I've only really eaten a bowl of cereal and a sandwich today, just too busy making coffee and being interested with the men at work!

    Hope that the Leeds visit for the TA's was less stressful than before.

    Evening all ((((((((((hugs)))))))))) if you need one.

    We have been down to Heligan today, will not bore you with the details of the horrendous journey be honest I was a bit disappointed,lots of trees and glorious rhododendrons and azaleas, some wonderful shaped trees.....the amount of work that has been put in is amazing. We had a cup of tea in the cafe, £2.40 each, a bit steep.

    We had taken a picnic and ate that before moving on to Mevagissey, we sat on the quay watching the boats and has a cornish ice cream.

    On the way home we stopped off at the Coddy shack for fish and chips, it was absolutely scrummy, the batter on the fish was lovely and crisp. We really enjoyed it.

    Yes GERS much less stressful not doing battle with people shoving and pushing trying to get on the buses and trains first. Grr some people are so impatient.

    The car duly arrived and got us there on time for our appointment, We then reported back to transport afterwards and we only had to wait 15 minutes for our return car driver calling our name out. Back home again by 2.30. Usually it takes up most of the day! Transport has been booked for our next appointment and the lovely nurse on Oncology said to the clerk not to forget to add plus escort as I am like his right arm and he can't function without me!! She has got to know him well over the years!!

    I am just awaiting the arrival of the 3 DGDs for late tea, after swimming/diving, and then a sleepover before tomorrow's school run. DD on early shift and rather than bring them bleary eyed at 6.30 in the morning it's better for them to sleep here!

    No prize for guessing what's for tea! The customary Thursday Pasta Bolognese Bake for when they arrive starving after the exercise!

    Have a nice evening folks. Not good news NELSKI, they do seem to be messing you about a bit. GERS I think I need a Dave in my life too. So cute. xx
