    Old Style Daily Saturday 11th August 2018 11th Aug 18 at 1:45 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

    Afternoon all, I was up at 3 because of painful mouth but went back to bed and slept this morning. I've just had a warm bath and I don't think I'm even going to bother trying go achieve anything much today, though I did yesterday.

    Great news Gers about your mum.

    Thinking of those of us who are sad or worried or unwell.
    I was jumping to conclusions and one of them jumped back

    Mrs Salad Dodger
    Afternoon everyone & thanks for starting us off Holly - enjoy your day

    Sending hugs to the poorlies, carers & anyone else who wants one.

    Thursday & Friday were miserably wet & chilly but today has been dry, overcast but warmer
    I stayed up all last night to make sure DH was up in time to take DSis to hospital for what I will euphemistically call a ‘lady scan’ Then he took her for a full English & lots of tea as she was on water only from last night prior to the scan.
    The last few days I have been a lazy c*w as I cannot seem to summon up the energy to do anything

    Will give myself a good talking to over the weekend

    Have as good a weekend as possible everyone

    Good morning all

    Thank you for starting us off Holly, hope you have a lovely day

    My thoughts are with everyone who having a hard time

    Not sure if I will be able to post, taken me two hours to get my laptop to work. It says I have no memory,I have deleted loads of stuff (about 200MB) but it says I only have 5.96MB space left, don't understand anything techie. Laptop keeps shutting down. Huge file for HP printer support, don't know if I need it or if I can delete.

    Hope you all have a good day

    I searched back and found the same thing. I seem to remember that she said a few days ago that someone in real life had come across her posts so maybe she has cancelled her account and asked the team to delete her past posts.

    I hope she is all right and will miss her posts.
