    Yes Happy birthday Sheila Haveagoodun, :good: Sorry morning all. ;-)

  • Morning all, and a very happy Birthday, Sheila x :rose: :rose: :rose: :cake: It is awful here both snowing and melting at the same time, and a very cold. Not fit to do much, so will sit at my Work Table, have Bird Houses to paint, and a piece of China to mend. Just before Xmas I bought a damaged piece of Porcelain from EBAY, it was of…[Read more]

    Am coming out of hibernation slowly, to see what you ae all up to. I hope all the peops with colds and flu are getting better QUICKLY!
    We have had :notacloudinsight: here all morning, and that rosy sky on Monday night fulfilled it’s promise too yesterday. Amazing what a bit of bright sunshine can do!

    Time to get up but I se Mick and Jenn lurking and I keep missing you both. Hope the family is improving Mick, I expect you have themwhite stuff :-( It probably hasn’t reached you Jenn. Stay warm and safe. :-)

    Morning clickers. So far only a tiny bit of the ‘orrible white stuff, hopefully no more as it is the hairdresser this morning. Got to do the ironing first, though. Stay safe and warm my snowy friends :-)

    • Morning Cilla, “Have to” do the ironing? :mad: I don’t think so. :lol: Safe journey for the coiffeuring honey. ;-)

    • Morning Cilla :-) surely not the best day to be coiffed ;-) Did you have a good time yesterday?

      • Morning girls. I have to do something as I’m not going out until11 Karen :lol: Yes thank you Jane. It was nice to catch up and plan our break in Ludlow with them. Lunch wasn’t great but you can’t win ’em all :lol: Visiting the antique shops makes you wish there were unlimited funds ;-)

      • Am amazed by the bossiness of your ironing pile, Cilla. Mine just sits there silently, probably praying for a bit of attention and feeling forlorn when it doesn’t get so much as a glance. I expect yours will want the vote next.

        • cilla replied 5 hours ago

          If I leave it another day Bean, it will start following me round the kitchen……and it is demanding a new iron now as well ;-)

  • Morning clickers :-) no snow – I think we’re at the edge of it – at least, I hope so! Take care if you’re unlucky and have the white stuff. Another reading day for me and a bit of learning on Future Learn. Have a good day everyone and keep warm!

    • Morning Jane. A slight smattering here but brrrrrr. You’ll be our own personal weather forecaster when you’ve completed the course ;-)

    • I also joined a FutureLearn course recently about the “push and pull of immigration” – but I’m finding it pretty boring so far. Weather would probably have been more interesting – we are all obsessed with it anyway.

      • I joined that one too, Sheila and feel the same. The earlier overview course was much better. The weather one has only just begun and it very straightforward to follow. Not many people on it yet. Next month I have Citizen Science: From Soil to Sky (Dundee Uni).

    Many Happy Returns Sheila @Beanstew

  • VegVamp posted an update 6 hours, 1 minute ago

    Good morning Clickers and thank you Jane for putting a huge smile on my face with such a happy photo. Perfect timing as it was a fairly awful night, with heavy winds and blizzards ; more of the white stuff has fallen this morning as well. An indoor day with coffee pot and book I think. Luckily my client this morning cancelled yesterday, so I ain’t…[Read more]

    • Morning Karen :-) I must say that OH thought I was completely barmy going out specifically for this photo yesterday but glad it cheered you up! Awful weather and I feel for everyone in NI, Scotland and the north of England. Thank goodness for books and coffee pots :good: Enjoy your day :-)

      • I’m not surprised OH thought you were nuts. :lol: Can’t to see Sheila’s reaction. :-) At least we still have power here, unlike some poor souls. :-( Yip, coffee pots and books rule. ;-) Did you get that work finished ok?

        • Easy peasy work but she still has the conclusion to finish, which should’ve been here first thing… Yep, snow and no power – can’t imagine having to cope with that without a generator :bad:

    • Good morning you two. Must say Jane, your weather looks colossal, and definitely conducive to skipping. I’d even skip if it was like that here. But you will notice that Karen and I are both clinging to the coffee pot like a pair of wimps – and hoping that the electricity supply continues…..

  • It’s a great day to be inside, and my heart bleeds for any homeless person unable to find shelter last night. Was awakened during the night not only by high winds but also by thunder – and I can see we have had several more inches of snow. It’s a great day for going nowhere and staying put – and that’s exactly what I’m going to do. Stay cosy everyone.

  • Allan posted an update 19 hours, 39 minutes ago

    Evening clickers, Raining stair rods here,Still it’s better than what you are having up north,

  • Afternoon clickers :-) the birds have been eating a lot today – not surprising in this cold! No snow here but very windy with the occasional heavy shower. Off to chop some veg for dinner. Hope you all have a nice evening :-)

  • Ambersparkle posted an update 1 day, 3 hours ago

    Morning all, white as far as the Eye can see here, with icy cold Winds as well, glad I do not have to go out in it. Got the OT coming this Morning, about getting one of those Beds that you just press a Button, and they hand you a Cup of Tea, or something similar, so it is, Hello, and Goodbye, dear Friends. be back later. x Tina x

  • Morning all, there’s this big shiny thing in the sky, giving of brightness and causing me to turn lights off and feel events so optimistic& uplifted even :giggle: we have :notacloudinsight: yippie, the bed linen is out on the line as we have a nice breeze for drying :good:

    Saw a programme about the Galloway Forest and surrounding area last night, Mick – and thought about you. I don’t think it’s where you are, but it’s a sight nearer. Hope life is good just now, and the weather isn’t interfering too much with your work at the moment. I’m just off – but I wanted to say hello before I went. Waving……

    • Good evening shelia ..been watching it myself I know a few of the lads who work at the hatchery Chelsea was at the hatchery just before Xmas they will go back and release them and then go to the pond for a fish.shelia it’s my surroundings the forest.

    :-) 👋👋

  • Some work due in December for handing in on Friday has just arrived ;-) Must get on. Have a good day and be safe :-)

    • Jez, why do they do that?! Good luck with it Jane. :clover:

    • What on earth would these daft students do, leaving everything until the last minute, if you were absolutely chok-a-blok and simply couldn’t squeeze their work in? They must have childlike faith in you, Jane – it’s quite touching.

    • Morning Jane, is that the December coming!!! As the others have said just as well you are on the ball. Hope you get a chance to take five with a coffee :good: :rose:

    • Morning girls :-) I forecast it would arrive this week ;-) Fortunately it’s a short one and I’ll be rounding up my figures when the bill goes out ;-) HAGD

  • Beanstew posted an update 1 day, 5 hours ago

    I will spare you a full description. Suffice it to say that it took me about 5 minutes to get my knickers on this morning, and I probably won’t bother to put on any more clothes this morning, because the most comfortable position possible is lying flat on my back. I pulled my back yesterday at the foodbank, and it may take a couple of days to…[Read more]

    • Good morning Bean. You have my empathy having suffered numerous bad backs during my gardening career. My physio told me to lie on my front on the floor, arms at the side which relaxes the spine…….of course you then have to find a way up again. But lying down for long is not good. Ibroprufen should help. I hope it gets better soon as it is…[Read more]

      • Would not dare get into that position, Cilla – I’d never get up again. As it is, I am only upright by virtue of pulling myself up using the full strength of my arms. The phrase “beached whale” springs to mind.

        • get a tea towel BS – run it under the cold tap, wring it out and place on the bad area – (peel yourself off the ceiling from the cold compress – no only joking) the blood supply to the injured aea is reduced and as the T Towel warms up new blood goes to the injured area and this helps healing, osteopath told me this – used to put a disc out at one…[Read more]

    • Morning Sheila :-) I really feel for you with your back! I hope it doesn’t take you too long to get upright – I can only remember my own recent experience. Try and walk around every half hour or so.
      Glad to hear about the trees.

    • Oh cr@p, deepest sympathy Sheila, that is horrible. Have to say I did wonder what was coming when I read your 2 opening lines. ;-) Take it gently. :clover:

    • Oh Bean, just take it easy, hoping it will ease as the day goes on, a hot bath possibly?
      Enjoy making your plans for your newly acquired space, I love planning it in my head and on occasion putting pen to paper. Sending lots of get well wishes your way. As it’s snowing indoors is the best place. :rose: :rose:
