    good morning all :)

    4.4 today

    we got a satisfying little stack of logs split and restacked yesterday, got to be good for the exercise level ;)

    It peed down all night here too @Bubbsie

    we're out volunteering today so I'm glad it's above freezing again this morning, perhaps I'll only need seven layers of lagging instead of eight :hilarious: (usually we help out at the depot site on Thursday and it's in a whopping industrial shed so it's seldom warm first thing in the morning).

    hope your day treats you kindly :)

    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen and all who are approaching the day differently, following your example me's are sneaking up on the day from behind and are going to smack it round the head, yep start the day with a bang.

    A low 5.2 for me this morning.

    Well folks have a great day, remember this day unique and will never be repeated unless you think Groundhog day is a true story.

    Is that the same weather app that changed its prediction, hour by hour last week from snow to fog to wind to rain to sun?

    Morning All. 6.2 at 08.30. I think I’ve got flu not a cold...went to bed at 8pm after failing to finish two scrambled eggs. But couldnt sleep for hours because of legs and back aches and teeth! Typical first year I got the vaccine! But I know it will pass and lets be honest nothing in the pool of health issues some of you deal with all the time.
    Poor OH getting odd meals from the freezer and trying to steer clear of the germs!
    Hope you all have a good Thursday. Stay well, stay safe.

    Good morning. It’s a wet and miserable start for the day but a nice 5.3 at 0650.
    Have a great day if you can, test out the waterproofing of your clothes and boots if you can’t.

    Winner for the log splitting and stacking - love both those jobs. Much easier to stay warm doing those as well.

    Morning everyone 4.3 today. How is everyone? Today my mum is going to put a new bed cover which I got yesterday on the bed :) then tomorrow we are taking my nanny out for fish and chips for her birthday (I know it doesn’t sound like a lot but as she has dementia a chip shop is more comfortable for her than a restaurant and there are lots of old black and white photos in the chippy of where my nanny lives) have a nice day everyone:)

    Morning all 5.5 from me today.
    Think I missed all the wind and rain, it’s nice and sunny here. I slept late as I got carried away with my book last night and didn’t go to bed until nearly 2am
    @PenguinMum that sounds like a really horrible bug you’ve got, stay warm and hydrated and hope it goes away soon.
