Hello folks.
I have decided to create a daily chit chat thread where anyone can pop in at any time and say hello, share their news etc or just tell us the weather in your area.

For some people on here who live on their own, its a way of just keeping in touch either daily or weekly, its really up to yourselves.

We all can add to other threads about particular topics like covid, the vaccines or whats happening in the world etc. So this is just for people to have an natter about anything they want.

Tonight as I type this, it is beginning to snow! Yep Easter snow and the wind has just picked up to gale force.
We had a long power cut last week and i was hunting through boxes to find the candles I had packed

Its now a unreal.

I expect you lot down south were on the beach in your bikinis :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

So there we are.
Off to make a cuppa whilst we still can.

Well it has been a glorious day here, I was in the garden most of the day in a T shirt, in fact I had sunscreen on. It was warm but not hot as there was a cool breeze. It is going to change tomorrow as the cold comes down this way. Apparently slightly warmer mid week then very cold again on Friday. Really weird weather.


LaGooner Report 4 Apr 2021 19:58

Ah Bisto Ann ;-) :-D :-D :-D


LondonBelle Report 4 Apr 2021 20:48

I hope you realise LaG that Ann is talking from experience ;-) :-D

Great idea, Florence :-D

I spent the afternoon digging forget me nots out of the garden. The flipping things spread like wild fire.Luckily it was a nice sunny afternoon, but not that warm. We are expecting your cold weather tomorrow unfortunately


LaGooner Report 4 Apr 2021 21:47

Earlier I checked ours and it said dry and sunny, I just looked again and it says light snow :-| :-|. Oh well bye to the gardening and hello to craft :-D


AnninGlos Report 4 Apr 2021 22:34

LG I had to look then to confirm I was not the Ann you were talking to. I couldn't see what Bisto had to do with gardening. And I was pulling up forgetmenots too, I love them along the edge where they are supposed to be but they seem to have formed an alliance with the celandines and spread across the garden.


LaGooner Report 4 Apr 2021 22:37

Sorry AnnG it gets confusing with more than one person with the same name :-D :-D

Caroline Report 5 Apr 2021 02:12

Over here in Ontario we had a lovely sunny warmish day just right for a walk after eating too much :-)

Anyone know how to calm an anxious/nervous dog down?

Lovely idea, Florence. I will try to get on here a bit more, so much going on here, my brain is addled! Lizxx

Good Morning Florence and Everyone :-)

It's been very sunny and pleasant for the last few days in South West Wales where I live. Today it's colder and very grey. I will pop in from time to time when I can, but I am more limited now as my OH is very poorly.

Wishing you a happy and successful thread Florence :-)

Morning Florence and Chit Chatters. :-)

Bright but chilly here.

Have a lovely day everyone. :-)
