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 away..lol

Its now a blizzard..wow 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.

In 2012, the bones of the last English King to die in battle were dug up from a council car park in Leicester.

One of his descendants was relieved to hear that the council waived the parking charges.

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.

Hello Florence.
I for one is going to love this new thread, just what folk like me needs to keep in touch with GR people. Thanks Florence, long may it run!

Not much happening here just now, Bank Holidays don't do anything for hubby & I these days, can't go anywhere because of the various rules, & too old to be able or bothered anyway! making Sunday / Holiday dinners are as exciting as it gets these days. LOL.

I do hope all those looking in have had a nice weekend.

Joan.

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.
