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 :-)

Good Morning Everyone, I woke up to blue sky and sunshine but it is now clouded up a little. Will the forecsters ever get it right ? :-D

Hello Florence and all,

A bright morning but really cold/chilly wind so far. I'd planned to go into the garden to weed the borders but it might have to wait for a warmer day.

Good morning all.
Wow what a morning.I ts white outside and I had a thought that i had missed Summer & Autumn and xmas had come early. Its snowing on & on and the garden is covered.
I truly hope it doesnt stay long or the biting wind to go with it. My daffodils are completely flat now and ruined! Mother nature knows no boundaries as they say.

So lovely to see lots of people on here. Heres hoping it will remain bright & cheery.

I made some Easter vegan chocolate cupcakes yesterday for the first time, iced them and 3 little mini eggs per cake. So delicious as normally because of my egg allergy, I cant eat cakes but these were very light & tasty.

Def not bikini weather here LG so gravy browning it is i think. Don,t want to look pasty white later

Dermot are you a middle child then? I did a study of families years ago on 1, 2,3 and 5 children. Its very interesting.
Well off for a shower whilst we have electricity. Have a good day all.

I have just looked at the forecast again and it is saying we are going to have sunshine all day but there are flakes of snow coming down now :-S


AnninGlos Report 5 Apr 2021 09:24

Good morning all, yesterday was glorious so I am pleased I took advantage and got a lot of weeding done and almost filled the garden bin. That is due collection Wednesday this week. Today here it is quite bright with a light breeze 6 degrees and cloudy. I do hope the snow does not get to us here although tomorrow didn't look good on the forecast with -3 forecast for tonight. Poor plants won't know what has hit them.
I do remember other years when it snowed in April.
Dermot, that is strange neither T or his brother had a middle name. sometimes, if someone doesn't like their first name they are useful, for some reason my son has three names, daughter has two but I think if I remember correctly, all her three boys have three. I think that was to use all the grandfather's etc names.
Enjoy bank holiday Monday whatever you are doing although when you are retired bank holidays like weekends all seem to be the same as normal days. In previous years we would go to a large flea fair at Malvern show ground on this Monday, as we would the May bank holiday. For obvious reasons I would not have gone this year anyway. :-)

Morning chit chatters, my Dad was a very keen gardener, he grew lots of vegetables but not many flowers and on one of the rare occasions we had had a lot of snow he said he didn't know why he bothered because everyone's garden looked the same.

ZZzzz - :-D

Went out earlier to pick some tulips before the cold and daffodil thieves got them. So cold I only picked a couple.

Heating is now back on.


Florence61 Report 5 Apr 2021 11:56

Bob,so glad you mentioned the hoover as mine really needs a spring clean.The rollers have so much hair etc all wrapped around them and needs removing.Snow showers on & off still.went to the bin and oh my brrrr blooming freezing.Yes heating going on again.
You are busy busy today Ann best way to be.

I decided that every Sunday Eve,I am going to write a list of jobs to do for the week no matter how small.When the week is up and you have a list of ticks,it will make you feel you did lots of things and that's good for mental well being.

Liz so glad you posted,was thinking hadn't seen you in here in awhile.If you need to off load we are here to listen not to judge.

Good afternoon everyone.
There was snow on the garage roof this morning. It is incredibly windy and really cold. I went for my usual walk this morning, it was really hard going walking against the wind. My watch records the distance and also the exercise minutes where my heart rate has been above a certain level. Today I did lots more exercise because of the wind


'Emma' Report 5 Apr 2021 13:46

Afternoon all :-D

Covering of snow here this morning but it didn’t stay long.
We have some flurries but not lying, cold wind with a
bit of sunshine.

Moon boots are back in the cupboard :-D

No snow here, lovely sunshine, but it was freezing outside.
I think it's going to be a really cold night - Betty (cat) is inside!
Sister brought her jig-saw up on Saturday, and cut a hole in the door for a cat flap.
Unfortunately, it's a bit wonky, and needs some work, which I only realised yesterday.
As it is a religious holiday for some, I didn't attack it with a drill, so still just have a hole in the door!
The cats love it! Betty has only been in to eat. otherwise, she spends her time on the garden table, or, if it gets chilly, in the pile of overgrown box hedging I hacked down 2 months ago.
She's in now - it must be cold!
