Good morning all

Hope you're all waking up to the same beautiful morning I was - promise of a gorgeous day and weekend so what more could we smoke free people require.

Last day at work for 3 whole days so yippee roll on this afternoon and finishing!

Hope everyone gets done what they want to so that we can all enjoy the long weekend.

Take care all and catch you later.

Not just carefree but stressfree day to all!

  • Hi Kath and all

    Just delete my blog as it appears that great minds think alike. :-)

    Just going to read your blog from last night, then got to pop to the hospital :-) and then back to work for a few hours :-o then 3 days off. Woo hoo...horray :-) :d ;-)

    Weather down south is excellent and forcast to stay that way

    Happy smoke free days

  • Good morning Sue

    Just thought I sneak in before anyone else was about - didn't realise you were waiting in the wings. Very kind of you to let my opening stand.

    You must be very brave to read anything of mine so early in the morning - be careful you may fall asleep as it could turn out to be boring!

    Hope everything goes well at the hospital and sure the hours at work will just fly by - you could always cheat and move the hands on the clock when no-one is looking!!!

    Snap as far as weather goes - let's hope that they're right for a change - surely they have to get it spot-on at least once a month!

    Have a good day and remember, together we can and are winning!

    Catch you later.


  • Morning all

    Can't stop, running late I suddenly realise! Got to take my daughter's cat to be spayed :(

    Hope it is all OK

    Have a lovely smoke free morning all. Back for a coffee later?

    Enjoy the day - nice long weekend for you all to look forward to. :)

  • Good Morning Everybody :-)

    What a lovely day, a really nice day to bring a baby Grandson into the world too :-) How exciting Sue. Being a Grandparent is one of the best jobs in the world :-)

    Kath, that's a lovely blue sky you have there, hopefully we'll have some of the same over these was soon :-)

    Betts, You're daughter's cat will be home and running around before you know it. We'll have a coffee waiting upon your return :-)

    Bunny Sue, Hope all goes well for you at the hospital :-)

    JillyGirl, I'm just about to make a fresh cuppa if you fancy it, we'll send one across for Sue too as I think she could do with one, with all this excitement :-)

    Morning Andi, have you any exercising planned today? I went to my yoga session last night :-)

  • Good morning Emjay, no, I think it's a rest day today - didn't get up til nearly 8. :o Must do something in the garden when I get back from shopping. See you later. :)

  • Hey Andi enjoy your gardening. Now your into your 2nd year of being a non-smoker. :)

  • Happy shopping Andi :-)

    Morning John, you're just in time for a fresh cuppa and a slice of cake with your name on it ;-)


  • Hi All

    Back from hospital and got the all clear for now although they said I should expect another "episode" within the next 6 years :-8 Driving back was excellent with the weather being so fine. Great day to be alive 8-)

  • Morning all,

    Builders just arrived with loads of Plasterboard stacked in my Hall... said they'd be back on Monday, for a full week of Hammering and Banging.... Not looking forward to that... but needs must.

    Oddly, not one of them smokes either, so that makes things easier for me as I won't have to smell any ciggies. Not that that greatly bothers me - but I agree, they can smell a bit inviting when they're first lit up.

    A busy day for all you budding Grandparents, I hope all goes well. I'm sure John will share his cake (with his name on it too), in celebration??!

    Still, bitterly cold and rainy here - no change there then, as this is a "normal Scottish Summer".... Grr!

    Stay safe and well you lucky Southerners... and enjoy the sunny warmth.


  • Hi Gill, sorry about having to live with all that plasterboard cluttering up the place. Do the builders not know that Monday's a Bank Holiday or don't you have it in Scotland? :o

    Cake from John? You've got to be joking! You've more chance of seeing a pig fly than get any cake out of him! :P :D :D

    By the way, unless you load your own pics on one of these on-line sites, you won't be able to put it in a post, you can only put them into blogs that you write. :)

  • Ta andi,

    I did have a go on this iPad, but photo would only show upside down! So I'll boot up the Comp sometime and have another go. Trouble with this iPad thingy - is it's just fine for simple stuff, but it's very limited for much else.

    It is a Bank Holiday up here, but my Builder ignores that... said he might show up on Sunday... if that was okay by me? I'd be booted off this site permanently... if I told you my reply. Sunday indeed!

    Have fun on here tonight you folks. See ya tomorrow.

    Gill, xx

  • Never mind Gill, weather been pretty rubbish here today too. We are only allowed on average one sunny day each month, back to thick cloud, cold winds but thankfully no rain.

  • Morning Gill, I'm sure the weather will eventually make it up North-North eventually. We (here in the North West) have had our wait for the sunshine to come from down South :-)

    Glad all went well at the hospital for you Bunny Sue :-)

  • Hi John

    I really like the look of these :)

  • Evening all

    Never got back for the morning coffee, and missed the cake - tho it sounds like John's not for sharing :) just caught up with the missing coffee now, and well ready for it.

    Problems with the car's brakes has caused a bit of a crisis, but in hand now.

    So much going on! At least the plasterboard's ready for getting up Gill, messes up the hall tho'. Still waiting for a bifold door to arrive for fitting at my daughter's so it's open to the elements when I saw it earlier today, so finger's crossed it'll be sorted soon!

    Poor little puss is back, and seems OK, but her brother seems to want to be licking her wound for her, so busy keeping him off!

    Glad that the hospital visit went OK bunny Sue - not sure what the 'episode' is, but hope it is not too bad?!

    Exciting news Sue :) . Please let us know asap if you have a grandson or granddaughter and all is well.

    Love the idea of some yoga Emjay. I did it years (and moreyears) ago, maybeI will have a go again - it is just getting the time at the moment. I must admit I feel very out of control on the time management front, always trying to catch up!

    Have a good evening everyone, and relish this extra long weekend ahead.. May the sun come out for all of us, north and south :)


  • Hello and a good evening to you all. Most of you should be looking forward to a long weekend. Sorry you missed the cake and coffee Betts. I too missed it but in all fairness I have

    been out with the family for a pub meal. So feel pretty full now. Had some reiki therapy this morning which seemed to help with my healing pains. Anyway anyone heard from Sue yet ,

    I hope they are all busy and the daughters still not in labour.

    John I love the look of the tea-light holders. You will have to send a photo when you use them with proper bulbs. I do hope Amors results come through quickly for you.

    Gill, I feel sorry for you with all that plasterboard . I had the same sort of problem about 3 years ago. Bet you will be glad when its all done.

    Bunny sue, so glad you got a good result from the hospital.

    Emjay sorry I never thanked you for the cuppa before. But I seemed to be so busy today.

    I don't know what time Pete finishes work today, but hopefully he has a long weekend to look forward to.

    Off for a cuppa now. :)

  • Am fed up again peeps, haha nothing new there. My feet are like two puddings almost as swollen as my daughters except I'm not 9 months pregnant. Yup been stopped smoking for 3 months and am now swelling up like a sponge. Grrrrr, really not impressed as it looks like I'm throwing weight on when I know it's water retention. Why is it only me that swells up when I stop smoking. Off to hospital on Monday to get my bloods done to test for thyroid, tho not holding out any hope for that as I don't really have any other symptoms - yet. The only good thing is I now have hot feet instead of the usual cold feet. Am excited to know how Sue is getting on with her new addition, wonder if he's arrived yet.

  • haha, me too John, as my current shoes are size 9 I've kind of had it unless I start wearing mens shoes. Will have to go barefoot.

  • Poor you, Shame your feet are swollen. Hope you get some answers from the hospital soon.

    Yes I am waiting for sue to contact us all. She will be over the moon. :)

  • Good evening all, missed all the excitement - my American friend was on for an hour just as I was going to come on here. :o She'd visited an old friend who called her motor-mouth and I said that was a really apt name for her. :D :D
