Relief all round seeing the Skipper’s post.. Wishing him calm waters for his continued recovery.

Equally nice to hear from you again as well DX Wombat.
It's been way too long.
Welcome back and thanks for making the effort and finding out
the news about the FSL and passing it on through Wholi and Radz.

Good news indeed to hear from the FSL. Saved me buying a stamp
Just wait until he realises the forum has changed its looks - some salty words may be uttered.

Come back early from me canal - t'was more than a bit wet.

Speaking of weather (well, some do), the BBC has told me twice today that there is a chance of snow in this part of the world on Monday!

Good to see you aboard FSL. I was going to pipe you on board but someone has taken the pea.

Welcome back Tony! One hopes the recovery process continues without any major issues. Good luck.

Not that sure it was worth getting up this morning.
+5C, raining and a day full of the wet stuff promised.

A retirement "do" to attend this evening but apart from that the world is my oyster.

Rather overly damp here with forecast of continued vertical aqueous precipitation. One will spend couple of hours standing in the rain watching the sproglettes play football.

Not nice weather. Good to see the skipper onboard, would have personally delivered the best wishes earlier in the week as had to overnight in Gatesheed. Beer and cheese day.

Whew! I also was getting worried about The Admiral! Get well soon Mate!

All those who are experiencing the wet weather; Please send some here to South Australia! It's been so flamin' dry since last October around here that the trees are starting to chase the dogs!!

Had a wonderful reunion lunch with former colleagues from the Dept. of the Attorney General. Without question the best group of people I have ever worked with ... an association marked by a complete absence of office politics and a genuine attitude of looking after each other. Some sadness there too because two of the people were leaving and also because I discovered that one of my former colleagues had died of cancer. We had a wonderful time reminiscing and "talking department", discussing the new judges and reminiscing about those who had retired. Many stories were re-told about funny or sad courtroom incidents resulting mostly in gales of laughter all round. And one of the best things ... not ONE person looked at their mobile phone for the whole three hours!!! In fact the only time they made an appearance was in order to take photos, after which they were put away again! A really lovely day!

"Merger talks between British supermarket chains Sainsbury's and Asda are at an "advanced" stage, Sainsbury's has confirmed.
The two brands are expected to be retained should a merger go ahead.
Sainsbury's and Asda - the UK arm of Walmart - are the second and third largest supermarkets in the UK.
The combined group would comprise 2,800 stores and would represent 31.4% of the UK grocery market - slightly more than that of market leader Tesco." bbc

Thanks for sharing that, Bluey. How lovely to hear of such a happy reunion. I'm part of a group of volunteer gardeners who went to the same school, who are now scattered around the world. We manage to get together 4 or 5 times a year for a week's work each time. The friendship and delight in each other's company is priceless.

Dry but overcast and chilly, +5C.

It looks like angels may be heading for a change of uniform according to meadowrun's post.

Overcast but at least it ain't chucking it down at the moment. Me waterproofs are having a day off - I'll be sorting out the greenhouse today.

Took the family and assorted hangers on to Kew Gardens yesterday. Weather not kind but ok. 20 years since I've been and for once I was happily surprised. What a tremendous place that is. Can also do a bit of plane spotting too.
