It’s April!!! Its only a little ‘daffy snow’ as my Ma called a snowfall that fell on the daffodils … 
… and here’s a new thread to chat with old friends and new about all the bits and bobs of life, and hold each other’s hands when times is tough …

    Brrr! We don’t often get a wind straight from the north here, but the sleet is rattling on the landing window … and that faces due north ….

    Morning @Dovefromabove

    'Daffy snow' here too, although it had an icy crust on it when I was scraping the car window to get Charlie to school.  :open_mouth:

    Charlie has gone in with his formal application to the new school, he had to have three recommendations by teachers and the principal and I was very proud to see what glowing recommendations they were too. Entrance exam, interview and Brevit to get through now.... poor lad, it's a lot of pressure when you're only fourteen. He is quietly confident, although a bi worried about the interview. I am sure they all will be though. 

    Off to volunteer at a Coffee Morning this morning, don't ask how I managed to get myself into that.... all in a good cause. 

    Catch up later, have a good day all.

    Well done Charlie … fingers very crossed for him 🤞 

    The temperature is rising a bit here thank goodness … I need a trip out to the farm shop later this morning … when I’ve written my list … ☕️

    Good April morning to you both @Dovefromabove and @D0rdogne_Damsel  and good afternoon @Pat E   I think you change the clocks this weekend - making things easier for communication with my friends and family.

    Cruel wind today - 3°C on the weather station but the wind makes the temperature drop.  

    Cruel times for you in the UK with the cost of living rise.  It's incredible!!  As I mentioned yesterday, there is a bun fight for flour, pasta and sunflower oil - all incoming from the Ukraine or thereabouts.  Of course, if you put that out on the news, then there is a beeline for those products, whether you need them of not!!  Anyway, when I went to do a monthly shop end February, I noticed that things had gone up considerably by around 30% !!

    Despite the wind, a walk down to the local market and if it's more sheltered down there, a quiet coffee in the ...sun !!  My egg lady should be there - they again will be going up what with the price of wheat.   Sheesh!!

    Stay safe, stay warm.

    Good morning all
    Good evening @Pat E
    Not sure about Grandma's theory @Dovefromabove it's not settled here as the ground is wet but there's plenty of snow and gusty winds.... not looking forward to gardening today!!!

    If you’re travelling over the bridge this morning @WonkyWomble you’d better check first … it was closed an hour ago due to an accident!

    Happy April to everyone,  no snow on the Daffs here but the shed roof is very white. I  hope that wind drops.
