    My house was stacked to the gunnels with bath bombs as Keiran used to make them to sell on EBay when he found demand was too great for him to keep up with he stopped but we were left with loads of them so now we are gradually getting rid of them one bath at a time.

    @Bluetit1802

    I have to admit Sapphires are a little bit beyond my means at the moment but they are a beautiful stone. So will have to think of something else not that Judith doesn't deserve sapphires though. :)

    Hope you have a wonderful 43rd in the summer with plenty of sunshine and wine.:)

    Something sapphire blue would be nice.

    There will certainly be plenty of wine. Whether there is sunshine is in the lap of the gods. We were married in August 1976. Remember that year? The hottest summer on record. Stand pipes in the streets. Water restrictions everywhere. But it was wonderful, and a wonderful day to have a wedding.

    Happy Anniversary!

    I am doing well. Quiet day, much needed after an unexpectedly busy/stressful week.

    I could tell you, but that wouldn't be very polite now.
    Cheers!

    I've been waiting for a book pickup that apparently isn't going to happen after all. I will give her another 40 minutes and then will join you in a virtual glass (and virtual cheese).

    Sounds like a lovely day, @heh

    All well here, tired from helping out someone getting their ship ready for the first sailing group of the season (mainly attaching sails and untangling about everything) and making some some money :), and now trying to diabetes my way through Chinese takeaway :hungry: I think I may have found the trick; have a small portion with a lot of insulin early, followed by a bigger portion some 2 hours later (when bg starts dropping rather alarmingly) with a lot less insulin. Second portion was only a half hour ago so not sure yet. Should it work, don't ask me why, just acting on a hunch :p
