    Haha I meant a Knight in shining armour (beeping autocorrect) and agree Sting is probably a bit past it now although I think he’s still alive and retired gracefully. Perhaps he could lull any potential attackers with his singing?

    I doubt you have time to be bored. You always seem to having something going on. Have a good evening.:)

    I’m considering getting out of my pyjamas.

    And into some fresh ones.

    As you were.

    I did have 2lbs of blackberries to freeze, across 3 freezer boxes, but I dropped one of the boxes and lost half a box full when a bus arrived earlier than anticipated! There are still loads out there, so I'll probably have another blackberrying amble tomorrow after cutting the grass and the usual Sunday Morning gig on the organ stool.

    I tend to have a handful of berries with some yogurt at least once a day, so with luck, they'll last me a while. Unless I entertain friends who like blackberry and apple crumble, of course.

    Period is making my life pretty miserable, I don’t know how many hypo treats I went through. But apple crumble anyone?

    Had Salmon en Croute for lunch today, just to keep Dafne happy, as I was in trouble with them over my choice of LCHF. So Dafne if you were watching from the shadows or a fly on my wall, I did eat the crispy parts of the pastry. I had a much more positive day today, getting on with getting on. Friday, I walked around in a haze, realising I was clinically dead without insulin, after receiving my latest c-peptide. But it's just a number. I'm alive and on insulin. And I can do anything. Even eat crispy pastry.

    Oh, I love stationery. Unfortunately growing up and knowing what was good quality stationery and what wasn’t has made it a bit too expensive. I have a soft spot for Japanese gel pens and 120gm writing paper.

    It looks as though it could be. I am officially semi retired as of today and drop down to 3 days a week with Mondays and Fridays off - after working full time for over 40 years it seems a bit surreal but sure it won’t take me too long to get used to it :D:D:D
