    @Fairygodmother I have been watching the results but didn't stay up for them. My hubby had an eye check up Tuesday and we came home and turned on the TV and started watching/listening and forgot about my dogs nail clipping appointment and my husband forgot he had a zoom call from his beach clean up group . We completely forgot about both lol. It still is undecided. But our population seems to be solidly split.

    Oh that’s both funny and understandable @Marie2; I had to have a look when I woke briefly, as usual, at 04.00.

    Afternoon, just having a cuppa before the school transport picks me up. The weather has been glorious again, so yesterday and this morning I have been out in the back garden with Autumn, she a little jittery, but curious and inquisitive too. I watched her and was playing with her with some leaves and gave her a small bowl of food too. My little autumn is growing up. But, when she was in and she was by the window, Ziggy cat from next door walked onto our patio, Autumn saw him and she was growling with a low hiss too. They'll get used to each other in time................ fingers crossed :)
    Hope you are all keeping well and staying safe.

    Received my email from Matt overnight. To be honest life will just continue in the same vein. We are on hols at the moment and as lockdown occurred way after our arrival, house owner checked and we can stay. Out early for a beach walk. Couldn’t see another person in a 360 view. Social distancing at its best. Even have Christmas week supermarket delivery booked as we pay a year in advance for Morrison’s delivery’s. It was not dear and worth every penny.
    However, as we enter lockdown no 2 I know I am very privileged in that we have a weekly income. Not huge but we are very frugal, and neither of us need to go to work. Though Matts email makes it plain I wouldn’t need to go anyway.
    Blood levels are 80% in range between 3.9 and 8.5 for the past week so very happy. I have had less ups and downs since I changed to Tresiba about 3 months ago. And even less since I got a half unit pen. Happy!

    Hi all, I need some help. Someone wants to know where they can get different insulins in New South Wales.They have a dog on Vetsulin and the vet is saying only vetsulin is available for dogs. But that one is making them sick and they want to try another one. The other more commonly used insulin for dogs in the US is Novolin N, So does anyone know where they can specifically get Novolin N or any other insulin, but for a dog, in New South Wales?

    Hi,

    What I do happen to know. Is Vetsulin is a weaker potency? U30 maybe U40??? Most insulins for humans is a U100. (Though it is possible to get a U300, if insulin resistant?) so the usual dose would need to be adjusted for a dog the wrong potency could be too much for the hound..

    Yes, they use them both over here and use different syringes and different amounts.

    Good morning everyone.
    Lobster @SueJB! Luxury lockdown. Fish pie for us, when I’ve made it and persuaded Big Brian (cat) it’s not for him.
    4.1 waking this morning, I seem to have the opposite of the simyogi at the moment.
    Basal’s been reduced for colder weather, however, the year gets even stranger: for the very first time some of the fig’s noblets, the second fruiting, have swelled and ripened enough to eat. They’ve never done that before. I’ve always called them noblets as they’ve always just been green knobs. Not sure whether to be pleased or disturbed.

    Bonfire celibrations public locations last night in my area... As far as the eye could see.
    I live in an elevated position so get a decent view of it all.

    I suppose when you spend the equivalent of a defence budget of a small country on explosives you don't want them to go to waste?
    Not the sort of "thing" you can keep quiet...

    Bad timing with a second lockdown.. There were a fair few blue flashing lights up & down the main road too..

    Along with the C19 public information stuff, something I haven't heard since the 1970s. Firework safety info..

    You can't beat a bit of hard driving "old school.."

    @Jaylee we are in a prominent position overlooking Leeds which is in a basin. Away at moment in middle of nowhere, didn’t hear a thing. Security cameras back home picked up Armageddon!

    Afternoon all, I remember as a kid my Dad having a tin for our fireworks and being very sensible. That didn't account for forgetting to put the lid on the tin and a jumping jack being let off (not by him) and of course jumping into the tin. Fortunately the only damage was all our fireworks going off at once.

    Because so many people have fireworks at home these days, I'd prefer to see them only sold to licensed displays. Even here in rural Somerset they do a lot of damage, scaring wildlife and domestic pets, to the extent that some panic so badly they get injured or worse. Call me a killjoy and I don't care :grumpy:

    Afternoon guys, not working this afternoon as I'm off to the hospital for laser treatment on my left eye. It was so foody/misty this morning, but the sun came out and it's glorious weather outside.
    Autumn went in the garden again today, she is doing well and I watched her jump up onto the back fence, my heart was in my mouth in case she jumped down over the back ( I know she will at some point, but still feeling a little anxious) so I called her name and she came running to the open window. She got some dreamies treats and lots of praise for being a good girl :cat:
    Autumn can certainly go through the cat litter lol, hopefully daughter and her partner will get some tomorrow, as It's too heavy for me to carry.
    Enjoy the rest of the day and keep safe.
