    Good morning all
    Woke to a 6.1 and am now on 11. Same last night for tea....maybe the cough I have had the the last few days, so will wait it out for a bit.

    @Cumberland so sorry to hear the sad news about Banger.....sending ((HUGS))

    @Knikki was just wondering the same thing! Sure he will pop up in the next day or so

    Morning all!

    I’ve seen Kev popping up on Facebook, so he’s around, just not here. Also, anyone wanna do my tax return?

    BG smooth and in the fours overnight, mainly because I had solid sleep. I’ve been amazed at how poor sleep impacts insulin sensitivity, I never noticed it before running normal levels.

    Teenager just got home from a week at his dad’s, so we’re having fun comparing our new smartwatches.

    I am attempting a yoga tonight. Wonder how that’ll go?

    Whenever and wherever I walked around the house he stuck to me like glue - we even bought a little bell to go on his collar so we could hear him as he was so tiny I feared I might accidentally tread on him

    He loved his cuddles he just wanted to be near us all the time

    Thanks for your kind words

    Take your time, @CranberryIce, if there’s a lot then it may need it. We look forward to your return when you’re ready, but take good care of yourself in the meantime.

    Oh @Cumberland you looked after him so beautifully, and were so kind to him, the poor little thing.

    Hopefully, when you feel better about it, you'll have a think about what you want to do next. Another dog would love to be loved like that.

    Hi, engineer has been out and located fault outside and has got my landline working again, but the main issue is still outside which will be fixed in due course. It's quite cold here in Hampshire and Pebbles cat is snuggled up the back of the sofa behind me, bless her little heart :):cat:
    Hope your day is going well :)

    Devastation, no Jaipur for Mr B, I was OK with wine and soda. Scrummy food, phed prik paow but it had a huge impact on BG. I should have guessed by the name really................ sweet chilli duck. It wasn't sticky and it only tasted a little sweet. I blame it on the rice. BG slowly going down so let's see what tomorrow brings

    Oh Cumberland - Poor little chipolata. It must be such a blow for you and MrsC.

    Let's hope 2019 turns a happier corner for you.

    I had an afternoon in town with my lovely blue stick, it’s got flowers all over it. I originally saw it as a temporary measure but now see it as a lovely friend that ensures I get a seat on the bus, get tea brought to the table in a cafe, smiles everywhere (I do smile too), and it’s a great limiter of shopping so it might even save some money for me.

    Overnight hypo, woke the husband by talking wildly about Google being in my brain! Anyway he asked if I was OK so I tested and sorted. Child has been giggling wildly at the story of Global tech giant probing mum’s brain.
