    'S OK @Mel dCP your unit and mine will do nicely to deal with the nasty just into double digits I don't want before bed.

    I'm also going to celebrate I'm up past 9.00 p.m. for the first time in a week and haven't had to rely on an alarm for the 10.30 p.m. basal.

    Off to bed soon after a busy day and the weather is getting hotter too ! .
    I have been asked to cover a school run until Tuesday, 30th July, which surprised me as I didn't know any schools were still going to be open that long, but I am pleased to do it, so more experience and money too :)
    Nighty night zzzzzzz

    Good morning! Sunshine streaming in. Gearing self up for looking after grandson in the expected heat. We have water play planned and lashings of sun cream. But also bifold open at back with sun canopy down. Had a good nights sleep with window open and fan on. Lovely straight line of 6. Happy days.

    It's an excellent smell absorber. My mum always had some in an eggcup in the fridge. I've used it in the fridge where meat is kept (the dogs still eat it), not because the meat is bad but because I just don't like the smell.

    Good morning all, good to be back. Woke on 6.0, then it went up a bit, seems to happen when I have a first cup of coffee, and it's decaffinated, it says on the label. I think it might just be waking up. Anyway I corrected by 1 unit, and that seems to be ok.

    I think I'm going to try some of this networking thing today...............:(:)

    Morning all, woke on a ridiculous 11, I was going to bed on a low 6 which usually menas I need to eat something to get through the night. So I did, and look what happened this time. Hey ho, my day's going to be spent in the garden if I can find somewhere cool or inside if I can't. Thunderstorms predicted here later, have a good day all whatever you're doing, and stay cool - literally!

    Good morning. 4.9 first thing, which was 6 am, an hour after the puppy woke me to take her outside. I feel tired, sitting here drinking my coffee and watching all of her fun and games. It must be hot enough today to bring the paddling pool out. Last year I sat in the pool on a chair, and the dogs refused to come in. Today is do something with that 'marrow' day. (Oh the fun of being on Summer break.) Unfortunately, I don't have any chickens to feed it to so will have to try some of the other suggestions. Because it's so enormous, I could try multiple things. Hmmm. Well, I'm off for my 20-minute interval run and an hour-long dog walk before it's too warm.

    I don't think I've actually ever had marrow? I read it's supposed to be similar to zucchini? But somewhere a site said it can be done to resemble spaghetti? I love spaghetti squash but that's yellow..................

    A sunny morning from Oxford. The only weeding I'll be doing will be in the shade, that's where the very stingy, stinging nettles are.
    I've just found this site which may be of interest, but haven't tried any

    Morning all! It's predicted too hot here later on, so I'm off out to test my new "Out for a long walk" backpack before it gets hideous. Usual brand of backpack is absolutely fine for workdays walking and I've worn out at least five of them over the years, but it's slightly too small for carrying the usual items, plus wet weather gear/food plus any shopping I might pick up on the way back home. It had a test walk yesterday afternoon and I was so much more comfortable as it's also got space for me to shove the "Japes' Meds bag" in the top without having to squeeze it in as I have to with the workday one.

    Back in most sensible single figures this morning as well.

    @ert - ooooh, a paddling pool. Just sit in it - no chair - bet the dogs will jump in and keep you company. My youngest would, but the older one thinks he'll dissolve if exposed to water (at least, that's what I gather from his huge objections to being near the stuff).

    Busy day today, once it gets started, so I'm making the most of the lull before the proverbial.

    Be well! Stay as level as you can whilst remembering to enjoy life. We are not robots - forgot who said that but it is so very true!

    It's a bit more carby than the coconut or almond, but it is gorgeous! Worth every single one of the carbs.

    I have some and I do know you're meant to, but somehow .. I use the alcohol swabs for cleaning off the house phone or any sore scrapes I've given myself. But you are meant to, so if you do use a wipe then it's no bad thing at all. Very safe way to do your injections.

    @SueJB Thank you!
    That twosleeves recipe for blueberry ice cream looks good and that it can be made with vegan replacements.................. I might try it with stevia.
