    Thank you @loulou99782 I am better, I've just had my hair cut, I was looking like myself in the 1970s !! Got a more suitable hairdo for a "lady of a certain age" now. What's everyone up to today?. Hubby and I are taking our son out to lunch, he likes McDonalds so I'll have some veg soup before we go out and abstain at McDs

    I'm working from home today so just about to go to the gym. Then off to the second week of the Expert course which is being delivered by Trudi Deakin (I'm very lucky that her company is literally around the corner). It's from 3 to 5.30 and there's only 4 diabetics, one prediabetic and some of her staff so it's very hands on! I'm going to miss the next two weeks as I'm in London for work and then on hols in Tenerife but she's promised to give me the reading to do in advance and answer any questions. I'm feeling a lot better now that I'm back at the gym, just sore coming down the stairs!

    It's been a chores day today, I caught up on housework this morning and popped to Sainsburys this afternoon. I've been catching up on old episodes of Shetland so I squeezed one in before DS got back from college, the episodes are 2 hours each so they're rather time consuming! Doing dinner now before I ring mum. My younger brother visits my older brother on Monday night so mum likes a natter before EastEnders :)

    Morning everyone, 6.7 today. Going to visit mum later, it's a good half hour walk each way so plenty of exercise. Slight problem is the 50 mph winds we're expecting! Wish me luck :)

    6.7 this morning not happy with that. I will need to have a good think as to why it's going up.

    Say hello to mum for us @Diamum5972 and enjoy your walk. It's horrible here lashing rain and high winds so, no walk for me. Suppose I'll have to run up +down our stairs a few times or get the Zumba DVD on. @*##*@ diabetes!

    @loulou99782 not even warm clothing and waterproofs could cope with the stormy weather up here. This part of Scotland's not so "bonnie" today. You have a lovely day down there in London x

    Howling a gale here @loulou99782. Gusts over 60 MPH and hope there's no power cuts. My shoulder is still painful and stiff and my physiotherapist thinks it might be Diabetic Frozen Shoulder.

    I've got shoulder rotator cuff syndrome and talking today with a physio about it, was told diabetics are more prone to this and that they don't know why. Interesting!

    I have a very stiff, painful and weak right shoulder and today my physiotherapist said it is rotator cuff syndrome or Frozen shoulder. Only imagining and further tests can tell. It's blooming painful though and she said it could take 4 months minimum to start making progress. Surgery is a last resort, I have had key-hole surgery done on my left shoulder two years ago.

    I thought my leg problem had resolved itself but it's back today with vengeance. Back is very stiff too.
    I need to sum up the interest to see GP about it for some help. Painkillers work but should have shoved off by now if a trapped nerve.
    If weather not too bad saturday or home football match on I might try going back to swimming. Fingers crossed. ;-)
