    I needed some food shopping, but it was too hot to travel to next town, so I just did the local shops. I needed 4 different shops. I was the only silly sausage wearing a mask.

    So Covid-19 doesn't exist?
    And people were coughing in each shop...a lot...

    Then in Tesco Express the Manageress picked up a face shield from behind their screens and asked the till lady serving me who had worn it last and had it been cleaned...

    My eyes widened and raised to the ceiling to the till lady serving me, and her eyes said something similar...


    You mean, in Tesco Express the shop assistants share the same face shield?????

    Not been on forums for ages, stress of finally moving home, grieving for my beautiful boy Leroy, stress of lockdown and the joys of rehoming a very friendly very quirky and very mischievous Senior Staffy. All during continuing shielding. Not been actual shopping since January. Love our new home right by the beach, however not liking the hoards of day trippers and holiday makers, very good for business but no notice taken of social distancing, huge groups of teenagers and town has been heaving since mid July. Luckily heat not too much of a problem as not going outside and walls are minimum 2ft thick. Spending a lot of time settling dog in, she has some health issues and issues from being left in a garden for 8 years occasionally fed, never walked, never played with. Had a couple of major ops since being rescued but she is so friendly and loveable as long as you’re not another dog, cat squirrel, or children. They all scare her and some men too. so with all this going on, keeping to my 80 - 90 g carbs a day, why am I 10.6 fbg.? Yesterday did three fingers in succession 9.6, 12.6 and 10.8 all on the same hand. Usually around 5-6. Haven’t met new GP yet, they are keen on telephone call, don’t do them as need to lip read and don’t video call as don’t trust them. I know I’ll have to go eventually but putting it off as long as possible, plus beloved can’t take time off work to take me. Still losing weight slowly but surely.
    Any ideas or suggestions?

    Yes it was @dunelm


    Completely different combination. A beautiful forest of saplings, and a lovely orchid.

    I am relative new to all this, just over a year from diagnosis and others will probably give much better advise. However I have discovered unless I keep my daily carb intake below 30 grm my BG rises and I can only tolerate 20 grm in a meal or the same happens, maybe you need to experiment with even less carbs.

    Seem like you are on the case though which is good.

    Hi John,
    It is such a difficult parameter to measure.
    How does one measure something so subjective as offence? It may be the one causing offence did it without any intention at all. The offended may be of a snowflake disposition?
    Perhaps we should all learn to forgive each other more since we all unintentionally fail in some way every day!
    I think the country is going in the wrong direction.
    We cannot be constantly wringing our hands for the wrongs of our ancestors 200+ years ago.
    regards
    D.

    You wouldn't like it, it's a film ;)
    The first film was great but everything after that was pants. The tv series was just awful and I was so angry with the actor that I went out with his girlfriend just to tick him off.

    I did wonder how long you would last...

    Edit: Like @Alien Aspie I thought that first film was amazing...
