    good afternoon all :)

    4.4 today

    sorry, I still haven't caught up on the thread :sorry:

    mr gee has now been diagnosed as having had a small stroke last week :( we had to go up to the main hospital 40 miles away for tests last Thursday.
    I had to drive him there and ended up sitting in the hospital car park for the best part of 7 hours, I was only allowed into the clinic to confirm all our contact information. apparently they used to allow one visitor per patient to sit with them during breaks in testing regime but that's no longer allowed unless required because of Covid. I was allowed into the out patient dept to use the bathroom or buy takeaway coffee, which I was heartily thankful for ;)

    He seems fine at the moment thank goodness :) two lots of pills and has to go see his own doctor next week and will have to go back to the Hospital to see the doctor there when they send for him.

    Trying to keep my anxiety under control :sorry: and get back to posting a bit more regularly

    @Muddy Cyclist - hugs for the toothache and I hope the antibiotics kick in soon :sorry:

    @jjraak - some breakfast that! looks lovely :)

    @lindisfel - nice part of the country, my BIL's dad lives at Millom ;)

    @dunelm - lovely grove of trees, very well styled :)

    @Alien Aspie - we have our regular robin back again, cheeky but fun and very curious about everything you do :)

    @gennepher - very vibrant art, she looks quite stern but the cat looks gleeful ;)

    Art bit -
    haven't managed to paint every day but I hope to get back to daily art.
    this was from a photo found on Pinterest as usual.

    Hugs @geefull for your awful week.
    Hugs for you both.

    Thank goodness they let you use the bathroom. And you got coffee.

    Thank you for the art compliment.

    Your landscape of hills is very beautiful, with that lovely delicate detail on grass and hills.

    You both take care.

    A few days of no art, not good. Abscess popped this afternoon and pain and swelling less, feeling much better and so a couple of watercolour sketches A5 for my next sunset painting, not yet sure which way this painting will go.

    Hopefully geeful, given the right medication, mr gee will make a full recovery, and the right course of drugs will keep the problem in check.
    May you find the peace you need and stop worrying, but that is easily said.
    God bless
    Derek

    5.0 this morning. A really good day at work yesterday. Was home before 10pm - am definitely getting quicker at doing all the sanitising once the class has left.

    Mr K never has a drink until I get home - just in case i have a problem and he has to drive out to sort it. So as soon as I got home he had a whisky.

    An hour later I suddenly remembered that I had forgotten to close the windows at the hall and we had to make a 50 mile round trip to close them. He was definitely quite grumpy as he was really tired after a busy day but wouldn't let me go on my own. He is a really good driver but not a very good passenger.

    All is fine this morning and he is back to his normal self.

    Good Morning and another high with a 7 today. Too many different mixes of tablets and infections so I'm not going to keep worrying about it.

    Pleanty to do today, however I'm sure unplanned events will end up changing this, Ain't life exciting :)

    Take what you can and give what you can to your day. Keep safe.

    Busy Morening Ladies and Gentlemen here, again no time.

    A 7.2 this morning, which is good because I'm going to be active and mentally stressed at plinky plonky this morning.

    Quick mention about today, which is bin day, dancing around the September pole is allowed if that's your thing.

    Anybody heard anything about Christmas being moved to December 1st? I shall be looking for decorations shortly and ordering my dreaded sprouts.
    Have a great bin day fellow posters and painters, if allowed.

    Good morning all. Quite dark this morning even as late as 6.00 am - really not my happy place. Hugs for @geefull and Mr G. Hopefully the art will keep your anxiety levels down and the Meds and Medics will provide the reassurance you both need. @Muddy Cyclist glad the abscess is on the mend and gave a winner for balanced outlook. @karen8967 hug for hypo but winner for understated way you deal with things. @Krystyna23040 hug for the extra journey for you and Mr K. Management of T2 remains a wholly N=1 process so Stabbo vacillated between 5.2 and 5.4 this morning. Absolutely certain neither of them is low enough but probably not dangerous. Rolled through all the protocols yesterday: 14 hrs 250+ steps; 10k+ total,; <5 hrs eating window; keto levels carb; holy moley on skinny bread toast; salmon and avo salad. Shows up on scales but this is about T2 management. Moana day 1 with No 4 granddaughter - one of us is pretty in pink. Take care crew- You're welcome:angelic:
