    I read this and my first reading told my little brain that you reduced your HBa1c by 1/3 and it’s good as you were 89, 6 months ago. My little brain thought wow I’ve never thought Gennepher was 89. She does loads for someone her age....

    While browsing through a booklet in my room about hounds in Cornwall I came across an advert for the ultimate dog drying coat, practical and stylish solutions for wet dogs. If you want I can send a PM with the details. The blacklab in the pic looks very snug in his orange coat!

    I’ve just caught up with posts so from international bin day to frisky young things frolicking in gardens green, to 89 year olds with really full lives, to cats with their pawsies crossed to Cornwall adventures to monsoon season in Britain. Fortuitously not a mention about all things brexit..

    So my morning lightened by your posts to my randometer. A 4.7 resplendent on the screen. Nice to be out of the 3’s

    Today I’m venturing towards catching up with laundry as my garage laundry has been out of action for a week ... there are only 2 of us thankfully.

    I wish you all a very merry Friday. Kim xx

    Also just played catch up on so many posts.

    Fantastic stuff, @gennepher
    Liking the meet up and journeys of our two tin miners, @PenguinMum @DJC3

    and @Bubbsie ..."Pen & ink"...:hilarious::hilarious::hilarious:
    such evocative prose.

    Hope the tooth is less painful, and your back to your old self asap, @ianpspurs
    and sorry about your tree @HarrisonK

    hope all else are well and working towards whatever goals they have set..:)

    for me the FBG was 7 this am.
    highest it's been for a long while.
    worked late, late night beer (3 tiny, really tiny bottles) and some cheese dish with jalapenos.
    looked good at bedtime..6.5..so mystery as to why this mornings was so high.

    Liking the pointer about vit c..must look into that a tad more.
    happily sitting with some b12, vit d each day..looks like another tablet to take might be in order
    to see what effect it has on myself..

    Live long & prosper, as spock used to say.:D

    Cool, thank you for the idea! I could certainly try that. It would certainly be a lighter-weight fabric than the cover I bought. If I do move I am not going to take my current huge heavy queen-size mattress and foundation that was given to me when I moved here nearly 7 years ago. I will order a smaller mattress and lay it on the floor. I can also get rid of the huge queen-size comforter and sheets that are a hassle to wash and dry -- may keep the comforter and trim and hem it ... then make a cover for it out of these huge sheets ... hmmm ... you are giving me some good ideas. :)

    5.3 Wednesday
    6.2 Thursday (late night supper including chocolate)
    5.2 today

    Been a busy week.

    So I'm.waiting for some rendering to be done on my house. I look at the weather forecast incessantly. Throughout the day, thinking that the next time I check at least one of the days following will give me a glimmer of hope (and a ray of sunshine). Not to be. Not last week. Not this week and by the looks of it not next! I know the brits are a bit obsessed about the weather but I seem to have taken it to another level!!! Even my 2 year old granddaughter keeps saying 'rain rain go away come back another day'. She has heard me, SHOUTING IT AT THE TOP OF MY VOICE!!!

    I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Hoping to catch up on.the thread soon. Missing so much!

    Mrs T is fine now still a little bruised under the eyes where her glasses frame dug in a bit, and she should hear about the job early next week. The new police front counter is situated at the fire station which probably accounts for her eagerness to land the job.

    Glad the mouth is ok.

    Hi @SaskiaKC I thought of you today when we left Cornwall and drove across Dartmoor National Park. The famous wild Dartmoor ponies were trotting around and of all colours, black, brown, black and brown and one albino. We saw one tiny foal with its mum. Of course there were lots and lots of sheep and lambs and a 360 degree view of wonder.

    What a lovely thing to say! Thank you. It’s definitely a team effort on here though, and in terms of supporting others, there are so many who offer so much, you are most certainly high ranking amongst them.

    We did have a good time @jjraak and I’d be very happy to meet up with any of the gang on here who find themselves in Cornwall.
    Talking of which I think it’s about time you had another holiday - your fbg levels were lower then I seem to remember, holidays obviously agree with you.
