    Based on my use of it today and son’s feedback it is just a heated clothes airer so if you put stuff on a regular airer near a radiator it works better. I have had a load of tshirts and polo shirts on it today for 6 hours and they are ceetainly not dry just drier! I am thinking of replacing my compact tumble drier for the garage where it foesnt matter about venting.

    Oh that’s disappointing, I was hoping they’d be better - they’re quite expensive aren’t they? Our problem will be work uniforms for Mr C and girls and all the cheap Primark T shirts - none of which can be tumble dried. The cottage is a bit damp so I don’t really want to air more clothes in the house.
    Thanks for the feedback.

    I think your post is very funny. But seriously - it is such a shame that it, in many ways, is not normal for Norfolk.

    Don't think Norfolk is worse than elsewhere in that respect.

    5.7 this morning. Lots of protein last night. Chicken kebab night. 2 spoons of the most amazing chilli sauce, cabbage and a little onion. No bread. Red wine (2 medium glasses) and a few mixed nuts. Have the same most Saturdays. Love Saturdays. Blood sugars well within 2 points after 2 hours. Win win. And reasonable FBS.

    Tomorrows might not be so good. Fathers day. Hubby has 2 children. Same 2 as me Haha. Both bestowed lovely pressies and cards on him. Emotions flowed. Out for dinner as the icing on the cake. He had 3 courses. Everyone else just 2. His dessert was a combination of 4 mini desserts. It was to share with daughter and 2 year old granddaughter (who turned up her nose!!!). I grabbed her spoon and had a small spoon of the cheesecake. My dessert was a special coffee, no sugar. We have had a lovely day, even though we did both work this morning.

    Home now. To finish his day he watched the UNICEF footy match and is currently laughing his head off watching the new Top Gear. Seems suitably impressed. I'm his waitress service for the evening and coffee has just been served. He is smiling like a Cheshire cat. One happy bunny. Which is just how it should be for the man who is the best dad in the world.

    You just taught me something. Another difference in this common language which "divides" the UK and the US. :)

    So, white goods in the UK are dryers, washers, etc.?

    Here a "white sale" means towels and sheets and other bedding.

    I am in the crawled-out-of-the-wreckage-old-age group and standing firm looking round from the higher ground we've gained!

    When I'm not sleeping through TV programs ... :D

    5.7 this morning and I need the rains to hold off until 3pm so I can get the lawns cut. May have to do a 'reverse rain dance' as the odds are not in my favour ;)

    113 mg/dl (6,3 mmol/l) for me this morning.
    Morning fasting counts continue to be the hardest to manage. My post prantial counts are comparatively much better. Screenshot_20190617-083808_DiabetesM.jpg

    Drat, that’s disappointing so perhaps shelling out for one of those may not be such a good idea. Thank you for letting us know.

    Brilliant - take care in that there Bournemouth place with all those tempting treats on display - they might even be wafting yorkies under your nose.

    Yes, in the UK “white goods” refers to large electrical goods used domestically such as refrigerators and washing machines, typically white in colour. I have a sister, born in the USA, who lives in Texas - we constantly have to explain meanings to each other. Her husband and their two girls think that this is extremely funny.
