    I haven’t posted my levels for a few days, trying not to ‘see’ them. But here they are:
    Thurs. 6. Fri. 6.9. Sat 7.2. Sun 6.9 (Sat bedtime was 6.4!)
    Today 7.4
    Oh dear.

    A friend put a fbk link that had lots of clever tips. Not world shattering but useful and time saving. Two that I tried today worked. 1) peel ginger with a teaspoon- less waste and it goes around all the funny bits. 2) to strip herb leaves off the stem, push the stem through a hole in a colander from the inside. All the leaves stay in the colander.

    My goodness 2 at once! It’s the same as people who haven’t had a baby saying how great it would be to have twins! Twice the joy maybe but also twice the work and stress, I’m very impressed.
    He’s getting pretty good at the toilet training, as you said, it’s easier because the weather has been nice the last few days here. It’d be different in the pouring rain walking round the garden for 20 mins waiting for a ‘performance’
    At the moment I am gasping for air as I type - how can such an evil smell emanate from such a small body?

    I remember standing under an umbrella with our dog when she was a puppy- it rained a lot in Brussels. Something to make your life easier. When he performs say a trigger word. We used ‘hurry up.’ So every time he wees, say ‘hurry up.’ They learn quickly. It will be the best thing you ever taught him when you’re standing in the rain at a motorway services and your dog is distracted by all the messages left by other dogs and you really wish he would- hurry up.

    I agree. Never did quite understand where that idea came from.

    That’s a brilliant tip. I remember now seeing a programme about a dog show, maybeCrufts, I can’t remember. They had a dedicated dog toilet area and this owner was saying ‘busy busy’ which was presumably the same thing, just a trigger. We will start this immediately, thank you.

    Good morning folks, 6.3 on the dice, night out at GD's end of year fashion show where the students show off there clothing designs, there's some weird and wacky minds at work out there people. There was a section called "King of Queens", I had to avert my gaze :wideyed:. Celebratory Chinese meal afterwards as the wife was told she got the her old job back, no starting date but they said it would be quick, well chuffed.

    6.7 for me this morning after a bit of a restless night of sleep and a perhaps unwise choice of a curry for dinner last night ( only had about a spoonful of rice and a third of a papadum)

    @trick60 Congratulations to Mrs T on the new job.
    @Viv19 @DJC3 I thought mine to perform using "hurry up". It is very useful when you are in a rush.
    A new pot of strips today I was hoping that they would offer up something better than the highish 5's I have been getting but no still spat out a 5.7 this morning. Next new pot I buy I will have to specifically request a pot of under 5's.
    Take care

    Apparently it’s a good idea to make sure you’ve washed your hands before testing. Any residue on your hands can affect the reading.

    I need to walk. Not been doing that enough here. My reading last night was 6.4 but this morning, after a restless night (this mattress!!), is 6.8. I didn’t take an ibuprofen last night, might try that tonight if my back shouts at me, and see how the reading goes.
