    Glad you had a good day. Birthday was good thanks but no alcohol will be involved - haven't drunk any since Boxing Day. Not against it in principle and have plenty in the house but I can't see what place it has in my life just now.

    Many happy returns Ian, it seems the older we get the more blessings we have to count, hope the viewings went positively for you, and have a lovely evening.

    Thanks trick. I think we perhaps see things more clearly as much as having more blessings. Viewings went well.

    Glad you had a good birthday. You have done really well not drinking alcohol since boxing day.

    Thank you. Hug.

    How do removal firms there charge? The ones here are required by the Department of Transportation to charge by the hour, or by the mile, instead of by the size of the load, and there is a 2-hour minimum. Two years ago I needed only a smallish truck and two moving men to move from a small 1BR apartment to a studio. That didn't affect the estimates I was quoted, which was a very unpleasant surprise.

    That sounds very controlled. Were there not any smaller, less structured companies that offered better rates? Or a ‘man and his van’ (and mate)?

    Morning all and happy Corpus Christi day. Thanks for all the birthday wishes yesterday. No reading today as the joints issue probably related to some virus so I will learn nothing useful about impact of food and next bloods not until mid December. Unsurprisingly, low cals and carbs yesterday meant 3.30 wake up but it is light early and warmer than winter so all is well. Have a great day. @Krystyna23040 not having alcohol is easy but begs a big question. When we move there will be well over 250 bottles of wine and spirits to be moved but if I don't find a place for them in my woe what exactly is the point? Boys bought me a very nice bottle of Speyside single malt with a personalised message as a combined Father's day and birthday present no inclination to try it yet. Feel a bit guilty as they clearly knew what my preference was.

    Hope you’re feeling better soon Ianpspurs.
    I’m also ‘awake’ with the birds this morning- and I really would like more sleep!
    Fasting bg is a miserable 7.2 this morning.

    Your post made me think of my mother. During the war she and her best friend worked on a base in Corpus Christi, Texas. I think I still have some of the pics from a visit they made to Mexico during that time. :)

    As I said, the rates are based on the law, not on the size of the load (and therefore the truck). :)

    @SaskiaKC I hope the memories provoked are happy ones. I would find it quite upsetting to think I had disturbed you in any way. @Krystyna23040 hug for early waking and high fbg. I will be fine with plenty of tea and anti inflamatories. @karen8967 hope the low wasn't too bad and the rest is good - take care.

    Wow.
    So it is going well. That is brilliant. I am glad.
    When we first get information we don't always take it in, or it is not explained properly the procedure and our brain goes into panic working out mode.
    Mine does!!!
    Relax now!!!

    I watched it True Blue & wished I hadn't...shockingly poor candidates & debating...more concerned with personal ambition & saving their party rather than the UK.

    Good morning folks, a 6.6 on the dice, unsettled sleep last night, seems to be a thing at the moment, I think mine was coffee related.
