    Must rouse myself to get the workout and knee-icing done before another long day of double-match-watching!
    Between BBC Breakfast and my local NextDoor app... you would think we were at the end of the world.

    Ahhh but it is GLORIOUS BIN DAY and I am just learning a few choice words from the shouty man under my window...

    Morning all! (Those were not the words he was using, by the way.....)

    Fbg 6.7

    Some Christmas cards arrived yesterday.
    The first one I opened had one line in it. Not Merry Christmas. Nor Christmas greetings.
    BUT in capital letters...
    "WE'VE HAD COVID!"

    I dropped it immediately. Those words are still seared inside my forehead. Sanitised my hands. Got the tongs, and dropped the whole thing in the waste bin.

    Went and washed my hands (I do anyway when I receive Mail). But this was like an infected message....

    So, I thought an Angel was needed today...
    In Procreate...

    Yes, my local NextDoor app has messages of doom and destruction, and the stupidity of people...very good source material for many novels...

    It is Krystyna unfortunately this morning I can't find it...no doubt when I've hobbled about a little & cleared the debris it will make it's whereabouts known.

    I've done that before so as a result I am more sparing with it...I purposefully did not buy the spray just the cream & the roll on

    Good Morning and 6.2 for me today. Why it's gone back out of the 5s I have no idea looking at yesterday's carb intake.

    Muddy Cycle ride which will clear my mind and chase away some aches and pains, will probably be the last before Christmas. Then no idea what the rest of the day will bring other than doing the finishing touches to my illustrated story and de-dusting the house.

    Keep safe.

    Morning all. Fbg of 4.5 twice 40 mins apart on Swipey so accurate or not it is consistent. Hug for the cyst issue and Judith's back? @JohnEGreen and in general for information overload consciously sought or otherwise which a few are finding vexatious. Very fine line between fingers in ears and caution fatigue. Wonderful bauble @geefull and equally wonderful fbg @RFSMarch. Enjoy your ride @Muddy Cyclist.

    Apparently we are all heading for Tier 4 which is fair enough under the circumstances. We hope it holds the rise in infections across the country.

    I also hoped to just get some meds after speaking to the doctor yesterday am about a problem with nerve pain from a hamstring injury, but she insisted on me coming into the surgery today pm to get checked out...When you have had a number of health issues they want to be sure nothing else is going on, she asked a number of probing questions that indicated what she was thinking... but I think I am in perfect condition!:)

    We British are breaking records...we now have the biggest lorry park on planet Earth, which makes one wonder if in some other Universe in a Multiverse of infinite possibilities there can be equally incompetent politicians having a number of policies that could have resulted in such a concatenation of c**kups?
    Perhaps its as likely as the turkey jumping out the oven, saying Happy Christmas and laying an egg.

    hahahah right? I don't know what yours is like but mine is outraged motorists about cyclists or vice versa, and endless questions about when various supermarkets are open. You would think they could just ... you know... google that!

    Why would anyone do that in a card, odd world.

    Still it inspired a wonderful pre raphaelite angel from you, 'Let those that see Angels where others see spaces paint them' John Ruskin.

    FBG was 4.8 this morning after yet another rough nights sleep. Having my hormone injection today so the pain and dislocations should improve soon as they usually get worse in the run-up to an injection due to low levels.

    Going to be making a no-bake keto cheesecake tomorrow from DD recipe to take to my mum's for pudding for Christmas day, just waiting for the almond flour and erythritol to arrive. I hope it works out as we all love cheesecake :) Still need to wrap the boyfriends Christmas presents, we set a £30 limit for each other this year as we're both skint which is great as it took the pressure off and we know that one won't get the other something way more expensive than the other can afford. Looking forward to spending time with my mum, we're both in Tier 3 but we're in her bubble. I won't be able to see my dad as he is Tier 4 in Kent and most of my family live in Swale which until recently was top in the country for infection rates :inpain: Thankfully I got to see him in September before things got bad there.

    In a good mood today despite the lack of sleep :D

    I think the roll on is such a good idea. There is no way you can overdo it.

    Yes - I totally agree that it is much more scary as so many more people will become infected.

    Fbg 4.9 this morning at about 8:30 AM.

    Adrian shared this link the other day so I thought I would share it here if no one minds.
