    Happy anniversary @Krystyna23040 and Mr K. 2 days running in places I find functional and great fbg - tweaks and maybe protein suit you. @DJC3 diabetic nurse was a tad discombobulated by my lack of love for my A1c but billed and cooed at my soft feet - what is that all about? @dunelm presumably persons become average once they reach the age of majority since teachers were frequently told there is no such thing as the average child. Hope that neck is now unwound.

    Feeling very chuffed with myself having caught up on 175 messages.

    As this is a fbs thread I think it might be a good idea to add some stats to my post so here goes, Monday to Friday
    5.9
    6.0
    6.2
    6.2
    6.1

    I'm missing the 5s. Last of my birthday celebrations last night. My Bessie told me to be ready for 5pm when she would be picking me up for my birthday surprise. Only told me what to wear and that I would need my makeup for touching up. She had secretly got my hubby to drop off my swimwear at hers. Got in the car. Bottle of prosecco and champagne glass was there to greet me! Spa journey was part of my surprise. Loved it. The evening spa journey was by candlelight. Beautiful. Very relaxing. Then I was chauffeured to a local cheese and wine bar. Crackers were involved. And half a small slice of bread. But low carb heaven in there. Then on to the casino just around the corner for a coffee. I spent £20 on the tables. Won here and lost there. Came out with £20. Win win I would say.

    Today's agenda is having my beautiful granddaughter. Hubby still on jury service and gutted he missed his special day with her yesterday. The sun is shining so park day I think.

    Went to my Tesco Diabetic meeting on Wednesday. One lady gave us more brilliant feedback. She has lost another 2.2kg. Her hba1c is almost normal. Her DN said that if she carries on like this she will be off meds by October. She has had a new hair style. She looks a million dollars. She feels a million dollars.

    Happy Friday to all. Enjoy the weekend. Hope the sun shines for all.

    Edit: ps I steered well clear of the sugar bombs on that platter!

    I hate things posting before I have added my bit...okay its me pressing the wrong button ...probably...

    Thank you @PenguinMum I am glad they are going down too.

    @SaskiaKC I didn’t have anything to add to the KC litter tray thing because my cats have always gone outside in my garden. I have bowls of bark chippings they have been able to use outside. That is to encourage them to do their business on my property. They have loved the bark chippings.

    I did find when I moved here, I couldn’t let my cats out immediately because I needed them to know this was their new house. So this did mean cat trays. I did find they preferred the open cats trays, and not the enclosed ones with a roof. One cat even studied me on the toilet and I found her later with her paws perched on the toilet seat, and doing a number 2. Absolutely perfectly...

    But she didn’t flush the toilet after...although she was good with door handles...

    I have never seen any other of my other cats do that. It would be good if they did. No litter trays to clean...

    So I am not much help for KC...

    Weird weather here. Blue skies and got sun, then suddenly dark clouds and then freezing cold...

    It is so funny - I spent 2 hours last night trying to decide what clothes to wear while we are away. This meant trying everything on in different combinations (trying everything on really did mean trying everything on from two wardrobes).
    Today I have printed off my list of all the other things I need to take and it will probably take another hour to tick off everything on the list and pack.

    Husband started packing 10 minutes ago - no list - and has packed everything he needs into the case and is ready to go.

    I just hope he hasn't done the typical guy thing and forgotten something essential ... like his razor ... [​IMG]

    FBG here this morning was 7.1. And 7.2 on the second try.

    Whatever.

    Have you seen the movie “Meet the Foc*ers” with the cat called Jinxie who uses the toilet and flushes it afterwards? Your cat could have been an actor with those skills..I always think my Bobs could have been a model bcause she is beautiful, knows it and walks like she is in heels, very minxy!

    @gennepher I have read about cats who used human toilets but you are the first person I have ever actually known who knew such a cat. My older kitty used to drink out of the toilet. I have heard of dogs doing that but she was the first cat I knew who actually did it. A previous cat, Duesenberg, tried to on his first night with me ... he fell in ... was so embarrassed he slunk off and hid under the bed from the girlcats who had been watching.

    Ha that reminds me of our boy Ginger ...when the boys were little I used to bath them together which was all about the play and he just wanted to be part of the fun by walking along the edge of the bath and of course once he slipped and in he went. I couldnt believe how quickly he got out cheered on by the boys. He allowed me to wrap him in a towel and then sulked for hours. He preferred to drink from the tap a habit I didnt start with my current two.

    :D The Ascot cameraman was near the starting gate doing a closeup of one runner when another horse moved up even closer, between that horse and the cameraman. The commentator said, "And this is Rumble Inthejungle just moving up" -- and just then Rumble Inthejungle glanced straight into the camera with a look that said he was just itchin' for a rumble inthejungle. :D

    ... sadly he got lost back in the jungle today ...

    good evening all :)

    was 4.6 this morning

    got up a bit late and hurried out to cover the charity shop today so I'm late posting :sorry:

    hoping it will stay dry enough this evening to allow me to rake up the strimming I did on Wednesday, it rained yesterday so it will hopefully have dried out again by now, it's pretty breezy here and I was hoping perhaps it would have dried up and blown away :hilarious:

    Home now and drinking coffee :)

    Hope your day is treating you kindly :)

    There was a segment on breakfast tv today to do with ‘bring your dog to work Day’ with a young teacher who was profoundly deaf who has a trained dog with him in the classroom who alerts him with nudges if a pupil has asked a question while he is writing on the white board or puts a hand up. Also alerts him to other things like the school bell or the fire alarm. The pupils love him and are allowed to greet him when they come in but know to settle down quickly. How our animals and pets help us in so many ways and are good for mental well being. My SIL works in a nursing home and the highlight of the day is when two golden retrievers visit for 2 hours each afternoon.

    It did me too -- and it was 40-odd years ago! Duesenberg had lived all his life up 'til then in a university fraternity house (all-guys boarding house sort of thing), apparently living on pizza and burgers and getting his only drinking water from toilets. It took 4 guys to hold him down in the back seat of a Volkswagen Beetle when they brought him to me -- but he turned out to be a surprisingly gentle cat, for all that, and fell in love with my tortoiseshell, Magic.

    He looked a lot like your Popeye, which was how he got his name.

    The office staff here have 'bring your dog to work day.' I think it is a wonderful idea. We also have one Seeing-Eye dog who lives here.
