    Thank you for kind words re Moet and art, yes a study and trial piece of abstract, learnt a lot.

    Nice to see Spring on the way, we have some miniature iris all over the garden they are so lovely to see.

    That's a well painted skating pond from yourself, where's the sheep? Again lots of depth and the fence line carrying the eye through the painting. My favourite part though is the distant mountains, so well painted.

    Good morning everyone from another mithery moany start here in the dark and dangerous north - hopefully brightening later.
    The wonder wheel of a fine chicken salad dinner came in at 4.8 this am

    Son has asked me to make him a family tree to go on the wall of his gym (he build one next to their house during lockdown) - so, Ogham or Chinese calligraphy? - Ogham will be easiest so might go that way - hope they don’t want full names - Thai does not easily translate into Gaelic and Chinese calligraphy is bad enough for names. Good grief - I may need to take up the art of “thinking”. Other son want’s a fish - dear me. Youngest granddaughter again today - the bubbled child. Mrs Miggins hunter gathered a celeriac root yesterday so perhaps a Yotam Ottolenghi style roasted celeriac with some sweet chilli dressing for dinner - I can roast it in my Ninja which is proving very useful and so far the oven is redundant with there being only two to cook for. Has everyone booked their hairdressing session?

    Bird art today - hope that everyone has Terrific Tuesday, bin day tomorrow but right now, koffy.

    Another magical and imaginative piece of art from you, I can feel that sun white sun that is so difficult to capture. Like Popeye a very attentive cat.

    You do manage to get some fine movement in your birds even though they are sitting on branches or standing in lakes. Nice feather lines and brilliant blossoms.

    Family tree, could be a long roll of wallpaper job or a small A4 depends on how many ancestors you found. Great idea of you sons though.

    Good Morning a 6 for me today. That was unexpected after being very good with Salmon poached in lemon juice and a few low carb stir fry Veg for a meal last night, just goes to show how fickle our internal workings can be just when you think you are doing OK, I suppose it keeps me on my toes.

    VW Golf into garage today, lots of clunking, pinging and creaking when turning corners, suspect broken coil but as it's a sports model it's too low for me to get underneath to investigate even though I'm now a skinny fellow. :)

    So work in garden today as Mrs MCs got plans, I have no idea what.

    Keep safe enjoy the wonders of the harbingers Spring.

    Morning everyone from a spring like Bath.

    My overnight FBG was 6.2 - dinner was poached trout, a whole pot pourri of Mediterranean veg and grilled asparagus. Followed by berries, yoghurt and peanut butter mixed in...

    Blood pressure monitor arrived via Amazon as per the wish of my GP...

    Car dealer phoned - some unnamed employee has reversed into the Stinger and taken a gouge out the front as it awaited its delivery inspection for next week.

    The choice - get it fixed or they've offered me a new one in electric blue delivered at the end of next month with a car temporarily till then on their dime which I thought was very decent.

    What would you guys do?

    AHH, the joys.

    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen. That includes posters, painters and gamers, but not.......

    A 6.2 this morning, nothing to be ashamed of, or proud of.

    Who knows where today will take us, a truly magical mystery tour, best let it be and it can become another day.

    Stay well, stay safe and whatever.

    I agree that he should at least talk to a doctor as this is going on and on. He sounds just as stubborn as Mr K - which makes it almost impossible to get him to do the sensible thing. Good luck.

    6.8 this morning. Was struggling with low 4s and some 3s yesterday afternoon and evening. Was 3.8 at bedtime. During the night felt like I had dropped lower and didn't feel that good. This morning DP kicked in to give me a 6.8. 2 hours after breakfast was 6.0.

    Sometimes this T2D is really hard to figure out. At least the headache I woke up with is improving.

    @slimlizzy if you're connected on NHS e-consult, you could persuade him to digitally hook up to your practice. If you're French residents, have you temporarily registered with a surgery here?

    Also NHS 111 - gets a bad rap from some, but my experience has always been good.

    It's worth a shot and may help peace of mind for you both.

    Sending my best!

    T2D I've found with me anyway is an unpredictable beast and can affect many health parameters... it's like being a constant anatomy and physiology alchemist to tune it!

    I hope you're feeling better. Arthur sends a big woof and tail wag too.

    Lovely sunny morning but a vicious cold wind. Ideal for drying washing. Except when the wind blows the temporary line down. The van is swaying in the wind, reminding me of living on the narrow boat.
    Thank you for all the kind, thoughtful and supportive comments. MrSlim appears much improved this morning. Apparently he " expects his body to heal itself" so no point in phoning doctor....
