    Whoops I nearly forgot my Fbg and painting with all this key toggling discussion....

    Fbg 6.7

    I was going to do this cherry blossom in iPastel app, but the colour dropper tool has been removed, or it is another casualty of the the latest Apple update on the iPad which has rendered several art apps totally unusable or defunct in certain features like saving your digital paintings.

    So I was working in iPastel, then moved it to Procreate, then back again...
    I spent too long on it. It was meant to be enjoyable. But ended up hard work to get what I wanted. I finished it, but then I didn't like it, and used one of my saved versions from an hour previously.

    But it wasn't wasted time. I learnt some valuable information on how to create a different effect between layers...

    Now back down the rabbit hole of symbols...

    i am not, and never have been, very good at taking time out just for me. It is really good advice though because it is so easy to overdo it. Our walks around the National Trust Parklands every Sunday really do 'recharge the batteries' and I can always feel the benefits from this recharging when I get home.

    Brace yourselves posters, painters and gamers, me and me's and Mrs J returned a day early.

    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen and key pressers enjoy your journey. I have been enjoying reading today's posts, pillars and paintings, well looking at the paintings.

    A sprightly 6.7 on that abusive meter this morning, me and me's know what was eaten last night and consider ourselves chastised.

    Well fellow posters, painters and gamers we returned to Tilehurst Towers yesterday to be informed that a neighbour has moved and not left a forwarding address, yipee, they will be missed. ;-)

    Me and me's can say that a week without access to WiFi has it's benefits especially access to Amazon, but with a couple of the rain storms the nearby stream began to look like the river.

    Now it is time to think about serious stuff like, tea, koffy and bacon sarnies.

    On a serious note. Restrictions have been lifted, but for me and me's this is the frightening period I shall be watching the infection rates closely and bark at the postman from a safe distance.

    Lovely cherry blossom - I like that way that you have hinted at the leaves and blossoms - smashing composition and that blue background really brings out the best in the other colours

    Glad you are home safe and physically sound @alf_Josiah - probably nowhere near as glad as the folk from whence you departed;)

    Good late Morning and 6 for me today. 5.4 yesterday.

    Missed posting Sunday as we had a very early start to watch Grandaughters taking part in Hunter Trials on their ponies. Turned into a real long day. Still our 10 year old came 1st in 3 classes and 8 year old 2cnd, 4th and 5th so all happy. How does lots of standing make one so tired? I was exhausted when we finally got home.

    Then real early start today to drive away the tired aches of yesterday to get in a three hour Muddy Cycle Ride before the promised rain descended. Did the Commonwealth Games Trails twice getting faster, probably too fast as I over cooked a few berms, scary moments. :)

    The Spring Growth on the Larch Trees inspired me to start my next watercolour.

    Will try a catch up on posts.

    Keep safe make the day special.

    Wow. You have the energy of a young man. He'll be furious when he notices and comes looking for it. Granddaughters must have been chuffed as little mint balls.

    Spectacular - bet the granddaughters are well chuffed but perhaps not as much as you. Have the best fun on that Commonwealth Games Trail - is there a veterans class - hope so.

    Quelle surprise. People can't stay home/shop and be in the pub/cinema/restaurant all at once - who knew? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-57141634 Thought we'd passed peak nonsense but apparently it is a real British success story.

    I did go ahead with my HbA1c on Friday as my DN said that I could retake it in 3 months if a week on antibiotics or Covid 19 jabs had messed up the numbers.

    Just got email from DN. HbA1c was 35 - so there was absolutely no need to worry about it. It also looks like it didn't matter about the high fbs as the rest of the time numbers are fine.

    Cholesterol down to 4.7 from 5.6. So another marker that is good. I think the 5.6 was the result of the vat loads of cream. Blood pressure reading was really good also.

    Since starting the P;E. Diet on 1st April I have had an increased feeling of wellness = as though my body really is working much better by prioritising protein - rather than vat loads of cream.

    I love the colours and the way the sunlight shimmers on the cherry blossom.
