    @gennepher yes, your painting is very mystical. I do like it.

    We now have blackbirds nesting in our garden. We have been watching them bringing in the nesting material this morning.

    P.E. is definitely working for me.

    I checked my online records this morning and all the other tests were in normal range. So I am completely normal - or maybe Normal for Norfolk.

    I was really pleased to see that although I am now coded as Diabetes Resolved my excellent DN has added that I am to be tested annually because I am at high risk of developing diabetes.

    Interesting upward journey of your fbg on P:E but glorious end point on HbA1c and being resolved. However, will us mere mortals see the same results?. Only asking for a friend you understand. Personally, I'm totally chillaxed;) My resting pulse and sleep seem to enjoy more protein. I don't have much muscle these days - comparatively large neck still - so Lord knows if they are benefiting. Perhaps Mr K should have a quiet word about talking to your body parts - that tends to argue against the normal diagnosis in all parts of the known world;). Gel I knew (called Felicity, obs) did swear she said "I must, I must improve my bust" every day. Outstanding results;)

    It is all too, too much. I just finished (low and in the corner) trying to talk Harry Kane (such a wonderful young man) into staying with Spurs when this state of national emergency hove into view:bigtears: Can't be true we are Global Britain (minus Scotland obs). Flammin meedja, wokery gawn mad, elf-n-safeteee - rejoice I tell ya. Roll out the barrel. (Hmm, 2 Fedos atop a giant Mr Whippy cone with a triple Jägerbomb side sounds like a plan if I ever leave the reservation):angelic:

    A caution, in my part of The Fens, was a simple person - usage = He/she is a proper caution. Talking of caution as in eat in pubs/but only eat outside and are vaccinated twice this seems to nail matters. Yes, I'm Uni educated, wokish and "clustered" amongst similar so shoot me already but I can spot a snake oil salesman..

    They've been repurposed to the cabinet and rebadged. Just call them minister and you'll be fine.;)

    good afternoon all :)

    4.5 today

    it's chucking it down with rain here so we celebrated the day by taking a load of stuff to the recycling depot :hilarious:

    Picked up mum's shopping list ready for tomorrow and made a cinnamon and orange LC sponge this afternoon.
    I don't think I shall give up wearing my mask for shopping anytime very soon, we get a lot of tourists from the Glasgow and Edinburgh areas and the Glasgow area seems to have a cluster of the new 'India' variant :sorry: discretion is the better part of valour I think ;)

    Hope your day is treating you well :)

    @lindisfel - idiots aka-'barmpots' where I grew up ;)

    @dunelm - the pale yellow rice paper makes a pleasing subtle background for your landscape, amazing how much scale you have managed to get in so small an area :)

    Your landscape today is fantastic, you have a real way with rocky crags, so much depth and balance, they always look so weighty and the colours add an effective highlight :joyful:

    Congrats to your grandaughters they must be well pleased :)

    @gennepher - two completely different and contrasting pictures, the first is all light and those blossoms look like they would sway if you breathed on them :joyful: the second monocromatic one has so much mystery, it's quite enigmatic, I like them both very much.

    @Krystyna23040 - very well done for your latest blood test results, you must be justifiably pleased :) It looks as if the PE diet is suiting you well.

    @Muddy Cyclist - so good to spend time outdoors now the weather is improving isn't it? and seeing nature come back to life prompts the imagination :)

    art bit -
    this is done on a paper called 'Britannia' by Hahnemuhle ( 300gsm lignin/acid free cellulose I believe)
    I got some to try because it uses a different type of size to my regular paper (starch instead of gelatine). It is 'matte' texture which is supposed to be the equivalent of cold pressed but it seems a bit smoother than most.
    The paper seems to handle water/washes in a slightly odd way, not as I'm used to, though I do like it. I shall continue to experiment ;)

    Not sure I understand a single word of the art lesson, sorry miss, but I love the picture. Pale blue, wonder why I like that colour so much?;)

    We rounded a good number of them up and posted them to London but I fear that some senior idiot may have plans to move the ones in the counting house up towards Darlington - that should get the housing market moving in an unaffordable upward direction. “Oh yes, we bought the whole terrace and knocked it through. Got the idea from an old Beatles film called ‘Help!’.”

    Do keep hold of the rain, thank you. How much of it can you take to the recycling centre each time?
    Thank you for your kind comments. I quite enjoy working on a small scale. Britannia by Hahnemuhle - sounds like we need tickets. I like the way you have cut that pale yellow horizon through the piece and continued the light through those slits in the cloud and then pushed the theme down onto the land and into the water. Smashing.

    I'm just assuming that is all friendly. I do hope it is not some kind of argot, like cockerney rhyming slang, for class A?;)
