    Much more prosaic. Just location, location, location. By now you should all realise I'm a very shallow chap. I crave comfort, the feeling of belonging to something and somewhere. Neither Elsie nor my current GPS coordinates come close to providing that but they are my duty just now. Afternoon tea in Granchester would give me what I desire. I'm content to be judged as shallow.

    Good morning all. fbs was 8.9 at 8.15am. Sigmoidoscopy went well. No indication of cancer found. :happy: Another appointment on 30th Nov. to discuss what happens next as symptoms have persisted. Lovely bright and sunny start today so may wrap up warm and make the most of it. Enjoy yourselves folks.:)

    Delighted for you. I pray they will identify and remedy the cause of your discomfort in very short order. I insist you take the very best care of yourself (but I am a bear of very little brain.)

    The pins and needles mentioned a few days ago did eventually subside. However in my investigation via Google I discovered they can be caused by over indulgence in alcohol. So two day abstinence. Then two glasses of wine with dinner, seems to be ok, so not that. Phew! All the same am going to be a more moderate drinker from now on.
    MrSlim did cooperate when asked to refrain from opening a bottle of Crêmant, because I had already had my two glasses of wine.

    That must be a great relief, even while symptoms persist. Hope they track down the cause and find a suitable treatment quickly.

    Classic symptom of the Boosterism variant: Optimism is free but the price of everything else is rising. Relax I've been to Peppa Pig World. I'll see you right.:angelic:
    We've fixed that, with this simple trick, on this side of the channel.:angelic:

    This may or may not be of interest but I'll pass on the link anyhow. I will try 1 of each provided they can be frozen. Goes against my swaps don't work policy but I'm way past principles I need comfort food. Any mathematical superbrain able to calculate the amounts for the pastry? Hot water pastry recipe which we may adapt since we have most of the LCF co ingredients. Have a puff pastry recipe on the house - Black Friday deal:angelic:

    Fbg 6.7

    Creative today...
    Using Wilko pen, then spraying with water.

    A little bit fed up this morning. I was going to go to another shop, for something I needed, after I picked up my prescription, but just now discovered it has relocated. So now, instead of having 3 shops I often use next to each other, one is now in a completely different place, with no other shops nearby. Which then becomes too much for me, because instead of just getting out of the car once, and setting up my scooter just once, it now all needs doing twice which I simply don't have the energy or stamina to do.

    I looked online for the thing I wanted, but it is double the price, which is just not happening.


    EDIT
    Well, I won't be getting my prescription this morning either, the weather has suddenly turned badly. My trees are all beating each other savagely, the bird feeders are swaying madly, and the rain is pouring, and hailstones just started....

    I am staying under my electric blanket today...

    Big hugs all round for the march of the shops - so frustrating. Another splendid water tree from you today.

    Glad it wasn’t the wine but hope that the cause can be identified.
