    I just saw this. I loved our jump club's Cessna.

    I'm glad to know that Britain ferries cats to Ireland -- to keep them from being BBQ'd. Is the ferry called the Saint Patrick?

    Sunday morning with sun. 25 degrees with 82% humidity. I'm blaming the 6.5 FBG on that. I'd rather have 65% humidity outside but I wouldn't want 8.2 FBG inside.

    Fbg this morning was 5.6. Happy with that. Anything that starts 5 is good.
    We took Dennis to the beach for the first time this morning, before it got too busy. Holywell has a freshwater stream running through it so he could enjoy the sand and a. bit of paddling without the big scary waves frightening him. He was remarkably well behaved!
    @karen8967 glad to see your fbg was spot on this morning.
    @Krystyna23040 good fbg. I really like the Moser Roth chocolate too. And the fact that it comes individually wrapped in little bars is great for portion control ( I do sometimes struggle with the stop button)
    @PenguinMum I’m so glad your birthday weekend is turning out to be so lovely. What a great surprise having your son arrive unexpectedly and what a brilliant birthday present your HbA1c was. Fantastic result!
    @pavlosn you look super relaxed and happy. Hope you enjoyed the Pride jollities.
    @MisplacedIdentity congrats on your dancing prize - were you stone cold sober? It takes me at least 1/2 bottle of wine to make me get up.
    @Bubbsie are you enjoying Killing Eve? I thought it was brilliant, best thing on tv for ages.
    @Debandez hope your dryer gets fixed. I’m ashamed to say that even on a sunny day I’ll stick towels in the dryer so they come out soft and fluffy not rock hard.
    @ianpspurs I’m glad to note your gout is gradually getting better. Shame there’s no cricket for you today though.

    Skipping breakfast but still taking my diabetes meds, did not prove so wise. I was feeling lazy so slept in through the morning, while the wife went to the shops. She woke me up on her return around 1:00 pm to head for lunch.

    My glucose level 3.7 - definitely not comfortable that low. The hotel has a display of sweets/candy laid out in the reception for kids. I decided to help myself to some just in case.

    @Viv19 forgot to tell you the ‘Hurry Up’ is working!!!!! Dennis will pretty much go to order now. So helpful, thank you.
    @SaskiaKC that video clip was blocked for me but I think I’ve seen it, and agree there should be more general horseplay amongst adults.

    That’s brilliant. Clever boy.
    I wanted to post a pic of our sweet foster dog, but it kept coming up as locked. Oh well, never mind.

    @DJC3 - I sometimes struggle with the stop button also - so I also really love the fact that the \Moser Roth 85% is in 25g individually wrapped bars because I know that I will definitely stop at one bar. I'm taking some of them with me to London next week where I am on a course. They will be an ideal lunch with a cup of coffee and cream and will keep me going until my evening meal.

    good afternoon all :)

    was 4.8 this morning

    The sun has come out, I got a few plants out into the ground in the garden and just spent a happy hour at mum's mowing grass ;) I must admit I do like the smell of freshly cut grass.

    Hope your day is treating you kindly :)

    Yesterday afternoon I was going to post that I had been given a comfy chair. But after trying to get comfortable in it most of the evening and again this morning I was ready to give it back, or pass it on ...

    But I am not the only one who lives here and my roommate seems to find it very comfy indeed ...

    Winner for the hour spent happily grass cutting. (Worst part of being immobile is no grass cutting)

    I have been trying to work that out too... Wellness at the expense of well-being, or weighing the two ...
    A thought just came to me ... To let my body be my sage ...
