    Good morning everyone under a splendidly blue contrail sky here in the dark and dangerous north
    Meter readings just taken and submitted. We still have not been transferred back to our preferred supplier yet - oh how the wheels have slowed down. At this rate we will be back in 1977 in time for a previous Queen’s Jubilee and I will still have hard cash in my Post Office Savings Book account. There is a day out there waiting for someone to join in at take part but we are still stuck at home awaiting the next debacle in Mordor to be unearthed.
    This spray of ink told me that a boat and a small figure was needed so there we go. Have the very best day that you can have. I shall begin by making koffy.

    Thank you for sharing your art and I'm delighted that your brush with COVID appears to be towards the mild end of the spectrum. Bellamy in Around the World seems to have been a sharply observed portrait of an infamous English journo turned politico but I may be a little biased.:angelic:

    You are welcome. A vibrant ray of hope on Blue Monday. Talking of which, @karen8967 are you as happy as I was when Jose was given The Spanish Archer? Delia liked him anyhow.:angelic:

    Good Afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen and all who wonder at meaning of life, the universe and vegan bacon sarnies.

    A 4.9 this morning, consequently a slight hypo after some task driven exercise, sympathy is not require, just patience in the bucket load waiting for normality to return.

    Looking at the falling covid infection rates and knowing a huge amount of people who have recently been infected, something is not equating. Perhaps in a few days the likes of Prof Whitty and Vam Tam will explain, me an me’s await with garlic laden breath.

    Stay safe all.

    Good morning,

    6am fbg 5.8
    Looks like it might be raining all week. Hopefully it's cooler in the next few days.
    Happy Tuesday!
    @gennepher beautiful picture and I'm glad your fbg is down back in the 6s

    Hope all are well.

    Sadly disappointed in myself
    I now need carer to assist in morning .

    Lauren needed back at work
    I need little looking after, I said

    A lie



    Carers all very pleasant, despite never knowing quite who is attending me next day

    Determined to make this as short a gig for them as possible ...sorry carers, much love & gratitude, honest

    Limited in what they can do or offer me
    So I get a visual check, that I'm ok
    & A cup of teas & a small breakfast that I'm most grateful for

    Too proud to be washed ...I'll manage... is my response & mindset.

    Lh hand in plaster fingers to mid forearm ..do NOT get wet
    Rh shoulder blade broken, so upwards/side motions severely restricted
    Rh leg broke, pinned, reskinned
    Rh rear ribs repairing
    And various other locations of hurt.

    Seated bathing at sink best I can do at mo.

    Self washing rather hit & miss.
    Lauren helps where I let her

    Fraught all round with my indignation/ wounded pride & her frustration at my perceived petulance ...

    Too little experience of being a patient, patient
    Who knew I'd be such a tw**...(yes, yes, you boys, quiet at the back )

    Mobility now moved onto toileting.... alone....yippee.

    And made tea & toast today.
    Yes, yes food of the devil, but I need to eat to recover, so only 1 battle a day really matters.

    I skirt around the T2D where It appears, so only minor skirmishes outside of main meals

    Main foods I do better, Lauren knows over the last few years what I can eat , like to eat & should eat
    So shops & cooks accordingly

    But a damaged wrist from a few years back has become an issue and limits what she can do.
    Current nurse ratched duties haven't helped

    I'm not quite DiCaprio from the revenant tho it feels it somedays when I let myself wallow.

    Must do better.


    Been a good day today.
    Various family visits

    Cheered me up

    Rehashing the accident & the repercussions, real or imagined, invade my darker thoughts
    So any distractions most welcome.

    Well enough to be capable of thinking I have found a rhythm through the day that helps rather then hinders.

    As said getting fitter.
    The drag of too many points of injury impacting that, but realistic to know each day is step closer to better/fuller recovery.

    I tell myself Each dawn is a new day, I get to see & I get to see it complete, where so many don't.

    An indulgent whine..sorry

    Onwards and upwards
    Is the only way forward.

    Patience at being a patient is not easy at the best of times.
    Extra gentle hugs from afar for you @jjraak

    Morning all.

    Spoke too soon about mild winter. Chilly 0.4C just now. Dry and sunny predicted, so some carpentry awaits.

    FBG 8.2 mmo/lt at 0645. Same as, same as.........but the tale of the scales says otherwise, so I'll keep with the program of LCHF and dry Jan.

    Have a great day.
