    Morning. All. 6.2 at 08.45 after a very late night didnt get to bed till 1am. Lovely evening out with my three NCT ladies who I met 29 years ago. We all different lives now but have an incredible bond, not least because there were five of us down the years but one of us is no longer on this planet. Food was ok ish though I didnt eat enough and was cold and hungry when I went to bed. But the comaraderie was top notch
    @Debandez that festival sounds fantastic. If you book next year can you give me the heads up when to do so. I just might make it up that far. @Bubbsie great FBG keep the coffee rolling, it suits you. @Bildad not another bad night so hope the medics can come up with a plan. @harrison and @PatsyB sky larks take the day gently. @ianpspurs good to see you back where you belong and nice score. Dont worry it will soon be the new season never easy in a gooner household.
    Well I have pottering to do today while OH and youngest son go to the cricket in Southampton. Youngest son arriving soon for cooked breakfast and with his bag of work shirts for me to turn around (after his first week in his new job).
    Have a great Sunday everyone. Stay well, stay safe.

    Good morning everyone from another promising day in the dark and dangerous north.

    The wonder wheel of dark o’clock and “why do two year olds decide that 0500 is a great time to get up” whimpered a flat 5.0. Which would have been a coincidence if the clock hadn’t just as the reading was taken, ticked over to 0502.

    The TT’s, Chaos, Mayhem and Little Miss Pamplemousse, will be returned to their parents later today but not until this afternoon. This morning, we are going to visit one of those amazing and exhilarating soft play areas. You know, where children take off their shoes and climb through rooms constructed of scaffolding covered in lots of protective plastic coated foam while parents sit in a badly run cafe, serving things that were once food, looking all grey and bewildered, like zombies in one of those once popular TV programmes. Yep, that’s just the way we roll nowadays. Pass me my Foster Grants and a big cigar.

    Have a great day if you can.

    Good morning folks 5.9 on the testing dice, beautiful morning the sun is revving itself up and the lawns are calling to be trimmed, however the missus is at church, I've got a dodgy ankle, so I'm doing nothing until I get proper shouted at.
    Have a lovely day all.

    Up late...FBG. 6.3

    beautiful day yesterday with my Lauren of arabia.
    Out for a walk in the sunshine, intending to find some where nice to eat, undecided on chinese, indian, thai or vietnamese.

    met a few friends while out, so a nice old catch up before parting.

    Lauren suggested a celebratory drink for the good scores, so it seemed rude to refuse.

    She had tonic water and ice, i went for the good old paddy stand-by a Guinness.
    (can't drink one without a nod to my dad, his favourite tipple.)
    so pleasantly sat in the sunshine drinking the one drink, enjoying the company and chat.

    Ambled off and after some mooching over a few restaurants decided on vietnamese..

    New waiting staff it seemed, a little clueless, but friendly and it just added to the charm.
    Owner nice right on the ball and interceded when i started asking about the beer selection.
    Got into a nice conversation about the vietnamese beers on offer.
    mentioned we were considering going next year..(been on the list for ages, ( Hoi an, if anyones been ?)

    Lauren the food queen did the ordering, so we got pancakes, spring rolls and a prawn Phu soup, and Grilled fish with chilli soup for her.
    Gratuitous Insta pics for those curious.
    phu saturday 20 july.jpg

    Like the other cuisines, but for me the Vietnamese is just a touch lighter with way more delicate flavours.

    a pleasant stroll home, stopping of to get a few bits for the fridge and we were all good..

    not sure of bloods pre meal, but heading out i was at 5.9
    and once home, consider it around 2 hours after i started eating i was 7.1
    beers (2) and foreign food.(noodles, pancake and spring roll batter:wtf:...) that seemed a decent score.

    Both slightly pooped after all the fresh air, so sat down meaning to watch a film and both fell asleep on the couch..:hilarious:

    Best wishes for a good day, all.

    Morning all 5.9 for me. Mr C mowing lawn and Dennis having his morning nap so I’m free to post. Have to first share a proud mum moment: out for our morning walk met a near neighbour and his adult mini Schnauzer - dogs played boisterously for a bit but leads got tangled so I asked Dennis to Sit .... and he did! Right in the middle of all the doggy excitement. The other chap was impressed and said to his pooch ‘why don’t you do that?’ Haha probably never happen again though.
    Just checked bg now and I’m up to 6.8 so liver is finally done with processing all the wine I had Friday night ( yesterday I felt a bit fragile and bg stayed lowish) but now it’s catching up and dumping all the stuff it should have dumped yesterday I reckon.
    @Krystyna23040 it’s great to read that you got so much out of your course and are so inspired - shame about having to do all the admin now but how happy you’ll be afterwards!
    @Bildad sorry your migraines are still affecting you - when do you get your scan results? ( sorry if you’ve already said and I’ve missed it)
    @gennepher hugs for the higher fbg and your aching back. Hope you get to sit with Cat in the sun later.
    @ianpspurs glad you survived Peppa Pig world and normal service has resumed. @dunelm your summing up of soft play is spot on - why are the cafes always so terrible and I dread to think what lurks at the bottom of the ball pool.
    @PenguinMum it sounds like you had a wonderful day with your NCT friends and I’m sure today will be super with your youngest ( once his laundry is out of the way)@Bubbsie great fbg recently in spite of your troubled few days. I hope things get better for you soon.
    @pavlosn brilliant photo again.
    @jjraak I’m so happy for you that you are now normal!! The Vietnamese food sounds lovely - one of my girls spent a bit of her gap year travels there and fell in love with it.
    @Debandez what a brilliant time you’ve had- great photo. I’m definitely saving the date for next year.

    hahaha..do so remember those wacky warehouse days.
    had our steph to the local one many times, plus my nephews kids at some points.
    only saving grace was it was walking distance and a cold beer from the bar proper was permitted
    (plastic glass obv)..But we did and survive, just a little bit more worn down but the kids enjoyed it.

    good luck surviving further episodes of mayhem...:wideyed:

    On the bright side, Come the Zombie apocolypse, you'll have many of the neccessary skill set needed to survive.

    ( Mhhh....May have to try and make my way to you...keep an eye out for us..;)
    You could be the DCUK's Rick Grimes...:D
    (NB; No violent scene..ricks emotionally charged reunion with wife & son S1 Ep3)

    Nice to see the doctors note about Peppa pig world's being fatal, was a misdiagnosis, @ianpspurs ;)

    @PatsyB ..hug for the poor sleep, hope a kip later refreshes you for the day ahead.

    @HarrisonK ..that body clock is a weird and wonderful thing isn't it... Working, struggle to get up.. Day off... Wide awake at silly o'clock.:arghh:

    @pavlosn .. Great pic, good composition I think they call it..:)

    @Bubbsie .. Hope the day is treating you more gentle then of late.

    @Krystyna23040 .. Great news on the new exercise regime... And all the admin will make that transition smoother and easier for you, i'm sure.

    @Bildad ..how annoying.. Those migraine seem to have become a constant pain.

    @gennepher .. Commiserations on the back pain.. Well remember mine.. Hugs for a better day.

    @PenguinMum .. Sounds like a good evening was had by all.:)

    nice to see good scores @karen8967

    @DJC3 .. Our very own Barbara Woodhouse..:D

    Good day all. X

    Just googled Rick Grimes and now I need to google TTWD??? More lessons. Every day I feel more isolated from most members on here - quite an interesting spot to occupy. PP World not fatal to me but Julie is in serious pain and barely able to move so it was definitely a mistake but it will take a very long time for us to have a sensible debrief and plan for the other 2 sets of grandchildren. My only pain was to the wallet, hers was predictable and not to be repeated.

    Apocalyptic soap opera in essence.
    Sci fi lover here, so it was right up my street.

    But it is gruesome, and violent, so not for every one.
    and for me what it does WAAAY better then anything even remotely close is the full range of emotions.
    Acting is good, storyline if you can suspend belief of the background is top notch.

    Being special in that kind of a way, is fine.
    You like what you like.

    personally i can't really get into the family guy type shows the way others do.
    Though i do love humour..so Big bang theory, friends and for those of a certain age SOAP was always going to be on my list of 'To watch ' shows.

    So different :watching:..what's not to like,:wacky:... who wants to be part of a herd...:wtf:

    Those references mean nothing to me but I get the drift I think. Not being part of the herd is one thing but the current trend (IRL and at times on here) of hurling abuse from within our safe silos is useless IMHO. It is good to try to understand something about "the other"

    not sure who you mean @ianpspurs

    But like you i'm all for understanding other viewpoints.
    sadly on here as well as in real life 'Tolerance' can sometimes only apply, like respect
    FROM those who demand it of others, without themselves wishing to give it back, sadly.

    Something that seems to grow from the social silo's, where no one who disagrees is allowed a voice, so of course those of certain viewpoints grow with an unhealthy idea that because all in their group agree with them, so must the rest of the world, and if they don't they are wrong.

    Sure i've posted before re this, President Obama, covered it beautifully in one of his speeches.
    paraphrase.." we must listen to other viewpoints, regardless of if we agree or not, because just maybe we might walk away with a "mmh, they DO make a good point"

    a view i'm more then happy to take.and then make my own mind up.

    Have a nice day fella.
    Hope Julie feels a little better soon.

    Thanks for the commiserations on my head pain.
    @DJC3 I have to keep a migraine diary for 2 weeks and then go back to see the doc. That will be at the beginning of my week at summer camp so no chance of going then. I will try to get an appointment before I go but that is not as simple as it sounds.
    A suppose a week at camp will be a kill or cure solution!! Just off our with the dogs for a stroll in the fresh air. I wish they were as obedient as Denis. You seem to have done a good job with him.
    Take care
