    I have been off the forum for a while. Been trying to be less obsessed with pricking fingers too often, while still checking a few times a week.

    Last night 6.0
    This morning- didn’t check

    Planning a full check up later this week - Fingers crossed

    good morning all :)

    4.3 today

    my computer monitor appeared to have died this morning, no reasuring little blue standby light, no power. Thankfully after excavating the cables etc. from under the desk it was a power connection which had become unseated from it's socket :happy:
    it's amazing (and a bit scary) how stressful being cut off from the internet feels to me now :sorry:

    I love to check in at least once a day, if not more often, to see how we are all doing and how the world is with you ;)

    Hope your day is treating you kindly :)

    Thanks PM...you know its odd but life without Harry is tidier...less frantic & Churchill is loving having the place to himself again...he gets to eat his own food...sunbathe on the back doorstep & doesn't get chased...the floors stay relatively clean...having said that I'd have 'Plumpy' back in an instant...no other dog for me at the moment...possibly I will think about it in a while...maybe next year.

    Monday morning off and running ... 6.6 on the meter ... 23 degrees on the thermometer ... as long as I get out and about before noon I probably won't melt.

    @Shas3 good to see you back.
