    Crikey... it's 0300 and 6.2
    Bad dreams and bad memories do not make good company, drink of hot cocoa and cream should do it ;)

    And that reminds me if a sign I saw in a van in front of me the other day 'blind man driving'. I looked up to see it was a delivery van for Budget Blinds!

    I'm so behind on the thread, busy time for me. Putting house on the market and painting at the mo from top to bottom. Such a nice day yesterday me n hubby did all fencing (100 ft garden and surrounded by the blighters!). Today is bank holiday so no doubt it will rain but we can carry on inside if that's the case. Used to working around bad weather in the UK! Especially over bank hols! Anyway, doing the fences was definitely a win win as its saved me the expense of a spray tan. I'm now a lovely shade of medium oak. I tend to get more on me than what I'm painting!

    Yesterdays reading 5.3. Not done today's yet as only 4am. Woke up as son has just come rolling in from a lads night out. His version of trying to be quiet and mine are at opposite ends of the spectrum!

    Enjoying the banter on this thread. Very funny. Happy bank holiday Monday to all. Hope the sun shines wherever in the world you are.

    Good morning, @Debandez . If I didn't know better I'd think my neighbor had been out with your son!

    Nice tip @HarrisonK
    Good reviews too.
    Have got nephew with COPD, will mention to him.
    Also good for me, if symptoms return.
    (No pollen, just dust mite allergies)
    Missus gets the hay fever, so might be useful for her as an added ''weapon' against the invisible enemy.

    Many thanks

    10.1 this morning, recovering from surgery, so exercise regime’s gone.
    Aching to relaunch myself onto country paths, over country styles.
    A while yet, but a good carrot to dangle, aid & abet my recovery.

    Had a little lie in this bank holiday morning. (Up at 6.30 instead of 5.45) My aim today is to do as little as possible except for the jigsaw I started last night. Really need to finish that as I can't eat at the table until I do.
    Have a good day

    5.2 on this cold and frosty ! You know British weather has absolutely no sense of occasion.

    @gennepher I can but sympathise with the wonderment of technology. Im sure you can teach the interminable thing several new words and phrases once it starts to behave!

    Have a lovely if not rather chilly day one and all

    Have a good day. The temperature did really drop in the night...

    They sound great and they even have salt rooms in America I believe but one draw back is that inhaling salt solutions it seems can sometimes cause restriction of the airway so should be used with caution if you have Asthma as do I. I still may give it a go though as I also get hay fever every year but cannot take antihistamines

    In fact may get daughter to try it as she is actually allergic to antihistamine which can make things a bit awkward.

    I had to make a bathroom dash at 5am so checked fbg then and it was 9.8 but I usually meditate an hour or so when I wake up and do gentle bed exercises before I do the fbg.

    A couple of hours later after doing meditation and exercise I am 8.4.

    So is my true fbg 8.4? Because I haven’t eaten or drunk anything yet?

    It’s now just gone 8 am and I have had one black coffee, and now a coffee with cream and cinnamon sprinkled on it (delicious!), and I am having my morning chocolate. I always start the day with a few cubes chocolate...a must in my mind....mmmmmm...sucking the chocolate slowly...its delicious flavours permeating my mouth....

    Have a good day. But it is somewhat chilly and icy. Cat is burrowing into me. He says it is too cold. He is 26 years old, and very fit for his age. And he will be 27 years old at the end of this month of May.
