    All good now thank you.

    Course is always interesting, plastic sheets to walk over, stuffed dummies to carry and step over, balloons to move around, umbrella opened close to pony and wooden bridge to walk across. They ride two coloured ponies.

    Enjoy the walk. Sounds as though the chest problem has abated - I hope so anyhow.

    Today will be a good measure of that, it doesn't feel like an infection has taken hold. We'll see.

    My old mom would have said, "Wrap up warm against the damp, rub in the Vic" :)
    Enjoy your walk, I hope you breath free and easily and with no signs of infections.

    Hugs for the cannula issues john...unlike you I am not a tree surgeon/gardener but I hate hedge cutting...my cousin & her husband are coming over to help me cut the monster hedge in my garden...it must be almost 7/8 foot high and growing wider every day...it's a great divide & screen between the gardens however it is such hard work when it need attention.

    even though I do it for a living (I fly a desk now though) hate cutting hedges, mine are a 10ft tall conifer at the rear of the house and a copper beech hedge at the front, love seeing the birds in it, just hate cutting it. Hope your Hedge isn't too troublesome when you cut it.

    Libre gave me 3.2 this morning @ 3:30am, 4 hours of hypo, and I don’t seem to be out of the woods yet. Corrected to 7.8 by 4:30 and back into the red by 8am. I really don’t understand, I ate my normal yesterday, wasn’t short on shakes, had an extra one in the night and still hypo this morning. Usually I have my last shake at 9-10pm and my breakfast at 10-11am. Really don’t know what’s changed and phoned the doctors this morning I’ve got an appointment with the diabetic nurse this afternoon.
    Yesterday I made my Nan’s birthday card, I hope it’s large enough print for her to read it.

    Good morning - late though it may be.
    A wonderful weekend of dancing the Bossa Nova, in the dark, whilst practicing some Saxon words in the style and accent of Vercingetorix when he realised that changing his winning tactics to siting in a fortified hill fort was not such a good idea.

    Anyhow, the mystery wheel of pain killers drooled out a 4.2 from deep within it’s opioid infested workings this morning.

    A very long walk - and a bit more dosing up on horse linement might just do the trick.

    Have a wonderful day if you can - sun is out here today - still opportunities for sunbathing and balltrap on the Cote Sauvage.

    If I had known about the bacon sarnies!!! If it is going to be cut back then you take it a little further than you want it, it allows it to regrow back to where you want it then just trim it to that afterwards (when it regrows that is) same goes if you are reducing the height. Be prepared for it looking terrible for a good few months until it all grows back in. I want to PTGL my hedge in the back as I hate it. PGTL means Prune To Ground Level if anyone was wondering. Good luck with the Taming of the Hedge.

    Am I the only one missing some posts? I wouldn't have seen @dunelm 's post had @ianpspurs not copied it. Weird ...

    @dunelm I hope the horse linament and other painkillers work. :)

    @Muddy Cyclist I'm glad your head is better. The handy pony class sounds similar to a "trail class" -- fun to watch, fun to ride!

    The walk went well, little breathless on the hills but that is normal for me, so all is well :)
