    Morning All. 5.7 today so fish supper wins again.
    @gennepher I loved reading about your day at the mill and all the lovely things you found. Wool Heaven...I wouldnt have been able to come away without some rugs. Dont worry about the splurge...its happiness that matters! I used to enjoy knitting small animals and dipped my toe in the water of needle felting (see my avator) but I havent picked up my needles for years. I tried earlier in the year when OH was away for a week but my sheep didnt turn out well and it ended up in the bin. I would love to get my confidence back in that regard.
    Hugs to all suffering lack of sleep. Have a great Saturday everyone. Stay well, stay safe.

    Flu jab administered and the parks dog pack petted. Just took a reading before indulging in breakfast and I'm 4.6, which is a fair drop from my waking numbers and considering I'm still on antib's and steroids.

    As I said, I know nowt about managing T2. Time for an asparagus and mushroom omelette :)

    Hi all I thought that I'd join this thread after seeing a link posted on one of the morning Bg threads . Looks far more interesting, not sure if I will add anything of interest to it tho :). Yet another poor night's sleep awake from 12.30 till about 4 this am took BG after 3 hrs sleep and it was 6.8 . Not brillant seeing as I am sticking to low ( ish ) carbing .

    Hi there, nice to see you made it. Your post is already interesting... you hit 6.8 after three hours sleep. Brilliant or not it's useful to know, especially as I can spend the night awake and hit those numbers thinking "it's just me".

    Have fun ;)

    Welcome to the dark end; no street lamps on the dark end of the street but we do keep one another buoyant and brightly lit.
    Reminds me of a James Carr song.

    The hug is because reading your post was like reading a post by my mother. She was a wonderful seamstress and shopped at fabric stores the way people shop at grocery stores. As a girl she loved going with her mother, as I loved going with her. Looking at the pattern books, then at the bolts of fabrics, then at the threads, the buttons, the zippers, the trims ... :) plus a couple of trips to one particular mill store to buy curtain material and slipcover material ...

    What a lovely post to awaken to, and to read over breakfast with coffee. You have taken me on a trip down memory lane, and I enjoyed every word. Thanks. Big hug.

    P.S. I hope you made it back there before any rush on the shocking pink fleece! I started wearing shocking pink again just a few years ago having not bought any since about 1970. Fleece is about the only material that brings out the KittenCat's kneading instincts ... she loves making fleece biscuits especially when I am lying under the fleece!

    7 on a partly cloudy Saturday morning. The KittenCat let me sleep in and was rewarded with treats for breakfast. Now let's hope she makes that connection in her mind ... I do not have to yowl for treats I will get some if we sleep in they will not go away if we sleep in ... ^. .^

    @mojo37 welcome to the thread. It's good to see you here! It's a great place to be. :)

    ... I just Googled "Saturday Seven" to see what might pop up for a pic to post and I found a quilting site which I thought was appropriate after reading the posts about fabrics and creating things from them ... especially this seasonal quilt ...

    Good Morening and Afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen.
    A well behaved 6.1 again this morning.

    Well folks I was asked yesterday what was the worst impulse purchase I ever made, instantly one of me's replied " my marriage certificate ". Needless to say Mrs J was not impressed and the bruising is coming out now. Shortly I will be allowed home from A & E. Now on a liquid only diet it will be a low carb one.
    Have a great day.

    Yes I did! I got the shocking pink fleece!
    Fleece awakens Popeye’s kneading instincts as well. He has a good go into making it the perfect den.

    Glad my post awakened good memories for you to enjoy over your morning coffee.

    Thank you for my beautiful hug :)

    5.3 @6.55am
    Nodded back off
    4.6 when I woke back up at 8.18am
    No reason for the drop. Sometimes it mystifies me.

    Just popping on for a minute to post fbs and hoping to catch up on posts tomorrow.

    My son works for 111. He has just popped home for lunch. Told me that a colleague got a call today from a diabetic who wants to change how they eat from seeing a lady on This Morning program!!! The whole office was buzzing when they found out. They all had watched me live! You dont know how happy that makes me. One more educated.

    Hope you are all enjoying the weekend

    @SaskiaKC that autumn leaves quilt and cushion is beautiful. I have a childhood friend who I used to go to sewing classes with and neither of us were very good. However later on she lived in Saudi for many years and the American ex pat ladies taught her quilting and she lives and breathes it now. I have always been envious of her sewing room and what she produces.
