    Cool .. I've just been Googling "Z bed" and found a great site called ReadySteadyBed. :)

    111 sounds like a great service.

    Popeye was quiet a few days ago when I got up, and I go into worry mode, but two hours later he is demanding his breakfast, and seconds, and is very lively. I think they have off mornings just like we do.

    I would love to send you my rain @SaskiaKC

    App promised me a few hours with no rain. So I put my washing out. Big mistake. Five minutes later we have monsoon rain, and washing is soaked before I can rescue it. I am soaked to the skin trying to rescue washing. Had to get changed. Popeye is watching me from under my bedcovers through the glass door, dancing trying to get my washing.

    Had a brilliant idea when I came in. What if I put up my garden parasols and hang my washing from the spikes under the parasol? Would that work? Would it save my washing from the monsoon rain, or any rain?

    Thank you for the emojis, @gennepher . Those are exactly what we need here! :)

    The KittenCat just jumped down from her window sill and asked me to get her some lunch. She is now happily nomming some canned tuna in the kitchen. Don't you love it when they purr while they're eating? ^. .^

    Clouds outside now, and I just noticed there's a 60% chance of rain forecast for tomorrow. I hope it will develop into 100% overnight. Temperatures should be lower this coming week, down into the low 80s (high 20s) which will be lovely. The only problem is it will mean putting away my shocking-pink shorts for the winter! :D (But I can still wear my shocking-pink-and-orange tiger-striped socks.)

    KittenCat has finished lunch and sharpened her claws on her coco-fiber mat and just cantered off to see what's going on in the bedroom ... [​IMG]

    now back asking to be entertained ....

    ah me too.
    Didn't live too far from south ken, so any days off it was Battersea park
    or the museums.

    ( I remember battersea when it had the funfair., but in those school days it was hanging out around the boating lake.)

    the science museum a fav, but the history museum, was fascinating.

    and @OldButBold ..was that bonhams up by harrods..as they also had an auction house in lots road, as well..we lived two blocks over.

    I think the scores coming down and you not being too upset, physically by them is definitely a good sign.
    sort of like an airplane flying through turbulence, you've managed to get into clearer air, where the journey is much smoother.

    And Kudos for the breakie...sounded delicious.

    it does seem to ebb and flow, @dunelm , re the food choices and menu, i think.

    much easier if it's two, but if it's just us, and it's dinner for one.. it sometimes doesn't seem worth the effort..:rolleyes:
    liking the planning on the bread / crackers front, mind

    Week 1 of No job.
    seemingly starting to settle down to a life of leisure.

    having a spring clean as i have time now to do and then rubbish to dump or some better stuff to the charity shops for recycling

    Some jobs around the house to do today, so up at Midday..(late night last night)
    and didn't stop until about 7pm.

    sorting out our steph's stuff got assigned the task of checking out all the previous playstations, nintendo, etc for working /connectors etc.

    got the Wii back up, and spent a happy hour or two, player tiger woods golf.
    big kid i know, but oh the frustration as i missed so many simple putts ..:bigtears:
    shall be keping that back for a while until i find some work..;):hilarious:


    snacked on cheese, a cracker and some deli meat late afternoon for brunch as i skipped breakfast..
    so not hungry but felt like i needed some food late on this evening, so ate rather late tonight.

    morning FBG's was 5.7.

    off now to read my latest book, Cobra..love a good zombie apocalypse book and this one is a class apart so far.

    Stay safe all.

    Good morning folks, a straight 6.0 on the testing dice, back to salads and strong coffee this week.
    @trick60 you’re a nice grandad hope you have a good day and youngster settles soon. Am assuming at Uni and my son was the same but it gets better.

    Hope it does PM, because I don't know whether going down to visit is just making her more homesick.
    She is in the Halls and her flatmates seem very nice but she is a homebird and we are a closeknit family, going to see her is great but coming away absolutely breaks us, but as you say "give it time". Back down in a fortnight, going to stay in Rochester this time.

    It's a 5.2 to start the week which is definitely :happy: Weather is not as chirpy as I am so I shall ignore it and stay indoors today. To all those braving the weather, I salute you, and please take care :)

    Morning gentle folks each. So fbg was 5.1 today, slept until 6.30 ish and weight back to trend at least today. I have felt for a long time that I function best in a very particular environment and this WOE is a bit like a misleading clue in a whodunnit fo me. Family weekend, all grandchildren physically or virtually present, watching lots of sport with my boys. Far more effective for me at least. BTW, never above 20 gms carb and *msl @ absurd idea of chaffles last night. Round 2 of man v chemo today.

    Good morning and I have been greeted with a 6.2 after yet another very low carb (less than 15 grams) day yesterday, 1 glass of red wine, 5 hours sleep, 12 hour fast, I really was expecting a lower reading.

    Today we have the heavy rain and it's here to stay so no Mountain Bike ride today, can't face the hour of cleaning my bike on my return. On the positive side I now have a blank sheet of a day with which to do anything I choose, well at least until Mrs MC arises.:)

    @SaskiaKC Hope you did get your wish for rain granted.

    For all those out and about may your umbrellas protect you.
