    Poor Dennis being tormented by those blasted tradesmen...a few higher results here & there are unlikely to influence your HbA1c results GJC you work hard produce excellent numbers you will be fine...good luck...how I'd manage without coffee first thing is beyond my comprehension.

    I have to make so many cakes for Christmas dunelm the paper & string drove me to distraction (polite way of saying lots of expletives & throwing things) the round ones and the bread loaf liners it makes the whole process less stressful.

    yes am at work, busy deciding whether or not to go home as my cannula has decided to seal itself off again, never rains but it pours. plenty of paracetamol and a whisky hot toddy when I get home and bed, unfortunately Trixie and Sid are only good at standing on things that don't need standing on when trying to keep you warm! But they will try though!

A 7 is anmoying to me too! @gennepher hug for the lack of sleep and you shouldnt be going through this tech fail, shame on them. If chocolate helps so be it.

    John get yourself home madness to be in work when you're ill...if you're in an environment with others they won't thank you for spreading germs around...yes I know what you mean with Trixie & Sid bulldogs are well intentioned...sweet & gentle creatures at least that's their intention...'Plumpy' is desperate to be a lap dog but physically that's an impossibility for him.

    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen and all who missed the political clap trap that is going on. Lots of sympathy for many today, who ever said life is smooth, hugs to all who need them.

    A gentle 8.2 today, still below 10 therefore ok. I'm placing the meter under defcon 3.

    Well folks I run 3 calendars and didn't update them, hence tomorrow 3 events are scheduled, 1 happened yesterday ?? 1 has been moved to today and 1 is still current. Life can be a little confusing at times, I just thank whatever deity I choose that National Bin Day is a constant.

    Because Mrs J is so kind to me, I've let her oversleep by an hour and am making her butternut spaghetti........Their will be trouble ahead.
    Anybody know the WiFi code for the local A & E where I probably end up.
    Have a good one folks.

    He can’t wait to get out there Wednesday mornings to see what revolting bits have dropped off the back of the bin lorry!
    I keep eyeing up the coffee, it’s becoming a very long morning!

    Dont worry Debs that is a very respectable fbg considering you are ILL! Sounds like several have the dreaded lurgy so take time out and relax to get better. Take care.

    Hope you catch up with your appointments @alf_Josiah I have done exactly the same - not putting things on kitchen calendar or phone calendar, then getting in a pickle.
    @Debandez sorry to hear you are under the weather, not surprised if you are a bit run down at the moment though and easy prey to any passing lurgy. You’ve been so busy recently.
    @HarryBeau I’m beginning to think I have a problem with coffee addiction! By the time of my appointment (11:00) I had a thumping headache and felt generally horrible. I’d drunk a couple of litres of water so wasn’t dehydrated. As soon as I got out I detoured to Costa and practically inhaled a strong coffee. About 15 mins later - hey presto! Headache gone, feeling fine and my mood very much improved. Have you found this is you are ever denied your morning fix? I think I should probably try cutting down.

    A lovely low 6.6 this morning, mine not to reason why. Mine but to stick and sing a rousing chorus of "Come Ye Thankful People, Come" a day early, it being THE traditional Thanksgiving hymn and tomorrow being Thanksgiving Day. Thankfully I bought the last of my feast fixin's yesterday so that I can actually feel I deserve a day in out of today's rain without guilt.

    I am thankful for all of you here and for the site itself. A feast of fellowship every day, where, as Jesus quoted, "One sows and another reaps."

    Off now to read what others have posted, and trust that you, @johnpol , have been able to get home and to bed and some rest with the dogs of peace. Peace to Dennis and @DJC3 as well, for surely by this time the bin men are far away.

    Psalm 100.
