    6.2 this morning which is not bad after my day yesterday. I prefer it when I can deal with peoples stuff over the net, no faffing about. Air fried lamb chops and steak when I got home put the smile back, whilst today will be a 'rinse and repeat' day. Enjoy your day :)

    Hi all on A Cold and Frosty Morning, that sounds familiar, ah yes a good fiddle tune title, so a 5.2 for me today and that's after eating a rather scrumptious puff pastry jam and cream thingy at choir rehearsal last night, lots of Christmas Carols sung for our many pre Christmas gigs.

    A day of cooking and preparing house and musical instruments for tomorrow night. I got carried away asking friends to pop in for a Jam Session, Mrs MC is in a panic as we are now up to 16, could be a noisy, boozy evening :singing: oh and I said we would feed them, I never learn.

    Wrap up warm, don't panic about that big yellow disk in the sky it helps negate Black Friday, hugs for those in need, commiserations for those who missed all the good deals, spread love and happiness where you are able.

    When my daughter first got her cat she sent me a lovely video of him gently tapping the lowest bauble - he’d play for hours like that. She did have it on the sideboard but he managed to get up there. Now he is far too grown up and important to bother with such frivolities.
    I think we might have to forgo a tree this year, the presents pose more of a problem as his favourite pastime seems to be tearing paper into shreds

    4.9 this morning - so all records well and truly broken. Although only just in the 4s it is my 3rd fbs reading in the 4s in a row.

    Maybe it's the new normal or maybe just a rare occurrence - will be interesting to see just what happens next.

    An electric blanket, a purring cat and coffee sound like the perfect day at anytime, but especially today. Enjoy your ‘me time’ it’s very well deserved.

    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen and all who are avoiding the fictitious Blue and Black Friday throw your money away sales.

    A strange 5.2 for me and me's this morning, that meter is up to something!

    Mrs J has to be on her toes today, she has to contend with me and me's my mates chaos, mayhem and the grandchildren 9, 6 and 3. A riotous assembly is ensured.
    Have a good day we plan on having a good day hehehehe.

    Very interesting, but very scary. Thank you for flagging it up. It is good to think that we are not just sorting out our T2D and IRS but are also protecting ourselves from a wide array of horrible conditions.

    The only ones we have are these...taken a couple of weeks ago apparently they were abandoned at just a few weeks old without their mother...by the time they were found they were in a pretty bad way...I think it shows in the photos...

    Take a look at the minimalist lit twig trees..John Lewis do them best. I would get one instead of a real tree if I thought I could get away with it (No 1 son already has 8ft real tree in his flat here and the most amazing Grinch jumper shipped from the US by a “girl” friend..defo need to get to the bottom of that, lol.

    agree, but more so for those much younger then us,

    I'd assume (re dementia,etc) much of the damage is done before 40
    when one considers that the T2D or the IR is what wreaks havoc in out arteries/veins etc
    in our hands , feet & legs...can't begin to imagine the damage caused inside all the tiny vessels in our brains

    all we can do is limit the potential damage as much as possible and we are.
    But for those who find this WOE earlier, ( If any do, of course ) they might not ever be affected by it.
    Please God

    good morning all :)

    4.5 yesterday and 4.6 today

    busy day out volunteering yesterday at the 'big shed' with a trip to the bank in the town two over and then dinner in our favourite little cafe on the way home where we were entertained by the christmas lights and all the people setting up stalls for their town street fair :joyful:

    Since there is no charity shop Friday now I ended up sleeping in late this morning :sorry:

    Mum's visitors arrived safely yesterday afternoon and when we got home our phone line was working again so all in all a pretty successful day yesterday ;)

    Hope your day treats you well :)

    I agree that the earlier we find this WOE the more likely it is that we avoid the damage in the first place. For the rest of us the saying 'better late than never ' is very apt.

    Oh just look at those adorable faces. How wonderful that after such a horrible start in life they are now going to live in the lap of cat luxury for the rest of their days. Which is currently Big Fish and which is Cardboard?
