    Wide awake since 3am... Still in bed TRYING to get some zzz time..
    Mind whirring over all the things to do here and when away..Might just give
    it up and just get up in a bit. :rolleyes:

    a busy day today, I so wanted a good night's rest.. Oh well.

    Cemetery, haircut, shoes.. Seeing our Steph..
    And then finish all the packing for flight on Tuesday am.

    So planning went really well...:hilarious:


    Best wishes @ianpspurs for Julie's procedure.
    Hope all goes as well as possible.

    A merry Christmas to one and all.
    Thank you all so much for the help, guidance, laughs, comeraderie and just plain being there for the whole year..HIGH FIVE TO ALL.

    Hoping you enjoy whatever you have planned and have a Happy New Year.

    Spent 3 weeks recently working and listening to (aka ENDURED :D ) all sorts of music, from Nigerian rap to chill out techno. :woot: :hilarious::hilarious::hilarious:

    But by far my favourite was this.. Pretty appropriate for the time of year too..

    With much love to all those we'll miss at the dinner table this year...never really lost when we remember them..xxx

    Winner for the whole feel of 'Back to normal' that all had about it.

    So agree about the fires.. Absolutely awful.
    So blessed here with the more temperate.
    weather

    Hope all goes well and at some point the cats and plumply become BFF
    (as I'm told the kids say ).

    Beautiful start to the cats new forever home.
    Merry Christmas, #lola,Charlie, plumpy,harrybeau.xxx

    Good morning/evening folks, a 6.1 on the dice, T2 check up day today, not looking forward to it but just want to get it out of the way. Hope Julies procedure goes well Ian, my wifes going through similar stuff at the moment, apparently they are going to send "equipment" for her to use, when I asked what that was she replied "you don't want to know".
    Great news on the nephew @jjraak at home is where the proper healing begins. Fingers crossed for Plumpy today it would be great if they became friends.
    Hugs to all, be nice out there you never know who's watching ho ho ho.

    Business part: Fbg shown as 5.7. Human part: Thank you so much on behalf of Julie for the good wishes. @Muddy Cyclist hope tpday goes smoothly for MIL, Mrs M C and yourself. The meal yesterday? was clearly a perfectly timed release valve so ignore whatever fbg today brings. @dunelm your Ultravox post is an instant classic of the genre - nicely understated. @jjraak chill pill time and enjoy the break. Pretentious part: So, 3 sets of promises laid out before me over the past month or so and all tested to some extent. LC flatters to deceive despite the meter lying. Johnson ignores everything he promised on the campaign trail and delivers a spine chilling Qiueen's Speech. Most audacious promise of all is the one that has the guarantee - O Emmanuel today. Time for me to shamelessly retreat into the safe place of my family - absolutely love Psalm 128 especially v 2 and 3. Have a great day.
    Edit: @trick60 posts crossed. Best wishes for today and your wife and thank you so much on Julie's behalf.

    Woke to a 5.1 this morning. Like many of you here my mind is buzzing with ‘things to do’ I have a lot of lists.
    @Muddy Cyclist what an amazing bg result after your slap up lunch, there’s no fathoming it but I’m very pleased for you, hope today goes well and Mil settles.
    @ianpspurs sending good wishes to your neck of the woods for Julie today.
    @trick60 hope your check up goes well. Is it for HbA1c or foot or retinopathy? Best wishes to your wife too for whatever horrible stuff she is enduring at present.
    @jjraak I’ve missed a bit somehow - are you jetting off for Christmas? Where to?
    @HarryBeau I hope your little brood learn to play nice. I’m sure [email protected] will learn to love him. Who couldn’t adore that gorgeous wrinkled face?

    Good Morning and a 6 for me today.

    Lots to do today so it's a good job the days are getting longer.

    @ianpspurs you and Julie are both in my thoughts today, hope all goes well.

    Watch out for low flying reindeer my youngest granddaughter assures me they are doing practice runs.

    Sounds nice and peaceful now, good forward planning, especially fitting in the essential coffee. Hope your first Christmas goes well too, a little ( or a lot) of chaos is expected but that just adds to the fun I think.

    6.9 this morning
    Not sure what I am supposed to do about it. So had usual 2x CWC and nut granola. Feeling a bit sick, probably stress related so didn't have any more food. BG after 2 hours 6.8
    Now thinking probably should not have had anything.
    Answers please.

    This caused me to think on reading https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/dec/23/periodofreflection-social-media and that part of your post struck me having read this the modern ubiquity of coffee, by contrast, highlights the fact that the most acceptable thing to be is uptight and hyperactive. That and texting with thumbs struck me forcibly and yet I am on here which is social media for the middle aged, middle classes. Touche.

    yep..got made redundant..so spent time considering a longer break in india, missus decides not this year and maybe not next..so i plan for a normal April hols..and see how her job pans out next year before going all hippie and leaving the rat race for a few months...

    UNTIL..she tells me shes booked Vietnam for xmas weeks..BOOKED :woot:...and then we spoke about it.:rolleyes:.:hilarious:

    so all in all ..as a Christmas Grinch, was happy to miss it ..
    Not so sure now with nephew etc, but all in play so no point looking at what if..looking forward to it immensity.

    a bit stressy over visa..its Phu quoc, an island just of the coast & special area (free visa on arrival, but can't leave island) .so missus MIGHT get a visa to let her visit mainland (perk of being a brit..:D)
    OR she might be given visa that means we MUST stay on island.

    i got a visa (Irish passport) that SAYS i can go mainland, but some say they ignore it and stamp you as NO exit until flying home..so the arrivals hall moment should be interesting..:wideyed:

    Saigon (ho chi Minh city) on my bucket list, ( read far too much about the history of vietnam, the french war of independence and the Americans war after) so mainland would have been better BUT as we are SO SO close the flight over is on the TO DO list...so will be disappointed if we can't get over due to clerical errors.

    A merry Christmas to one and all at #Chez /Dennis/DJC/mrDjc and brood..xx

    Good Morening......nearly there, just a lingering cough.

    A very naughty and bad night, I ate it and hence an 8.4, but still below 10 phew.

    Hugs to all those who need them and those that will need them to get through the trials and tribulations of this coming week.
    Well folks national bin is almost upon us, a high point of the week.
    Have a great week folks enjoy the high jacked pagan celebration it was stolen by the Romans as I am led to believe.
    Above all else have a great time all.
    Must go protein to catch and prepare. Hehehehe

    The kits are upstairs in their room playing furiously ( I can hear them downstairs) with their toys too many to list...Harry is still in the garden with his (large) chewy bone he won't come in until he's finished as he's food obsessed...meanwhile I get to have another coffee & sort my hair out...those silver threads have to go...have a lovely time PM.
