    Winner may seem odd but is appropriate for your concern for others, exemplified in the last 2 sentences. I think I may have enjoyed the purples (not as much as Celebrations/Heroes, as a family we went off QS long ago) as I haven't yet developed a too sweet dimension to my palate. Thanks for the offer of walking with me but I suspect I am on a road very much not taken.

    I wouldn't be surprised at all if it was the 'the little visitor hitching a ride ' that finally caused the problem this summer.

    5.8 so back in the 5s which I'm happy with

    Jasper Louie has opened his eyes! He has been asleep/in a milk coma since birth.

    We had a call on new years day from one of our tenants. Mouse found in bedroom and one in kitchen. Very clean family. House next door was tenanted but being sold now and empty. Just wondering if coming from there. Phoned estate agents to let them know. Went to b and q to get humane mouse traps. Blue lighted to tenant. She is going through house top to bottom. All decs away. Freaked out and I'm not surprised. Yesterdays update. 2 mice caught, one being a baby. Child coat under the stairs has had fir eaten away! Called in the experts who were there almost immediately. Think we got off lightly this year, about 10 years ago we had a fire at one of the houses. Christmas Day! The shower started it. Didnt spread out of bathroom thankfully but still had fire brigade there and all formalities to go though. Can you believe a company of loss assessors turned up at the same time as the firemen!!!!

    Apart from that our Christmas and new year has been one of the most peaceful and quiet ever. Normally we play rowdy games for 2 days xmas and boxing day but girls only stayed 1 night and went home early due to my daughter being heavily pregnant and uncomfy. Then she was in hospital for 3 days from 28th and we had our granddaughter. Waiting for 'the call'. New year we were exhausted having had little sleep so we actually got a take away in and scrapped plans to eat out, we were in pjs by 8pm. In bed by 11pm watching TV saying how bl**dy lovely it felt.

    Weren't the fireworks spectacular?

    Just pottering around this week plus trying to fit 10k steps a day. Managed so far (2 whole days!!!).

    Today popping at some point to see our grandchildren (feels wonderful that it's now plural).

    @Muddy Cyclist @gennepher great talent, lovely paintings.
    @DJC3 sorry about your escapes over xmas but the way you worded it made me laugh
    Low carb I find ok but getting bored because I'm too lazy to find new recipes. Today that changes. Diagnosed dec 17 and first 2 xmas I didnt stray. This xmas I did. Not too badly but I surprised myself at how easily I did. A mince pie here and there (small 15g carb ones that didnt put up.my bs!) Honey roast parsnips, stuffing. Couple of pieces of xmas cake, xmas pudding, special nuts (honey roasted mixed with chocolate!) A few chocolates here and there. Blood sugars did ok. Couple of spikes here and there. But I'm focused again so all well. Here is my xmas day graph. Suppose it could have been worse.

    Happy Friday to all.

    Meat is a problem for me also. I do eat meat but only in small amounts and not every day.

    Hope you have a good lunch and catch up with your friend. I approve of birthday celebrations that last at least a week. How lovely that you can take ‘Plumpy’ with you too. He must be a very well behaved chap. I’m looking forward to the day we can take D with us for a meal. There are so many dog friendly places in Cornwall but he has a tendency to ‘mark his territory’ . Not sure restaurant owners would be impressed. He’s getting better at staying 4 paws on the floor though, so I’m not giving up on the idea yet.

    Our Labradors absolutely love going with us for a meal. They are very well behaved - although that might have something to do with the fact that they know that a restaurant sized portion of meat, fish or chicken is way too large for me and they sit patiently waiting for their share of it.

    Dennis will get there DJC 'Plumpy' was an absolute nightmare as a puppy & adolescent...he would create havoc at the local park...when we first went to my friends they fell in love with him despite him charging around the place...fortunately they have a massive apartment in the old Spratt's Dog Biscuit factory so a huge space for him to enjoy...Dennis sounds like our kind of dog what a marvellous personality & character he has.

    Hello there SaskiaKC. Could this be a Thomas Kinkade? Not seen this picture before but reminds me of his style.:)

    hello @gennepher , thank you for the link. Yes the fine image is there, but at a price. I'm thinking also of a print of the Kennington Oval Ashes test match, from a long time ago. The latter is on eBay for not much ££. My sitting room wall gets a lot of sunlight, so I'm cautious about hanging something expensive.

    8 for me this morning. At least it isn't a 10 on this 10th Day of Christmas. :)
    The heavy rain is letting up, which is great, because I have to go out grocery shopping.
    Happy 10th Day of Christmas! :)

    I love the purples too, but agree...they are too sweet now and not enjoyable.
    I think you have exiled them forever now...
    Hugs.

    I wish you and my father could have met. He loved steam locomotives and traveling by train, and had some books with wonderful prints.

    Yes it will fade in sun.
    Better something more replaceable if in direct sunlight!
