    I haven’t heard of them, but I like the fantasy genre usually so I’ll look out for them. I love finding a new author, especially if there is a series of books to look forward to.

    They are at the moment DJC but it's relatively early evening...just fed them (again) so a little relaxing before they begin their nightly excursions...they look like butter wouldn't melt...

    It reminded me of the view from the little bridge on Porth Island, @PM , with Gull rock just out of sight. Happy memories of holidays spent there. Enjoy your holiday in June- a lovely place to celebrate a birthday.:)

    They are darlings! I love that bushy raccoon-like tail. Is it always like that, or is it just coming down from some alarm? ^. .^ The KittenCat's tail bushes out when she gets scared, sometimes its whole length, sometimes just a tuft right in the middle.

    I haven't worn high heels in nearly 40 years! :) I was very fortunate back in the early '80s to date a man who wasn't much taller than me. In heels I felt taller than him (even though I really wasn't) so I started wearing flats. I have never gone back to heels. :)

    I have just about decided to keep these new shoes. After all, I bought them mostly for wet winter walking and I don't have to do a lot of that, thank goodness. Today they did not cause as much pain as the first couple of times I wore them, just a little in my lower back. And they are better for walking than my wellies were.
    Once I move -- if and when -- I will be able to check out the lie of the land there and see if I will need any wellies; if I do, I will buy some locally or just order a pair online, as I do all my other clothes these days.
    It seems like no one wears green wellies anymore anyway, which is a shame, because I loved mine.

    Am I the only one having problems with this site? It just started last night. I am having problems tagging people. And I can no longer start a post, then move to a different page of the thread to check something, and then come back to complete my post. It used to remain as a greyed-out "draft," but now it just disappears.

    Good morning/evening folks, 5.5 on the dice today, sausage sandwich for the win.

    I just went back a page @SaskiaKC and my post was still there when I came back, just "greyed out" there must be a glitch in the matrix over there, hope it sorts itself out.

    Have a lovely day all, I have to go jump up and down on a dustbin now.

    Morning all. Found non-consumed 500mg Metformin on my kitchen table.

    So did my FBG test at 0600 with a little apprehension. No problemo. 5.8 mm0/lt.

    Full English with small amount of baked beans awaits. Off to Wales bu car, so don't want to be hungry at the motorway services as they don't have diabetic food. Have a great day.

    Yes they do but not in 'bed' until well after midnight last night...I went to bed at 1am & could hear them playing with their ball tower...I may have to begin confiscating their 'toys' at night...I have the Beryl The Peril & Minnie The Minx of kittens;););)

    Missing the odd Metformin tablet won't do any harm or show in your BG levels immediately...Metformin takes a week or two to get into your system and to come out of it..
