    There I was, in the seafood aisle at the grocery store, looking for fish fingers ("fish sticks" in American ;) )
    when I saw, not shooting sticks, but

    [​IMG]
    So I left them for @ianpspurs and went and bought some cod toes for the KittenCat and myself.

    Just returned from a wonderful night out with 12 friends, lots of good company some 30 miles into the depths of Shropshire. A selection of home made Pate including a cheese one to start served with home baked bread, yes I know, venison hotpot, veg of all sorts, a selection of Puddings all home made, as much wine as you could drink, I was driving so only a smigin for me. On my return Dracula delivered 5.4 not bad, be interesting to see what Morning brings.

    For those with an eye out for Dennis the Menace it's as calm as a mill pond here at the moment.

    They are afraid of nothing, what we call Rough Diamonds and Brass Necked and there lies the problem.
    Still very beautiful though.

    I'm glad you had a great evening with your friends. :)
    I expect that 12-passenger transport will come in handy for the ZA gathering. ;)

    What a shame it has fallen into their hands.
    At least the bridle ways and paths are still accessible. That would not be the case over here.

    I dont get hungry either. Since going lchf. It was like a switch turning off. I have to eat even when not really hungry as dont want to lose more weight. Great when on holiday. I can over indulge and have no worries about putting on weight if I do add a lb ot 1 I know it will come off instantly when I get back to normal eating.

    Flu my backside! I'm obsessed with tracking this virus. I keep up on Twitter. The videos are disturbing. We are not being told the full story that's for sure. Vaccine needed and quickly.

    14th 5.8
    15th 4.1! Middle of the night quick test

    Eaten so much on this break. Low carb managed quite well which has reflected in my libre graphs. Too much alcohol though me thinks!

    Had a wonderful 2 days in Barrow in Furness and now in an Airbnb windermere.

    Some pics before I go back to sleep.

    Good morning/evening folks, a 5.3 on the dice, off to work again this morning hopefully a short shift and then building a garden room for daughter and son in law, Dennis permitting.
    Have a lovely weekend all.

    The whole of my feet hurt @Cumberland with exactly the same whole range of pain sensations you mention.

    It becomes agony when I lie down in bed. I am kicking the bedsheets in the night. I also kick the wall by the bed with my toes to try and make it hurt less. That does work for a few moments in that it changes the pain sensations to different ones... however I don't advise that though. I have probably diverted the original pain sensations into something different for a moment.

    My toes are the worst affected.

    My friend's father in law was diabetic, and had his feet amputated. But the pain didn't go. He couldn't understand why he could still feel the pain in his feet. He was told it was phantom pain.

    It is almost like you are damned if you do and damned if you don't.

    I can understand the dark thoughts and despair and dark places of hopelessness. I do go to bad places in my mind.

    I have had this peripheral neuropathy in my toes for many years now. And trying to explain it to medical professionals who don't have one jot of understanding how bad it is, is soul destroying.

    For me, my daily painting challenge to myself helps guide my mind to a better place. You wouldn't like the see my really dark paintings...I keep these large canvases in the garage.

    I will offer you hugs from the unlimited basket of hugs I offer on here. I know it is woefully inadequate.
