    Happy Birthday, lass. You can put off your celebration until later.
    A1c has gone up but not to a level that you might have feared and you know at least it wasn't caused by non adherence to your usual good diet. Fingers crossed that the scan will immediately show the cause/s of your increased pain and that treatment follows swiftly. Good luck.

Granddaughter coming at 11am we picked our eldest son up from Cheshire ( not the rich part) yesterday he's the veg preparer not sure when everyone is coming but it will be interesting when all 10 arrive,but you are so right we are very lucky indeed for our grandchildren love them all.

    I have a little sign in my kitchen which reads 'Grandchildren are your reward for not strangling your children'.
    I love it. :)

    5.8 for me this morning - a lovely start to Mother’s day.

    Hope all you mums have a wonderful day, I love houses that are full to bursting with family.
    Sadly don’t live near enough to see grandchildren, but 2 of my daughters will be here cooking a roast and low carb chocolate olive oil cake for pud. Yum

    @ickihun Happy Birthday, even if you can’t have cake today, hope you have something planned as a treat tomorrow after your scan.

    saw some beautiful and inventive quilting work in Dornoch cathedral at the 'Fibrefest' yesterday and mum bought some wool (I managed to restrain myself for now ;) ),

    We have found some lovely double petaled primula plants for mum's garden. Hugs to all lovely mums everywhere :)
