    Well bg didn’t drop but it stayed the same (6.0). So that’s fine - usually rises into 7s by mid morning.
    I’m also in the garden, no fancy toys just broom, shovel and trowel but feeling v happy in the sun.

    @DJC3 it definitely won't be tomorrow because I've not skipped back to Oxford but rather limped and the stress of the last week and especially today is already telling me that my madam is acting up, little sod. You will be cheering for me soon as I will be for you and everyone who's happy with their FBG

    That has placed all kinds of images in my head. I am hoping we are talking about bags of horse manure or similar

    Wow there’s always so much to catch up on when I’m working ( cannot access site at work for some reason) as I read thru I think - oooh. I will respond to that one and that one and then I forget when I get to the end. I do remember @alf_Josiah offering challenges tho and keep missing the op to take part - I did say Aaahhhrrgggh jimlad to my SO and he just stared at me lol. But I did smile at everybody I encountered- I always do. I’m super friendly. Hopefully it made somebody smile too. Can I have special dispensation to do them a day after everybody else? Lol. Night all and fantastic numbers to one and all xx

    Hello, the pirate challenge was set by Mr @dunelm and of course you may have a dispensation. A smile costs nothing and a houmourus word may brighten somebody's bad day. Night nite.

    Morning all. FBG highest it’s been in a long while at 5.9. Up and down all night with cramps and digestive issues. So glad it’s Friday. Been a long week at work and I have Tuesday off as well as the bank holiday so 4 days to straighten myself out.
