    @geefull Today is exactly 3 years since I started testing and recording and I matched a luminary such as yourself! Your menus always sound impeccable - enjoy. Rain eh? This part of the world is drier than Jerusalem in normal times and these ain't normal! Dwarf cereals ( not meant to be dwarf but lack of water) ripe now. Plenty of wailing and gnashing of teeth from certain quarters. No sympathy from me very good year for apples and pears:angelic:

    I think a lot of people who probably shouldn’t are going to be wearing waistcoats soon.

    Oh no, I can feel your pain and hope you are okay now. One has to be very careful when handling blades like that. I did cut myself once but it was minor and I had learned my lesson. Hugs to you.

    Thanks Keesha If I'd known the blade was there and uncovered I would have been a bit more more careful but these things happen and I'm OK now so will learn from the experience hopefully.

    @Canvaspic thanks I’m sure I’ll be ok to wait until Friday the doctor I’m seeing specialises in stomach and bowel so hopefully he will have an answer

    @dogslife sadly I’m not feeling good at all I’ve been out for dinner but it seems to have caused a lot of pain in my stomach I’m sitting with a hot water bottle again tonight

    Sorry to hear that, Ziggy. Could you ring your GP's surgery and ask for an emergency appointment tomorrow morning? I have a lot of abdominal pain due to IBS and diverticulitis and I use one of those mini electric blankets/ heat pads with adjustable controls so you can leave it on for as long as you need. More comfortable than a hot water bottle and doesn't need refilling. Feel better soon.:)

    @dogslife and @Ziggy2017, Zigs I’m so sorry ur feeling ill, it’s bad enough anytime but in this heat it’s rough. I hope you feel better soon.xx Both, I only saw the end of a thread about Alzheimer’s/dementia but did you know that a Keto diet can improve things for sufferers ( if you can control the persons food of course) it was in a link by Dr Bikman on Facebook. Xx
