    Morning All. 6.2 for me today. Late on parade because youngest son home briefly and sent him back to Bath with a full tummy and lots of meals for his freezer. Had a nice day yesterday relaxed cooking in my kitchen for son and us. Started my Christmas cakes by soaking fruit in 2 glasses of brandy so it should be drunk enough to mix on Monday.
    @Chronicle_Cat enjoyed reading about your cats. We have two rescue girls Bobbie and Daisy both aged 6 who are so different in character but get along fine. I missed them when I was away, well I have to have something to mother.
    @Ziggy2017 enjoy your celebratory meal, Tues is quite an important anniversary.
    Have a great day everyone. Stay well, stay safe.

    Hello. Your friendly goldfish has returned from Lisbon in one piece. Thought I could get away with a couple of naughty treats while I was there (the custard tarts were very nice).
    My meter was missing me and now it’s being unkind.
    6.8 this morning. Will soon get that down again

    Hope you are all ok.

    Afternoon...no test earlier up late & had to get stuck into tidying the house for arrival of guests...I would do one now but I'm covered in coal dust after cleaning out the fire grate ready for more guests later...wow...just call me Cinders...had to make a hard decision this morning one I'd been wrestling with for several weeks...it's done now & the relief when you know it's the right decision is palpable.

    @Chronicle_Cat thanks for posting about your kitties. I enjoyed reading about them. 40-some years ago I had an almost-all black cat who meowed like a Siamese. One of his grandfathers was a Siamese, so I'm wondering if maybe your Sheena had a Siamese grandparent. Sometimes part-Siamese kitties are all or nearly all black.

    @DJC3 I'm sorry to hear about your dog. But I'm happy for Maggie and for you.

    My husband and I joke about their "purr-sonalities". I know most of the more intelligent animals have very distinctive personalities. My mom who grew up on a farm told me that horses have as much individuality as dogs and cats, then dairy cows a bit less, sheep even a bit less (except for a ram who was bottle fed and kept wanting to come in the house because he thought he was human) and chickens even less than sheep.

    We have wondered that ourselves. I've been asked by people who've never met her but heard her meowing over the phone if she is Siamese.
