    Good morning folks, **** you Prednisolone, naproxen and all you lousy gang of nasties.
    A nasty just less than TEN this morning, tea, kofee, nuts, cheese; now sliding down into low 7s. Just 2 more days of this stuff and then hopefully, once it’s flushed it’s way out of my system, things will revert to normal - whatever that is.
    There is the prospect of a walk up a hill later this morning so best get myself organized and drink more kofee.
    Have a great day if you can.

    LOL you remind me of my friend Arthur, who I'm sure dreams about chicken thighs and even drumsticks wrapped in bacon! When he isn't dreaming about motorcycles ... :hilarious:

    5.6 and so happy with that. In the 5s again.

    It's all coming together nicely re new venture with my gp surgery and local council.

    Dear Deborah ,
    I took the leaflet xxxx had helped you with and showed the other Practice Managers.
    If the council can assist with finding you a room , I can pass the date to the other managers and they will advertise/ invite their diabetic patients. It may have to be a ‘suck it and see’ approach- see if they are interested in attending etc. And you need to be prepared for a slow start... word of mouth helps.
    Blackpool council are very passionate about helping to improve health and social care, so we are all very fortunate to have their support.
    Personally I would suggest we look at a January date if possible- people are always keen to try something at New Years resolution time! We will support you from the surgery as much as we can. Once we get something sorted, I have worked a little with a journalist for a practice management site who may also publicise . But let’s not run before we walk.
    I will wait for xxx to give us some possible availability for a couple of dates for room usage and we can start from there.
    Thanks, xxxx
