    (Do I want to ask what a nizzle is?)
    I've only ever been anywhere near the fens once and there were no farm gates and not even the cows were chewing straw. ;) But hey, I went to Auburn University. Straw and farm gates are right up my alley! (Er, street. Er, track.) :D

    Now I really must go find a copy of the book I'd thought about for my Christmas-New Year read. The Nine Tailors.

    While I am out in our garden throwing peanuts to the squirrels ...
    One of my neighbors buys them peanuts and they have seen me with her often enough that they started coming up to me expecting to be fed. If I happen to have peanuts in my pockets I will feed them, but today I was out there filling up the bird feeders with the dustiest seeds I've ever seen. Definitely something to be sneezed at.

    Morning all. 5.3 today. Nice round trip to Southampton today so definitely off grid all day and no chance of 10k steps. It should only be 2.5 hrs each way but it usually - 10 years now - takes far longer. It will be good to see our son and wife plus granddaughter but the journey has often featured huge delays. Came back in a blizzard last December so this looks likely to be much better. Have a great day.

    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen and all who are making very alcoholic not diabetic friendly mince tarts.
    Mrs J has caused a seismic shock my getting up this early and making tea so therefore an early pretea reading of 7.5 from my half asleep meter.
    Me's are busy planning another unsupervised day hehehehe
    Have a good day folks.
    All who are traveling have a safe journey and don't keep asking " are we nearly here yet ? " Especially if you are the one holding the roundy thing and doing the pedally bit.

    4.4 this very fine morning. As it’s the last day at work this year we always have a sandwich from the cafe for breakfast. Looking forward to the fact I need to order a full breakfast this year! Have a good day all!

    10.2 at 6am and up to 12.1 at 6.30, all rather mystifying after 7.5 at 9pm, 2 hours after dinner last night. Yes it’s DP but far worse than it was. I’ve left home really early so after a 1.5 mile walk to the station got me down to 11.1, I’m hoping a 2 mile stroll across London will get me to a more sane level Have a great day Peeps x

    5.7 this morning. Ate very late last night so expected higher, so I’m happy this morning. Also the rain yesterday must have come from a different direction as the kitchen is dry, no floods, no brown water coursing down the walls. What an excellent start to the day.
    Granddaughters being dropped off in a few minutes as they’ve broken up now so a jolly, fun filled day ahead ( I hope)
    Have a great day all

    Thanks for the good wishes but you have a chimney to fix. Has it been done yet or will that be dreckly? (I envisage Jethro and mates turning up with a few flagons of scrumpy) Posts crossed

    When i got diagnosed last year my doctor phoned me and told me it can be reversed and gave me the name of a doctor who reversed his own, he was really encouraging and i did well last year but with lots of family problems i didn't look after myself , i only put one pound on but now have lost another stone in weight so the total since last March is 34lbs weight loss and my reading this morning is 6.9 .
