    Merry Christmas everyone. @HarrisonK great post and such a worthwhile project to be involved with. @trick60 have a great time with grandchildren and I remember getting bikes out of lofts (in other people's houses) and assembling them until the small hours - would swap that for now in a heartbeat. Seasonally frosty here and Santa finally lost the plot - left at least 4 nets of avocados in my gym:angelic: Just to show what a rum cove i am. it will take a lot this Christmas to beat the pleasure I had seeing the mist snake along the fields and ditches whilst walking the dogs just before dark last evening.

    Good morning all and Happy Christmas hope you all have a very special day.

    My numbers this morning 5.3.

    I hope you don't mind but for me a short prayer on this day of all days does not seem out of order or out of place.

    "Thank You, Father, for spiritual leaders and faith-filled friends who keep encouraging us when we are close to giving up.

    And although we have many reasons to rejoice today, Lord, we also know December 25th can be not-so-merry for a whole host of reasons. We pray for those who are experiencing loss this Christmas: relational, financial, spiritual and physical.

    We pray for those who are coping with loving a prodigal and our friends and family members whose hearts are far from You. We pray for those dealing with unemployment and addictions and chronic sickness ... and unending pain and frustrations of all kinds. Thank You, Lord, that You are The Wonderful Counselor and Prince of Peace, even in the midst of our not-so-merry circumstances.

    Finally, Lord, we ask You to grant us peace. Peace in our homes, peace in our churches, and peace in our hearts, when the world all around us spins out-of-control. Help us to stay focused on You, this Christmastime and always. Thank You for loving the whole world enough to send the greatest gift, Your Son, so that we might truly have a very merry Christmas. In Jesus' name, Amen."

    The walk should be amazing - Beds is just over the border - wonderfully still and clear with that lovely frosty smell here. All I can hear are birds and crunch sound of grass as I walk. @JohnEGreen loving the prayer. As our vicar said in her homily last night/this morning, take Christ out of Christmas and all you are left with is M and S (other shops are available)

    good morning and Merry Christmas to all :happy:

    4.4 today

    the weather is a bit grey but who cares !

    last nights frost has mostly gone, coffee and a shower next then an early short walk may be the order of the day before breakfast, mum and her little dog are coming here for dinner so there will probably be much walking with joyful dog frolicking on the beach later ;)

    Hope your day treats you well and will be a joyous and safe one :)

    Merry Christmas All. Some great posts this morning....loving pic of Harry and waiting for one of Banger the Beautiful when he’s done with the wrapping paper.
    Lovely frosty morning in West Sussex, perfect Christmas Day weather. My FBG was 6.7 at 0800 but I made tons of smoked salmon on seeded bread yesterday and had more than my fair share...the daft thing is I dont even like smoked salmon! @HarrisonK hope your day gives you as much as you are giving. When you get back enjoy a treat yourself.
    To everyone and their hounds, cats, crazy aunts or whoever you spend the day with have loads of fun. Hope those a bit unwell perk up and enjoy the day. I have heard a snuggly blanket, a Christmas movie and a glass of something is just the thing.

    You were going so well and would have had a winner rating until that aberration. Despite that, Merry Christmas.

    Merry Christmas everyone!!!! Had the most magical morning seeing our princess open her presents. Now for a family packed day - 14 of us round my moms for Xmas dinner :)
    4.1 greeted me and as an added Xmas bonus the scales confirmed I’ve officially lost 4 stone. I’d hoped for that by Xmas so am over the moon. Now to gain a few pound with as much turkey and pigs in blankets that I can fit on a plate! Have a wonderful day x

    4.8 / 87 this morning. Merry Christmas one and all. Here in Spain it's traditional to have a special meal late on Christmas Eve, 'Noche Buena'. So it's one of those special meals where I put discipline in the back seat. So it's nice to see no change from yesterday morning's BS level. Just fitted an FS Libre yesterday for the first time since September so I could see the spike wasn't too bad last night either (partly kept in check by the couple of glasses of Rioja probably).
