    The evening is just getting started here and so is the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. One of the breeds I will be cheering for tonight is the Bulldog! :)

    Walking is interpreted quite liberally by some of our group, but yes, it’s fun!

    Morning all. Deeper, if not longer, sleep last night. Awoke to 3.9. Long day today but hoping to grab a late afternoon walk in the promised sun on my way to an appointment.

    Morning..feeling.apprehensive...anti-coagulation clinic where I know my INR levels will be though the roof with the addition of BP medication.. first a blood test to check on liver function my GP believes it will also be a good idea to do the HbA1c test too (not due until April)...this is one of his clumsy attempts to micro manage my diabetes...its not the right time for me...but what would I know?...in anticipation of both events woke to a 6.2...:banghead::banghead::banghead:

    To say nothing of bp and pulse! How horrible. I hope that by now your levels have come back down.
    Did the police catch them?

    I hope it will go well. Harry would have loved the Bulldog -- she was snow-white with fawn patches.

    Churchill would probably have been about as impressed as the KittenCat was.

    Thanks Saskia...its just frustrating for me I know my HbA1c is likely to have risen...not due for another two and a half months...and since my GP seems to know naff all about T2 management sometimes I want to shout at him!...Churchill is a pretty chilled out cat...we call him chilli for short...he tolerates one bulldog just:angelic:
