Morning Mick, morning all.

It's chilly and a bit damp in North Leicestershire but the forecast is better for when I do the school run this afternoon.

Good luck with the blood test Mick - I know nothing about various types of diabetes but I imagine someone will.

Good morning Mick Kitty and all the Earlybirds.

Hope you get some helpful advice Mick

Taking my sister out for the day whilst she is on holiday. She has great difficulty walking with her arthritis and I have had to plan our trip out knowing where benches are to sit etc. It makes me realise how I should value my walking and getting about skills.

Should be a nice day in the Thames Valley.

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. The sun is up in South Yorkshire but it is very cold. We will be looking at paint this morning; oh joy! Have a good day, folks.

Morning All

Grey and dismal here in Norfolk.

We went to some friends for dinner last evening who we haven’t seen for a while and I remember looking at my watch just before nine to work out when I could eat again on this 16:8 diet. A few minutes later it was 12.45!! Didn’t wake until 7.30 this morning so hopefully I’ve got over the clock change!

Off to the hairdresser this morning, then I’m baking the Christmas cake.

Good morning, cold and frosty in the north east but it is clear and sunny.
DH meeting up with old work colleagues this afternoon so I will be watching rubbish TV grin

Good morning, a bit brighter this morning here in N Bucks after last night’s downpour!
See what today brings,the good news is that paw hasn't broken his hip but it is severely bruised and he can't move his left leg, walk or stand . Also on heavy duty pain relief.
Codeine and oramorph if he needs it on top of paracetamol (of course.) The bad news is that the stool sample we took to the Royal Free on Sunday has tested positive for C. Diff (again) but the up side of that is a single room to prevent spreading the bug to other patients. It explains why his guts were still in turmoil.
Don't know how long he will be in, got to get him on his feet as well as bang the infection on the head.

Good morning all.
Very frosty here this morning, but the sun is shining.
Glad to hear Paw doesn't have fracture. Hope everything else improves soon.
Good luck with the test Mick.
Nan enjoy your day with your sister.
Have a good day everyone.

Good morning everyone.
It's cold and frosty, but very sunny in Tynedale this morning. Going to Knit and Natter this afternoon. I think I might make some more mini Christmas stockings.
Enjoy your Wednesday everyone.
