Morning all, 5.9 here. Action stations at Robin Towers this morning, son and daughter and cat arrived yesterday to stay for the local beer festival (the cat isn’t going to the festival). Meanwhile OH and I are attempting a few days in North Devon, (our second attempt, we were cancelled last November with the arrival of a lockdown). So we have to tiptoe out without disturbing any hangovers, and I just have to make sure I haven’t packed the cat.
Enjoy your trip to North Devon at last. This time last year we’d just arrived back home. Must admit prefer the north of the county to the south. Better beaches on the whole. Are you planning some SWCP walking?

Fantasy house purchases from yesterday.

This one looks charming https://search.savills.com/property-detail/gbskisski200259

This looks good and really isn’t expensive for what it is

Here’s the in need of renovation winery…

I’ve settled on this one though.
Only the 9 bedrooms so might be a bit of a squeeze nevertheless.

And BG 6.6 just now. BP 138/82 which is bonkers high but really only stress related with the VRI today.
“Only” €1.6 million. Bargain!
We could go halfs on the Cannes Chateau. 4.5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms each. We might just manage. I’ve been to Cannes, wasn’t keen though, is there anything in St Tropez? Much preferred it. ;) I’m off to have a ratch down the side of the sofas to see if I can come up with the €60 million needed!:p

5.4 for me this morning but there was too much red on my graph last night again and 2 Lift tablets to bring me out of it. Bummer! Thought I had it fixed but I had to stick in a late correction last night to deal with the Mount Everest that another of those Lidl sweet mince pies caused (I really must give up that experiment as that is now 4 attempts and 4 fails in 4 weeks.... I am drawing the Himalayas on my Libre trace) so perhaps I was a bit too generous with the correction but I panicked a bit when I hit 15.9 with an upward arrow!... So much for my TIR stats recovering!

@Gwynn So sorry things took a turn for the worse yesterday. Hope she is better today. Is it likely that she has actually been discharged and if so do you have any way of challenging that? It seems that you have so little support with her anyway that cutting off that clinical anchor is just cutting you both loose on a rough sea. Really hoping you have a good day today to at least partly make up for the bad one yesterday.

@Grannylorraine So very sorry to hear about your friends and especially when you have major question marks hanging over your own health, that must make it difficult. And then to have your appointment on the day your Dad died is really not the sort of coincidence you need. How lovely that your son has cancelled his trip in order to take your Mum to the crem because you can't make it. You must be so proud of him!

@ColinUK Thinking of you today and hope it goes as smoothly as possible. Please touch base with us when you get back. X

@eggyg I love your wit and dry sense of humour. Belated congratulations on your Diaversary yesterday. Will Mr Eggy be treading the grapes himself or will you be getting that task?

He’s got a press now. Just a hand one from Amazon but it saves his feet from going all purple!

It was an interesting conference today about Type 1 and Tech organised by Diabetes UK. Much good information.
Did anyone else see it?
Links should follow about recordings of the speeches.

One trip that always used to be on my bucket list was a hike to Everest Base Camp.
now a trip to Lidl may have to suffice!
Or would that allow me to summit?

Oh yes, you can definitely bag the peak Duncan with a Lidl mince pie! It's the descent afterwards I don't particularly enjoy!

Just out of the VRI.
3 1/2 hours pretty much.
Huge sense of relief and release at it being done.
They confirmed that they do know who he is and said they’re trying to trace him. When they do it’ll be arrest and interview etc.
Right now it’s pizza, Strictly, ice cream, blankety blank and then Squid Game I think. And sod the diabetes for an evening

Good to hear ColinUk. I agree. Sod the D this evening.

Me I am going to chill out with a whisky.

Mostly calm today but I have felt miserable all day, sadly. I don't enjoy being beaten up (verbally or otherwise)

Just caught up on everyone’s news.

4.1 and falling on waking this morning. Had a day of cleaning and school working. Both sorted for the week then it’s 1/2 term - yay! It gone quick.

Enjoy the assorted food and drink and TV tonight. Hubby just gone to collect a Chinese - yummy.

Enjoy your trip to North Devon at last. This time last year we’d just arrived back home. Must admit prefer the north of the county to the south. Better beaches on the whole. Are you planning some SWCP walking?
I remember feeling jealous at the time, you’d had your N Devon hol just in time before re-lockdown! The SWCP runs right past the cottage here in Bideford, albeit round a flat estuary! I stepped outside when we arrived and immediately saw a curlew on the mud flats. We are planning to get to some of the steeper bits later in the week, got to work off the calories I will no doubt be ingesting!

Enjoy. Not a million miles from where we were. We were near Clovelly and not far from SWCP. I’m jealous now!
