    It is a scientific fact that your body will not absorb calories if you take it from another person's plate.

    That's brilliant news.

    I did say I would be in late. I was out with friends for a chilli night and spent the night with a couple of them. I discovered a fantastic chilli sauce from the Upton Cheyney Chilli Company. Roast garlic and ginger chilli sauce. Absolutely gorgeous, and zero salt so it is going to replace soy sauce in my diet.

    I called in to see R Mar at her nursing home on my way home, then did some more self harming (DIY) this avo.

    I'm just chilling and half watching Strictly whilst keeping an eye out in the Parking Ticket forum.

    What have you been up to, apart from lying down in a dark room?

    Oh Fruity what have you hurt this time?
    I don't watch Strictly nor X factor. I will catch up on my recordings in a mo.
    I have been helping my friend, who has tennis elbow. I caught her with a hot cup of tea, wrapped in a cardigan, trying to ease the pain. I went and bought her a wheat pad. She had never heard of one.

    PS. She runs a sweet shop.

    I never watched Strictly when Mr Forsyth was on. I used to go to the other end of the house. Now I half watch and read or surf.

    The gel packs you can heat or put in the freezer are good as well.

    Can I have a tuppeny bag of bulls-eyes please?
