    Good morning all, dry here but rained overnight.

    Bubbs, I know quite a few diabetics. They live normal lives, and one of them is, shall we say, large. He lost a lot of weight, almost got off insulin, then put it back on the idiot. I'm assuming it is Type 2, controlled by diet and pills, in which case you will do fine xx

    It's 3am and everyone's sleeping, so I can probably say this and no one will notice, ive got a confession to make, I've not got any sharpies, I'm not even sure what ones to get. There I've said it!

    It would appear that common sense doesn't run in the family!

    His brother Andrew said: "When you are younger you are taught about electricity and the bath, but you don't think about this.
    "I still find it hard to believe that between the charger plug and the phone would be enough electricity to kill someone."


    Mr Bull had used an extension lead from the hallway of his Ealing home so he could use the phone in the bath.

    Good morning Elite - I drove home from Hampshire yesterday, via Solstice Park near Stonehenge to pick up an emergency Rommie resscue foster doggie who will be staying with me while she is assessed and moved on to her new forever home. Emily is a little darling BUT at only 2 is still very puppy'ish so a lot more active and time consuming that my two oldies Plus I have to walk her, which I did manage OK actually yesterday. Must be the Naproxen I have started to take that's eased the pain in my right knee

    During the night she slept in lounge OK but she did decide to gather up Millie's old toys which I had still lying around and she included my many stuffed toys from back edge of sofa So they are now in a bag in the bedroom out of her way. She hadn't chewed any of them, just gathered them up, bless her. I'll post a pic later. My two are still in boarding at moment

    Snap and mhoc, I was so sad to hear about your sisters - my thought are with you both at this distressing time

    And sad to hear your news too bubbs, but make the adjustments and follow all the advice from diabetes nurse and you will be OK. One of my friends Andy was diagnosed about a year ago and is fine. He just has to keep a check on his sugar levels and adjust eating accordingly. My friend I stayed with, Kit, is Type 1 diabetic, born with it and that is a different matter, but with type 2, you are sensible enough to deal with it. You don't have to give up everything sweet but just be sensible

    Did I just put sensible and bubbs in the same sentence

    Anyway, I have a shift at charity shop this afternoon. I'm taking Emily in with me as she needs to get used to new people (she has some fear aggression linked with people she doesn't know) so I'd best get a move on. Oh and I have a c&c order to pick up after shop, paid with my evouchers so only 1 cash to pay, all just normal shopping
