Good luck to Mr and Mrs Chicky and Wonky.

Internet disappeared after breakfast not to be seen again until this afternoon so I went to see Son 2, the dentist (but he was off work, baby sitting) and 2 baby grandsons. We went and looked round the market. Normally I avoid market day in Périgueux, especially before Christmas, nowhere to park and masses of traffic. It was like that today, but lovely to see son and grandsons. Took over an hour to get home instead of 25 mins.

Didn't know it was called that, Jo. So I looked it up and so it is! The site I saw said "All parts of the plant are poisonous, causing violent vomiting and delirium." Like it even less now! Sorry.

Thought of something I hate as Jo posted a pic on a current thread. It's Helleborus foetidus - find it really ugly.

I really don't like that Hellebore above, I find it really ugly. When there was a thread about plants you don't like recently I forgot about that one. I dug mine up.

Morning all. I remember Liquafruita.I like Benelyn but you can't buy it in France. French cough syrups taste disgusting and aren't usually even syrupy or soothing.

I've lost 5lbs in the last 3 weeks, cut down on wine and am eating normally but carefully 5 days and very low calorie but lots of veg and salad on 2 days. Before when I've been on diets I've got hungry and I haven't lost much after the first week. Body compensates because of the diet. But with this one body doesn't seem to realise it's on a diet.

I had wondered, Edd. My first OH was manic depressive, but lovely in between. He died some years ago, not because of that though.

I can't access the BNF, it says it has detected that I'm in France so I can't see it.

Here is my last year's tree as I haven't done this year's yet and probably won't for another week or two. It always looks the same anyway as I use the same decorations.


Green flowers

I prefer my flowers to be other colours, there is enough green already with leaves and grass. I like green, but not on flowers.

I hope she will tell us, Pat.

Edd, Metformin should only be taken under strict supervision from a doctor. It can have side effects. Some people develop a serious condition called lactic acidosis while taking metformin. I was a nurse. Listen to punkdoc.
