Don't be scaredy cat.....

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.

Of course you can change your name, Gertie. So long as it isn't a name that another forum member already has.
