I think that a tendency to high cholesterol is inherited. One of my daughters has a slight problem, 1st OH had high cholesterol, yet she is skinny as a rake. I am lucky in that I have always had a low blood pressure and pulse, but I have to admit that now I've lost over a stone and gone from size 16 back to 14 I feel much better and more comfortable. Mustn't eat loads of anything, but a decent helping of veg can stop you feeling hungry.

Difficult when you have a broken foot, a thyroid problem and a gammy knee, not fair.

Morning all.

Glad Wonky's cold is getting better, so is mine. Thank you, Joyce.

I don't grow garlic, only use a small amount as it seems to upset my tummy. Same with daughter 2.

We are off to Norfolk on Tuesday. Must do Housesitter's room and clean the house a bit. Don't want him thinking I'm a total slob!

It was -4°, frost, yesterday but today it was +2° at 8am and it's sunny. I must sweep up leaves on the kitchen terrace, done it twice already but the lime tree is now bare.

Morning all.

Have a lovely birthday and a happy day with your family tomorrow, Lily P.

I've been trying to co-ordinate a couple of Anglican Carol Services we are having in Dordogne in December. Readings, decorations, organist, service booklets (going to the printers tomorrow), refreshments etc.

Morning all.
Sunny, -3°, frost. Still much frostier here than at Obelixx's house, but she is nearer the sea.

My place is already bought in the village cemetery next to first OH. He wanted to be buried and he wanted me next to him. OH wants to be cremated and he wants his ashes in a lake where his first wife is which he bought from the Woodland Trust for that use. What a gloomy subject, can we talk about something more cheerful?

That's going to be a lovely pond. Will you have waterlilies?

Hello, yes home safe, thanks. Long drive, took it slowly. Quiet evening with OH, thought I'd leave posting until tomorrow. But now I'm here (popped in before bed) I'll read back.

Morning all.

Just taken the granddaughters to school.

I was fine on Friday when I arrived at son's. Now I'm all bunged up with a cold. About to face the long drive back. At least it's not raining.

The granddaughters were invited to a birthday party this afternoon. I went too. Seemed the other parents were staying so I did. Really nice people mostly French of course, but there was a Finnish lady who spoke English and the grandmother and her sister who had come to stay were English. The children played, parents talked and cake was eaten.

Weather went back to being rubbish.

Was it people who took them? Here it would probably be more likely to be an animal.

Granddaughter's have had a sleep, so has son. I've had a chat with OH on the phone. Rain has stopped and there is a glimpse of sunshine.

Glad that Dove's OH wasn't hurt. Good that the owners took the takings. Do they live nearby? I'm a bit surprised they are still at home.

Thanks Pat. Not that awful, just tired and below par.

Been reading the posts to punk on the previous page, good advice. I know if it were my OH I would be stressed and if work has been stressful too then punk's OH may feel she can't offload onto him because he's unwell.

I remember Fairy telling us about the young lad too, so sad.

Morning all. Sleep well Pat and Chicky. Well, if Chicky can - for excitement and change of time!

I had a terrible night, wind and rain beating on the Velux and a blocked up nose. Now I have a cold. DIL had a bad night too, she's gone back to bed. Baby woke several times. 2 Little GDs are being very noisy this morning, one happy, one grumpy. Hope the wind goes by tomorrow when I drive home.
