Hi DD  ((hugs)) for you and ((hugs)) for your friend.  Glad he's getting through it - I know someone in the same state at the moment - showing that you care is the important thing.

Lyn ((hugs)) for you too and for your dad.

Hosta ((hugs)) glad the tests were ok. 

Anyone else want any ((hugs)) ?  Form an orderly queue

It's usually just the blossom buds they go for - they're sweet with nectar and a 'high energy' food.  They know what's good for them

Edd - are you really taking some of your OH's Metformin???!!!  If so then forgive me for saying so, but you're being a complete idiot - it's a dangerous drug and shouldn't be taken without prescription or being monitored.  It can make you very ill indeed.  Why on earth are you taking it?  If you think you're ill then see your GP.  Don't self-prescribe.  It's not some sort of dietary supplement!!!

And your OH should be taking the amount prescribed for her!!!  Not giving some of it to you!!!

You have a partner and child who rely on you - for goodness sake be sensible!!!

Hello folks   It's been a lovely day - photos on the Snowdrop Walk thread.

Hope your father's feeling a bit fitter very soon Lyn ((hugs))

Hosta, OH always finds that sugar in the evenings keeps him awake at night.  I'm so lucky, I almost always fall asleep within a few minutes of my head touching the pillow - I hate it when I don't  (usually due to worrying about stuff ).

Now I'd better see if I can find out what's been going on here today, before I fall asleep on the sofa

Has anyone ever won?
