Re: feeling determined!

It's VERY windy here tonight in Nottinghamshire. I am pondering whether to go on my evening bike ride, or just a 4 mile walk. Probably the latter. Do you know, Tweetypie, on my way to my appointment this morning, during a horrendous storm which left two people dead here, I was frightened trying to ...

Re: feeling determined!

Doc is extremely pleased with me! She said that compared to about eight-ten years ago, I'm doing fantastic. I'm between 58 and 59kg (about 9st 3lbs). My cholesterol is excellent in that the level of "good" cholesterol is high, and the "bad" cholesterol is extremely low. And my blood pressure is 110/...

Re: Threesomes!

I never had a mother in law. My husband was 64 when we married. His parents had both died in their 60s, both of cancer. And he was an only child, so I had no in laws at all, apart from stepsons and daughters in law! He was a widower with eight adult children when we married.

Re: feeling determined!

Oh, my (female) gp is brilliant. She can come across as a bit brusque, but it's often a pain going to her because she gives each patient whatever time she feels they need, rather than their allotted time slot! So, the further into the day, the further behind she gets! I have on occasion been waiting...

Re: Threesomes!

Well far be it for me to be Drinkist because I love tea aswell. Tea, coffee, chocolate - all good. But I do find all those herbal concoctions pretty foul but appreciate that some folk enjoy them . . That would be me! I don't drink "normal" tea. At a pinch, I enjoy Redbush tea with a little milk, bu...

Re: feeling determined!

Looking like I won't be out again this week. Tomorrow I'm babysitting (and there's Storm Helene due tonight/tomorrow morning anyway), Wednesday, I have a doctor's appointment, Thursday I'm working, and Friday mum has her cataract surgery! Time does really fly by, doesn't it?! Rather bizarrely, in wo...

Re: feeling determined!

Well done :-)17 I think 40 minutes is great and not to be sniffed at. It took me a few times to become steady. I have a basket on the front which I think hinders me, but it's useful for carrying stolen blackberries, apples and dare I say, potatoes from the edge of the field. :oops: It's great fun r...

Re: feeling determined!

Yay! Go, me! :-)08 :-)08 :mrgreen: Absolutely fabulous day here today, so, I took myself (with, I admit, some dithering and had to give myself a good talking to!) off to the Greenway with my bike, and had a lovely, leisurely cycle! I didn't go far, just did about 40 minutes. I figured that would be ...

Re: Threesomes!

As to the eggs all being in the same box, I have caught a hen, collecting eggs from a neighbouring nest box and shuffling them along and into her's! She wasn't broody either. Just liked to pretend that she'd laid them all, I think! :mrgreen:

Re: Threesomes!

I had that. Eventually, I just blocked off the spare henhouse, so they can't get in there! And yes, there are three nest boxes in the henhouse, but I too have seen hens all squeezed into the same one! Two on the bottom, and one sitting on top of them! It's like none of them will give in to be the on...
