Got results of my cholesterol today on the non fasting test I had done after 2 months packed in and it's come down from 6.2 to 5.9, I know that's not great but I'm well chuffed as it's a start :D

Reply

No that's really good.... it's come down, A MASSIVE WHOOHOO to you, am really chuffed for you fresher :D :D :D

Thanks Droopy :D :D

Oooooh it was 6.3 not 6.2 lol..

Well that's just fandabidosier then :D

I think that's great. I hadn't realised smoking affects cholesterol, and Dr muttered about statins last time, but I don't want them if it can be helped. So one more reason yo stay quit. Every bit of motivation helps.

Thanks Fresher

They had been mentioned to me before and really didn't want to go on them :D

Hiya Betts, yep it can make a massive difference.... this is why I stopped as I don't want to be on Statins forever... :D good luck with yours :D

Way to go then :)

And you know I am singing along to CDs in the car much better, so definitely improves the throat/voice (passengers may tend to differ mind :D )

Ooh Betts I've noticed that to, I can hold a note so much better now, kids in the car aren't overly impressed though :D

Reply

Takes a seasoned ear to appreciate the seasoned voice.

Oh, and did I mention I'm going a bit deaf?

Wonder if that'll be helped to :)

My heart has just melted :)

I can't remember tbh. Oh I remember my hubby who was a compressor engineer went to fix the mobile squash court. It worked a bit like a hover craft and to move it around it was raised on a cushion of air (cos it was all made out of glass so was heavy), can't remember what was wrong with it but I remember him going fixing it.

Reply

Clever stuff! The mind boggles!

Reply

yeah, it was made out of glass so spectators could watch the game from all sides of the court. Aww bet you were proud of your daughter.

Reply

Sure was :)

Brilliant design for those courts!

Will be dreaming of floating glass squash courts and Yorkshire puds tonight :D

Reply

OMG it was 2002. twelve years, no wonder I don't really remember much about it.

Reply

Goes tooootoooo quick, doesn't it?

Reply

I know. My daughter would have been 16 then. Just been babysitting tonight while she went to the school my grandson will be starting in September. Ooooh time goes far too quickly. Last time the world cup was on he was a little baby.

Reply

So lucky to have a grandchild. Maybe one day ......

Reply

Haha just replied to Betts same thing, Knaresborough in Yorkshire for a kid free weekend :D

Reply

Fresher you took the words outta my mouth.... except maybe while I'm away monky could do my painting :)

Reply

You deserve a good hol, great stuff :)

Reply

Awww, thats just great news Fresher Ali :) :) :)

Reply

No I've only done the glossing...... really need to get the walls done now but no doubt I 'll end up doing it Friday night and Saturday morning in between cooking.... :(

Reply

Droopy, your supposed to paint the emulsion on the walls and ceiling before you paint the gloss :o :D :D

Thats why I thought you had finished it !! :) :)

Reply

He's right you know - although I didn't like to mention it! :D :D :D xxx

Reply

WHAT WHAT WHAT are you two talking about..... I always gloss first then do the walls as you can wipe off emulsion from gloss but you need to use white spirit to remove gloss and it leaves a stain on the paint .....????? :)

Reply

It's a good point well said! I do agree with you droppy - I was only repeating what I'd been told before - apparently the gloss is like the finishing touch!

I think Spain seem to be losing the plot! To think they won this the last time! :) :) XX

Reply

MMMM think I might change my name to Droppy :D Spain is going home unless a blooming miracle happens ;(

Reply

Monky, you are on your jollies this week - go and do droppy's painting for her there's a good lad :) xx

Reply

OK, if I must hmmmm, by the time I get down there to her, she will have done it :o :| xx
