My DIL is also a type 1 diabetic and sleeps through the night. She has an insulin pump and the same sort of arm monitors thingies as Theresa May uses, so maybe that is the difference.

Just spent three hours clearing ivy from the garden. You can't see the difference

Probably not as my wife is also on a pump (her 3rd/4th) but with that one she can only use a more invasive blood sugar monitor and she doesn't get supplied with enough for continuous use (they cost £50 each and last for about 4-5 days!). Anyway, she has had the condition for over 65 yrs and it has reached the stage where she gets very sharp and unpredictable swings in blood sugar levels, even though she controls and monitors her carbohydrate intake very carefully.

NCD must vary between insurance companies. Some only go to 5 or 6 and that is all they put on the renewal notice and is all the proof you will have. So only give that figure when asking for quotes next year or later.

All quiet tonight. Is this the calm before the storm?

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

Well it's good to know there's life out there somewhere. Good evening Gwyn.

There's life where there shouldn't be, too. My daughter has just borrowed a couple of mouse traps.

A few years ago we had mice in the loft and irritatingly I could hear them scuttling around in the floor above the lounge. As the wall cavities had been filled I guessed the only ways they got there was via a shrub brushing a bay roof, or under the garage door. The door was changed, the shrub trimmed and for good measure a gizmo from tíinternet which plugs into a socket and (allegedly) causes a high pitched noise from the wiring which mice donít like. Fingers well crossed it has been ok since and no harm done to our furry friends. Probably like Thurberís fellow who threw balls of paper at the windows every night to keep elephants at bay - it appeared to work so why stop?

Having had four cats (none ATM), the "problem" can be that they ALSO catch and then bring other "things" indoors, like:
- rats (ours' didn't - but next door's did)
- 3rd cat dragged a fully-grown blackbird in alive and then it crawled under a big armchair and died - only found out many months later after a plague of large blowflies and then, sometime later still, when I moved the chair and found the "husk" of its body.
- same one dragged a terrified live PIGEON through 2 catflaps and into the living room, where I had the devil of a job catching it in order to put it back outside - not that I'm a "sky rat" fan, but it was that or having to face SWMBO for not getting rid of it PDQ!

And not just indoors. My wife and I were eating outdoors at a cafe along with many other people. A cat arrived with a live mouse in mouth. It walked round until everyone was looking at it. Then it put the head of the mouse in its mouth and closed its jaws... tightly.

Strange that a big cat with an antelope in its mouth is OK for a prime time TV documentary but a small cat doing it live puts you off your lunch.
