Ditto here Mab. BIL had dreadful trouble with his feet and lost 9 toes. A good lesson for me, although I have no dramas with mine.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

From what I’ve seen and heard, it’s mainly men who have amputations. I drive past a rehab hospital a lot and there’s always one or two sitting out the front smoking!  Men don’t seem to take diabetes seriously and if they don’t have a good woman to keep them in line a lot of them have problems.

Have just had a very long session with TMX consultant.  Very patient lady.
There are 3 ways in which you can put your recipes on the Cookidoo program.
1 type your recipe and attach photo.
2 change similar recipe on Cookidoo
3change a recipe from Cookbook or TMX community
The recipes are private. No one has access to them.  This is causing some criticism from people who sell their TMX recipes and goodies.
But what I really like is that I can do all the work on the my iPad and it transfers it to the TMX. Via Cookidoo

The photos are a bit too large K Atie, are you able to reduce the size please?

Waiting for a coffee delivery from Melbourne. We get 6 x 1K bags every 6 months. We have great fun deciding on flavours.  Most will be single origin, a couple blended. Just for fun we did the sums. This is the best coffee you can buy. 1 shot of coffee is 50 cents , plus milk 60 cents for latte. Our favourite at the moment is from Peru.

I had my hair cut this morning, then a friend is bringing in some sewing this afternoon.  I really don't need it just at the moment as I am busy making scrub tops for DIL & GD
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

You’re too kind Margaret.

K Atie this is a post I did for Chookie a while back, she was able to follow it and post pictures the correct size so I hope you can follow the instructions too. You will have to clear your current photo attachments before you start this process. When you click on Attachment and other options you’ll see the words (Clear Attachment) in blue, click on all those attachments. If you are unable to do this I can perhaps do it for you.

This is my post to Chookie.

‘I’ll run you through what I do Chookie. These instructions are for the iPad for anyone else wanting to know how to add photos to their posts.

Start off making a comment or posting a recipe.
Just below the box you’ve typed in, click on Attachments and other options.
Scroll down to Choose File, click on that. 3 options will come up, click on Photo Library.
Choose the photo you want, it will then tell you the actual size of the photo chosen. This can be too big for the forum so I click on that wording (it’s white printing on a black box) then I choose Medium.
On the RHS up the top of this box you’re in is the word ‘Use’, click on that.
You will now see the attachment in the ‘Choose File’ box.
Click on ‘Post’ in the bottom hand corner.

I hope this becomes clear to you as you go through each stage. The photo will appear on the same post as your recipe or comment.’

Sorry Judy I tried many times but the size never came up as soon as I loaded the photo it went straight into the file , no option there to fix the size up . I’ll just remove the picture if I cannot reduce the size .

OK just do that then K Atie, oversized photos play havoc with the page.

I’m ever so delighted with Judy’s clear instructions  for the photo posting instructions. However I understand your frustration, KAtie . When the TMX consultant was trying to demonstrate how to attach a photo to a recipe on Cookidoo it wouldn’t  cooperate.

I popped up to the Westfield this morning. I tried on a few tops to wear to our Christmas lunch for the car club. I couldn’t find anything better than what I already have.
DD gets the keys to her house this afternoon. She is very blaise about it.

Just tried to get into Cookidoo and it will not let me in , frustrating but will try another day !! Hope it will work .
Awoken to four young men at our front door this am , putting in hot water service with a heating pump ... free oh deer my DH thinks this is great time will tell . The the wool man called in . Kittens have been super hungry all day .. got more fresh kangaroo meat at pet shop . DD dropped off to travel with a friend for girls weekend!! Collected DS , so confident driving home today . Home to unpack shopping, cook dinner for us and the wind rower . Boys out with the drone to film the wind rowing happening . Kittens getting stronger , hope you all got to see them .
