I too had a good review from my 6 months diabetic tests. Same as Bob, told my weight was over what it should be. I explained that the charts show what weight you should be for a given height. I told the nurse that I wasn't actually over weight, just under tall.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Not sure my dragon of a diabetic clinic nurse would react too well if I said that to her.
She said she expected me to lose 10 lbs by my next visit under threat of some undisclosed painful retribution. I think I will need to find some effective anaesthetic before I go next time.

Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

Splendid response, @Malc !

I shall try that on next time but I fear that 'Nursie' may suggest something similar to what @austinbob has been threatened told.

They're not allowed to amputate anything  :-X without your Grandma's written OK, are they?  :worried:

I finished my night shift and slept for six hours straight.  Simple I know, but it made me happy when I finally awoke  :)

Picked up (among other things) at a local railway exhibition a brace of Railway Modellers from 5~6 years ago (but in new conditon) for a song, one of which contains a special supplement on "Buckingham Central", which I keep hearing about but have rarely seen much detail on.

What was the song? was it something by Elvis?

I just choose something vaguely remembered from the latest karaoke night, and sing it until they give me what I want.

I take it you mean Buckingham Grand Central' by Rev. Peter Denny. One of the great pioneering EM layouts. Funny enough, I was reading tha modeller today. If you can get hold of any of the RM's of the fifties/sixties with Peter's articles they are worth a look.
