      Thank you I’m going go buy one tomorrow I’ve missed chips and mash thanks for that. And that’s a good idea I will freeze some I’m looking forward to them with steak and salad. Will they go with gammon and eggs. And can you make a soup with it with oxo stock cubes say with gammon and leaks and veg xx

      It does have a different texture to potatoes but I enjoy. I use a lot in soups and casseroles and curries as it adds thickness and hasn’t got an overwhelming flavour so takes flavour of the stock or curry etc. It goes brown quickly when peeled so whack into freezer as soon as you chop it!

    My first libre 2 just keeps telling me to wait another hour to activate it when I scan it with my phone. Am I doing something wrong?

    Hey! how can I write a Private Message to someone here?

    And is there a way you can send me the form for surveys please?

    Thanks a lottt!

    p.s. do you go by Ant? Or is that just a username (for next time we talk:))

      Hi @MariaTebas2021 ,
      I'll send you a PM with the form. :)

      I'm called Antje, although some do call me Ant. Which is funny, because my aunt is called Myra, Mier for short. A mier is an ant in my language, so with our shortened names we're both a small 6-legged creature!
