    @Patricia21
    There's a whole scone thread here on the forum - I have my strawberries and cream with shortcake though.

    Erythritol is a natural sweetener and is the one that seems, with stevia, to be best recommended for diabetics, as it's low carb, very low calories, and is good for baking, and generally doesn't cause any runny bums. I get mine from Amazon and use both a "brown sugar" version for baking, and an "icing sugar" one for sweetening cream and fruit if required. it's pricey though.

    I assume jam's OK if you are on insulin, but it's killer sugar for many type 2s trying to manage just with diet or pills.:(:( But at least the cream, clotted or otherwise, goes down a treat...

    And please stop it, you're making me hungry now.... I feel another scream coming on!

    I know I have always said I sympathise with type 2's because it's actually harder for them to control blood sugar.

    I'm not actually going to have a scone, just a virtual one for now :)

    Yes it always appears odd to me that those who are the worst off insulin wise have the means for better control than those who otherwise have less serious issues. I used to feel slightly envious, but having learned more about living with type 1 I wouldn't choose to swap places for all the cream and strawberry scones in Devon & Cornwall! :p

    Yeah we have Jan but fingers crossed and everything else without tempting fate, I think we have found someone to do the job. He came and had a look on Saturday and phoned last night and said he was doing quote and wanted to clarify a couple of things then email it to us. Quote should be in hubby's inbox now. Even better, he said he can do the leaky shower tray this week but do the toilet another time as that's more of a complex and longer job. Now its a case of emailing Tesco the quote and getting the ok from them to go ahead and get it done so they can pay for it
