    Few biscoffs with a cup of tea this morning and half a nature valley bar 27g.

    Lunch is a sausage roll (53g) and a packet of XL cheese crisps (17g). Stir fry this evening to get some vegetables in. :happy:

    Car MOT today, apologies @porl69 didn’t book it with you.:).
    A bus trip into town was the order of the day.
    A full English at our most favourite eatery has made it a perfect Friday.
    A latte later and an apple recently is it so far for today.
    May go for soup later.

    Car passed its MOT.;)

    Using a storm bound day at home to experiment... overnight and morning basal test done and all good.

    Now checking what I suspect to be the new evening carbs ratio of a lazy day on 70gs worth including toast, a couple of GF ginger biscuits, and a couple of scoops of ice cream.

    I've just eaten a bag of sour watermelon sweeties :D I was hypo but may have accidentally finished the bag.
    Breakfast was bran flakes with some sultanas added and soya milk, lunch was some marinated butter beans, a cinnamon swirl pastry and 2 digestives, tea is fish and chips from the freezer with some peas and ketchup. I've got out of the habit of eating fruit and veg and I can't seem to get back in the habit :(
