    After today’s lunch out I have to admit to not being hungry but more peckish.
    An omelette seemed the best bet. Usually have a cheese omelette but decided to try something different...... a corn beef omelette wasn’t as bad as I was expecting.
    Bolused for the protein, not exactly a carby meal. May have to give myself a warning:) for not posting on topic.

    In the absence of buses home whilst an accident was being cleared and the absence of any enthusiasm to cook anything when i got home, the Supermarket Cafe provided cheese and mushroom omelette and chips. 50g carbs was the conservative estimate in case I really ended up walking the 3 miles home. With the shopping and the half a repeat prescription.

    I think I over estimated. Or my insulin sensitivity is good right now. Just about to have a few more carbs before bed.

    Full English out this morning. Egg, bacon, sausages, beans, mushrooms, potato slices, toast and fried bread.
    Small piece malt loaf with a coffee mid afternoon.
    Just back from an hours walk which bypasses a local chippy. A tray of chips with plenty of salt and vinegar was not to be missed.

    Back in the UK now and the suitcases unpacked. On the outward journey the missus had filled 1 case with British foodstuff (fairly typical filipina behaviour it seems) and used the case to bring Pinoy brands back.

    So had cake for breakfast today (well it needs to be eaten before it goes stale, right?). Have missed spicy food so we have a home made curry (with rice) for supper so let's see if I get the bolus correct.

    Blood sugars a little high at the moment but back to work tomorrow with the boring diet.

    Evening lovely people.
    A work day albeit a quiet one.
    Granola & yogurt.
    1 tuna & tomato chutney sandwich on brown bread.
    Banana ( post gym )
    At this point I arrived home and asked my wonderful OH what dinner was ?
    “ It’s a surprise “ she replied.
    “Carbs ? “ I enquired
    “Yes “ came the reply.
    At this point I just pre bolused 8 units.
    Dinner was......yesterday’s left over pork, rice, condensed chicken soup, peas, carrots and onions all baked in the oven. I was surprised to say the least. Nonetheless is was delicious but did require a further 6 units.
    Finished off with a pudding.....an apple.;)
