    Roast lamb, potatoes and veggies. Oh and mint sauce of course.
    BG in a good place before and after, seems the pre bolus was just about spot on.

    Always find gammon a bit salty. Are you an egg or pineapple type of girl?:)

    Haha great! I managed 5s all day for once thanks to sticking to low carb meals for a full day time for a gin and tonic to celebrate! Slime line of course ...

    I would normally go for a nice egg, but not tonight, I had homemade coleslaw, mushrooms, salad and some home made oven chips. I don't eat lamb, but the gammon wasn't salty and tasted nice, from Morrisons.

    Gammon and egg, homemade coleslaw, home made oven chips and Morrisons. Are you sure you're not my wife?
    Spooky but my wife often eats the above dinner AND we shop at Morrisons.:)

    Bbq with spice coated haddock, red pepper and courgette ... a perfect Sunday tea.
    I don’t think any of it came from Morrison’s but can’t be sure.

    Fake vegan chicken with peri-peri sauce and mashed swede with goats butter. 5.1 before dinner, no insulin, 5.3 two hours after. I count that as a win having been stuck in the 8s all bl**dy day. Didn’t get into my 4-7 range until four this afternoon :banghead:

    Halfway through shunting my Tresiba from 8am via 2pm today to 8pm tomorrow in an attempt to counter raging DP and a late afternoon slump - I figured they’re 12 hours apart so maybe moving my dose my 12 hours mich help. So don’t know if that’s caused the high, or if it’s the heat, or the steroid inhaler from last week’s asthma diagnosis. Too many variables, so we shall see how the next few days go.

    Let's not start on supermarket etiquette here. We can't all afford Fortnum and Masons ;););)

    Nope. I find being one of a pair of tattooed, rufty-tufty bikers tends to stop that happening ;)

    Unfortunately ( or fortunately) I am not a wife lol. Morrison's is about 2 minutes away from me and as I don't drive, it's very handy. I think I like your wife :)
