    Sure makes me jealous Marie 2. @sportyboston I’m in CQ as well mate. The family and I have just spent the last two weeks over in the NT checking out Alice and Ayers Rock. I thought I knew hot till we went over there. 42.6 in the shade was the best reading I found. 9% humidity, 4% in Camooweal. Got home to 94% humidity at home and can’t stand it!

    @Justin04 Yea, but if you don’t like humidity, you wouldn’t like it where I’m at? We vary probably most of the time between 80-90%. But we do have beaches!

    7 degrees here. Brilliant sunshine not a cloud in the sky.
    Just chatted with someone who lives 10 miles down the road and he had to scrape the windscreen on his van this morning.
    All in all a lovely autumn morning.
    Good luck @Kim Possible and safe journeys.

    @sportyboston I don't think we've had a completely dry 24hr spell at all in October, yes this morning was a lovely bright autumn morning, but chances of heavy showers later and highs of 14 - but this morning the grass had a 'crunch' to it.

    Can't believe it but we've sorted our family Christmas get together already and for once it was simple, EVERYONE can make the first date mentioned - that doesn't happen on my watch, and yeap it isn't my watch :sour: but my sisters. She now has to plan the dog walk route, theres plenty of options and as it is more local to me I suspect she'll 'delegate' that bit to me. Usually it takes at least 3 dates and then someone still can't make it. :happy:

    BGs holding fairly steady.

    G’day, Good Morning, Greetings, Hiya. I’ve been away from the forum for a day or two doing ceramic stuff, discovering how to run a MiaoMiao, etc etc and come back now I can stop running to stay in place to see that multiple welcomes are needed. Welcome!
    I’m loving the MiaoMiao, but having to resist over correcting with repeated alarms. It helps that the current sensor’s more or less in line with bloods when in range.
    Nice and sunny here, has been about 12 - 14 C, and not excessively wet, but that’s the sarf east. We have droughts when the west has floods.
    Green tomatoes here too, so put them in the oven with the red ones and roasted the lot. The green ones had a lovely slightly sour flavour.
    Missing Knikki too, just mentioning him generates a desire to eat cake.

    I’m going to bake shortbread in his honour. Be rude not to.

    I need to set a timer to limit my farting around on the Internet when I supposed to be revising. Just waiting for an amazon delivery before I disappear upstairs with my laminator to encapsulate my exam criteria for next week’s horror.

    Bloods ok - felt a little low, so did a quick check (CGM read 6) but was at 5.4 - maybe it’s too much caffeine. Hmmm.

    Shortcake a great idea! I’m thinking about an apple cake in his honour before the birds eat the lot. Not quite Knikki style but can always decorate it with a Jaffa cake or two, or three, or a whole packet.

    I think doing things in Knikki's honour is an excellent idea. I'm going to make my lunch in his honour, we must remember him. :angelic::angelic::angelic::angelic::angelic:

    Good luck @Kim Possible
    Thursday is date day in our house and we had planned a trip to cinema this morning. But on seeing the lovely weather decided on a 5 mile circular walk instead. It goes across fields from our house and takes in the local park. Three hours with a 15min break for coffee and Tiffin for the husband. Had a mini packet of raisins en route and sugar levels at the end the same as the beginning a nice 5. A win win!

    Just sprayed coffee all over my iPad... :hilarious::rolleyes:

    Keto shortbread a semi-success. Fell apart a bit, because I tried to de-mould it too soon. Which meant I had lots of broken ones to “sample” :D Have glued some together with super-dark chocklit.
