    Hubby’s just gone to work as well. At least there’s not too much traffic about at the moment!

    Morning all and Merry Christmas :)

    Stay well, keep hydrated and as chilled out as possible, and if it all get's too much take a walk. That's the advice I'll be sticking to over the next couple of days, as well as keeping a bottle of red handy for emergencies :singing:

    Good day to you all...!

    Just have a merry Diabetmas. :D

    I have no choice but to follow @Juicyj 's with the walks.. It's just another day for the dog.

    Oddly, I'm not a massive fan of dog walking whilst inebriated? It's like making your way back from the pub with an even drinker buddy?, :banghead: what with all the doggy double back routing... ;)

    yeap I'm at work, nothing on the roads yet, expect it will be busier later on.

    2.9 before the dog walk this morning........glucotabs to the rescue. Think it might have been the G&T last night that caused it, so I'm going to have to test the theory again tonight, and repeat until I get it 'sorted' :D.

    Hopefully finish work around lunchtime, then just got to get one more pressie for the wife 'from the daughter', pick up the starters for tomorrow (and prep them later), wrap the last few presents, then I think the wife wants to go to the church nativity/pub followed by home, fire, food, TV, bed. and somewhere in between I'll be prepping some of the food for the big day.

    A kilo of fine ground is a tenner in Makro! I’ve used a lot with Christmas baking, and as for the goat butter at two quid a go... let’s just say I’m glad it’s only once a year!

    Spaxton :)

    Morning teabags. A mild low (3.7) at 5am set the alarm off which was quite frankly rude. Two dextrose tabs and a half hour stop on the pod, and been around six ever since. Couldn’t get back to sleep though, so read for a bit.

    Is it too early to put some decorations up? Had a severe case of CBA this year. Might make some chocolate orange shortbreads today, the lemon ones were lovely and I can’t have my beloved chocolate oranges any more because even the dark one has ****ing milk in. Prawn curry for dinner tonight, intrepid teenager is making his own way back from his dad’s on the train later on. We usually have curry night on Christmas Eve while watching Muppet Christmas Carol (the definitive version imo) :)

    Not much food prep to do for tomorrow, we’re having salmon with a vast array of roasted veg, and mashed swede. Easy. I need to make some whisky butter of some sort for my Christmas cake, but that’s it. Might use butter, might use soft goat’s cheese - with finely ground erythritol.

    Only a photo would prove that.....;) hope you enjoyed Wedmore, the levels are fascinating. You were near Rodney Stoke which is a Thankful Village, particularly relevant this year (and it's a doubly thankful village). This is their village sign:

    We live and learn. Never heard of Thankful Villages. Thank you for posting something so thought provoking at this time of year.

    Have slightly fixed the Father Christmas disaster by dashing to a shop while child and father browsed electronic devices. Three small gifts and a mote indicating rest at home to reduce Rudolf's load.
    Numbers relatively good considering number of walks we have taken.

    Well done, Diakat. I'm sure you'll be able to turn it into a sort of win:win situation for MissDiakat. Maybe suggest Sanat wanted her to have something to look forward to when she gets back from her holidays, as she seems to have a lot of presenta already or something.

    I'd be looking for some sort of "How lucky are you ?!!" sort of tale. Not everyone gets pressies in two places fom Santa.

    She must have been a very good girl indeed.

    That's an excellent plan, but I think @Diakat should just smile mysteriously and say no one knows how Santa makes his decisions. Less likely to get caught out by too many questions that way.

    49 years ago today I was ambulanced to Musgrove Park Hospital Taunton, just to add to the West Country theme, with severe DKA after a honeymoon of no diagnosis - a nine month gestation period - and blessed insulin use was born. Life saving. Thank you Musgrove Park Consultant and nurses.
    My mother, sister and myself, when home from Uni, were living in North Curry.
    I love the West Country. My sister still lives in Somerset.
