    Mmm, first day of Metformin and up at 7.5, was around 5.6 this morning. Had a Starbucks flat white, hadn't realised 10g of carbs in this - that was 2 hours ago so will see what happens now. Eggs for breakfast so no issue there.

    Good morning Johnny, I'm sorry that you felt so bad today. It was good that you had Lee with you when it happened, are you feeling a bit better now?

    I had to Google it afterwards, and there are apparently two possible options. One is the one you've mentioned, Sable Jan - referring to a dog or cat's dander (dandruff), which would be raised if their hackles were up. The other refers to the name for the froth on the top of alcohol as it brews and could be used in the same way as "to get in a stew" or to "boil with rage".
    Take yer pick!
    :)

    Good Morning, @13lizanne. I'm feeling much better now, but still missing my little Amlodipine 10 mg anti-hypertensive tablet. Lee's done a stellar job of cleaning my kitchen and is returning to complete the work later. It looks much better and more clutter-free. I feel very happy indeed. He also purchased me a sausage ciabatta from a local cafeteria. It cost £2.80 and I reimbursed him £3.00 and he gave me 20 pence change.

    Hello again Johnny, I'm glad that you are feeling better now, it must have been horrible to feel that things were not under your control. Try to forget about your missing tablet, you have a lovely clean and tidy kitchen now and so that's something to be pleased about. Have a good afternoon @autisticwonder1970

    Well done. I'm still only a diet controlled Diabetic and looking to do the same.
    I have a slightly chaotic life style, but have done myself a favour of putting myself first, something I have never done before.
    I'm also begining to see and feel the health benefits and spend less time in a alcohol induced self loathing, just to go back to work on a Monday.
    Also I have started to monitor my sleeping habits and take a herbal night time tea to help me switch off and improve my sleeping.

    I have given up using the lift at work and use the stairs for all journeys around the 7 floors of the office.

    Next is a new bike and to carry on with my low carb paleo diet.
    Fingers crossed I shall be saying the same thing in a few months.

    Hi @Deff Jeff may I just say "well done" on what you have achieved so far? Excellent in every department, as a boss of mine once said ( but not to me:) )

    Forgot to do mine (I think) but back to usual muesli for breakfast...always weighed...I do not trust myself to pour it out and guage it by eye alone.....so whatever it was, it was.....didn't test before dinner either as I just had fritatta with lettuce and I know that's ok. My testing fingers will be thankful for the rest :)

    Salmon, potatoes and peas for us. Use those fish bags and put dots of butter on fish. Spuds will be loaded with butter too
    Had I remembered to take steak out of freeze last night ours would've been casserole too
