    Caveat - I went to Badminton Horse Trials yesterday, was out from 7.15 in the morning till 21.30 last night and visited a relative who lives nearby.
    6.45 - pre brekkie - 2 thins with crunchy peanut butter
    9.00 - b/fast - fried egg, bacon, sausages, baked beans and 1 slice of toast
    11.45 - tub of ice cream ( only 1 scoop but cost £3.00 so that was only one all day!!!)
    13.30 - ham sandwich with seeded bread, chocolate covered oatcake and some sugar free squash
    16.15 - afternoon tea with scone, jam and cream
    18.00 - dinner - chicken breast wrapped in bacon, peas, broccoli, cauliflower cheese, new pots and 1 roasted pot followed by small slice of b/current cheesecake with 1 glass of rose wine
    22.00 coffee and bed.
    In case you're wondering my BS at 21.45 last night was 6.2 and it was 5.9 this morning so I think I got away with it!!
