    Bear sick = very; A bear is large and sick means almost the opposite of usual; Peng in this context = winsome ( in other contexts it means substance used in Jamaican Woodbines); 6 no trumps is the top bid in bridge.
    Overall, it means you rock

    Getting ready today for the trick and treaters tonight, all healthy stuff for the treats, and a dousing with hose for the trickers.
    I watched a Bob Marley docco the day and he liked his ganja as well...

    Thank you so much I will give this a go, it sounds good. I’ve made a couple of low carb bread recipes but you are right they are more like a cake, I think the trick is to spread thickly with butter. I love pumpkin seeds in bread though so this is worth trying.
    On my recent holiday I relaxed my eating a little bit and indulged in bread, there was an amazing one served in the dinning room as part of the bread basket, very dark in colour with some seeds and little bits of raisins, OMG it was delicious, thankfully there was only ever 1 slice in the basket hehe

    Bread is my biggest temptation, I always enjoyed lovely fresh bread but now that it’s really off limits I realise how much I loved it. I can quite easily say no to cake or chips but bread is a massive temptation still.
