    Would that be a part of your fasting cholesterol test? I'll be home in a few weeks and need to set up appointments now - it takes so long to get one unless you've got bits that are dropping off...

    Sounds perfect - and how lucky you had something good to eat with you... especially in the cold... a lesson for us all not to go out without something in reserve I think... I usually have a squashed, horrible-looking BabyBel in my handbag somewhere, and some black chocolate... They say T2's don't get hypos, especially if they're not on meds, but it's not true - I do... I hit the skids early in the morning in Wales, at the Passport Office on Christmas Eve... I was such a mess... something was going wrong and the anxiety pushed it over the edge I think... The staff there, dressed in reindeer antlers and snowman outfits :), were so very, very kind to me - you would be staggered at the amount of people who know how to deal with a hypo because they have relatives or friends with diabetes... they ran around fetching me chocolate, 7-Up, biscuits and anything else they could find... it took me about 20 minutes to feel a bit better, then, very unusually for me, I burst into tears... :) Such kindness though... I will never, ever go to London again for my passport - which has to be renewed every couple of years - I will always go to Newport now...

    How odd... is it a hangover from the previous day maybe? Does that happen - sort of stored up?

    Thank you Jack... I often have high-ish numbers fasting - I will ask for liver-function and fasting cholesterol then... :)

    Aioli, for the person who asked, is garlic mayonnaise. It's amazing.

    Me today:

    B: 2 boiled eggs
    L: insides of 3 dim sims, and, in a break from the low carb norm, a portion of potato wedges with sour cream. I was out where there wasn't anything else to eat so thought I'd see if there was anything in this resistant starch business. Tested 2 hours afterwards and I was 6.7 so something about it was ok - maybe the big dollop of sour cream.
    D: 2 more dim sim insides, and chicken stir fry without rice/noodles.
    Snack: handful of nuts (almonds, cashews, pistachios).

    Don't know really but I started the day higher and the trend seemed to continue....as though my body was telling me I was keeping the higher level topped up. My pre's were higher too so not spiking, just generally running higher

    Today I tried @Trina_P's porridge and eggs recipe and it was delicious! I made sure I did some chores after breakfast and my BS rose by 1.5 and settled back to 5.5 after 3 hours, so I look forward to that again.
    However I may have to start counting carbs properly if I want to get my overall figures any lower so my groats (wholegrain oats) may be too many in one go, even though they don't spike me. My standard deviation is .9 according to my meter program which is comforting. If it isn't, don't tell me.
    L: sweet potato & onion soup. Revisiting old haunts -- I haven't tried sweet pot. since getting a meter. I went shopping straight after but alas, sure enough my BS was 7 after only an hour. So I sawed some firewood and then got a reading of 4.9! Time to reach for the peanut butter.
    D: will be beef stew with mushrooms and steamed veg, all of the sensible kind. I'm still using buckwheat flour for thickening although it's a bit carby and some interesting alternatives have been suggested on here, like xanthan gum, which I'll follow up.
    *edit* No spike with dinner ... in the 5's before and after :)
