    Flippin' 'eck it's cold out there today!!

    Breakfast: Bacon and eggs

    Lunch: bit of cheese (every time I type this I'm reminded of Wallace and Gromit)

    Dinner: Due to Mr. C's shifts we are having Sunday dinner today
    Roast beef, cauliflower, sprouts, a couple of chantenay carrots, gravy and, probably, a Yorkshire Pudding if my carbs allow

    Drinks: Morning: black decaff coffee, Afternoon: still spring water, Dinner and evening: glass or two (maybe even three) of red wine - although I tend to fall asleep towards the end of the second glass.

    Snap. When you end up wrapped around the front of an EU juggernaut it makes you more than a bit wary. I used to do around 35,000 miles a year and thought nothing of driving from Aberdeen to Bristol but now, like you, I prefer the train. If I have to gp on a motorway I want the middle lane between me and any lorries. If I can't I'll sit behind them. Getting my licence back was a flaming nightmare. I'm sure drunk drivers have it easier. The accident was nothing to do with me but because of the extent of my injuries I had to go through very stringent testing. Eye test, medical test, 2 hours in a simulator where among other things I had to do 35 emergency stops then out on the road first in a manual then an automatic. I was exhausted and my leg was going into spasms (not recommended with a clutch control ). It was another 3 months before I was finally cleared to drive as I was sent off for driving lessons to build my confidence again and get me over my fear of lorries.
    Again like you I have a railcard - disabled for me which is a bargain at £54 for 3 years and gives you a discount on your "carers" ticket as well as your own. There are loads of 1st class bargains to be had and I enjoy travelling in comfort.
    I'm happier now just travelling locally.

    Friends have and they said it's a bit too "feminist" for them (and that was women saying that). The huge inaccuracy was Mary and Elizabeth never met. Letters were exchanged and they were supposed to meet but it never happened. The reckoning was they've tried to make it a #metoo type movie and couldn't resist not having a climatic scene with two Hollywood actresses on set and to heck with the fact it didn't happen. Mary was a bit of a victim of circumstances.
    It's slightly more accurate than Braveheart since historically that was a load of mince (or tripe which is what I'm having tonight finally).

    Oddly I was remarkably calm and just focussed on controlling the car. The thought of serious injury never entered my mind. It was ages before I could drive again so it took a while for lorry shock to kick in.

    Hi all.

    Almost an OMAD day. Had to have a small snack - half a bag of pork crunch - about 90 minutes before dinner was due. Dinner was beef short rib followed by some extra thick Jersey cream. Large mug of tea coming up.

    @maglil55 and @Boo1979 those accidents sound horrific.

    B- blackberry chia pudding
    L- hebba pap porridge
    D - was meant to be salmon & salad, but as I was roadtesting my new cake mould it turned into lemon & blueberry cake with lactofree cream instead
    Snack - nothing as yet but I have a batch of baby quiches / savoury muffins in the oven at the mo ( some red onion, spinach & goats cheese ones, some mushroom & bacon ones and some pepper, spinach and feta ones) so one may have to be sampled
    So far 910 cals, 18g carbs, 26g fibre

    Bed 5.1 FBG 5.3. Unintentional OMAD. Boys were here this morning as DIL was doing deep tissue massage on niece next door. So feeding time at the home restaurant for them then out for shopping (No 1 came to assist mainly because he was after a small Lego set but he did assist). After dropping him off went to Lakeland to get more rotocaddies for my gradually well organised cupboards. Space is appearing and I'm resisting the temptation to overbuy until I've measured each cupboard and I'm sure what I need.
    B. Tassimo Americano grande with a dash of cream.
    L. Nothing - too busy feeding scotch broth to the boys.
    D. Will be my Italian trippa alla Romana.

    My Fitness Pal won't like me today.

    Breakfast: Tea - several pint mugs; cocoa @ 12.45
    Lunch: Late afternoon: Evening meal: Roast pork; spring greens; swede and celeriac mash; cauliflower and broccoli; sprouts, chestnuts and onions; gravy - eaten @ 15.50 - with 2 sons and 2.5 grandchildren planning a 90th birthday bash for next Jan
    Muscle problem now morphed into highly restrictive back problem; Naproxen and Codeine made me continually thirsty all day - really pleased this is a bungalow.

    @Boo1979 those quichelets sound fabulous. I am making 2 full size ones, one cheese and I dunno, the other crustless and cheese and maybe I dunno.
    @maglil55 be careful with your... lazy susans we call them: such a temptation for Nos 1&2
    Oh UGH @ianpspurs I’ll bet, though, that the injury is actually healing. It just sounds to me like “side issues” of referred-type pain are gone now?
    @Goonergal me too X-box! So I was trying to think of a cross between a first person shooter game and a Wii Fit program
    All foods sound mucho tasty! I went grocery shopping this morning and Forgot Avocados Forgot to even put them on list! Whatever shall I do?!
    Bfast 1/2 avocado, egg, decaf/soy/cream
    Lunch celery, leftover broccoli, almond butter off the spoon (bad idea), piece of my bread and some cream
    Supper is meant to be cheese crustless quiche and roasted green beans. Guess I’d better get on the ball here!
    ETA well the beans had gone bad so zucchini spirals to the rescue!
    Bought frozen cauli rice and zucchini spirals because I was HWS (hungry while shopping) and also am too lazy to make my own. Thinking of the spirals with some Costco pesto and cheese one day.

    Hello all,
    Didn't eat today until 5pm and had DD garam Masala chicken. Wasn't too bad but I added a chicken stock cude and could taste that rather than the spice (only put one teaspoon of Masala in as hubby doesn't like spicy). So only ate a few mouthfuls..
    Followed by sf jelly and double thick Jersey cream.
    I need to find a more tradition curry rather than Indian style.

    @AngiH I make my own curry mix with all kinds of weird stuff in it (like cocoa powder)..But Very Little cayenne At All. I can’t take anything above -10 on that hotness scale they use. You can throw in anything you want and get a very rich and spice-laden flavor with no heat at all! When I try that recipe I’ll just wing it as usual

    KCR - Kind of chiropractic manipulation and yes massage. She'll even stick needles in you having qualified in medical acupuncture last year as my son will testify - he was often the guinea pig during training.
