    A day of carbs, and not. :D

    B: 1 small pancake (3 inches), bacon and scram egg. The other 3 pancakes migrated to Mr B’s plate, in return for bacon.
    L: cheeseboard and butter, with 1 of the 7(!!!) oakcakes that came with the platter. Followed by the most utterly fabulous low carb gluten free almond and clementine cake. Mr B ordered it from the look of it, not knowing it was LC or GF. I tasted it and ordred a slice for myself. Then MIL tasted it, and ordered one herself. Utterly gorgeous.
    D: lemon/lime chicken, with added butter.

    Viewings went well. Agent seems to think both may make offers but we shall see. Believing estate agents is a mugs game. Problem could be finding somewhere (realistic) I might want to live in Suffolk.

    Happy Birthday @ianpspurs! Like you said, all the best people have birthdays in June! For the avoidance of doubt, the hug was to commiserate sharing your birthday with Bojo! Autocorrect wanted to change that to Bono for some reason, but unsure if you find him a more desirable birthday twin.

    Yes I think sometimes people book house viewings as a recreational activity for a dull day - just to be nosey. Very disheartening at times.

    Day 3 of my holibobs

    Breakfast: my usual low carb coconut ‘porridge’ with strawberries and cream washed down with a black coffee.
    Lunch: cold chicken with pork scratchings, leafy salad and two cherry tomatoes followed by SF jelly, cream and LC chocolate granola.
    Mid afternoon: birthday cake carb killa bar and a takeaway Starbucks coconut cappuccino by the pool.
    Dinner at an Indian restaurant lamb bhuna with fried mushrooms and a random half tomato (!) followed by a CCB with cream back in our lodge

    Absolutely true, people really do view houses just for something to do. A few house moves ago I had a well to do old woman and her buddy show up one Sunday morning - they walked around the house and gardens commenting (mostly unfavourably) on everything, including stuff that wouldn't be included in a sale, then left - and the estate agent didn't ring me with any feedback. So I rang them and was told that it was the old dear's favourite Sunday hobby. I was furious.

    @Rachox I keep meaning to ask you, why just two cherry toms? Are you particularly sensitive to them?

    I’m not really sure to be honest! They aren’t particularly high carb but just taste very sweet to me. Maybe I should try more :joyful::hilarious:

    I eat four cherry toms as that is about the same size as a normal tomato roughly.

    0600 mug of tea with milk
    0730 same again
    0930 2 egg omelette with about 1 oz cheddar cheese and more tea
    1315 salmon with roasted veg from last night plus tea
    1445 tea again
    1900 cold, home made, chicken sausage slices (no bread or rusk filler) with tomato and cucumber salad and more tea
    2030 tea again
    2200 tea again
    That's a lot of tea but our water tastes foul at the moment and I have been told by my doctor to keep the level of fluids up after ending up in hospital a few weeks ago - mostly because of dehydration.
    I am as close to zero carb as I can get but, apart from the occasional short term dip (for about a couple of hours) to upper and mid target range, my readings are still higher than they ought to be.

    In Australia they have (or at least had) open days where you scrub and tidy like mad and then go out (having hidden away any small pocket sized collectibles! ;)) ) The estate agent shows the people around and is responsible for security/making sure the everything is ok. As tenants about to leave, we had to allow the house owner to have the house shown a few times at the end of our lease. Open houses did tend to be a weekend pastime for some people. But at least you weren’t there to hear rude comments.

    Hi Rachox, just a random question, but are you in Africa?
    Wherever, have a lovely holiday.
