    We have got a couple of bottles of it in the first aid box, great stuff for a temporary fix for tooth ache. We got ours from our pharmacy here in Bundy.

    There are no dental departments in hospitals here @maglil55 There is a dental hospital in Cardiff, but that is South Wales. I live in North Wales over 120 miles away. So that is impossible.

    I might go and get a fresh bottle of Clove oil tomorrow. I have had this one a few years.

    I not sure it looses it strength or goes off, give it a good shake up and put a drop on with a cotton bud to try it out

    a small slice of pizza (think quarter of flat pita bread)
    a mini can of regular pop (hypo treatment)
    Half a bottle of G2

    In short will figure something else out eventually when it gets cooler

    Thanks @DJC3. How could there possibly be any stress? By then Bojo the first will bestride this kingdom, ably assisted by members of The Drones Club and Field Marshall Tubby Francois. Stress will be illegal and Unicorn eggs will be 20p a gross. Silly girl.

    Good morning all. So far behind (again) and haven’t caught up with the millions of posts I’ve missed, but checking in from New York before I go missing for good.

    Managed an almost carnivorous flight - boosted by snaffling some deli items from the lounge - and am loving the meaty options here - although I wish the Americans ate more lamb. It’s hard to find and expensive. Also stocking up on the low carb treaty things including various brands of baked cheese. Whisps are my favourites but the Parm Crisps are pretty good too.

    Good to see your post. Have a great time in New York - a very good whole food delli and market underneath the Time Warner Centre at Columbus Circus.

    My kitchen is still a disaster area and my supplies have all but run out - can't go shopping until tomorrow so it's a question of scratching around to see what takes up no space to prepare. I ended up with sardines on a couple of small slices of wholemeal toast (from a loaf I had in the freezer) for breakfast.

    I'm hungry, but can't think of what to have for a quick lunch - that's dangerous for me, I might find something I shouldn't eat.

    One way or another I will make my vegetable curry tonight. Some oif the utensils out of the dreaded cupboard are now washed and dried so I may find a little space on the draining board. I ordered some fresh Thai chillies from Amazon a few days ago land they arrived yesterday, so I'll use one of the milder ones and some other spices. Can't make it too hot because I've no yoghurt left to cool it down, or coconut milk either, for that matter.

    My cheeky devil of a son has gone to town to buy antifungal paint for the back of the cupboard but can't trust him to get any of the shopping I need - he won't have time anyway because the 2 "boys" have gone to pick up a 2nd hand freezer I have obtained to take the rest of the contents of my big freezer and time is short for son No 2.

    Son No 1 was looking at the job requiring to be done on the cupboard and, says he "I think we should just take the cupboard right out (it is actually a couple of IKEA wardrobes which I thought would do the job) and repaint the whole wall, right down to the floor" (bottom 4" can't be reached). I agreed, but don't want to do it right now - another month or so before I am ready to tackle that. Then says he, "while I am at it, why don't I just take out the whole wall and re-insulate it - the old insulation might have been high spec 40 years ago, but it doesn't match up to modern standards." This is the wall to which the sink unit is fitted as well as the big equipment cupboard. "One day," says I, "but first, finish the utility room." This has been a work in progress for about 4 years and we've been making do without a sink in there since then, when he took the old one out. He's a great "kid" (can I describe a 52 year old as a kid?) but he takes forever to finish off the jobs he's very capable of doing. I shouldn't complain, he's an angel really, especially considering that he has to deal with a lot of serious health issues. But I wish, I wish, he would just stick to a job and finish it.

    I do have a little gruyere cheese left and some of my pickles. That'll do for lunch I think.

    I did @Tipetoo
    But didn’t sleep too well.

    Went and bought some more clove oil. A new one. But it tastes horrible. It doesn’t feel as smooth as the old clove oil. Yes it does work, but it makes me wonder if there are different qualities/grades of clove oil, just like there are different qualities/grades of lavender or rose oils.
    The old one tastes much better. I don’t think the old clove oil has lost much of its power, if any.

    It's not so hot up here in Yorkshire - the garden thermometer shows 18c but it's due to be a lot hotter tomorrow.

    The monthly shopping was done this morning - eight shops visited and stuff bought at all of them. I didn't feel like going (cold bounced back again) but just had to get on with it because we are running out of stuff and Mr C says he's not shopping in 30c heat tomorrow.

    So today...

    Breakfast: Toby carvery buffet breakfast. I had sausages, bacon, eggs, mushrooms and baked beans. Lots of it and very nice. The idea is that having a big breakfast stops us impulse buying. It didn't.

    Lunch: Cup of tea

    Dinner: Mr C is cooking
    Starter: BIG prawns fried in butter, garlic, chopped red chilli and lemon on a bed of lettuce from the garden
    Main: fresh mussels in a white wine and garlic stock
    Dessert: any strawberries that are ripe in the garden.

    We couldn't understand how some of the strawberries are being partially eaten because all our fruit and veg is grown in a large fruit cage. We saw the culprit this morning - a tiny blue tit which fits through the holes in the mesh. Just glad it wasn't mice!

    @DJC3 you asked about the libre and the sauna and steam room yes I’ve been in both with it on but limited time to around 5mins in each and it does have a waterproof covering I applied on advice from @maglil55. Dosent seem to have bothered it yet so will carry on.

    Evening all. I may be the only person who has spent the day wearing a fleece and feeling cold. Broke my own record for tea today - no idea how much. Also had LC electrolytes in my water bottle and 1 CWC. @shelley262 sounds like a fab bay and delicious menu. Question for you and other libre wearers. Do you still finger prick as well and if so how close are the two? Hopefully no need for the fleece tomorrow. Have a great evening and weekend.

    @Chook fresh mussels in white wine with garlic sounds delicious.
    Hope you are able to chase that cold away soon.
    I meant to eat less today. Well perhaps it was, sort of.
    No breakfast, tea.
    Cwc
    Lunch was a mixed salad (2 mushrooms, 5 tiny tomatoes, chopped celery, 1 radish, and some leaves) with baked piece of salmon with whole grain mustard dressing.
    Strawberries, blueberries with Greek yoghurt
    Tea
    Nuts
    Evening 2 slices LC bread with cheddar, Camembert and ham
    More berries and yoghurt
    More tea (Dad makes non stop tea).
    A few years ago I heard of a really good way to cook salmon - I always do it that way now (also other fish). Brush with oil, season and put on baking/greaseproof paper on a tray. Put into a cold oven, turn on to 200C and bake for 20 mins. This will cook one or lots more pieces of fish with less smell and much better. When I cooked 4 very large fat pieces I gave it 25 minutes. I don’t like pink salmon so this cooks it through, just right for me.

    Breakfast scrambled eggs and mushrooms.
    Lunch some charcuterie and a flaxseed bun with cream cheese. SF jelly& cream
    D: Chicken Caesar salad, another recipe from Aseem Malhotra’s Pioppi diet book, it was very good, lovely Caesar dressing. Most of the recipes have been nice apart from that terrible nut butter omelette a few days ago.
    @ianpspurs why have you been wearing a fleece? Is it chilly in the Fens or are you just feeling cold because you’re hungry?
