    Yes hopefully, I think the last time it arrived at Peterborough around the same time (8pm) and it was delivered to me the next day - I hope so as I can't wait for a wee piece of cake with my tea - I have been thinking about it all week since I placed my order!:hungry::cat: - got my cream in too - all ready ...

    Tuesday bed 7.1 FBG 7.2. I don't think I've adjusted to the clock change yet. Sleeping OK but very tired still.
    B. TAG and a slice of SLC toast with pate
    L. Another slice of SLC toast with pate and a warm SLC hot cross bun with butter.
    D. Took a portion of mushroom and chicken soup out of the freezer together with a slice of SLC bread. 2 squares 85%.

    Wednesday bed 7.3 FBG 7.6. Bit of a niggling sore throat. Grandson has been getting through loads of work. He made another step forward today and asked to go outside at break. This was huge for a boy that didn't want to leave his home a few weeks ago. I told him today that the maths he's been doing is next year's but he admits he can do it.
    B. TAG and a slice of SLC toast with pate again.
    L. A sugar free hot vimto.
    D. Chicken wings, a broccoli/cauliflower souffle thing, couple of grilled halloumi sticks - one onion ring (it was battered) and I mixed up a garlic mayo. 2 squares 85%.

    Evening meal today was pretty much same old, same old, various veggies, peanut sauce, marinated pork belly from the freezer.
    Earlier today it was some low carb bread with a much reduced amount of insulin (3 units instead of 9) because I ate the bread on my way to the swimming pool which has just reopened!
    I've pretty much been the epitome of a couch potato since before christmas, due to depression being mean this winter, and due to the pools being closed, as until december my subscription forced me to swim twice a week in a class.

    As of today the outdoor part of the pool has been opened for swimming laps (boring!) so I went for a one hour time slot!
    Went in at 6.3, going up because of the bread, and caught the hypo just before it was there at 4.2 after 35 minutes :happy:
    Ate half an apple to treat/prevent dropping lower, shivering next to the water before going back in. Next time I'll just jump back in with my apple :hilarious:

    Late night snack will be the usual as well, either pork scratchings, nuts or chocolate things, or perhaps all of them :hungry:

    The 'boring' of swimming laps was well compensated by two unexpected visitors at the pool. The pool is one with low edges, as low as the water, so you can look out over the grass in the pool grounds. Two 'scholeksters' (Google translates as oystercatchers, not sure if that is right so I included a picture I nicked from the internet) had discovered the nice warm pool water and had their bath at the side, putting their heads under water and shaking it off again, and taking a few steps back whenever someone swam past, only to come right back to continue their bath. It was both hilarious and beautiful!

    L: 30g cheddar and a few ends of ham. A naughty spoonful of hummus.
    Ran hubby into town for his optiicans appointment which meant I could browse Waitrose. They have green and backs 70% flavours at £1.50. All said 33 gcarbs per 100 so 7g a 2 sq row... so I had to try them didnt I.?
    Ate the whole salted caramel bar while waiting in the car park:bag:
    How do they work out carbs, becuase that was definitely carbier and sweeter than 33g per 100. I'm sure the labelling is wrong

    D: a pack pork scratchings and a h/m chicken curry.
    Ff greek with blueberries
    2 sqs Green and Blacks 70% with orange and almond

    I always have the Green and Blacks as a treat after dinner and so far, fingers crossed it has never spiked me. Even 3 squares rather than 2 seems fine.

    Lunch - a few chicken satay sticks, quarter of a Matthesons square sausage, 2 Babybel and a Fatt Bar butter cookie.

    Dinner - aubergine lasagne followed by a DGF strawberry and cream blondie and a row of Montezuma.

    That’s us broken up for Easter so looking forward to cooking some big lunches again rather than living on sausages and Babybels

    Birthday celebrations yesterday. Started with scrambled eggs and kimchi as a late breakfast.
    Lunch involved a bbq in the garden with all the family finally. It was a gorgeous day, really sunny and hot ( marred slightly be neighbour deciding to light a bonfire an hour earlier but she put it out when I explained, so neighbour wars avoided thank goodness)
    Fabulous fillet steak, 1 lamb chop, Greek style salad and a lot of champagne.
    The local fisherman arrived with our crabs in the afternoon so had half with more salad later on and some fresh raspberries to follow.

    What a lovely day!

    Lunch - creamy garlic mushrooms on 2 slice of SLC bread with an egg yolk topper.

    A Fatt Barr chocolate bite with a cup of tea.

    Dinner - Indian takeaway : saag paneer, garlic chicken tikka and chicken chaat wings.

    And finally tried the hot cross bun from SLC! Toasted and smothered in butter, was heavenly!

    happy birthday @DJC3 sounds like you had a lovely day celebrating with your family and how yummy fresh crabs sounds delish

    Breakfast/brunch had leftovers fried chicken

    A/T BS was 4 but wasn't really hungry but ended up having a slice of hot cross bread with butter

    Went shopping at bunnings as needed some sealant as my toilet is leaking

    Dinner

    Made another batch of garlic chilli prawns so quick and easy to make served with sourdough toast I needed something to soak up the garlic sauce. Also tonight's meal tasted a lot better as I remembered to salt the prawns this time before cooking.
    Edited to add had a gin and Cointreau with Unsweetened cranberry juice and bitter lemon with dinner
