    Hope all goes well from now on @Rachox. Sounds as though the removal of that smaller stent shouldn't be too onerous. Hugs for all the hard times you've had with it.

    Lots of roasted veg left over after my meal yesterday so currently making roasted vegetable soup. the only stock I had was chicken so it's not entirely vegetarian, but then, I'm not either. I'll keep the soup for tomorrow.

    Breakfast: a bit rushed so it was just a slice of ham that I'd baked yesterday and a couple of Jacobs crackers.

    Later I'll do something with the chicken leg I cooked yesterday - Asian style, I think and I'll try cauliflower rice again, to see if it still has unfortunate effects.

    I'm not a fan of Bovril (or Marmite for that matter) , but I like this Marigold Swiss Vegetable Bouillon. It makes a nice veggie drink. They do a vegan version as well. It's not as strong which I believe helps the taste. 92607-1598974746222340938.jpg

    Could it be a bug hitting you? Remember Em wasn't well not that long ago and I did mention a 24/48 hr norovirus was rife here.

    @Rachox - glad to see you're home and, I hope! minus the stone, stent and pain. I had a quick scan forward to check. I'm still a bit down but to be honest, I think it is just a case of too much to do and too little time to do it in. I know I'd feel better if I could just get on top of everything.

    Tuesday 21 September - bed and FBG both 7 6

    B. TAG - busy day. School back and we have a funeral this afternoon.
    L. Made a cheese and tomato toastie with SLC bread. Still had eldest grandson here for lunch and part time home schooling. Just writing and sentences today since he'll have to go home early due to the funeral.
    D. Really couldn't be bothered by the time we got back plus I was chasing up our "Guaranteed" delivery of grandson's birthday present. Ended up with a roast beef, tomato and mustard toastie with a little salad on the side.

    Funeral was a close neighbour who had the same cancer as the first brother I lost. Brought back all sorts of memories as they shared a black humour with their incurable cancers.

    Wednesday 22 September - bed 7.1 FBG 6.7

    Grandson's birthday and present still in the Amazon facility in Edinburgh! School continues birthday or no birthday (although I did tell him he could have a day off home schooling and do as he wanted).

    B. TAG and a slice of SLC toast with Dairylea.
    After drop of DIL & I had a 2 hr session with CAMHS. Finally, someone is listening over grandson's anxiety and they admit we've done and are doing a great job the way he's progressed.
    L. No time! Rush from CAMHS meeting to pick up grandson for his lunch and quick trip to TESCO so DIL could get bits and pieces for his birthday dinner.
    D. Still chasing the Amazon delivery guy. Grandson wanted to go hunting with me when the map finally appeared on my phone. Persuaded him to wait. I did have back up presents which I'd won. Dinner ended up as lo dough pizza margarita.

    Not a lot of time for anything today. Took both boys to Smyths after school as Grandson had a lot of birthday cash from the overseas family. He very kindly gave his little brother £10 to spend. Dropped them back and 30 mins after I got in tge Amazon guy appeared so back out to deliver gift.
    You're correct @Annb, family responsibilities can absorb your time but you stick with it.

    I feel calm and relaxed just looking at that photo, it’s beautiful. We’ve swum during some glorious sunrises, it really sets the day up. We also go at night when the moon is full, it’s become quite a thing.

    Thank you very much, It was a wonderful day.
    I managed not to eat all the ‘accidental’ chocolate so that was another win!

    Glad you are home @Rachox , I hope you’re recovering well.
    Are you starting to feel on top of things again @maglil55 ? you are always so busy I’m not surprised you feel a bit overwhelmed at times. What were the extra birthday presents you won? I love hearing about your random prizes ( perhaps I should look on the parallel chat thread for the answer though, I’ve derailed enough here)
    Back on topic…
    Yesterday’s food was breakfast at the hotel: smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, then Greek yoghurt and a seedy topping. Nothing to eat at daughter’s graduation - they’d laid on a lovely looking buffet but every item had too many carbs for me. Had 1/2 glass Prosecco ( not really keen on Prosecco but the alternative was orange juice - I was hoping for a tea or coffee)
    Hungry by the time we got home so tapas style bits of cold meat, cheese and olives
    Dinner was based on this https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/keto-asian-cabbage-stir-fry which is one of daughters favourites.
    One small gin as a nightcap.

    Thursday 23 September - bed 6.2 FBG 6.2. Back to normal for the birthday boy. They both declared they want mince, carrot, onion, peas and mash tonight for dinner. Also they want it early as eldest wants home for 4 45 to build the Lego that arrived late yesterday.

    B. TAG and 2 slices of SLC toast with Dairylea.
    L. Nothing
    D. Mince and I found a vegetable souffle thing in Lidl as part of their French week. Similar to what Iceland discontinued but lower in carbs. Will be stocking up before they vanish. Grenade Ice cream bar.

    Friday 24 September - bed 4.3 FBG 4 - no idea. Got to 5.8 post breakfast then back down to the 4's again.

    Both boys in school until 12.30 as it's half day. Took them swimming after school to give some a chance to fit the lighting kit to the Lego Fortress which Grandson built in a matter of hours despite it supposed to take 2 days.

    B. TAG and 2 slices of SLC toast with Dairylea.
    L. Nothing
    D. Glass of Lidl's bitters (from Italian week) with soda. It's a not as strong campari. I needed it! Youngest in bother again for retaliation. Took mince from yesterday, added chilli and tomato/veg and made a lo dough fajita which I had with guacamole, sour cream and salad. Grenade Ice cream bar.

    Son is currently cursing me for getting the lighting kit. It seems it is very, very fiddly.

    I use that in a lot of recipes.
    Make lovely soup, and a teaspoon added to any savoury dish always enhances it.
    Tried a new courgette bread this afternoon that uses coconut flour that tasted too sweet to me, but a teaspoon of this added solved that nicely

    Nothing until 12, then 2 hard boiled eggs from Co-ops sandwich section, and 30g of a new Montezuma 70% black cherry. Omg too good. Says 37g per 100g but tastes more than that.

    Then baked this afternoon, this courgette bread recipe
    https://www.ketofitnessclub.com/blogs/breads/zucchini-bread
    I added some extra seasoning and fresh basil in place of the dried oregano. Turned out well. Texture more like a cake than bread but very acceptable as a savoury, and good spread with butter. Can't taste the courgette. Think it would be better with a stronger cheese. Definitely one to play with.
    Recipe says cuts into 16, I got 12 so about 5g per slice I reckon.
    Now sliced and in the freezer (well most is, 2 slices when to tasting, 2 to greed and 2 to tomorrow!)

    I don't think it is a bug. It keeps on happening - very often when I have gone too long without food, but not always. It's just a worse version of the nausea I get quite frequently. Just a "funny tummy" I guess.

    I was booked for an all day Zoom meeting today but I had plans to have some of the chicken that I cooked yesterday (or was it the day before?) I was going to add some vegetables to it and make a Chinese style chicken dish and have it with cauliflower rice but, just as I was having a break from the meeting, Em arrived with her Mum and Dad with an electrical job for Neil, so there was no time to cook, and now it's time to go back to the meeting. So, no 2nd meal today. Might grab a bag of crisps when the meeting is over.

    B. Black tea, 1 lc toast with crunchy peanut butter. No time for coffee.
    10,000 steps, black coffee in cafe.
    L. In another cafe. Ploughmans in ciabatta roll. Ate the lambs lettuce and cheese and a quarter of the roll. Black coffee.
    Snack. Oat biscuit, very small apple.
    D. Other half of crustless quiche with extra cheese on top. Still not nice! Salad of home grown tomatoes with black olives, red onion and basil. An apricot, Greek yoghurt, topped with flaked almonds and cinnamon seeds.
