    She's the cutest little christmas angel reading a book! She's made out of metal, much like you would learn to make an angel out of paper when first starting school, and hand painted.
    My aunt sent her just after christmas (along with some cheese, nuts, a meat thermometer and warm glittery socks) and I put her on my table after unwrapping so I wouldn't forget to give her a nice permanent place in one of my plants.
    I did forget, so now she lives on my table, getting moved about to make room for other things, it's a small table. :)
    I guess she needs a name!

    Didn't have breakfast today - too much of a rush, first with Em arriving to go to school from here (with her bacon and egg inside her) and then my cleaner asked if she could come a day early and actually arrived earlier than she normally would. Since it's only the floors she cleans, I make sure everything else is done and everything up off the floor - that's the rush. Next week she will help me to strip and make my bed since I was telling her how difficult that had been yesterday. I'd rather do it myself, but it really is getting to be ridiculous - both in terms of pain and the time it takes.

    Anyway - it's 11.30 now and she's gone, so I can have my brunch. Feeling a bit shaky and thought, perhaps BG had dropped too low so tested it. 18.9! So I just had my basal dose of insulin (late) and a correction dose of Humalog and will now fry off the remaining 2 lamb chops.

    2nd meal today will be some of the stewed beef with chilli and chocolate.

    9D99C3B5-E149-480D-9B07-05C76C9824FF.jpeg Remembered to photo my main meal just in time! I usually think about it when part way through...
    Lunch two boiled eggs with hm lc buttered roll followed by yoghurt with raspberries and 10g of 85% chocolate
    Dinner as photo : venison casserole- cooked all day in slow cooker - with generous portion of hm cauliflower cheese served with glass of red wine followed by lc blondie and cream.
    Eating a fair amount of venison it’s not travelled far and is grass fed plus not too overpriced for quality U.K. grass fed meat.

    @Antje77 she is cute and definitely needs a name, what a lovely thoughtful aunt you have, maybe name the little Angel after her?
    Today was going very well until 10 minutes ago when I unexpectedly ate about 30g of 90% chocolate. Darn it!
    B- cheese and mushroom 2 egg omelette
    L- leftover Keto curry bowl, only about 1/ 2 portion left so added cheese and an extra egg.
    D- DD Asian chicken and broccoli stir fry. Very nice and quite filling so I’ve no idea why I attacked the chocolate straight afterwards. I really irritate myself at times.

    Evening all. Don’t think I remembered to post yesterday. Busy afternoon/evening.

    Two OMAD days to report on.

    Yesterday was slow cooked lamb breast. No pic - demolished too quickly. Felt hungry afterwards but was distracted by a long medical appointment and then Clubhouse.

    Today was 2 courses - air fried pork belly pieces (coated in chilli oil) followed by air fried lamb ribs.

    Bed 6.1 FBG 6.2 - Woo Hoo!

    Had to do a bit of swapping today.

    B.TAG and a little later the 2 egg omelette with ham and cheese.
    L. I didn't fancy chilli for lunch so had 30g of granola with 4 raspberries.
    D. Hubby was at the football and I was running him back and forward. I can't be bothered cooking when he's out so I ended up using the remaining lo dough from yesterday as a wrap with prawns and lettuce.

    His team won too - just!

    They sold artichokes at Lidl today!

    I've eaten one once, prepared by my mum some 30 years ago.
    So can you please share your favourite artichoke recipes before dinner time? Will of course have a look at the Google too to find out what to do with them, but nothing beats using someones favourite recipe. :)

    Looked up blue swimmers on the net. Looks better in the picture than the live ones. Glad you enjoy them, but not for me.

    OMAD plus an illicit cake today.

    Ate a mixed grill of Waitrose 1 free range Cumberland sausages, bacon, eggs and lamb chops. Then on a whim I went up to the Arsenal store to buy a shirt, and ‘happened’ to pass a sugar free bakery. They have some keto cakes so ordered a slice of raspberry gateau. Enormous, filling - almost couldn’t finish it - and not sweet at all: the raspberries were the sweetest bit.

    It's almost 5.30 pm. Em has gone home with her dad and I'm thinking about making something to eat - it's been all tea today and nothing solid so far. Probably something with eggs will fit the bill. Maybe a couple of fried eggs and that will do me.

    BG ridiculously high again, despite a correction dose. Must admit the correction dose did help - dropped it from 18.4 to 11.1 around 5 pm. Been feeling a bit odd with tight chest and a bit wonky when I move around, so maybe that's something to do with the high BG. The lump in my breast is growing fairly fast - I can actually see it now in the right light and it's getting to be a bit uncomfortable - letting me know it's there anyway. Couldn't sleep in bed at all last night - that might be making BG worse.
