    Don't think Norfolk is worse than elsewhere in that respect.

    5.7 this morning. Lots of protein last night. Chicken kebab night. 2 spoons of the most amazing chilli sauce, cabbage and a little onion. No bread. Red wine (2 medium glasses) and a few mixed nuts. Have the same most Saturdays. Love Saturdays. Blood sugars well within 2 points after 2 hours. Win win. And reasonable FBS.

    Tomorrows might not be so good. Fathers day. Hubby has 2 children. Same 2 as me Haha. Both bestowed lovely pressies and cards on him. Emotions flowed. Out for dinner as the icing on the cake. He had 3 courses. Everyone else just 2. His dessert was a combination of 4 mini desserts. It was to share with daughter and 2 year old granddaughter (who turned up her nose!!!). I grabbed her spoon and had a small spoon of the cheesecake. My dessert was a special coffee, no sugar. We have had a lovely day, even though we did both work this morning.

    Home now. To finish his day he watched the UNICEF footy match and is currently laughing his head off watching the new Top Gear. Seems suitably impressed. I'm his waitress service for the evening and coffee has just been served. He is smiling like a Cheshire cat. One happy bunny. Which is just how it should be for the man who is the best dad in the world.

    You just taught me something. Another difference in this common language which "divides" the UK and the US. :)

    So, white goods in the UK are dryers, washers, etc.?

    Here a "white sale" means towels and sheets and other bedding.

    I am in the crawled-out-of-the-wreckage-old-age group and standing firm looking round from the higher ground we've gained!

    When I'm not sleeping through TV programs ... :D

    5.7 this morning and I need the rains to hold off until 3pm so I can get the lawns cut. May have to do a 'reverse rain dance' as the odds are not in my favour ;)

    113 mg/dl (6,3 mmol/l) for me this morning.
    Morning fasting counts continue to be the hardest to manage. My post prantial counts are comparatively much better. Screenshot_20190617-083808_DiabetesM.jpg

    Drat, that’s disappointing so perhaps shelling out for one of those may not be such a good idea. Thank you for letting us know.

    Brilliant - take care in that there Bournemouth place with all those tempting treats on display - they might even be wafting yorkies under your nose.

    Yes, in the UK “white goods” refers to large electrical goods used domestically such as refrigerators and washing machines, typically white in colour. I have a sister, born in the USA, who lives in Texas - we constantly have to explain meanings to each other. Her husband and their two girls think that this is extremely funny.

    @HarrisonK I hope your weather is better than that on offer here - wet yet again!
    5.7 when I got up this morning. Off to work soon at least I will be free of the wet dog smell that seems to be a permanent fixture here
    Take care

    Good morning and happy Monday everyone from our static caravan in the land of the damp and overcast. I have just hear what sounds like a large predator wandering over the roof and although it sounds like panther, it’s going to be a crow or an overstuffed pigeon.

    Ate out last night: “can I have the chicken burger with melted cheese but without the sauces or the fancy brioche and with a salad instead of the chips but without the house dressing. Oh! Also, do you have olive oil?” - not a problem.

    The wonder wheel of indulgence and retribution registered a flat 5.0

    I have just spotted the teppanyaki grill on a shelf over the cooker extractor fan so it’s a DIY cooking frenzy on the deck tonight. Will we need umbrellas?

    Morning all, I must apologise for me being missing of late I have had to study for a NEBOSH fire safety Management and Risk Assessment exam for the last few weeks, but sat my exam last week (didn't go well but can resit in December). any way a 7.9 greeted me on the meter of doom this morning, which is better than the last couple of weeks.


    Take care everyone.
