    On the semi skimmed fbg thread @JohnEGreen opined that eating to one's meter to chase lower fbgs may well be counter productive - I think. Woke remoaner bias aside this piece is along the same lines. I'm also struck by the feeling that chasing lower and lower A1cs via "exotic" food choices may leave one in the same place. Yes, I'm a rum cove. No, I'm not apologetic. Yes, it is Friday.

    A well deserved 7.8 at 5am deserved because of over load of carbs yesterday including takeaway think I need to chase after the low carb wagon and get back on board . At very least running after it will give me some much needed exercise :rolleyes:

    Good morning everyone from the tantalising yellow ball peep show here in the dark and dangerous north
    The wonder wheel of a late chicken salad came home at 5.6 this am

    House full of small people and luckily they did not wake until 7, mind you it was a late night for them. Bowling is the activity for this morning and then check out what bit of beach is left - high tide at 2.34 today. Anyhow, I am now surrounded by ninky nonks who are baying for breakfast so better go and sort them out.
    Have a great day, wonder if I can manage koffy.

    @gennepher stunning kaleidoscope you little gem. @Krystyna23040 great fbg, good news on Admin, take it easy after all that teaching. @dunelm result on the NNs sleeping late. I hope the back issue is resolving/resolved. @karen8967 right back at ya for the weekend (see below, just for you) My fbg is a KU but be it 4 or 10 my menu would be the same. Elsie ain't beguiling enough to lead me to waft outside off all Lord Gower like. Now, is Grunty Fen Red or Green list today after the Shapps shifting?. Remember your stays Alfred - aren't whalebones verboten these days? Is it legal to offer this kind of thing for sale without a licence? I can't buy tubs of rat poison without one. I'm telling the infamous bleeding heart liberal Pritti McDinghyrammer.

    8.30am FBG 4.1
    Why is this so low today?
    Errant was weighed and has put on a few grammes. Maybe he is meant to be a 4kg cat, although he still has a little pot belly he is noticeably increasing in his physical abilities. Running and jumping with confidence, which is a delight to see.
