    Good morning folks, back home with a 5.8 on the dice, happy with that after taking on a full frontal pastie assault in sunny Cornwall, two days of cramming for an electrical exam on Saturday morning to get through, the OH says I put the pro in procrastination. Don't know what that means, I might look it up later.

    Never do today what can be put off until tomorrow. Best wishes for the exam you are currently studying for. Hope you can get on with the studying without resistance and no volte-face. I am sure there will be ample chance for fun later. o(h)mg I have gone too VAR - don't want to pylon the pressure.

    6.2 yesterday (had late night choccy with coffee and cream
    5 7 today not bad after large carvery from local which included 2 x small roasties and a little gravy. Had quite a lot to eat over past 2 days too as weight lower than I like (don't like to go below 10 stone 7 lbs and was 10 stone 6 lbs). So more protein than usual which does reflect in my bs usually. Fine balancing act this old diabetes.

    Ive been concentrating on my BIL over past few months as he hasn't been well. Things have improved I'm happy to say. I'm his carer so it's been a worrying time. But I'm feeling a lot happier and able to crack on with helping to spread the word. In discussions with my surgery yesterday and today about my next presentation. Set the ball rolling I'm very lucky as they are so supportive and encourage:

    Patients helping patients
    Empowering people in community
    Social prescribing

    My next presentation is going to be more focused on weight loss the low carb way. But will obviously include control of bs. Be about 1 hour as dont want to bore everyone. My hubby is enthusiastic to help too so I'm bringing him on board. He is a pt at same surgery and has himself lost 21 lbs on this woe. We both feel and look so much healthier and want to help others.

    Off to the PPG network meeting next Monday. Was hoping my leaflet could have been done for then so I could hand out but my guy at the surgery who is helping has annual leave (how rude!). Worse things happen!

    Haven't had time to catch up.on thread but should have time tonight after a very important meeting. One with me and my TV watching LOVE ISLAND #guiltypleasure

    That sounds like a great opportunity to check a place out. I've never heard of that sort of arrangement here. I wonder if sheltered accommodation is like our "independent living" or more like "assisted living." The former means housing for people 62 and over (55 and over in some communities), basically just a regular apartment or house but limited to "seniors" of at least 55 or 62. You are able to live independent of household help/personal care. "Assisted" living provides the household/personal assistance.

    Not been in long after being out all day.

    It was supposed to be our yearly cream tea day. But I cannot partake of all that carby stuff now, so we ended all having a roast lunch. They all had my favourite strawberry cream tartlet for afters. Sigh...

    I know any spuds put my glucose readings up, but I had promised myself just two roast spuds. But the lady put 6 beautiful roast potatoes on my plate even though I had just asked for two. So I was fighting with myself not to eat them. I won the battle, roast spuds lost...

    My prize for being good was an evening blood glucose reading of 7.3! One of my lowest readings for in ever. 0C28EA2D-AE27-4038-9F1C-4C0589A6938A.jpeg

    Anyway I wanted to post a pic of something I saw before I went into the restaurant.

    Well done @gennepher good restraint. Well done for bringing contribution you couldnt enjoy too. About the sign why not ice cream for cats? Our late departed ginger loved custard!
