    Morning All. 6.5 for me today to round off a week of 6s.
    Its our 35th wedding anniversary today but we are not known to make a fuss on the day. We had a lovely weekend away last weekend and going to the Cotswolds the next BH weekend. However OH insists we have supper out so that will be nice (if challenging for mt BG!). We had drama in our rural lane yesterday 3 ambulances and helicopter landed in field at the bottom of my drive. I am waiting to hear who or what happened as they were telling folk to go back to their homes. Upset me a lot. There is one house which changed hands a while back and I dont know the occupants but in general we all look out for each other here.
    Have a great Sunday everyone. Stay well, stay safe.

    Hm! I tried this low ingredient recipe to see what happened - it was OK - I just think that the water volume could be dropped gradually - the person in the video has a very hot Aga type oven like my mothers - very hot - a normal domestic oven probably can’t get all the water to steam out in just an hour.
    Anyhow, I have a recipe that I do like (amongst others) in my CMT with more ingredients if you like:

    4.6 today. The second morning in the 4s this week. So it just shows that, for me, getting stressed does affect blood sugars.

    Today will be an admin day because tomorrow we are off on hols for a few days. We are staying at Orford in Suffolk - just an hour and a half leisurely drive away. So.looking forward to it. Will be taking plenty to read in case it rains.

    Been up for a while, and then back to bed, and now up again. Happy Sunday - dull as a dull thing but no rain - bonus.

    The wonder wheel of early rising and dark o’clock tea sipping gave a lowly 4.9 at 0500. In anticipation, I suspect, for the promised bacon and eggs later this morning with some of my linseed loaf fried in butter and topped with reduced tinned tomatoes.

    It’s the glorious 12th tomorrow so on with the tweeds and a check of the gun cupboard tonight.
    Here is a recipe that I like if you care to have a couple of grouse over the coming weeks:

    Have a wonderful day if you can, laughter and hugs are good for the soul.

    5.7 this morning. Decided that because of the weather and been trying to get to the shop for 2 days to order from prime now, bit of a pain as I can’t get all that I want and have to buy other bits to spend enough to get delivery. But I cba to go out getting wet or blown away.

    Ha lol I looked at the black cat with the umbrella and it reminded me of my Bobs complaining on what we call Soggy Moggy day!
    Hope you get what you need without braving the elements.

    5.8 today. Probably remnants of too much prosecco at the carpenters tribute the night before.

    Pat my BIL had his 15 years of service award yesterday. He was presented with a beautiful pocket watch engraved with lovely words, a book token and a card signed by all the staff. He has been off work poorly with one thing and another so it was good for him to see everyone. They all think the world of him.

    Today is omelette day. Cheese n mushroom with a cuppa. Not christened dinner yet. May get a take away from local carvery. Yum.

    2nd viewing on house we are selling (we renovated). The estate agent told us viewer is looking to put in an offer and wants to view again. It's nail biting stuff I can tell you!

    [​IMG]

    Today is going to be a nasty day weather wise so staying in on the cards. Building a bed for our granddaughter, little bit of painting walls downstairs and a deep clean. Ready for the royal visit (my auntie from Dublin!!! She is the last remaining sibling of my mum who had 12 so she is very special to us all). I need to make my house look like it's always this pristine!!!
