    Awww ... what a precious pup, @jjraak , are those luminous stripes on his harness? Your breakfast looks delicious! I now feel inspired to try something besides toast that actually appeals to my morning mind (or lack thereof).

    @PenguinMum you are an amazing person and a good friend to your friend in Kent.

    @geefull what time did you say dinner will be served? I would like to dash out and fuel up the Lear jet ... I would, if I had a Lear jet to fuel up ... would love to fuel up on that yummy-sounding dinner.

    FBG 6.6 here this morning. The KittenCat presented me with a pre-breakfast hairball and now is saying Come back to bed, so I think I will join her. Today completes my 67th year on this planet, tomorrow begins my 68th; and suddenly I am reverting to my childhood and wanting to explore others as possible retirement havens ... Saturn always looked good ...
    hmm ... according to the souvenirs at the spaceport the eating is good there ...

    We most certainly are in it together, motivating each other each and every day. The support on here phenomenal. Second to non. And we have a great laugh too. Great bunch. Awesome.

    I'm just being a little rebellious on DUK at the moment. They need to get with the programme! Going to ruffle a few feathers every day I can. Need to come at this from every angle. Just gardening and listening to more videos. Check out this link. If I had a £1 for every time sugar is mentioned in videos alone I would be able to not only book another holiday but I'd booking at a world cruise!!! Shocking. Apparently it would be beneficial if we stopped putting it on our cereal! And just one glass of fruit juice every day (shakes her head in disbelief).

    All done and only one phonecall so far :) I had previously set up her iPhone and she picked it up really quickly, as today's instalment is mostly voice-operated via Alexa it has gone well. I realise that if she wants the settings changing on the app I will be called but it's a couple of minutes work. I left her switching the lights on and off ;)

    @jjraak thanks for taking the time to consider my FBG difficulties and for the solidarity. I skipped breakfast today and was up to 8 by 10am (15 hours after last food). Who says D doesnt have a sense of humour :bored: I know it will change soon if I stick to good habits and when I read of Ian’s troubles @Cumberland it puts mine in perspective. Sending hugs to you Ian and I hope these hideous hypos stop and soon.
    @SaskiaKC thanks for the so kind remark. :rolleyes: My poor friend has been through so much in the last 15 months and lives alone so I am glad to be able to help a little. Hope you and the KC are having a good day.
    @Debandez our warrior our trail blazer keep on going, no one better to make them listen. Big respect. Hope you and Eric have a fabulous holiday. Bon voyage!

    Interesting link I'm sharing:

    https://www.diabetesatlas.org/

    Lots of info. 2019 must be due soon which should be interesting. Not caught up on thread yet but looking forward to that after dinner.

    Supermarket today, Morrisons, and they had something called “Milled Omega Seed Mix” - linseed, pumpkin seed, sunflower seed, dried goji berries and 11% carbs - bit high but what the heck - so I made some crackers with it:

    1 and a half cups of the milled seed mix
    1/4 cup chia seeds
    1/3 cup sesame seeds
    1 tsp salt
    1 and a quarter cups of warm water. (Warm helps to mix it).

    Put all the dry ingredients into a bowl - mix a bit - add the water - mix it up - wait 5 minutes to settle down.

    Spread very thinly onto a couple of baking sheets lined with baking parchment. Score it a bit.
    Stick in oven at 90 degrees C for 2 1/2 hours - turning trays every now and again.
    Test to make sure it’s dried out completely - cool and snap into squares.

    Very tasty.

    Very interesting link. How sad that they don't mention starchy carbs turn to sugar. such misleading information. How can they publish such rubbish (this is the edited version as my original version contained slightly stronger language).

    Good luck on 'ruffling a few feathers ' on DUK. They certainly need their feathers ruffled.

    Another one to try, Tesco do a 4 seed mix carbs 4.5 grams per 100, no berries, pumpkin, Flax, Sesame. Sunflower, love it on my yoghurt might try it with this.

    A busy day, water colour painting of Watersmeet (we honeymooned there) for an anniversary card for my lovely lady, 47 years on Monday. Painted three walls in our hall a nice dark moody grey/green, repaired and varnished outside bench, now about to practise our numbers for big rehearsal Sunday ready for a gig, real not virtual.:singing:

    LCHF does what it says on the tin and gives you energy.

    Bloods behaved all day :) carb intake well below 20grams.

    Oh, also watched a video @jjraak shared with us Doc David Unwin, inspirin!

    Right now off to annoy my neighbours, put your ear plugs in.:headphone:

    I've added him on Twitter. Going to educate him :) I think I will just day this to him. Go to Google, input 'reversing diabetes ' and let me know what the solution is for many diabetics. I bet it doesnt involve wholemeal bread, rice, pasta, potatoes, fruit juice... daily!
