    can see the appeal @trick60
    has a very Spanish feel to it,
    rather unsurprising, i suppose,
    given the history..

    did wonder if you were doing the good/bad impression of @Debandez shoulder twins

    Looks nice n warm and you seem to be having a whale of a time.

    BG's....meh..never as easy on holiday as it is at home,
    i blame all that delicious sun drenched temptation..:D

    Plenty of time to get back in harness when you get back

    For now..just Enjoy the moments.

    yours sincerely,
    without a scrap of Jealousy..;)

    @trick60 I loved the photo of Santa Barbara too. The white buildings reminded me of the pretty white houses someone else posted on this thread a while back. @dunelm ? I can't remember who posted them but the white houses, like Santa Barbara's are lovely.

    Good evening all

    was 4.3 this morning.

    Away visiting my brother and sister in the North of England so I'm using my tablet to post. The forum looks quite different
    Hope your day has treated you well.

    Thank you @SaskiaKC. 47 years to the day, although we started courting in 1965 when 15, 60's children.

    So before going out for the meal and locking up my pet Dracula he managed a bite of 5.2 :) after a meal from a menu with limited low carb options, Sautéed Button Mushrooms with melted cheese to start, ditched the bread, 8oz Gammon Steak with two fried eggs, carrots, broccoli and peas, ditched the chips, a glass of red wine, then the tempter a choice between Goosberry Crumble and ice cream a favourite from before T2D days or Black Current Cheese Cake on amaretto base, I went for the Cheesecake and boy the glaze on the Black Currants must have been pure sugar, espresso to finish.

    On getting home I let Dracula out to do his worst, 5.5 not bad I thought but what will happen in another hour when the cheesecake finds its way into my blood, another 5.5 what's going on? In all fairness I have noticed that cheesecake does not push my BS up but I do still limit my helpings to one every few months or so :(

    I await to see what morning brings.:hilarious:

    It depends on how good your shimmy is. If you've got a good shimmy it wont matter if you were playing a dustbin lid there will be a queue!!!

    Morning all.

    Back at work
    Only threatened ONE person yesterday when I went off the deep end :rolleyes:. So getting better I think ;)

    Codefree meter, fell on floor other day, and glass "darkened"over .. so can't read it
    So no fbg today ..guess as to what I ate and how I feel, it's a 5.9 . ;)

    Spoke with codefree, explained issue, and they have kindly offered to replace meter when I next buy strip's. (Which is Now, as I've got none left )

    Win Win for them and me..what great service :D

    Apologies for being a Dufus @Muddy Cyclist I read the the post as going to someone else's..my bad.:rolleyes:

    Wishing you a belated HAPPY ANNIVERSARY.

    Glad the evening went well .. Cheesecake sounded delicious..:D

    Then in that case....IM BACK IN THE BAND..:D

    WHOOP WHOOP...:hilarious::hilarious:


    Does remind me of an old Eddie Murphy sketch where he discusses Elvis and acting.

    Think the punch line as such was " let him sing ALL his lines...EP:.Lemonade..that cool refreshing drink :singing:...":D
