    Morning all 5.3 for me this morning. Happy with that, thought it would be higher. Had a small amount of chicken curry and a few new potatoes last night (Saturday is the only day I have potato, as a small treat) So well pleased. Have a great day all. :)

    I can recommend the Sage ice cream maker. Expensive but when my gorgeous wife makes the ice cream it lasts just 2 days, and passes the "children" test.

    I would add a vote for the Cuisinart Gelato and Ice Cream Maker. The whole family love our strawberry ice cream with our own strawberries less than an hour from picking. Just cream, strawberries and sweetner of choice.

    Morning lovelies 6.2 slightly more than mildly irritating- I can only think it’s that I’m waking up about 15 mins early- sometimes I test , sometimes lay there in and out of sleep till alarm- for 3 day now- so I reckon that might be it- hope so
