    Good afternoon. Prickometer said 5.5 at 0500. Rushed upstairs to watch us sailing up the fiord, not a Norwegian Blue in sight.
    Anyhow it’s been up at 26 degrees today. Cooling now.
    Had a choo choo ride on the Flam railway, very nice.

    @dunelm Sounds as though not only are you enjoying the cruise but it is agreeing with you. As for a prickometer, you are a saint to this condition - fingers are my limit:angelic:

    I always try and spread the pain.
    I have been eating Norwegian bread for a few days now, not in great amounts, no discernible change in blood sugars.
    Just had a big seedy bap with cheese and lettuce- let’s see.

    Sounds good any idea how their bread differs or is it just the whole environment suits you?

    Norway has been described as protein obsessed and averse to the over consumption of carbs. Good for them I say.
