    Late Afteringnoon folks, been a trifle ( other pudding available ) under Mrs J's close scrutiny all day, it was something I said about housework etc.

    A 6.4 greeted me after a full on roast last night, which pleased me, but I paid a price because of the high fats in a roast.
    Alternative roast recipes are not acceptable to Mrs J who has a kill at a glance chip installed and can be quick with her fists if required. She is of mixed race Irish and Welsh.

    Well folks me and my other me's hope you had a good day, today I found time to glance at a few alternative to salt studies which included GRAPHS, shock horror.

    Strange how graphs can make a load of old hogwash look good, it's a wonder them, their expense fiddling policians haven't included them in the Brexit farce.

    Hi,
    5.7 for me this morning.

    More snow coming (all day), at least the shovelling should be good for my blood glucose.

    First, a hug because I've BTDT with the weighing and counting and tweaking and I'm sorry you're having to deal with it too.

    Next, I heard this earlier today and am passing it on as it has to do with seasonal weight variances:

    Overheard at the Paws-4-Purrs Cat Fitness Centre:

    One Moggie queen to another:

    "I have to leave early today. I absolutely must go to the groomer's and have something done about my fur! My winter coat came in too thickly and I think I've put on ten grams!!!!"

    Thanks, I thought it was odd as I never have before either. I’m going back in tomorrow to query it I think.

    Like Guinness. Once you've been away from it long enough, it all tastes like Guinness.

    (In your memories.)

    Good morning all. Been a bit busy these last few days, but finally managed to catch up with all posts last night.

    Fasting blood sugars for the last four days were 4.7, 5.1, 5.0, and 5.2.

    Have a great day all.

    Morning...an early night last night which of course meant I am up super early (04:30)… an appointment with the anti-coagulation clinic this morning...TBH I'm not sure I want to go tired of the medical profession at the moment...I feel irritable & p****d off with my GP practice...in particular a practice manager who simply refuses to manage her practice...what do these people get paid for...maybe more coffee will lift my mood...I need something...only two days to go to my appointment with Dr Dreadful on Thursday... woke to a 5.4
