    Morning All. 6.8 so nice respite from the 7s. Out to visit son today and lunch at his local pub which does a good roast and happy to swap pots & yorkies for extra veg.
    Have a great Sunday everyone.

    8.1 - back down from the 10s which is great. Plenty of exercise yesterday which helped.

    Also this means I’ve halved my fasting blood glucose in one week!

    Eton Mess? We've got one squatting like a malevolent Giant Cane Toad in Downing Street/Party Central. Does Albo fancy running us remotely - Ardern turned us down already? My Food Fairy makes a really good LC Eton Mess - Stanley didn't. @PenguinMum yay for 6s and enjoy your pub lunch even if Spurs knock some of shine off? @mojo37 :woot: for lower fbg. Go Team D and Spurs.
