    @Diabeticliberty Yes,lovely bread.One of the joys of being retired is having time for these things.When we both worked life was far too stressful for home baked bread.His latest purchase (and new toy) is a bread machine........trouble is the smell of baking bread is always very tempting.Id post you a parcel but it wouldn't be the same without that fresh smell!!!My contribution is making the low carb crackers we both like, and I can eat without a guilty conscience!

    Hi Lisa having struggled to lose 3 stone since changing to insulin I’ve managed to put on 2.5 stone agIn I’m incredibly frustrated but never give in. Talking to my gp I wouldn’t have minded putting the weight on if I’d gone on a 3 month all inclusive . I keep trying trying to balance low Bg and losing weight

    Hey we all slip, me more than the rest of you put together. My whole life is one slip after another. In your own case you have lost it once and can of course lose it again :)

    Hi @Bubbsie they are a lovely dog wouldn't be without them but they do take some looking after it's the folds and flat face with breathing problems,we have to be careful when we have sunny days winter included they cannot go for long walks and even short ones when it's warm are out of the question,they suit me Has I don't do much long walking anymore but if you like walking with your dog don't get a pug has cute and lovely Has they are!K
    A bit of good information my vet gave me before we bought Louie look for big wide nostrils,straight legs we did and Louie is much better than Elle she has terrible breathing problems but we rescued her, we have had rescued dogs for 37 years boxer yorkies now a pug we loved them all!K

    Harry can be walked for miles in the Autumn & Winter...although does suffer in the summer...he's very fit for a bulldog...not too much fat on him,...good solid boy...despite all their problems...have such a soft spot for pugs...Pekinese & bulldogs...they have such great characters.

    Pugs are like Harry autumn winter they love a walk I used to take Louie on my 2hour walks when he was younger. But a few years back he collapsed when I was out with him frightened me to death so now it's short walks and only when it's cool early mornings and evenings.

    4.7 this morning. And one piece of good news. Mum who had a HBAC1 last year of 48, has now been rechecked. After a stone weight loss and a year later, she is now at 43. Result! And all from a change in diet (i.e. no cakes to eat in the house). Well done mum!

    Take care in that snow...not one of my favourite things for driving...had heated seats in my Saab (loved that car)...the first time I used them...the ex's 'important parts' got warm very quickly...for a brief moment he was worried he'd peed himself.:)

    Të gjithë unë përse të mos marrë të gjithë mua nuk mund të shihni se unë jam një diabet tip 1. Inspired by @Ymdawd snowy Highland adventure I scraped all of the frost from my freezer this morning took,into my garden and made myself a snowman. When competed he turned to me and said your waking blood sugars are 3.4mmols and please tell me can you smell carrots?
