Wishing Everyone A Happy And Healthy New Year!

I am sure a few of us are hoping for  rather more boring year health wise!

I stopped going out on New Year's Eve years ago when pubs started charging admission and restaurants upped their prices by silly amounts.

I am doing salmon with new potatoes and a selection of vegetables. We do have some strawberries and ice cream for dessert and a bottle of Cava. I imagine some of the Cava will become Bucks Fizz in the morning!

Hope you enjoyed your Salmon.  We were out for lunch and meant to be out for cocktails this evening but our hostess called it off as she is not well.  So we are sitting happily at home with wine and some canapes!  We shall see the New Year in with Jooles Holland if it’s on TV.  We are out for a buffet lunch tomorrow at some friends and it’s always a big do, so a quiet night is fine by us!  Weds we are out to see the Christmas lights in Mousehole (a nearby fishing village) they are always spectacular and back to another friends’ house fir dinner.  Lovely ti be social but a bit tiring!

Didn't get the start I wanted as I woke up with a BG of 14.6, the highest morning one since the sliding scale! As it was OK when I went to bed I can only think it was overtiredness as it was 2:00 when we went to bed + nearly four hours past my bedtime!

Skipped breakfast and all's fine now!

Happy New Year!

A happy and healthy New Year to all my diabetic friends on here.   :mandysballoon: :mandysballoon: :mandysballoon: :red_wine :red_wine :red_wine :red_wine :mandysballoon: :mandysballoon: :mandysballoon:

New Years Eve was lovely.  A friend and I went out to a pub in a nearby village and had a bite to eat.  We then went on to "The Boot" in the village where I live.  John and another friend then joined us both and it was a very pleasant evening.  On New Years Day, John, a friend and I went across to The Boot at lunchtime as the publicans had laid on a free spread for us all.  It was delicious.   ;D 
Diabetes Type2 diagnosed March 2014.  Treated by diet only.  HbA1c 60 on diagnosis, 52 in June 2014, 50 October 2014, 44 December 2014, 48 May 2015, 50 Sep 2015, 53 Jan 2016, 50 Oct 2016, 56 Feb 2017, 50 Jun 2017. 50 Aug 2017. 47 Feb 2018. 50 Jul 2018. Pacemaker fitted 2008 - replaced 2017.

When I get old I don't want people thinking
                      "What a sweet little old lady"........
                             I want 'em saying
                    "Oh Crap! Whats she up to now ?"

We were away from Saturday pm in our motorhome on a rally with naturist friends at a site we've used any number of times over New Year, and of course it's indoors so we could have a nude New Year together if we wanted to - you should start as you mean to go on, don't you think?  All good innocent fun with a gang of mates - nobody drinks too much and falls downstairs etc and nobody has ever spoiled it by getting silly, so far.  Some may have needed support when the cold air back outside hits em on the way to bed, is all!


So it was a good one - and I wish everyone has a brilliant 2019.  We intend to!

Taking my clothes off and going naked in this weather is definitely a no no for me.  Yesterday I was like a Dunlop man.  I had so many layers of clothes on that my movement was restricted somewhat.  Each to their own I suppose........ brrrrrrrrrrrr.  The thought of walking naked back to motor homes and caravans with temperatures below freezing gives me goose pimples!  You naturists must be a hardy lot!

A happy and healthy New Year to you and Pete, Sedge.  Hopefully we can meet up again sometime in the summer.  :)

I don't expect they are going back to their motorhomes/caravans with nothing on.  Presumably they put on some clothes before venturing outside.
