    I'm sick of it already. Out in Essex today A12 M ll A120 etc. Too many cars and trucks slowed traffic down and sadly, we have never seen so much litter everywhere we looked, has Essex council given up on clearing it up?

For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Haven't been down that end of the A12 since we moved here and don't want to go there ever again.

    It's Essex, did they ever clear up the litter?

    Mike at 'A Bit About Britain' has a very interesting blog ... a brief introduction
    "Hi – Thanks for visiting A Bit About Britain.  I’m Mike.

    A Bit About Britain is a personal, independent, project that seeks to inspire, inform and entertain.  I want it to be a portal into Britain’s heritage and attractions, aimed at armchair travellers as well as those seeking practical ideas and information.  I make no apology for the strong heritage bias; today’s Britain has been forged by its past – and it’s a fascinating one.  Understanding a bit about a place’s historical context is part of the fun – and it enriches the experience.

    Everything on A Bit About Britain is as authentic, accurate, original and objective  as I can make it.

    Occasionally, A Bit About Britain is eccentric; sporadically, it rants; every now and again, it is iconoclastic; rarely is it 100% sensible."

    He has just posted a great article (well I think it is) about Christmas Magic it's well worth a read

    You can find it here

    All the best Jan

    If you are doing any last minute shopping, hope you get all the LCHF ingredients you need, our fridge and freezer are full with some great food ...

    Yes, we also have a few bottles of our favourite tipple ...

    I also have a good stock of Yorkshire tea bags, well I couldn't run out over Christmas could I !!!

    All the grandchildren are so excited ... will it be early to bed for them ... as soon as they hear those 'sleigh bells' ring I'm sure they will scamper up to bed sunny

    Whatever you are doing over the Christmas Season, I wish you all a good one

    Merry Christmas

    All the best Jan

    On TV news Braintree was mentioned. Left me wondering why there isn't somewhere else in Essex called Dumbtree.

    Disclaimer: parts of Essex are quite nice, mainly the further you are from London and the nearer you get to Suffolk.

    Been not going out much, spectacular weather, bright sun and enough wind to blow-dry the laundry, and amazing displays from the Rooks and Jackdaws in the back field, there must be thousands wheeling through the sky and doing aerobatics.

    A few less pheasants than there were last week <evil grin>
