1. Sherlock episode 3
Loved it. Was almost back to the form of episode one. Trouble is episode one was so staggeringly good it’s going to be impossible to top. I need to watch all three episodes again now to get them to mesh together, as with the eyes, I haven’t been paying as much attention as I should be.
There’s not one bad thing I can say about, to be honest. I admit that I don’t get the level of dislike some people have—citing racism and gender issues. Perhaps I haven’t noticed them because I’m English? Or perhaps it’s because it’s an A.U. Fantasy, and I don’t expect realism from something with dragon ladies and Sherlock Holmes in the 21st century. I am not the type of person who tuts tuts over potatoes in Lord of the Rings for example. (Believe me, I had a huge row with someone about this once.)
2. Blood Tests: The doctor rang with results today (they came back yesterday, which is pretty speedy! 24 hrs!) and I must be hugely annoying to him as I’m not in imminent danger of death despite my weight. He must be well miffed. My cholesterol is 6,5 mmol/L = slightly elevated, my blood sugar is slightly higher than it was in hospital (now 7.6) so he wants to take a glucose tolerance test now – which means taking a blood test, eating a couple of Mars Bars (this will not be a problem) and then having another test in 2 hours. This will help to indicate whether I’m diabetic, but if I am, he says I’m at the onset of it at the moment, and it’s something treatable, which is Good.
Does anyone have a link(s) for a good cholesterol diet or tips? I don’t actually cook much. I grill, or nuke in general. So recipes aren’t going to be much good. Swapping Olive Oil for butter is easy, I can do that, and I can eat more fruit and porridge, but any other places anyone knows? Everything I’ve found costs money on line if i want more than just tips.
