    Good morning everyone, how are you all? I've returned after a rather long absence. It's a bit of a long story...............and not very interesting either, I just had other things I had to do, but now they're under control I can come back.

    Not much going on blood sugar wise, I've got lazier, with the libre, in that I don't try quite so hard to stay in target, as before, but it's all ok.

    Another day at the office. Dropped cranberry juice down my top at breakfast and used a damp clean cloth to get it out. Now I have a nicely drying patch over one boob. Shows up really well on this top....

    Thankfully I am alone at the office for at least another hour!

    We lost power over the whole island this time. We decided we would go shopping oblivious it was island wide, until we hit the first stoplight that wasn't working and then all the rest of them too. No police anywhere, probably a Sunday thing. But gees, people just zipping through the traffic signals, not slowing or stopping for cross traffic on the major road. And only the Home Depot open and functioning! Luckily it only lasted about 3 hours in our area, 70% of the rest of the island wasn't/isn't as lucky!

    It's been going off and on ever since the first time a few days ago, so I am thinking this won't be the last. But we are home with the A/C going and happy to have the lights and computers too. And our phones, it affected the phones too. It's a thing here, but the beaches are worth it!

    Morning all.
    The birthday weekend is over so back to normality with work and spin today. At least waking on a 5.3 was good. Hopefully, there will also be a climb but my climbing partner sprained his knee whilst turning on the TV so not sure if he can make it. I hope he does ... not only so we can climb but also so I can get the whole story. And because his injury is not too severe.
    Lovely to see you back @Alison54321.
    For those of you who have started your school summer holidays, don't party/clean/plan/relax too hard.
    For everyone else, don't work too hard.

    For all, may your BGs be merry and bright ... or is that something else?

    Morning.

    Nice to see you back @Alison54321 I was wondering where you had got to :)

    Things here are the usual low on waking mid 4's which is fine in my world, more arguing with various bits of tech and servers but least I have Spotify working again so I can chill and listen to some tunes :)

    Happy Monday.

    Morning all, have just woken up. How marvellous. Elvis kept me flat and level all night, I seem to have got the settings right for most of the month, I’m very happy with it. Going for HbA1c bloods in a couple of weeks ready for my clinic appointment at the end of next month. Will be interesting to see if it’s made a difference - it’s certainly a lot less work.

    Enjoy your Monday, I’m still resting my knee. Nice to see you back @Alison54321 :)

    Sprain a knee turning tv on @helensaramay! Can’t help laughing, but with sympathy for him.
    Hi again @Alison54321. Hope everything that kept you away more or less sorted. Good to see you again.
    Has 0.3 below ever felt so frustrating, sitting waiting for the five to drive. A couple of gross charity pack sweets in so shouldn’t be long.

    Lol, things may have changed since the "bad to the bone" days of the 60s.. I do a lot of biker rallies.
    There is a fair bit of charity fundraising involved in way to change attitudes towards the generic "hell's Angel."

    They fight for awareness of various conditions & diseases now.. :)

    So, that's the best time to go supermarket shopping in peace and tranquillity with the shelves fully stocked and pleasant staff - 9.00 a.m. on a Monday Morning!

    Empty bus as well almost all the way home. Still got the ultra narky passenger who complained to the driver about my shopping trolley taking up space and me sitting in a priority seat when I wasn't disabled enough in his eyes to need it... Familiar to me Driver and I exchanged a smile - we both know this one of old - and both pointed out, the bus was empty, no-one else needed the buggy space, the wheelchair space or any of the 4 priority seats. The driver also added "Plus, Japes will always move as needed no matter how much shopping she may have. I've seen it happen. And she's getting off at the next stop!!"

    And lo!! not only did he manage to stop the bus close to the kerb on my roundabout stop, he carefully lowered the bus so I could get off easily with the trolley. (Which, um, wasn't as heavy as it looked - most of it was new duvet.) There was a win - 90% of all drivers hate that stop, rarely stop near the kerb, or lower the bus if they do, and about 1 in 5 journeys include the "Will they/won't they stop?" moment. Every single time they stop round the corner or refuse to stop at that stop is reported and I will say it's got a lot better since I started doing that.

    Soooo, I woke up at 7.6 which is pretty much what I went to bed on.. Subtracting 15% as I happen to know my Mobile reads higher than a calibrated NHS standard issue... (Between libre's at the moment.)
    After walking the hound, 6.5.

    Long weekend off.. Especially after the shanagins of Saturday night.

    Will need to keep an eye out for some sneaky lows later I feel.. Spending some quality time with my wife at Bath spa thingy avin a steam.. Looking at the website, the Roman room looks pretty decadent.. ;)

    Slept without my alarm as I've been stable for weeks. Woke to a Libre trace that went high overnight, above 10 and read 8.4 on waking rather than my usual flat line. What the hell? Finger prick said 4.3. So much ado about nothing. It's my first night off checking. I feel good. Here's hoping the Miao Miao arrives soon.

    I'm on holiday. Just finished my third coffee and cream, corrected them with 1 unit of Fiasp and booked Qantas airfares home for my brother's wedding in October. Have a great day everyone.
