    Nice dog. The laminate flooring & puppy paws will be an interesting mix, regarding traction... :)

    Morning y'all, 3.9 waking, no glucose and sat at 4.8 and rising whilst the bolus kicks in :) 4.5u this morning as 5u seems too much with a drop mid morning, the Libre reader says my average glucose is 6.7 at the moment so I'm getting my head round the differences I've found using Tresiba.
    Another plus for the Libre is the ease of testing at work as it's hard to get blood from fingers outside in the cold, that could be a nightmare in days gone by and waste the odd test strip so has cheered me up :)

    @Cumberland That little dog does look rather fun and cute.

    Bloods all down in the low 4's which is fine however expecting spike round 11:00ish which again is OK.

    Have Libre DSN 6 month review tomorrow which will be interesting I'm hoping my HB1Ac will be lower.

    On a side note I got a brand new turntable which I set up and connected to my existing AV setup and it sounds great so I'm listening to stack of LP's from the late 70's and 80's including The Smiths :joyful::hilarious:

    Good morning all
    Sensor change last night, new one had been soaking for 24 hours so pretty spot on from the beginning :) BUT (there is ALWAYS a but) BGs wouldn't come down from 10 before bed, didn't want to rage bolus so left it over night. Woke to an 11, no alarms which is weird....corrected with breakfast and now on a 10.6. Now I will start to rage bolus to get it down into single figures.

    @Cumberland I meant to say AMAZING and not Amazon lol......bleeding auto-correct on phones!

    Morning all, bloods decent 5s all night, whoop.
    Cumbs, I’d have wanted to take the puppy back to bed for a cup of tea too, though too cold out to dry a washed duvet.

    I just assumed you were some sort of super cool person who knew all the latest words to use to indicate membership of this group.

    Morning all,

    new sensor last night, accuracy isn't too bad, so pleased with that. Fairly uneventful night blood sugar wise. After I told my blood sugar yesterday that I loved it when it was boring it decided to respond by taking a trip up to the 10s, this is such a difficult relationship! But that was sorted out, and now it's behaving.
