    Twice a day. I've kept the morning does the same, because the loss of effectiveness is swallowed up by adjustments for food intake, so it doesn't matter as much. But when I get a gentle overnight peak in the low sevens from 7 units, for the first two weeks of a new levemir pen, it's very frustrating when it starts creeping higher. 8 is now having more or less the same effect.

    It's interesting how much easier it is to see this effect with libre.

    Morning all, it's go get goose day. I'm going try my hand at some LC biscuits, need to find the recipe first..... then on my bike.
    Madam rose to 5.5 this morning which is only just about acceptable because of the little bits of stollen Mr B kept tempting me with.
    As a thought, how much water does everyone drink? Does drinking more make you feel/look better?

    Morning all. Rain, rain and I think a bit more rain to come later.
    Novorapid has been a bit slow first thing the last few mornings, 1hr+ before any action. Today , thought I’d play it crafty, do a 45 min pre bolus. Yep, 3.8 from 8.7 within 20 mins which meant a change of breakfast plans.
    Nice to see people getting ready for Christmas Day. Quiet day planned for us, the grandkids are at “ the other” grandparents :(:(. Christmas Day planned in for Thursday, so not in any rush at the moment.
    May everyone’s plans for the day go nice and smooth. Remember stress = high bloods. And take care out there.......
    IT IS RAINING!!!!!,

    Yes, that certainly is the advantage of the continuous readings. Does the manufacturer of levemir (Nordisk) have anything to say about the loss of effectiveness ?

    @therower, not here it isn't! We were meant to have heavy showers this morning but none yet, so I've been for a long walk with my dog and a friend. Woke up at 7.1, forgot to check 2 hours after breakfast but 6.1 after walking so I'm feeling smug (until it all goes wrong because I've tempted fate/got the wrong colour socks/it's Sunday etc etc etc) ;)

    Morning all
    I’ve only been partially present for the last week as Christmas has taken over.

    Glad to read about @Mel dCP eyes, interested to read about @Scott-C “artistic women”, see the progress of @Cumberland dog and the rest of the news.

    BG has been a little up and down. At the start of the week it was very up. I assumed this was due to lack of spin, gym and climbing. Turns out I was kind of right: for 4 days, I had been on my spin basal profile. I hadn’t realised because it was labelled “Weekend”.
    Back to semi normality now. Only semi because still no spin, gym or climb as I am at the out-laws now. I may venture out for a little run this arvo if I have time. Mainly to stretch my legs, get some fresh air and get some time to myself. The exercise bit is secondary (or is that “forthinary”?

    Work over for a while, holiday cottage Wi-Fi worked out, walked round botanic gardens hunting red squirrels and have read Sunday paper magazines. However, forgot to pack the gifts from Father Christmas - Hope the lie about him having delivered them to home works. I am a bad mother. I am now cringing every time child mentions Santa or anyone asks her if she is excited.

    If it's a gift to Santa, you would always buy something like a nice bottle of vino, so that he can ejoy it when he's relaxing after his rounds, then you could probably make it disappear, somehow, after the big event?

    @Diakat . Oops :banghead::banghead::banghead: Everything else sounds good though. I’m sure Santa can somehow be blamed for delivering to the wrong address.
    Have a great Christmas.:)

    Isn't the usual story of wonderment regarding Santa finding kids. "You got a chip in yer head. He'll track you." ;)

    I normally use the "chariots of the gods" angle when my niece tracks the big guy's progress on an iPad app.. :)

    Not this one.. But I quite like the look of it. Adds a bit do danger to FC's mission.? :cool::nailbiting:

    "NORAD’s Mission
    "We have the watch."
    The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is a United States and Canada bi-national organization which defends the homeland through aerospace warning, aerospace control, and maritime warning for North America. Aerospace warning includes the monitoring of man-made objects in space, and the detection, validation, and warning of attack against North America whether by aircraft, missiles, or space vehicles, through mutual support arrangements with other commands."

    Gosh, I hope he don't spark some international incident....! ;)
