    Morning all, lots of hypos happening and some hypers too. It's going to be a blistering hot day today, no work so may go out and about this afternoon. :)
    Rivers deep last night and mountains high this morning, grrrr and testing again very soon.
    Stay safe in this heat, it's nearly the weekend too :happy:

    Same here.. (Not just the coffee.) Got a feeling I forgot my basal last night. Not so much a "rage," more a methodical working back & weghing up.

    I bought myself a new digital micro hi-fi system and it came yesterday afternoon, my other one was second hand, quite old and the radio was getting worse with constant interference. The sound on the new one is fantastic it has CD-MP3-USB- SD, I know what some of them are but not all :oops: I have the two speakers from the old one and I would like to make something out of them, or, better still, ask my son, as he is very creative and has made many household items, his last recycle was his old fridge freezer:wideyed: amazing :happy:

    Morning all, hot hot hot already. Woke up at 4.30, by 5 it was obvious sleep wasn't going to happen again so I've been up since then. Went for a walk at 7 (sooooo easy not to do it whilst I don't have a dog and it's one of the best forms of exercise for me for lots of reasons), watered the pots in the garden, dead-headed some stuff and had to stop due to feeling rather strange, caused by a 3.3. Pah!

    Have a good day all, stay cool and hypo/hyper free if poss (unless of course you've put the wrong socks on)

    Morning all, not ventured downstairs yet. We keep our house cool by keeping surgeons closed on the sunny side and windows open in the shady side and adjusting as the sun goes around. Keeps things surprisingly cool, Mediterranean style! Blackout blinds almost all the way down upstairs, with a three inch gap to allow air flow sorts the upstairs, where we have a flat roof. Letting the sun shine in just makes the house hotter as you’re basically creating a greenhouse effect...

    Not much to report bloods wise, has an alarm at some point with a 4.1 but that was fixed with half an dextrose tablet.

    Sewing club today, the gallery we meet in is always cold, so should be nice. Cardigan on standby!

    Stay cool and level, friends x

    Yep - I'm coming up for the third coffee, and I'm told a hot seitan bacon sarnie is on its way to me any minute now.

    All the windows are open - nice fresh current flowing through. When neighbour opens his sitting room window I will close the side window nearest him. He smokes - a lot - and it wafts from his living room straight through my window!

    I'm going to have a third coffee, just to keep you company.

    I was 5.1 this morning. The jump back to my usual long-acting worked a treat. Woke to find my husband sleeping on the floor. ***???? He said it was cooler down there. It's hot? He's feeling the heat. He's not Australian :).

    Not the best start to the day.
    Hopefully things will level off in the coming hours.

    Was up at 6am again today to take the dog out before it got too hot - again a very pleasant walk, 2 deer and countless rabbits chased - the dog just looked at me as if to say what are you doing?:hilarious:

    Risotto last night so no 5am low today, just a tad too high actually this morning but easily correctable.

    best of luck all in the heat.

    Yep - but if it's frustrating for us, spare a thought for the poor b's on the other end of the phone - doomed to repeat a list of futile questions time after time.... and to deal with the frustrated/irritated customers!
