    8.7 this morning. I've just about come out the other end of the chest cold, cough and mad crazy finishing up work and Xmas parties and am packing to go off to Ireland for 10 days. Hope everyone has a lovely break and see you in the new year. (I'm probably going to be off line until 1st January)

    Morning Folks

    I came home from work last night to find I had to rush off to a hastily arranged Trystees meeting. As a result, I was forced to rush my tea - an already slightly naughty Pork pie and Peas with Lemon Meringue to follow affair, without any wine or apperitifs, and then drive to a colleagues home to meet the others.

    No stress, very pleasant evening actually, but I was also forced to accept a tiny piece of Christmas cake and a home made mince pie, after all, it would be rude not to, right?

    Both of which were extremely pleasant.

    Paid for it later though with a disturbed night, strange dreams and a 6.3 this morning, which, these days is unusually high for me.

    I am still taking just half my prescribed Metformin dose, but with some added supplements, but am wondering if it might be smart to go back to the full dose over the festive period.

    I think I'l just see what the next few results are for now though.

    Well I'm as prepared as i'll ever be!
    Thanks to my 66yr old mum and partner.
    Soooooo excited to see the 8yr old and 2 yr old terrorising our quiet close Christmas Day with Fr Christmas's presents. (Rain permitting.)
    I must admit I had carbs today after fighting with a government body on the telephone. I can now see how alcoholics become addicted. Stress is a killer.
    Anyway I refuse to let them spoil my kid's childhood.
    IT'S CHRISTMAS !!!!!!!!!!
    Happy Christmas everyone. Xxx

    Surprising 4.9 this morning. I did split my usual M3 insulin into 3 doses taken just before eating Was 7.8 before tea, after the christmas pud and an afternoon nibbling Twiglets.
    My sister bless her made a sugar free christmas cake, she used canderel powder instead of sugar and left a portion un-iced for me,
    My first Christmas day as a diabetic went well and I didn't have to say no to anything. Boxing day lunch is going to be a bit of a problem as its going to be cold meat, real fried chips and baked beans.
    Happy New Year everyone.

    Well done - mine was 6.7 which I was pleased about as I decided that I was going to have some Xmas pud as well! FBS 5.5 this morning after having a small piece of pavlova last night - something I used to love but now find way too sweet! Am out to lunch at my brothers today so another day of slight misbehaviour on the eating front!!!
