    Certainly am, it's one of the reasons I came here to live in Australia. I lived in a regional town for twenty years called Mt. Isa and the forecast temp there today is 42°of nice dry heat.

    It was pretty hot on the bowling green at the club yesterday though, nice to get a cold drink though.

    Bit late posting today as we went to Hereford for the day. 5.7 @ 06.23 so still within the bounds of so called normality ;) I wonder what the result of my HbA1c taken last Tuesday will be: I'm assuming it's not too bad as the surgery haven't phoned me to complain!:nailbiting::nurse:

    Hope you managed to get everything done so you can sleep properly tonight. It’s horrible when your mind won’t shut off.

    Thanks for asking, I did.
    As dawn slowly creeped up, I felt so anxious...sleep deprivation and I never do the tango:inpain:.
    I should be heading up in the next half an hour.
    I am already nodding off.
    Today was murder.
    I was sleepy all day, and I needed my wits around me.

    5.5 today - not great on its own and where it usually goes next is hugely disappointing. Probably just have to roll with it for now and contain the damage.
