    Does it help any if I say it is just a number? Thought not - BUT it sure as heck doesn't make it worse.:) Take the hug and move on.

    5.3 at 8:30. Slipped into the 5s from the 4s since being off Jardiance for six days but as I was only diagnosed in July I think that's acceptable!

    7.7 this morning. Disappointing as Sunday morning I was 6.2. But I'm still working out exactly what foods give me spikes and I can't quit the late-night eating habit so it was only fasting 8 hours. Early days!

    The story doing the rounds today is of a possible 4.8 fbg - the real level can go up as well as down once scientists have access to a proper sample. Enjoy your day.

    6.6 at 0645hrs - but restless night as a result of the dreaded backache. Know I’m getting old(er) but didn’t think it would happen this quickly

    Huge sympathy @Ally Pally My wife has bad back issues an needs lots of pain killers in order to sleep. Old age and body wear and tear is fascinating. Currently, 88 year old MIL is with us having undergone a knee replacement. Over the last 4 years she has had both hip replacements replaced and now this. Still lives on her own, drives and goes around demonstrating the process of taking a fleece through to spinning and knitting. Plenty of hope for ya.

    Thanks on her behalf. She looks a dead ringer for Leitia Cropley and has some similar recipes - home brew demon as well. Survived breast cancer and lost her husband within 2 years over 35 years ago. Saw her eldest daughter die of breast cancer - tough 'un. Her mum lived to 99 and could put away an amazing amount of whisky.
