    Morning 5.6 at 8.35, lazy bones, though good nights sleep certainly makes a difference.

    Before yesterday I was so proud of myself when I hit the 5s, but now - deflated! I’ve decided to carry on as before since I felt ‘good’ and never had any problems (apart from this damned illness). My eyesight had improved (even needed to get new, weaker prescription glasses last week), I’d lost some weight and I personally thought I’d made progress since being diagnosed last November. Thanks for your supportive comments - greatly appreciated. Awrabest to you too.

    5.2 @ 4.40 - bg control is obviously not my strong point but nothing alarming. Bumbling along really. Have a spiffing day - UK Winter Solstice.

    6.1 at ridiculous o’clock. It’s Schulsylvester (last day of school) and tradition is that kids are up early, wandering about with whistles, cowbells, pot lids, drums - anything that makes a noise. Ringing doorbells and running away is another favourite. Siesta on cards for me this afternoon!
