    8.0 This morning -- first time I have tested at all in a while - trying desperately to get back on track - so a starting point - not great but it is what it is.

    Welcome to the forum @Julie black. 6.5 isn't bad for a fasting bg reading. My average fbg is around 6.5, but usually in 5s later in the day.

    7 at 7 - oh woe is me! Final week before hand-in so I guess stress might be playing a part in this - or Dawn maybe.

    last night before bed : 5.5. One of the lowest readings in a while.

    6.3 this morning. Not bad and not unhappy but was expecting (hoping rather!) that it would be below 6!!! But alas...

    Anyway Sunday.... happy Sunday everyone

    6.1 at 0615hrs. Yet another miserable, chilly, wet morning - I’ve forgotten what the sun looks like. Some warmth wouldn’t go amiss.
