    Good morning all. I had a fasting reading of 5.6 this morning after a 5.5 at bedtime last night. I hope all the poorly people will feel much better soon.

    Morning all

    5.1 for me this morning.

    Summer is back down here im afraid guys, and it sounds like it's stopped off in Seville on the way.

    T' Internet back up for now but I think the lectric siesta Moshe referred to lasted about 22 hours yesterday. ......:rolleyes:

    Ho hum, if that's all I got to worry about must be a lucky chappy I guess..:)

    Morning troops

    8.1 fasting.

    Not a great week. Too much work too little exercise. Too many bad carbs and too much wine. Figures speak for themselves and with blood ketones of 0.1 it's going to be a brutal start the the fat fast on monday.

    Hussah!

    6.1 this morning, up from 5.6 yesterday. Forgot to take one of my meds last night, which is probably why it's up.

    Morning ya'll :-D
    A late measured 5.7 FBG, after a 5.1 yesterday around 9pm, which was followed by a deliberate debauchery with loads of home roast peanuts individually dipped in freshly ground rock salt, plus a whole tub of blueberries with generous double cream and Turkish yog! Wow and yummy :)
    [BIT A TIME PASSED BY...]
    5.5 before lunch, feel very hungry, hafing a bit of a headache and my BP has slightly raised, probably due to another weather front change in the area...:-/
    Off to an afternoon shift, duh...
    Oh, I started using AccuChek Mobile, absolutely brilliant, no fuss, no mess, no strips, yayyy ;-)
