    Happy Australia Day Everyone......we are going out to lunch today. Saw the doctor yesterday as I needed a new script for my meds. She put me on the slow release kind, just taking two at night. It will be interesting to see what it does. Didn't get up till 10am and was 6.4.

    Have a great day!

    5.7 after a day of high readings for me yesterday, upto 8.0 at one stage, the cold that has been lurking has now come out with a vengeance, hopefully this goes some way to explain yesterday's readings.

    We shall see, keep well everyone.

    4.8 :D yay new record low for me - must be the smaller portions and non-processed food lol. I did start a new tub on arrival here (same batch) but it's responded as expected in general so no reason to doubt the reading - and no I didn't retest to check ;)

    Well, a 5.0 for me this morning. On the basis I've had a day or so of raised readings, and I'm now on a new tub and lot of strips, I didn't retest.

    Whilst you may be thinking, "not too shabby", in context for me, last I saw anything with a leading 5 was on 27th February 2014, 3 months post-diagnosis. I'm possibly a bit underlying stressed, with all that's going on, but I've done all this before since diagnosis, without a blip in my scorers, so I'll just have to keep an eye on things. I ate later than normally last night, and I may have had some extra cauliflower, because it had to go, but I doubt that would account for the rises I've seen.

    Oh well. It's recorded, and I'll test as normal and see how it all looks by the weekend, by which time I should be settling in the sunshine.

    Have a good day playmates. It looks quite nice out there this morning.
