    Fbg 5.8

    Temp 36.1

    Thank goodness there was no lightning in the night.

    It is and has been 24.9 C in my bungalow all night despite fans etc on. Outside temperature says 17.8C so I have windows and doors open trying to invite the colder air outside to indoors. But the cold air doesn't want to take up my invitation...

    There is no wind. Everywhere is as still as the grave. Not a leaf moves, nor even a bird is flying...

    Good Morning and 5,9 for me today.

    We were meeting a friends this afternoon for coffee in their garden, weather is looking inclement so it's been postponed until September which seems ages away but isn't, time is racing away.

    So day is mine, no family virtual meal as kids and grandchildren are off camping and Caravaning together, they wanted us to join them but we felt it was too soon and risky. I suspect we will get lots of video calls though.

    Bike ride or not is now the question of my day.

    Make the best of the ticking minutes that you can. keep safe.

    4.8 this morning. So lovely that it is cooler. We could do with some rain but it seems to be avoiding us here.

    Brilliant - between the devil and the deep blue sea - I bet you had a whale of a time doing that, in Wales.

    Bah, humbug from me, cooler and fresher but I am pleased for all you who struggled with the warmish and humid weather. Fbg of between 3.9 and 4.2 depending on device used to scan. Probably higher irl but maybe not. Went low in the night but no symptoms and surely must help the average. After a year of changes I would like a couple of fixed points of good results as a starting point for dealing with T2/diet puzzle. The period between about 6.00 am and 9.00 am - breakfast - seems to be the issue. I don't want food/extra cals if I can avoid it. The next A1c is important for "the project". Good to see you are about @jjraak - I was wondering where you were; @Krystyna23040 hope 16 hrs fast goes well - I gave a hug for soup of any kind, I'm sure yours is/was classy. Last 2 days we had the youngest grandchild, today I probably have the oldest to myself. No secret he is closest to me and will be almost totally self managing. Julie is off to "home" area to help MIL have her house valued. She (MIL) has never done that - she may be moving into this area. Double edged sword that. MIL at over 90 will need to be watched/helped and we and boys are here. Does mean I am anchored here for a while - alters what I do with this place. Renovate to sell asap or for our comfort? . Toodle pip old beans.

    Good morning everyone from a mithering morning in the dark and dangerous north.
    The wonder wheel of eating out and a large bowl of mussels came in at 4.6 this am.

    My eyes are not that good this morning - all dry and gritty. Squirted some anusol into them, or was it visco tears difficult to read the label. Still not as clear as they could be - all sticky and blury bits.

    So, keep it simple stupid. Quick sketch - make some koffy.

    Hug for the eye problems, winner for even attempting some art and although simple there are some fine lines put down.

    Thanks for comments on my root painting.

    @gennepher your Morning art creation is fascinating, the stuff of dreams and a creative imagination. I am enjoying the darkness it emanates and the colours you have added reds and greens reaching for the light source.

    Might be a simple drawing as you say, but it is effective... @dunelm

    Always good to do that daily art work even if you have a job seeing the screen...

    I have a bedside drawer with 3 partitions. First one is dry mouth and throat stuff which includes tubes and sprays and dry mouth pastilles. Second partition is nose and breathing stuff eg Bricanyl and nose spray. Third and last partition is eye stuff which is Vita-Pos eye ointment (with vit A) for night time (and it is like looking through a sheet of Vaseline) and this metal tube is slimmer than the day time eye gel which comes in a plastic tube, and there are single vials, and there are eye sprays too. These are all prescription stuff. I have to make sure the right thing is in the right partition.

    I have never made a mistake yet.

    Several years ago I read about someone who put a tube of superglue next to her eye ointment...wasn’t pretty. So I never have any glues in my bedroom.

    Enjoy your coffee...
