    Thank you, but still problems on the processor front. Don’t think they will be solved. But I did typewrite everything out and asked it to be placed on the files...

    Cornwall has been amazing each time I have been.
    Looks like you are really enjoying it!
    Have fun!

    Poor cat! She was very good!

    I have almost never encountered so much rain when driving, flooded roads, flooded fields, almost nil visibility. Yet my friend who lives 10 miles away as the crow flies had no rain at all!?!

    There are still technological problems with processor and app to control it, which don’t appear to be able to be resolved any time soon...

    Disappointing...

    Thank you for your good wishes.
    I am now safely home and dry...and tired...

    They don’t seem to have an answer to the problems with the processor. They say the technology is still very new and not ironed out yet...

    So disappointed but not surprised.

    Hope you and KittenCat have had a good day

    Oh what a shame it’s still not sorted. After such a horrible journey it would have been so nice to have a good outcome. Disappointing seems like a massive understatement.

    I will probably be a bit quiet for a few days. Then investigate online what I can do on this, if anything. How can I get the best out of this? Maybe talk to a few people. I just want to sleep at the moment, but I am over tired, and then wake up and start the day afresh tomorrow...frustrated is a better word on this...

    Just to say a sincere thank you for the supportive comments I have received today. They were really appreciated. Neither my OH or myself have any other siblings, have already lost our other 3 parents and have no family of our own so it is important for mum to see us as much as possible. A cousin of mine has kindly visited mum a few times to give us a much needed break but we still visit mum every day. It makes a big difference to know that others understand and are good enough to take the time to offer support, especially when you have problems of your own to deal with. You are all very kind.:)

    Thursday started with a 6.8. Not great but i am ok. Last night was salad with a small piece of salmon but later in the night i had some yogurt which I think is better avoided in evenings. Oh, and to go with salmon i had two glasses of Sauvignon Blanc ... a nice one from Chile!! Anyway all that led to 6.8 in the morning. Does wine impact numbers- never fully understood the relationship!

    Breakfast was eggs, a few veggies, a whole wheat toast and some plain yogurt with one wedge of apple chopped in. BG numbers are ok after two hours. About 7.5.

    I do seem to feel hungry right after a meal but it gets better after an hour or so. Is this something to be expected with moderate low carb WOE? My carbs in breakfast @ 7:30 am were probably 20g.. I don’t feel full right away and a bit peckish but by 9:30 or so I feel ok. Not sure what is going on.

    Have a great Thursday everyone

    5.2 this morning, we lost a pear tree to the storms so I have clear that up. Luckily it missed everything in its fall so it will just be a chainsaw job. Shame though as it was a lovely tree and the pears had just started forming.

    6.1 this morning. Lack of walking or excess of chocolate a couple of days ago seem to have pushed me out of the 5s. One can never take one’s eye off the ball for a second it seems.
    I’m driving to Plymouth with middle daughter today - she is transferring her mental health nursing degree there so she can live with us in Cornwall. She’s meeting her tutor and wants to check out travelling times, parking etc. It’ll be a trip down memory lane for me as Mr C and I both studied at Plymouth (Poly as it was then, before it got an inflated sense of importance and became a university) 40yrs ago. I’m looking forward to seeing it again.
    @Shas3 I also find that lag effect after eating and before I feel full. If I’m not careful I’ll just have ‘a bit more’ and carry on until I realise I’ve had way too much and am now uncomfortable full. I have to tell myself before a meal that this before me is a portion. Wait 1/2 hr - 1hr or so and then, as you said I feel fine.
    Re wine I find a glass or 2 of red or a g&t will often give lower fbg but white wine, even dry white is naturally a bit sweeter and doesn’t always have this effect.

    Morning all. Had a few naughty beers last night. Think I'll try the brand which claims "all the sugar turns to alcohol". 2nd thought. Why not try no beer?

    FBG 7.0 at 06.30 today.

    Off to an exam board conference. Two days with lunchtime buffets, but should be alright in the evening restaurant. Have a great day everyone.
