    The Horror. The Horror. No, not a low carbs diet but the current BBC "Future PM" show. We are failing our young people while these fake politicos strut their little hours upon the stage. Other countries must be truly aghast, that the nation of Peel, Gladstone, and Disraeli has come this low.

    My blood glucose seems a bit trivial, compared with national humiliation.

    I was told there was about an 18-!month waiting list for an apartment in the little town, so I thought OK, a year and a half to downsize and save up for the move.

    Today I got a call -- guess what, we have a vacancy now! Think about it tonight and call me in the morning to let me know whether you want it.

    Yes I do. But NOW? My moving savings are about a year and a half short of funds. Wish I could just load up the KittenCat, my guitar, my toothbrush, and call Uber.

    Having read a little about the candidates just now, I'm sort of in sympathy with Boris if he really wants to withhold the £39 billion payment. Facing a move myself without seemingly insufficient funds, I can understand about wanting to retain money until there is "greater clarity about the way forward."

    Wish he could lend me one half of one millionth of that billion!

    But as to what other countries think of it all, I read the first line as to what "blue cross" meant and all I could think of was the huge US insurance company, Blue Cross Blue Shield. :D

    Watched tonight's debate where boris was guest speaker!!! Honestly, over 70 million people in our country and it's down to these 5. Rory looked like he was on something. Could only watch for 10 minutes. Didnt like the format. Presenter didn't let them get a word in edgeways. Same old same old that we have been hearing for 3 years. Bored now, get on with it. Do what you get paid for.

    I don’t have a television so I have no idea what is unfolding. I cannot hear the radio with being deaf.

    Yes, I have my phone so I can text and go online, and look stuff up, but I have absolutely no desire to in this case. I don’t look at news, news blackout here.

    I have this absolutely horrid feeling that this clown with a mop of unruly hair, who has said so many horrid things about different parts of the country, and managed to offend Liverpool in 2004 is about to be prime minister...

    I didn’t think it would be possible....
    So another clown on the world stage...
    It must be the millennia for rediculousosity....
    I despair...

    I am awake in the middle of the night, 1 am, because I cannot sleep. It is the night of a thousand years. I am sleeping no more than 30 to 40 minutes in one go. And each time I go to sleep for 30 or 40 minutes, when I wake up I think I have slept the night through.

    And then I look at the clock.

    It’s not like I am tossing and turning. I’m not. I don’t feel ill. I am not stressed over anything. Apart from when I opened my eyes just now and pulled the light cord, I see what looks like a harvester spider directly above my head and she has built this amazing spider web cradle....NOOOOOO

    I managed to wrap it in its own web with my crutch, opened window, but it was crawling back up my crutch...so I sent my crutch flying into the garden and shut window. Maybe I woke the neighbours, but I couldn’t hear it anyway...

    So took my blood glucose reading out of interest 7.8. I have never been as low as 7.8 in the middle of the night, it’s usually just into double figures.

    Made a cuppa and peeked in here. Cuppa finished, checked ceiling and no spiders...

    Am pulling the covers over my head just in case...

    I hope you are all having an amazing night’s sleep...see if I can join you...

    Ditto. We had a massive storm. Now quiet but I’m awake anyway.

    Morning 5.4 for me but that was about an hour ago. Probably higher now. I too am up far to early - I woke needing the loo and tried to sneak out without waking Dennis but failed - now he is up so I am too.
    Hugs to all the insomniacs and especially @gennepher - your awakening is the stuff of nightmares for me. ( however it’s obviously good for your fbg!) The thought of opening my eyes and seeing a spider directly above me actually prevents me shutting my eyes at times. I think you did remarkably well using the crutch to bung it out of the window - will you be able to walk ok to retrieve it?
    @SaskiaKC oh no! that really has thrown a spanner in the works. Could you pay a small deposit and ask to reserve an apartment for 18m time? It would be awful to lose the place you’d set your heart on after all your research and planning.
    @Viv19 are you still visiting your dad? Change of routine always plays havoc with my bg levels.

    5.6 this morning and I'm ready for an early start. I have to go into the city again and the last time stressed me out but this time my neighbour said he will drop me off as it's on his way to work. I have to leave earlier as a result but there is a cafe I can go visit nearby. Adventures galore! Enjoy the day :)

    Lots of disturbed sleep seems to be the theme today. Disastrous 6.2 when i carried out my annual birthday check. Probably linked in with several joints being wholly sub optimal and weekly weighin marginally up (still bmi of 22.2). Filling up with protein lasted 2 days and is the obvious candidate. Given the choice between hungry and tired or immobile the former wins. May try again later in the year but today is naproxen and tea day - also sure I must return to the avoidance of coffee . 2 viewers today so need to be mobile enough to help Julie dress the set. As a balance to that I know I am blessed to have only these issues and to have had 64 years - many don't. I have plenty of forebears whose lives were cut short fighting for their country or by illnesses - in a few cases the very illness they specialised in treating. My food choice problems would seem like a choice of banquets for much of the world. I also had the priceless gift of being born into a hugely loving extended family and marrying someone who is a perfect foil for my foibles File under 1st world problems and sense of perspective,
