Thank you Saskia.
6.1 this morning. Happy with that.
5.8 for me have a good day everyone
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,
That was weird, a low bg last night, especially it being a night of a thousand years.
I have two crutches! And still two walking sticks from the days before I needed crutches. So yes I will!!!
But I never gave it a second thought when I slung the crutch out of the window with the spider.....
A more pleasing 5.4 this morning. Another damp grey day here. I do not have a TV so couldn't watch the circus last night. They could perhaps rename these discussions "I don't have a clue, get me in to there"
I am with @gennepher on this and don't want to know what is unfolding unfortunately I am hearing so can't avoid it altogether.
Off to work soon.
Last night got back from work at 10pm absolutely starving so had some stilton cheese. Eating cheese that late in the evening always, without fail, puts my fbs up - but I was so hungry I ate it.
This morning 4.9. So happy. It does look like recent tweaks have really helped.
Husband baked an egg and some wafer thin ham in butter in a ramikin for breakfast. It was so delicious and actually tasted nicer than an egg fried in butter - not sure why. He has promised to make it again.
Difficult call so hope that you are happy with your decision.
My mother in law is looking to move to an independent living apartment and we are hoping that the transition works for her.
Well my morning fbg is still going down.
It is 8.3 this morning at 7am.
I tested it in the night as I was not sleeping properly, and it was 7.8, I think, at 1 am.
I actually find this scary it is going down so fast over the last few days.
I am strict with myself in that I have an eating window of 6 hours. So the rest of the time is a daily 18 hour fast so to speak.
I did try a 4 hour window some months ago, but it didn't appear to work so well. However, there are always a whole pile of other daily stuff which impacts on bg readings.
When I was awake last night making my cuppa tea, I realised I had forgotten to put the chocolate away back in its plastic box. The bare chocolate spoke to me, saying you're having a bad night, a piece of me will comfort you. But I looked at it and said, no way, my bg is 7.8, and if I have even a tiny little taste of you, that is going to spoil my next reading. So the chocolate gave a big sigh...and I went back to bed with just a cuppa tea...
Morning all from a wet Northeast (its more like the winter than summer) a score of 6 greeted me today, which I will take. Hospital appointment yesterday to see (pun intended) the eye specialist (again) as I have had a bit of a complication with my cataract surgery!! It seems like I will be having another operation on my eye, but I'm going to delay it as long as possible as I don't really fancy spending an hour with some one rummaging around in my eye whilst I'm awake!! Ah well it never rains sometimes it sodding pee's it down!!
Take care everyone.
Hugs over this.
There is never a right time for anything. And even if it is inconvenient/almost impossible, I always find the right time is now.
I hope you find a solution for this. There will be a solution somewhere, somehow.
Once when I sold my house, on the very day I put it up for sale, and the buyers wanted to move in very quickly. I said I was unable to sort and pack up in time. It was an old 13 roomed Edwardian house where I had brought up my children and so was absolutely filled with stuff. The buyers said you can leave everything behind if you want, we are happy to have it all. So I cleared out important personal stuff, loaded my car with 10 cats in baskets (I had 10 cats at the time), the dog, my paper 25mm photographs I had taken over the years, my favourite feather pillows, and personal paperwork and writing. And some clothes! And I handed over the keys and drove off into the sunset.
It was actually very therapeutic to do that. But I am a collector and hoarder, and I have collected and hoarded again....
I am sure when you wake up in the morning you will have some ideas.
Good luck x
Just a question to anyone on here...what would you take from your house/flat/where you live if you had to move quickly, and had to make a decision what to leave behind? What would you load your car or taxi with?
Another 6.9 this morning.. I continue my fight
I have always lived simply, my rule was that if it couldn't all fit in my car in one go I got rid of it. Now I don't have a car but all I need is my computer and clothes, all my books are now digitized. Never been a collector
Thanks @Bildad We are aiming to move closer to our sons and grandchildren who have little chance of affording anything in this area. The No 10 location looks likely to produce something that makes Years and Years look wildly optimistic so I feel the urge to hug my grandchildren tight and apologise for my generation as we have royally messed up and they will undoubtedly suffer.
Reportedly, the EU are going to ban the use of words like “burgers” and “Sausages” for vegan food products and replace them with the more descriptive terms “discs” and “tubes”. I expect that a good number of vegans will be quite pleased about this as it just might discourage the manufacture of trashy fake vegan food.
I thought that I was watching an ageing boy band last night, “Eaton Mess and the Bus Drivers Boy” but it all ended in a shambolic hubbub of quotes from last years newspapers. Wonder if this rippled through time, a butterfly effect if you like, disturbing some peoples sleep.
Anyhow, the wonder wheel of instant gratification and scaremongering delivered a 4.1 this morning. Could this be because I left my phone in the bathroom last night and the wake to reading time was very narrow.
Birthday week wishes to @ianpspurs and all the best with dressing the house. If you run out of naproxen, I have a few in my stash.
Thanks for the offer of naproxen but we have plenty and plenty of tea to swill them down with. Great fbg today sir and take care in the dark and dangerous north beyond the edge of the known world
What a night you had gennepher!! I sympathise with the horrible spider awakening- that’s enough to banish sleep for days (or nights). Hate them. The storm that woke me was insignificant compared to that!
The debate between the bumblers last night could either be soporific due to the content and pathetic self-agrandisement or keep us awake for hours worrying about letting lose yet another twit to join the orange faced moron on the world stage. What has happened to the intelligent people? Is that that really all there is on offer? Scary stuff.
such a shame that she didn't acknowledge there was a serious problem. We have all done it - it is so easy to 'bury our heads in the sand ' but usually it doesn't result in such disastrous consequences.
