    Good morning folks, a 6.6 on the dice, unsettled sleep last night, seems to be a thing at the moment, I think mine was coffee related.

    Fbg 9 this morning at 5am

    It's gone up.

    But I think i forgot to take my evening metformin tablet last night. Last night's reading at around 7pm was 7.1 so I am pretty certain this morning's increase is because I forgot last night's tablet

    Or else it is something completely random...

    There was a certain comedic value to the debate Viv...until you realise whoever wins will be PM....are those candidates really the best we have...depressing.

    It certainly is. Absolutely ridiculous and worrying too.
    Pre-Brexit referendum, just about everything Boris claimed turned out to be untrue. I can’t understand why he is the leading candidate. Unless lying is a necessary requirement for a politician.
    Duh - of course it is.

    It reminded me of an old black & white film...where the public school bullies ruled the establishment because they could...shameful any of them are in the running ...it appears he who shouts loudest &.lies the most will succeed...whoever wins is in for a very difficult time...in some respects I'd like to see Boris Johnson taken to task for his particular brand of arrogance... dishonesty & lack of leadership qualities...he is the very worst of a lacklustre lot...so possibly I'm routing for Boris for all the wrong reasons Viv

    good morning all :)

    4.8 for me today

    Sunny morning again today so far ;)

    Despite a few showers it was a lovely day yesterday weather wise and we managed to squeeze in a visit to mum's , mr. gee's dentists appointment, some shopping, a trip to the dump and a session of strimming :happy: plus I managed to wear something that didn't look like midwinter :hilarious:

    Volunteering today so exercise will be 'shed' laps plus lots of 'housework' ;)

    Hope your day treats you well :)

    The single malt from your boys was a really nice thought. I sometimes feel guilty also when I get given a luxury box of chocolates that I know I will never eat. If you decide to give the wine and single malt away to friends - you will have lots of very happy friends.

    Thank you. Like you, there is paperwork on the go and interviews to attend. There is an apartment that can be lived in for a month in order to see if the arrangement is suitable but she does not fancy that idea.

    5.5 this morning. Last night it was 4.1 when I went to bed so thought it might be in the 4s again - but I suppose it is my body working as it should and providing me with glucose for the morning dog walk.

    We are going to a wedding at a luxury venue in Newmarket today. Have requested a low carb meal. Hopefully it will be. I am taking some cheddar with me just in case it isn't.

    Morning all, a unwanted and unwarranted 9.2 greeted me on the old meter of doom on this overcast morning in the North, suppose its my own fault I had some chocolate with hazelnuts in before bed (it was a shameless act of self indulgence one I will have to live with the consequences ……..oh sorry not bothered it was lovely) and as a result high this morning.



    Take care everyone.

    Enjoy the wedding. I like Newmarket and have been viewing properties in that area. Spiffing Waitrose there.
