    good morning all :)

    4.5 for me today

    looking a bit grey this morning but at least it's not wet ;)
    I'm going to have a go at sorting out some of my yarn stash today... maybe :)
    must be absorption by osmosis of all the downsizing or moving posts ;) it definitely needs a good tidy and perhaps a bit of a pruning :sorry:

    Hope your Monday treats you kindly :)

    5.2 this morning from 4.1 last night. When I was on insulin 4.1 was a dangerous level to go to bed with but now I am not on insulin it's ok.

    Back to work this morning but a relaxing 6hrs instead of my normal 10 hrs on a Monday. Will have time to read Saturdays 'I' newspaper in the cafe at the nearby garden centre.

    Spoke to daughter this morning - they all really enjoyed the weekend and wished they could have stayed longer.

    I do hope that you feel a lot better very soon. Migraines are really horrible. I am sure you will find a good home for the 100%.

    He is an only child and just like his dad functions best when he has some time to do his own thing on his own.

    Still it is only a week, Switzerland indeed is an amazing place (we visited two years ago) and he is with friends, plus they will be visiting some amazing places starting with some ice caves today. I am sure he will have a great time.

    He loves it there. His happy place. And it's a very special birthday so thought it would be a good idea. He has been in training for the past 6 months walking around and around... his front room! He intends to walk everywhere in Norfolk.

    It did sound like a lovely weekend and the pleasure it gave you is well reflected in your fbg.
    You’ve done amazingly well: getting such great levels is a feat on its own but especially as you’ve come off insulin too - have you managed such good control just by diet? ( sorry if there is info in your signature - I use the app and can’t see that bit)

    Hugs for the migraine, I used to suffer terribly with them and well remember how debilitating they were, also the ‘bruised brain’ feeling that lasted a couple of days afterwards.
    I’ve no idea what my triggers were but I don’t seem to get them recently. I have heard you can grow out of them so maybe I did. Hope you do too, but such a shame you can’t have a teeny bit of chocolate.

    Morning All. 6.0 this morning which will do. Said goodbye (for now) to eldest son yesterday evening who is flying to Dublin on Friday to start his new job and new life. I was remembering when I left Ireland to come to London in 1983 to be with my now husband. It was very difficult mainly because my little brother who was only 12 at the time and I were extremely close and he sobbed against me in the car to the ferry. That was hard. These days everyone travels around so much more that it doesnt seem such a big deal to move to Europe. He is 28 and it is a good career move and a new adventure. Lots of my friends are predicting he will meet the love of his life there, as his Dad did. Already about to book flights for a weekend to see him in August.
    @Bubbsie hope all goes well at the anti coag clinic.@pavlosn glad your son has arrived safely and I’m sure he will adapt to his rooming and have a great time.
    @jjraak like wise good to know you’re safely there. Great BG but holidays really agree with you. Come to think of it it does me too. Keep posting.
    Have a great Monday if you can. Batten down the hatches for some.Stay well, stay safe.

    He'll have a fabulous time in Dublin PM...mind you I am biased here my family are Dubliners...nowadays it's just a hop skip & a jump to get there...and wonderful to have a reason to visit Ireland more often...off to clinic shortly hoping to extend my appointments...but INR levels are so difficult to control...far more whimsical than my diabetes.
