    Excellent news Ian.
    As the years free of an active tumour stack up the relief mounts.

    Well done on good result, may you feast with a clear conscience and not guilt trip tomorrow.
    , blood sugars tomorrow can be confined to the bin.

    Good morning,

    Fbg at 7am was 5.3
    Had somewhat of a restless night, I can't sleep well if it's too hot.
    Oh well, off for my morning walk!
    Enjoy your day everyone

    No FBG test kit is still in France.
    Sorry everyone have missed pages of posts.
    Thank you for all the supportive messages.
    Still stunned at how quickly events changed.
    Will be in UK for a while now, staying with Mum. Then diverse other relatives.
    Seems suitable food is difficult to find. It at least in Mums kitchen. Christmas cake anyone?

    @ianpspurs no I definitely did not walk the whole 25 miles x 2 yesterday. Just walking along the path through the sand dunes was actually quite tiring.

    Fbg...not taken again because not much sleep, so I am not wasting the strips...

    Creative today...
    I need more colour in my life...
    I picked out the orange acrylic painted sheet in my sketchbook.
    Drew silver birches with a black sharpie pen. Then pastel pencils...

    Where's Popeye? So, I had to add him!
    Much better!

    Take care.
    Find some positives in the day. They have to be there somewhere. Change your mindset if you have to. I am talking about me, not anyone else. That is why I didn't get much sleep last night...now I have to set my plan in action...coffee first...

    Thanks for the pic compliment @jjraak

    Well, I am not sure I have ever eaten mackerel...
    J always said, never eat mackerel, they are bottom feeders on the ocean floor, and eat all the cr4p and rubbish...

    At school in Domestic Science (in the late 1950's) we were taught wifely activities...and one of them was to skin and gut a whole fish. I still remember that experience in full detail...that might have been a mackerel...
