    @ianpspurs I bought a handful of cherries yesterday and just now I was Googling the nutrition info on them. One site says they lower the risk of gout attacks as well as being good for diabetics, and helping people sleep.
    Plus these are delicious.

    0500 - rain - what was the point of all that garden watering yesterday evening - it’s a good bit of rain too. Still warm, very warm.

    The wonder wheel of very flat flatlines during the night produced a 4.9 on waking - it’s 5.3 now, 20 minutes later.

    Bin day - best get them out.
    Have a marvelous day if you can.

    Good morning folks, 5.9 on the testing dice, quite a storm last night, the thunderclap that woke me must have been right overhead, I sat and watched the lightning play for about an hour. Tired and grumpy now.

    6.9 now, 6.8 last night.
    Feeling overwhelmed and irritated by electronic gadgets that come with useless instructions or non at all. I’m not usually so inept. Why should I have to search through YouTube for user info??????

    Morning All. 5.7 today and already too hot. Off to hospital at 7am for my latest eye injection. Hope the heat doesnt increase chance of infection which is always my main concern. At least should be home by 10am. Rest of the day will be eyes closed, on sofa, curtains drawn, fan nearby, lots of water, cats if they can stay cool and listening to the comings and goings on the TV.
    Take care in the heat everyone. Its silly season.
    Stay well, stay safe.

    Off to the docs soon, then work. Then this afternoon dog to groomers and me to get hair cut!
    Thanks care & keep as cool as possible.

    @PenguinMum hope eye injection goes well and not too uncomfortable afterwards.

    A very acceptable 5.5 this morning after a very disturbed nights sleep with thunderstorms rumbling on for hours.

    My 13 year old Labrador used to love watching thunderstorms (and fireworks to). Now he just can't be bothered and prefers to snooze. This morning he ran down the stairs and leaped out of the back door. So foot is definitely still ok.

    8.7 at 6am

    I had the curtains open last night to see this thunderstorm and lightning...I love lightning.

    But alas, no lightning outside my bedroom window :)

    I can’t hear the thunderstorms at night with being deaf. But I can see rain on the ground this morning. So plants have been watered. One chore less today.

    7:30 am now and already 23C in my garden according to my garden thermometer in the shade...

    I will be following the cat to find the coolest places...

    Hugs.
    I’ve just got a small cooker and the entire instructions are in Chinese or Mandarin...google translate doesn’t work for that.
    My knowledge of Chinese is numbers up to 10...and that’s it...
    It was on You Tube, but in Chinese, no translation...

    >^••^<

    P.S. I just guessed and it’s working...

    Morning...another difficult day at work yesterday sometimes these large organisations are so inept...positively I saw an old friend at the same venue I haven't see for years we managed a spot of lunch together & she'll be coming down for a visit before the summer is done...sweltering hot in London came out of the building & the heat was overwhelming...headed straight for the car & the air conditioning...had a good drive there & back yesterday until I missed my exit on the M25...urghhh...was exhausted when I finally got home...slept right through the thunder storms...ate badly yesterday so not suprisingly woke to a 7.2

    Morning all been missing in action lately, but my 23rd Annual review yesterday and was expecting a telling off (as usual) as my control has slipped due to a number of reasons, but wasn't expecting the Prof to say "Ok your HB1AC isn't great but at least its stable (62) and your insulin usage hasn't gone up (400iu's a day) so well done!!" I nearly fell off my chair not something I expected but I'll take it. Anyway enough of my shenanigans yesterday a 7.1 was unceremoniously thrown at me this morning, I will take it. Hugs for the eye injection @PenguinMum they are never nice and take care everyone in this heat, plenty of fluids and rest.
