    Well I woke to the nurse giving me my 7am meds this morning and she asked my blood sugar Libre flashes red with 3.2 then refused to take another reading. I slurred to ask for sugary milky tea, was struggling to keep my eyes open. Once the nurse had rushed off to make the drink I woke up and started realising I didn’t feel awful, so asked to check with a finger prick 6.5 that gave me. So cuppa is sat untouched, and I’m coming to the realisation I’ve got a faulty sensor.

    Hi @Fndwheelie - I have had a flat line below 3 all night - just ate a square of chocolate - no change - Will be calling them tomorrow - last time this happened they ran a diagnosis over the phone and sent me a replacement. Away today but if you want to know how I get on tomorrow then do let me know- don’t remove the sensor until you have spoken to them - use finger prick tests.

    Good morning everyone from the little house on the prarie and the prospects of another fine day with the TT’s.

    The wonder wheel of red flat lines and broken promises has been on about 2.5 all night. The consumption of. A small piece of chocolate did not persuade it to budge.

    Will be giving Freestyle a call once I return home this evening - what a nuisance.

    Have a great day if you can. Hugs for the needy.

    good morning all :)

    4.4 today

    the weather is a bit cooler and breezier here this morning so I don't think we'll be eating outside today. I'm planning meatballs baked in a creamy tomato and veg sauce topped with cheese,served with a side salad and cauli/broccolli, mr gee and his mum will have a bit of pasta with theirs ( a little bit ;)).

    We managed to get the raking up done and mr gee says 'scarifying' is next :wtf: I had a sudden vision of me running out into the night shouting boo! :hilarious: but apparently it's heavy raking to try to get some of the moss out in the shadow of the trees before we top up with grass seed :angelic:

    Hope your day treats you well :)

    Morning All from sunny Dublin. 5.0 today yipee! Great what being happy and eating fish can achieve, plus a few G&STs along the way! Planning to go to the coast today before the weather closes in later. Went up town last night and had a pre dinner drink in the beautiful Shelbourne Hotel. Hope you are all good and enjoy Sunday. Last night with my boy, for now. The other boy at home with the girls who are loving it!
    Stay well, stay safe.

    My first Painted Lady of the day, on my raspberry bush. It's wings are directly facing the misty sun. Looks like gentle heat is more important than food. I am inclined to agree. I am swinging gently on my thatched swing, bare legs to soak this gentle sun, and it is soothing.

    I got within a foot of it, but didn't want to go closer to frighten it. Because the air in the garden felt cool and chilly this morning with the smell of Autumn.

    It's refreshing after all the hot days which are too hot for me to garden.

    Just been working on the garden since before 6am.
    It's 9 am now. I am shattered.

    I think I will be eating more food this morning in my 4 hour window I have allocated myself...

    @jjirak. We’ve been lucky with our countries. Only the last one was awful. Most of the others were places that people like to go on holiday. My first country (pre OH) was Thailand for 2 years. I loved it so much that I’ve never gone back. I think it would be a let down, it’s changed so much.
    I picked up the OH in Guyana, small place so you trip over people. Actually that’s not really a holiday destination. Rains a lot, hot, man-eating piranha, caiman and mosquitoes. ;))

    Thanks @SaskiaKC for the insights. Glad that statin works well for you and is helping. Let’s see what the doctor says.. my meeting is likely Wednesday or Thursday. I just want to keep medication as low as possible for as long as possible... but if it os indeed better to give statins a try, I will consider. Thanks again
