Yes a lovely little place, would have stayed a few days there if my pockets were deeper.
6.2 this morning and more computer work to be done today. I'm rebuilding my old pc and all the new parts are due this afternoon, but before then I have to set up a FB business page and Instagram account for another neighbour. Enjoy the day
Morning all 5.7 and a gtreat day here for an early Mountain bike ride.
6.3 for me have a good day everyone
You must have looked gorgeous!
When I was a child and lived in Kent for awhile, there were Swallowtail butterflies every summer on the Iceplants my mother grew.
Fbg is 7 this bright and sunny morning.
Cat is sunbathing behind the window.
Coffee for me....
5.6 this morning which was bright and sunny until the moment I went to step out of the door. Then the heavens opened!
@trick60 lovely photos again.
@gennepher your fbg levels are really coming down - brilliant. Are you still eating most of your food in the morning?
@HarrisonK that sounds like the worse day ever to me - I’m hopeless at computer stuff so thank goodness there are people like you about. Your neighbours are lucky to have you around.
5.2 this morning, again no insulin, but within an hour I’d climbed to 7.1 before breakfast. As I’m out all day today I couldn’t wait till I’d come down for breakfast so gonna be really high in a couple of hours. I wonder if DP and Foot on the Floor syndrome are things for non diabetics also.
Computer days are my favourite days, our little community is mostly older people and I've dragged many of them kicking and screaming into the 21st century. We have an informal 'silver surfers' group now and they can certainly teach their grandkids a thing or two. Our newest project is creating a file sharing network for the Cookery club members. Great fun
Morning All. My bad run of FBG enters another week 7.3. Today I have longstanding meet with friends for lunch at the pub so hope they will agree to serve me a side salad and a glass of water! I do have lots of housework to do today so that might help I suppose. Tomo back to Kent but only to take friend to hospital and set up a bed downstairs for her. So will either drive home late tomo or first thing Wed.
@trick60 so glad you are enjoying your trip, makes me think of ‘California Dreaming’. @Fndwheelie you are making such great progress its great to see. @DJC3 I am excited for you getting your girl down to join you and hugs to Dennis for the weather! Maybe he needs a coat for the winter, a Barbour would be good (early Christmas prezzie?). @SaskiaKC my OH works near Gatwick which is an hours drive from where we live. @HarrisonK you must be the best neighbour in the UK I salute you. @jjraak I wonder if I will open a spellchecker or bottle of gin on 25 Dec lol. Anyone seen @ianpspurs do hope he is well though it might be his moving house time. Best wishes to him.
Have a good Monday everyone. Stay well, stay safe.
Good morning one and all. It’s another beautiful day in the dark and dangerous north.
The wonder wheel misinformation and grassing up on transgressions reported a 6.0 this am.
Mrs Miggins has just left with her twin sister for a few days in Krakow so I am being left entirely unsupervised until Friday.
Only one job to do - go to the post office and post a letter for next day delivery - not sure though about what day to actually begin this task. Anyhow. I have decided not to renew my Office365 account so am spending the morning sorting out alternatives for things like Outlook, word and all the other stuff that I used when earning a crust. Thunderbird and Open Office are looking good. @HarrisonK - any suggestions?
Have a great day if you can, big hugs for all who need a daily hug (that’s the whole world population then).
7.2 again this morning. Was 4.9 last night so it looks as though I did store quite a lot of the extra protein as sugar.
Yesterday - because of the high fbs had no carbs for breakfast but this morning just couldn't face eggs and bacon or the lovely scrambled eggs that I usually like so had my kefir, inulin, ground flaxseeds mixed together and topped with a dollop of greek yoghurt and flaked almonds Plus some fried halloumi. 9g of carbs.
2hrs reading was 8.1. Too high I know but only 0.9 up from fbs which I suppose is good.
Have noticed something very weird with my readings. If fbs is in the 4s or low 5s even a zero carb breakfast will increase levels up to 3.0 at the 2hr reading. But after a higher fbs that absolutely never happens and the rise is significantly lower.
I noticed the same thing, but with the Libre I see when my fbs is higher it’s usually DP starting a bit earlier then the climb from breakfast isn’t as much. Breakfast and DP combined make the spike pretty high.
Wow! Well done, I wish you lived near me.
Haha. For the letter joke.
As for me.
Depending on your needs,
I have been using open office for many years.
Save as ms97.. And everyone can open as normal
I also got into Google docs. Syncs well with gdrive.
And for email... Nothing easier then Gmail.
I knew nothing of computers until 1990's.. Work switched over, so I bought a cheap one and taught myself.. pc for dummies.. Great book.
Then I discovered the world of FREE stuff.
And never looked back.
Can't Believe so many people pay for stuff that isn't premium and can be got for free
And if you're so inclined get a brand new computer system, by going Linux.. Mint was my favourite..... Then EVERYTHINGS FREE..
More hugs for the inexplicable FBG, you’re doing brilliantly sticking with it though. Hard not to get despondent sometimes I know. Mine will probably start going up again soon as yours come down - we can wave at each other as we pass!
Re Dennis and Barbour coat - funny you should mention that, we do have one still from our old terrier Tilly. She always looked so proud wearing it! ( that’s what we thought anyway!) I’m Hoping Dennis will fit it eventually. At the moment I don’t know how much more growing he’ll do so I can’t get him a new one - he’s already grown out of 3 harnesses!
Good luck with today’s lunch, hope you can get something low carb.
What I have only just mastered Word
Morning...another very late night to bed at 3am...I must get myself back in a routine...the sun is out (it was yesterday then hammered down) a great breeze...I need to get some food shopping I think I'm eating too much protein so need some variety...I did go to the supermarket on Friday...exited the car & realised I'd left my debit cards at home...came back empty handed & peed off...more coffee then off to hunt in the aisles...woke to a 6.6
Thanks for the hugs. I really dont know what else to do and am trying not to get stressed. I am hopeless if I’m hungry so am sticking with 2 small meals and the most sensible amount of safe dinner and am hoping it will sort itself out. The only thing it is making me reach for a G&ST a bit more I think Barber dog coats that are worn in are great. Hopefully Dennis will grow into it in time for winter.
5.8 at first light on the shores of virtual Five 0 Land.
