    5.2 today (5.7 at 3am) so I'm happy with that. It would have been lower had I not had a slice of toast with my eggs and bacon and half a cream eclair at my friends when I called to see her. But I'm very happy that it didn't rock my boat too much! Looking forward to another sunny day. Taking my dear old friend out for lunch and we might even get to sit outside! She is 89 and suffering with dementia. We do go over the same stories every time we go out but she doesn't remember bless.

    She is my father in laws walking partner. They can't walk these days. We have been friends for years after hitting it off straight away. She lost her husband very young and her friends are really important to her. She is a little diamond. And great company. Always smiling.

    Good morning to the good people of this forum, I trust you behaved yourselves while I was away.

    This morning Lady Vampira did tell, that as I had been a good boy for 3 days, she would reward me and allow admittance to the 5's club with a 5.7.

    I am pleased with this as the past 3 days blood-letting produced results of 6.5, 6.1 and 6.2.

    I just hope my admittance is not temporary, but we shall see.

    Hope every one has a terrific Tuesday

    Morning all, a disappointing 8.2 but on a positive note no hypo after training last night, so I will take that.

    Enjoy the rest of the day, and the sunshine!!!

    good morning all :)

    4.4 today

    lovely looking sunshine this morning so out for a bit of gardening and boosting my vitamin D ;) then this afternoon we'll be taking mum's little dog for a clip. She'll be glad to be in her summer mode, she isn't enjoying the warmer weather with all that hair.
    I didn't enjoy it much myself when I was twice this size either.

    9.2 at 5:30. Why? I am in the keto diet and no wine! It’s creeping up for no apparent reason. So depressed.

    This game is definitely not a science!

    Let me know when you’ve learned to make chewy low carb toffee!
