    Thank you. Entirely self-inflicted due to volume of food consumed yesterday. On the bright side, no rise after getting up and nothing a bit of IF couldn’t sort out - down to 3.8 before dinner.

    Late report. 6.3 at 07.00 today. Left home for Kent until next Wed. Stopped off on way to go to Kirsties Handmade Fair at Hampton Court with an old friend. Was great fun and we left at 3pm and I headed to more serious concerns arriving 5.30pm. Lunch at fair was Indian street food chicken tikka with naked coleslaw. Bloods this evening 5.3. Just had M&S rollitos and some nuts. Nite all

    Morning all. 4.7 today. Wanted to try and sleep in a bit, but leg cramps had other ideas. Still it’s the weekend and meeting up with some old work colleagues and friends for lunch today.

    Morning all. On this day in 1916 Corporal Ben P was killed in France. I have the medals, framed letter signed by the king and postcards from France and Belgium.. Leaves nowhere to hide facing up to any gripes today. No evidence he ever travelled more than 10 miles away from just here until the JRMs of his day thought it would be a good idea to send him to be killed.

    5.9 at sunrise and the forecast for me is "get off the cross-trainer and go for a walk". Enjoy :)

    Good morning all. 5.3 today. Cloudy but otherwise ok here. Wondering if it is time to start taking vitamin D, for the autumn.
    Didnt bother with the ketone strip as BG outside range. Might as well leave it till next week. Sticking to the diet will suffice for this week.
    Long walk on the cards. Hope everyone is well. Have a great Saturday.

    5.2 this morning, interesting visit with the nurse yesterday, recent blood test shows HBA 1C of 36, it was 92 in April when I was diagnosed, start weening myself off the metformin straight away and we'll see you in three months, still a bit gobsmacked.
