    Morning all. Rudely awoken at 3.30am with leg cramps. Got up, donned disposable gloves (sensitive skin on hands), applied magnesium oil, took supplements forgotten last night as eating away from home, drank glass of water and then optimistically went back to bed! It really was asking too much to fall back to sleep so up again just after 4. Still cramping so showered and more oil applied.

    Oh and FBG a surprising 4.5.

    5.8 at 0500

    We have entered the Twilight Zone...
    Last night at 1830 I fell off the wagon, I had a piece of battered cod. I knew I'd have to pay the price so 2 hours later took my bloods and 6.3. 'Oh well', I thought, it will be slow to react so at 2100 took them again and 5.8. Went to bed and thought I'd awake to at least a 7.0 but no.

    I admit I have no idea but have a great day anyway :)

    Morning all. 4.8 for me as I skipped dinner last night.

    Sounds like a rough night @Goonergal, especially after such a long day and rotten journey home. Hope the day gets better and you manage to stay awake.

    Wet, misty and 5.3 so nothing much going for it just now. Exactly a year ago we were boarding a plane for a week of sun, pool, gym and champagne for breakfast in Cyprus - because I don't like this season. Today Julie is at this moment taking 88 - nearly 89 - year old MIL for a knee replacement or we would be there again. MIL seems totally oblivious to the dangers even though in the prep we discovered she has AF and had a small stroke she forgot. Julie is only surviving daughter and does the worrying for her mum. Tough old girl MIL, both hip replacements replaced in last 4 years now this - don't seem to make them like that these days.
