    I couldn't access the BB either late last night. Oh, well, good to see you all again this morning. Grey and rainy here but warmer. Waiting for it to clear before I walk to the grocery store. At least we have food in the cupboard!

    FBG 6 this morning.

    Hello folks. Skipped a couple of days posting on here -- forgot my laptop at work.

    Blood sugars were 4.5 this morning, 5.1 yesterday and 4.8 the day before.

    Looking forward to a night out with tapas and red wine. Have a great weekend all.

    @Goacher55 and @Bubbsie -- Wonderful achievement keeping your HbA1cs in the non-diabetic range. @Bubbsie -- Harry is simply adorable.
    @Terrytiddy and @Chronicle_Cat -- Well done on the weightloss. Congrats.
    @HarrisonK -- This sounds like good news. When will you get your final results?
    @Freema -- Wow. Three fbgs in the fives. You are on a roll. Well done.
    @Tickledpinknot -- You have my complete and utmost admiration. You are a real fighter in my book.

    Doubt very much that you need to try harder - probably need to cut yourself some slack; sit down with a cuppa and figure out how to work smarter.

    Hullo all, 4.2 on my enigma machine this morning and 4.9 on getting home from work. Fajitas for tea, will do them in wholemeal pitta breads instead of wraps they don't spike me too badly.

    Have a lovely weekend everyone, take care.

    Thanks Ian. Cutting myself some slack doesnt come easy but with HbA1c mid Dec I defo need to figure it out. Still its a good time to have an HbA1c. I am hoping that life settles down a bit in the lead up and I am not going to let Christmas nonsense get in the way. My friend who is part of our family will be with us and the food will be good and everyone will have something to open.

    Hi @Fenn the Libres are the best for finding out what food, exercise etc does to your BG . They can be a bit erratic tho. The memory is 8 hours so unless you sleep for longer than that, no need to check thru the night.
