    Hello all,

    Blood sugars were 4.7 this morning.

    @HarrisonK -- Hope you feel better soon.
    @DJC3 -- Sorry about the chimney. Major repairs always seem to happen right before Xmas. Murphy's law I guess.

    Morning All. Late on parade because taxi-ing OH to the next town. Anyway 6.6 not worthtalking about really. Busy day ahead. I have never had a. Christmas jumper either. I would probably only wear it in the house and then would get too hot. I have a nice red velvet top that I wear every Christmas day though.
    Have a great Friday everyone. Stay well, safe and if you can hypo free.
    PS. @DJC3 we have had a leak in our extension roof over the past 2 weeks but all local roofers are run off their feet and still waiting to get a slot from one. Hope you have more luck Cornish winters can be harsh.

    oh my
    There is only so much storage space and I wore it twice in over 2 years...... I dont mind a bit of fancy dress and I love to see people out there doing it but am happy to pass on the actual wearing of it all..... On the 25th there is a big Xmas swim here. Hundreds of people many dressed as Santa and other well know fairy tales plunge themselves into a near freezing sea. I'm happy to pass on that too. It is however a fine site to see.

    7.2 this morning, quite pleased with that. It has been a bit up and down the last couple of days as I was in Bruges with all the temptations that that provides. Weather is looking up here again today, totally clear skies. Mr P and I are off out looking for a nice new bed, our old one is more than 25 years old so it's time for an upgrade, bit of a pinch in the 4ft 6 double! Hope everyone is doing well today. I don't have a Christmas jumper - I have a black bah humbug hat instead :)

    Good morning everyone 4.7 for me.

    Originally they were calling for a bit of snow today but have changed it to dry and above freezing. This winter is supposed to be colder than usual in eastern Canada :( due to the influence of El Nino (a band of warm water in the Pacific near the equator that affects winter weather in North America).

    5.8 at 8:16 a.m. Happy with that as I went off another diabetes medication this week and there's always the concern something will go awry.

    Happy weekend!

    Good afternoon cumbs. I can remember the first time I tried on someone’s glasses in a classroom ( 3rd year in a biology lesson ) it was a miracle I could see the board. I’m thinking your op was a similar eureka moment when the fog went away.. enjoy the sunshine xx
