    It's going to be a team effort. Everyone is right with me.

    Thank you, you are too kind. Im really quite an ordinary person haha. My mum battled. For years. No info out there then, only diabetic nurse once every 6 months to guide her and we all know what that means. She is my driving force. The info is out there now. We have instant access to the internet. At our fingertips. So much brilliant info. Books to read, videos to watch. Communities of diabetics all over the world all proving what can work in the battle. And also what doesn't. Our voices are getting louder. Rising up against the useless guidelines currently in place. Changes are coming.

    5.6 I'm very happy with that. Especially after dinner out last night. Mushrooms in a stilton sauce then chicken kebab with salad.

    Off out to pick up my grandaughter now. A delightful 2 year old who makes me laugh all day.

    Enjoy your days everyone.

    Good morning all. Rainy and dark outside, and tbh not very motivating.

    @Debandez -- It's absolutely fabulous what you accomplish. You are a real winner.

    Blood sugars were 4.8 this morning.

    Hope the crossing goes well. It’ll be worth it when you get there I know.
    My lovely brother - also my last living blood relative (of my generation or above ) died unexpectedly last year. I still can’t quite believe he’s gone and I miss him every day. Enjoy every precious moment together.

    Good morning all. Have decided to have a break from daily fbs testing/posting for a while as my constant 7+ results are not exactly mood lifting! :(I will of course be logging in to see how everyone is doing. Off soon to do our voluntary work at the luncheon club. Have a good day whatever you have planned and wherever you are going. :)

    6.8 Thursday morning. In the same boat with you, @dogslife. Or at least paddling right alongside.

    Been away for some time - other distractions.
    Anyhow 8.5 this am. Thank you Mr/Mrs or some other preferred pronoun Prednisolone. Got it down to 5.5 by 1400.
    The problem with these Freestyle Libra monitors is that you can get a big fright one minute and 20 minutes later you are OK.
    Good news is the graph indicates activity in the pancreas.

    @DJC3 I am sorry you lost your brother especially so suddenly. I am 12 years older than my brother and he calls me “little mum”.

    Oh bless him.
    My brother was just 2 yrs younger but it’s funny how younger siblings will always be ‘little’
    My brother grew to over 6ft and played rugby - he was a big lad but always my litte brother!

    My fasting was 6.8 this morning - wish I could get it down!! By lunch time after a homemade muesli breakfast 4 hours later it was 5.4 . I do think I have got high reading testing strips at the moment next to the previous couple of batches!!
