    A busy start to the week with an early train to catch and time to test, but not to post.
    I started my day with a 5.7.
    Happy with our Christmas tree that went up yesterday, and with the train track running around it. My inner child and my two real children are very happy.

    Happened to me a couple weeks back - 6 days of constant high 6’s - 8’s when I’m usually never above 6.0. A new batch of strips, tested using both and the old one was indeed reading a lot higher. So it may be something like that - try not to worry

    Same same tree up lights on train track running round it , My grandson insists on it every year and he is a 23 year old.

    Must admit I am not adverse to it either. :)

    Hi Ziggy. Thanks. No, they didn’t try the window - not sure that is big enough anyway. It was literally a cm or so that stopped them getting it in, so one 6cm shorter should be fine.

    haha...Like it :headphone:.
    Alan Hudson used to live in my street..(true story) and us lads had the pleasure of a kickabout against him a few times before he went to chelsea.

    Btw, did you miss seeing the weekends scores by chance..,<Cough>.City <Cough>..;)

    Yep, diabetes may play a mean game, but i think it's underestimated a good portion of the members on here.
    Something i hope to emulate,.

    Diabetes, best learn that if thinks it can drag me down without a fight, it's sadly mistaken,
    there'll there be much Gnashing of teeth, kicking, scratching, gouging & biting going on..

    ( But cheers for the boost up, much appreciated. )

    Boo. Little worried.

    FBg has always been around 5. Had a 7 this morning. Has been slowly climbing for the last 10 days or so.
    Re tested and got a 6.5 and a 6.7. Stress is down at work too. So cannot blame that.

    Hopefully just a bump...
