    Thanks @SaskiaKC - all support welcome.
    I thought a T1 who knows what 20 feels like would tell me to stop fretting about an 11.
    I feel stressed but not sure if it’s the spike or the anxiety the spike has caused.

    Baileys caused the spike but the stressed anxious feeling is a Schrödinger’s cat question: am I racing because BG is high or because I found out it is high?
    Resisting the urge to test again.

    Good everyone. Hope everyone had a good day.
    @shelley262 did you try the cheese scones at itwontdiabeatus.com ? I find them very good for breakfast split with generous butter.
    @ianpspurs that little grandaughter of yours has it all worked out and willwind you round her little finger...and why not?
    You are truly blessed.

    Do you know if almond flour can be used instead of the ground almonds?
