    Good morning on the UK Winter Solstice. 5.2 @ 4.40 - bg control is obviously not my strong point but nothing alarming. Just bumbling along really. Looks like yesterday's McDonalds hot chocolate and some of Julie's toffee latte have been absorbed relatively safely - I did consider the Millionaires Latte briefly. DN meeting this afternoon which will be utterly useless - she will say well done and I will struggle not to say " thank you but we both know it could be so much better. Let's focus on how we do that " Hopefully the rain will stop so we can go to carols around the Christmas tree on the Village Green outside the Church in the next village - big family connections there and it is part of the same Benefice so I am well accepted (very tribal still round here but family roots are seen as important) Have a spiffing day.

    5.3 yesterday. Late posting as manic day but I'm posting as it's my best fbs reading for what seems an age. Not only in the 5s but almost the 4s!!! Not sure today's will be so good. Family meal out last night. My auntie is over from Dublin with my cousin. There was alcohol involved! I did make excellent food choices though. Pate, steak with halloumi fries and a dessert of brandy coffee. Very nice it was too.;)

    Kicked out of the groovy gang in cell block 5. Hanging around outside with rest of seal team 6. And a 'meh' 6.3.... :grumpy:

    Took today off for Hospital appointment, to get wired for 24hr heart check .
    Up stupidly early. (thank you, bladder :shifty: )
    So back to bed for a few more hours .

    Safe day every one.

    Thanks @ziggy_w I really hate being in the slow learners class for BG. Some wiseacre will be along and trot out "but its non diabetic" as though that would ever, ever appease someone like me:arghh: (I have absolutely no intention of doing anything likely to adversely impact lipids) Are you a James Bay or Birdie and Rhodes kinda gal for letting go?:)

    When ever I get acold it always turns to bronchitis and though when I used to be able to take antibiotics it always responded the chesty feeling could still hang on for a while.

    Morning All. 6.0 at 0800. Got my BG results back yesterday. HBA1c down from 37 to 33 which is mystifying to me. My averages over the last 3 months havent been as good as in the summer. I know a lot of people are finding Codefree strips measure higher than others and thats all I can put it down to. Of course itsa relief, I wanted anything under 40 and never expected to be lower than last time. Its all such a fairy tale I feel I should share the spare points with @ianpspurs and then we might both get a bit of reality.
    Have a good Friday. Stay well, safe and drive carefully.
    @PatsyB hope today you turn the corner and feel better. Dont leave it too late to get more antibiotics. Sending hugs.
