    5.3 today. Very happy with that. Wrong sort of rain last night so no flood in the kitchen so even happier with that
    @Emma_369 that’s so exciting to be jetting off after Christmas. Fingers crossed Gatwick is back to normal.
    @ianpspurs hope you had a good day yesterday with your granddaughter and the roads weren’t too bad

    Brilliant results and well done you - especially after all the trauma and caring. Don't share points with me a) I'm not worthy b) You earned them, you deserve them c) Me and my BG may have some serious issues to sort out but all by ourselves down a dark alley.
    Now have a great Christmas you deserve one:):)

    Good morning all and especially to @PenguinMum christmas has come early with your hbaca1 results - well done you and do wonder if code free strip issues may not have helped. I ised to use it but for me it was higher and odd at times so when it went really odd I changed over to my second meter - a caresens duo. More expensive strips but, for me, closer to my hbaca1 but I also test my ketones on it every Friday too.
    Bg 5.0
    Friday Ketones 2.5
    Hope everyone has a good Friday no doubt lots of mad rushing around for all. Pleased you had a safe journey @ianpspurs and hope you enjoy your carol service later.

    Dont worry...I answer to anything!
    Thanks for all the good wishes friends...I do feel a bit of a fraud but at least I can indulge a little on Christmas Day as I was expecting to be prediabetic!

    Do you know I looked at it and thought ‘something’s not quite right’ but couldn’t see what it was!

    Well there is a man on my chimney - he’s not wearing a red and white coat, he’s wearing a yellow Hi Viz and I could not be happier if it was Santa - he’s fixing the leak! ( temporarily, but that’s fine for now!)

    Morning...not up until 8am...a truly luxurious sleep...a day of housework it's been sorely neglected of late...visitors in the next couple of days & who would want to have a hot mince pie & a glass of mulled wine in a pig sty?...coffee & breakfast done...woke to an okay 5.8.

    Good morning all.

    Wet, but quite warm outside (for December anyway). Blood sugars were 5.2 today.

    Have a great day all.
