    @SaskiaKC Did you know or did I say before Judith's Aunt and Uncle used to own a stud farm in the Calgary area of Canada.

    I don't think I knew that. I do remember wanting to visit Calgary when I was a kid because of a book I read that started out near Lethbridge and I think ended up in Calgary.

    I just learned last night that a longtime horsey friend of mine, who I have seen doing very proper dressage in breeches and tall boots on a lovely half-Thoroughbred, after her divorce wanted to meet a cowboy and live on a ranch and raise horses. I told her we should retire to Oregon and meet cowboys.

    But Alberta would be nice too (and I have friends who have friends there).

    Good morning all. It’s a 5.6 for me this morning after a very large, fabulous and carnivorous birthday meal last night. The meat just kept on coming (one of those Brazilian barbecue places) and I doubt I’ll need to eat for a week.

    I had a bad day yesterday due to binge eating session and my blood sugar was 13 when I went to bed.

    Had an awful night's sleep constantly waking up with a very dry mouth.

    When I tested this morning my blood sugar was 5.8 @ 0700. That is low for me as I usually have a reading of 7.something @ 0700.

    Could this lower than usual reading be due to the binge forcing my system to deal more efficiently with the excess sugar overnight.

    After yesterday’s 10 which I was happy about (which I know seems crazy to be happy about such a high number!).

    Today I woke up to a 12.8 again :(

    I did eat slightly more carbs yesterday as I had a meal out so perhaps that effected the reading. Although my DSN had told me to eat a few more carbs since raising my insulin.

    Have a lovely Sunday everyone! I certainly won’t be as I have a full day of university classes!! :)

    Morning. A 5.2 for me this morning which is close to what I have as my ‘acceptable’ threshold. And I’m totally blaming my husband for my break of under 5 fbgs. He popped to the pub for a couple at 3pm and was bringing my food back with him when he came home. Which he did. At 9.45 :rolleyes: eating that late always messes me up. Good job I love him ;)

    Good morning each. I am still on tour but like to check in to see how my betters do things. Happy birthday @Goonergal - hope none of the steak was flat IRON(s):angelic: @DJC3 not entirely sure how one could over celebrate such good news - BTW may not have congratulated you yet. One wishes all and sundry the most spiffing of days with jolly japes all round.

    @Goonergal happy birthday glad you had such a great celebration meal.
    @DJC3 if anyone deserves chocolate you do!
    @Inchindown that was a lucky escape!
    @Emma_369 that made me laugh better late than never!
    Have a great Sunday everyone. Stay well safe and (note to self) in control.

    Hi-de-Hi campers! Hoping everyone’s meters play the game this splendid Sunday morning. 5.7 for me after a protein experiment yesterday that I thought would elevate me out of the ~4 range. I’m getting good at this now :D

    Lots planned today. Exercise and meditation already done. Now intend to spend the entire afternoon draped over the sofa playing Xbox and drinking coffee :watching:

    I hate it when that happens. Why couldn’t it just have been 4.9? :oops:

    Early to rise, early to test
    That way means the score is best
    My head is thick, my eyes are blurry
    I had too much wine. My tongue feels furry.
    Maybe that means my score is cheating
    Suppressed by the drink not the way of eating
    Right now, I can’t know, I’ve no way to fix
    I’ll just smile and settle for 5.6.
