    Morning All. 6.2 this morning so in the zone really.
    No 1 son coming today taking us out for carvery tomo which will be a treat. Thinking of cooking Beef Strogonoff tonight, like the look of the Jamie recipe.
    @Emma_369 like your plans also @DJC3 sounds a fun fun event.
    Have a great Saturday everyone. Stay well, stay safe.

    Good morning all. Again three days of catching up on postings to do, got through most of Wednesday by now. Off to do some grocery shopping in a minute - so will catch up on the rest later.

    Weather has been brilliant lately, sunny and 15 degrees, hope it stays this way. We will have some tapas and wine later today, might even sit outside and enjoy the sun.

    Fasting blood sugars for the last three days were 4.5, 4.4, 4.8.

    Have a great weekend everyone.

    That must have been some serious misdemeanour for you to have been sent to Croydon:angelic: (Just realised, the first cohort I taught there will be in their 50s:arghh:)

    good morning all :)

    4.9 today

    not the best night's sleep I've ever had, never mind, it's a bit grey outside but it's mild at least. Perhaps I'll get a walk later :)

    Hope your day treats you kindly :)

    Morning all, 8.8 this morning which was exciting. I think this may be because I didn’t have much dinner last night....

    I start the basal/bolus regime today so will be learning to count carbs - wish me luck!

    The aim today is not to panic when I get to 7 and to try to resist eating at this stage even though I feel hypo. The consultant confirmed this is just a fake hypo because I have been running so high. You can imagine how I felt yesterday when at one point after eating late due to being busy in work I got to a 5.8 :hungover: - I thought I was gonna pass out!

    Have s nice Saturday everyone!

    Pleased to read the fasting numbers are falling but also feel for you with the false hypos. You are having a bit of a rough ride getting this all sorted so take care.

    Yes, I didn’t realise how long it would take to get numbers down nor how long to get a correct diagnosis!

    I’m hoping with the quick acting insulin I can avoid the random spikes I get some days (for example yesterday pre lunch I was 5 and then went to 15!).

    Done my first quick acting injection so let’s hope I calculated it correctly!!

    Morning all . I am thrilled at getting a reading of 5.2 after supper at a friends. She's a great friend but doesn't 100% get the low carb thing for me some truly fantastic fig leaf ice cream made with Stevia ........, wow what a taste. .......


    ...........So having spent some time reading up on grass fed beef and the benefits of Vitamin K2 today its time to visit a local farm and buy some genuine grass fed beef. - I'd been half kidding myself that the supermarket stuff was ok until I drilled down into how they were reared........................ This farm is lovely , they give their animals names and treat them really well you get to meet them in real life before well,...tasting them... Have a great day all

    I concur with @ianpspurs , bang on point as per usual.

    the only thing i'd add...( hope you don't think me rude )

    is from the avatar, it all seems soft and fluffy.

    but what your spirit has shown us is during your posts, is there is Steel & Fire inside that persona.
    more perhaps then even you thought...

    People..we are a lot tougher inside then we look.

    Your roads been tough, but hopefully it's beginning to get paved some of the way.

    best wished @SB.25

    We have one butcher left in town now. Sadly he says he cant afford to keep organic meat as "theres no demand" - well not enough for him anyhow. For me its not an issue to go out of town a few miles and get raw milk and organic meat....

    agh..relationships..:rolleyes:
    soppy stupid spat this morning with the OH..all kissed and made up .
    But just before testing..ggrr...FBG 6.1.

    So i wanted to post a nice chilled message ala
    "Life is not about waiting for the rain to stop,
    but learning to dance in the rain.."

    then i spotted this on the Missus's faceache page.
    happiness and equilibrium restored.

    so with a slight adaptation.

    Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.
