    Happy Sunday, folks.
    Lousy sleep, 6.9 at 8:15. Should have tested earlier as I was awake at 5:00.

    6.4 for me again. First day without a drop since I started testing. A little disappointing but still determined to keep going.

    Good morning to you all. Really pleasing to read of happy starts for you @HarrisonK, @JohnEGreen and @karen8967 . My fasting bg was 4.9 today at 6.05 ish for which I am grateful if very sceptical of the accuracy. Even after 4 years I remain uncertain how it can be reliably replicated or how that fits into any plan for all round wellness and wellbeing. Today we are richly blessed to have our grandson staying over so those things matter diddlysquat. As the man sung, these are the days - enjoy yours because we are laying up some real treasure here.

    A wretchedly sleepless night and a fasting reading of 7.1. This dawn thingy is playing dirty now.

    6.5 this morning around 6:00am. Had an awful night, far too hot, finally gave up trying to sleep around 2:20am and went downstairs to sleep. (We have a downstairs bedroom). A little bit cooler but not much.

    5 for me this morning, one week after diagnosis and a few hours before I head in to see the GP for my first proper appointment. I’m rather pleased with that number!

    Fanatsic stuff @Barba_Rossa should be a good meeting with the GP. @Starfish18 must feel good being in the 5s again so well done you. @HarrisonK good to see you as ever and 6 is fine and dandy. A 5.1 for me this morning after eating meat yesterday for the first time in about 7 weeks. It is a pretty tasteless foodstuff which until LC I thought I enjoyed. On the very plus side, our grandson stayed yesterday and the evening meal with the meat also had his dad and little sister so here's a little verse to sum up my day
    These are the days now that we must savour
    And we must enjoy as we can
    These are the days that will last forever
    You've got to hold them in your heart.
    :):):)

    Reiterate Ian's good wishes to everyone and to Ian himself, can't compete with Ian's literacy talents though so wont even try.
    Well had a bit of a fast yesterday, went to bed at 4.6 got up this morning 5.5. Also lost 1lb in weight so spot on this morning. Its strange how the simple things can put a smile on our faces but then that 1lb has been hanging around for weeks.
