    5.9 happy to see a 5 especially after long journey yesterday with the horrible climax of finding our house had been broken into. Could have been worse, nothing of value left to take, and it was at least ‘clean’ mess left behind. House ins provided glazier thank goodness.

    Morning All. 6.2 but did wake from very anxious dream. @DJC3 you really deserve that 5 after all that trauma.

    Thank you John. I had a lovely day. We are really rocking this social distancing. Got it to a fine art ;-)

    Hubby's libre finished last night but he got a great deal from it. So did I. The main thing is that non diabetics get dawn phenomena too!

    Here is my libre graph. Birthday low carb toast (@7gcarbs) with scrambled eggs spiked me to 9. I nibbled all day (worked around the carbs) and lots of prosecco. I did have a sliver of my cake (took the icing off!).

    Thank you for your good wishes.

    Sorry for long post mods. It's my birthday weekend so hope you turn a blind eye ;-)
