    thanks, we had the kitchen done a few years ago but it wasn't too bas as we weren't going through a pandemic at the time! The bathroom should have been done this time last year but there was issues between the contractors and the council on fixtures and fittings! Then we were due but lockdown happened, then they were supposed to start last month but on the day one of the lads was sent home unwell, its just a total nightmare, wouldn't be so bad if they kept us updated on what was happening even! Just something I could really do without, getting dehydrated as barely drinking during the day as can't use the bathroom or wash my hands or anything, pray for me please! lol xx

    I really don’t know why builders always do that, it’s so frustrating, but you’ll get there in the end and it will be lovely having a pristine bathroom.

    I've been through that with workmen in the house and it's utterly miserable and maddening. So yes, I'm glad to pray with you! And a hug of sympathy too.

    8.2 this morning. I am not happy, considering I didn't eat any supper last night or bedtime snack.

    Although the brownie I ate earlier might have had something to do with this morning's FBG number ...

    Sadly nothing got done today :( hoping the plasterer is here as soon as they start in the morning, then hoping the painter gets later on in the day, then hoping the bath panel, radiator and hand rail are all done by Friday afternoon, I'm not religious but I will be praying tonight, please do feel free to join me! I need to be able to take in more fluids and I REALLY need a shower! xx

    5.9 this morning.

    Not posted for a while but this is vastly improving for me and my average overage the past 30 days is now 6.6 which is think is good going considering I only started this whole insulin journey at the start of September

    A frustrating 6.2 after a day of very few carbs
    I think my meter is stuck at this number, it was 6.2 after dinner yesterday and 6.2 before bed.
