    It is Saturday and Swipey has fbg at 4.7. 50% right which passes many exams in UK. @JohnEGreen hugs and prayers for the low/hypo but coffee/hot chocolate with a decent syrup is always good. I would make no demands whatsoever on your Pumpkin stash - Hazelnut is diffwent gwavvy.

    5.7 this morning, not bad as I baked meat pies last night and needed to sample to see if I had enough salt and pepper. :angelic: It's sons 40th birthday, he didn't want a cake so I made savoury instead, not professional looking but my sample tasted good.

    If you live in the North East and have a door step, it could be arranged...

    4.7 on finger prick and 4.2 on libre...

    60 hours of fasting and I did not have any hunger pangs nor did I feel depleted of energy.

    My average blood sugar was 5.4 yesterday... ketone around 16.00 was 3.4 so I was in therapeutic ketosis level at that time ... bit of reading suggested those numbers are nothing to be worried about and are Infact almost aspirational... although not quite sure how they are helpful but hey what doesnt kill me makes me stronger and all that... :D

    Only problem was that my wife and daughter were constantly worried and I had to keep reassuring them that I am feeling absolutely fine.

    Still not in a rush to enter kitchen... have a great Sunday people. :) :) Screenshot_20201206-065518_xDrip%2B.jpg

    Morning all 5.4 this morning. Earlier than I’m usually up as I had to set an alarm for me to put a large joint of pork in the oven for long slow cooking.
    Have a lovely Sunday everyone.

    Swipey came in at 4.2 when checked at the new normal 5.00 am. Graph implied I had been at 3 in the night. Body implied I either felt/feel nothing at that level or Swipey lies. @DJC3 enjoy the pork - hand and spring or something undesirable?
