    Steadfastly sticking to the 6s which is very frustrating. 6.1 today.
    @Estragon and @SaskiaKC good daytime readings - yay for the 5s
    @nutribolt good luck with the HbA1c result, yes our stress response is seemingly out of our control at times which is so frustrating.
    @Mrs T 123 really good numbers recently. Well done!

    6.0 - Ah, with improved night’s sleep, much better downward control.

    4.9 at 6 AM today.

    @DJC3 Thanks for the best wishes. I totally get the frustration of sticky 6s. I hope it climbs down soon for you, @PenguinMum and @Estragon. :)

    Have a great day everyone.

    Yes I am pleasantly surprised and not really aware that I am doing anything different - so happy - it's usually the other way around when I am trying my bestest but not getting great results - weird, eh :happy:
