God provides in mysterious ways - LC is pants, God loves me - always gonna be a 1 sided contest. Best wishes for jabs @Andydragon and @nutribolt. Yay for fbgs @DJC3 and @PenguinMum

    5.6 this morning at 0610.

    Another early morning trip to East Midlands Airport, so no run this morning.

    Got back at 12ish, took small son on a 3.5k walk, off to Physio later, shoulder still very unhappy.

    Have a good weekend folks.

    Physio is ill, so I might try and run it off after all, swinging the arms helps a bit.

    Thank you for the kind words.

    6.5 at 0700 perhaps not surprising, had a chinese takeaway last night as an experiment.

    5.9 before going to bed at midnight.

    Awake since about 0530 with the shoulder of sleeplessness .

    Beautiful foggy morning here,going to let it warm up a little then head off out for a run, first time in shorts outdoors so maybe the shortest run in history.

    Morning All. Libre showed 6.2, the Mr Codefree said 5.5, so needed clarification. Mr Tee2 said 5.6 so I am going with that. This is only my second Libre the first one always measured much lower than reality. I only got it to watch 14 day trends after my Covid jab but it doesnt seem to be of any other use.
    Happy Sunday All.

    4.7 on Swipey @ 6.26 am - not what I want but could easily be good enough. Great fbg @Pasha. @Andydragon is the vaccine implicated? @HeliGary hug for shoulder issues. Proper dedication to finding out your bg @PenguinMum.

    5.4 today. Had my jab yesterday and it was eating day so its not bad result at all.

    Jab however has so far made me heavy headed and left me feeling slightly feverish. I am not feeling so bad that I should take a paracetamol and so am rather unsure if i should follow my fasting schedule for today or just eat. For the moment I have decided to watch the meter and how I am feeling physically and will eat if I need to take paracetamol else it will be fasting as usual.

    Have a great Sunday everyone.

    6.1 this morning. Too much late-night snaking. At least I'm safe. :)
