    Good morning and happy Easter all,

    5.4 for me today -- a bit higher than I usually see, but not unexpected.

    @becca59 -- Hugs for the hypo.
    @PenguinMum -- Agreed, I also don't have the courage to attempt a hot cross bun (or anything similar carby).

    6.0. Happy Easter. I am happy enough. Had 2nd covid vaccination. Feel too sleepy to be bothered with much, but have enjoyed Easter egg, a fried one with bacon mushrooms and sausage.

    Yes, I do. Not the end of the world but a bit annoying!

    Was fine an hour later, jelly baby just nudged me to 4. Usual brekkie with a unit less of insulin. Sat on a 5 for the rest of morning. Didn’t budge even with 4 mile walk. Roast lunch eaten all good. Thanks for asking.

    Mine was high today 8.4. I've always struggled with high fasting but this was quite high and not good for me

    6.0 this morning. Happy with that. @CotswoldsBloke ouch! re. the sensor. Expensive. No Easter eggs in my house today. Am liking the lower numbers too much to risk it. I will be on a bit more of an even keel next year so can enjoy chocolate again from time to time.

    7.2 for me this morning. Not sure what caused that, but will be extra careful today. Was getting quite used to being in the 6s. Have a lovely bank holiday today.

    5.1 on Swipey. Red meat, red wine (1/2 glass) so I knew what was coming but Julie likes a Sunday roast with wine. P:E with red meat will be a challenge. Starting out lc in 2015 I thought red meat, bacon, cheese, eggs - :woot::woot:. Now - :arghh::arghh: 2 bonuses - resting pulse unaffected, actually lower, weight 74.4 kgs.
