    @PenguinMum sorry to hear that, hope you feel better soon. @nutribolt So sorry to hear about Magic, must be so heartbreaking and stressful. Pets are part of the family and love us unconditionally which is beautiful.

    5.3 on dexcom for me and 4.6 on Dexcom so shows me twicking my lifestyle is getting my numbers down. Private endro thinks it’s stress that is putting my numbers up in the am.

    5.7 this morning - considering what I had last night that's good; I tried to make a low carb Gateau le Progres which is basically almond macaroon layered between a very rich chocolate French butter cream. I used to make this as a special occasion cake, its the first time I have tried to make a low carb version. Its been a bit of a trial and error as I had to guess sweetener quantities and found I didn't use enough plus the dark chocolate I used (not my normal choc) has turned out to be quite bitter it's ok as a first attempt though, so of course there were all the bowls to lick clean after - it was low carb afterall. :angelic:

    5.4 but it’s not even 6am so there’s plenty of time for it to rise.
    @Ryhia I’ve never heard of that cake but it sounds wonderful. I often think they should have a low carb week on the Great British Bake Off to see what they’d make of it.

    5.3 at 0600, despite sporadic eating yesterday with work getting in the way and not having dinner till 1030 last night.

    Sleeping better after the purchase of a weighted blanket on Friday, really surprised how much it helps.

    Hoping for better weather today.

    5.6 at 6AM and 5.6 just now at 7.20AM. Overnight average is 6.5. The trip to vet emergency services resulted in some higher numbers at around 12.30AM to 01.30AM causing a bit higher average. Good news is though that Magic is still with us and it appears I panicked for no good reason as his throwing up was side effect of strong medication.

    Have a great day everyone.:)

    Good news on Magic @nutribolt and the weighted blanket (need to google that) @HeliGary. Swipey bestowed a 4.1 on me upon waking rising to 4.6 after dog duties and tea making - both uber essential. Rumours of dry days, something orange in blue skies and barbeques. Surrounded by >20k US service people and families here, barbeques are quite The Thing.

    5.5 for me this morning - not too bad after a fish and chip supper where I ate most of the batter as it was lovely and crispy and the first one we’d indulged in since last November.

    My daughter found the same thing with the weighted blanket. We’ve recently discovered she’s on the autistic spectrum ( no surprise to any of us tbh) and we’d read about the benefits of them.
