    Do you mean to say your reading was 17 yesterday. That is quite a huge deviation from the norm for your numbers....why would that be? I hope all is fine now.

    Congratulations to your big son on his result and you for running with sub-optimal bio-mechanics - don't push too hard. @PenguinMum, very kind of you but my care is probably oh so very meh. @DJC3 SWMBO has booked a holiday to Cyprus in Nov 'cos I already hate UK winter by then. Hence passport search.

    Congratulate your son for me, I know how hard he must have worked - and watch that leg of yours! Where did he study out of interest? My son did a physics degree at Durham (a few years ago now), when a job didn't fall into his lap, he ended up doing a PhD. at St Andrews. Does your son know what he wants to do in the future?

    5.9. :)

    Finally getting dialled back in using basal only.

    Of course there’s less flexibility this way but 1 injection a day rather than 4 is a good thing. :)

    5.5 at 6AM. Overnight average has been 5.8.

    I ate last night as I was feeling a bit cold at about 18 hours of fasting.

    No carby food as such and my total carb intake may have been about 7 to 10 gms but I guess it kind of explains the reading as it is not after a fasting day.

    Have a great day everyone. :)

    5.9 so still hanging on to the fives by the skin of my teeth.
    @HeliGary congrats to your son, that is a fantastic achievement, you must be chuffed to bits.
    Well done @DisFanJen looks like you are on top of it.
