    Lovely area - we’ve stayed in Far Sawrey and Ambleside previously but decided to try the Northern Lakes this time

    Great weeks readings!
    We’ve also travelled around the Lakes, never before to Windermere though.

    5.7 this morning.
    Went for a nighttime dip in the sea yesterday to watch the strawberry moon rising. Wow! Glorious.

    4.8 at 6AM, nearly 36 hours into fasting. Overnight average is 5.4.

    Had fairly poor quality sleep last night and woke up 3-4 times... the temperature was either too hot or too cold. :banghead:... anyway TGIF.

    Have a great Friday everyone. :)

    An outrageous 5.7 here. Slew of data suggests buggyMcbugface at work. Avoid trigger foods, whack in Naproxen and litres of Assam 'cos we can't have two immobile old fogies. 2nd week running salmon postponed as a precaution - long, long day ahead. Welcome @TooSweetForMe - nice numbers.

    5.1 this morning. I know the care team wants me at a HBA1c of around 48 so I imagine they won't want me in the low 5s regularly.

    I think I might have to dial back the Lantus slightly (8 wasn't enough and 10 got me a 5.1 so 9 maybe?) but I'll give it a couple more days before deciding as it could just be an anomaly.

    5.4 this morning. Had my birthday celebration yesterday, ate a lot of protein so happy with FBG blood results - but not with DP which hit subsequently.

    We usually hit the Northern lakes when we go, been trying to book something up but prices are exorbitant at the moment. Probably leave it until September now. Maybe a day trip there instead.

    Thanks Ian, fly in the ointment is my annual diabetes review and HbA1c comes around on my birthday and sure enough I got a text from my surgery asking me to arrange this. Just about running for the hills, not about my HbA1c but my lipid results will be forwarded to the hospital and they are definitely NOT going to like them. What a way to spoil a birthday - Bah!

    Best wishes for bloods. Pre move I scheduled my bloods for just before my June birthday and Christmas to cut myself some slack. No review since Dec 2019 - tests Monday which I won't be sharing.
