    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.

    Not even if they are very good? Hope they are very good as it will affirm all your hard work.

    Thanks Karen, a good likeness. You got the colour of my eyes wrong though, they are blue not green. Ankles are very spot on though. ;)

    5.4 today, happy with that.
    Happy belated birthday from me too @Ryhia and good luck with the bloods.
    @ianpspurs hugs for the higher than usual fbg, I hope you’re not coming down with something nasty.
    @TooSweetForMe no pre breakfast thread as far as I’m aware but you could always start one if you want to.

    4.7 on Swipey today. Higher sleep score, lower resting pulse and joints functional. @DJC3 thanks for the concern, I appreciate that. My guess is a combination of hay fever in strange climes, all the bugs from grandchildren, sleep pattern disturbed and lc, always lc's fault. Nursery 2 granddaughters attend may shut for a while as too many staff getting ill from kids turning up poorly. For £2k per month parents want vfm. Lots of kids turning up at A and E.

    5.5 today. Moved over to a meat only diet and my bloods are staying in the 5s. Yesterday 5.4, 5.9 ,5.4 and the day before that was the same. I had liver, bacon and onions yesterday and it went up to 6.8 so going to cut the onions out and it should level out :)

    Morning All. 6.8 after griddled salmon and asparagus which just proves I have lost the plot. Yesterday was 7.3 after FFF so going forward might have to rethink that. Happy belated birthday @Ryhia and good luck to you and @ianpspurs for tests. I keep pushing mine forward but the way I am going I might as well get on with it.

    Hug for this run of higher fbgs and the good wishes for my bloods. Salmon and asparagus sounds devine, stuff the meter.

    Thank you for your good wishes re blood tests. Yet to call to arrange as I am a great procrastinator. Sorry to see your struggle with your bloods hope they come down soon.
