    5.8 - always nice to see a five of any persuasion.

    4.2 at 6AM, 4.2 just now and flatline graph overnight with a 4.2 average... it better be at 60 hours into fasting. :D

    :D I agree... we diabetics are not a very fussy lot that way...

    Have a great day everyone. :)

    Back in the 6's with a 6.6 after a run of 7's so pleased with that. One day of reducing carbs to 100 and back walking :)

    So hubby and I have been in Wiltshire child minding for a few days, DILs childminder let her down so she rang us. We live 6 hrs away so quite a journey. (Took us over 8hrs to get back because of traffic and weather). Enjoyed the kids but it looks like the previous happy numbers I had seen are now but a distant memory. While we have been away, FBGs have all been in the high 5s. Todays was 5.8. I could give lots of reasons but I suspect it is just how it is. Will be being careful over the next few days to see if numbers can have another downward trend - Time will tell. Cheers folks.

    An embarrassing 8.7 on my Left Hand and less embarrassing 7.7 on my Right Hand. OK, I got up two hours before I took sample, so I reckon come mid afternoon I’ll be back at low 6s, again. Such joy!

    4.6 but I did have wine with dinner yesterday so I’ll take it with a pinch of salt.
    @Ryhia that’s a marathon journey, no wonder your BGs are a bit unsettled. 5.8 is still a 5 though, which is cause for celebration in my book.

    Morning All. 7.1 I knew eating two popadoms last night was a bad move but some how I had a hungry day and it could have been worse. Back on the horse today!
    @Ryhia welcome back after that marathon journey, you will be fine. Changes of routine also affect me.
