    What a difference a day makes for @PenguinMum @DisFanJen hopefully @JohnEGreen and indeed anyone else who needs today to be better than yesterday - England cricket team? So I was 5.3 on Swipey at 1st go (7.02) can't cloak or disguise that as good enough for that method of measuring. Sleep length and score + resting pulse and weight all fine but this is a D control community so :meh:

    I never know whether to give you a winner or a hug for your very low numbers :) Because when my readings ( during the day ) drop to those figures I am really not good .

    wow so impressed, wish I could run…wouldn’t make to the top of the road. Do you find your glucose levels drop after a run?

    Hug would do just fine :)

    I too don't do very well when they go that low.

    5.6 which has been about average for the week so far. WiFi and phone signal very hit and miss up here so I haven’t been able to check in very often. Journey up on Saturday took 10hr, I’m already dreading the trip back so although I love the Lakes I think next year we’ll stay in Cornwall.

    Poetic Swipey intoned to be or not to be 4.8, that is the question followed by awake, arise or be forever fallen. Very confused little bunny that one. It often goes Bing and asks where Flop is. @DJC3 Cornish staycation (loathsome word) sounds like a plan for you. Even I might endure a couple of days in Padstow if forced at gunpoint. Did you keep saying are we nearly there yet just to bring back happy memories?;)
