    Hope you feel better soon, testing BG when you’re not well is always a bit depressing so taking a break is a good plan.

    Ha, take that DP. A respectable 5.4 today. Ok, so Iwoke earlier than usual, after a refreshingly good kip, and moved sharpish before Dawn P noticed I was up and busy.
    Not sure I want to repeat the early start every day. I mean, it is autumnal, and hibernation is so me.

    Thanks my A1c is good but I always think that is only half the point as it doesnt catch the peaks and troughs. Though my A1c has stayed steady for 2 years now my FBG hasnt.

    7.2, into the red and it is all my fault. Went a bit overboard on carbs yesterday by my standards, regret it now but no point grumbling. First time above 7 since 22nd August, but we dust ourselves off and go again

    6.4 - 3 hours later 7.3 Went to bed on a 6.8, this all appears “normal” for me. I’m guessing I’ll get a low 6 or a mid 5 this afternoon.

    Have a good Saturday Folkies. Keep dry and warm. (UK).
