    6.3 - Woah! Which is doubly confusing, as I went to bed on a 9.1 - Shut the Front Door! So, overnight my Robot Endo-Sys decides to wake up, perform and creek into activity.

    Have a good Thursday. Oh yeah, our Street is wearing its NEWLY resurfaced, Pressed Tuxedo. Very smart too.

    6.6 this morning, keeping on with a semi alarming trend of not really understanding what is going on, but still being within the range required.

    Know the feeling well. I was cruising at around 7-8 for years then suddenly 19.8! Now back to 7’s 8’s etc but for no rhyme or reason will suddenly get a 9. Still I look at the averages as OK. Sounds like you are the same but better/lower.

    ?Welcome @Arizona - sorry if we've met and I forgot. @Estragon clear winner and spiffing road to boot - your cup runneth over. @DJC3 hug for insomnia but I'm more convinced than ever Elsie will do that to a body. No Swipey as I've learned they have to come off for an MRI so I'm rescheduling changes so as not to waste one. Thanksgiving here (we live amongst about 10k US service people and their families) so no gigantic planes all day. Y'all take care now, Yee Haw.

    :woot: @Lainie71. @Ryhia may I ask why tea and 100% choc (how do folk eat that??:arghh:) would make you expect higher? - next to no carbs with a splash of milk or almond milk.

    Swipey or Stabbington? Either way not where you want to be. It really is a funny old game - in the non laughing meaning.

    Some times I think having diabetes is a bit like being the manager of Manchester United football team trying to manage the unmanageable. Still it is what it is and it was firstly the Swipey but checked with stabbington not eaten much so far but now at 8.4 mind you it's 12 days since I had a cigarette so that may be effecting things a bit.
