    4.7 this morning, though as I've been more or less awake since about 3am I'm not quite sure if it counts as first thing or not.

    Caffeine is good. Coffee is my friend!

    Too stressed to sleep last night because of stuff flying around in the wind and hitting the roof. Eventually gave up trying and went downstairs. Fortunately we have a downstairs room we use as a guest bedroom. Sorted.

    6.0 this morning so not too bad actually.

    The common theme today seems to be disturbed sleep, unexpected numbers but cheery folk just doing their best. Don't take offence but you can keep Arwen since The Free World needs Forest Heath's hardware and personnel to keep us safe. <20 gms carbs yesterday ought to manage The D but I've no confidence.

    Strange day really at 5 am reading 7.7 at 6:21 am 5.5 then 4.9 at 7 am then after breakfast 8.9 now an hour or so later 3.7 would you believe.

    Still the snow looked pretty covering the houses this morning. Err who is Arwen I'll stick with our win collectively if you don't mind. :)

    4.7 again, after a decent night's sleep. Even though it did end at 5am, early to bed early to rise makes a woman ... a social misfit mostly.

    Don't let being a person who has diabetes define you, you are so much more than a diabetic.

    Obviously true but IMHO it circumscribes one. Who here will eat a traditional Sunday lunch or Christmas dinner? Never underestimate/disrespect your opponent. When you get careless/complacent in a fight poo wins. The D plays a full court press/fights to the 4th quarter/last ball/whistle etc. 5.2 here, meh. 1-0 to the bad guy.
