    No number for me this morning.

    In other news, new battery for my meter has been ordered (so THAT explains the somewhat wonky numbers over the last couple of days ....)

    Morning All. Disturbed sleep and bad dreams resulted in 7.5 at 08.15 when I properly woke up. Can only improve. Enjoy Sunday everyone.

    Thanks so much. I am four years in and first two years I was mostly 5s with the odd 4 but in the last year I have struggled to move out of the 6s and absolutely hate 7s. I try hard maybe not hard enough but feel I’m on a slippery slope.

    Must admit @Widgets I have been quite envious of your recent numbers. Any chance I could have your old batteries ;)

    I am further in to my DB journey at 10+ years - but am in exactly the same place with the fasting numbers. Try to be sanguine about it but in truth I do hate seeing the sixes and sevens at the start of my day. All other numbers including the HbA1C are good though so it can't mean that much!!

    @PenguinMum I've known you long enough to know how hard you try. Like many other aspects of life trying too hard always has unfortunate consequences. Don't even think of ever trying to use that on me for a femtosecond. I'm different. :angelic:

    This morning one metre 8.1 the other 10! I did not take it this morning or the last few days. Have had a bout of terrible contact dermatitis flare up under my armpits of all places and I had an apple this morning too. Think its all connected to be honest. I am currently walking around like a Michelin man - for those that remember :arghh:

    Sure! It'll save me having to work out the specific code to get the binnies to take them away with the rest of the recycling!

    Driving to the local tip just to get rid of a handful of dead batteries seems a little ungreen and counter intuitive to me. :)

    Thanks Ian and I just lose patience and get infuriated when I slip into high 6s and 7s. :banghead: Sets me up for a bad mood kind of day.
