    Thanks Ian. Now feels like a chest infection, gave up trying to sleep at 05.30 and headed for the sofa and tea. FBG then was 8.2 so I have decided to stop testing for a few days. Happy Wednesday everyone.

    Sometimes all testing does is remind one that illness/stress/the weather etc mess with bg and no amount of tweaking diet will solve that so best to take a break. @Pipp I genuinely think that is on topic.

    7.7 - “Sunset Strip!

    And in other news, the Double Glazing Army have pulled up their tent-pegs, doused their fires, fed their Peugeot Van and head off for Glass Fields new.

    5.6 for me today. It is a bit disappointing for me since my fasting numbers have always been in the 4s.

    5.7 this morning after trying some Chinese food last night, just about got away with it, but in no rush to try it again anytime soon .... bloods went from 4.9 before to 7.2 two hours after starting eating it, and 6.2 three hours after starting eating .... anyway, have a great weekend folks.

    Missed posting yesterday due to problems with app... probably just as well as it was my worst in quite some time.

    This morning was a miserable 8.5. At least down on yesterday. Fingers crossed tommorrow brings better things.
