    Good morning, all you lovely people. Fasting levels are much better today at 4.9. Exercised earlier in the evening and also had an earlier dinner, maybe this is what made the difference.

    @Diabeticliberty -- so sorry to hear about your hypo and headache -- I hope you feel better soon.
    @pavlosn -- hope you get over your cold soon. Wonderful garden, btw. I really enjoy your photos.
    @Prem51 -- Great weather where you are. Are you on vacation? (Also, have to admit I'm a teensy weensy bit jealous.)

    good morning everybody ...:)
    my numbers are really going in the wrong direction
    today again 6.7 at 9:00

    Slept wonderfully , didn´t have a lot of carbs yesterday , but did have a bailey and a glass of red wine ... the only common thing in the last days higher readings is that I had some alcohol all the different days , only a few not more than 3 glasses... did think it would lower my morning numbers by blocking my liver, but now considering if my liver compensate as soon as it is rid of the alcohol and then speeds up conversion of proteins into blood glucose...

    Good Morning everyone
    BG @6.30 am today 6.2
    No naughty foods worked my socks off for last two days-giving conservatory a good clean, but around 9.30am both I test BG again 6.4 yesterday was same nothing to eat just water and cup coffee. Has I don't eat until lunch time most days occasionally a little earlier if I'm hungry I was wondering if this is going to be my normal thing with BG rising until I do eat.
    Just cannot work out why?

    @Diabeticliberty hope your banging head has cleared, but there's no near to share it!! I've also got one so I think I'm going to need something to eat earlier than usual. Wish you well. K
    Oh [email protected] Pavlosn hope your cold so goes and your back to your usual self soon. K

    Hi @ziggy_w I'm retired and I like to spend as much of the winter as I can somewhere warm and sunny. I will be away for 12 weeks this year, though back for 4 weeks in December.
    I am thinking of staying for 16 weeks over next Winter, but getting a visa for more than 60 days seems quite complicated. I will look into it more next Spring.

    Hi Ziggy you sound like my brother and his wife they live in Germany and spend a lot of time on holidays, I'm waiting for my hubby to retire so we can do same,I've been waiting for last 7 years already but hopefully he may retire early in 2 years. So I'm also a little jealous but in a nice way you deserve this time when you retire,not your fault I married a toy boy!! Haha!K
