    Good result Gabrielle...when I occasionally get an 'unexpected' result...as I did this morning...I test again...just to be sure...meter says it was accurate...you could always try that for reassurance...well done.

    K he is such an attention seeker...loves people...en route to our local park woe betide anyone who says 'hello' to him...he rushes right up to them...throws himself down in front of them...usually on their feet waiting for a belly rub...such an odd sight...as a bulldog he can be an intimidating sight...which belies his true character...he wants to be a lap dog...but weighs an absolute ton...has lots of unsavoury habits most of which cannot be mentioned here...steals the cats food at every opportunity...but...is adorable...hope the vet had some good news for you yesterday and the hospital appointment wasn't too traumatic.

    Morning! Hope I’ve not been forgotten ... it’s been a while. Went off track over Christmas, a little too much - old symptoms of fuzzy head etc returned.

    So today 8.9 :( dreadful but all the Christmas food gone and I’m ready to get back to low carb - I feel so much better.

    Hope to catch up with old friends, sorry I’ve been absent - had things going on which have thankfully all passed. Two year diversary on 15th so I need to get back on this!

    Now off for a 30 minute swim ....

    Mine was 7.3 this morning but I had lots of sugary things yesterday evening so my own fault - once I started I couldn't stop but back on it today.

    Hope all those struggling with their numbers or other health worries are all getting better - even if it's slowly.

    Good luck K with your test today. Here's my Blitzen to hopefully make you smile.

    Good morning all ;)

    5.3 this morning my diabetes monster must know it’s my birthday. Been a rollercoaster the last 4 months. Started levemir split dose last night. Best fasting sugars I’ve had in 4 months bar the odd flukey one or two and a full nights sleep. Waking up mid sleep to prick fingers was costing me a few hours getting back off. Best sleep I’ve had in weeks.

    Lovely stuff :)
