A very early good morning. Been awake since 4.30 and up since 5.15! Anyways getting up early doesn’t like my BGs, 6.9, followed by 5 units of bolus for my thin bagel, one hour later without eating 7.5! Dawn Phenomenon doing her very best to annoy me! Never got my batch cooking done yesterday as we decided on a walk before lunch which took three hours, it was only under six miles but we dawdle, taking photos and just taking it all in. By the time we had lunch it was time to visit our grandchildren, it was lovely, the little one was very pleased to see us and our 7 year old granddaughter gave us a hug which she never does or did before lockdown. Not an entirely socially distanced visit but who is going to refuse a cuddle? Last night two year old told mummy “ I excited go Gaga’s” no mention of me though! :confused: @ColinUK I love Bake Off The Professionals, I never want to eat the cakes funnily enough but love the precision that goes into them. Oh and I loved Cherish’s green dress last night, I definitely wanted that! Have a wonderful Wednesday, I’m off to get my pinny on before there’s any more distractions!:)

Joining @Snowwy and @Baz on the 5.7 step this morning.

Whatbis boring about your view @KARNAK . It looks lovely.
Congrats on the HS yesterday @SueEK . May that be one of many.
I hope the podiatrist appointment was useful @Flower
Lovely to hear of your hugs with the grandchildren @eggyg

@Michael12421 , sorry if you have been asked this before, but have you tried Levemir as a Basal. It does usually require a split injection am and pm, but that can be an advantage as you can adjust one without messing the other one up. And most important of all you can use a half unit pen with it, so it is much more flexible.

Gardening until it gets too cold, threading the loom and making a journal today.

@SB2015 I will ask the doctor when they come back to work! Both of the doctors at my surgery freely admit that their knowledge of diabetes is limited so their reaction is going to guarded.
The half unit facility may well help with the lows you have been having at night. It certainly sorted out mine when I was on MDI. I also liked being able to reduce the day time basal if I knew I had a particularly active day ahead, and then back to normal dose for night time.
Your doctor not knowing much might help as if you can go with the information to hand and explain it to them they may well bow to your better knowledge.

Morning all, 5.0 here. Had an adventurous day yesterday, I went to Specsavers for an eye test, and chose new glasses (not easy wearing a mask, I discovered).
So while I was in the bigger town, that I haven’t visited since March, I popped into Waitrose (in as much as one can 'pop' these days, but it was only a five minute queue) and picked up a couple of items that the co-op don't stock, including herrings in dill marinade, which I'm looking forward to for lunch today.
It all felt slightly weird, being in a much bigger town with more people and traffic, but I thought I'd take advantage while the locally recorded Covid cases are rock bottom, and soon I won’t be squinting at the small print.
I don’t think I fancied much of what was baked last night, @ColinUK, Chocolate, pineapple and Earl grey sounded especially weird. Loved Cherish's dress too, @eggyg , such a gorgeous colour.
Goodness, I’ve written an essay, I’m turning into @Lanny :eek::)!

Morning

Well here’s a pic of my new tank, isn’t it a beauty? TPD laws restrict UK tanks to 2ml capacity but there are extensions for some tanks available including this one so I have a 4.2ml juice capacity, vaping some Captains Secret which is a new one on me that a friend sent me mixed from a one shot, it’s a custard without vanilla and have to say its actually pretty nice! Also a picture of my poor hand to show the mess the RTA not coming off my mod did, OUCH!!

Anyways its a 6.1 for me, rainy and quite chilly here, was fine in my bed! One day I will treat myself to a long lie as been up at 6am everyday for over 3 and a half years lol

Have a nice day and stay safe my lovelies

You did have an adventurous day! I was due an eye test in May and my optician opened last week but I’m a bit reluctant even though I feel my prescription has changed. I might leave it a week or two.
Green is my favourite colour, any hue, unfortunately Cherish is a wee bit slimmer than me so somehow don’t think her dress would look as good on me! ;)

Morning all. :p 4.4 here.

It’s all go here by the seaside. Roads being dug up, cafes being re-jigged, painting, hammering, JCBs...all for the tourists’ big return on Monday I suppose. I just hope the sun comes out to greet them!

Ouch @Kaylz. That looks sore. o_O

Good morning, a 6.5 for me today. Yesterday we learned about volcanic plugs which was actually quite interesting. Today, Alice has a hospital appointment and I am going to do a bit of food shopping. I really need to go to the opticians too @Robin so just look into making an appointment.

Morning all with an added pinch & punch. It’s a new month 6.0.

Podiatrist was good, said they’d not seen feet like mine ! I thought I’d be able to pay by card as I haven’t used cash since Covid but there wasn’t a way to pay. Walking back today once I’ve gone via a cash point, I thought I was going to have to work there to pay my debt!

Hope you’re all ok out there:)

It most definitely is and its a never ending vicious cycle as with my OCD hand washing they aren't getting a chance to dry up so I imagine its going to take quite some time :rolleyes: xx

Believe it or not it's another 5 for me today, so I am really on a roll and just one short of the optimum number at 5.3. Has to be the Libre improving my fasting readings. I'm now up to 96% TIR for the last 7 days and no hypos.
I even chanced my arm at porridge this morning. Bolussed 5 units N/R an hour in advance (2 for DP and 3 for brekkie) weighed out 35g jumbo oats made into porridge with water and a bit of sweetener, then frozen berries, seeds and yoghurt added.... yum! Libre slowly and steadily rose but topped out at 8.6 one and a half hours after starting to eat (so much for porridge being slow release) and on it's way back down now, so just stayed in range. Very happy with that!
