Good morning all - 13.8 this morning.... yay :D

Definitely in the right direction, and to top it off it's the third consecutive night i've slept right through (and havent had to get up for a wee!)

Have a great day :)

Yesterday we had a Tesco delivery. Amongst the items was supposed to be my fortnightly treat of Green & Blacks Organic Dark 85% Chocolate. However it was substituted with Godiva Belgium Dark Chocolate 72% Cocoa Bar. I was a bit concerned because it had a much higher sugar content than my usual. I decided to just try a couple of squares. OMG it's so tasty. Half the bar gone. :eek:
But I needn't have worried. Today's finger prick produced 5.1 :)
Lady Godiva's choccy will be making an appearance once a month methinks.

That is great news! Getting good undisturbed sleep is so important. I still relish it nearly 2 years since diagnosis.... Those 4-5 nightly pit stops were a killer! I felt like the walking dead. It is a year gone October when they stopped altogether and I now sleep right through every night and it is bliss!
Onwards and downwards with those numbers! What are your daytime readings like?

@Gruers snap a 6.8 for me too. @Northerner glad to hear you are feeling better, hope it continues. @rebrascora hooe you are feeling brighter now xx Had such a lazy day yesterday, need to get moving a bit more today. Lashing with rain so looks like it’s cleaning and the treadmill. Am off work next week to use some of my holiday up.
Have a good day whatever you might be doing. X

Snowed a little overnight here but it's turned to rain now and what settled is rapidly disappearing. Looks like another washout day so happy to stay at home even without Government advice/orders to do so. Turned the cricket on when I got up. Weather looks much nicer in Sri Lanka.

5.1 when I tested.

Whatever your plans, have a good Saturday.

@New-journey Congratulations on your House Special!! Is that your first? Hope it is one of many to come.

@Michael12421 Good to see a nice in range reading from you this morning... Any idea how or why it happened so that you can try to reproduce it? Hope you and Missy are both well.

@Northerner Good to see you posting here again Alan and so pleased that you look to be getting over your bout of illness.

@rebrascora. I have had a troubled and tiresome week, yesterday I had a food delivery from Alicante. I had not estimated correctly my freezer space and it took me 4 hours to re-arrange both freezers and squeeze everything in. It was all packed in dry ice and so precautions had to be taken whilst handling the food. I was exhausted and my reading before dinner was 2.1 - and I felt it. I just could not face dinner so I ate 4 jelly babies, 2 chocolate truffles and a buffet-size pork pie and piled into bed at 18.10. Slept for 12 hours.

Oh dear Michael! Not something to be repeated then, even to achieve a good fasting reading. The long sleep will have done you good though!
A bit ironic that you bought in some special food and then ended up eating naughty stuff because you couldn't be bothered to cook and eat properly, but I can entirely understand. I really struggled to motivate myself to cook and eat last night and didn't particularly enjoy it after I really pushed myself to do it.... and then my readings went north so probably would have been better not bothering at all. Maybe we all need to come over and join you to help empty your freezer again and have a forum party.

Remind me what a pork pie tastes like, it's been so long since I have eaten one used to do a pack of 4 in one go :p

It was very small but very delicious. I do not miss many BrItish foods but now and then I have a hankering for such things. I used to make my own but cannot do so here as the main ingredient - pork shoulder - is simply not available.
It’s funny how certain things just aren’t available in other countries: can’t get bacon in Hong Kong; in fact, I had a hard time explaining to someone in HK what bacon is & the closest I could come up with was fatty, salted ham! :rolleyes::D
