Ooh nearly forgot, some GOOD NEWS, got a letter from TFL to say they have cancelled my two fines amounting to £160 as they accepted that I was thick and unaware of the low emission charge and because it was a hospital appointment. I was very surprised but delighted.

Strange, I was wondering yesterday where you’d got with this.

Hi @Kaylz , thanks for coming back to me, the control solution range 2 is 90-140 mg/dl which is 5- 7.8 mmol/L the reading was 9.9 on the test strip. I did try another strip and it was 8.3 so still outside the range. You know how precious we are about our readings....
Oh btw my reading was 6.4 first thing ...

Maybe just struggle on until the next delivery comes and check them?

Thanks
If I were you I'd continue with them, I wouldn't suggest it if you were an insulin user obviously but as you aren't it wouldn't be overly concerning, the 2nd wasn't much out so should be ok, if you have some left when you get your new ones I'd test again and report the issue to the manufacturers if it were still widely out though xx

Morning all, 5.7 here, after a lie in, I was still crawling along the top of the red during the wee small hours, and 4.3 at 7.30.
Is it worth a call to the manufacturer to see if they’ll replace them, @Snowwy ? Nothing ventured, nothing gained..

5.3 on this bright and sunny Berkshire morning and feeling ready for the day after a really good night's sleep. Didn't even need a trip to the bathroom overnight. Sainsbury's delivery later and also planning to drag our two boys out for a family walk again. To be fair they have this week started going out to the park down the road and kicking a football around rather than just exercising their thumbs on their game controllers, but that's not the same as a good walk.

Enjoy your Sunday.

4.6 for me this morning.
Felt hypo most of the day yesterday.... when I wasn't... Did multiple finger prick checks as well as Libre scans whilst I was working at the stables because I was absolutely convinced I must be low. Arms and legs felt like lead and sweeping up and mucking out took me 3x longer than usual. Got home at 5pm and all I wanted to do was climb into bed. I had a coffee to try to perk me up but in the end I gave in and climbed into bed at 5.30pm. Went out like a light and slept soundly apart from waking up to inject basal insulin.... alarm set on Libre for 7pm. In fact I was so zonked, I didn't actually inject the insulin at 7 even though I did wake up and scan. It was a text message that woke me about 8 when I eventually injected the insulin but then slept for another couple of hours before I hauled myself out of the pit to do evening stables. Felt a bit better after that but still not great, although levels were good. Pottered around until 4 am and then had another 4 hours of good sound kip and a nice reading this morning. Hopefully, today will be a better day!
Must start using my preventer asthma inhaler again as been coughing a lot the last couple of days.... and coughing is so socially unacceptable these days and I need to go shopping in the next couple of days so best get it sorted before then..... off to take inhaler now whilst I am thinking about it!
Hope everyone has as good a day as possible.

Morning all, eventually. 6.5 for me. Sorry was AWOL yesterday morning, I was as flat as a flattened flatfish. Just couldn’t be bothered to do anything, but I came round after a bath and a squirt of my second best perfume at 3pm! :oops: Had an earlyish night and slept until 6am which is almost a miracle. Was wide awake and really should have got up but fell back into a deep sleep and had a terrible nightmare involving a very crowded TARDIS like GP surgery where no one was wearing a mask and I got lost in the snow! I woke up exhausted and got up at 9.40! Life’s a bit weird at the moment isn’t it? Going out for a long walk after our full English has digested, that should liven me up a bit and I’ll wear my best perfume today. Hope your day isn’t too flat.:)

I’ve had the nobody wearing a mask dream too @eggyg LOL. I was shouting at ev1 to put a mask on, but they just stared at me... :eek: Glad to hear you’re back to ‘normal’ today.

Morning all.:D 3.4 here. Must’ve been that cleaning I did yesterday. Just got my other half’s pit / sofa to do today, but only if he manages to crawl off it - I refuse to clean around him!:oops:

I was screaming at everyone, even the doctors. Everyone was laughing at me because I was wearing one. The chairs were all crammed together too and I moved one away and a woman laughed at me so I thumped her! It’s no wonder I woke up in a lather!

After a lovely dinner last night (Duck breast with pickled Shiitake mushrooms) and a couple of bottles of Pinot Noir (oops) I was delighted to get a 5.2 at at 07:51

Lovely sunny day here. I'll prep the veg for dinner (roast pork, kale, sprouts and potatoes for the family), have a ride on the exercise bike and then take my son out on his scooter. Sounds like a plan!
