Morning BS 6.0 - have consumed my early cup of coffee. Is this high? Would appreciate advice. Am T2 controlled by D&E.
6.0 is a great result. It may have been slightly lower if you had tested before you got out of bed as our levels often start to rise a bit (or A LOT) once we get up and start our day (referred to as Foot On The Floor syndrome or FOTF or it's earlier partner, Dawn Phenomenon DP) but your 6.0 is absolutely fine. The range you are aiming for is between 4 and 7 in the morning.

Morning

Bitterly cold here again, want to go back to bed and wrap myself up tight in my quilt!

7.7 after 2 Lifts so not overly disappointed

Got a few things on the way, replacement sensor that was issued last Monday still hasn't arrived and although it's displaying as despatched there is no tracking link available :rolleyes: tried Live Chat with them on Tuesday afternoon, began at 17 in the queue, got down to 3 and then chat went offline! :mad: some hand creams are due today but they are selectedto be left in a "safe place" and Hermes now have my Sport Direct order (sports bras as hating being back in regular bras!)

A nice round 6.0 on this dull and grey Berkshire morning. No frost overnight despite what the weatherman said. What do they know?

Had a very enjoyable day at nearby Stonor Park yesterday and clocked up just over 22,000 steps on our walk through woodland and across fields (some packed with sheep and lambs..!!) with some pretty steep climbs that I managed without any trouble at all. I'm clearly fitter than I thought. Not much to see in their gardens but it is only the beginning of Spring, so no big surprise. They'd organised an Easter Trail in the grounds so the place was full of families with young kids on a day out. As usual during school holidays hundreds of mums, barely any dads. Some things never change. Left all that behind, of course, when we headed off into the countryside.

Busy day ahead. Have a booking for the recycling centre in nearby Bracknell so will be loading up the car shortly, the engineer is coming this morning to fix our squeaky tumble dryer and we're having two blown double glazing units replaced this afternoon.

Enjoy your day.

Oh! Yippee! The Masters Golf is on this weekend! :D Forgot about it! But, no coverage on the BBC until after the cut rounds 3&4 on Saturday & Sunday: only highlights of rounds 1&2; weekly sports passes haven’t been available at Now TV since last year & have to pay the full monthly pass £33.99 or only day passes £9.99! So, will watch it on the BBC! Highlights of round 1 later tonight past midnight on BBC 2: will probably watch it on iPlayer in the morning?:rolleyes: Probably just as well or I’ll be a golf telly zombie; still be THAT come rounds 3&4 when the BBC full coverage starts!:oops: Just started watching the highlights of last year’s 2020 Masters in November: a very strange one with no patrons & no azaleas in full bloom!:rolleyes:

Should be alright & post as usual until Saturday before I start turning into a zombie & may be more forgetful? :rolleyes::D:oops:;)

Morning all, 5.4 here. And today’s exciting challenge is...can I get to the butcher in the next village? Three different sets of utilities are closing and digging up the roads all over the small town/overgrown village I live in. Yesterday, bemused motorists were driving round in circles trying to work out how to get from one side to the other. (It was apparently possible, provided you ignored the diversion signs).
Feel for you there! When they shut the main road they send the traffic round through the countryside. We always notice the volume of traffic. Have really appreciated my village and the greengrocers and bakery at this strange time. Plus the surrounding areas where I walk.
4.4 for me today, which is a shock. Had another weird dream again.

The fasting target range for T2s is to be between 4.0 and 7.0 so your 6.0 is within range. Coincidentally I have a 6.0 too and I'm also diet & exercise controlled.
I'm similar with a 5.9 this morning - there must have been a D&E memo!

This morning has been a bit of an annoyance. Everything I have done or touched has either gone wrong or created a problem. I might just go back to bed and its only 7:30am. It is strange I get one of these 'bad' days about once every six months. The rest are fine.

4.9 BG this morning. Not too bad that. Did a new tests to see it it was going down down down, but it wasn't it was just wobbling around 4.9. Add to that the testing tolerance too. All ok.

Best not touch or do anything else. ☹
It’s such a shame that the “Like“ button can’t be nuanced. So, I’ve read it, feel for you, and hope things improve today.

After my lazy weekend of no exercise and steadily rising levels I seem to be back on track with a 5.3 this morning at 07:16. Bitterly cold outside when I let the chickens out but no frost.

We have an area of the garden under some trees that when we moved in was waste high weeds. I mowed it and mowed it last year. This spring it was carpeted with snowdrops which have now been replaced by bluebells. There are primroses and cowslips coming through as well - a great improvement. The plum trees in the orchard are just coming into bloom and the apple trees and wisteria won't be far behind. There is a real feeling of spring in the garden. Might have to get the mower out soon as the lawn is rather ragged.

Just had an email from Curry’s, titled: “Welcome to your new tech, you’re in for a treat”! Apparently THEY are thrilled about my new purchase and if I get stuck with anything just to give them a call! There follows photos of three male Curry’s employees all ready to help me assemble my Kenwood Chef stand food mixer. Sorry, chaps, I did it all by myself and had a cake in the oven just two hours after Dave from DPD delivered it! It did make me laugh though. Tomorrow’s email will be; “ please review your new purchase.”:rolleyes:
Yup. This drives me to distraction.

Every bloody DPD driver is apparently called “Dave” and can predict his delivery window to the minute. It’s never “from 10 past 1 to 10 past 2” - it has to be 13:11 to 14:11. What bullsh1t!

Then, even if it’s a big bit of kit that might take half a day to assemble, no sooner has the van driven away you get your first email: How did we do, please leave a review.

Morning. 6.2 here but only because I corrected a worrying 17 (despite bedtime corrections) at 5am. Argh the basal is just a nightmare to get right. I am liking the longer acting one in that my bgs seem much more stable in general throughout the day but with nighttime/early morning hypos. On the other hand, lower dose but higher bgs and more corrections. I've been on lantis, levermir and now tresiba so I hope we can work this out.

Either way, lovely cold and brisky morning here. Enjoyed my walk to work and fmy cold appears to be leaving so win win.

Hope you're all doing well!

I had one parked outside the house the other day I asked if he had something for me as I was going out. He said he did but I couldn't have it for 2 minutes as it was early and outside of the delivery slot!

Morning all. :D 5.3 here.

I love a good carrot cake as well @eggyg - thanks for posting the recipe!:p

I’m like you @HenryBennett. My dogs aren’t allowed upstairs or on the furniture - life’s too short to be hoovering dog hair off the sofa. Bloden has got her Advanced Year-round Moulting certificate. :eek: The birds love it this time of year when I brush her in the garden - top notch nesting material.:)
I have 3 labradoodles not supposed to moult ... don’t think they inherited that bit

That's crazy! But it just shows you how u reasonable companies are if they're complaining about their staff being 2 minutes out of time!
