Morning all from a very wet Cumbria. Can’t see it but can hear it! Back in the 7s again with a 7.1. But this time I can see what happened. Ate late ( 7.30) and went to bed early ( 10pm). BGs 9.4 on Libre, at 11 when I stopped reading, 7.7. But possibly still some insulin residue. I can see on the Libre 2 graph I went down to around 5 just an hour later, then started going up steadily until I got up for the loo at 4.22 and was 8.4! A snack was probably in order. Fascinating stuff.
Mr Eggy and I are off out for lunch with @Stitch147 and Trev today. Really looking forward to meeting them. Hope our Cumbrian beer is to their liking! Soz about today’s weather though.
Word of warning, it’s quite brutal at times if you are planning on walking that stretch. A lot higher than we expected in parts. Amazing views though so was worth it.
If after that you want a gentler stroll, Sandymouth Bay ( free parking too for NT members, and a cafe) to Bude and back is beautiful and reasonable flat. If you get the timing right, the sunsets from the bay are fabulous.
A slightly better day yesterday except that, unusually for me, I felt very depressed all day. The realisation that I really am an abused husband dwelt with me and the fact that my wife is not getting better even if one day she seems ok then the next it's back to hell again. Not good. Hopefully I will bounce back today but its been a sad start so far. I just feel rotten.
07:10 BS 6.1 Got my basal right now with two more increases of +2 each at 10:30 yesterday morning & bang on midnight earlier as I’d slept through my 22:30 LR alarm! I just realised, while putting in my morning LR, that I’d posted the wrong units in my post yesterday: I DID put in 2 lots of 41 after the blockage but, that’s 82 units NOT 92; complicated maths too early after waking for me! NOW, with 2 lots of 44 in the morning my BS was still a little high so, I put in 2 lots of 45 at midnight for a total of 90 LR & I wake in target range! Yay!
Still coughing a little bit a wee bit hoarse so, my cycle is definitely going to continue for another while: ramping up; had to change my tesco shopping to this afternoon, 15:00 to 16:00, to get more urgent sanitary supplies!
A Very Good Morning to you all & have a Wonderful Day!
JUST about managed to stay up to watch all of Strictly last night but, TBH dosed off during the last dance & woke up midway through the next programme, Blankety Blank, when I turned off the iPad & turned in properly having missed yet another vote! I enjoyed both the Tango’s last night & actually enjoyed the Ballroom Tango more than the Argentine one, for once! The Ballroom Tango is one of 2 dances that I don’t really get, Cha Cha Cha being the other one, & can be very out of sync with the judges; don’t see what THEY do! BUT, some Ballroom Tango’s I’ve really enjoyed in the past & I enjoyed Sara & Alijax’s last night! Craig was back to his usual mean self in the scoring although, he held back a bit on the comments & I was thinking like Claudia Winkleman that somebody need it to get him some chocolate!
Now then, better get some breakfast before DP takes over & I rise back out of target range!
7.3 today. Nothing to report. @eggyg and @Stitch147 hope you all have a lovely day. @Gwynn sounds completely normal to me that you should have the odd day feeling so low when you are coping with what you are. I’m surprised it’s just the odd day - you are managing magnificently and our good wishes are with you every day xx
Have a good day all x
5.4 for me this morning and no red on my graph and no Lift tablets required.
Had a Chinese takeaway last night (chicken and sweetcorn soup with prawn crackers followed by duck pancakes) and it was delicious. Didn't know what Ian was bringing but shot myself 4 units when I thought he should be about on his way with it and decided just to guestimate how much to eat when I saw what he had brought. Never went above 8 all night so I must have guessed it almost perfectly.
@ColinUK So pleased you have that over with and I hope you enjoyed your D free evening or at least that the comfort food and TV helped you through it. Sending (((Hugs))).
@Kaylz Good to see you posting here again. Sending (((Hugs))) to you too
wow 6.6 back under the 7's today. Dull and overcast but warm 13deg and muggy here in Poole today. The lovely Jane wants "a little run out" again mutterings about Weymouth. There and back is just about as far as my 2016 Leaf 30 will get me in the Winter, temperature has a marked affect on range. @ColinUK , @Kaylz , @Gwynn chin up you guys, life is good. Today's trials will fade and there will be better times in days to come.
No pizza or ice cream last night but I had beautiful artisanal baguette from the very local French bakery (if you catch them as they’re getting ready to close up there give away anything left in the shop gratis) and I piece of cheesecake. And Pringles.
Rewarded today with a 5.8
Morning all, 4.8 here, woke with the sun streaming through the window, but it’s clouding over now. Forecast is good today, and showery for the rest of the week. Oh well, this is England in October, and we came equipped.
Morning all. Having been woken by the libre alarm at 4.45am with a 4.1, then every hour after with lows (despite being treated each time with Lifts, i think they don't bring me up as quickly or high as Dextrose), i finally woke properly at 8.30 with a 2.8 and a red line on my graph!!!!) Oooppps!! Juice on board to bring it up then breakfast, its now gone up to 11!! Oh well, its all probably down to the weekend being stressful and my tiredness.
Have a good day everyone. Its raining and cool here atm.
