    BS on waking was 5.9 Got up at 9:30, 2 coffees with cream

    BS at 13:00 was 6.1. Had brunch of a 3 egg omelette with parmesan and onion and one slice of gluten free crispbread with more butter :)

    In the afternoon had a pot of earl grey tea with small splashes of skimmed milk (had guests, I don't drink cows milk normally)

    BS at 1500 was 6.9
    BS at 2000 was 6.2

    Dinner at 2030 (later than normal!) was a wild venison shank slow roasted for 8 hours (!) with white wine, garlic and herbs with cauliflower parmesan mash, and 2 glasses white wine.

    BS at 2200 was 6.4

    Mmmmm..... Sundays :)
