    oops! 8.4 - I suppose that is what happens when one forgets to take the medication and eats a toffee apple at a festival (was very nice) - back on track today.

    6.0 for me today. A nice round figure :) Heading in the right direction. Have lamb chops to look forward to for tea. Fasting until then.

    Had some white wine with a piece of minced meat pie and a raspberry yoghurt for dessert. Woke up to a 5.9 fbs. Still within range but the numbers are climbing up.

    6.0 at 4:45 am, feeling great and breathing easy this morning.

    I only had two stubbies, then had breakfast. Then pottered about the place, have lunch and another beer and at 2pm when I went to bed.

    I used to have a good few beers when I came off afternoon shift at 11:30 am.

    5.8 the day before yesterday; I honestly just couldn't be bothered yesterday - so I think I'll just call it a 5.1. What?
