    13.5. For me, it has been high recently, I think the heatwave is pushing it up.

    The England v Croatia game is at 4:00 am Thursday.

    No booze for me at that time in the morning, a couple of cups of black heartstarter coffee will be the order of the day.

    Good Morning! 7.4 at 0525. I washed my hands again and retested on a different finger and it was 6.5 which is more in line with my recent fbg readings.
