    I had 2 nectarines (only suitable when BG is low ) I should stick to kiwi fruit because it's better after a meal.

    6.7 at 0600hrs on a miserable, wet Friday morning. Thank goodness the garden is recovering after the drought.

    5.8 - there seems to be a lot of it about these days. I blame the Russians or Barnier as they seem to be convenient scapegoats for most things.
