    6.7 this lovely Tuesday morning. In CDG airport just checked in for my flight to South India for 10 weeks winter break.
    Unfortunately succumbed to a delicious pizza last night so no surprise at the elevated FBG this morning

    Hey, Rachox, thanks for this - very useful! I have 4 Christmas Do's this week, and so far the plan is to consume alcohol on at least 2 of these occasions. I have never had a hypo, I'm the opposite - always hyper, so I don't want to find out what it's like on my nights out! :woot:

    FBG this morning - 8.4

    Totally envious. My only visit to India was work-related (Mumbai, Bangalore, Mysore) and much too short. Would love to see more of the country. Enjoy!

    Eating candles again mate... :D

    I wear a Quoll digital medical card on a security lanyard as I do not like necklace type ones. This has all of my medical details, allergies, dnr etc on it accessed from the QR Code on the reverse side.

    Nah mate think it’s the crinkle cut frozen oven chips causing the problem normal straight ones are ok with me ! Strange how a shape of something would do that but I’ve noticed it before

    Now that's a coincidence, I found that our crinkles are heavier on carbs that the straight one a s well. last lot of of oven chips I ate sent me over 14.0 two hours after.
