    5.2 today, snap again @JanetMcDowell
    I’m doing 2 trifles this year - a low carb version for me and an ordinary one. Is it ok that they are both in the same size bowl? ( and woe betide anyone who dips into my bowl by mistake)

    Edit for typo

    A good chapati for a good chap. Seems like a long time ago when I started LC and couldn't avoid an Indian meal (youngest Son's pre-wedding gathering) chapati was flagged as an ok choice.

    7.6 this morning. Oops, I know I was bad last night but I didn't expect that. Still it was a wonderful meal with a very good red wine, followed by cheese and port...
    I will probably have a few more spikes over Christmas and then get back on track in the New Year

    [email protected] 6.45am . Woke up to the cat scratching the carpet to go out, then had a hot shower and tested bg level. Have noticed previously, testing immediately after a hot shower results in higher readings. Am I alone in this?

    I was given a pack of four mince pies and after eating one only, I spiked to 15 mmol/L. With a heavy heart I had to ditch the remaining three.
