    5.4.
    Was a bit undecided what to do at 03:34, when I woke up, decided to test, and got 4.8. Decided to eat nothing and go back to sleep and, fortunately all was well this morning.
    Put the tent up in the garden yesterday and it was in good shape, so 2 nights camping coming up this week. Need some test-strips though before we go.

    After getting a couple of sevens recently I was relieved to get a 5.2 this morning, could be something to do with the magic of red wine!
