    Morning all
    5.3 today as I’m up earlier than usual so I’ve caught it before the dastardly DP kicks in.

    @Goonergal are you going anywhere near the Hotel Chocolat in Brum?

    Probably. Depends when my meetings end. Hoping for an hour or so of retail therapy. Definitely going to Five Guys for dinner before heading home.

    Need to stay away from the chocolate though. Solely a tea sourcing exercise! Do you want some if I find it?

    Proper journey through the fbg maze this morning. Took me everywhere from 7 to 3.2 before I trusted 3 successive readings of 4.8. I guess it is a good way to dispose of probably dodgy strips. Frosrtymcfrostyface and the finger tingling syncopaters performing live here this morning - just to make sure I understand all the joy in the world went with summer

    5.4 this morning. A good reading but is the continued aftermath of 8 chips at the circus - Bg reached 6.4 at highest but is the slowest decline I’ve had as was still 6.0 four hours later. A day of 2 dozen kids and lots of Halloween fun,games and mess (thankfully not in my house) and of course a whole buffet of treats I can’t eat. Going to get me a curry on the go in the slow cooker so I can look forward to something yummy to eat after hopefully refusing all temptation

    11.1 at 8am !!!! The result of Mum’s birthday Chinese last night. No rice or prawn crackers, duck without wraps but some veggies and a few ribs which were still sweet after scraping off the sauce. It is a blooming nightmare, you try really hard but still fail :-(
