    Morning all! Hope you're all well!
    For the first time since my diagnosis (Oct 2018), my BG level his morning at 5.8 (assuming my meter is accurate - freestyle lite) First time below 6! I am happy with that. I went out with work last night, had liver pate for starters, large steak with mushrooms and a large pot of fresh garlic crashed into a sauce which I spread all over the stake- delicious! Washed down with 2 large glasses of dry red wine. It could be that garlic in combination with a small amount of dry red vino may well do a good job?! The downside is.. the smell! My god my mouth stinks!! The whole bedroom stank of garlic this morning! LOL! Best wishes to all! Theo.

    Morning everyone just got my hair done last night a nice bright blonde and it’s been cut quite short now but it definitely needed a good cut as what the hairdresser took of was all dead and spilt ends so I’m very pleased with my hair. Todays blood sugar was 4.4 I’m not doing a lot today my hospice nurse is coming to see me (she’s my hospice nurse but she generally visits my mum and I as we are friends as well) and then I’m going to watch Elf one of my classic favourites for Christmas movies. Have a good day everyone :)

    Now down to 7.5 after a big low carb fry up 3 hours ago, which I hope, means, I’m out of the limb removal zone

    A reflection of a great family night out last night. Family over from Dublin and Scotland to see us. Expected it to be in the 7s! Good low carb choices but you just never have a complete handle on ingredients when eating out. Oh and the battered onion ring (only one) wouldn't help matters! Nor would the amount of wine which was more than one glass!

    What a lovely surprise! A fabulous result. Well done. It is a worry when readings are higher than you would like them to be. Do you use an app to store readings e.g. mysugr? If so what was the prediction?

    Thanks Deborah I am a complete technophobe and don't even have a smart phone though I do have an ipad which is what I use for everything. I have a desk diary that I record manually my details and meter readings. Anyway it really was a very nice surprise.
