    4.7 for me. Just from nowhere, I'm started drinking tea, and loving it. It's my new thing. I'm trying to work out what brand to buy. Any recommendations for black loose tea would be appreciated. Have a wonderful weekend.

    I have been off the forum for a while. Been trying to be less obsessed with pricking fingers too often, while still checking a few times a week.

    Last night 6.0
    This morning- didn’t check
