    4.3 reader or 4.6 phone - neither happy, sad nor satisfied.. It just is what it is.

    Oops. 7.4 this morning :(
    Had an unusual meal (Lebanese food with half a pitta bread and a falafel) and 2 glasses of wine last night so clearly miscalculated the insulin.

    I used both only once but they matched every time I scanned with both. Maybe you could ask other users like @xfieldok @shelley262 @Goonergal for their opinions on why it might be differing. Or even freestyle libre co.

    5.8 reflecting a lockdown evening watching old videos of family, commemorating what would have been my dads 91st birthday.

    5.2 this morning. Much better than I expected after steak last night.
    Hugs to both @karen8967 and @Debandez for your loved ones. I hope you both have lovely memories of them.
