    4.7 but I’m under no illusions - too much red wine at the quiz last night.

    oh and I am happy with any fasting level under 7. Especially as I see 5s and high 4s during the rest of the day.

    4.9 at 5.05. So, we had the roast dinner Julie wanted yesterday, beef was edible, and I have come out of it just about ok. Important not to forget the difficulties for those living with us managing diabetes with this woe IMHO.

    Morning all. 5.6 today, expecting a lot worse after spending an uncomfortable and sleepless night on the sofa. Extra strong coffee coming up.
