    Libre reader and phone concur I was 4.3 at 5.30. I know these are optimal conditions for me and feel for those of you they don't suit. Take care.

    5.2 for me, happy with that. @PenguiniMum and @ianpspurs I’d prefer to give you both ‘Winner’ but I’m on the app and can only use ‘Like’. Consider yourselves winners though.
