    Yes it is, and I had a cocktail! 1st in 30 months. Fbs were good (incredibly) but my libre graph from the previous evening tells me I won't be doing it again for a long time. ;-)

    Good morning all,

    @Debandez -- Enjoy your holidays. Fasting blood sugars look really good, btw.
    @GeorgeWBaker -- Welcome to the thread. Like your attitude.

    Fasting blood sugars were 4.6 for me today.

    Hiya - may I ask what your blood sugars shot up to with the cocktail - Oh I do miss a strawberry daiquiri with crushed ice, especially in this warm weather - I am thinking what could be an alternative for this - mmm SF strawberry jelly and cream - not quite the same but it will have to do - I could of course have strawberry daiquiris again - in my dreams!
