    I didn't actually break my fast until 3pm today but it was an amazing (for me) 4.3 !!!
    Lowest number I've seen on my monitor and very happy :)

    6.2 today, with the new strips. Not risking the old ones for comparison.

    Good morning to all.
    My FBG was 5 at 9.00 am.
    I have had a Booster vaccine dose of
    Pfizer two days ago. It seems it has not effected my glucose levels.

    5.1 was the first test then decided to test again just as a confirmation. Wish I hadn't bothered, DP alive and kicking, lets just go for the first one shall we?

    Thanks. super amazing to see you here again. MIL off oxygen yesterday and looking brighter. I was 5.1 - today in 2015 "2 months in". @DJC3 wine raises my fbg next day, downgrades my sleep score and Sp02 a tad. Allows me to eat with family sometimes - nothing rash just enough to stick this out, principally gravy. Can't cope with dry meat or butter/cream in veggies. Barbaric custom:angelic:. Keto gravy :yuck:

    5.7 today.

    Sadly got the news yesterday that Brother Ambrose at Adrian's friary passed away he was a lovely gentleman in his nineties. I had met him a few times and liked him very much. It seems he was born one street over from the friary in Oxford was baptized in the attached church became the parish priest there for a number of years and has passed at the friary peacefully in his sleep and his funeral service will be held in the church there. So his life story began and ended in the same place. I find that touching.

    @ziggy_w it’s lovely to see you back! Hope you are not still confined to zoom lessons.
    @ianpspurs that’s very good news about your mil, may she continue to improve.
    @PenguinMum 4s are very rare for me these days too. If you can’t have a glass or 2 ( or even 3) on hols, then when can you?
