    5.5 snap @BrianDoc
    @1970clea I’d definitely have gone with the second reading!
    @Freema hugs for the caring for your confused mother, it’s such a worry.

    (Managed to post this somewhere else, inexplicably... clearly a lack of sleep affecting my judgement!)

    An amazing 6.1 this morning. Was out for sister in law and father in law's birthday and allowed myself two glasses of red (first alcohol in three and a half months) and a slice of birthday cake so that, on top of my still stubbornly clinging on cold, meant I was expecting to rack up big numbers.

    Perhaps I am, on occasion, going to be able to indulge after all?

    I'm a bit puzzled really. Last night I began with sneezing, headache and a slight dryness in my throat (which looked red on the one side), and today I feel slightly out of sorts and with a very sore throat and mild headache. So how come I'm still seeing low fasting numbers!

    @ianpspurs ... I'm not complaining of course .. other than having a painful throat, but such low fasting number just seems stranger than strange! :)

    Hello all,

    5.4 for me today.

    @coby -- Hope you feel better soon. Could it be that your body uses some of the glucose for energy to fight the infection? Personally, I don't generally higher levels when I feel ill. So, it might be a case of higher glucose requirements combined with a liver dump to provide the glucose. The overall net effect might not be easy to predict.
    @Freema -- good blood sugar levels today. Well done also on taking your mother for her booster (?) shot yesterday.
    @garyclark82 -- Maybe the red wine helped out a bit with the rise from the cake.

    Have a wonderful start into the weekend all.
