      Pressed wrong key there! We are an old retired couple now and take things easy. Nick has been very ill so he has to live a quiet life and look after himself. We still have a cat who rules the family. All the best to you xxx

      Nice to hear from you after all this time. I hope you are well. As you see I am still involved with the forum - churning out the Basic Information still. But I am in the process of deciding whether to stop. I am on the list of Mods who have done their time and are no longer wanted. Life is very quiet now asI feel

      Hi Hobs, i'm working at a production company and we are looking for people to participate in a video for a supermarket, promoting healthy eating to help improve diabetes. The video will be of someone with type 2 diabetes cooking a delicious healthy meal with our presenter (who has a background in nutrition) chatting whilst cooking in a home environment. You can contact me at emma@maltfilms.com or on 02070332812
