    Well I would like to meet @AdamJames in person to claim the hug he just gave me! It would be fun to all get together for a hugfest!

    "A place for us diabetics to have a chat, post blood glucose numbers if you want to, have some fun and banter and a even have a little whinge."

    This I totally agree with so far I have nothing to whinge about but am enjoying the fun and banter so far, so please just give it a little time it will settle down and be a very useful addition to the forum I am sure.

    It's okay for some, nobody can kick you out of any thread! You've got an access-all-areas pass! You can pop in to any thread and banter at will! Not sure if we have a member called Will for you to banter at? Let's try: @wi... yes, quite a few!

    Yes. In your recent thread called 'Garlic mystery solved', I was relieved to open it and find it wasn't about your feet :)

    Perfect plan, and perfect subject to have fun, banter or whinge about! Hugfest sounds wonderful! Can I bring the dogs?

    A further thought not meaning to spam the thread at all but being neither T1 or T2 I shall consider this home so I hope you don't mind if I make myself comfortable here and pull up a chair and settle in. :)

    That is so cool!
    Thanks. I just spit out a mouthful of garlicky salad from laughing, so now my keyboard will smell like my insulin pen. I usually walk barefoot or on sandals, so my feet only smell of garlic when something's fallen down while cooking.

    You know the rules. Shorts, thigh-mounted gun holsters, boots with red laces, a bow, and you get all the hugs you want :)

    Oh go on you can have all the hugs you want anyway. I've sent you another one.

    I'm quivering in anticipation. I've no idea whether it's going to be pictures of moths and bats from your recent jaunt, or p**n. Don't tell me! I like a surprise...
