    I love paperchase :eek:
    Wh smiths use to be my favourite but the last couple of years, they didn’t have anything that caught my eye. Muji is my favourite for their simplistic stationery. Online shopping is even better for stationery from overseas. :)

    I think we'd make a nice type 1 stationery club, anyone into calligraphy? I got some Japanese brush pens for it. :D

    I have gone and mislaid my mobile, I had it this morning, late morning, scanned my sensor, then had a quick look at email notifications before I went for out for a walk in the lovely sunshine.............. when ready to go, could I find the phone, nope :wideyed: and I have looked and looked, rang it from my home phone but no noise ( even though it was not on silent this morning) I need it to keep in touch with my daughter who is on holiday, or she will be panicking !) I will continue to look a little later on.:banghead::oops:

    In the meantime, ask a neighbour to send her a message not to worry. Or ask someone through e-mail or facebook to do that.

    So I made coffee ice cubes to see if it's quicker to make a beverage that way and I think I quite like it. :)

    Probably the last to the party today.
    @ert, I’m feeling cross with your HR - they’ve increased your difficulties! Have they read the Equality Act? They’re adjustments are most certainly not ‘reasonable’, although ‘reasonable’ is a horrid carpetbag word.
    Yes, I agree, have a word with your coworkers and get their reactions of you injecting near them. If they’re needlephobic then ask what warning they’d need. I’ve yet to meet anyone who minds me injecting and am happy to do so in cafes, while walking on a busy street, in shops, at bus stops, on the train . . If there are people close I ask if they mind. None have said they do.

    Had a lovely day, met older daughter and new pooch at the pet supplies where a harness was fitted for walks. Poor little pooch was worried by all the people and the strange place but she knows me now so I hope I was a calming presence.
    Then I went to the harbour and booked attempt number 2 birthday boat trip. On 21st of this month, so watch the forecast - will probably be tide surge and hurricane.

    My block had a brief power cut, now sorted.

    You know you're a T1 when the first thought you have during a power cut is, "how much charge is on my phone, don't want to lose my cgm...."

    When you’re getting stationery and stuff ready to start uni, and an offer from the Assay Office to send you a high res jpeg of your makers mark coincides with the acquisition of a vinyl cutting machine... :rolleyes:

    I'd be like Joey from Friends munching everything from the fridge because the fridge stopped working. [​IMG]

    Having once carted insulin in a backpack round Asia for 6 months without it ever seeing a fridge, that aspect wouldn't be troubling me too much!

    What the photos don’t show are all the trippers. So many chihuahuas with them, never seen so many in one place, feeling grateful I didn’t fall over one.

    Was that the old style insulins? My memory is that PZI and Soluble were almost bombproof.
