    They had both only at Heathrow. Both were set off by the Libre. :( This was not the case for any of the Australia security metal detector arches.

    I started working on Thursday 26th-Friday 27th September, then they planned to train all the new staff for the new restaurant which I attended from Thursday 3rd October until now and they said they'll pay everyone even for training. The restaurant will officially open to the public on the 14th October.

    When I left work this afternoon, my libre indicated that I was going to run high so I took into consider my walk home - my journey is around 1.5 hours by foot and also if I were to correct it, I might hypo so I didn't correct and I gave walking a chance and viola, I came home on a 5.5. Diabetes ain't fooling anyone. :)
    I had a long chat with my beautiful mother tonight, she said dad and her want to buy another business again. Her plan was to buy a business after Christmas so we can work together as a family, put my brother and I as managers to manage the business and then in a few years, I will be able to put money together for a mortgage to buy a place with my bf. I like her thinking but I don't know if dad is willing to put up with another demanding business, he can't see very well and he'll struggle to read orders, especially now everything is done on computers.
    Apparently my brother wants to study again, I think a phD in something and he is planning to move back home as well. So it'll be interesting to see what he and mum can come to an agreement on the whole living situation, because if mummy wants to buy a business, I'll have my right ear dragged back to London and our house is very small.

    I feel you need to get to grips with standing on your own two feet, before the attempt of lifting the weight of others...

    Yes it does sound like my parents are shielding me away from life. They've always have been bosses for themselves and that's good on them for not having degrees. She said it was just her thinking, she isn't too sure yet. My mum said she wants me to carry on doing what I'm doing with training, earning my own coins and managing myself better. I mean I can't even master balancing and holding plates yet, it's a work of art. (You'd have to beat me to pulp to get me to go home to work in another family business, 6 years was enough. But I don't dislike the idea if my mum manages it differently. Can't stop my mummy from buying properties :hilarious: But I think her and dad want to work again. )

    Good to see you back again and I'm sure everything will settle down and get back to normal.
    Staff have to check for everything now days, but at least they know about the Libre now :)

    Hi @Jaylee

    Thanks for the advice.Yes I did restart my phone, as I thought it could be possible the device was having a funny 5 & not the sensor. But it didn't make a difference.
    I applied a new sensor last night & I will call Abbott today to let them know about it.

    Morning everyone, been a way for a little while, but not doing anything interesting. Hope everyone is well.

    Not much to report blood sugar wise, it just keeps going up and going down, and that's all really.

    Have a good day, everyone.

    Isn't that the truth @Robinredbreast :)

    Yes luckily I had another sensor at home.
    I'll also call Abbott today & they should replace the failed sensor from yesterday.

    Morning chaps. On the way to Swansea (I’m not driving today) for a day of lectures on legal stuff. Should be interesting, we may need to be witnesses in court and stuff like that. Bloods ok but foot on the floor is much more pronounced than when I was teaching. Reluctant to really hammer it hard but soooooo tempted to get the blouses out. Hey ho. They’re being slightly too accommodating regarding reasonable adjustments, without actually asking for it, I’m given my own room for exams, in case I need to attend to D matters. I guess that’ll make things calmer and I won’t be distracted by others huffing and puffing in the background when they get to a tricky bit! I can have a ten minute break every hour if I want... all I asked for was to keep my watch, phone and dextrose on me. Hey ho.
    Have a good day, lovelies.

    Morning everyone. The forecast looks OK so a bit of mud gardening may be on the cards and possibly get some bulbs planted.
    Madam BG just in range but would like to get it stable at the lower end. I'm always uncertain about whether to bolus for it in the morning especially as I know my liver dumps without fail. I don't eat breakfast. What does everyone do?
