    I think the correct terminology regarding Knikki is ......” he was retired “

    I think I was retired for a short time for the same thing but I came back and wish Knikki would too. Wicked sense of humour.@therower

    MeiChanski - I must admit, because I have to avoid gluten absolutely, I usually ensure I have my own food sorted out, rather than rely on anyone anywhere to feed me.

    I know your issues aren't with gluten, but personally, I just feel I'm better looking after myself, then if something irresistibly, suitably fabulous turns up in front of me, it's a pleasant surprise. but I know I'll not be going hungry.

    I’m training to be a paramedic, it’s amazing and I absolutely love it. Diabetes robbed me of a lot of years, but thanks to the tech I’m lucky enough to have now, I’ve been able to achieve non diabetic levels, reverse the complications and really get to grips with life again. On blue lights and sirens :D Dark humour a prerequisite for the job.

    Ended up doing 24 (and a half) hours straight on my feet yesterday. Up at 0530, busy day at uni, was chilling at home watching Cake Off with the family when my best mate called in a panic. Her usually well controlled asthma had kicked off, worse than I’ve ever seen it, and her inhalers weren’t working. So I took her down to A&E for nebulising and oxygen - long story short, we were there for six hours, and I finally crawled into bed at 6am. Slept until lunchtime, and feel surprisingly chipper. D-emon behaved pretty well throughout, but I did have to do a pod change at 5am while we were at the hospital, as it was due at bedtime last night. All good practice for when I start my clinical placement out on the road in a couple of weeks, and will be doing shifts, I suppose! The Loop seems to be handling my topsy-turvy life admirably. Friend is much better today, I’ll pop over later and check on her - handily one of my exams is patient assessment on someone with respiratory issues, so it’s revision. With a cup of tea. When she offered to help me revise, I wasn’t expecting such dedication to the cause!

    Have a good one, lovely friends ♥️

    Enforced temporary retirement from T1D chums, about the same as having to go and sit on the naughty stool when I was a child.

    Yowie wowie just took blood reading 4.3. Beating my previous low of 4.4. I'm so happy. Being back at work helps lower my blood as excersie. Cleaning trains on my feet all the time. I feel good no sign of feeling wonky. Guess needs to be in 3. But I'm doing great. Yes it's still honeymoon time but I'm determined with all this. :)

    When I worked in a restaurant in the 1990's, at the end of the shift, about 2.30pm, we could eat the meals for that day.
    In my new job, going to the council offices for courses, we need to take our own lunch, eat in the council restaurant or go outside, but a few years ago they did provide food for lunch, but that stopped probably to save money.
    They provide tea, coffee and biscuits for breaks.

    I told the kitchen I’m vegetarian, so I get anything from tofu to vegetables for my meal. Today I had mixed veggie stir fry with a bit of spice. But I brought snacks in my backpack with me so if I feel a bit peckish, I can go upstairs for a quick munch.

    What happened to Knikki, did he get in to trouble, or something?

    Yep @Alison54321, we were "naughty" and I miss his humour but not surprised he hasn't returned. A big loss, wit and intelligence
