    Shortcake a great idea! I’m thinking about an apple cake in his honour before the birds eat the lot. Not quite Knikki style but can always decorate it with a Jaffa cake or two, or three, or a whole packet.

    I think doing things in Knikki's honour is an excellent idea. I'm going to make my lunch in his honour, we must remember him. :angelic::angelic::angelic::angelic::angelic:

    Good luck @Kim Possible
    Thursday is date day in our house and we had planned a trip to cinema this morning. But on seeing the lovely weather decided on a 5 mile circular walk instead. It goes across fields from our house and takes in the local park. Three hours with a 15min break for coffee and Tiffin for the husband. Had a mini packet of raisins en route and sugar levels at the end the same as the beginning a nice 5. A win win!

    Just sprayed coffee all over my iPad... :hilarious::rolleyes:

    Keto shortbread a semi-success. Fell apart a bit, because I tried to de-mould it too soon. Which meant I had lots of broken ones to “sample” :D Have glued some together with super-dark chocklit.

    Yep, @Knikki would certainly go for shortbread to stop you farting around.Good luck for the exams, have you learnt all the things you have to say when doing what you do?

    Don't you think @Alison54321 that we all sound as if he's dead?

    Sort of - in that when I’m with an actual patient I do them and say the right things. It’s just whether I’ll remember them under the weird and fake setup of an exam. I’ve printed them off and laminated checklists so I can go over it and over it with my family and they can tick all the essentials off. Repetition is key here!

    Hello,
    I’d eat jaffa cakes for knikki but I don’t think he wants me to be unwell Diabetes not too shabby lately, yesterday work had Christmas chocolates so I couldn’t resist anything marzipan. Now I’d like some sweet almond cookies, I know theres an asian brand of those cookies and they are tasty. I’ve been reunited with Fiasp, but I have to give novorapid a pat on the back for doing a good job with my work schedule and keeping me alive.

    Afternoon all,
    I've had the eye thingy done and it did sting again!! Started raining as I left home and then stuff me sideways, the sun came out after they'd taken the eye photos. I was hoping to walk home under clouds, ended up having to get the bus as I couldn't see too well But the thing that just struck me now is that I got a letter from the NHS saying the eye thing was due which was brilliant and then got a reminder to say I hadn't had it done... again pure magic. Love the NHS and all who sail in it

    I’m going to make low carb Jaffa cakes. Just worked out how to do it...

    My usual low carb bread mix sweetened for the base; sugar free orange jelly, and 95% choklit on top. Make the base in muffin/cupcake tin, and then assemble. I’ve only got mango jelly, but that’ll do. Off to the kitchen!

    Afternoon all!

    Just back from my checkup at the diabetic clinic, in some ways it was very successful, in others a bit of a failure, but c’est la vie! I’ll focus on the positives: I am to try the Libre again and now have it on prescription to do so, I have also had Fiasp added to my repeat along with 4mm needles.

    Another positive was my hbA1c - 42 - could have knocked me over with a feather! Doctor was convinced I must be having a load of hypos to achieve such a low number, but he looked at the Libre data I had and the data on MySugr and was quite happy with what he saw. I don’t know if being ridiculously ill for the past month and losing over a stone in weight might have slightly skewed things though.

    Came out of the hospital and went to Dobbies for lunch with my Mum (Moroccan spiced chicken soup & a herby scone - :hungry:), then had to do a bit of running between the GP & Boots, got home and my bloods thanked me with an 11 :arghh: I’m putting it down to stress and adrenalin though.

    That diabetes fairy has a nasty streak sometimes, but well down on your hbA1c, that's very good :)

    That's what I said before, the way we're writing, sounds as though he's dead rather than gone. I reckon he's lurking.Can I get the recipe for jaffas @LooperCat please?
