    I'm stockpiling Tunnocks Caramel Wafers, 15g a pop.

    If society breaks down, there's no reason why we shouldn't still be sophisticated about hypo treatments...

    Am going to have to find some room in the bunker for some Marzipan Ritter Sport too.

    Careful mate. Look at the trouble the spiders caused. We only need a dyslexic kamelaphobic and it could all kick off again

    Mel you’ve certainly had an interesting weekend! Hope the head isn’t too badly damaged!

    I’ve got to say my weekend has been fairly calm, daughters first league football match, and it was just glorious - the weather that is! It was the best I’ve seen her team play but they still lost 4-0, they just need to get in gear before half way through the first half :hilarious:

    Also had to sort the second chicken run for a trio of new birds, they now have full use of the run now they’re out of quarantine. Clearing and Moving lots of wood chip, thought working quite hard in this heat I’d knock back the insulin - perhaps it wasn’t as physical as I thought (as if) so BGs have been at the high but reasonable range, no hypos I guess us good:rolleyes:

    Used to love these and had them quite often - my boss sometimes brings them in and I have been known to indulge but very rarely. Not sure why though because I now find them too sweet and it takes me a couple of hours to eat - must be an impulse thing!

    Morning all, bg good, puppy alarm went off at 6 this morning as she does every morning - how do you change the time on a puppy alarm?

    @Mel dCP hope any after effects don't get in the way of your training today. Wanted to refer to your 'fall' but wasn't sure the humour would translate in writing ;)

    Morning,

    Sitting on the train next to a guy who really didn't want to have to share his seat. There was the initial request to move his stuff and put down the arm rest. Then he extended his arm as far as possible over the armrest. Then he started reading my computer ... only the news at that time. And now he has gone to sleep slumped in my direction with the occasional correction after some gentle nudging from me.
    BG was a little low on waking for no obvious reason (only exerciser yesterday was an amble around the perimeter of a local NT deer park) and new sensor is reading high despite giving it more than 30 hours to bed in.

    Who mentioned clock changes? That will be the end of summer and the start of dark nights. Noooooooooo.
    It reminds me of a commute I used to take. Every morning, I would pass a kestrel hovering above a wall. It was a highlight of my journey (at least it was better than getting stuck in a traffic jam on the motorway). Until the bird disappeared. Suddenly, one Monday morning, it was not there. It was not there on the Tuesday. It was not there on the Wednesday. .... Then I realised the clocks had changed and no one had told my feathered friend. I hope he worked it out and wasn't late for work.

    I hope your week starts with something nicer than slumping dosing men and purple cheeks fade soon.

    I think so because DSN said I’m not too far from death’s doorstep because of over night hypos. (I told her about the previous severe hypos) But at the same time, I’m not too sure. It’s like playing a guessing game.

    Afternoon friends, 6.2 but the weird feeling type of 6.2. I don’t feel okay but I’ll have a small meal before heading out for another job interview, thai food anyone?

    Good luck on that Mei. I am trying to persuade my DSN/consultant that I would benefit from a CGM because I am totally hypo unaware. I made the mistake of telling them about the MM and alarms that you can set!!!!!!

    Thank you, Just thinking about your situation, did they not prescribe you one along with the pump? Or did they chuck a pump at you and not take your hypo unwareness into consideration? Or did they want you to manually suspend your pump when you have a hypo?
