    I’m knackered. Been teaching CPR to kids all day... chomped a fair bit of dextrose and I’ll sleep well tonight. Had a ride most of the way home in a rapid reponse car, and now getting a train the rest of the way. Eat the chocklit @MeiChanski and dose for them :D Cos we can.

    Could you get them to do the tetris challenge next time? I think it's really cool! https://www.omroepwest.nl/nieuws/39...allen-hun-spullen-uit-met-de-Tetris-Challenge (I know, Dutch article but it's just for the pictures :) )

    So you could eat 2 of those boxes in a day and still have room for dessert without eating a ridiculous amount of calories!

    My review on glucose tablets: very chalk, mad crunch, 10/10 would eat again. Yep and I almost choked

    I forgot to show everyone the chocolates, it was too cute to eat but I couldn’t help it so I dived in for a taste. It is sweet for dark chocolate, light bitteness after taste but not super sweet. Most of all BG didn’t spike :)

    I met a young man today in a wheelchair who is passionate about collecting Emergency Services stuff, and is trying for a world record, he was giving these out and I may have had a bit of grit in my eye...

    @MeiChanski I find the dark chocolate with nuts I eat has a delayed reaction to BG levels. I can take my dose needed when I actually eat it versus prebolusing for it. Probably because of the lower carbs and some fat in it.

    Saying that, I might try that combo - crush up some dark chocolate and mix it with different nuts. Viola! Our very own trail mix. I was looking at the ingredients and I was thinking about a split dose for it. It worked out quite nicely today :)

    I often melt Dark Chocolate and ground nuts or nut chunks together. As many nuts as I can and it still holds together? I love dark chocolate and I love nuts sooo........ I make small bite sized chunks to grab and eat.!

    Morning all, hope everyone is fine. Bit cold this morning, and can see fog covering Arthur's Seat. Blood sugar ok overnight, but remaining milk went solid, so need to go out and buy some.

    Hope you all have a good day.

    Morning fellow pumpers and prickers, hope you are all having a good weekend. Just had a huge clap of thunder and now torrential rain here in Haggisland, so good excuse for no more gardening.

    Bloods been mainly OK apart from a huge blip yesterday, I ate quite a lot and decreased bolus in anticipation of gardening work being much harder, shovelling earth etc. Ah well at least I enjoyed the carbs.

    Have a great day wherever you may be

    @MeiChanski I visited the Hotel Chocolat shop in Street on Friday and got some small 75% chocolate drops, a box of 75% batons and a bag of Brazil Nuts covered in 75% chocolate :hungry::hungry::hungry: - not opened then yet but sure I’ll get round to them by tonight

    Hi all,

    Lantus & gig nights. No rapid on board, no carbs.

    I'm not a consistent Libre user. (Self fund.)
    But,
    I started a new Libre Friday afternoon. I finished work, walked the dog, van was already loaded from last week's gig.
    Showered, banged the disk on, got dressed & ready to go...
    The scanner told me I had untill "7.33pm" before I could use it.. I expected some scatty readings in the first few hours? However my meter varified what I was getting from the Libre.

    I take my lantus around 10/11pm, some say it tailed off after 20/22hours..?
    Interesting, I didn't get to dose until 1.30 Saturday morning.
    To recap. I happen to know my meter reads 15% higher than a calibrated NHS standard DSN issue.

    I mentioned "music therapy" last week. The peaks at the beginning of the evening I don't know.? Fresh sensor? (Didn't concur with my meter.)
    The end of the night was loading & driving home.. Then I seemed to dip prior to my Lantus & bed. (Which did tally up with a finger prick.)

    You don't wanna see the trends when I woke late the following day.. Now that's where the real rock & roll was, till I bested it in the afternoon.

    Hello friends,
    Not a good start to the day - 2.7, unfortunately I was low for some time on my libre. :( Gargled some coke and I havs further reduced my Tresiba. The frustrating thing is nothing has changed.

    Oddly, I woke on a blurry 2.8er after a dream about fighting over biscuits at a water theme park??!
    My Libre says I dropped in about an hour with a tiny blip up 10minutes before I woke.. Either I knocked the sensor or the dream gave a little liver dump..

    Oh my dream was full of food too, no wonder I didn’t want to leave. It was every food item on the menu. Dreams do something give me a bit of a sugar dump, but not always.

    Ever since I was a kid Ive had trigger dreams. I've never failed to wake up.

    Lol, I don't normally dream. I only remember the ones from a low..

    Afternoon. Just woken up to a 2.2 on one finger and a 2.6 on another. Meanwhile my rig was reading 4.7 despite last night’s calibration. Hmmm. This sensor is a bit shady...
