    A good afternoon to all and wishing you a very Happy Christmas Eve.

    I have been making and baking this morning, meatballs, some with onion and some without, for a family get together on Boxing day (at my house) and a GF chocolate cake to take to my daughter's boyfriends parents, Christmas evening.
    Having a quick rest as my painful ongoing right side of back is quite sore, so sitting on the sofa with a hot water on the painful spot, then back to cake.............. Tea o'clock very soon I think :)

    Hehe Is anyone having a nut roast? What is the estimated carbs per 50-100g? I never had a nut roast. According to JDRF, it has a lot more carbs than a meaty Christmas roast.

    Have a look on the pack if you can, they are often very carby - the nuts themselves plus the fillers and binders.

    Yup, two of them! The two older cats have grown past climbing curtains, but still climb trees and countertops :)

    My nurse told me today that during the first week of insulin pump training, I can go straight onto it if I feel confident. No saline, straight onto the pump and insulin.
    I received a letter as well to ask my GP to prescribe vials and it’s Novorapid, I’m a little confused as to why Novorapid and not fiasp

    I will be but, unhelpfully, I make my own nut roast so tend to guesstimate after I've thrown everything together. Usually lentils and nuts are what I will count! Possibly any root veg or tomatoes. However, by making my own, I don't add things like bread crumbs in it thus making it less carbier than any pre-made one I've bought.

    And even more unhelpfully, I won't be making it until I feel like cooking later in the week after the excessive amount of organ playing is done.

    In the meantime, I'm enjoying a gentle afternoon until time to head out for the first of three services in the coming 22 hours. By this time tomorrow, I really will be declaring myself on holiday until time to go back to my term-time work, as I've done all that is needful for the organist's work until the end of February!

    Bloods have been behaving well apart from yesterday evening's 3.0 which decided to appear 5 minutes from home! Um, at the bus stop outside my GPs! As a bus appeared whilst I was waiting for the dextro to take effect, I took it as a sign to get on it to go home and risk the known grumpy bus driver muttering about people only getting on for a couple of stops. (The bus goes for three sides of a square rather than the one side of it I'd've walked but it meant I was sitting for a few minutes.)

    Can you ask? It may be a mistake, better to find out before you have the insulin.

    I will call dsn on Friday about the insulin vials and my dexcom is being a bit funny. It keeps asking for calibrations and I’ve entered them. I don’t know if it’s a faulty one.

    @Diakat .....when tracking Santa have you managed to find the exact point at which he visits your house......have tracked him in the past and he seems to take an interesting route....probably something to do with time zones I guess....
    ....and a Merry Christmas to you too!

    Merry Christmas to you and yours Molly.
    I have never looked his arrival here up online (might have to now) I usually just trusted in it happening sometime between sleep and waking.

    He's heading for India now.

    Like you, I trust him to visit whilst I sleep. That has always worked in the past. ;)

    Did you know there is a world wide network of vets, called ELVES, that is prepared to take care of Santa's reindeer during their work around christmas? Pretty magical!
    Look for Horse Vet Corner on Facebook. It's a closed group, but you'll still find this post and it's reactions because people have shared. The reactions are pretty magical too, vets from all over the world chipped in to declare they were all ready to take care of Santa's reindeer!
