    Finding two obnoxious Christmas jumpers for work is proving difficult. I don’t own a christmas jumper but I’m looking for the funny obnoxious type. Tonight I got pizza insulin to carb ratio correct and I’m rather happy sitting at 5.6. Anyone blasting their wallets on Black Friday sales?

    Just popped in to say "Hi, happy Friday", fairly busy at work at the mo so unlikely to be posting much. BGs are just about steady at a reasonable level.

    Morning chaps, been a bit too busy for farting around on the Internet this week, not much to report. BGs good, shift work manageable but tiring. Back to bed now...

    Hello friends,

    A bit high again this morning - 12.6. Christmas shopping is almost complete, one more item for bf’s mum and I’m done. Black friday sales got the best of my bf and I, we got a lot of boxes to recycle and we spent far too much that we anticipated but we were ready. We both got matching computer cases and coolers with RGB ;) so that’s our Christmas gifts to each other. Back to saving now :)

    Morning from Tenerife! -3 when we left UK yesterday, 30 when we landed Blood glucose took a dive will have to drastically cut back the insulin today. Probably not helped by the Prosecco and wine. Happy though!

    Morning all! Winter basal rates employed as of last night after it dawned on me this might help... and it did.

    Having a rare sociable Saturday later but right now I am also enjoying some old photos of my granddad and his brothers. My grandad died in the 70s in his 50s but the last brother died in his late 90s this week. Time to dig out the family tree to start properly updating as it's been about 15 years since I last did any.

    Mother in law visiting and child performing at a dance thing today. It can go two ways - I’m too busy to be on here or I’m seeking refuge on here.
    6.7 this morning.

    Good morning.

    Got a little drunk last night ordering some new music gear online. Next day delivery.
    Long story. Looking for some lighter kit. (I'm basically my own "roadie.")

    Lucky for me I stopped before doing something stupid. Though I suspect I forgot my basal..?
    Not sure. The pen looks like it's been used. Woke at 12.0. Hmmm, corrected that.

    Either way. I was out of it when my wife got back late from a work's thing..

    Oddly enough, I have one later in town with some of the lads.

    It could get loud & messy later.. & I'm not talking about the new gear & packaging.

    I've done the drunk ordering thing a couple of times and have always been delighted with the presents drunk me chose for me :)
    I have been the proud owner of a pretty cheesy t-shirt with dog's paw prints next to human ones and the text 'Never walk alone', a couple of very cool diabetes t-shirts, a rabbit needing a new home, a foster dog that should have been here for a couple of weeks but has stayed 6 months until finding her forever home, an electric lap steel guitar which I can't use because I lack the rest of the needed equipment, still need to find someone to give it to, and an erhu.
    The erhu (look it up) makes the most horrible sound imaginable but it's still cool to have one :) I gave it away after a year of fiddling around with it because by then everyone was completely annoyed with me having it.

    To my defence, all those items were free or very cheap, except for the shirts :hilarious:

    Hope you're more sensible than me but I also hope you'll be as happy with your new gear as I was with my various 'presents', @Jaylee !

    Hello friends,
    Our living room is full of cardboard boxes and I’m tempted to make a fort. My bank app and most online shops have been offline due to Black Friday sales. I have decided to up my basal because I’ve been a bit high in the mornings. I can see on my libre it starts creeping up around 2-3am and it ended at 12.7.
