    I’m with the females. My group are a bit more mature so I’m the only one with it.

    My bf has 4 Christmas dinners, actually make that 5 because he is going to have one with me. A bit of a hypo party today so lots of biscuits. My period is enjoying the sugar overload. I had a lovely vegan burger for DAFNE group lunch. Why can’t we get the same cheese they use on vegan pizzas and burgers Vegan cheese that I’ve bought previously was a bit weird and it melts weird. I think ya girl is going to be hooked up to a CGM next week.

    Good morning all. Had a small argument with the nurse who puts the ey drops in yesterday! I am totally blind in my left eye BUT she insisted that I have drops put in that eye. I refused as there is no need! Needless to say I won that one...... @therower xmas lights were AWESOME after :):)

    Morning chaps. On a late shift tonight so have only just got up. Will have a nice big bowl of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for brunch (no idea what to call meals any more. I eat before I leave, unless it’s dayshift when I don’t, and at some point during the shift. Tomorrow’s lunch will be in the small hours...) before I leave today and have the remains of last night’s fish curry for whenever my meal break happens tonight. Probably about 2300. Foot on the floor just kicked in, so I’m hoping I’ve nailed that before it gets silly. Love to you all ❤️

    @Robinredbreast I'm sure that avatar picture was on a christmas card from about 1983 :D

    Looking at last nights graph you'd think I forgot my 2nd split dose (spag bol) - but I didn't and thought I'd timed it well, at least it wasn't Everest. Lets see what left over 'Bol' and bread do.:shifty:

    Morning - the experimental basal timing experiment continues. I'd been doing the morning at 8.15 a.m., when I got to work, which was mostly fine... except chaos was already brewing when I arrived yesterday morning, I launched into whirlwind Japes sort it all out mode, and I clean forgot.

    So, when I realised at 6.00 p.m. (yes, it really was that kind of day and thank you Echo pen for solving the mystery of higher than usual figures for a very normal day's meals) and stopped being cross, but impressed I'd been active enough to cover up, I decided it was time for experiment 2 - revert to basal at 6.00 a.m. but change evening basal from 10.30 p.m. to 6.00 p.m.

    So far, so good.

    Planning on being as utterly anti-social as possible this weekend! I have no need to go to any shops, we're doing way too much Christmas stuff at work, have been for weeks, will be doing so for another fortnight and, as a result, my tolerance level for Christmas music has hit rock bottom. Maybe I need to follow the example of some of my students and wear ear defenders at all times...

    Morning chaps. Nothing to see here, just checking in. Did get a nice gangrenous diabetic foot last night though. It’s probably no longer attached to it’s owner. :D

    Hello friends,

    I had a bit of a lazy day, diabetes at 9.6 and my insulin was delivered this morning - the ice pack that it was in was partially frozen (1-2 panels solid crumbles of ice) and the rest wasn’t frozen, so I’m wondering if my insulin is okay.

    Greetings fellow pumpers and prickers, hope you are all having a good if maybe slightly damp day.

    Finally had to call Abbot as the Libre I was using was wildly out. It was great for my Libre figures as i was showing as running between 3.1 and 5.2 for almost 24 hours. Final straw was a reading of 3.4 on Libre and steady and a blood test of 7.4, so more than 100% out

    Phoned Abbot and they are sending out a new one

    Gangrenous diabetic foot:wtf::wtf: that sounds horrible
