    I thought this was for the upcoming series for Snowpiercer at first!

    I want to go to the pool, jump in, swim laps for half an hour, take the slide three times and relax in the bubbly bath thing for a while before getting out, get dressed and drive home.

    I do not want to have to decide on a half or a whole slice of bread before jumping in, start watching by bg like a hawk after half an hour, trying to keep phone and meter safe and dry, trying to quickly dry a finger well enough to test, deciding on how many sweets or how much from my apple, testing again before driving home, being annoyed at my Libre because it's simply too slow for the swimming drop, and needing to remember to keep a close eye on my bg for half the day to prevent highs or lows from earlier miscalculations.

    Yes, I can do all that and enjoy the swimming pool but that's definetely not the same as simply go there for a quick swim in between other things.
    Rant over.

    I'll stay at home and throw a little private birthday party for Wolf, who turned 6 today :)

    Hi,

    I had no idea there was a series.. Looks like it's a "prequel" about 12 years prior to the events in the film plot?

    "From the creators of Orphan Black."

    I actually enjoyed that show.

    Yeah, I think we're getting it in the UK via Amazon. I think, like Hanna (also available on Prime), it stands completely alone from the film and is a different take on the story.

    Remember Orphan Black when it came out, it was an interesting premise but I didn't stick with it for the whole run of seasons. If I remember correctly, I was much more wound up in the world of Fringe at that time (which was excellent).

    Sometimes it pays to lower expectations & plan for something, should it go wrong...

    But in this case?

    "The eyes have it."

    I got my licence renewed, full on 3 years!
    For some reason, DVLA also sent me a seperate letter outlining my right to appeal?!!!

    Against what... :cool:

    Fringe looks interesting.. But i know what you mean. some shows should stop after the first series.
    David Tennant's portrayal of "Kilgrave" in Jessica Jones is worth a watch.

    People on a train journey separated by class with the "plebs" having no choice but to eat their own & serve a brutal hierarchy keeping the wheels turning..

    I saw it more as a metaphor.

    Waves feebly. Oh my, but this half term is knackering.

    I am so glad the Japes' Sad and Disappointed Face mostly works before I have to get to full-blown Riot Act. I think every single one of my lot has experienced it this week. That number of Riot Acts might have finished me off.

    Basal definitely cut back for now. Judo is working.

    Hello friends
    Auto mode has been good, not so good on high levels like above 10. I don’t know if running between 7-8mmol is good or problematic in future. But I’m happy that it’s less hypos/ mild hypos. I will be handing in my notice next week, ya girl out of there. There’s quite a few of us leaving so it’s some hot tea waiting to unfold. I’m going home soon too, so I’m very excited about that.

    Good evening @LooperCat . Contemplating as opposed to revising.

    Just the easy stuff then.:D:D:D.
    Biggest dilemma here is........long or short evening walk. Wife likes a 45 min walk. At her leisurely pace this equals a short walk. I don’t really mind a short walk, an hour up the gym earlier has put me in the plus for today’s exercise so far.

    BG's wanting to stay low all day and have eaten extra stuff I wasn't planning on. Now I am sick of anything sweet. I feel like the kid that eats too much at the birthday party..................................i am going to get on the exercise bike and hope my numbers stay stable enough.

    I agree @Antje77 , my husband can just go I'm going snorkeling but I have to get my Bg to a certain level, make sure I didn't have a lot of insulin prior, check and make sure I have my hypo treat in a water proof container, a more substantial snack in the car just in case, etc etc it is not a grab the towel and go as it is with him!
