    Hello friends,

    Happy Sunday! Work was so and so yesterday, I was told off for not wearing pink for Valentine’s Day theme. I wore pink on Friday but I didn’t realised I had to do the same for Saturday. I was at two different sites yesterday to cover for someone else at another restaurant so I wore the usual work uniform. But anyway, I met another diabetic yesterday because her table of friends were joking around if they can give their organs to pay their bill and I said I’ll accept your pancreas.

    What if you don’t possess anything pink? Will they provide it?

    Laziest weekend on record. Combination of Storm Dennis, a cold brewing, the end of a grim half term and sheer exhaustion made anything more energetic than making the next easy meal unappealing.

    So, I have done some basal tests and a bit of lazy day ratio adjusting whilst re-acquainting myself with my bed and my sofa.

    I did just about make it to church for organ playing duties.

    Purple is a kind of dark and bluish pink, right? I'd say it counts :)

    No, my mum was quite angry and said they should have provided the pink shirts. I haven’t earned much for the last 4 weeks so I chose to live instead of buying a pink shirt for one weekend.

    I feel "red harts" are the order of the day regarding attire on this occasion. Maybe your employers would have seen fit to issue a traditional waiters apron with appropriate design..?

    Good morning, another start to the week
    With work, children and partners
    Some solace we may want to seek
    With hypo's and hyper's, a stark reality check
    But diabetes can do one, it's Monday
    So what the heck :D

    Happy Monday folks :)

    Morning all, I did 24hrs in target yesterday! but had a slight rise over night and unfortunately the breakfast 'bump' just took me out of range this morning - must try harder! :playful:

    @LooperCat revising diabetes - yeah you already know it but could any questions be based on old school knowledge, text book stuff and not real life? And I presume you did the practical revision on the male reproductive anatomy? o_O :D Love your Triumph, looks mean! Oh and have you dried out yet - hear it was very wet your way?

    Morning all!

    Liver's clearly woken up or just decided I needed to get on and do something more energetic than slump around binging on favourite comfort TV and DVDs. A 7 point dump is most unfair, after days of good behaviour, though.

    So, as it looks slightly less blustery and wet out there I'm off for a walk. Car hired for the rest of the week from tomorrow so I'll do a big shop then before heading off for a few days. Given how empty the cupboards, fridge and chest freezer deliberately are, (Chest freezer will be switched off whilst I'm away for a good defrost then restocked once I'm back) that's a good excuse to go out for lunch at least! I did eat the weirdest combinations of food over the weekend!

    I must look for the one which says "I may rise but shine is not really in my repertoire." when I am sufficiently caffeinated!

    Happily our lessons are based on current research, it’s very much an evidence based profession and things change in line with modern thinking. Although they are very strident that ketosis is a BAD THING and I suppose for most people it is. Books only as have been home alone this weekend! It’s still very stormy here, quite a wild ride over the mountain to Swansea...

    Happy Monday all
    Must say I was a bit damp the weekend, loads of flooding around the area but luckily nothing for me. Plus I live on top of a mountain and no chance of flooding!
    Bloods behaved the weekend...as well as could be expected
