    Morning all,
    Happy it's another badge day for me, 5.1 and guess it's because I had very light and small evening meal. Light? 4 pork dumplings in Sichuan soup!!. This 5 isn't going to be repeated tomorrow as we're meeting a friend for a drink late afternoon and will probably eat.
    Yesterday was bizarre, the trainee doctors I met were 1st year medical students. I'm not really sure what the purpose of the meeting was to be honest but they asked questions. I hope I gave them a little insight into how one person deals with T1. I hope it helped.

    I'm even later on parade! Slept until I woke naturally, and will go back to bed this afternoon just to bank some ZZZs for nightshift tonight. Bloods in the high 7s overnight, so I turned all my high alarms off because I was knackered :D (kept the "really" high 10mmol one on though. And the hypo ones).

    DD was my problem in school.....I am a lazy speaker, I pronounce three as free, a fair bit of Welsh is dd and my speaking of Welsh can be VERY misleading :hilarious:

    Afternoon all. I've been to an initial clinic appointment to talk about pump therapy today. I've had a look at both and have come away with some literature for the Minimed 670G and Omnipod with a demo pod to try. Lots of reading and researching to begin to see if I think if it would suit me and the differences between the two I've seen. :bookworm:

    Afternoon, all just having a quick cup of tea before I go into battle ( school escort lol) I was gardening this morning, planting some Dahlia's and putting in a new border edging, as the old one was getting a little ragged, had to stop because of 3.4, but soon carried on because it started raining and I wanted to get that job done.
    Oh, I hit my fore finger on my left hand with the mallet, it's a little swollen, but not too bad, as I have another 9 digits I can use :)

    Brilliant, I know some bits, but I'd really love it when you say something in Welsh that I get the translation so I can upgrade what little I've got and learn some more
    How would you say "I've got T1" or would you frame it differently?
