    Mr G Man must be on good money to afford a prestigious criminal law firm on the salary working as an edible toilet door sign...
    Though his "second job" as a hypo stopper is invaluable! :D

    Whoah, J, we're talking about two different things here, although they do both serve the same purpose at the end of the day.

    Yer actual physically baked in the hot hell of an oven G Man is a hypo stopper when you eat him.

    The libre G Man is a little gingerbread shaped icon in the libre reader screen which says how much iob there is if you tap him. Hugely useful knowing iob when deciding whether or not to correct or not, so he's doing as much as his baked cousin in reducing hypos.

    Cheat code to get it is CAA1C in settings/professional options, and then twiddle through the settings, the wee fella turns up bottom right of the home screen when a bolus is entered.

    You can only eat what they give you, but I’m so excited by the research that I’ll take one for the team on that.

    Just arrived at my mum’s after an eight hour, 300 mile slog with a breakdown in Oxfordshire. That I fixed, because I’m amazing :couchpotato: Clearly being part cyborg has enhanced my mechanical abilities.

    Sugars been a bit pants, I suspect it’s the beginning of shark week resistance but didn’t want to up my basal rate with so many miles to cover this evening. Just corrected as and when. Have upped it now, so let’s hope it’ll settle down.

    Yes, I can see in a trial/study they'd want that sort of control.

    I'm only majorly in awe of your mechanical abilities. My repair solution would be to call the recovery people, whilst sulking like mad.

    Morning all, I had a cruddy night's sleep and woke to find I'd put on half a kilo ...HOW???
    and for another kick in the posterior... Madam BG is up to her usual tricks 6.4
    It also rained yesterday so the 75 tulips are still patiently waiting to be planted
    On a brighter note, it's sunny and it feels warmer.

    Morning y'all, a waking 11,1 rising to 12 by the time I'd got downstairs, and I'm sitting at my pc watching the rain turn to flipping snow, yeah snow, only 5 minutes worth but I'm not happy as I planned to give the lawns their last cut ready for the last 'green' bin collection next week.
    Child went back to mums yesterday so the house is very quiet and I've a weekend catching up on things I've neglected to do whilst she was here, gym later and some chilling after that :)

    Edit; @Mel dCP good luck with your trial!

    Yippee! Whilst 9.5 is not the greatest to wake up to, after cake and chips yesterday evening it could've been so much worse, I am not complaining and it's adjusted back down after a brisk hour's walk in the autumnal chill and glorious sunshine.

    I've decided I don't like the word "correction" and am going for adjusting instead.

    Just been watching pictures of snow on the weather forecasts! That is so unreasonable in October.

    Does the gingerbread man like Gingerbread Gin (my latest infusion experiment)?

    Hmmmm............... a bit cannabalistic I would say. But in gingerbread man land who knows what is acceptable.

    Good morning and Happy Saturday to you all, no work today, yayyyyyyyyyyy :happy::happy::happy::happy::happy::happy::happy::happy::happy:
    I was awoken this morning by a strange noise outside, it was a neighbour scraping his car windshield, frost !:wideyed: and so bright and sunny outside :joyful:
    Awoke on a 3.7. so many hypo's yesterday and before bed, as the job can be physical and very busy too. Going to put the washing out on the line now and hoping to have a non pressured, relaxing, chilled out day, that would be bliss.
    Don't forget :- PUT YOUR CLOCKS BACK SUNDAY edited - @ 2am, (well I do mine before I go to bed) so an extra hour for us all :)
