    Evening colanders,

    Hoping to pick the brains of the collective.

    For a while now, particularly when lying in bed trying to sleep at night, I have this overwhelming urge to move my legs - it's uncomfortable, almost painful, to keep them still. I don't really know how to describe it. It's there a bit during the day too, constant fidgeting, but not nearly as bad as at night.

    I have a theory, but equally my degrees are in biochemsitry, neuroscience, and hypochondria, not medicine, so was hoping for some wisdom. Is it Restless Legs?

    No flossing at our carol concert, just a year five fit of giggles. I've been running high all day. Sorry to hear about the lows for everyone.

    HI @SueJB, sometimes hypos set off eating ++. Perhaps as an anxiety reliever. And yes, mood changes with BSL change are classic diabetes - but it gets me nowhere as an excuse, "My BSLs did it" is not an effective defensive argument in the court of marital justice !!

    Ooooooooh, Lantus spells, Glargine hell
    Lantus nights can stray...
    What a treat when the blood depletes & a low is in your tray.

    Oh what joy I had, as I over Treated thrice.
    Wishing I'd got up for work with a modest BG rise .

    Hoy! :D

    I love my 21 year old Skoda, the fuel light doesn't work, the radio only works in the summer when it's dry, the sun roof leaks, the straps on the boot shelf are broken and the central door locking doesn't function and the body work is starting to go rusty. But the guy at my garage has said to keep it so I will until it starts becoming too expensive to repair.

    Humm, now you got me thinking.. The fuel lights normally only come on when the tank has depleted to the point of giving a few clicks to find a pump? Is your fuel gauge functioning normally? Could just be a bad earth grounding on the fuel gauge sender? Can be a simple fix re routing the ground to chassis as opposed to the usual ground to tank then on to chassis, which can with a vehicles age happen?

    Radio in summer, dirty contact with the fuse line or maybe in the actual radio controls? I've seen switches get like this when Autumn sets in, they can get munged up a little like the old style roller ball mice on computers...

    The CL, could be a control unit? Or if it's operated by the driver's door lock? (not remote.) with age & constant use, a break in a wire located in the driver's door loom twix the door & behind the front wing..?

    Can't help you with the sunroof leak. But my guess could be blocked drainage running from the SR guttering through a narrow gauge pipe down to the bottom of the vehicle near the cills?

    Good frosty morning everyone, winter’s really here. Big jumpers and fleece lined leggings day today. With shorts for the active blokes among us? Now where did I put that old thick skirt?

    Thanks @Jaylee part of the delight in driving the Skoda is the weirdness and malfunctioning. The fuel gauge hasn't worked for years but it's never stopped me taking it to France and Poland. The radio is the damp. The mechanic did something to disable the central locking, can't remember why................. too long ago:hilarious:
    I'm impressed by your knowledge

    Morning all, off to the podiatrist for the first time ever, to get my “weird” toe looked at. So that’s nice. Hope you all have a good day :)

    Good morning y'all, a waking 4.8 for me, yesterdays waking low took forever to come up but I was ok when it did.

    The weekends car fault has made the week a pain, mums house sale completes tomorrow so keys have to be in today and I've another tip trip to do, oh and a washer to shift, a washing machine the fitter's broken the on/off tap on so I'm hoping I can do it with pliers shortly.

    Cold out again :)

    Morning all, 6.1 this morning after a curry last night, did have to correct a 12.something before going to bed, was 8.something when I thought I should do my second dose but thought maybe I didn't have as much rice as I thought.....I'll correct later if needed, and sure enough!

    Loving the christmas jingles!
