    Morning all, still dark.
    Up at very silly o'clock so marked some scripts, only 200 more to go.
    I've done basal unlike yesterday a surprising 6.0 on opening my eyes. Going to try and get on a bike today or at least do some sort of exercise. I can just feel the fatty blob belly growing as I sit in front of the computer marking. Getting a hunch back too!

    What do you teach?

    My students are very familiar with my Spike App alarms and are constantly checking if I am
    in range

    I’m just keeping my alarms to a buzz on my watch when I’m in the classroom. As a supply, none of the kids know I’m T1 :)

    Morning y'all, a waking 12.1, it seems to have risen around 3am and I've had an extra unit in my bolus, I'm hoping to get on early today as rain's forecast for lunch so waiting my blood down is quite tedious having got the young un up at 06.45, I'm avoiding the kitchen as the porridge pot's winking at me :p

    Can't remember the last time I had a banana.
    The English pronunciation of this used to have my Spanish speaking students laughing their socks off

    Morning teabags, I’ve been off the forum for a couple of days and missed you all.
    Chips? No gravy, nothing wet, except vinegar, they HAVE to stay crisp. Salt and vinegar and tom sauce to dip them in. A fork? Nah, but why do they taste better eating them with hands?
    @frannon, welcome to the forum. It’s a lovely place where online friends give each other support and leven the day with humour. I’m so sorry you’ve had a bad deal with your family and your health’s affected! It’s sometimes extra hard to keep T1 in order if the rest of the world seems to be falling apart but it’s worth it. Decent blood sugars make us feel better, mentally and physically. Ask for help from your team. Ask for help from your DSN. Their help to get you in a better place physically is a sign that they care.
    You also need hugs so I’m sending you virtual hugs

    Thriving? They're taking over the world! In summer it's not unusual to see a 'column' of about 15-20 just circling. Magnificent birds.

    It was really dark this morning wasn't it? Winter equinox in a few days :meh:

    Was 3.4 this morning, so might drop basal again if this keeps happening............

    Hi @Fairygodmother, I think it is licking one's fingers after dipping and eating the chips which emboldens the taste.
    In Australia the seagulls are conniving and clever thieves so whether eating fish or chips, we are extra vigilant if by the seaside !!

    I seem to recall red kites were rare in Poldark's time.

    Morning fellow colanders

    Well looks like I have joined the "issues with car" club. Son was out last night, said he left lights on for about 15 mins as he was on his phone talking to friend. Tried to start the car and nothing at all. Called Green flag and it started immediately after jump. So booked into Halfords for a free winter check including battery

    On plus side my BG for last week are showing their lowest ever average whoo hoo

    Enjoy your day

    Given @karen8967 's joust with the Libre givers maybe we need a term like 'Libre-whisperer', the skill of obtaining a Libre supply.

    I have an appointment for the knackety knee! Yeehaw! Dancing a one-legged mental jig - at last, being able to walk again without pain’s getting closer.
