    Morning all, not much going on here, again, blood sugar wise, but I'm not complaining, blood sugar I love when you're boring, please be as boring as you want to be.

    Just put a new sensor on to soak this morning, changing this evening. Libre has had a weird effect on me, I can feel myself becoming more sociable, very strange. Has anyone else had any changes that go beyond better blood sugar control.

    I'm thinking I might actually be so sociable that I buy my downstairs neighbour a token Christmas gift. She is early 60s, very tough, been in prison, so if anyone has any ideas what might be appropriate I'd welcome them. I might go for a Christmas food type gift.

    Poor seagulls, a previously healthy life upset by humans.
    Favourite seaside bird-watching experiences are diving gannets and scurrying waders.

    I think it's fair to give @Knikki enough time to get there before you eat it, like half an hour, maybe.

    Morning all - good luck today @karen8967

    Not a great start woke at 5am at 16.5mmol/l have only just got down to single figures after correcting all morning, did a set change before bed and was 6.4 then but started rising up until I woke at 5am, insulin flow was blocked, although working ok now, feels like i've been out partying all night (yes I can still remember how that feels..!!)

    It’s Older Daughter’s birthday on Friday. I’ve made her cake, decorated it (the style’s more of a naive thing, a Grandma Moses barge painting rather than bake-off) and drenched it in brandy, and it’s sitting on the kitchen table protected by an upturned tin. Lucky @Por69 and @Knikki and the seagulls don’t know where the table is

    Bummer! I know how you feel! Did you correct via pump or needle?

    Thanks Colin, I wasn't thinking straight when I woke so did a bolus on the pump, with a bit of clarity I would of approached it differently and used a pen from the fridge, sometimes you need someone with common sense to tell you what to do when you find yourself in this situation.

    Keep lurking if you need to @Knikki. For all of us Xmas is a stressful time of year. Maybe the people with an odd street number could celebrate it at one time and the even street numbers 6 months earlier or later. Not sure what street number Buckingham palace is, but at least the PM has an identifiable street number !!:):):)
    And here is a bit of a tease about cakes and all. www.OhDeerSugar.com

    Have just stuck that in to Google Maps since when have you been at the bottom end of the universe? :shifty::hilarious:

    It would be do-able however, waiting for a parcel delivery which will be around 12:00 so your safe to eat it :p

    Yes, I'm never at my sharpest first thing in the morning either! I only ask because I've had so many 'failed' or too-slow corrections via the pump. It took me many years of pumping to let go of the idea that it can handle it all for me...
