    Hi @Scott-C have to agree with your post and my own experience of, in our area, the ADAPT course. I was also diabetic for 37 years before going on course and had pretty much not bothered a great deal with. The course has toatlly fired me up, and by attending the course this meant I met criteria for Libre which has also fired me up.

    If you get a chance to go on this course I can recommend it no matter what stage you are at in your type 1 life

    Bless Karen
    So many dedicated caring folk like yourself working and missing their family time at Christmas and New Year

    I know that the ward I used to work on had all day visiting over the Christmas and New Year period rather than the usual afternoon and evening visiting slots

    Karen I salute you

    DAFNE was a real eye opener to me when I attended 2 years ago

    So much information learned

    I’d recommend it to anyone with T1

    Morning all. It's the shortest day today. I've got 7hrs 47mins starting at 8.09 to enjoy Friday and the winter solstice but not sure where to start.
    Madam revealed 5.3, very happy as I had 5 frites for supper along with some caraway, beetroot and horseradish. Might start reading the Kite Runner

    Morning all, this very wet, shortest day. Mad Friday also, according to my policeman son.
    @SueJB read The KiteRunner some years ago. Very good.
    Sitting on a 6.2 about to go for my swim fit session. Will I need a jelly baby or not, will assess before getting in.

    I am celebrating the shortest day of the year with the shortest working day - 2.30 p.m. finish rather than 3.00 p.m. as is usual for Friday! The main advantage of being one of the early starters at Main Paid Workplace is that I finish earlier on two days a week, 3.00 p.m rather than 4.00 p.m., which means those days have become chores/shopping evenings.

    Then, I'm celebrating the early get out with the fact we get paid today rather than on the last working day of the month by going and tackling the shopping so I don't have to shop again until about next Thursday-ish.

    Morning all, blood sugar overnight bit higher than I want, but ok now.

    I decided yesterday to celebrate the winter solstice, somehow. After thinking about it, I'm going to try going up Calton Hill to see it I can see the sunset over the castle, not sure this will work, but can only try.

    Good morning y'all, waking to a 9.0 rising to 9.8 with my feet on the floor so waiting the injection down before eating, the rain seems to have stopped so a last attempt at working I think, looking on the bright side the days get longer from today :)
