    A very late happy new year all, busy day here, good to see you on parade @Scott-C in light of the bets on what time you'd surface! I've already been to bed, wanted an early night, can't sleep as I'm paying for a busy day with bl**dy sciatica so got up to take some painkillers, waiting for them to kick in before I go back to bed. Still, got a lot of what needed doing done.

    Glad those of you who celebrate New Year had a good one!

    Booked an extra day off so at the moment sort of OK.

    Was going to the gym, get BSL down but looking at the frost on the car, warm inside and coffee is far more tempting so maybe later :rolleyes:

    @therower yes the joke was on the monitor resolution :hilarious:

    @Mel dCP What was Aquaman like?

    Not back in work until Monday.
    BS is being very well behaved with minimum effort the last few days. It’ll all change I’m sure but for the moment I’ll bask in it being easy peasy.
    Grandkids sitting today. Manic fun will shortly commence:):):).
    Have a good day everyone.

    Floating along on about 35 to 40 g carbs per day and, except for exercise, my bolus, basal and BSLs are behaving.
    Just feeling like lots of sleep. But the weather is hot so that is my excuse. No man flu, no keto flu allowed !!!
    BSLs rise 4.6 --> 9.6 mmol/l after walking to library and back, 4 hours after breakfast, no snacks. And then I mistimed reducing the basal rate before the start of the exercise-related downturn in BSL because I had corrected for the 9.6 mmol/l. D'oh !!
    Ah, well I can always fine tune it. Off to the store tomorrow for seaweed to help with the diet!!
    Steel cannulas are holding up well but I have decided to change them every two days as recommended (rather than every 3 days as per the plastic cannulas). I am hoping that less insulin in one spot will cause less scarring so more sites and less hassle with insulin absorption longer term.. That is the theory!!!
    I just need another 50 years to get this diabetes thing pegged !!!

    Woke with a high BG today.
    I am putting it down to the stress of having to work today after an amazing 2 weeks away.
    I have hundreds of emails to read and I am trying to build up the enthusiasm to do so.

    One of the disadvantages of working from home is the lack of colleagues to chat about the Christmas break with for the first morning back.

    Ho hum - I'll try to look forward to the gym (for the first time in over 2 weeks) once I finish work.
    Unlike @therower my gym is walking/running distance so I have no excuse about scraping ice from the car windscreen although it is certainly warmer in than out.

    @helensaramay . No frost here today. Almost a pleasant day. @Knikki is having frost problems :).
    Still not sure it warrants missing a gym workout:). Perhaps we should shame him into scraping the windscreen.;)

    Good morning all, back to the deployment of advanced distraction techniques to avoid doing the things that must be done, or work, as some of you call it.

    Last night started a new sensor, it just decided to show low, hoping it will start working better over the course of the day.

    Morning and a happy new year to all you wonderful people. Partied and stayed at a very good friends house, 5 sets of parents, and 10 kids (I think!) - it was crazy, aged 5 or 6 to 13 or there abouts all but 1, girls..........poor lad!

    BG was as expected...........

    Back to work tomorrow and normal routine thankfully.

    @hh1 I do hope your sciatica clears up quickly, I’m still not completely back to normal from my bout in the summer.

    Thanks @slip, it's been going on since August and nothing I've tried seems to really make any difference. Time to go back to the medics for a diagnosis that's more than just 'sciatica' I think. Hope yours continues to improve.

    @hh1 sympathies re the sciatica. It’s a devil of a pain.
    It’s interesting listening to everyone talk about going back to work. I am retired, going on 3 and a bit years now and have to say I have not missed it one bit. Though I loved my job. Life is very busy (too busy at times) but does have a certain routine about it. Was itching to get going yesterday, so as hubby was out notching up the birds I took down all the decs and packed them away. Then blitzed the downstairs. Blitzing upstairs today. Back to grandson duties, gardening and swim training next week. Then at the end of month parents for a while when mum has knee replacement. Add in food shopping, litter picking and meetings, there is absolutely no time to go out to work.
    The fly in the appointment has been sugar levels. Sky high! New basal today so hoping for a result. Fit as a fiddle and pretty strict eating and no alcohol for last few days and still high grr!
