    If you're watching rugby, Helen, it should be with a single malt, not malt loaf!

    Morning

    Coffee consumed feel OK, low carb breakfast consumed earlier now running 5.0, not bad....

    As for servers well I wish I had the job of my altered ego Captain Scarlet it must be easier to deal with The Mysterons than the foibles of Microsoft Server.

    Looks like @helensaramay is having more luck with Unix based systems than I am so I will have a full blown caffeine full coffee later to celebrate your success :)

    Good morning all
    Loving my mate Mike (at the moment!)....90% in target yesterday, spoilt a bit by 2 hypos in the night which I have now adjusted my basal for as it they have happened on 2 consecutive nights.

    @Knikki Dub - My all time favorite is "Dub Side of the Moon" by Easy Star All Stars top album. Max Romeo & The Upsetters p War Ina Babylon (I grew up on that album lol. A few artists to look out for are Roots Manuva, Asian Dub Foundation (Had an amazing white label album of theirs which my ex wife sold....GRRRRR) and Lee "Scratch" Perry to name a few :)

    ORRRRR a Rum laden malt loaf hmmmm :)

    Happy and glorious morning to you all......What? it's Monday morning........

    Breakfast cereal is always 60g of carbs, inject for that then what ever's in the cupboard, nutrition label checked, weighed out to be 60g of carbs and bobs you're uncle my graphs are ALWAYS as smooth as a babies bottom :hilarious: :eek:

    Had a busy weekend re-doing or rather starting to re-do the en-suite, the basin came out the other day, toilet and associated wall frame and saniflo removed this weekend, and heater and dehumidifier been going all weekend - not that I made it wet, we've had numerous little leaks oh and one big one when the wife switched the saniflo off and managed to get the toilet flush stuck open.........The toilet installation was in accordance to its usage. I'll say no more and give the moderators a break.

    But BGs have been good all weekend, medtrum sensor started playing up last night, reported I was 18(!) when BG was 10, and even calibrating it back down the graph soon headed back up and it finally gave up the ghost this morning. Now have a libre on with some new barrier spray, fingers crossed this works.

    Got my Hb1ac back today. I'm 37 !!

    Happy with that. 4 and a half years after diagnosis so I'm really pleased with it. Down from 52 from my previous bloods 7 months or so ago.

    Question from an uninitiated non pump user:

    When changing the basal for the above do you change the time slot prior to the hypo event and if so 10mins, 30mins, a n hour or 2 before the event? how do you work that out?

    Afternoon guys, hope you're all ready for the week. Woke on 6.5, bedtime 6.8 :happy: My son was meant to be popping round this morning, but last week he had another seizure and this time a GP is making sure he get's all the right tests done, so he is feeling a bit tried and drained, he did say 'what will be, will be', but I know, deep down he is really anxious. My mum had epilepsy and his paternal granddad and his uncle, both had brain tumour's, uncle survived. But I am keeping an open mind and crossing my finger's.
    Bought some tomato seeds on Friday, so going to plant them in small flower pots this afternoon, I love home grown Toms :):hungry:

    Lots of groups tend to move across various styles, Dub I think was more a very bass heavy reggae, originally and certainly listening to Mungo's Hifi would match that.

    Propellerhead sounds Drum & Bass which seems to get very fast depending on the track, rather fun to listen to.
    Underworld has been around for a while, first came across them on Anne Nightingale show a few years ago but they seme to jump across many kinds of styles but for the most part Dance music.

    Well that's my take on it and I like both of them as I have a fairly wide like when it come to music :)

    Afternoon all, rubbish start to the day here. 5.2 when I woke up, 5.9 with a hrizontal arrow when I bolused for breakfast, two hours later 15.1 - ***? I have no idea. Big (for me) correction, down to a respectable 6.2 before lunch. Sometimes it really is just the socks you put on...

    Greetings my pancreatically challenged chums, hope you are all having a good day. After my horrendous BG of last week whilst on holiday abroad, all things back to normal now with a figure of 80 % of time in target, something I dont think I have ever achieved before. Maybe goes to prove all of my worries last week and high BG are simply because of my overactive mind and worry about going hypo abroad

    Anyhoo, not sure if you may have seen this article which was on main Diabetes UK page. My wife who is type 2 was taking Metformin for years and she was having issues with it. About 3 years ago she was prescribed Forxiga and what a difference. Her HBa1C improved dramatically, she has lost about 20% of her body weight despite eating much more. She feels so much better for it

    Could this tablet also be another useful tool for type 1 if it gets approval from NICE for type 1's. It has been approved by EMA
