    Yeah I need more insulin in the morning than I would for the same amount of carbs later in the day. No exercise really before the milk and cookie - I sound like a child haha - but I know I only need one unit for it. I just double checked it and it is actually 35G of carbs not 25G. Even more mad.

    I suppose it depends where day ends and night starts. :):):).
    But for me you are most definitely the first to post such a thought provoking post.
    I assume you’re not actually going too bed at this very moment. If you are, then sweet dreams.:)

    @Fairygodmother . What a wonderful name for your knee. Hamish, a name that conjure up many memories from my teenage years.
    I guess a few options would have been....... Neil / Kneel :)
    Tony/ toe Knee:)

    I’ll get my coat.:banghead:

    Love them! Hamish = ham (as in calves - human ones not a meat mixup + ish nearly the calf, and as I’m an old woman I should have weak hams, but no, it’s the knee that went knackety) I can also wear a sporran on it to keep it warm in cold weather with a special pocket for jelly babies?

    Between you and me , and let it go no further. At school 4 of us decided to set up our own little gang/ secret clan. Obviously we needed alternative names.....are you following? Hoping you won’t be needing any clues to my alter ego. It actually caught onto such an extent that even the teachers called me Hamish. This was back in the seventies when times were different :):):)

    Anyone experiencing difficulties in access the forum. Normally pages turn over really quick but for past2/3 days it is taking about 30 seconds for page to update. All of the time in bottom left corner is a small message "waiting for apis.google.com" whuich stays there even once page finally loads.

    All other websites I use seem fine. I have even set my computer back to factory default settings but made no difference. This happens with Chrome but Edge is even slower

    If you have issues like that, try logging out properly, as opposed to just closing the browser window, the logging back in again.

    If that doesn't help, then email [email protected] and it'll be looked into.
