    Could I have a cup please? No sugar in mine - just a dash of double cream.

    Sorry, It's all gone and I don't have double cream, I have a dash of semi skimmed milk.

    @Robinredbreast . Well the thread lives to fight another day. Together we can all make this work. A bit of everything today and we've inspired others.
    7.7 I hope I go no lower.:).

    7.7 is a good reading, I was 9.8 but I hope mine won't go higher, but not banking on it.
    Yes a thread for all type 1's old, young, newly diagnosed, with advice, support and a laugh or two, as we certainly need it at times and some who are a bit long in the tooth too;) :p

    We’re actually out of tea bags so I’m having a big glass of water. 9.3. Going to bed shortly as a big trek at work tomorrow up Coomnadiha marking out a walking trail with orange posts. I’m taking 4 peanut butter sandwiches and hopefully no bolus apart from a small dose at breakfast. Hopefully no hypos tomorrow and a nice breeze to keep away the midge. Night all!

    I could never do the front crawl very well, I do the breast stroke. I have frozen shoulder's, so near impossible for me to even try to do the crawl again.

    Well I think all threads where you can chat and share worries or positive news are a great idea, I'd like to see more 'lurkers' join in too and giving everyone the chance to share their posts, we have so much to learn from each other.

    My day consisted of work and doing a 'living well with diabetes' course new to our trust so it's a bit of a test, then gymnastics with daughter and this evening went for a bike ride starting at 6.8 and then 3.1 30 mins later, I hadn't turned the basal setting down on the pump and only realised as I was cycling much slower... as it was going dark I gulped 2 glucotabs and rode home which was just up the road fortunately, the joys of exercise !
