    Hi @porl69 , have you been before. Where are you staying and do you have any usual haunts if you have been before. I have been about 20 times or so

    A rather excellent day diabetes wise.
    Full English with pre bolus and top up during eating worked a treat ( makes a change :)). Didn’t go above 8 after eating. That’s good in my world.
    An hours cardio dropped me into the 4’s, 2 Rich teas sorted that ( biscuits are today’s must eat treat ).
    Pre bolused prior to a meal out tonight. Top up as food was served. Enchilada was lovely. Somehow I’ve got it about right again. Cruising nicely at 6.
    So the one thing that is guaranteed now is this...............tomorrow will be totally different :banghead::banghead::banghead:.

    Wow. This is our 5 time to Turkey. 2 in marmaris and 2 icmeler. We stay at Ekinci Palace. Basic but it does us. Everywhere as you know is amazing to eat. Would really recomend the Megadianna boat trip. Have a few meals at 7 brothers in maramaris. And you have got to go and para glide

    We have stayed all over Icmeler but going back to Oren Hill apartments, about 5 minutes from your apartments a bit further into village area. For boat trips we normally go on the smaller boats with no loud music just a nice relaxing day with lovely food. Para gliding for me would be a no no, I am not great with heights. I asssume that you need to let your insurance company know you will be para gliding.

    Have a great time when it comes

    Good morning guys :)

    It is my husband's birthday and I booked a day off work. We were going to go out but sadly the car is with the mechanic until he's sorted out some noise it's making. He and husband know what it is but Carl's a mate and said he'd do it as it would be quicker and easier. Mate's rates too!

    So - until we get the car back we're here at home. I thought of suggesting I cook up some seitan and we have steak & chips for dinner. Or seitan in some other form. Lots of ways to prepare it once I've made the basic gunk. Wait and see - we're still at the silence & coffee stage of the morning at the moment..

    Good morning guys, it's Friday again. Awoke on double figure's and the Libre showed steady, but I still took a correction, so will check again soon, finger prick too.
    Happy Friday, hope you have a good one :)

    5.6 this morning, bound to mess this up today :D - it's Friday!

    I like coffee but to me coffee is coffee, theres never that much difference in taste. Tea on the other hand - theres so many different types and flavours - this may hark back to primary school where we had a Sri Lankan girl (it wasn't called Sri Lanka then!) in our class (back in the day where I lived they were the only non-white family!) one day her and her mother came in to school and did a theme day where we made and sampled different Ceylon teas and the girls were shown how to wear Sarees - I remember that day like it was yesterday but it was almost 40 years ago!

    Morning all. We’re also at the “silence and coffee stage” of the morning...

    Also woke up a little on the low side, sensor on its last day and is reading me as dead. Hey ho.

    @WuTwo - I’m definitely going to try making seitan when I can get the requisite bits! I’ve made some fabulously crispy tofu chips, so keen to try new things.

    Got to pop to my surgery this morning to pay for the sign off on the occupational health thing for my course, and then we’re poppig down to Somerset to see my dad as it’s his birthday tomorrow.

    Have a good one, friends x

    Morning Campers!

    Yesterday's hypo head has gone and I am ready for my lunchtime spin and evening theatre.
    There are no biscuits (dunked or undunked) on the agenda and neither will there be any coffee.
    There may be tofu and their may be cinnamon toast (not together although the tofu packet did say "goes with anything")

    Happy Birthday Mr WuTwo. I hope you get out and enjoy it. Or stay in and enjoy it. I am sure you have some yummy food in your cupboards and anyone willing to make seitan is very capable of knocking up a feast.

    Enjoy Friday!

    I have realised I have a "Phantom Libre".
    My latest one expired last night so I took it off this morning but I still scanned my arm. :banghead:

    I did a cannula set change this morning and left the old set on my stomach, it was only when I was getting dressed that I noticed too many tubes stuck on my tum, along with the G6 sensor it all looked a bit complicated..

    A common occurrence :). When I’ve not got a Dexcom sensor on I still take care not to knock it.:banghead:
