    After yesterday I plan on having a more chilled day. One little rehearsal and the essay can be worked on from the comfort of my bed. I will be so happy when uni is finished for the year!

    Love to see what people have in their trolleys at the checkout @WuTwo I rarely go to the frozen food aisle so that sort of stuff is like another world. Oh and breakfast cereals too
    More than damp here @Robinredbreast so no work on weeds and nettles today. That's a bit of a disappointment because my marking has finished so that means I might have to do some housework. On the up side though, madam came in at 4.7 this morning but that was after whacking in a couple of units at midnight. I admit I ate chocolate in the evening even though my new regime says it's a no no.

    Oooo no, no injecting in the loo!!!!! Just think of all the yuk that congregate there. If people expect me to go to the loo to inject I ask them how they’d feel if their gp took them or their children to the loo to give them a vaccination.

    I’ve found that after years of eating stuff with less icing, fudge etc a little goes a long way and the usual cake load just cloys. Sorry knikki!

    We pretty generally make our pizza from start to finish - it's easier because some of the bought bases are more like cardboard than food. We're going to experiment with making bases that incorporate veg because we've seen them for sale - kale, beetroot or cauli but I understand the veg content is not that great.

    I'll web search and see what I can find, and I know the Bosh! guys have a recipe.

    3.1 this morning, delayed injection and had breakfast, 9.6 about 30mins later. 2 hrs after breakfast 6.3, although I may have just ruined it by having a sausage bap, probably more than the 30g carbs I estimated and probably needed more than the 2u I took, but with IOB from breakfast who knows what might happen - you wouldn't think I've been at this for 20+ years :rolleyes:

    Good morning caddies

    Straight(ish) line thru the night again :)
    @Jazz97 no way would I inject in the loo. Have always injected in full view of people. Don't like it, don't look! No one says a word when people use their inhalers in public!!!

    Afternoon, I have had a busy morning, especially trying to find my green recycling bin I put out yesterday for collection, eventually found it loitering with intent outside someone else's front gate :wideyed: I'm sure the bin men ( Environmental waste disposal team ) didn't do it :rolleyes:o_O

    Hi all, late on parade today, woke at 6 and new Libre said LO, checked and yes, under 3. Jelly babies to the rescue, went back to bed for an hour that somehow went to two and woke in mid 3s. So I've been chasing to catch up with myself all day, not helped by a diversion due to a road closure when I was trying to do some food shopping (for me and the dog - hers actually more urgent than mine!). And it was one of those totally inexplicable hypos, went to bed on a low but level 7, had had a very quiet evening, so who knows what marathon I ran in my sleep?

    Completely agree about hollow hypers, sounds like something someone dreamt up that they liked the sound of or something so decided to use it. Stress sends me high and I treat it exactly like any other high with the same results (as much as anything with T1 is ever 'the same' ;))

    Well, the quichelets worked, the quiche I made for dinner will be nicer because I forgot to add the herbs into the not-eggy mix for the little 'uns. Ah well. They taste alright, so that's nice.

    The pepperoni seitan worked amazingly well. I'm astonished to be honest. I can feel pizzas coming on tomorrow! (If I can persuade himself not to order the takeaway he is pining for). I might relent and say takeaway tomorrow and pizzas Friday. That'd be both of us happy.

    My son texted - he's gigging all over the place next month - got five booked in already. I can feel his happiness from here :happy: Dunno how he does it - full time job, and he teaches guitar on weekday evenings, and gigs at weekends.

    On the sofa - feet up. Our kitchen floor is very hard on feet for some reason, and I am barefoot in the house (and office although I do put my Berkinstocks on if I'm seeing a client). My feet are tired! Head's fine and raring to go. Husband is cream-crackered. I think I'll do dinner tonight.
