    Hi @porl69 I was not aware of that until today when I was reading other parts of the forum.

    I am off to Icmeler, where i have been going for many years, love the place so relaxed and laid back as well as safe and clean resort

    My GP is utterly awesome, so I can cope with the odd bits of incompetence from everyone else, as the awesomeness makes up for the rest! Which is a total change around in 18 months since I began seeing this particular GP when the DSN I had been mostly seeing left. I was on the verge of changing practice at that point.

    I've not yet settled on a regular pharmacy, but am just about to now I'm all sorted with the on-line stuff, as long as Utterly Sensible Pharmacy Assistant who is usually on in the evenings (the time I usually toddle along to collect things) remains with them.

    Between them, they've minimised the mistakes!

    Aaaaaaarsk a Thermos flask, ask a thermos flask.
    It's the only thing to know what's hot & cold
    Ask a Thermos flask, that's it's only task.
    It's a clever bit of tech that's what I'm told..

    I just remembered, I don't drink tea either. Which is probably why I don't eat biscuits. Or maybe it's the other way round

    I just don't do the taste of tea. Love coffee. I tend to forget I have a cup nearby & tend to glug it cold.

    Yes, I do that too. Or have half a cup left for hours, so rather than waste it, must top up with some more coffee granules and hot water. My nearest and dearest think that is disgusting ,but I'm not the one fishing soggy broken biscuits from the bottom of a cup.

    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
