    I was quite disappointed that Tescos didn’t have any strawberries and bananas, but I still bought Oatly cream and Alpro plain yogurt. I guess I’ll eat it plain.

    Facebook, it all tends to be music equipment, car parts & pet food... Would I be profiled 15 times more likely to have a chart topper & a breakdown on the way to a gig? :D

    A tentative good morning everyone, grey and more grey.
    On a much more positive note, Madam got smacked at 1am this morning so we woke to a half decent BG
    Fish for supper means a trip into town, hake if Ken's got any. If it stays dry, more work in the garden ie weeding which I hate. It seems not matter how often I get out there, the weeds have sprung up overnight............... bindweed being a particular pain and a tip visit.
    I've said it before but I don't know how I managed the garden and a job

    Hi @Gaffer type 1 - welcome to the madhouse!

    I agree to some extent but think there's a happy medium to be reached - you're never gonna control T1 with diet alone, so sometime you might as well go with the flow.

    Most of the time I'm around 80g of carb a day, then occasionally (if I feel unwell or really really p'd off) I'm gonna eat. And I pretty generally eat the breadbin, the biscuit barrel and then the fridge. Heck, even the dogs steer clear..... My other half says food is a great pleasure in life, insulin and dose adjustment is supposed to mean I can live normally - so, it won't do any harm to have a bash at that now and again. That's when curry or pasta happens .... and I will admit I make nice cakes!

    But smaller amounts of carb mean smaller amounts of insulin which mean smaller errors, and I do believe that. But we cook a lot ......

    I got some lindas cooking and a possible salad on a bun. I might not have a bun and have plain soy yogurt with an apple. Iced coffee to wash it all down.
    How are you?
    Oh dear, I hope you have everything at arms length

    Charge it using a battery pack in a pocket. Or you could tuck it into your bra like me and @porl69 do ;)

    I want some coffee.
    The coffee is made and in a travel cup by the front door in case I got a work call.
    Which I didn’t.
    But I’m covered in cats.

    Send help please.
